Catit Gold Fern

Air-dried cat food

Catit Gold Fern is air-dried cat food made in New Zealand using a gentle air-drying technique that allows for very high meat inclusion and retains all the nutrients of the raw ingredients.

The best cat food New Zealand has to offer


Catit Gold Fern is made in New Zealand, an island nation acknowledged worldwide for its high-quality foods and high food production standards. New Zealand’s farming industry is highly regulated and doesn’t allow the use of growth hormones, dangerous pesticides, or GMOs, ensuring our Gold Fern recipes are made with pure, high-quality ingredients and contain all the vital nutrients to keep your cat well-fed and healthy. As our ingredients are sustainably sourced, we help preserve the country’s fauna and flora.

1. Premium air-dried cat food with up to 95% pure meat


To create dry cat food, ingredients are cooked at very high temperatures, which breaks down some essential nutrients. Our air-dried cat food is prepared using a centuries-old air-drying technique, meaning proteins and other vital nutrients are well-preserved. Thanks to the gentle air-drying process, we are also able to include much more meat in our recipes, with levels reaching up to 95%.

The slow, two-stage drying process eliminates harmful bacteria, such as salmonella, and gives the Gold Fern flakes a chewable natural texture that looks like chopped beef jerky while providing a much higher moisture content than standard dry food.

Mimics a wild cat's whole-prey diet with high meat content

Like a wild cat’s whole-prey diet

Catit Gold Fern recipes were created to ensure your cat gets all the nutrients they would otherwise obtain from their whole-prey diet in the wild and have a meat inclusion of up to 95%. With real meat and protein-rich organ meats, like liver and gizzard, our air-dried cat food closely resembles what cats consume in nature.

2. Ethically sourced, high-quality ingredients from New Zealand


Cat food containing ethically sourced meat and fish, New Zealand green-lipped mussel and essential taurine

Ethically sourced prime meat

Our wild-caught mackerel, humanely raised grass-fed beef and lamb, and free-range chicken comes from ethically managed farms. Catit Gold Fern provides your cat with a high-quality source of protein, without using any rendered meals.

New Zealand green-lipped mussel

Catit Gold Fern recipes include New Zealand green-lipped mussel, a true superfood for cats. It naturally contains omega-3 fatty acids.

If cooked at high heat, these mussels would lose their nutritional value. As Catit Gold Fern is gently air-dried at low temperatures, the green-lipped mussels’ beneficial nutrients are preserved.

Essential taurine

Each Catit Gold Fern recipe contains a balanced amount of the essential amino acid taurine to help maintain your cat’s wellbeing.

NO grains, corn, wheat, soy, cheap fillers, or growth hormones

Cats have difficulty digesting carbohydrates. As these nutrients add little nutritional value to your cat’s health, Catit Gold Fern recipes are free of high-carb ingredients such as corn, soy, or potatoes. In addition, Gold Fern is completely free of cheap fillers, growth hormones, and glycerin.

3. Nutrient-dense dry cat food to enhance your cat’s diet


Feed Less, Give More™

As Catit Gold Fern is slowly air-dried, its ingredients shrink down in the process. Even so, their natural proteins, vitamins and minerals are preserved, creating a delicious dry food that is exceptionally dense in nutrients. Because of this, a cup of Gold Fern air-dried cat food is generally more nutritious compared to a cup of other dry cat food, meaning you can feed less, while giving more. Even by feeding just a small amount of Catit Gold Fern, you enhance your cat’s diet with pure, essential nutrients.

Small batch, great taste

Our Gold Fern recipes are air-dried in small batches of 350kg instead of being mass-produced as 40-tonne batches like standard dry food. All the ingredients are mixed and laid out on oven trays and cooked on low heat for a long period. Finally, the mixture is diced into smaller bite-sized pieces. Producing smaller batches of cat food helps guarantee the finest quality.

Ideal raw food alternative

The air-dried flakes are a great raw cat food alternative as they are equally nutritious. The only difference: Gold Fern is easier to serve than raw cat food. Compared to raw food, Catit Gold Fern is much less hassle and can be stored more easily for longer.
