The trend toward locally-sourced food, made from high quality, humanely-raised ingredients isn’t limited to those who eat with a knife and fork. From Scratch is filling bowls with small-batch cat food, free of preservatives, additives and fillers, made from ingredients you use in your own dinner. The Brooklyn-based company was born when one of the founders rescued a kitten on the Lower East Side and decided to feed her with the same farm-to-table ethos he had adopted for his own diet.They whip up two flavors of cat food, Turkey Terrine and Fish Paté, and run an online Cat Boutique, with cool, kitty-oriented items for felines and the humans who love them. Here are a few great gifts, From Scratch.
Food Delivery–Choose from Turkey Terrine or Fish Paté, either overnight shipped or delivered locally. Made from ingredients like pastured eggs, turkey thighs, extra virgin olive oil and responsibly-caught fish, it is a nutritionally balanced meal from kittens to adults. They cook so you don’t have to.
Pet Portraits–Provide Katy Smail, an artist and illustrator, with a photo of your furry friend and she will create a unique portrait in color or black and white. The purrrfect gift for the cat lover with everything.
Leather Cat Carrier–If your cat only travels in style, then you’ve finally found the cat carrier you need. This American-made leather bag with ventilation holes on each end could practically double as a chic handbag.
It’s Meow or Never Tote–You don’t even need to be a cat lover to want to carry this clever tote, designed by Bueno and made in the U.S. Big enough to serve as an extra large stocking or to just carry all your necessities.
