We're Sweet on Natural Balance - #PetSmart Story


A couple of weeks ago, we told you about PetSmart® carrying Natural Balance® cat food in their stores.  Flat Truffle and Flat Brulee went shopping with Mom Paula to bring us back some of this premium pet food.  We'd never eaten Natural Balance cat food before because the only way we could get it was to order it online, which involved ordering cases of food we may not eat.   We kitties are known for being finicky, so Mom Paula tends to purchase a couple of cans of different flavors, varieties, and brands to make sure we will eat it before ordering online.  We'd seen Natural Balance in the online pet stores, but never had the opportunity to really try it until PetSmart made it available in the store. Brulee was quick to claim the basket of food as her own. She even picked out the first Natural Balance product that she wanted to try by biting into one of the Platefulls' bags.
"I want this one!"

Natural Balance cat food meets a variety of needs for our fur babies.  The food is available in five formulas: Original Ultra®, Wild Pursuit™, L.I.D.®, Weight Management, Pouches, and Stews.  You can choose from a variety of dry and canned foods, stews, and treats.  Since this is our first time eating Natural Balance, we wanted to share some of our favorites.


Natural Balance Platefulls

Natural Balance® Platefulls® is Truffle and Brulee's favorite.  This grain-free food comes in pouches in 8 different flavors to satisfy a variety of taste buds.  Brulee likes this food because it's served in gravy, which makes it easier for her to eat.  Mom Paula likes it because it's grain free and is a complete and balanced nutrition for all breeds of adult cats. The morsels are large enough that both Truffle and Brulee can also pick it up with their Persian mouths.  If it's easy for them to eat, then they'll eat more.

Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets

L.I.D.® is designed to support healthy digestion and to maintain a healthy skin and coat.  This formula is available in dry kibble and canned food.  It's grain-free and is an excellent choice kitties who need a limited number of premium protein and carbohydrate sources.

Natural Balance Delectable Delights Stews

The Delectable Delights™ are hand crafted with a savory flavor to impress a kitty's finicky taste buds.  There are six formulas of the Delectable Delight Stews that provide a complete and balanced nutrition food for healthy adult cats.  Brulee enjoyed this formula because there were smaller pieces in a tasty gravy, which made it easy for her to eat.

Natural Balance Wild Pursuit

Wild Pursuit™ is a grain-free food with elevated levels of protein from multiple high-quality animal sources that mimics food our wild ancestors would instinctively seek.  There are five flavors of canned food and two flavors of dry kibble.  We wanted to try the dry kibble because it includes freeze-dried raw food and we've loved some of our freeze-dried raw treats we've eaten in the past.  As soon as Mom Paula put the dry food in the bowl, Brulee immediately went to the bowl and ate it. Wild Pursuit is designed for all cat breeds, from kittens to adults.
Brulee really liked the Wild Pursuit dry cat formula.

Natural Balance Available in PetSmart

We're lucky to have three PetSmart stores within 15 miles of our house, so we can get there quickly to replenish our Natural Balance cat food.  You can find your local PetSmart by visiting the PetSmart Store Locator.

  4. Excellent post. I found the pieces in the Platefulls to be too big must to TW’s dismay. She so wanted me to eat them since it contains no carrageenen and is cheaper that the Weruva.

  6. We love Natural Balance. We were lucky enough to get to eat it once in a while when mom was fostering. Natural Balance has always been very generous to rescues. Our closest PetSmart is over 30 miles away so we rarely shop there.

  8. I love Natural Balance food for both my dogs and cats. Not a usual shopper of Pet Smart but headed to the local one this weekend to check it out. I may become my new pet food store.

    This was a great review for Natural Balance's food. I'm glad to know they have L.I.D. available.

  17. Next time I get a wild hair and decide to try and switch my kitties away from the low-end wet food they insist upon, I'll give this a whirl! They've rejected everything I've tried previously, to the point of an all out hunger strike. #sigh Kitties!!

  18. I never knew Natural Balance had so many options. We just tried and loved their Platefuls wet food packets. ~RascalandRocco
