  • Can I feed Nutrish wet food for cats to my kitten?
    Yes. Rachael Ray Nutrish® Super Premium food for cats is formulated to meet the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) nutrient profiles for all life stages of a cat. Check the detailed feeding instructions, and don't forget to see your vet regularly.
  • Is it all natural?
    It is all natural with the exception of the added essential vitamins, minerals and taurine, which complete our natural recipes and deliver 100% balanced nutrition for your cat. Like most pet foods, these ingredients are not considered "natural" due to the nature in which they are produced. However, all ingredients, of course, exceed our high quality standards.
  • Are any of the ingredients from China?
    No ingredients are sourced from China.
  • Why is it made in Thailand?
    It is made in Thailand because we wanted the freshest source of seafood. The majority of seafood is sourced from Asia. This allows us to get fresh seafood into our manufacturing facilities and put into our recipes – many human seafood products take a similar approach to sourcing. Our facility in Thailand is state of the art modern pet food manufacturing facility. We use human grade ingredients in a sterile environment. And our facility exceeds all FDA regulations for pet food safety.
  • Why does it contain added vitamin K?
    Vitamin K is a necessary nutrient for your cat's complete and balanced nutrition. As seafood does not naturally contain the necessary amount of vitamin K your cat needs, we add it separately.
  • Why is there a yellow coloration to the sauce?
    The yellow color comes from palm oil and paprika. Both palm oil, a natural vegetable oil, and paprika are used for color and flavor. The yellow color is completely natural and safe. Because Nutrish® Wet Cat Foods do not contain any artificial colors or preservatives, a natural separation of ingredients may occur. As a comparison example, think about how the oils separate in natural peanut butter spreads that you may enjoy. For the Nutrish® Cat Foods, simply shake the cup of food, watch the palm oil mix back into the savory sauce, watch your cat enjoy the tasty recipe, and rest assured that she's eating a high-quality, safe food.
  • What is cellulose, why is it in there?
    Cellulose is an all natural dietary fiber source. It is used to increase the fiber levels in our wet cat food to help with hairball control and to help reduce litterbox odor.
  • Why is there so much liquid in the cup?
    Cats crave moisture, the moisture level in our wet cat food was determined to be the optimal level for cat acceptance and enjoyment through a variety of feeding studies.
  • What is Pawttenesca?
    Pawttenesca is a play on puttanesca, which is a Southern Italian pasta sauce.
  • Why are some of the fish pieces dark in Nutrish Wet Cat Foods?
    Our recipes contain natural fish without the addition of any artificial colors or preservatives. This fish is rich in nutrients and essential fat, which help to deliver powerful health benefits to your cat. These natural fish pieces are sometimes dark, but they are both safe and delicious for your cat.
