Review Summary

Our Final Verdict

We give Soulistic cat food a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.

Soulistic is a cat food brand that focuses on using quality ingredients to provide hydration for a healthy cat. Owned by Weruva, another popular pet food company, Soulistic can be found at Petco and Amazon. Soulistic is based in the U.S., but their cat food is sourced, packaged, and shipped from a human-grade food-processing facility in Thailand.

Soulistic has developed four lines of food for your favorite feline:
  • Original Recipes – Protein-rich recipes with thick cuts of meat and fish for the pickiest of eaters.
  • Pates – Smooth texture for picky felines, but slightly higher in calories than the Original Recipe line.
  • Moist & Tender – Gravy-coated, deboned meat to entice any feline.
  • Kitten – High-protein recipe in a variety of textures with healthy fats and low carbs for growing kittens.

If you’re concerned about how much water your cat is getting daily, the moisture content in Soulistic cat food will help your kitty’s daily water quota. The company aims to promote feline health through hydration, human-grade, quality ingredients, and the vitamins and minerals needed for a healthy life.

    We set out to learn not only about Soulistic’s wet cat food but also who they are as a company. We learned that they have a mission to bring hydration to all cats and they have high standards for food production with their products. Read on to delve deeper into this company and what they have to offer you and your feline. https://www.instagram.com/p/BT7-pMmjY1d/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

    Who Makes Soulistic and Where Is It Produced?

    Soulistic is owned by the pet food brand Weruva, a U.S.-based company. It is produced in a factory in Thailand that also produces food for people, intended for distribution around the globe. The USFDA recognizes the Thailand FDA, and the production facility is USFDA certified. Thailand-produced pet food faces stricter guidelines for production and quality than comparable foods produced in the U.S.  The production factory also has a top rating from the British Retail Consortium (BRC), an exacting third-party certification that helps consumers and producers of food to feel confident in the standards for packaging, storage, safety, and distribution.

    Which Types of Cats is Soulistic Best Suited For?

    Soulistic is best for cats that enjoy good moist food, or that need to be switched to a wet food due to health concerns. Soulistic focuses on developing foods for picky eaters by using quality ingredients and offering a variety of textures for your cat, so you’re sure to find a food that will whet its appetite. The wet style of food also helps keep your cat hydrated if your cat doesn’t drink water throughout the day. Wet food is also better for cats that get urinary tract infections (UTIs), a common problem for cats because the high moisture content keeps your cat hydrated. It is also low in ash, which is composed of magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus, and comes from cooked bone because the company uses bone-free meat to create the food. Low ash helps to protect your cat from UTIs and stones.

    Which Types of Cats Might Do Better with a Different Brand?

    Cats with food allergies, such as fish, might not do well with Soulistic. Many of their proteins have fish as a second ingredient. If your pet has other dietary concerns and doesn’t like wet food, you might want to try a limited-ingredient food. Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet is a grain-free dry cat food made without beef, chicken, or fish, and contains no dairy, no grains, no potatoes, and no chickpeas, which are common food allergens.

    Discussion of the Primary Ingredients (Good and Bad)

    Many of the recipes contain meats in a moisture-rich gravy, gelee, or broth.

    Here are the meats you will find listed as the main ingredient in the Soulistic Cat Food:
    • Poultry (duck, chicken, and turkey)
    • Beef
    • Fish (tuna, salmon, tilapia, and crab)
    • Lamb

    Many of the recipes contain a primary meat but then add in a fish like tuna. If your cat is allergic to fish, you will need to check the list of ingredients carefully before placing an order.
