Choosing the right food for your cat can be a daunting task. What makes a good cat food? Whose reviews can you trust? Here at CatFoodDB, we generate our brand reviews using our own custom algorithm from the data provided straight from the manufacturer - the product ingredient lists and its published guaranteed analysis. You can find more details about how we do this here: CatFoodDB's Review Process.
Is FirstMate good for cats? Based on our analysis of 19 unique FirstMate cat food products, FirstMate is an average overall cat food brand when compared to other products in our database.
Of these 19 FirstMate products we reviewed:
Based on our analysis of 15 unique FirstMate wet (canned) cat food products, FirstMate is a below average wet cat food brand when compared to similar products in our database.
Based on our analysis of 4 FirstMate dry (kibble) cat food products, FirstMate is an average dry cat food brand when compared to similar products in our database. Note that dry foods will almost always rank lower than their wet food counterparts due to the higher carbohydrate content found in most dry pet food.
Kitten food is specifically designed to support growing cats - these products are formulated to contain more calories, protein, and fat than their adult food counterparts. Kitten food is designed to support a still-developing digestive system, and to support the kitten's active playful lifestyle!
Despite these differences, however, the same principles apply when evaluating kitten food as adult cat food. Kitten foods made with quality protein sources and without cheap fillers, and that are high in protein and low in carbohydrates, are a solid indicator of a kitten food's quality -- same as it is for adult cat food! CatFoodDB's review system, based on the products published guaranteed analysis and ingredient lists, is therefore also uniquely positioned to evaluate kitten food as well!
