Cat Food Review –

‘Mini-Review’

9Lives® Meaty Pâté™

• DRY FOOD HURTS CATS •

(High Carb/Chem, Artificial Ingredients, No Moisture)

• Dry Food Now = Bad Health, Suffering and Vet Bills Later •

This Isn’t Rocket Science Folks. Just Look at The Ingredients.

“Cat Food Manufacturers – Want Better Reviews? Use Better Ingredients.” – Doug Hines

– CAT FOOD MINI-REVIEW –

7 Canned Cat Foods From the 9Lives®

Meaty Pâté™ Product Line

‘Mini-Review’ in the sense that this review doesn’t cover all of the 9Lives product line

– in comparison to other reviews in this website series.

How I Evaluate Cat Foods…

“After having studied the ingredients in over 1,500 wet, canned cat foods, I created this website. This is the place to hear some truth about cat food. It’s also the place where you can learn to evaluate cat food brands yourself.” – Doug Hines

First read the Cat Food Reviews – Introduction to understand how I evaluate products.

I assign review ratings based solely on the ingredients in the can.

This is not some subjective bake-off where I am grading chocolate chip cookies because they taste good to me. My personal likes and dislikes have absolutely nothing to do with the rating process. An ingredient either contributes to, or detracts from, a cat’s health. Period. 

Look at the can’s ingredients list and compare it to the bad ingredients list HERE.

Protect your cat’s long term health. Don’t feed products which contain bad ingredients. Choose wisely now, and give your cat a good, healthy life later.

Review Ratings:

A = Superior Cat Food     B = Better Than Average     C = Average     D = Less Than Average

E = Substandard/Poor-Quality     X = Detrimental to a Cat’s Health

Based Solely on Reviewing the Ingredients

All 7 Products are Rated ‘X’ (Rejected) – Detrimental to a Cat’s Health

OVERALL PRODUCT LINE REVIEW RATING

Based solely on the ingredients, I consider the 9Lives® Meaty Pâté™ series to be a detriment to a cat’s long-term health. I give the entire product line an ‘X’ – Detrimental/Rejected.

Bad and/or Questionable Ingredients in 9Lives® Meaty Pâté™

See the individual products below to see which product has which ingredient.

  •  ANIMAL DIGEST  •  meat by-products (a generalized term like ‘meat’ could be

     anything at all. Is there alligator meat in my cat food? ‘By-products’ could be anything

     from hooves to feathers)  •  poultry by-products  •  steamed bone meal

  •  menadione sodium bisulfite complex [See the Special Report About MSBC Here]

  •  sodium tripolyphosphate  •  sodium nitrite  •  copper sulfate  •  sodium selenite

  •  natural flavor  •  modified food starch  •  brewers rice  •  wheat flour

  •  dried whey solubles  •  dried whey product  •  salt  •  soy protein concentrate

  •  vegetable oil (preserved with BHA/BHT)  •  guar gum  •  caramel color  •  Red 3

  •  titanium dioxide (color)  •  iron oxide (color)  •  carrageenan

My Review Summary

My Evaluation/Review Of The Entire 9Lives® Meaty Pâté™ Product Line

“There are too many detrimental ingredients in this product line to even consider feeding it to your cat(s).

One would think that, once a detrimental ingredient has been identified, manufacturers would remove said ingredients from their products. Not so with 9Lives. They have sold these products for years. 

I consider ALL 9Lives products to be substandard cat food, and I wouldn’t feed it to my cats.”
