Shreds Or Chunks What’s Your Pleasure #ChewyInfluencer

Meowllo everypawdy and happy Caturday. Me knows you expected a Straight From Your Kitchen recipe today since me didn’t post one this week, but me has a Chewy review me needs to tell ya’ ‘bout instead. Recently one of me’s furiends made mention of all da reviews/ads goin’ on in da bloggin’ community; so me thought we would explain a bit ‘bout why we do it. Furstly, as you know we don’t have much money and so getting noms, treats, toys or other products really helps us out each month. It also allows us to try some things dat we might not otherwise get to try. And we get to tell you all ‘bout it. More than once mommy has seen somethin’ dat by it’s description sounded like it would be purrfect fur us only to find once she’s bought it, da description wasn’t truthful. Fur instance, pate type foods don’t go over very well in our house, and more often than not descriptions aren’t clear ‘bout what’s actually inside da can. Therefur it’s really helpful when we can actually see da noms in a plate so we can determine ourselves ifin it’s worth spendin’ money on or ifin we would eat it. And sometimes we get to offer give aways so dat at least one of our readers will get da chance to try it too. So we see it as a win win. Now let’s get on with da review.

This month we got to try Wellness Core Hearty Cuts in gravy chicken and turkey canned cat food. See da name of these noms? Hearty cuts in gravy? Well we think you would expect what we did, little chunks of chicken and turkey in a nice gravy. Well let me tell ya’ dat’s not what it is at all. There was some fine print dat mommy couldn’t read dat woulda caused her not to order these in da furst place, cuz they aren’t chunks, they’re shreds. And they’re not even shreds like pulled meat. They be little tube shreds, dat look like meat and other ingredients have been puréed together and then passed through a pasta maker or large hole grater. Da gravy is really thick and a little oily so mommy added a little water to thin it out and make it more appealing fur me.

 Wellness Core Cat Food

Befur we get to da taste test, let’s take a look at da ingredients and claims.

Here’s what’s in it:     Chicken, chicken broth, turkey broth, chicken liver, turkey, dried egg whites, potato starch, carrots, guar gum, natural flavor, cranberries, spinach, sodium phosphate, salt, ground flaxseed, potassium chloride, salmon oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols), canola oil, choline chloride, inulin, dried kelp, yucca schidigera extract, taurine, iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, thiamine mononitrate, vitamin e supplement, manganese proteinate, copper proteinate, niacin supplement, d-calcium pantothenate, sodium selenite, biotin, riboflavin supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, vitamin a supplement, vitamin b12 supplement, folic acid, potassium iodide, vitamin d3 supplement, rosemary extract 

 Wellness Core Cat Food

As you can see, there’s no carageenan. There is some salmon oil but we’re purretty sure dat’s fur da Omega’s. Here’s da Key Benefits listed on da Chewy website:

Key Benefits

  • Chicken and turkey recipe in a hearty gravy
  • Grain-free recipe helps pets avoid common allergens
  • Superfoods like carrots and spinach provide essential nutrients
  • Serve as a balanced meal or mix with dry food
  • No artificial preservatives, colors or flavors
  • No wheat, corn or soy fillers


Alright, let’s get to tastin’. Mommy, bring me a plate of dat Wellness Core Hearty Cuts in gravy and let me try ‘em out. (Dezi looks intently at the plate containing the shredded bits of chicken and turkey and then puts her nose down to smell it) Hmmmmmm smells okay, let me lick a little of dat gravy. Okay, me’s backin’ up now. Mommy, you can share this with Buddy cuz me doesn’t wanna eat it. Yep, dat’s right, me doesn’t like this at all. Mommy even tried cuttin’ da little shreds up and me still wouldn’t eat it. Buddy on da other hand couldn’t eat it up fast enuff. So Buddy gives it 4 paws up. Me hates da addition of da “Super Foods” since they’re not super foods fur us kitties at all, but everypawdy’s doin’ it. So all in all, this is a good quality food. Fur dat reason me gives it a paw up. Mommy said fur da same reasons she would give it a thumb up as well.

  2. I dunno bout that food…cranberries?? Mom started us on Wellness and we’re not sure bout it at all. The pate…..which is great for Kali’s lack of teeth, is ground so fun that when water is added for gravy….the food disappears and turns into gravy. I like some substance on my plate. We had the beef and chicken shreds and loved it the first day. We ate the whole plateful. Mom gave us the same food for breakfast today and we sniffed it and walked away. Mom has left it down all day but we haven’t touched it. Mom doesn’t understand. Do you have any idea why we would not want it the next time she fed it to us?

    • Oh Shoko, mommy had this very purroblem with sis Lxi when she tried to feed Wellness. It’s kinda funny, you either luv or hate it. As ya’ know when it’s left out all day it just spoils and dat’s why ya’ll never went back to it. But mommy found it’s one of those foods dat she could serve at one meal and then not feed fur a couple of days befure she would eat it again. Me didn’t like da Wellness at all and didn’t like it when me reviewed it this month fur Chewy. Da only thing we can suggest is to rotate it with another high quality food ya’ll like. Or add tuna juice ifin ya’ like tuna. A lot of times mommy would sprinkly catnip or some freeze dried chicky breast over da food to entice sis Lexi. Ya might try dat. Let us know.

      Luv ya’



  3. Mes must say…wes reads some reviews and sometimes wes don’t…it depends on what is being reviewed and how wes feels.
    Wes knows that yous don’t minds and wes don’ts minds about them being posted. Peoples should not complain, they can always just not reads them.
    There, mes said what mes thinks.
    Mes does not like pate, or the fake shreds like yous gotted. Mes does not like big hunks in the gravy wither. Mes is furry purrticular these days.
    Thanks for tell us about this food as mes would not like it either and now we know not to try it.
    Thanks yous! And mes sends yous and your Mommy lots of kisses

    • Fank you Nellie. Your opinions are always welcome here as are others. We’s all ’bout da truth. Like you me likes itty bitty bites in gravy and not big hunks. These just wasn’t fur me, but me’s sure some kitties will luv them.

      Luv ya’



  4. I dunno why Wellness has to put veggies in everything. That doesn’t look very appetizing. TW would give it to me a couple of times before she sent it to the shelter. I really liked the solid Gold cos it didn’t have veggies but it’s fish so you couldn’t eat it.

    Happy Belated Birthday to your Mom.
