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. The company is well regarded, with an unimpeachable safety record -- and that's enough to earn it nods despite not having yet earned AAFCO certification.
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.
Nature's Logic 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, but that doesn't stop most experts from recommending it anyway. Nature's Logic dry cat and dog food and canned dog food have already met the standards.
No recalls, no BPA -- and a signed Pledge. Nature's Logic is one of a handful of companies that 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.
High cost per can, but very nutrient-dense. At about $2.50 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. 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. $1.65 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.
Susan Thixton thoroughly reviews most cat food brands, from supermarket staples to premium varieties such as Nature's Logic. Each variety is rated on its own on a four-point scale (for canned food since none can earn higher than that), concentrating on ingredient quality. Any issues are highlighted and discussed.
