    My cat and I are both happy with this food.

    By Chipper on Sep 16, 2020

    My cat will not drink. Not from a bowl, not from a fountain. I'm always looking for ways to get more water into her so her kidneys will stay healthy. Stews are good because they have a high water content, plus I add extra water. Previously my cat was eating a stew made by a different manufacturer, but My cat will not drink.

Stews are good because they have a high water content, plus I add extra water. Previously my cat was eating a stew made by a different manufacturer, but the quality was uneven, so I decided to switch brands. I am very picky about safety and ingredients, and chose to switch to Caru stew in part because it was recommended in the Truth About Pet Food website's annual list of trusted foods. My cat (a healthy 8-year-old) dove into the Caru Chicken Stew immediately and continues to eat it eagerly. It's true that, as others have written, the appearance of the food is a little odd and not exactly what I'd call a stew. It looks more like a thick baby food with a few chunks of chicken here and there. But that doesn't matter if your cat likes the food. Although the labeling on the box makes it sound like you can close it to store the food after opening, I don't see any way to reseal it. A box lasts me for four meals (supplemented with dry food), so I pour the contents into a small glass storage dish with a snap-on lid and refrigerate it. … more

    Sorry, but this is AWFUL

    By Georg on Sep 10, 2020

    I'm disappointed that I had to give this a star but no stars was not an option. The description of this product was so wonderful that I really thought this would be a good addition for my seven cats but not one of them would even attempt to eat it - they all walked away from it. After four separate I'm disappointed that I had to give this a star but no stars was not an option. The description of this product was so wonderful that I really thought this would be a good addition for my seven cats but not one of them would even attempt to eat it - they all walked away from it. After four separate attempts to get at least one of them to try it, I finally gave up. Even my nose wrinkled when I poured it out of the container, not because of the smell (which is non-existent) but because of its look. It is NOT stew. It's a cross between bumpy pablum and over-cooked oatmeal. It's been pureed so much that there are NO pieces of anything that could be called a vegetable. Don't even get me started on "where's the chicken". I don't even know what color to describe it. It's grey, no it's beige, no it's the palest of yellow or it's those three colors combined. CARU needs to correct the description of this product or drastically change the way they produce it. It's not at all as described. … more

    Finicky cat

    I gave my cat 1 tsp. of the chicken stew mixed with her fancy feast turkey wet food. She liked it, but when I tried to give her more, she turned her nose up at it. The healthier the food I give her, the more she leaves it and goes for the kibble, which I consider kitty junk food. Help.

    My cat did not like it .

    By on

    I'm giving this 3 stars not because it was bad food - however, my cat who is a very picky eater did not like this. From reading all the reviews I thought I had found something for my very picky cat. He likes lick able food, but did not like this at all. Was frustrated - however, on to something different and to try something else.

    not a flavor for my guys

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I had high hopes for this food. My guys like the salmon and turkey flavor, but not the chicken. It looks good,smells good, and i like the ingredients, my guys just will not eat it. I am giving it 3 stars, as i really like the ingredients and what i read about it, the quality. If your cats like a really soft or really wet pate type food yours might enjoy it. Just because my cats will not eat it does not mean yours will not.

    Only OK for us

    This food was an expensive attempt to get my picky boy to eat. Day 1 he loved it. After that, not so much. Even the baby who eats EVERYTHING sometimes walks away from it. I'm trying to weave it in since the ingredients are great, but I think there are other similar options they prefer.
