I tried this as a topper for wet food to begin. Then as rehydrated by itself. None of my cats liked this product! I was surprised as my friends cats like it.
For me it was an expensive trial.

Rated 3 out of 5 by draconismoi Have to get water ration perfect
At first I assumed my cats would hate this b/c it is a powder....but they liked it dry as a topper on wet food.
I get mixed results when I feed it to them by itself. I'm pretty sure it's a matter of getting the water ratio and temperature perfect. Too little/too cold and it hardens into a paste (which they won't eat).

by MonsieurTo Excellent food that needs time to adjust
Finally, out of the blue, my cat suddenly loves this food on its own after trying to smuggle, bury and place it in the middle not to be sniffed first since... January 2016! I started with not even a teaspoon. He would sniffed and walked away the first time because it smells different. I started all kind of tricks above, and mix it with his regular food, and he started to eat his food around with the part I hide HK being eaten last. At least he ate it. I increase the amount a little, and he still ate it. When I thought it was time to try it on its own a couple of months ago, I made a separate plate of tiny batch ... Nope, not the time yet! So I keep mixing it with his canned food. Then this month, he seemed to bored with his canned food (that I rotate each month with different kinds), he became fussy to eat his regular food, and I took a chance making him a small batch of HK, working carefully with the water mix not to be too soupy or too thick... And he licked clean his plate!!!!! Grace on its own! I was skeptic, and always make a small batch first, I don't want to throw away too much of good quality food. It has been more than a week now he is on Grace and I believe he is definitely converted! Now I have to hide, bury, and place his canned food in the middle.... Cats are very peculiar... They have their own minds and time! If your cat refuses to eat, don't give up! Mix it gradually and hopefully they will like it. I did not throw it away the box when I found my cat did not like it in the beginning, because it is dry food and won't go bad fast. It took me 5 months to convince mine, but the perseverence and patience paid off! P.S. I always mix Grace with the Bone Broth. It is such a healthy combination.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Gloria Cats won't even try it
I have a lot of respect for the "Honest" Company itself. But, I don't think cat food is a product they should be attempting to make and/or sell. I expected something my cats would at least taste and/or try. They wouldn't go near it. My first batch looked and smelled like green parsley water. My cats wanted nothing to do with it. The next batch, I decreased the water til I had a "Mush" .... but it was only a "mush" of what looked and smelled like green parsley. My cats won't go near it. They won't even taste it. After a couple hours, I threw it away.

by Elf7 Excellent value and extremely healthy
I love the Honest Kitchen products. I've been feeding Grace and Prowl to my cats since July of 2012 and they are doing great. This food is extremely healthy and easy to feed. It's also comparable in price to high quality kibbles out there meaning anyone who pays top dollar for kibble shouldn't be buying it when you can buy Honest Kitchen. Cats are very susceptible to UTIs and kibbles lack of water content is the culprit for that but with Honest Kitchen you can't go wrong! You portion out your powder add warm water and mix! It's making your own wet food without the high price of cans! I encourage anyone wanting the best for their cat to try this food! Excellent value, extrememly healthy, cheaper than any high quality cans and kibbles! I dont know why some previous reviewers say their cats hated this product because mine love it. Switching any kibble addict to a wet food is hard and you just have to keep trying!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cathy57 Good Stuff!
I have 3 indoor cats. One has seizures, one has allergies and he had bald spots here and there. Since starting Honest Kitchen cat food the one cat has not had a seizure and looks the best she ever has. The one with allergies, well his hair has filled in and he looks great! They were not sure of this food at first as it is so different then what they were used to. I put a sprinkle of their dry food over the top and they clean their bowl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CxxB Great product! My cats love it!
My cats love this stuff. I have a 16 year old cat and a 2 year old cat too. My 16 year old had stopped eating and I thought I would give this a try. She simply loves it and actually begs for me to give it to her throughout the day (even though I have dry food out for her or other canned food.) She has gained weight now and is on her way to being her healthy self. Not sure why she lost her appetite previously but this food saved me a trip to the vet (it might have been emotional...just added that 2 year old cat to the house!) Also, I appreciate the fact that the product doesn't smell gross like canned cat food. It smells good! Thanks Honest Kitchen. Getting myself on an autoship program today!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wildkarrde21 High quality, inexpensive healthy cat food
First, I will say that it can take some time to transition your cats to this food, especially if you are coming from dry. Some cats may never like it if they're extremely picky. Two of our cats took to it right away, one was a bit slower and the last one took to it after a month (ironic, since he is the overeater). I prepare all the cats portions in one bowl (it's easier to mix it in bigger batches) and use hot water. Make sure you wait the full 5 minutes for hydration so that it gets a thicker portion. I like that it has human grade ingredients, even if there are a few too many fruits/vegetables than I'd like. Cost wise it actually works out to less than canned foods per kcal (compared to various grain free canned brands like Wellness, Tiki, Evo, and others that I've tried). All I can recommend is to be patient when transitioning, but I think this food will be great for your cats in the long run.
