    Sadly my cat refused it

    By on

    I have a 14 1/2 year old Bengal with IBD that evolved into lymphoma. I have tried every food out there, wet food, dry food, the intestinal diets, the hydrolyzed proteins and the novel proteins (duck, rabbit, venison). When I called Chewy they suggested the Blue Buffalo Alligator, definitely something different! I was truly hopeful and will spare you the two weeks of antics trying to slip this into his diet but he absolutely refuses it. I'm confused by some of the other reviews, one had said goopy so I figured good, it must have a gravy. Not at all, it is a pale colored homogeneous firm pate cooked in the can. There is no gravy, aspic or liquid of any kind. You have to scoop it out of the can I have a 14 1/2 year old Bengal with IBD that evolved into lymphoma.

If you rub some between your fingers it's a smooth matrix with what feels like salt in it (not). To me it doesn't have much of a smell at all but he sure picked up on it. These companies have to start offering sample packs for us folks spending hundreds to thousands on sick cats, desperately trying to find the food they will eat. … more

    Non Allergenic food

    My cat likes the food and has become less allergic as she continues to eat only this. A bit on the pricey side but Midnight is worth it.....thanks

    Cat loved it!

    By on

    I was hesitant to buy this based on the reviews, but it has been prescribed for my 8 1/2-year-old female cat, so I gave it a try. She loved it! She's normally a very picky eater and grazes her food, but she ate all of this at once. She really likes it. Yay!

    My cats won’t eat it!

    By on

    I have a cat with severe allergies, so my vet recommended I try this food. My cats won’t eat it, they would rather starve. This food is very expensive and I hate to waste it, so I tried feeding it to my 7 outside cats, they won’t eat it either!!! So, I have 18 cans of food that none of my cats will eat! If you can buy a few cans to try first, I would recommend that, since $76 for 24 cans is an investment.

    Gets the Job Done

    By on

    I think anyone looking to buy alligator is like me, their cat has food sensitivities to fish, chicken, beef, and you're looking for a different protein. This is certainly different. The good news is my cat will eat it, but she is definitely not crazy about it. Strange texture, goopy, sticks together. I'm surprised my cat will eat it at all. If you're looking for something different for your cat that does not have food sensitivities, I would not recommend this. But for a desperate cat owner looking for a different protein, you could try this, even at the very high price.

    Cats not Fans

    By on

    Blue Buffalo doesn't mess around and I'm sure this is high quality stuff, so I decided to take the plunge on the price. Unfortunately neither of my cats are very big fans of this. They'll eat it, but it's with definite reluctance.
