The original Meals for Meows formula is already pretty good. The grain free formulation is a welcome addition, substituting brown rice for sweet potato. Due to the similarities please refer to the original formula review as most of the information is applicable.

Sweet potato is one of the best selections for a grain free food, so this is good to see. It’s worth saying brown rice is also a good choice for the grain formula, so the ingredients are consistent between the two. Cats, being carnivores, get little nutrition from such ingredients, but all kibbles need a carbohydrate ingredient to bind the kibble together.

Mackerel and Salmon as the main ingredients are good selections of named fish, offering an excellent source of protein as well as much needed omega fats for wellbeing and coat. Despite common belief, fish isn’t a natural diet for a cat and arguably shouldn’t be fed consistently. It’s worth feeding a fish-based food as part of a rotation, and it’s a good choice for cat’s suffering allergies from other meat sources.

I’ve found Meals for Mutts and Meows to be a good option for pets who’ve suffered allergies from other more commercial foods, and I rarely hear anything negative about their products. They’re an Australian company too, so that’s a bonus.

I noticed my local pet supplies shop has started carrying this product on their shelves-

Would this be better, worse or the same as the “Mackerel and Salmon grain free” that they’re eating now?

Looks exactly the same just not grain free and using different meat proteins.

You could change it every few months if you want, feeding fish all the time isn’t a great idea because of toxin build up, specially with salmon.

Just bought this for my cat as I’m looking at trying new brands to find something I’m really happy with. Unfortunately he won’t touch it! I’m sure it has something to do with the size and shape of the actual biscuits. They are very small and almost heart shaped which he hasn’t liked. I saw him tackling them and attempting but just couldn’t seem to crunch them. He is quite fussy though and seems to prefer the bigger biscuit size like. He didn’t like Canidae Pure either and they are very small biscuits. Looks like I’ll stick to Applaws and Blackhawk after all these attempts at trying new brands every won’t eat are sending me bankrupt! I’d love to see the size of the biscuits stated in reviews (or even better on the actual product packages) so I can steer clear of the small ones and stop wasting my money.

I like bigger ones for Rusty while on Angels hand I know she prefers smaller, she’s very quick to bite us full force but kibble nope haha.

Rusty he loves food so he swallows small kibble whole and kibble expands so I would rather him not do that, Artemis is small but it digests easily as in I dropped it into water and it started melting immediately so I let him swallow a couple whole but it’s mostly fish and potato Blackhawk for him.

Ivory coat fish formula was quiet big, I remember leaving a review on pet warehouse about it being maybe a little too big for small dogs.
Alright yeah I wrote the one con was the kibble was a little large, I’ve only ever had the fish formula my next kibble might be the venison formula as I’ve wanted that one for quiet some time and then I’ll know if they are all big or not.

I have burmese and tonkinese cats and I feed Meals for Meows because of good ratings and it is the most affordable. Cats are very healthy with beautiful coats, but the burmese are a little on the fat side and are always looking for other food. I have a kitten who won’t eat Meals for Meows, so I bought her Royal Canin Mother and Baby Cat. Bit concerned after reading your RC review, I am wondering if there is something better for the kitten.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
