Rated 1 out of 5 by olddude Gross stuff
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/

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Denise My cats LOVE this!
I have a 13byear old cat who is a little harder to convert as she has been on kibnle her entire life, but my kittens and 2 year old cat LOVE this stuff! I mix in a small can of Fancy Feast to get the smell to attract them. They ate slowly the first couple ofndays but now absolutelu DEVOUR this stuff right down! I now have converted all four dogs and all four cats. Next goal is to c9nvert the barn cats.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ElAzar It was Ok
My cat likes something to sink his teeth into. This food is in powder form. It's good for sprinkling on his dry food. I added water and rolled it in little balls and dried it again. He liked it this way. Prefers his regular diet that has more texture. He does not like his freeze dried food moistened. He drinks plenty before and after eating. Loves his fountain.

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!

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.

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.
