World’s Most Expensive Cat Food Launched in UK
Still trying to find that special food your finicky feline may just enjoy? If it’s in your budget, you may want to check out the world’s most expensive cat food (so far) retails at £249.99 for a 4.5 pound bag. In US dollars, that breaks out to just about $312 per bag or around $70 per pound.
Assuming you are feeding just three of these bags a month, you’re looking at a food bill of nearly $11,000 per year to cater to your cat. So what’s in this expensive cat food?
To begin with, it’s designed for “All Life Stages” and made from natural human-grade raw materials. It contains bio-active herbs and is grain-free. But the actual hypo-allergenic, holistic ingredients are the true selling point.
Here’s a sneak peak at the ingredients:
Arenkha caviar, line-caught Scottish Salmon, hand-caught Norfolk lobster, locally-sourced Devon crab, Organic Asparagus, Quinoa, and Saffron for that “extra touch of luxury and refinement”.
“[It’s] for those few insanely rich pet owners to whom money is no object,” Simon Booth, co-founder and managing director of Green Pantry told the Daily Mail. He goes on to name several celebrities and CEOs that fit British Banquet’s target demographic.
The food is not available online since it’s made to order, for the most elite of customers. If you’re interested in purchasing, you’ll need to contact the British concierge at Green Pantry’s. We’re hoping it may even come with an English butler at that price.[note style=”5″ type=”warning” icon=”yes”]Note: Before you run out to pick up this expensive food, talk to your veterinarian. It appears to us to be a very rich food and best avoided for the majority of cats! But, as an occasional treat, we think any feline would enjoy a taste test.[/note]
Fortunately, the manufacturer (UK based Green Pantry) also offer plenty of other high-quality products that are a bit more reasonably priced for those of us who can’t afford to take a second mortgage to keep our cats happy.
