Mary had a little lamb and boy was it tasty

Hi guys and gals, I’m Baby. I am one of Lily’s brofurs. Every once in a while Lily lets us pick out something to test out. She was feeling nice this month and let us pick out something to review. Bater aka icky kitty did not want to participate. He is more of a dry food kind of guy.  So just my brofur Sam and I are the taste testers this month.

We knew that Lily liked some treats from a company called Ziwi Peak. They are from New Zealand. Mom is pretty picky and only likes to buy treats and food made in the US, but she makes an exception for Ziwi Peak because of the high quality food and treats it provides for us kitties and pups.


We were pretty excited when mom popped open the can, she could barely snap a picture or two before we were trying to dig right in.



The recipe we tried was Lamb. When you look at the back of the can the first five ingredients are lamb, lamb broth, lamb liver, lamb lung,  and lamb kidney. That is a whole lot of lamb. Then after some chick peas, they have lamb tripe and lamb heart. You  practically get a whole lamb in one can. Well not really, I am pretty sure lambs are bigger than one of these cans. You also have some New Zealand Green Mussel, lamb bone, and dried kelp. When you really look at it, the can of food contains lamb, chick peas, mussel, and kelp. They do add some vitamins and minerals to make sure we get everything us mini lions need.

We devoured the can. Pretty sure it was a record of how fast we ate the food. We really liked this food. We are not huge fans of pate, but we had zero problems devouring this. Our usual food has 5.5 oz of food in each can, this can contains 6.5 oz. The extra ounce was nothing for us. We did not even bat a whisker at the extra amount. In fact we were pretty happy about it.


Isn’t that a glorious plate? So much yummy goodness. That my furry pals is 93% meat, organs, and  NZ green mussels. This recipe is designed to mirror the whole prey nutrient dense diet using those very ingredients. We are tiny predators and we want to eat like our mighty feline relatives.

Ziwi Peak never includes grains, rice, corn, soy, potatoes, wheat, fillers, sugars, glycerin’s, rendered meals, preservatives, TSPP, BPA, guar gum, agar agar or carrageenan.  Not using any of those products helps keep the formula as natural as possible.

Their lamb is 100% single-sourced lamb which is  free-range and grass-fed on ethical and sustainable New Zealand farms; free of antibiotics, growth promotants and added hormones.

We know that is a lot of big  and sometimes confusing words, but what they are trying to say is that they want to make sure that they are providing the best possible food for us kitties by using only the best proteins and ingredients. Which is a very good thing. Quality food makes for a very happy and healthy kitty.

Sam and I give this food four paws up. We loved this food, we are hoping that mom gets more of it. Mom says she will, but it will just be in rotation and will not take place of our usual food. Sometimes we are being jerk faces and refuse to eat our regular food, so mom has cans of extra special food set aside that she knows we will eat. We definitely prefer this food to our normal food. It is very tasty and who knew that lamb could be so yummy? We usually eat just turkey or chicken. It is nice to have another protein for our supper time.

Ziwi Peak also offers recipes using beef, mackerel, venison, and rabbit. I think they should come out with a variety pack, so we could try them all!

If you are looking for a high protein food, that contains zero fillers, grains, or preservatives, then check out Ziwi Peak right meow. We are  pretty sure you will be purring rather than hissing after mealtime.

5 ingredients served 3 different ways

Wow! Is it already June? Seems like this year is flying by. I would prefer it to move straight on to September. I am not a fan of hot weather. I do not like water, so no jumping in pools to keep me cool or have fun swimming in. I am a cool weather kind of pup. It has already been pretty hot here in the Midwest, so I have been staying indoors where the ac is going.  I have always been a fan of indoor fetch, so I get some exercise that way.  I am still on that darn diet, so any exercise is good for me.

This month, we let the stinky kitties choose something to test out. They are working hard on their review, so I went and decided to get mine done first. They are pretty excited to talk about the food they tried, but today is all about me! (like it isn’t about me every single day) I really liked the previous food topper I tried, so I decided to try a different brand out. This month I picked out Honest Kitchen’s Proper Toppers Grain Free Turkey Recipe. It also comes in fish, beef, and chicken.


Proper Toppers contain 5 whole food dehydrated food ingredients. It also contains vitamins and minerals, so if you choose to feed this as a meal, you can assure that we are getting the nutrients we need. It also can be fed as a treat in addition to being fed as a meal or meal topper. The turkey toppers ingredients include Turkey, apples, pumpkin, blueberries, and chard.  Super yummy super foods that pups love.

These super foods not only have a lot of great vitamins and minerals, but they also have a lot of great health benefits. These super foods help aid in our digestive health, keep our joints happy and healthy, and the antioxidants support our immune system.

Proper toppers contain 90% meat! It also is 100% human grade and made in a USDA inspected facility. Even though it says human grade, it does not mean that humans should be eating this. It is meant to be given to us pups only. Each tablespoon has 44.9 calories. If using as a food topper, then give 2 tablespoons per 20 lbs of body weight. I would get 5 tablespoons.


It does not contain a measuring device, but my humans have three million sets of measuring spoons and cups, so not a big deal.  5 tablespoons is just about 1/3 cup. We found a chart online that converted tablespoons to cups to make it easier to measure properly. If you do choose to feed this as a complete meal then splash a little warm water on top before serving.

We are just using this as a topper, so 5 tablespoons it is. (more or less, she did not measure the first time)



I got to test out a few pieces as a treat first, to see what my thoughts were. I thought it was super tasty and wanted more. When it was time for breakfast, I got less than my usual amount to make up for the additional calories that the toppers would bring to the bowl.  I went straight for the toppers and ate all of those first. I then proceeded to walk away. I was hoping for more toppers, but mom nixed that idea. I can’t help that I find something I like and want more of it!

I really liked this food topper. It has a lot of tasty ingredients (no peas!). It contains zero ingredients from China , and because it is human grade, we can feel better that they are making sure we only get the best meat available.  While mom would not feed me this as a meal due to costs, she would give this to me as a meal topper and a treat.

I give this meal topper 4 paws up!
