It’s empty in here!
My 4 and half months old kitten is on Royal Canin mother and baby dry+kitten wet food. After lots research, I decided to try Applaws for him. I ordered the mixed pack kitten canned food+ 400g Kitten Dry food to give it a try. Mixing a little bit of new food with his old dry and wet food. I expected he would eat both new and old food. However, He ate Applaws canned food straight away and left old wet food behind. Then went to his dry food bowl and picked Applaws kibble to eat only.🤣🤣🤣
my underweight failure to thrive kitten turned out to have a food allergy, probably lactose intolerance. After trying a variety of foods(most of which made him sick) we came across applaws and never looked back. He particularly likes the ocean fish and has one 70g tin a day to supplement his hills science plan biscuits. five years later, and hes loving it as much as ever. its worth paying the price to watch him lap it up and love it. the two dogs try there best to lick his whiskers afterwards.
My girlfriend and I have a moggy and a ragdoll. We didn't want to feed them on any cheap food as it is bad for them. We researched for weeks and found this incredible brand. Our kitty's love this food!! Everytime we even touch the food bowls or open the food chest they come running, even if it's not feeding time. The dry food is the same. They just love it. I highly recommend applaws kitten food for all owners.
The Applaws SENIOR canned cat food IS COMPLETE food but the other canned food from this range is not (the "Natural cat food" ones). I asked the Applaws company. My cat likes all favours. He doesn't leave any on the plate what is very unusual. He's always had the best available food but this is special. I hope there is not some dodgy ingredient in there what makes it so irresistible. We rely on the honesty of the manufacturers.
This is the only senior cat food my seventeen year old cat will eat. He's on thyroid medication and his kidneys are on the borderline of normal so I wanted a senior food for him. He loves this/
Our kitten was on Whiskas when we first got him but he never seemed that interested and would slowly pick at his food. After a couple of weeks we moved him onto Applaws wet and dry, and he now empties his bowl as soon as it's filled. He seems to be much more energetic now and can't wait for meal times. His favourites are the tuna and sardine flavours. Highly recommended.
I have two BSH sisters of 6 months old, one loves the tuna and the other loves both the tuna and the chicken, sadly the sardines gets ignored so I no longer order those. Have to give my tins away. Great food for growing kitties!
My 18 year old cat who is very fussy and is often sick loves the tuna with salmon in jelly but will not eat the chicken in jelly. She will eat some of the ordinary Applaws chicken ones though.
My very fussy 13 year old cat loves this, never anything left in the bowl. Considering he seemed to hate any food in jelly, it seems to be a totally different kind of jelly and compared to some other brands - is excellent stuff!
Cats seemed to like it, and it's full of real meat pieces. I realised after ordering it's not a complete food. I do think this should be made more obvious in the title of products on this site, for those who might not check the label, and end up with a very poorly kitty.
My cat is about 18 and has always been prone to being sick. I am not saying this food has stopped her but at least she eats all of it and not left lumps and just licked the gravy as with cheap range foods.
My 13 year old cat has kidney problems and was having a tough time eating, he only has water and starved himself so thin that he is loosing weight to skin and bones. I was so happy to read the reviews and prompted me to try this product, as soon as I recd it today he ate a 1/4 from the tin, which was a real relief and blessing to see him atleast put something in his tummy. Oh goodness now I can at least be assured that my baby is going to live longer and have a better health in long run. Thanks
Applaws is a fantastic complimentary cat food that my kitten and adult cat both love, but I can't give it five stars due to the failure to clarify that this is not a complete food and must only be supplementary. It concerns me that some might not be aware of this and feed their cats Applaws exclusively. As it doesn't contain taurine this could put them at risk of severe health problems and I feel that this information should be provided to ensure owners can give their pets a balanced diet.
Great, high quality food, and our 2 Maine Coon kittens love it, but I will say that its just a supplement to thier main diet, its gone in 60 seconds! We have been buying the mixed pack , but the Sardine is thier least favourite and is very sticky and cloying, so we are sticking with the Tuna and Chicken from now.
