Rated 1 out of 5 by OldTuxedosHuman Not a smooth pate
The cat I got this for only likes a smooth pate mixed with water to the consistency of thick gravy. But this food is a fine ground consistency and is not like a thick gravy when mixed with water. So she leaves half of it. I only tried this because I order food for my other cats from Chewy.com, but they don't have Simply Nourish brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by gloglo Tuna Pate
My cats don't seem to like this flavor. They take a sniff and walk away from their food or, they will eat a little and leave the rest. I will be switching back to Salmon Pate. I wish you would offer a case or 1/2 a case of mixed flavors to try. Because now I am not sure what I will do with all the Tune Pate I have.

This Merrick's Before Grain Tuna was the very first grain-free can of wet food I ever fed to my cat. I remember it exactly, because she has a sensitive stomach and had been vomiting constantly from her previous food...but she sprinted from across the room and began gobbling the Before Grain down as though I'd brought her an edible, tuna-flavored Holy Grail. I've since shopped around with other grain-free brands, since Before Grain is more expensive than the cheap, store junk brands, and it is still the only pate style food I've ever gotten her to eat without complaint.
While it is still more expensive than the grocery-store brands, it's still half the price of some of the higher-end grain-free stuff, and should probably be your first go-to problem-solver if your cat has a sensitive stomach, and been vomiting a lot. Once your cat's stomach settles, you can try shopping for cheaper grain-free brands, keeping B.G. on back up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fussycat Wonderful for your cat
My cats have grown up on bad cat foods like FancyFeast and while doing so my calico has developed stomach issues to the grains in the foods. She is highly allergic and will throw them back up almost immediately. She has lost so much weight and I have been trying so hard to find a replacement that is both healthy, grain free and of course is something both my cats will eat. I have tried everything and when I picked this up in the store she loved it. She usually likes seafood flavors, and gobbled this up and looked for more. I was so happy she loved it that I gave the other flavors a try and she loves them too. Of all of the grain free varieties she will only eat 3 brands, and this is one of them. She is doing so well on it that she is finally gaining weight back, for a while I was really worried about her. Thank you Merrick and Chewy for such a great product at a good price. I will be back here for refills!

There is never anything left in their bowls when I feed them Merrick wet food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MogMom Two cats love it and eat it enthusiastically
Our cats eat 60/40 wet/dry food. This is their favorite wet food flavor. (We alternate this with the Merrick Bistro duck pate and Nulo freestyle dry chicken food as their grazing food.)
They definitely like the Merrick Bistro duck, but seem to really love the tuna. Alternating those two flavors is our choice because I want to be careful with the fish, mercury, etc., but also because alternating the two flavors seems to keep the cats more engaged and curious at meal time than when we fed just one flavor every day.
They are at a healthy weight, smooth fur, great litter box habits and seem very content on this balance.
