19 Canned Cat Foods From 9Lives®

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 = Below Average

E = Poor Choice

X = Detrimental to a Cat’s Health

Based Solely on Reviewing the Ingredients

All 19 9Lives® 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® products to be a detriment to a cat’s long-term health. I give the entire product line an ‘X’ – Detrimental/Rejected.

My Review Summary

My Evaluation/Review Of The Entire

9Lives® 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, poor quality cat food, and I wouldn’t feed it to my cats.”

– Doug Hines, publisher, CatNewsHeadlines.com
