It all started with a childhood cat named after the iconic cat-with-attitude from Homeward Bound.
Sassie, and the ragtag bunch that followed, taught siblings Brett and Nikki some of life's most important lessons.
How to stay curious and playful. Unconditional love and responsibility. And that a good snuggle can fix anything.
These days, their lives are brightened by their cats Molly, Kiki and Columbus. But just a few years ago, they learned how badly their health was being neglected by mainstream cat food.
So they decided to shake up the industry and put cats and their people first.
They wanted to team up with someone exceptional. Someone who understood exactly what they were striving for. So they got on a flight to Gainesville, Florida.
Dr. Justin Shmalberg is a world-leading Board-Certified Veterinary Nutritionist®. From Gainesville, he directs the largest academic integrative veterinary medicine program in the United States.
Dr. Justin formulates every KatKin meal to ensure every meal is made with the fresh, whole ingredients that our cats need to thrive. Dr. Justin is one of the biggest advocates for Fresh meals, which is exactly how he feeds his own three cats!
To create the food cats deserved Brett and Nikki realised they’d have to make it themselves. Having their very own KatKin Kitchen based in London makes sure that every meal is handmade, packed and delivered to the highest standards.
They might not spend their free time watching Homeward Bound on loop anymore, but they’ve made it their mission to share their love of cats with the world – and give every single one their best nine lives, without compromise.
Our prices vary as our Fresh meal plans are personalised to meet each cat's individual daily calorie and nutritional needs. Your cat’s personalised price will be calculated for you during sign-up and shown to you before checkout.
We are currently able to deliver to England, Scotland and Wales, excluding the Scottish Highlands and Islands.
Our fresh meals need to be stored in the freezer, where they'll stay fresh for up to six months. We recommend keeping 5 pouches in the fridge ready to be fed to your cat, and replacing them one at a time as you go.
We’ve chosen not to blast them at extremely hot temperatures to make them shelf stable for years, and instead we gently steam cook our meals which are then frozen fresh to preserve their natural nutrition. You can read more of our storage advice here.
Your KatKin meal plan is 100% flexible. You can pause, cancel, or delay your deliveries at any time and you will never be hit with a surprise charge thanks to our monthly billing reminders.
Our Fresh meals are suitable for kittens from weaning. Our 100% real meat content is great for growing muscles and because all our meals are gently steam-cooked, they are easy to digest and good for young stomachs as well.
