    About Cat Person

    cat person wet cat food recipes

    Who Makes Cat Person and Where Is It Produced?

    Cat Person produces all of their food. The company is fairly new and was founded in 2020 by Lambert Wang and Jimmy Wu. They saw a significant lack of quality cat food available and decided to change that!

    Their wet food is made in Thailand using a manufacturer that mostly creates human food.

    Which Types of Cats Is Cat Person Best Suited For?

    Cat Person makes quality, healthy food that’s great for practically any cat. If you can afford it, you really can’t choose a better cat food.

    It’s also very convenient, as it gets delivered right to your door. You can sign up for a subscription, which means you’ll never have to worry about running out of food. If you’re busy and don’t have time to shop in person for cat food, this food is a stellar option.

    Cat Person is committed to using sustainable practices. The company’s food is made with sustainable ingredients, and the company uses sustainable packaging. This makes it a great option for cat owners who are concerned about the environmental impact of their cat’s food. Even the small pamphlet I received with my food was recyclable.

    The Primary Ingredients (Good and Bad)

    Cat Person utilizes quality animal proteins in all of their foods. In fact, that’s practically all their food is. There are no grains or significant carbohydrate sources. The exact protein utilized depends on the flavor. For instance, the Tuna & Salmon recipe includes tuna, fish broth, salmon, and sunflower oil as the primary ingredients.

    Each food is fortified with nutrients that your cat needs. Therefore, these recipes are nutritionally complete despite the fact that most just looked like canned meat.


    This food is a bit costly when compared to other options. You can purchase much cheaper wet food at the store. However, you may not get the same quality, and you have to go to the store to purchase the food. This is not a budget food, but we want the best for our cats!

    Reviewing the Most Popular Cat Person Wet Cat Foods

    Let’s take a look at some of the most popular recipes from this brand: their chicken & duck shreds in broth, chicken pate, and tuna pate

    1. Chicken & Duck Shreds in Broth

    If your cat prefers shredded wet food, Chicken & Duck Shreds in Broth is a great option. The first ingredient is chicken, followed by chicken broth and duck. When you open this food, you can really tell that it’s made primarily of meat. Plus, the addition of broth instead of water increases the nutritional content of this food.

    The food is packaged in single-serving cups, which makes it much easier to feed your cat. Each container includes five of these smaller cups, which are completely recyclable and compostable.

    Because this food is primarily meat, it’s very enticing to cats. If your feline is picky, this food may convince them to eat. Plus, it’s also great for kittens and older cats, as the shreds are very soft.

    • Very tasty
    • High in protein
    • Chicken and duck as the primary ingredients
    • Very easy to serve
    • None

    2. Chicken Pate

    Chicken Pate

    As the name suggests, this recipe is made primarily of chicken, with the main chicken, chicken broth, and dried egg as the main ingredients. The rest of the ingredients serve as nutritional supplements to ensure your feline gets everything they need. This food is simple, high-quality, and healthy.

    According to the website, this food is 53% chicken and 35% broth (the rest is mostly egg). It contains completely no potatoes, corn, rice, or wheat, either.

    Like all Cat Person’s recipes, the Chicken Pate comes in small single-serve cups. They’re much easier to open than a can while still keeping the food fresh for an extended period.

    • Easy-open cups
    • Chicken as the primary ingredient
    • Grain-free and low-carb
    • Simple ingredient list for sensitive cats
    • None

    3. Tuna Pate

    Tuna Pate

    The Tuna Pate includes tuna as the main ingredient as well as fish broth and dried egg, which help the food keep its structure and provide some added nutrients. As always, this food is nutritionally complete with tons of added vitamins and minerals.

    This recipe does not have the broth content like the other recipes we tried. However, the lack of broth may make some cats like it less, though this is mostly a matter of personal preference.

    • Tuna as the primary ingredient
    • Nutritionally complete
    • Easy-to-serve cups
    • No broth

    Our Experience With Cat Person

    Cat in box with Cat person foods

    My first impression of Cat Person was very good. I was particularly impressed by the single-serve cups, which are much easier to open than a can. A simple tug on the plastic tab opened the container—no need to break out the scissors or a can opener. Plus, there were no sharp edges to rip through my garbage bag!

    The single-serve cups are also recyclable, as is most of the packaging. While I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of plastic at first, the fact that everything is recyclable eased my mind a bit.

    My cat, Koa, immediately took to the food. He particularly liked the tuna pate recipe, which he devoured. I would probably say that out of all the recipes we tried, the tuna pate took the number one spot.

    And, of course, Koa loved the box as well. Making a little box fort helped him work up an appetite!

    Cat Person creates quality cat food from human-grade, quality ingredients. It’s designed to be both healthy and delicious. It is high in protein and low in carbohydrates, which is exactly what most cats need. Their wet foods are made almost entirely out of meat, with a few nutritional supplements thrown in. When you open one of their single-serve cups, it’s challenging to tell the food apart from canned tuna.

    Speaking of their cups: they are one of the best solutions to feeding cats that we’ve ever seen. They’re easy to open and recyclable.

    You can buy food by the pack or design a subscription-based meal plan for your feline. Unlike other subscription-based companies, you don’t have to sign up for a subscription to try their food. Therefore, you can easily try a few recipes and see if it’s a fitting food for your feline.