We've bought our kitten a mix of foods to give him some variety, and also because we can't afford to feed him this three or four times a day. That said, he loves this one the most - he can smell you opening the tin from the other side of the house and always purrs when you put it down in front of him. As I say, not cheap, but as a treat it's thoroughly recommended!
My cat will be 18 years in March and has hyperthyroidism and kidney disease. I have to mix some medication with her food and give her applaws tuna fillet which she really likes. I bought senior tuna and salmon knowing that she can be very fussy but to my delight she wolved it down immediately! I know it's not complete but at least she eats it and doesn't mind medication in it.
I have bought this food for awhile for my cats, it's expensive but I always buy in bulk to cut cost. The last batch of 48 cans or more that I bought. My husband and I both noticed the amount of meat packed in to the cans has decreased and there seems to be more juice and rice. I must say I am highly disappointed as the cost has not changed. My cats don't seem to I've the food as much either. I am now looking at changing their food because of this.
My cat's diet was been changed to nothing but Applaws, because the benefits of solely eating this range, outweighs the increase in price. However, I have noticed there is a distinct change in the Sardine & Mackerel, whereby, the chunks of fish have been replaced with a mushy consistency & it states 5% rice, in the ingredients, although, that is an understatement, because there is, now, a large amount of soaked rice, which I assume has been added, in order, to pad out the meal & in turn reduces the need for whole pieces of fish, which obviously keeps the costs down, at the manufacturing stage, however, the price I pay for the food hasn't decreased. Why do companies change a popular food item, at the risk of losing business? Yes, Applaws is one of the most expensive pet food, but, buying it in large quantities is actually economical, in addition to the fact that, up until these alterations, my cat would eat every single morsel, which meant I wasn't throwing away unwanted/leftover food. Now, I am inundated with tins of food that my cat refuses to eat & Applaws has an extremely disappointed & frustrated customer.
my ragdoll kitten loves it. its good portion for him at the moment as he is 3 months old. good guality as otherwise Gizmo would not eat it:)
While it might not be the cheapest, my kitten absolutely LOVES the kitten applaws tins! Each serving that I have given has been finished off in no time at all with no waste, as even the bowl gets properly cleaned off by the kitten trying not to miss any of the food! Really like that Zooplus sell the variety packs. Highly recommend!
My cats absolutely love these products. They mostly have chicken and pumpkin to help their digestion but they love the tuna flavours too and go crazy for the tuna loin treat. You can see the difference between this and other cat foods. It gives all three cats a beautiful shiny coat. I can't say how pleased I am with Applaws. Such great value too.
Ocean fish was the favourite until sardine and mackerel was tried. My fussy cats not keen on the other flavours. He loves this wet food so much it is a pleasure sitting watching him eat it. Its worth every penny. He nibbles on hills biscuits aswell. He has one tin of applause each day. The dogs get all excited when he gets it and wait patiently incase they can lick any off his whiskers afterwards. But hes usually licked it all off before them.
One of my kittens was ill recently and had to be given antibiotics which he would not take voluntary. We bought a few tins of this a recommended by our vet to help mask the pills and he was so busy wolfing it down he didn't notice the medication at all. Absolutely loves it. One stay knocked off because of price - we're now having to transition him back to something more affordable for the long term!
My Beldaran will eat nothing but fish based wet food currently, and loves all but the tuna and cheese. She's such a fussy kitty that she'll not eat any flakes of tuna unless it's under an inch in size. I'm glad to say that the flakes in each tin are almost perfect with barely a to big a chunk for me to break up. Highly recommend, such good quality and no added nasties.
we literally sit and watch out cat devouring his daily tin. It is well worth the money seeing how much he enjoys it. He has hills science plan dried food for his second meal. His current favourite is the sardine and mackerel. Its lovely and juicy! The dogs try to lick any excess off his whiskers afterwards, but he rarely leaves much he washes them quickly to get every bit.
