We understand that every cat is different and that optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, activity level and environment. Kittens need up to 2 times and pregnant / nursing cat 3 times the adult requirement.

  • None of my three cats will touch it

    By on

    If you like this food. I bought it for my cat who is his allergic to fish, as it is hard to find one without fish products. They barely ate it to start with, and I gave them plenty of time after that. As I had 3 bags of it, I brought it back later and tried it again, to no avail. They simply cannot stand it!

  • Seems okay...

    By on

    We ordered three different foods to replace the Fromm's my cats loved before. Although they will eat this occasionally, they usually gravitate to one of the other foods when a few are out. So my cats do eat it, but they are not crazy about it. The kibble is small like Fromm's. I haven't noticed any digestive issues, but my cats prefer both the Crave and the Instinct (and Fromm's that we still have left over)

  • Stopped eating it due to alot of crumbs

    By on

    Something happened with the quality of this food. The last 2 bags I bought there is a lot of crumbs in the food and my cats just don't want to eat it any longer. I bought two different bags with different expiration dates and the food is the same. There ends up being a pile of crumbs in their dish and they don't like that at all. Switching to another food. Sadly.

  • Cats Love It!

    By on

    WOW! Merrick hit a home run in my house. I ordered Merrick Grain Free Chicken to replace the Fromm Chicken a la Veg. I don't have time to go to the pet store so it has to come from Chewy. I put the Merrick in a bowl next to Fromm and it was empty a couple hours later. No one touched the Fromm. I refilled the bowl and the same result. I filled the Merrick bowl three times that day. The two foods also have the same kibble size which my cats like. Thanks to Merrick for making a wonderful product.

  • My cat loves it!

    By on

    I have a very picky cat and she loves it. I have even recommended it to a friend with an elderly cat. Her cat would no longer eat her kibble. Her cat can't get enough of it. I like that it is made in small batches and with American ingredients.

  • My Cat won't touch it...

    By on

    My cat won't touch this stuff. Even if I mix it with her favorite canned food, she'll walk away. Tried several times. No luck. And my cat isn't one of those super picky eaters. But she wouldn't eat the canned variety of this food either. Won't be buying again.

  • This will be my guy's go-to

    By on

    This is the replacement we hit on for Science Diet hairball/urinary formula. My buddy LOVES this. He was not a fan of the last Wellness dry formula we tried but this food he looks forward to for breakfast. His little brother who was on a Wellness formula that he did like would run to snatch this out of his big brother's bowl. So it's a hit here. Plus it has cranberry, fiber and probiotics.

  • Three Paws Up!

    By on

    My three cats love Merrick Purrfect Bistro! I like that it's grain-free and they obviously like the taste! They get canned food 2x a day and Purrfect Bistro as the backup. I have one cat who doesn't really like wet food, and with Purrfect Bistro I feel confident that she's getting a healthy diet.

    I've been trying to find a healthy food that my cat will enjoy. She had no interest in the blue buffalo indoor cat food, she eats this one if there's no other option, purina beyond wasn't a winner either.
