Catit® Dinners - Fine Dining for the Finickiest of Cats

Cats are obligate carnivores which means they need to eat meat! They are also know as finicky eaters. They may eat one brand/flavor one day and turn up their noses the next day. I learned a hard lesson with my previous Persian Cat about feeding a variety of food. The company changed the recipe and she was so finicky that she didn't want to eat anything but her treats. There is also the issues of cats eating when they are sick, especially with an Upper Respiratory Infection because they can't smell their food, so they don't eat, but they MUST eat!

We reviewed a line of cat food and treat products from Catit® several months ago and were singing the praises of the Dinners, Treats, and Creamy Snacks. Truffle and Brulee loved the Catit Dinners so much that we've ordered the Catit Dinner Bistro Box a couple of times since then. I continue to mix proteins, textures, and brands with my cats, but experienced a new appreciation for the Catit Dinners when Brulee was recently ill with an Upper Respiratory Infection (URI). 

Brulee was rushed to the emergency veterinary hospital last month with an URI. Since she turned 4 years old, she tends to get URIs and becomes very ill, so I get her to the vet as soon as I see the symptoms. She was sent home with antibiotics and anti-nausea meds with the understanding she should be better in about 5-7 days. One important instruction was she needed to eat her food and drink water. I tried to feed her the first day or two and she'd act interested, but then turn away. I even tried her favorite treats, but she turned up her nose and walked away. I knew she had to eat to offset any side effects of the medication and to get well. I had a couple of containers of the Catit Dinners left and decided to see if she'd eat it since she'd turned up her nose at several other wet food varieties in our home I'd already tried to feed her. To my amazement, not only did she immediately begin eating the Catit Dinner, she cleaned her plate! I wrote to Catit to tell them about this situation and how it was the only food she would eat when she couldn't smell well and was ill. They agreed to let me tell you more about the Catit Dinners and the Catit Dinner Bistro Box as part of our 10th Blogoversary celebration this month.

Taurine is also added to help your cat maintain normal digestion, heart muscle function, eyesight, and a healthy immune system. Each Catit Dinner is less than $2.00 per container.

  • Salmon & Green Beans
  • Tilapia & Potato
  • Whitefish & Pumpkin
  • Shrimp & Green Beans
  • Crab Flavor & Pumpkin
Truffle and Brulee have tried and eaten both the Chicken Dinners and the Fish Dinners and love it. The dual layer provides both a shredded-chicken or fish and a soft pate with a gravy that satisfied both. In fact, I have to place Brulee's plate away from Truffle and watch to make sure Truffle doesn't finish her food and try to move Brulee aside to finish hers. I haven't had to worry each evening when they are fed the Catit Dinners whether they will eat it or not because they've both cleaned their bowls.

Catit® Dinner Bistro Box

Catit also offers the Catit Dinner Bistro Box. This a subscription box where you receive 30 servings of the Catit Dinners. There are 3 different Bistro Boxes available: Chicken, Fish, and Variety. The Catit Dinner Bistro Box is available for a one-time purchase or as a subscription (save 10%). The Catit Bistro Boxes retail for $54.99 and are available on the Catit website.

I don't usually like to purchase a case of cat food because I do like to purchase a variety of flavors, textures, proteins, and brands to keep them interested in their food. However, the variety of the Bistro Boxes allows the meals to be different enough that purchasing a case is worth it for me. I continue to vary Truffle and Brulee's proteins (lamb, duck, rabbit) in between the Catit Chicken Dinners. I've purchased the Catit Bistro Boxes a couple of times already and it lasts me about 6 weeks. My cats are small Persian Cats and they split a small can between them once a day (they also eat dry kibble) and they will nibble on their dinner for a couple of hours before they clean their bowls. They Catit Bistro Boxes arrive very quickly and are encased in a nice box that is separated into four sections with a lid that closes easily and securely for storage.

Personal Comments

I've reviewed many brands of cat food and there have only been a few that I've purchased again and continued feeding to my cats. I'm extremely impressed with the Catit Dinners and both Truffle and Brulee always clean their bowls when I give it to them. I have purchased the Catit Dinner Bistro Boxes a couple of times already and will continue to do so. I'd love to see Catit work on providing additional proteins in the future. I spend approximately the same amount of money for individual cans of quality wet food from other brands, so the cost isn't a problem for. me. The simple fact that Brulee eagerly ate the Catit Dinner when she was ill with an upper respiratory infection convinced me this was a food that would stay on our shelves to be fed on a regular basis. I encourage you to purchase this food and try it with your cats. You can purchase it by individual containers or the Bistro Box.

  1. Both my cats prefer chunks and gravy - though they'll eat pate once in a blue moon. Ellie's favorite is tuna. Bear's is chicken. I'm trying to get Ellie to eat more wet food (she's a dry food addict) - these might just do the trick!

  2. Our mom says I'm a picky eater, so maybe I'd like this! Paws crossed.

  3. Those do sound mighty yummy and interesting!

  4. My Cat Daisy Mae is a very picky eater and will only eat Chicken Pate`. Food sounds interesting and yummy for my Cat. I would love to try it and see what she thinks
    Thanks for giveaway
    Hope we win

  5. Sounds like they have a lot of flavors to satisfy any cat.

  6. I'm lucky to have two (out of three) cats who're not at all fussy. Our Mickey Mouser is a different story. I would like to try these on him. How fortunate that Brulee loved the Catit dinner.
    Good health to all kitties!

  7. This review has sold me on trying the Catit wet foods. I once was a cat who only ate tuna with gravy. Of course TW fed me other proteins, textures and brands. My tastes have changed to where I now prefer pate and I tend to like beef flavor best. I'd absolutely love to try a Bistro box rather than have TW spend lots of money first. TY for the giveaway.

  8. I don't think Mom has ever bought me Catit foods, but I sure would like to try them. All the flavors sound nom, but I'll betcha Mom wouldn't let me eat the salmon, sweet potato or duck ones (she says I'm allergic to them).