Our two kittens had this for their first month here and it was gone as it hit their bowls, they have a noticeable improvement in their coats and is great alongside the dried food. It is more a pate type consistency and they have seemed to outgrow it as they began teething preferring the adult chicken version.
Not too sure whether it is the food, but the little one eats everything I offer him - including this food, however, cannot keep it in his stomach so I have stopped feeding it. Tried four times, a shame.
I bought the salmon 12+ for my cat and she loves it; she cannot seem to get enough of it and cleans her bowl every time she has it, something that does not happen with everything I give her.
Our 5 year old cat recently had pancreatitis and the vet stated no more rich food (in gravy or jelly), but a bland diet - cooked chicken or white fish. Well the cat soon got fed up with this and then I came across Applaws. Wow he just lapped it up and as it is 100% natural, it is most suited to his diet. What a great product.
I feed my cats a mixture of natural, real meat foods (such as Applaws) alongside some complete dry food (which I put in the bowl at the same time). Some of the real meat foods are complementary and not complete, so remember to read the labels and make sure you always add some that is marked as 'complete'. I believe in feeding foods that are not full of highly processed meat by-products and I must say that my cats are in excellent condition! They are of a healthy weight and their skin and fur is excellent (no dandruff). If I were to make one criticism about this product is that it isn't organic, so for non-organic food it's quite expensive. But, saying that, I feel it's one of the best foods on the market.
My British Shorthair keeps a good weight and despite a 'Heart Murmer' diagnosed as a kitten, he is very lively and playful. Loves this food and nothing else I have tried.
My kitten loves the shredded chicken fillet, he gets it mixed with kibble. Trots then gallops to his bowl when he sees the can. Very good for a supplementary food. However, there are better value wet food on Zooplus like Cosma (shreds), Feline Porta 21 (shreds) and Alma Nature (pate).
I give this food to my kitten in conjunction with the Applaws dry kitten food. She loves the taste and wolfs it down but this is more of a treat as it is not nutritionally complete and will need to be supplemented with another food. It's really handy to ensure your kitten is getting moisture as dry food on it's own is quite bad for them. I give her one tin (70g) split up throughout the day. 3 Stars because my kitten loves it. 2 knocked off due to not mentioning that it is a treat food on the packaging.
Applaws is a nice treat that my Norwegian forest cat and Abyssinian really enjoy but both the pouches and tins are not complete . If you look on the back of the tins you will see that the ingredients are pure free range meat with broth and no added vitimans or taurine which is what makes it complementary. If you wanted your cats meals to be complete you could of course feed dry food alongside the applaws.
My two kittens were introduced to applaws and they adore it. Never seen such quick eating in all my life. One favours the chicken and one favours the tuna, which sadly I can't get on zooplus for the kitten range. Little disappointed it's not a complete food but I supplement with Lilys Kitchen and Porta 21. All in all brilliant quality food for two very happy kittens. Please please get the kitten tuna tins in :)
Applaws is the only wet food our cats will consistently eat. We have tried other brands just for variety and the cats will only eat them for a week or two so we always end up back on Applaws. In the 4 years since we got our cats I have never had a single tin of Applaws that didn't seem top quality, it is always 100%. We always buy the 24-tin saver packs because they are the best value. The only slight downside to Applaws wet food is that it isn't a 'complete' food so we have to make sure the cats also eat complete dry food too, which can occasionally be difficult. Overall I would recommend Applaws wet food to everyone simply because the cats do love it. A+++
I dunno about kittens, but my hogs LOVE this. My pygmy hedgehogs are a fussy bunch and they all like different things, but they all licked the bowl clean when I offered them some of this. I even managed to trick them into eating some veg that I mixed through it. 1st time all the bowls have been empty in the morning :o). V pleased I bought the 24 pack!
