The Definitive 2014 Kosher For Passover Cat Food List

Passover-500x334Next Monday begins the observation of Passover, an 8-day Spring  celebration of the freedom of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. Through certain rituals, modern day Jews have the ability to relive and experience the true freedom their ancestors gained.

From the evening of April 14 through the evening of April 22, in recognition of the unleavened bread that the Israelites ate when they left Egypt, Jews do not eat – or keep in their possession – any chametz, or  grains that can become chametz. This includes any food or drink that contains even a trace of wheat, barley, rye, oats, spelt or their derivatives.

Because cats are family members, sharing our homes and mealtimes, joining us in celebrations, and because Jews cannot be in possession of these grains during Passover, we’ve compiled this list of Passover-approved cat foods that are highly recommended for quality, healthfulness, and taste.

Please note. There are many other cat foods that do not contain grains in them. This is the only HEALTHY Kosher For Passover list. We have eliminated companies with a history of recalls or products that include corn – which although permitted in cat food on Passover – is actually bad for your cats.

There are other Passover-friendly cat foods available in addition to this list. Look for grain-free options or those with rice as the only grain. While corn is an acceptable grain to feed during Passover, it is proven to be an unhealthy ingredient for cats and should be avoided. The Passover-approved cat foods on this list would all make excellent choices for feeding your cat year round, too.

Don’t forget to find grain-free treats for your furriest family members, too! We love Cloud Star’s Grain Free Buddy Biscuits for Cats in three meaty flavors: Savory Turkey & Cheddar, Tender Chicken, and Tempting Tuna.

We wish all of our Jewish friends a Happy (and Kosher) Passover.

    First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had
    a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in
    getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!

      I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

      Ves, precisamente a eso me refería… aquí, hoy día me he enterado un mínimo porcentaje de esos horrores a través de una mini serie hispano-argentina “Vientos de Agua”… por eso te leo y siento mucho más lo que he visto novelado.Horrores de poder. Simplemente horrores que no dejan de suceder, van saltando de continente en continente, de época en época pero siempre late, vivo, desgraciadamente muy vivo.Un beso enorme.
