I Can't Believe I Ate the Holistic Thing! Grain Free Holistic Select Review & Giveaway

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, check out the new food! Glogirly got out the fancy plates so it must be REALLY special. I call the chicken flavor!

KATIE:  Gee that's a surprise, Waffles. Never saw that coming.

WAFFLES:  What are YOU having, Boss?



KATIE:  Hmmm... Chicken, turkey, salmon... Holistic Select. I think I'll have one of each. You go ahead with that little can of chicken, Waffles. I'll just get started on these extra-large cans.



WAFFLES:  Extra-large??? What you talkin' bout, Boss?


On the Hunt for a New Daily Diet: Introducing Holistic Select's New Canned Cat Food Recipes 
Waffles and his chicken obsession aside, we don't talk about food all that often here. But when something comes along that blows our fur back, we really want to share it with you. We received a an assortment of Holistic Select's new grain free canned cat formulas recently...or as Glogirly says, "in the nick of time." 

Waffles and I recently decided we were tired of our daily diet. There was a lot going on here last month...stressors that likely had an effect on our eating habits. Waffles was galavanting around the country posing for pictures and starring in videos. Meanwhile I was making friends with the ER vet. A quick diagnosis of a bacterial infection and a few antibiotics later, I was fine. But our food wasn't. I wanted a change and in a rare act of solidarity, even Waffles decided he was done with the usual menu.

We tried a handful of foods and brands. A sniff here, a lick there, nothing was making much of an impression on us. 


Enter Holistic Select
Usually Glogirly will introduce a new food to us gradually by mixing it with our old. But since we'd already turned our noses up at the old, she went all-in. One delicious flavor after another, Waffles and I both were gobbling it up, renewing our membership in the Clean Plate Club. 

Not only do the Holistic Select flavors taste great, Glogirly feels really good about the quality and nutritional attributes of their new formulas. The price is very competitive with other premium brands. ...in fact we're saving a little money each month by using their larger 13 ounce cans!



Why's Holistic a Winner With Us?
1. We're Cleaning Our Plates! 
Doesn't matter how fancy, how healthy, how expensive your food is if you're not eating it. Boss! We're wearing the same outfit!
2.  Prebiotic Support
Holistic Select believes total body health begins with digestive health. Chicory root extracts provide prebiotic support for healthy digestion. ...this is a biggee for me and my sensitive stomach. I've not had a single issue on the hardwoods or even the nice rugs since I started eating Holistic.
3.  What it Doesn't Have is as Important as What it Does
No grains, no wheat, no soy, no corn, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.d we didn't even call each other the night before!
4.  Variety
Seven different flavors and we haven't found one we didn't like! Though Glogirly prefers to serve us poultry as a primary protein source, we occasionally will have salmon or fish as a treat. Our two favorites are the Turkey Pate and Chicken Pate recipes. The Turkey & Salmon Pate recipe is our favorite special treat.
5.  For Cats of All Life Stages
Though Waffles is still a young and obnoxious teenager and I'm a sophisticated and experienced cat, who looks incredibly young for my age, Holistic Selects recipes are perfect for us both. So much so, I have to watch my dish like a hawk with Waffles is around.
6.  THREE Can Sizes! 
All of the varieties come in 3 ounce, 5.5 ounce and 13 ounce cans. This is GREAT news for multi-cat households that are tired of opening all those tiny cans everyday.

  2. I want my cats to like their food but I want it to be good for them. Sounds like this is what we need.

  3. I haven't had this yet but Binga and Boodie have and they like it!

  4. Healthy, quality ingredients. I used to buy the "big" brand names, but in time read about things like grains and fillers and moved my cats to a more natural, grain-free diet. I have seen a real positive change but I know there is room for improvement in their diets.

  5. The main attribute has to be that Leonardo will actually eat it; lots of things he just leaves most of it.

  6. Health is the most important attribute to have in a cat food for me, taste is a priority for my guys. They're extremely picky and have repeatedly turned their noses up at healhier choices.

    ReplyDelete
  7. It looks like yummy foods. We are not surprised Waffles wanted to try the chicken first, either :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Since Katie is pickier than Waffles, we bet we will love it too ....

  9. Wow dat looks purretty pawsum. Glad y'all be enjoyin' it.

  10. Holistic Select was one of the first brands I picked up when I was transitioning Richard from his prescription food to regular food (but the store only had one flavour). We've now found a store that stocks several varieties so HS is a regular in the food rotation here. And I love that it comes in big cans - definitely a money saver that I wish the other brands I feed him had.

    ReplyDelete
  11. We want healthy and yummy noms. Love the picture of Katie trying to steal the food right off the plate!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Love the holistic food but it tends to come in those itty bitty cans at the highest price so it's nice to see it in a larger size for us multiple cat families.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Mom is looking for something new to try for Rhette. Needless to say there's been no weight loss. We tried 2 cans of the Merrick per your suggestion and he didn't eat it, just licked the juices. RIght now we feed him Merrick kibble, he just seems to prefer kibble but want to still try some canned food. Thanks for the offer guys! Love Dolly

  14. Oh wow, Katie and Waffles, that food sound delicious! We're all pretty picky eaters here, so that may be one we'd like to try. Hugs to you both, and to Glogirly and Gloman, too.

    ReplyDelete
  15. We tried Holistic Select just recently ourselves and we like it! We really like it! So we would love to get some more.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ingredients are by far the most important thing. A close second is whether our picky Maine Coon will eat it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. mom may have to look into that - you had her at "large can" :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I will be looking for this brand next time I shop for "Itty" Bits! She is eating grain free wet food ever since a bad bought of stomach upset.

