give us the foods [sponsored]

We met the representative of Weruva at Blog Paws this spring. We have sampled some of their other canned and pouched foods and were interested to find out that they had a new product coming out that was a pate in pouches. We signed up to try some out and recently got a box in the mail. We would show you the whole thing but it was raining like mad when it was delivered and the box did not make it...thankfully the pouches survived!!

The box had pouches along with information and....a couple of toys!! Goldfish and Annatto have been having fun with the toys.

The pouches we have tried before weren't our favorite delivery system. The pouches have an indent (for lack of a better term) on the bottom so they can stand up. The problem is that chunks of food get stuck in those and it can be a pain to get them out.

That said, the pate really does slide right out. Mom says she wishes they would just make a flat pouch with no indent on the bottom, but at least with the pate variety everything comes out for easy serving.

They have enjoyed the food as well. We do know that some cat owners have concerns about fish. That said, all but 2 varieties have fish in them. Annatto and Goldfish loved the food and ate almost all of the 2.8 ounce pouch. There was much banging from the other side of the door hoping for leftovers (sorry guys).

clean up crew - Soda was happy to help out

We like the idea of pouches as they certainly take up less space than cans. And this new version with the pate comes right out and is easy to use. Plus...the cats and kittens loved it. We are going to add these to the rotation of food for the fosters.

Thanks Weruva for letting us test out the new Slide N' Serve Pate formulas.

This is what Weruva has to say:

Paté Done Right

What does it mean to make a paté the Weruva way?
  • What you see is what you get - Because we purée simple and wholesome ingredients, you literally see the difference in each recipe!
  • Puréed foods - Just like using your kitchen mixer at home, we purée real ingredients to purrrfection, making sure those quality proteins taste delicious. 
  • No Bad Stuff - Free of BPA, Grain, Gluten, Carrageenan, Artificial Flavors or Colors, and MSG.
  • Protein Options - Fish free, chicken free, or mixed protein recipes!
  • Paté in a pouch - Slide N' Serve Patés are the first paté in a pouch in the industry. We’re making it easier to feed without the mess.
**disclosure: we got the food for review at no charge. This did not affect our opinions or this review. All opinions expressed here are our own.


  1. That sure sounds like great food. We will have to order some of that. Thanks for the great review.

  2. I agree whole-heartedly about the pouches! Everyone usually loves the food but the pouches are such a pain. I'll have to watch for the pate but things often take a while to get to Canada. :-(

  3. I have my concerns about those pouches; can they be recycled, like metal cans can?

  4. That looks mighty yummy to me!
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  5. Looks like it was a hit. And sending toys, too? Can't beat that!

  6. This sounds promising! My human likes pouch food for when we travel - it's lighter weight and easier to pack. I'll have to check out the non-fish flavors.

  7. Great review ! That sounds yummy ! Purrs

  8. We got a box of these pouches the other day too...and so far they’re getting a good review from us.

  9. Those sound pretty tasty! And you got toys? SCORE!

  10. It looks like great food but our cats are not found of pate.

    1. I believe this is a wetter type of Pate, so your cats *might* like it.

  11. I would love to find a decent food that all of mine like to eat. It's a constant struggle to get them to eat enough soft-food - except for Parker, who will eat anything.

  12. What a great opportunity. one of these days we'll find a perfect food :)


We love to hear from you.....
