  • Fat Cat Loves It!

    By on

    I have a big ol 14lb fat tabby who is on a diet. She LOVES this food, and it makes me feel good to know it's good for her too. We just started it, so I can't say much as far as weight control (yet) but she's not complaining about the taste. :)

  • Merrick Dry Cat Food

    By on

    She was not one ounce finicky with this food. She has transformed from a cat to a pig. She loves it! Only problem, she wants more all the time. Any cat parents that have a picky eater...try Merrick...they will probably love it and love you for getting it.

  • Approved by Sir Duncan Fuzzybottom and Sir Chives Spottyfoot

    By on

    The Humans were worried when Fromm was not longer providing Chewy with their products. However, Chewy, being the incredible company they are, gave us other options we as kitties might like. Us kitties, Sir Duncan Fuzzybottom and Sir Chives Spottyfoot chose Merrick Purrfect Bistory Grain-Free Healthy Weight Recipe and could not be happier. We love it! We get our nutrition and still appear to be hairball free! You should see the furry pants on Duncan! ;) The humans highly recommend this product for its reasonable price, durable packaging (we cannot claw into it), and unique closing/stay fresh design.

  • Love at first bite

    By on

    I started one of my cats on a diabetic food, and I guess it tastes amazing because my big boy decided he should be eating too. After some pretty intense battles, we looked for some better food for him. The day we got Merrick's the fighting stopped. He actually prefers it to the cans of soft food. Super cool.

    I switched my cat Oliver from adult to weight loss dry food. He did not notice a difference and he loves it. I am very happy that he is eating this! Great quality!

  • Cats disapproved

    By on

    My multiple cats did not eat this at all. They avoid this one and eat some other ones on the same plate. I was hoping they would like this but Merrick changed its formula or something, the pellet size is so small now. Perhaps that's one of the reasons they don't eat.
