Merrick Purrfect Bistro Grain-Free Classic Duck Pate Canned Cat Food
Grain Free Wet Food - Great for Cats & Kittens
My Siamese Male Cat turned 19-yrs. on Mar. 13, 2014. 2-yrs. ago he was diagnosed with the beginning stages of Renal Failure. I DID NOT switch to Vet Rx recommendation; rather, I selected Merrick Grain Free Wet Food and mix with Distilled Water and provide Distilled Water for drinking water and my Siamese Cat Romeo is prancing around like a Kitten at 19-yrs. of age.

If your cat likes pate, you should try this brand
Merrick produces a great food. Unfortunately, until these Purrfect Bistro foods were available from Chewy, I had not found a Merrick food that my cats really liked. I love their ingredients and their integrity as a company, so I was thrilled when my cats had a positive reaction to this pate. If you have a cat that likes the texture of a pate, you should try these. They have tried the Chicken, Duck, and Surf and Turf and they all are eaten up. There is a little gravy in the can around the pate. Normally, my cats would lap up the gravy and leave most of the pate, but not with these varieties - they eat it all up.

Good, but I miss its forefather...
This appears to be Merrick's rebrand of the B.G. line of grain-free cat food, which was my cat's favorite brand of wet cat food. The formula change to Purrfect Bistro doesn't seem to have affected her, which is good, since store-brand stuff makes her vomit. She does like the duck flavor, too.
I'm just a little disappointed that the "96%" label for guaranteed meat content, which was prominently displayed on Merrick's previous grain-free cans, has now disappeared...meaning there's now less meat (visible difference in the pate texture for sure).
As long as my cat doesn't vomit, then I have no other complaints. It's still a healthier brand than any cheap store brand, and more economical than many other grain-free brands. I may just start supplementing the meat content with chicken from the grocery store.

I have 2 very finicky cats. It's not been easy to make the switch to a healthy canned diet. It's taken some time.
This brand and flavor both of my cats eat. I did need to mix it with a little bit of a cheaper unhealthy brand in the beginning. After awhile using less and less my cats both eay strictly Merricky.
As I said above my cats love this flavor. Chicken Ala King is the second choice.
I highly recommend using Chewy for your pet care needs. The prices are good. Free shipping when you purchase over $49.00. I purchase 2 cases of food plus a few bags of treats to get the free shipping. I'm very pleased that I've found chew.com.

The only food my baby will eat
I have a 12 year old cat just diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease. He needed a grain free novel protein canned food. I tried 15 different flavors and companies. This is the only one Dusty will eat regularly. He loves it. I just wish it didn't have chicken in it but without it maybe he would reject it. So far it is the best quality, most palatable food I can find. I would definitely recommend it.

Excellent Quality Cat Food
My cat was near death, this food turned her around. It's healthy & she loves it

Cats loved it, however...
My cats loved the taste but it looks like there is grease floating on top when you open the can. I worry this might upset their digestive system. I went with the chicken pÃ¢tÃ©, which does not have the grease floating on the top. I know duck might be on the greasy side and chicken is better and more mild for their stomachs.

Great Food Choice
My cats love Merrick food and I am very happy with the ingredients and quality of the product. I have fussy animals, so when they endorse something I know it's good.
