We take a look at Natures Menu cat food, ‘Europe’s leading experts’ on raw cat food.

We’re big fans of quality cat food here at Best For Cats; we love our cats and if we can find a great quality product at a good price, we’re all over it! Having reviewed Thrive’s Cat Food with its excellent meat content, we were keen to explore what else is available on the market for cat owners who want excellent quality food for their cats, with a high meat content and an absence of fillers and additives. Enter Natures Menu cat food.

About Natures Menu Cat Food

Despite being established in 1981, Natures Menu wasn’t a brand we’d come across before until we stumbled upon their Twitter account, so here’s a bit about them from their website:

Our ethos right from the start has been that pets want and deserve real, honest food.  From our beginnings selling plain minces for dogs back in the 80’s, we now produce a huge range of delicious, complete and balanced meals for cats and dogs, made with high quality ingredients which we supply to stores and homes across the UK and beyond. At Natures Menu we are passionate about our pets and are proud to be part of a movement toward better standards for pet foods and clearer pet food labelling.

It turns out that their range of raw, high-quality meat products is extensive. Here are some that caught our eye:

Natures Menu cat food — Multi 12 Pack

Natures Menu Cat Food multi pack

One of the main products in the Natures Menu line up, their multi packs contain 12 resealable pouches in a mix of flavours. The natural food is packed full of ethically-sourced meats and includes the following features:

  • Free from artificial preservatives
  • Free from artificial colours & flavours

Although not the cheapest cat food, the quality of meats and ingredients seems excellent, and a 12 pack of pouches costs around £11.00, which we didn’t think was too bad at all considering the ingredients.

As with Natures Menu cat food, their range of cat treats are made with a very high meat content (95% in this case) and are gluten free without any artificial colours or flavours;

  • Natural Real Meat Cat Treats
  • Easily Cut Into Smaller Pieces
  • Wheat & Gluten Free

These are currently available to buy for around £7.00 for 4 packs. We’ve ordered some and we’ll report back!

Feeding Advice

One thing we LOVE about the Natures Menu website; they have an excellent ‘feeding advice‘ section, dedicated to guides, articles and frequently asked questions on natural feeding options for your cat. This is a really useful resource that’s clearly had some thought put into it.

Do your cats love Natures Menu cat food, and would you recommend a raw diet of high-quality food for you cats? Let us know in the comments!

  1. I had a cat suffering from, what the vet described as being, incurable struvites likely caused by his genetics. He was put on a derivative-based renal diet for the rest of his life. Despite the “scientifically formulated” diet, he still got infections. Not being content with feeding him derivatives, I contacted Natures Menu and spoke to their vet. I then moved him onto Natures Menu pouches and raw nuggets mixed with excess water. Within a few months, I took another urine sample from him to the vet for analysis. There was no trace of struvites and he has not suffered with infections since. Needless to say, he has remained healthy on Natures Menu ever since – the high cost of quality food is well worth paying.

  2. I cant recommend this company enough, after being told by my vet that my cat had “behavioural issues” I decided to research into a better diet. I found Natures Menu and put both my cats onto Country Hunter Pouches. After initial reluctant they now both lap it up often attempting to open the door to get another sneaky pack! The change in my naughty boy has been amazing, he has become so loving, no more attacking his brother or peeing over the house. I love this product. 🙂
