  1. Tiki Cat wet food w 17 different flavors, no longer exists. Those 5* ratings, no fat, no carb brands, have been nixed, new formula with the Vitamin K3 supplement in the formula. The phone person said they left it on their web page because you can still get it in stores, ha! Tiki Cat sell out! Call them Mr Moderator after you delete this post to confirm.

    1. You are correct sir. Thank you for your post, a lot!

      They seem to have kept the original ‘better’ formula on their site, but the formula itself has changed. It is a shame, really.

      Thanks again.

  2. True or False…..Tiki Cat has added Menadione to the original no carb formulas, aka, Puka Puka Luau, Koolina Luau, Napili Luau ? It is not apparent by reading the ingredients off the labels from the Homepage or any website I have seen that sells Tiki. Anybody got the facts on this as I am seeing multiple posts saying K3 is in the original formulas.

    1. So looking closer at the website, looks like the newest line(Velvet Mousse) has the Vitamin K3.


      Chicken, chicken broth, dried egg, sunflower oil, tricalcium phosphate, xanthan gum, potassium chloride, choline chloride, magnesium sulfate, taurine, zinc amino acid chelate, iron amino acid chelate, vitamin E supplement, ascorbic acid (source of vitamin C), thiamine mononitrate (vitamin B1), niacin (vitamin B3), manganese amino acid chelate, vitamin A supplement, copper amino acid chelate, calcium iodate, calcium pantothenate, sodium selenite, riboflavin supplement (vitamin B2), vitamin B12 supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), folic acid, vitamin D3 supplement, biotin, vitamin K3 supplement.

      Hopefully the older formulas will remain the same.

  3. It appears to me that the Tiki Cat Gourmet Carnivore line is being replaced by a Tiki Cat After Dark line. The formulas are not the same. Would you please review the new formulas?

    Thank you,
    Sally OMalley

    1. Absolutely. It looks like Tiki Cat is doing some overhaul to their lines with their changes.

      After Dark is now on this Tiki Cat page.


  4. Is Tiki Cat cat food recommended for diabetic cats?

    1. Hello and thank you for your question.

      With diabetic cats, you really want to limit the carb % to an absolute minimum. So essentially that means no dry food at all. Even the best dry foods still have a higher carb % than what a cat needs.

      Tiki Cat really limits the amount of carb %, so yes it is a good brand. I would stay away from the foods that have fish as the primary source of protein.

  5. Tiki Cat has a new food out in pouches. It is called Velvet Mousse & comes in 6 flavors. If you haven’t reviewed this yet, would you please consider doing so? Looking at the ingredient list, it looks like it might be an excellent food!


    1. Thank you for your comment. Sincerest apologies getting back to you late.

      I have added the Velvet Mousse to the Tiki Cat page. It can be found on this page, under ‘Velvet Mousse’

      Thanks again for your patience!

  6. I have just heard some disappointing news that Tiki has merged/sold out to another company and there are complaints on their Facebook page from customers who have noticed a decline in the quality of their cat food. It seems that these mergers have been happening frequently in the past couple of years. Such a disappointment.

  7. Would you please review Tiki Cat Oahu Luau Seabass in Seabass Consomme canned cat food? I would like to read your review before I but it.


    1. Someone can please correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe that is the Gourmet Carnivore Seabass food. Perhaps they moved it from the Gourmet Carnivore line to the Luau line.

  8. Compare to copper sulfate in gourmet whole line and cholecalciferol in gourmet carnivore line, which one is more harmful? Thanks.

    1. Hello, thanks for your question.

      Both copper sulfate and cholecalciferol have other uses in other industries, which many pet owners do not like. In high doses, both these ingredients are harmful. In high doses, any ingredient is harmful.

      In pet foods, these ingredients are found in trace amounts, not nearly enough to serious harm your pet. Both these ingredients are found naturally as well. Copper is found in meats, liver, whole grains. Cholecalciferol is found mainly in fish, like tuna. The cooking process alters vitamins and minerals, thus these added supplements are needed at times.

      If I had to pick one or the other, I’d choose a food with copper sulfate with a vitamin D3 supplement. This is merely my opinion, a comfort zone. There is no definitive proof going one way or the other; that one is more harmful than the other. They both do the exact same thing, provide additional supplementation. Copper sulfate for added copper. Cholecalciferol for added vitamin D3.

      A thing you can do is look at the main ingredients. Is the food a fish based food? Is there mostly tuna? Well, there is already cholecalciferol in tuna. Is there additonal cholecalciferol supplementation on top of that? There is copper in tuna as well. Is there additional copper supplementation? If not, what are the other copper sources?

      This doesn’t just apply to copper and vitamin D3, but rather all vitamins and minerals.

      Hope this helped. Thanks again.

  9. Hi, can you please tell me the major difference between Tiki cat gourmet Whole and gourmet carnivor? Compare to Puka Puka Luau and and gourmet carnivor chicken&liver, which one do you think is better?

    1. Hello! Thanks for your comment.

      The Gourmet Whole line is mostly seafood based. Puka Puka Luau and Koolina Luau being the exceptions. The Gourmet Carnivore line tends to use ingredients such as liver, lung, gizzard, heart, etc. The Gourmet Whole line focuses on one main ingredient with broth then very little of other ingredients.

      When comparing Puka Puka Luau to the Chicken & Liver Gourmet Carnivore, Puka Puka uses shredded chicken breast, chicken broth, and sunflower oil mostly. Where as Chicken & Liver has a variety of ingredients. No one ingredient dominates the food, minus the liquid. Puka Puka has a higher calorie content in the food and is also higher in protein. Personally, if I had to pick one or the other I’d go with Puka Puka Luau.

      Thanks again 🙂

  10. Is it safe to feed my cats the Tiki Cat fish line everyday? What do others do?

    1. No, it’s not safe to feed your cat fish every day. The Tiki Cat fish based food is a great quality food, but it’s best served once in awhile as a treat. It shouldn’t be the main protein source for your cats.

      Here’s a good article summing up why you should be careful when dealing with fish in cat food:


  11. I buy the Gourmet carnivore chicken and duck flavor and I do not see Dextrose Anhydrous as an ingredient luckily. Are you going to review this line?

    1. Thank you for your suggestion 🙂

      Truth be told that should have been done awhile ago. Flat out forgot about this line of Tiki Cat food. It will be up shortly.

    2. To follow up on this the Gourmet Carnivore line is now located here: http://bestcatfoodforcats.com/tiki-cat-gourmet-cat-food-reviews-and-ratings

  12. I have been buying the gourmet carnivore for a while. Also I have a been reading on what’s good for a cat and what’s not..I thought this was a great choice because it doesnt have the any glutens or starches or grains… then I read about sugars causes cancer in cats…much to my disappointment the Gourmet Carnivore as sugar in it…Dextrose Anhydrous…a sugar.

    1. Hello – Thank you for your comment.

      Dextrose anhydrous is indeed a sugar source. It is a form of glucose, which is a sugar. This dextrose is anhydrous which means it contains no water. It is a dry form of sugar, compared to a wet form like syrup.

      It is just another carbohydrate source that is hidden in pet foods. An ingredient such as this makes the label ‘grain free’ moot. Cats have no need for this unnecessary carbohydrate source.

      In this instance, consistent feeding of a cat food that contains this ingredient may bring about potential health problems in the future. This is especially true if this ingredient is in abundance in the cat food. Obesity and diabetes are definitely a cause for concern. Cancer is indeed another concern as well.

      There is really no good reason dextrose has to be an ingredient in cat food. I don’t blame you for your disappointment.