    ReplyDelete
  19. We haven't heard of that brand, but it must be good. Truffle will eat almost anything, but Brulee is the finicky one. We'd love to try out this food and find something she'll eat all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  20. We would like to try this brand. It looks really good. I'll bet the chicken flavor is yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thaisa needs grain-free food, and hates all the ones we've tried. I know that if Kartie (I mean, The Boss) likes it, we will, too!

    ReplyDelete
  22. It looks like the food is a hit with both of them.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The most important part of Thunder's food is if he will eat it. He is so fussy. I would love to give this a try if it tastes as good as you guys say.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hmmm. My Hansi has also started to become a bit fussy. We like grain free cat food. We might have to give it a try.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow - my three need to try this because they have the ho-hums with the standard fare, and nothing new has sparked their interest - maybe this would be the thing!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Glad you two found foods that you both enjoy! We're very picky and our mommy wants us to eat healthy foods which we usually don't like but sounds like we'd like this one so we'll try it!

    ReplyDelete
  27. The most important is that I’ll eat it. I’m extremely fussy with wet food and treats. She only tries new brands when we win them or get them in a campaign. If Katie likes this, I may.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm glad to hear cats with discriminating taste like it (another words: picky!)We'd like to give it a try here.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Moo and NeeNee are both seniors now. So what I feed them needs to be the best quality that I can afford to keep them healthy as long as possible!

    ReplyDelete
  30. After doing a lot of research I recently changed my 7 cats to Holistic Select Grain Free. All of them love the food and I have noticed they don't throw up any more and their eye issues which I believe were from a food allergy are mostly gone. I am so happy I found this food.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have a few kitties here that will eat most any wet food and a couple that are picky..I would love to have them try this food..I also like the bigger size cans!

    ReplyDelete
  32. So, holistic means liable to holes, right? MOL being a picky eater, we could do with that here, though The Staff now tells me that I am getting a bit on the rotund side!!! Cheek! Will enter and hopefully win for Marg :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have two senior sisters @ 19 years old. Feeding is a chore to find something that stays down or just gets eaten.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Meowm is on the search for foods for me and my brofur! Maybe this will be our new foods!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Mom wants food that's healthy, but the kitties have to have the tasty stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  38. My food has to be yummy or I won't eat it. Grain free is a very important attribute too.

    ReplyDelete
  39. The food we eat is the same kind of healthy ood : all natural, and high quality ingredients. Purrs

    ReplyDelete
  40. Natural ingredients, no fillers, palatable.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'd like to see if my picky ones would like this!

    ReplyDelete
  42. That food must be good. You are really going for it Katie.

    ReplyDelete
  43. That my kitties like it and it's good for sensitive tummies. Thanks for the giveaway.

  44. Oh my COD, Katie, that photo of you going after the food is priceless! We love that Holistic Select makes big cans. It seems like most companies who make good food insist on making it only in tiny cans, so that certainly has our attention.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Those are huge cans! We will take them all. Chick-hen, fish, beef, YUM.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Katie did you hear? Waffles is doing a giveaway of your foods
    Lily & Edward

  47. Mom says the most important for her would be that all of us would eat it. Fiona and Giulietta are not fans of canned food, and Giulietta is getting fat. Hope we win. Ho, ho, ho, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm so glad that they've come out with grain free! Great blog post. Sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  49. We hope we are eating better than before. Chewy.com helps!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Most important attirbute? That is is tasty enough for Peanut (18) to eat. She is discerning (OK call her fussy) and getting her to eat ANYthing is an uphill job! We are in NZ so would like to donate our prize to Place for Cats (NYC) if we won.

    Harvey, Miranda and Silver

  51. oooh, so rare to see the large can option for a healthy food choice

    ReplyDelete
  52. To start with, will they eat it? If not, doesn't matter how healthy it is. Sounds like you two really enjoyed this food.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Fantastic! Hope you both continue to love it!

    ReplyDelete
  54. My cat has to enjoy it first, there are many "healthy" cat foods she wont eat, and a few she will.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Allie: a good, high quality meal that passes our discriminating tastes is hard to find - good for you!

    ReplyDelete
  56. We'd love to try the canned foods... their dry fish based food saved our Willow's tummy!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I only feed grain-free, but have not seen this brand! Thanks for educating me!

    ReplyDelete
  58. First of all, she has to like it. Plus I don't want any extra filler or crud in it. Then it can't break the bank, because if I can't afford it, I can't buy it and then what good does it do her?

    ReplyDelete
  59. made in the usa, quality ingredients.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I'm trying to get all my cats more wet food but so far one refuses any wet food. Another one only once in a while.
    My two oldest love wet food!
    I've tried grain-free dry ( which all refused) so maybe they would like this better!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I would love to try this my cats r 10 and 11 and need good food i cant afford to buy very often. otherwise they get friskies canned

    ReplyDelete
  62. I look for cat foods that have little to no plants in them

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'd like to try this on my 15 year old furbaby. Always looking for good food for a good price.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I buy great quality canned foods which often go uneaten. So I guess one thing I hope/look for is that it will be eaten!

    ReplyDelete
  65. My cats' food needs to contain human-grade ingredients and cooked at a low temp.

    ReplyDelete
  66. For my cats, I insist upon grain-free, non-GMO and natural ingredients. I also will only purchase products that are sourced and made in the USA.

    ReplyDelete

  67. It's been a little while since Tyson and Crook tried a new canned cat food so I was happy when they were given the opportunity by Chewy.com to review Canned cat Food.
