Food tests and analysis

I decided to buy and try all the Jane Cat’s taste options:

  • Beef
  • Chicken and salmon
  • Veal and turkey
  • Beef and chicken

Price (rounded): 5 PLN for 200 g cans, 8 PLN for 400 g cans

The manufacturer states that the Jane Cat cat food is a complete food. I will check if it really can be the complete basis of a daily and balanced diet.

First impression

Karma to dość wilgotne i mocno zmielone mięsko, ale da się w nim Food is quite moist and strongly ground meat, but you can notice unground meat pieces. In each flavor variant is full of jelly formed from broth, which is quite a lot.

In my opinion

The first thing that struck me was the content of meat and offal in the composition, and precisely the lack of specification what part of the content is muscle meat and which offal. In addition, each counterfeit is listed in the composition, which may suggest that the percentage of offal is greater than that of meat. Offal is an important part of a cat’s diet, but too much offal may result in diarrhea in some cats.

Food has a balanced analytical composition – the optimal level of fats, carbohydrates and proteins, as well as the appropriate content of taurine. The ratio of calcium to phosphorus is slightly overestimated by too much calcium, but I am very happy that the manufacturer gave the content of calcium and phosphorus, because not on every feed we can find such information. The composition also has salmon oil, which is a source of Omega 3 and Omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids necessary in the cat’s diet.

The food does not contain cereals, but two flavors has completely unnecessary vegetables and fruits – carrots in the feed Beef and bananas in the stall Chicken and salmon.

Benefits

  • without cereals, dyes and preservatives,
  • the right amount of taurine,
  • contains salmon oil,
  • optimal levels of carbohydrates, fats and proteins,
  • available in large cans,
  • there are taste options not based on chicken.

Disadvantages

  • no specification of the percentage of meat and separate offal,
  • two flavors contain unnecessary additives in the form of vegetables and fruits,
  • only one mono-protein option

I think Jane Cat’s feed is quite good for analytical composition. However, I do not think that it can be a complete basis for a daily and balanced diet – for this it will work perfectly as a complementary food.

In my cats eyes

To my surprise, Apollo was more likely to graze Veal and turkey than Beef. He did not indulge in any taste and it was obvious that the smell of food intrigued him.
