Description

Reduce your cat's pawprint

We all know that cats are carnivores, but did you know that traditional meat production emits more carbon than cars do? With almost 500 million cats on Earth, we can make a real difference for our environment, simply by substituting the meat protein in their food and treats.

Up to 97% sustainable protein

Insect protein is a complete, clean and sustainable alternative to meat protein!

Catit Nuna treats are part of our insect protein-based Catit Nuna food range. These premium cat treats are the perfect alternative to unsustainable meat-based treats. Easily digestible and extremely palatable, this revolutionary treat is loved by cats and offers an opportunity for us cat lovers to make a difference.

Our recipes contain nutritious and clean insect larvae that are rich in healthy protein, and set a new standard in premium cat treats.

Supremely delicious and perfectly balanced

In many cultures worldwide, insects are on the main menu because they’re so delicious, nutritious and sustainable! Catit Nuna treats include whole Hermetia Illucens grubs, a true superfood bursting with protein, mixed in with loads of healthy ingredients!

Premium nutrition

Feeding Catit Nuna treats is a smart, healthy choice. Hermetia Illucens larvae provide dietary benefits that far excel those found in beef and chicken.

Nuna - no antibiotics or growth hormones

No antibiotics or growth hormones

Catit Nuna treats are 100% free of antibiotics and growth hormones, and our chickens are raised in vet-approved facilities.

Zero waste, all goodness

Beef and chicken have lots of inedible parts that go to waste during food production. These leftovers end up in landfills where they create toxic greenhouse gases. In contrast, our Catit Nuna recipes are made with whole, delicious grubs!

Sustainably sourced fish

Studies have shown that the world’s oceans could be virtually emptied of fish in 30 years’ time. To help preserve the ecosystems of the sea, Catit Nuna recipes only include sustainably sourced, MSC-certified herring.

Taste test winner!

Each variety of Catit Nuna treats is whisker-licking good. So much so, that our jury of taster cats was unanimous – Catit Nuna treats are YUMMMM!

Recyclable bag

Unlike most treat packagings, Catit Nuna bags are made of only low-density polyethylene (LDPE), and can be recycled into other products.

Easy transition to a sustainable diet

Catit Nuna treats are a good first step to feeding your cat a more sustainable diet. Cats can be finicky and habitual about their food. As Catit Nuna treats come in small pouches, they are a great way to get familiar with the Catit Nuna range and start feeding more responsibly and sustainably!

Little grubs, big benefits!

Cats regularly seek out insects as part of their natural diet, giving chase and enjoying the spoils of the hunt afterward. Little do our feline friends know, just how beneficial insects are!

Superfood insects

Catit Nuna is made with larvae of the Hermetia Illucens fly, which is known worldwide as a beneficial insect with great nutritional properties. They offer an excellent amino acid profile, are high in protein, low in carbs and easy to digest!

Pure sustenance

Our insects are dried and ground up into a very fine, nutritious flour before they’re mixed in with the other ingredients. With Catit Nuna, you can give your cat the pure sustenance of whole insects, without ever finding a single insect in the bag!

Sustainable & clean

Our grubs are sustainably raised in North America and Europe, under clean and controlled circumstances. Did you know that in the adult phase, the Hermetia Illucens fly does not even have an oral cavity, only very primitive mouthparts that they use to absorb water and nectar? These insects are super clean and not a vector for diseases.

Nuna - saving natural resources - Illustration

Saving natural resources

Catit Nuna grubs are true masters at recycling – they only feed on unconsumed human-grade fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste. This saves tons of natural resources, including land and water that would otherwise go into producing animal feed!

How many natural resources are used to produce 10kg of protein?

Saving land

Insect farms are stacked vertically, saving a vast amount of arable land.

Conserving water

It takes a ton of water to grow feed for livestock, while our grubs hardly use any!

Low carbon emission

Rearing insects produces far less CO2 than other protein sources.

Upcycling resources

For every kilogram of Catit Nuna food, our grubs ate and recovered about 160 kg of unused cereals, fruits and vegetables.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

ABOUT CATIT NUNA INSECTS

Do Catit Nuna treats include whole insects? And will I find insects in the pouch?
We use whole grubs to guarantee your cat is getting the complete nutritional package. However, our grubs are carefully dried and ground into a fine nutritious flour before being mixed into our recipe. This means that Catit Nuna treats look just like regular treats, with the power of whole grubs inside! So you will never find a single insect inside the bag.

