Rated 1 out of 5 by Globalnomad My cats meow when I serve this because they are hungry and won't eat it
My 2 rescue cats are not picky and will happily eat everything I serve them (one loves corn on the cob- that's how flexible they are!)... but NOT this food. I put it down in the bowls, they stare at me in disbelief, won't touch it, and continue their incessant feed-us-mewings. Only if I cover it in other food at a ratio 3x other foods to 1x Cats' meow will they eat it. I'm sorry I didn't read the review. I don't know what is in this, but they really really hate it. They love all the other Dave's flavors that they've tried, but not this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ChrisE The only Dave's that they don't like. Read Below
This is made and also sold by Evanger's as Chicken Lickin' and even cheaper. The other Dave's stuff, is made elsewhere. I would think Dave might want to get rid of this line.
My not so finicky cats will eat this if forced too. But they'll eat half of this stuff at most and really give me the stink eye for the rest of the day.
Too bad, they will INHALE the other Dave's Cat Food that I've bought (haven't tried any "fish" ones though).

My Cats are not crazy about this particular food.
They barely touch it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BaxterPippa Great ingredients; cats aren't sure, though.
In my search to find more economic ways to feed my cats a healthy, wet diet, Dave's seemed like a great option. Awesome contents, no fillers or questionable ingredients, and it came in a larger can that saves money over time. My cats, like some other reviewers', ended up not really liking the food, however. I was able to get them to finish the first can by mixing it with other brands, but it didn't stand on its own.
I'm still giving it four stars because it's great in terms of ingredients and cost. I would recommend cat owners try this brand before writing it off, because all cats are different and some will like it more than others! If not, you can always donate it to a shelter and it won't go to waste! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lynnala Cats like it okay
I've only tried this one flavor with my cats and they like it okay but not great. They leave a lot on their plates. Also, the food is very thick and solid, which means you are getting a good deal because you are not paying for a lot of liquid. However, I mix water into it because it is rather dry. I use it as a backup for a raw food diet. Overall it seems like a good, economical choice for a grain-free canned food.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sandwichman Quality, but cats won't touch it.
When you open up the can there is no harsh smell and looks to be of a higher quality pate and neither of my cats will touch it. They both stick their noses up at it and my cats are not picky eaters. This is first food I've thrown at them they will not eat. With that being said, all the rest of the Pate food from Dave's is great! My cats love all the other flavors and go crazy when opening up the can.
I can't recommend this food due to the fact that there must be something specific to the food that turns cats off to it. If you have a picky eater, do not buy this flavor. Any of Dave's other flavors should be sufficient.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dustyme Six Cats Didn't Like It
We have six cats of various ages and this flavor is the least liked of Dave's that we've tried so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Daisybd Not palatable!
I have 4 cats. They are far from finicky and typically vie for the soft food, never looking up while eating it. Well, that was until I put this food in front of them. Not one would touch it. Literally they all looked up at me as if to say, "is this a joke?" I purchased 2 cases of this food without trying it out first. Chewy's fabulous customer service refunded me for one case. I'm extremely grateful considering feeding 4 cats is not cheap. The food seems to be dry. Smells bad and the texture is odd. All I need to say is that I will never buy this item from Dave's again. My cats have spoken!
