    Happy and Healthy

    By on

    We LOVE this food. It’s one of the few that my picky kitties will eat, which was the first plus. Second plus, none of my kitties get sick from it, which was a huge problem with other brands we try. We usually mix a little wet food or bone broth in for more water, but they love it plain as well. Great product, few ingredients, and I’m a guessing a great taste since my kitties can’t get enough.

    I'm still not sure

    By on

    I decided to star giving this food to my 2 fur babies and it's still taking a little time for them to get used to it. But they do end up eating all. That's why as for now , I gave it 3 stars.

    Cats used to love it

    By on

    It took some time for my finicky cats to take to it, but once they did, the formula changed and now they won't touch it. 4 out of 4 cats vote NO! Even the cat that will eat anything! They liked the larger, darker kibble. Currently seeking out an alternative while being forced to revert to the quickly consumed, but less healthy friskies. Boo!

    Changes in kibble size and shape.

    By on

    The picture shown in the description above is the OLD kibble. Several months ago there was a change, to a smaller round kibble. The cats didn't like it. I wrote the company, and was assured that this was a mistake, and NOT a permanent change. Unfortunately, it now seems to be permanent. I forgot to cancel my most recent auto-ship, but when I finish (if ever) the current supply, I'll look for something else. I HATE looking for new cat food, and they don't get much dry (mostly goes to the ferals I feed), but I prefer to feed a quality food. Back to the hunt :(

    Decline in Quality

    By on

    Something seems to have happened in the last 6 months. One bad I ordered was a very bad batch (Chewy was great in getting it replaced) and the next bag still didn't look the same as it used to. It can as larger (awkwardly so) and darker food and my cat really hesitates to eat it.

    Bob loves his Canidae!

    By on

    Our cat Bob has grown up on Canidae cat food. This is absolutely the only food he will eat. We’ve tried samples of other premium brands, canned food, even our tuna. He is a happy, healthy 4 year old, very much loved dark orange tabby!

    Love at first bite

    By on

    My 7 year old cat has been suffering with IBS and after 6 months on canned RX food it was time to start him back on a little dry food. I purchased 5 different types of dry, none of which he would eat, the pieces were dog size or he wouldn't even try them. So I went on and found exactly what I was looking for. It was LOVE at 1st bite. He has had no issues with his IBS with this food either.

    My cats like this depending on the batch! Not something you want when you're spending alot of money. For the cost of this food, I expect it to be reliable in it's formulation. Some batches have larger, darker kibble than others. My cats prefer the small, lighter kibbles. They should put a clear window on the package so you can see what you're getting. Not sure why it would be so inconsistent, but I'm tired of wasting money.

    Chicken better than Salmon

    By on

    My bengal has been eating Canidae chicken for two years and loves it. But when I recently got the Salmon flavor to change things up, my bengal would not touch it. She would eat other salmon kibble but the smell and taste of the Canidae salmon might have been too much for my cat. She is a picky eater but loves the Canidae Chicken flavor. I have gone back to it and she is happy. She has a great coat and looks healthier after switching from Friskies and Fancy Feast.
