Evolution Cat Kibble (picture is the 8lb bag)
is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the
AAFCO cat food nutrient profiles for all life stages from kitten to
adult. Manufactured by a vegan owned company that makes exclusively
vegan pet foods (no meat products in anything they make!), this
formula contains whole grains, vegetable proteins, vegetable oil,
herbs, vitamins and minerals (and Taurine, too!) This way you can
feed cats a diet that’s cruelty-free and avoid unhealthy
preservatives, slaughterhouse waste, saturated animal fats,
antibiotic residues and artificial colors and flavors. Regular
meat-based cat food is comprised of the lowest-grade leftovers from
the meat industry and can be comprised of many things you’d never
willingly want your companion animals to eat, so by feeding them
Evolution food you know you’re only getting healthy natural
vegetable-based ingredients and not the waste that’s unfit for
human (and likely animal) consumption. Features of this product
include the following:
- Natural Protein (without animal by-products or diseased animals)
from non-bloat inducing soy.
- No growth hormone, antibiotic or fecal residues. Growth Hormones
and Antibiotics have been directly linked to various forms of
cancer in animals and humans.
- Pure polyunsaturated vegetable oil with complete fatty acids (no
saturated animal fat and no cholesterol like all flesh based pet
foods have). Cats can die from heart disease, strokes, and cancers
related to fats, antibiotics and growth hormones just like people,
so Evolution avoids the unhealthy ingredients that can contribute
to health problems.
- Added Taurine and Carnitine, two essential nutrients for cats
- Added specific proteins for health of heart and urinary
- Added vitamins and herbs to enhance immunity and increase life
- Low Mineral Ash, Low Magnesium; High Methionine to prevent kidney
- All products are 100% complete for all life stages. If you have
different aged cats for example, you don't have to feed them
- Live Enzymes and Acidophilus and Bifidus microbes to aid
digestion and utilization of food.
- More concentrated and more easily utilized, Evolution goes 30%
further than regular and ultra premium pet foods, therefore
reducing the amount of fecal material pick up.
- Vitamin A Acetate Especially needed by cats.
Evolution Diet kibble is available in two flavors - Gourmet Pasta
and Veggie Cheezburger (more intense flavor- great for cats new to
vegan food!). Available in a 1 lb. trial size for $3.99, an 8
lb. bag for $29.99, a 20 lb. bag for $59.99 and an economical
40 lb. bag for $84.99.
**NOTE** - If you are not sure how your cat will enjoy this food,
we recommend starting with either the 1 lb. or 8 lb. bag to test as
this product is non-returnable due to the finicky nature of our
feline friends. It is also recommended that cats have a balanced
diet of moist food as well as dry kibble, so please be sure to
either moisten this food on occasion or feed your cat wet food in
addition to the dry kibble to avoid potential health issues. Some
cats have a more difficult time adapting to a vegan diet than
others, so please monitor your cats closely during the transition
to a vegan diet to ensure that they maintain optimal health during
this phase, and have your cat’s health checked regularly by a
licensed veterinarian. We are not veterinarians and cannot offer
medical advice regarding cats and issues that may arise on a vegan
diet, so if you have questions or concerns regarding this please
contact your veterinarian as they can best assist in this area. We
can only share information that is stated by the manufacturer
regarding their products, as we are neither animal nutritionists
nor the creators of this item.

VERY tasty but ... hard.
From JUNE NJ1 of LONG BRANCH, New Jersey on .
I bought this and the Evolution canned food. Both flavors of each. This review is for the kibble (dry food).
So: *I* liked the taste. Both flavors!
I'd never tasted cat kibble, because I didn't have my own cats before I went vegan, and I didn't really care. This time, I did taste it, and it was very interesting. The flavors are quite tasty! Both Veggie Cheezburger and Gourmet Pasta.
However, it *is* very hard - I haven't tried mixing it with water yet, as some have recommended. For the cats, I mean.
As for my cats: same reaction as with the canned food; they didn't hate it, BUT they were only so-so with it. So I mixed their other kibble in with it, and they eat it that way. Like someone else here said - at least they're 'partly vegan'.
I WILL buy it again, and keep mixing their other dry food in with it. I absolutely hate buying and handling meat, so hopefully my guys will eventually be okay with more and greater amounts of the vegan kibble, and less of the other stuff.
Kitteh loves the new flavur ;)
From Lisa of Colorado Springs, Colorado on .
My cat failed to enjoy the previous flavor of Evolution's dry kibble, and I couldn't afford to feed her the double-priced Ami food. But she is a fan of the new Cheezburger flavor, so if your cat didn't like the original kind, consider trying this new one!
My cat loved it, but...
From Jillian of Dallas, Texas on .
My cat was vegan for almost 7 years on this cat kibble. I always fed it to her wet, just to make sure she had enough moisture in her diet. However, she recently suffered a bladder stone almost as wide as a penny! After surgery to have the stone removed, the vet recommended a prescription diet specifically for bladder issues. Of course the prescription diet was full of animal by-products, as well as corn, gluten and soy (which are Evolution's main ingredients), so I didn't buy more after the first bag. Now I feed her strictly canned wet food, grain free, and I try to stick to only seafood ingredients since I still feel weird buying meat-based foods for my kitty. She always seemed happy and healthy on the vegan diet, until the bladder stone, which had been developing for quite some time until the pain was too much for her. Even the folks at Evolution Diet will tell you to supplement their kibble with other protein-based cat food.

From Ashley Urban of Winchester, Virginia on .
My cat always got indigestion from meaty food, even though I only bought him organic "better" brands. I didn't even have to slowly introduce this food, he loved it from first sniff. I feel good buying my furry family member food that agrees with his body and my personal beliefs. Every time I feed him I'm tempted to try it because it smells like cheesy bread but I haven't given in yet.

Great product, my cats love it, but only if mixed with nutritional yeast.
For wet, mix with baby food, kelp supplement, and water!
