A Little Taste of Hawaii #ChewyInfluencer

Truffle eating the Tiki Cat® Aloha Friends
Disclosure:  As members of the Chewy.com Blogger Outreach Program, we received a case of Tiki Cat® Brand Cat Food Aloha Friends for free in exchange for our fair and honest review.  Chewy.com is not responsible for the contents of this post.  Sweet Purrfections only shares products and information we feel will be of interest to our readers.

Mom Paula has always dreamed of going to Hawaii.  Everyone in her family has gone except her and she says it is on her bucket list once she retires.  We don't know what Hawaii is, but we were happy to receive a case of Tiki Cat® Brand Cat Food Aloha Friends to try this past month from Chewy.com.  We've had Tiki Cat products in the past and always liked them.  The first ingredient in the new Aloha Friends is fresh tuna.

The Tiki Cat Aloha Friends is available in five different flavors combined with fresh tuna.
  • Tuna with Shrimp & Pumpkin
  • Tuna with Calamari & Pumpkin
  • Tuna with Ocean Whitefish & Pumpkin
  • Tuna with Pumpkin
  • Tuna with Tilapia & Pumpkin


We don't eat tuna too often, but Mom Paula does give it to us once about every two weeks. We received the Tuna with Shrimp & Pumpkin in the pouch to sample this time. It will be obvious to your humans (and to us kitties) that tuna is in this food because the aroma of tuna permeates the room as soon as the pouch is opened.  Mom Paula likes that this food has pumpkin in all of the flavors because it's a gentle source of fiber that aids in digestion. The tuna is wild-caught, dolphin-safe that's been mercury tested for safety.  This food has no grains, gluten, or GMOs and is handpacked in human-grade facilities.
Truffle thinks the food tastes delicious

We wish we could show you photos of Brulee eating this food because she had "tuna stain" all over her cute little white mouth when she first began eating it.  She chose to eat her food under the kitchen chair behind one of Mom Paula's sweaters during the photo shoot.  Even though Brulee had "tuna face" she didn't eat too much of this food (everyone knows she is a little finicky).  Truffle ate about half of the food and then walked away.  We don't know if it was because of the shrimp or the pumpkin in this particular variety, but we didn't clean our plates. We're definitely going to give it another try.  Both of us have begun eating a little bit, walking away, and then coming back for more.  Mom Paula plans on donating any remaining pouches to a local shelter or to her nephews who have cats.
  


The Tiki Cat Aloha Friends come in pouches (case of 12) or cans (case of 12).  Chewy.com also offers a variety pack so you can try the different flavors.  They are both currently priced at $10.16 per case.  Chewy.com also offers 20% discount if you set up your first Autoship.  If you combine this with other cat supplies that total $49+, Chewy.com offers free 1-2 day shipping.  The customer service is excellent and we always enjoy the box!

  1. That's too bad you two weren't that enthused about the food.

  2. We're surprised you weren't more enthusiastic about that. We are crazy for tuna but only Pierre gets it, and that is when he won't eat anything else.

  10. We usually like Tiki Cat though we don't get it very much because it always is so much fish. Sorry this one didn't suit your fancy.

  11. Our pups have always liked Tiki, but yup - they like certain varieties more than others! We hope your momma gets to Hawaii soon - she needs to soak it all in!

  12. Oooh, one day your mommy might take you with her to Hawaii! I haven't been there either! I've read so many nice things about Chewy, but you can't get them in Belgium!!

  13. It's all about flavor and what they like! I hope your Mom makes it to Hawaii!

  14. I just bought this for a cat I'm sitting. The person who left her with me left ... well, some 'cheaper' wet food for her. Not only was it not up to my standards, it made her poop stink. Switched her to this (in addition to dry) and problem solved.

  19. I do love Hawaii and would really like to go back in the winter. I don't love the smell of tuna but I do love tuna and mayonnaise sandwiches for lunch weirdly- Kilo had some tuna leftover with his kibble tonight as he loves it. I think he'd actually enjoy that food LOL.

  20. I really appreciate the honest review. Thank you for that! We haven't tried Tiki pet foods yet so we will have to give the canine versions a try. I would have loved to see a picture of your "tuna face" ;-)

  21. Mmmm... Tuna, Mmmm.... Pumpkin! Mom almost got this for us to try from Chewy this month but she went with another sample instead. We're pretty picky eaters too (well, two of us are), so we may have been grazing like you too. Head bunts to you! <3

  22. Great review and am sorry they were not happy with the food

  23. Sometimes a person or a pet needs to try a new food a few times before they can appreciate it. However, I think it is great if you donate the food to cats who will enjoy it more.

  24. This looks so yummy! Callie the Cat has never had wet food before but maybe we should let her try some! :)

  25. We love pumpkin in this house and this sounds like something our Binx would really like. Thanks for the great review!

  26. My dogs love tuna & pumpkin too! We didn't know cats like pumpkin as well. So sweet of you to donate some of the food to a shelter!
    Love & biscuits,
    Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

  27. We love pumpkin here and it keeps our hairballs in check. Sorry you weren't so keen on the food, but it's lady-like not to finish everything on your plate I hear.
