Rated 5 out of 5 by SheLer a great topping
When I first bought this product I followed directions, ,mixed in warm water, waited, and then gave it to my cat who "tolerated" it. The next time I sprinkled some dry on her food and she promptly gobbled it all up. Now she looks forward to this "seasoning" on every meal. I like the ingredients and the fact it is made in the USA/

by stumaster DO NOT tone down the smell!!
I opened this bag, took a sniff and knew this would gets all of my cat's attention. I normally buy Wellness Salmon and Fish meal as it is the only brand with a very rich salmon smell (Blue's Wilderness is a good food but didn't even come close). This dehydrated food is so handy. All of my eight foster kitties outside love it dry or made into a paste. My indoor Norwegian Forest cat is VERY finicky. I gave him the dry nugget first, he sniffed, licked then walked away. I made it into a paste and he's hooked. He rubs his body all over the house whining when I wake up and before I go to bed wanting more. He wants more of this fishy salmon paste. I am through the bag already. Had I known they would like it so much I would have purchased the chicken too. I am very happy with your formula. I am able to take a few kibbles mix it in with their wet food and make the outside feral cats Friskies palatable for them to actually finish that bland corn paste. It was getting expensive buying the little angels raw chicken breast, chicken livers and beef stew cubes to enhance their diets. This Stella and Chewys is going to be a money saver as it will stretch the dollars to go a little further.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cherylinda My cats love this
I was surprised how much my
cats love this. It does have a strong odor, but not much more that canned food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AliceinKittyland Freeze dried fishy goodness
My kittens gobble this up like they haven't been fed in days every time I feed them. They love it. All those omega 3s must be doing a great job on their fur and skin too because they look so healthy and shiny!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer too smelly
Although the quality of this product is really good, I cannot get my cats to eat it. They tried it once, took a few bites, and that was the last of it. I have tried mixing it with other fish food they are used to, but alas, they will not go near it.
I do think it needs to be toned down if that is possible. I say this because when I open the bag just the aroma sends my cats scurrying from my feet.
I am sure there are many cats that like it, I am disappointed that my 2 do not. They do like the chick flavor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by speechtchr My cat won't touch it!
I read a lot of reviews on this product before purchasing it for my cat. I have used Stella & Chewy's products for my dog and she loves them. I know they make quality products. Unfortunately, my finicky cat will not eat this food. When you add warm water, the fish smell is very strong. Not sure why he will not even try it, but he avoided the bowl of food like the plague. Luckily my dog likes it! Hope it's okay for me to feed her a tiny amount or use it for treats. Kind of disappointed my cat won't eat it. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by Abycat1 Cats Loved It!!
Yup! This food smells like very old fish but it's not on my plate. My cats are very finicky eaters and for that smelly reason, when I opened this package I thought they'd turn up their little noses at it.
I was wrong! Added some warm water, served it up and the cats cleaned the bowl. And, I mean cleaned the bowl! They about ran over me to get to this food!
My guys love the Stella & Chewy's Chicken cat food and now the fish,too. I must find out their opinion of the turkey cat food next!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ralphscats Smells worse than a dead fish
This food stinks!! I'm not talking the normally canned cat food smell, I'm talking "the fish has been dead for three days" smell. I have a stomach of steel, and I was having dry heaves after I opened this. All seven of my cats walked by it and wouldn't even taste it. I gave it one star because I believe raw is best, even though fish isn't. If you have a fish addict, this may help to transition him to something else if you mix it in with the new food because the smell is so strong.
