Naked Essentials™ Kibble

Chicken + Duck

Cats know pants are overrated, and that's why they love our Naked Essentials kibble. Grains? Fillers? Artificial anything? No way. More like real meat as the first ingredient and our Happy Tummeez Prebiotics + Probiotics to keep your cat feeling just right. Bonus? It's on shelves in grocery stores for your convenience, so you can stock up on human snacks and invite us over for a game of Cats Against Humanity.

Pretty Kitty

My kitty, Nicco, has been a consumer of your product for a while. Not all grain free dry cat foods are created equal. I purchased another brand in a moment of haste & wanting to get my shopping done without making another stop. The other product (by a celebrity) was inferior to yours, as our poor Nicco would come to find out & suffer for my poor choice. He had an allergic reaction from the other food. He broke out into scabs at the base of his tail, chewed, scratched & lost fur. I immediately bought your Essentials Chicken + Duck again and threw out the remainder of the other. Within a month, and adding a bit of organic coconut oil into his diet, the scabs began to heal, fur began to regrow, & he chewed & scratched less.

Thank you for making such a pure product. I will never make the mistake of purchasing another product again.

We will continue to buy your products as we believe that a healthy pet starts with good nutrition.

Rescued Kitty

I want to take the time to say "Thank you so very much". Your product has been one of the greatest things for my cat. Our cat "Jim" was adopted from our local Humane Society and come to find out Jim has a eating disorder (likes to eat) and he also has digestive issues with normal cat food.
We have tried so many brands to help him with the weight and with the digestive issues. We ended up staying with the food that caused him the less issues and adding fiber to it to help him to have less accidents. That still did not work great, it was a band aid.
I found your product at Kroger and thought okay I will try again. Within 2 days of eating your product his tummy was less upset and now that he is eating it full time he is not having any issues at all. Jim now has a normal belly (except it is still large).
Thank you so much for your great product and helping Jim.

Maine Coons + Domestic Black Cat

I just wanted to drop a happy note to you folks regarding the Naked Essentials Chicken & Duck dry and canned cat food (all flavors). My cats are elated, over the moon, impressed, happy, leaping for joy, etc. It has taken me almost 6 years (yes, you're reading that correctly) to find a diet they would eat and here's the big one... continue eating. Not eat for 1-2 days and walk away, but actually eat now for 32+ days! I finally got it right!! I have 2 pure bred Maine Coons & a small domestic black cat. Their coats sparkle like their personality, they're more energetic and no problems with digestion. You guys are the best! Love your website and facebook posts (adorbs). Hope you're feeling the love!
