How can we help?
The best way to feed your cat is with a natural diet that their bodies were designed for. Like the big wild cats, your furry friend is also a carnivore. They need meat from protein (not cereals and grains) and essential vitamins from vegetables and fruits to stay happy and healthy. That’s why Applaws recipes have been carefully crafted with natural ingredients. We only use the finest cuts of meat or fish in our wet food range and vitamins and minerals that exist naturally. Our dry food contains extremely high levels of meat and we have grain-free recipes too
even cause allergies, itching and digestive issues. While cats are able to tolerate some level of grain, they are carnivores and their bodies are at their healthiest when they get their protein from meat and not cereals. The main source of protein in Applaws cat food is quality meat, like chicken breast or tuna. We make sure our recipes replicate your cat’s natural diet, as closely as possible, so you can serve happiness in every bowl.

We recommend serving your kitten complete dry food with a complementary wet food. They may like to have up to eight smaller meals a day – some of these could be in the middle of the night. We recommend a bowl of Applaws complete dry food be left out 24 hours a day. You can then top it up with Applaws wet cat food – don’t forget to always leave a bowl of fresh water out. If your kitten has special dietary requirements, or you are unsure about any aspect of feeding your kitten, speak to your Vet to put your mind at rest.

There are two types of Carrageenan used in pet food: Degraded Carrageenan which is cheap and banned in human food and Natural Carrageenan – this one is used in human food. Although they share the same name, they are very different. We believe natural is always best.
Complementary pet foods are not designed to be the only source of food for your pet. They are a great way to add variety, flavour and essential vitamins to their diet but should be served with some complete dry food.
At Applaws, our natural, wet complementary recipes contain real meat and fish. These prime cuts provide your pet with naturally high levels of vitamins, taurine and arginine and they are a great way to make dry meals more interesting.

The US Food and Drug Administration have approved irradiation as a (allegedly) safe and effective means of processing dog and cat food products. We are aware that it is also used to make ‘safe’ contaminated packaging and that there is no legal duty to inform the public if any packaging has been treated in this way – just so you know too.
Anti-freeze or Propylene glycol is used by some manufactures to preserve their pet food – check to see if it is hidden in the ingredient list on the pack the under the terms “Contains EEC Permitted antioxidant, colourants or preservatives”. If you see this, ask the manufacturer what preservative they are actually using. Propylene glycol is considered “safe” by some manufactures if used in small quantities. It is not only a very powerful chemical preservative but it has a strong artificial sweet taste that some pets find addictive.

In many other cat food brands the level of natural taurine can be very low which is why synthetic taurine is added to the food to meet the minimum standard required.