My cat has been very poorly with hyperthyroid and I looked for a better food after this and finding a piece of metal in a sachet of Whiskers food. She has had radioiodine treatment but has positively thrived on both the treatment and the good food. She looks so healthy after 3 weeks of it, her coat is gleaming and put on much needed weight & muscle. At first I only found the pouches but then discovered they were only complimentary food but when I visited pets at home I found senior complete tins and complete dry food. All my cats LOVE this food and I would highly recommend it.
My 12 week old kitten who is usually a bit cautious of new foods went nuts for this! Ate half a tin straight away. If only it came in bigger tins!
My 2 Siamese always eat every bit of this food with gusto-it is never ever wasted !
Our two ragdolls love this as a treat but after reading a few comments above thought I'd better mention this is not a complete food for cats. For excellent quality wet grain free food for cats check out Grau Grain Free, Bozita or have a look at Lily's Kitchen organic
this is the only 'cat food' our 1 yr old kitten will eat. He has expensive tastes but buying in bulk from zooplus has saved us money. Some tins have more brine than others. Well worth tryiog if like us you have extremely fussy feline friend.
This food looks great and by the way our 4 British Shorthairs eat it, it tastes as good as it looks. We only feed cour cats the best and so it must be good.
Yes, this is a natural product with natural ingredients but unfortunately it is not a complete meal. But my cats enjoy these tins alot and because they are not complete meals I just give them as treats.
My kitten did like this food, however it doesn't look anything like the picture suggests! It looked and smelt more like tuna fish than chicken! The serving size is quite good for kittens though.
My 9 months old russian blue cats love this food. Chicken breast applaws is the only wet food they'd eat - and I did try a few major brands and kitten range applaws also. They generally have a sensitive tummy but having them on applaws seem to have fixed the problem - they feel much better now and purr every time I open the tin, they simply can't get enough of applaws!
My kitten is a fussy eater. He wasn't when we first got him but since he spotted our adult cat wolfing down delicious Applaws, he wanted some to himself. I was so pleased Applaws do a kitten food! Our kitten licks the bowl so clean and is always looking for more. I now give him this for his 2 main meals and then another cat food, whiskas, for his in between smaller meals. He always picks at whiskas but this goes down a treat! Even our adult cat tried to get in about it. Highly recommended for cats who have expensive taste!
This product has species appropriate, high quality ingredients for a cat, containing 53% chicken meat (not 'derivatives'), 5% eggs, 39.4% water, 1.6% oil. It has 1% rice, which I'm in 2 minds about as I prefer cat foods to be cereal free but rice is hypoallergenic. The high moisture content will support the urinary health of male kittens and has fish liver in to support brain health. I was satisfied that this was a quality product supportive of excellent nutrition. In addition my kitten really loved, and even my old cat, who is the fussiest eater in the world, wolfed a tin of this down with great enjoyment. So it is tasty and it is good for your kitten. A tin a day plus available the nutritionally excellent applause kitten kibble is how I would offer it and a constant supply of dechlorinated water as well. Cats hate tap water and many would rather be thirsty than drink it! I wish though that zooplus sold JWB wet food, because its the best quality, tastiest wet food for cats and kittens that I know of.
2 of my cats have sensitive digestion. One is frequently sick and the other always has diarroah. My vet recommended switching from Felix to a premium / organic brand. Since trying this, both their conditions are much improved and both cats adore it. My 3rd fussy tabby cat who previously hated wet food and would only eat dried, also loves it. I'm disappointed to read the two reviews which say it isn't a complete food, but they fail to detail what vitamins it misses so perhaps an update would be more informative to anyone concerned by those reviews. I tend to try a range or organic foods for my cats to give them a broader range diet anyway as us humans don't like to eat the same thing day in day out so why do we assume they do? And for me, the proof this is a good food is in the improved health of 2 of my cats. If they're happy, I'm happy.
When I opened the tin it was very different than other Applaws I have bought, which looked like shredded chicken. This was pinker and mushier in comparison. Plus the ingredients are different that the product on the Applaws website. I was confused so contacted Applaws (MPM Products) and they said that this is not the complete food, this is one made for the European market which is a complementary food, there to be mixed with other foods. It is genuine, but not the same as the UK product which is a complete food. Nonetheless, my kitten loves it!!
