A Look at Tiki Cat Phosphorus Levels

A Look at Tiki Cat Phosphorus Levels

If you are the parent of a cat that has special restrictions to their diet you are already familiar with the struggle of getting nutritional facts from manufactures. We have two cats of our own with kidney disease which has made getting phosphorus levels from an essential task for any new food we are thinking of trying.

Thankfully Tiki Pets was kind enough to reach back with the information on their food for us. The Velvet Mousse lineup has been a huge win for my boy he loves the flavor and texture of it. It’s not the lowest phosphorus option but we always say an eating cat is the most important thing around here. If you want to skip reading below the lowest phosphorous option Tiki Cat offers is from the Luau line, Koolina Luau Chicken with Egg, at 0.89% phosphorus on a dry matter basis . Here is a look at the complete list of Tiki Cat Phosphorus Levels.

Tiki Cat Phosphorus Listed on a Dry Matter Basis

Updated from July, 2022

Velvet Mousse

This line is sold in pouches and is known for being high-protein, grain-free mousse made with tender chicken or fish. I love using these as a sneaky way to get my guy to eat liquid medications he needs. It’s pungent so it’s easy to hide his medicine in without him ever knowing. The consistency is a smooth and almost soup like. No chunks are in this line, making it the perfect option if your cat hates that.

Tiki Cat Raw Food

You hear us talk about raw food a lot around here. Cats are obligate carnivores and require meat to survive. Tiki Cat offers a pre-made raw food that comes frozen. This line gives cats the uncooked, prey-like diet they crave in a safe, complete and balanced meal. It is pricey but if you don’t have the time to make your own or can’t handle chicken livers this is a wonderful alternative.

My cat 1st was diagnosed with Diabeties 2/22 . We bought the food but it only comes in liver flavor, the wet food pate' was gritty liver & he would not eat it so I stopped both.... Then a yr later my vet said he has Kidney diease stage one 3/23... Well I bought the food again Hills K/D salmon & the some ocean white fish dry.. He loved it, BUT now he has mushy poops that are making his bottom really sore & its uncontrolable.. I now have another problem!! ,. I took him off it gave him pumpkin & his poop was getting less.. well I thought I had tossed all the foods that gave him mushy poops that stick to him & the cat litter to his bottom again.. there was mabe a 1/4 cup mixed with a cup+ of regular hills dry foods. I had forgot about his dry food & kept it topped off with the plain Hills , what was left in the bottom gave him back the problem again . He is a 15.5 yrs old siemise mix.. a big boy of 19.7 lbs . Im getting to the point I dont know if I trust my Vets food choices for him .. he's on insulin & looks better than he did last yr, when 1st diagnosed & started off at 3.0 down to .5 hes back up to a 1.0 dose . Do vets always recommend high dollar special foods & get a kick back from them like Ive read? My cat had always been on Friskies like all my cats . This is the 1st one to have all these problems yet he looks great. & Was playfull till this past week plus. I have him now on Tiki cat Velvet mousse mackeral in broth & Tuna for the past few months & he loves it & had no poop problems... Is that a good wet food for his Kidneys? I have not tried the meds cause it stresses him out when I force pills or try to hide it in his food yet what options do I have left? Im forking out $1000 of dollars on things that dont work.. He will only eat lickable foods cause he has only 3 jaw teeth on one side & his 4 canines left so its has to be a lickable food. He hates everything except certain fish flavors . He is my world & I worried Im gonna loose him faster than I expected becouse of all this yoyo food diets. Again is the Tiki cat Velvet Mousse & tuna/mackeral in broth a good choice since he cant eat the K/D foods? Also the pumpkin Im giving him is Weruva Patch up. Only the plain pumpkin so far . HELP ME I DONT WANT HIM TO DIE & LOOKS SO HEALTHY.

I am not a vet I can't give you any medical advice or even know for sure what will work for your cat. After having two with CKD and one with asthma I can say every cat is different and nothing works for all of them. If your cat has CKD I would try to get him off that flavor of velvet mousse. Did you try the chicken and egg flavor? You want to at least find something he like that's under 1% phosphorus on a DMB. If he loves tuna flavors we have a similar issue and had a lot of luck with Weruva OMG BFF QT Patootie and Love Munchkin they aren't as low as some of the all chicken flavors but under that 1% goal.

Also there has been nothing more effective in treating my CKD cats that hydration. My girl who we were able to get 100% off of kibble has now lived twice as long as our cat who was had to hybrid feed kibble/wet food. Also if your up for it I recommend going down the rabbit whole of looking into making your own raw food, that is 100% a win with all 6 of my cats.

Thank you so much for your work on this blog!

My Bea was just diagnosed with early-stage kidney failure, and really is not liking the RX diet. So I'm looking for acceptable choices. May I ask where you got these phosphorus numbers? I have a nutrition spreadsheet from, but it doesn't include a lot of the ones you list here. If you could let me know your source for our further reading, it'll be so appreciated.

Thank you again - a LOT.

I just contact the manufacturer and ask for their numbers, foods formulas can change at any time I highly recommend reaching out to the manufacturer yourself and getting numbers if you have concerns.

This is so helpful thank you! Do you happen to know if there's a difference between the luau and the luau pate varieties? I've been feeding my cat the luau chicken & egg for awhile now, but I accidently bought the pate last time and she seems to enjoy it more. The ingredients are almost identical, but the protein and calorie analysis is slightly different so I am very curious about the phosphorous.

What about tiki cat silver? I would really like to know!

Robin Griffin

Tuesday 5th of July 2022

I just sent in a request to get the numbers, I should hear back from them this week.

How big are the cans? 2.8, 3 oz, or 5.5 oz, or 6 oz

Robin Griffin

The can size won't change the phosphorus since it's a percentage. Or were you asking for another reason?
