Rated 1 out of 5 by SilverCrow A good try but a miss.
My cats will eat anything, usually. I wanted to love this, they wanted to love this but it didn't happen. First, once I did the math, there are WAY too many starches and veggies in this food for cats, second, my cats hate it and would rather not eat for an entire day than take another bite of this food. They ate it the first night, but I could see them not totally happy once they started eating it. Next day, would take a bite, two months later, still won't touch it again. My cats are on a raw diet supplemented with other brands of dehydrated or freeze dried food, they LOVE them all and the ingredients are MUCH better. Love the Honest Company, don't love or even like this food. Have donated the rest to a local shelter, where the cats won't eat it either.

This is the best commercial in my opinion.Dehydrsted raw is better than any other, unless it is fresh raw. In that category,
there is none other that I would trust other than Darwin's.

The people at Honest Kitchen are wonderful to do business with. I have 8 indoor cats and 6 feral cats who eat here. I tried to purchase 8 samples and was told you can only purchase 1 sample. The lady at Honest Kitchen sent me a coupon to purchase a 2 lb box. This food has very excellent ingredients but is very unappetizing to the cats.
I have been trying to get the cats to eat it ever since. They still try to bury it. Next step, will try mixing it with broth.
The stuff when mixed was a putrid looking green soup. Tried to use less water - they still try to bury it. The picture used in their add is an extremely misleading representation of their actual product. Picture shows an appetizing bowl with vegetables and bits of meat - not a mass of vomit like goo. Which by the way does not smell like parsley - it smells like dry food with water added.
I know this would be a healthier food but can not get my cats to even taste it/

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 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.

We recently switched our two cats to an all wet food diet. One throws up every time he eats chicken-based foods and we didn't want to feed them fish, so our choices were pretty limited. We mix this with Wellness Core Turkey and Duck (about 50/50) and it's working out well so far. They don't love it on its own, but I suspect they would eat it begrudgingly if it were the only thing we offered.
The texture is a bit weird and the time they suggest for re-hydration isn't nearly enough. I usually mix up a batch and leave it in the refrigerator overnight, which makes it more of a normal cat food consistency. They seem to like it better that way.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. I feel good about the ingredients, it's reasonably priced, and it seems to be healthy enough. I didn't want to feed them the Wellness exclusively and Grace has worked great as a complement.

My two cats are the least pickiest eaters I've ever seen but they would not eat this and I don't blame them. When mixed with water it becomes green soup. I tried it again with less water and then it became green paste. It looked nasty. I will definitely not be getting this again and would not recommend it to any other cat either.

One of my two wouldn't touch it at first, my other was all over it from the start. I feel like there is a "learning curve" with this food though, adding the right amount of water so its not a brick or soup once it has re-hydrated, and tailored to your individual cats' liking. Since I've switched them however, I've noticed they both have more energy, much softer fur, and have lost weight (switching from free feeding kibble to a schedule alone probably had a lot to do with that too though). Either way I highly recommend THK!
