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.

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 4 out of 5 by Karlie Love it!
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 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.

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.
