Bottom line

Nature's Logic impresses experts with its whole-foods recipe and high-quality ingredients. This cat food is pricey, but it packs a lot of nutrition into each can.

Ingredient quality

Top quality and all-natural. Nature's Logic is just about as close to a "wild diet" as canned cat food gets: It's made up mostly of meat, organs and plasma, with trace nutrients coming from real foods like eggshells and blueberries, as would be found in the stomachs of cats' prey -- not synthetic supplements. It's extremely low-carb (perfect for cats), and ingredients are top quality (the same quality that people would eat) and all-natural.

The canned cat food is in feeding trials to ensure that it meets AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) nutrition standards as a complete diet; currently, it is approved "for intermittent or supplemental feeding only." Nature's Logic dry cat and dog food and canned dog food have already met the standards.

Product safety

No recalls, no BPA -- and a signed Pledge. Eighteen pet food companies -- including Nature's Logic -- have signed the Pledge to Quality and Origin at Susan Thixton's website, TruthAboutPetFood.com. The pledge lists every ingredient and its source. Nature's Logic sources its ingredients mostly from the U.S., with a few from New Zealand, Canada, Norway, Italy, France and Morocco.

We found no recalls for Nature's Logic at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (which lists pet food recalls back to 2007). In addition, Nature's Logic canned cat food comes in BPA-free cans. Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical that studies have linked to reproductive problems, cancers and other diseases.

Value

High cost per can, but very nutrient-dense. At about $1.70 for a 5.5-ounce can, Nature's Logic chicken is the priciest canned cat food in this report -- and the other flavors cost even more (Duck and Salmon for $1.95 per can, and Rabbit for $2.50 per can). Most reviewers say their cats like it, but a few say their cats wouldn't eat it (it's a finely ground paté, and some cats prefer chunks).

You can get other highly rated cat foods for less, such as the top-rated Halo Spot's Stew Wholesome Chicken Recipe (Est. $1.60 for a 5.5-oz. can) . However, because Nature's Logic is very nutrient-dense, at 240 to 250 calories per can (depending on flavor), a few owners say they're able to feed less.
