Rated 5 out of 5 by AnneB Our Cats Favorite!
Really appreciate having a clean, natural product to feed our cats and they are crazy for Stella & Chewy's freeze-dried cat food! We've tried four of the flavors and they liked every one (especially the Chick, chick, chicken). Initially, we rehydrated it per instructions, but our cats have never liked 'wet' food. So we just crumble up the bits, toss with some kibble, and keep bowls of fresh water next to their food dishes.

My cat enjoys these as treats. If I rehydrate it, he won't touch it. Go figure.

Very convenient way to feed raw, especially when people in household are vegetarian. Kitties like it, but I've been finding lots and lots of small sharp bones and removing them. I know cat can digest bones, but they did disturb throat several times in the past. I am not sure if I buy them again or should try other freezed dry option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2Medicis Nutritious, highly palatable & user friendly
I've tried several iterations of raw diet cat foods over the years. Vets and other experts all seemed to agree they were the gold standard for nutrition. However, whether frozen and thawed or freeze dried, my cats would never touch the stuff.
A local pet food store offered me some samples of the Stella & Chewy freeze dried chicken. My two Burmese boys, 7 & 9, went nuts for it, after rejecting one premium canned food after the next if they had to eat for > 2-3 days. Their coats have never been so shiny and conditioned as they are now.
I particularly like that the freeze-dry process kills harmful bacteria, and thus there is no danger of parasites or other issues related to raw meat. Of course, taurine and other nutrients are added for complete nutrition.
It comes in in easy to crumble pellets about the diameter of a dime. You can rehydrate it, but it turns into kind of a sticky paste. Instead, I crumble it on top of their canned food, which they are now eating more readily. My 9 yr old boy had lost some weight during a recent illness, has now regained it and looks terrific. He likes a pellet or two as a between meal snack too.
I doubt there is ANY food that all cats will eat. They are cats after all. My 15 yr old girl is not wild about this food, but she demands cream gravy with absolutely everything. (She is from Texas; the boys are from Pennsylvania. Figures.)

Our 13 year old cat can't eat beef or fish, so this product is purr-fect for her. Very easy to use and smells great. We put it on top of her canned food, and she really looks forward to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jackiecreasy Excellent product
Chewy recommended product. I had never heard of this freeze dried product and it now is a part of each meal for my 2 cats. I have found that freeze dried products have literally stopped the hairball problems that have plagued my cats. I believe that the dried product makes my cats thirsty. The thirst causes them to drink more water which helps the fur through the gut. Chewy basically saved my cat's life.

by MDrRedhead They love it!
Both of my cats love this! They like it dry and not mixed either with water or chicken broth. Our sweet black boy cat has a serious chronic disease, and was feeling badly. We started him on treatment and he had no appetite, for the cat food we were giving him. It is Weruva which both cats loved, before Lucas was sick. I bought this freeze-dried raw food and Lucas really dug into it. Georgie, our honey and cream cat enjoyed it too, she has always preferred dry food. This can be put out and won't go bad, so it becomes the favorite "overnight snack". Also, this is completely healthy for cats and this is what we want!

by LaurieD Very easy to use!
My cat, Phoebe, has nasty food allergies and had been on a frozen raw diet for the past several years. She got sick with an intestinal bug last July and has refused to eat the raw food ever since. I'd been feeding her BFF canned food and she loves it, but it wasn't the best thing as far as her allergies go. She was throwing up, her skin was all scabby and her coat didn't look very nice (allergy symptoms). I was given a bag of Stella & Chewy's freeze dried raw turkey to try and she loves it! I love the ease of use and not having to remember to take several meals worth of frozen out of the freezer every day. I just put 5 or 6 pieces of the food in a small amount of water and it's ready in a few minutes.
I ordered the chicken and the duck/goose to try and she doesn't seem to like to chicken as well as the turkey. So, I ordered a couple more bags of the turkey for her. She's not spoiled at all :) Her skin is much better and her coat is nice and shiny again. No throwing up, either, which is a wonderful thing for me!
