Cat food brands
Moving forward, the only cat food brands I will talk about are those that make it on Susan Thixton’s list.
These brands have to provide documentation, verification, and certification proof that their products are indeed human-grade, raised humanely, non-GMO, etc.
I highly suggest buying this list every year!
Best wet cat food brands
There are many more on Susan’s list. But these are the ones I have personal experience with.
All are suitable for all life stages except where noted otherwise.
Dr. Karen Becker and Steve Brown formulated Raised Right. It has limited ingredients and very few synthetic supplements.
Buy Raised Right from their website. Use code PETS20 for 20% off your first box. NOTE: Raised Right is suitable for adult cats only.
Smalls wet food is also human-grade and offers more protein and texture variety than Raised Right.
Tell them about your cats and use code CATICLES for $5 off your first box. Note: Smalls fresh wet food is human-grade. Their freeze-dried raw food is feed-grade (currently awaiting more details from them on this).
Read my Smalls cat food review or watch the video below.
Just Food for Cats
Just Food for Cats has the least amount of variety among wet foods. But you may be able to find it locally at Petco.
This would be helpful if your cat is currently picky and eating fish-flavored foods.

Watch the video below for my review.
Best complete raw cat food brands
There are freeze-dried and frozen raw options below. I do not have personal experience with them. However, they are on Susan’s list.
Quest Cat Food
Quest Cat Food has freeze-dried and frozen raw complete cat food. There are no synthetic supplements. Both options are in nugget form so that is very easy for beginners to portion and serve.
Buy Quest Cat Food from their website and use code JESSCATICLES for 20% off.
Viva Raw Complete
Viva Raw complete uses whole food ingredients and only 3 added supplements.
They have excellent protein variety, and this is a great option for beginners to raw.
I tested beef, chicken, and turkey with Jericho, and he loved all three!

Darwin’s Natural Pet
Darwin’s frozen raw cat food uses mostly whole food ingredients. But there are a few synthetic supplements. You can do a subscription which would be helpful for busy cat parents.
Best homemade raw
Homemade raw is the best option since you have more control over the ingredients and how it’s made.
Please follow the instructions carefully. Supplements are not interchangeable.
Viva Raw Pure
Viva Raw currently also has pure blends to which you would add your own supplements. They have a good variety of proteins. And you can buy either chunked or ground.

Hare Today has so many raw options! There are 19+ proteins in various textures. Frozen and freeze-dried grinds, whole chunks of meat, meaty bones, supplements, and more.

Water is the most essential nutrient. Unfortunately, the water quality in the US is low.
It’s important to test your water’s quality to see which treatment option is best for you.
I use Tap Score test kits.
They have test kits for all types of water:

The indoor version of hunting is playing. So all cats like to play. We just need the right toys!
I think the best cat toys are all on Etsy. But I’ve also included Amazon under this list and video.
Buy on Etsy:
Watch the video below to see Jericho in action with these toys.
Best cat toys on Amazon:
Furniture should satisfy multiple enrichment needs. These needs include climbing, scratching, hunting, hiding, resting, and playing.
Try to buy furniture that checks as many boxes as possible.
- Cat Ladder
- Purrfect Post
- Ripple Rug on Chewy, Amazon (beware of fakes), and their website has more options
- Window perch on Amazon (the one Jericho has) or Chewy (similar)
- Cat bed on Etsy
- Budget-friendly condo on Chewy and Amazon (better than no condo!)
Read the PDF toolkit or watch the video below to see Jericho in action with these cat enrichment supplies.
Litter box setup
I’ve scooped hundreds of boxes working as a cat sitter. So I fine-tuned a cleaning routine and litter supplies setup.
Shop everything on Amazon (except Ripple Rug bottom only):
Ripple Rug bottom only is on their website.
- Stainless steel litter box
- Metal litter scoop
- Walnut litter
- Double-layer litter mat
- Dog waste bags (for DIY genie)
- Door Buddy (to keep dogs and children out)
