Gluten, Grain, and Carrageenan-Free Cat Food

Last Updated on October 15, 2022 by ellen

Have you been looking for a gluten, grain, and carrageenan-free cat food? It can be challenging to find a cat food that your cat will love that’s also good for them. Just like when you shop for people food, you should be looking at the label when you buy your pet’s food. If you see ingredients like carrageenan, it may be time to look for a new cat food.

Introducing a New Gluten, Grain, and Carrageenan-Free Cat Food

Carrageenan-Free Cat Food

With International Cat Day happening on August 8, and Happy Healthy Cat Month in September now is the perfect time to address the ‘cat in the room’—and that’s your feline friend’s diet. I’ll be the first to admit my own cat’s diet isn’t ‘purr’fect. Scout and Heather can be picky eaters or ignore their water bowl even when it’s placed right next to their food. I struggled to understand how I could address these issues. But then I realized I wasn’t alone—my cat was just experiencing one of the three most common cat concerns: picky eating, weight gain, and urinary tract issues.

I learned about the Big 3 by partnering with Weruva — a luxurious, natural pet food dubbed “people food for cats” which is launching a full line of gluten, grain, and carrageenan-free cat food in honor of International Cat Day. It’s called B.F.F. OMG! (that stands for Best Feline Friend, Oh My Gravy), and it’s all about preventing these Big 3 Cat Concerns. You can see Scout is paying attention!

If your cat has any of these, you might want to consider changing their diet:

Picky Eater

Is your cat picky? Picky eating is usually a problem with texture since cats are carnivores whose tongues and teeth are perfectly evolved for meat-eating. It’s easy to see why a cat might dislike something without real shreds of meat—would you eat a steak with the texture of tapioca? Weruva’s food features these shreds of real meat right off the bone, which is why my cat took to it like a duck to water (or a cat to gravy)!

Weight Gain

Got a fat cat? The problem is in the kibble. It’s filled with unnecessary carbs, which are almost impossible for cats to process (they don’t produce amylase, an enzyme which helps humans digest their food). Weruva’s B.F.F. OMG! has no kibble to worry about because it’s 100% real meats in their true form.

UTI Issues

UT-why? Urinary tract issues often stem from dehydration—even if you’re giving your cat plenty of water. In the wild, cats stay hydrated through the food they eat instead of what they drink. Cats are used to ‘eating’ their water—but most wet foods don’t have nearly enough hydration to keep them satisfied. All of the products in Weruva’s B.F.F. OMG! line are over 85% hydration, which satisfies my cat’s hydration needs.

I love Weruva products because they are considered ‘people food for pets.’ The new line of B.F.F. OMG! cans and pouches feature land proteins like boneless and skinless white chicken breast, salmon, beef, duck, lamb and more. All recipes are grain, gluten, and carrageenan free. And if you are a BPA-free home, check out the pouches because they are BPA-free. Best of all, my kitty loves it!

Health isn’t just for humans, and I’m glad I took the time to learn how to feed my BFF properly. Even better, in the process, I found my kitty’s new favorite food. They especially like Weruva’s Chicken and Tuna flavor, which you can read about at You can also explore the whole B.F.F. OMG! lineup there, and find a flavor your cat will ‘paw’sitively adore, at

  1. I love the packaging! Glad to see the pouches are BPA-free. I have seen too many fat cats, that’s for sure. Good that they have more options with this food.

  2. These sound wonderful for the most part for our Oriental Shorthair purr purr princess- CHERISH bliss.
    I love what they do not contain and I am a label reading mommy for her so I know it can be challenging to find foods without all of those things in them.
    She IS a picky eater and I do worry about her urinary tract and even her bladder and kidney especially as she is 12 now and has gone through a terrifying life-threatening trauma when she was younger that could have caused some at least minor permanent danger to her kidneys.
    The hard part though STILL is does this food come in any pure or pate’ that has contains NO pieces, no shreds or chunks at all because our Cherish throws up anything with even the smallest pieces.?
    If not, I hope they will begin to offer it in that formulation as an option as well.
