Quinoa, cauliflower and kale: the trendy superfoods of our world. They’re not exclusive to humans, though, and we happen to have sourced the superfood taking the housecat market by storm: green tripe, the stomach lining of an animal. Now that might not sound like it’s #trending, but tripe’s nutritional value secures its spot high up in the superfood chain – and, most unlike their usually fussy nature, our feline friends around the world are meowing for more.
What’s this tripe hype all about?
Green tripe is exactly what it says on the tin (or bag – at Feline Natural we have a freeze-dried option, too!). Our Lamb Green Tripe Booster is sourced from 100% New Zealand grass-fed, free-range Lamb, and its ‘green’ status means it isn’t bleached or processed in any way, maximising its nutritional value. All we add is a little fresh New Zealand spring water to the canned version – which conveniently offers 25% of your cat’s daily water intake.
Green tripe truly packs a punch when it comes to nutritional value: we’re talking essential fatty acids omega 3 and 6, active digestive enzymes and protein.
All the good stuff and none of the bad, Lamb Green Tripe is hailed to;
- Boosts the immune system
- Assist in building healthy muscle
- Support healthy skin and coat
- Low allergenic
- Helps soothe gastrointestinal upsets
- Maintains and supports healthy digestion
What’s the catch?
That’s quite a list of pros, but we’ll be honest, there is one con – the smell. We’d turn our noses up at it if it was served up for dinner… but wouldn’t we at all pet food? Your cat, on the other hand, will love you for it (even if they look at you with grumpy cat’s signature look on first tasting). We’ve tested tripe with cats of all breeds, sizes, ages and levels of fussiness – and if they didn’t clean the bowl first go, a little perseverance on our part and they were licking their lips with nutritional goodness – and trust us, the perseverance is worth it.
The proof is in the pudding, right? With our 100% palatability guarantee, serve up a dose to your cat and let us know what you think!
