Our fur babies were blessed with being sent a bag of Chicken Soup for the Soul Dry Cat food to help facilitate this review. In which – all 13 give it a rating of a five!
The box arrived and I opened it. That was a mistake on my part. I should have put it where it belongs or at the very least – closed the box back up. It wasn’t long after that that Possum decided she was going to tear the bag open!
The next thing I saw was food on the floor and another cat helping themselves to it (not sure of which black cat – we have 5 black cats).
Needless to say, I guess you might say this cat food must be good if they’re into it before it makes it to their food bowls. In fact, they liked this food so much that they devoured the entire bag in less than a week.
There wasn’t one out of the thirteen cats that did not like this food. That tells me a lot since a couple of these kids of ours are picky eaters. And frankly, it’s no savings in my pocket if they won’t eat the food I’ve bought.

It’s nice to know that the company gives back to the animals (and people) in need – here’s a couple tidbits to ponder over:
Because it’s important to give back, we use adopted pets as our models…
A number of us at Chicken Soup for the Soul have adopted animals from shelters. So, when it came time to shoot the photos for our new pet food packaging, we had an idea. Instead of paying for “professional” pet models, we donated money to a local shelter and featured some of their cats and dogs, ones that had recently found their “forever homes.” On the back of each package, you can read about the rescue dog or cat pictured on the front.
Because we use all our products to give back to animals and people too…
Improving the world around us is part of Chicken Soup for the Soul’s mission of sharing happiness, inspiration and wellness through everything they do. Today we focus our philanthropic activities on the Humpty Dumpty Institute, our charitable partner. We collaborate with the Humpty Dumpty Institute on a number of initiatives related to literacy, hunger and animals. A portion of all Chicken Soup for the Soul sales goes to Humpty Dumpty to support its work.