As has been suggested under feeding recommendations, I got really worried that my kittens who refuse to eat any dry complete food will not get enough nutrition they need! So I emailed Applaws and the reply I have received was that this is the only wet food they make which is 'complete'. We are still trying to give them other products but this is the only one that they love so much, they clean the plate and purr every time they get it!
it sounds like a great cat food, but it's not a complete food, so why buy this if you have to add to it May as well buy something that has all the ingredients cats need. Zooplus, please highlight the fact that it is a complimentary food!
Well I wouldn't say my 17 week old kitten is fussy, but lets say she knows what she likes. I gave her some of this food and left her for a couple of minutes and came back to find the dish empty, and a very full up, contended kitten laying on the sofa washing.I ahve never known her eat so much so quickly. Its super and I will be buying it again.
My 5month old kitten really loves Applaws and I give her a tin once or twice a week as a treat. I think the ingredients and the quality of this food are great, however, it is definately NOT a complete food! On the applaws tin it says clearly that it is a 'completely natural complementary kitten food'. The 'completely' might be a bit misleading I guess! Also I looked at the Applaws website and the Nutritional Analysis of their wet food: it contains for example only 4mg of Taurine (A cat needs a minimum of 250mg per day). Also the phosphorus/calcium relation is not balanced! Therefore I believe it's not a good idea to feed a cat only Applaws wet food and it should really be combined with a wet (or dry) complete food. However, as said - it is a great treat!!!
My 5 month old male Ragdoll has been enjoying this for months now! Lip smackingly yummy - only the can is noticeably small especially as male Ragdolls grow quite big. It’s the only time he actually still seems hungry and meews for more food.
I am in the process of weaning four 5-week old kittens and they are doing really well on Applaws Kitten! Initially, I put a little bit on the tip of my finger and eased it into their mouths, but by the end of the first day, they were eating it out of the bowl. The only problem is keeping the mother from stealing it!
This is the best wet food I've found for my 4mth old. She loves it and the quality is absolutely top-notch. I don't think there's anything better on the market. I only wish they'd do a few more flavours for kittens. The website here suggests it isn't complete, but according to the manufacturer the formula was changed since it was first introduced and it now IS complete.
I agree this does seem to be a great cat food with a high protein content and my diabetic cat loves it, however I called the uk supplier and asked if it was a complete food. The answer was no!! They recommend you add a vitamin supplement to the food. The dried food is a complete diet but the wet food isn't.
This is ideal for the owner who has the picky cat amongst us. My Siamese had to change his diet from dry food to wet last year. We tried him on many different types, and finally found Applaws. The succulent pieces of meat or fish within the tin are readily eaten and the dish licked clean. The ammount in each tin is adequate for one meal per cat too. As unlike other cat food the lack of water in the tin is a pleasant surprise. The tins themselves are very easy to open as they have their own ring pull, so there is no need to look for a tin opener. All in all a very pleasing experience for both owner and cat!
My 7 month old ragdoll male didn't like this at all. Neither did our older cats, maine coon and two mixed one. Maybe because this foofd wasn't in chunks. They left all food on the plate each one of them.
My kitten absolutely loved this for a couple of days. Will just about eat now at a push (if warmed). A very fussy eater. Nothing beats prawns! Have to say that it looks and smells way more appetising than other processed uniform chunks of kitten food, I just wish Pud would eat it.
That's my cats opinion! They go crazy for this. Only tried the plain chicken so far as one of my cats has a dodgy tummy but they go wild when I open the tin and lick the plate clean. At last a good wholesome cat food that they love. Not a complete food so used as a treat only but I recommend it highly!
My 6 month old kitten loves this food and it was gone within seconds. The can is small though and it recommends 2 per day for my cat but I don't think that would be enogh to keep her satisfied.
