Decided to try Merrick because it is family owned, the cats were throwing up on all Purina and Fromm is too expensive. Well after 3 days of NOT 1 cat wanting to eat the Merrick, they would start and then walk away or just smell and walk away. I had to go buy Nutrisource for them , which they are eating. The cats are in an enclosed sanctuary so it isn't like they could get food in the wild( occaisional mouse, bird, chipmunk) but nothing sustainable, they would rather starve than eat the Merrick Salmon or Chicken.

Perfect size for kitties, all three of my finicky eaters love this flavor. I went through several kinds before I found one the all would eat. I especially like the Velcro reseal on the bag, so easy!

My two beautiful Persians seem to like this. It's not my favorite brand but has incorporated some of their ingredients to make a tasty, healthy, food.
No by- products of course, no grains, and salmon is number one ingredient.

This is the first time I've ordered Merrick Purrfect Bistro Grain Free Real Salmon Recipe Dry Cat food, and my 2 cats love it. I have been feeding them Merrick's Chicken Dry Cat food, and thought I'd try the salmon. They love both flavors.

I consider both of our indoor cats to be picky eaters. It took trying many different kinds and brands to find one they both would eat, and would be healthy for them as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jillpics I notice my cats' fur becomes very shiny when fed this food
I've had cats for 30 years, both my own and many, many rescue animals (56 cats rescued in the last 4 years). I work with rescue groups in NYC, and we all trade information about nutrition and other cat related issues. I've spent a great deal of time trying to find highly nutritious food at a reasonable price. One thing I noticed about Purrfect Bistro, is that my cats seem to become very sleek after eating it for a few weeks. I like the fact that real meat is the first ingredient, and they don't use useless, non-nutritional things like brewers rice, or corn, which makes animals fat. At one point, I switched to a highly rated bargain brand, and my cats all developed diarrhea, so what I saved on food I ended up spending on litter. Luckily, I found that I could get very good prices on Chewy.com, and free delivery. that saves me a lot of time, money, and heavy lifting.

I usually buy a couple different brands, but I wanted to give this one a try. My cats love it! With that thought I would recommend this brand for being one of the better smelling cat foods out there with fish as the main ingredient. My cats took right to it. The only thing I was surprised about is that the cat food itself is very tiny. When I opened the bag after it was delivered it looked like maybe from shipping it must have broken down a lot of the food into crumbs. So for me it is that I am half happy with it, but yet, not so happy with it's combination of too many crumbs ( a waste of food) and too tiny of a cat food to last long. I might try it one more time but if it comes delivered in the same condition as the current bag that I have did than I'll just go back to my usual brands of cat food that do not break down in the bag and are bigger in size.