How are the insects farmed?
The insect facility incorporates sustainable, vertical farming techniques to maximize the amount of nutrients produced in one space. This leaves more arable land to grow food for people. Additionally, no water is required, as all the water the insects need comes from the recycled fruits and vegetables in their diet.

The insects are sustainably produced, but what about the food they eat?
Over 30% of the world’s food production is wasted, mostly sent to landfills creating toxic greenhouse gases that are harmful to our environment. Hermetia Illucens larvae provide a valuable solution to this global problem, as they naturally upcycle nutrients from organic matter. The insect facility uses traceable, recycled food including fruits, vegetables and cereals to feed the insects. This environmentally responsible approach reduces the volume in landfills, while delivering high-quality nutrients for Catit Nuna.

The mealworms used in our Insect Protein Medley treats feed on natural ingredients from fully traceable and contaminant-free cereal-based by-products, such as wheat bran. The insect facility sources feedstock through local suppliers where possible, and enforces human standards for insect rearing. Every insect is processed with zero waste and low ecological impact.

Some insects are known to carry diseases, should I be worried?
There is absolutely no need to worry! Our Hermetia Illucens grubs are sustainably raised in Canada, the USA and Europe, under clean and controlled circumstances. And though we only use larvae, even the adult flies are unable to transmit disease, as they have no oral cavity! The adults survive solely on reserves that they built up in earlier stages, and can only absorb water and nectar with their mouthparts. In conclusion, Catit Nuna grubs are super clean and not at all a vector for disease.

The mealworms used in our Insect Protein Medley treats are grown under controlled, optimal conditions in Europe, and feed on fully traceable, contaminant-free natural ingredients. The mealworms are steamed and sterilized during processing, resulting in clean and nutritious protein.

FEEDING

How much Catit Nuna treats can I feed my cat?
We suggest feeding up to 10 treats per day for an average size indoor cat.

ABOUT CATIT NUNA TREATS

Why choose low-carb cat treats like Catit Nuna?
Diets that include large amounts of grain, rice and corn tend to be high in carbohydrates. Cats are obligate carnivores, and high levels of carbs can cause surges in blood sugar, which may lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. Large amounts of carbs also cause stress to the liver and kidneys, and could lead to sensitivities and even allergies. Catit Nuna is low-carb since it is completely free of wheat, soy and corn. Catit Nuna treats are high in protein to help keep your cat in shape.

Why is protein so important in cat food or treats?
Cats are obligate carnivores that physically need protein to stay happy and healthy. Their bodies break down protein into amino acids, which is needed to build muscle cells and enzymes. Catit Nuna includes high-quality and easily digestible whole insect protein and hydrolyzed yeast protein, topped with a small amount of animal protein – so your cat gets all the nutrients they need to thrive.

Catit Nuna treats include millet. What is that exactly?
Millet is an ancient, gluten-free grain that is lower in carbohydrates and higher in proteins and fiber than other grains commonly used in pet food, such as wheat or corn. Millet has a low glycemic index, so it helps stabilize your cat’s blood sugar level and makes them feel satiated for longer. Due to millet’s high antioxidant content, it is also a true super food for your cat.

Are Catit Nuna treats more easily digestible than other kibble, and how can I tell the difference in my cat?
Inferior cat treats include large amounts of grain, rice and corn, which are all very hard for cats to digest and metabolize as those ingredients contain tons of carbohydrates. This can cause flatulence, bloating and diarrhea in cats. As we care a lot for your cat’s wellbeing, Catit Nuna treats are 100% free of corn, wheat and rice. Our mission is to keep your cat happy and healthy, which can only be achieved with the very best ingredients.

What is yeast, and why is it so special?
Yeasts are microorganisms, naturally rich in protein and fibers, that have been used in food processing for centuries (beer, bread, etc.). Hydrolyzing yeast boosts all natural benefits by making the yeast more easily digestible. Hydrolyzed yeast protein has an amino acid profile similar to that of common animal protein, plus a better palatability and digestibility than meat proteins. In addition, it acidifies cat urine, which could help prevent urinary tract problems in your cat.

Are Catit Nuna treats approved by pet food nutritionists?
Absolutely! The composition of Catit Nuna was determined with great care by specialized cat nutritionists.

Are Catit Nuna treats suited for cats with allergies, diabetes, or urinary tract problems?
If your cat has a medical condition, always consult your veterinarian or cat nutritionist before changing their diet, to ensure that you make the best choice for your cat.
