SOUPS for cats can cost ten times as much as versions for humans — but do taste better.
A Sun on Sunday test found one chicken and veg broth for moggies has up to 25 times more meat.
A quarter of Gourmet Crystal Chicken & Vegetable Soup for cats, by Nestle-owned Purina, is meat while soups for humans we tried contained between just one and 11 per cent chicken.
Food expert Martin Isark, founder of the Can I Eat It? app, carried out a taste test along with cats Molly and Milly.
The cat soup costs 90p for a 40g packet — or £22.50 a kilo.
Waitrose’s Chicken & Vegetable Broth, with six per cent chicken, is £2.50 for 600g, or £4.17 a kilo.

A question of taste
THE Purina soup contains 25 per cent chicken, 4.6 per cent vegetables, fish and derivatives.
Human verdict: Great quality meat but the fish and chicken taste combo is odd, 7/10.
Cats’ verdict: Purrfect, 10/10.
