Rated 4 out of 5 by Martha1 Cat eats it & good nutrition.
Only negative is that there seems to be quite a bit of loose food not formed into pellets that makes measuring a bit harder. I usually count out the number of pellets to soak and feed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bb13 Great ingredients
Unfortunately, 2 cats, different breeds, 3 years apart did not like this. I kept offering the food both wet and dry. Hope this works for others, I really wanted both to be on this food permanently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laurie Finally decided to try
My cats were the "they will only eat fancy feast" cats. I finally decided to try Stella & Chewy's raw diets (this one and chicken) and they love it, all four of them! It is safe, easy and convenient as opening a can of food. I could not believe how much they loved just the smell when I opened the bag! Always gone!

Rated 2 out of 5 by PSNNYC Did Not Live Up To Reviews
I bought this based on really solid reviews on Chewy and that I saw elsewhere. Three kitties, and none would eat this past day 1. If I use this as a topper or solo, wet or a few crumbled dry, my kitties look at me like I'm nuts. Awesome that others have had great experience, but my guys - all used to high end/ healthy food - have drawn a very clear boundary. The bag has mostly gone to waste.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KtB5 Item was stale :(
I absolutely love ordering my pets' food stuffs from Chewy's, so I hate having to write a less than exemplary review. Truly.
However, I have been purchasing Stella & Chewy's freeze dried foods from a local brick & mortar store & when the product is fresh, it's crisp-ish and has a bit of a snap - it's an obvious difference. When this product came, sadly the chunks were bendy with no snap to them & they even have a traditional stale smell.
It wouldn't be a HUGE problem, except that our male maine coon is very picky and he cannot eat this stale. It's the ONLY non-kibble food (we use kibble as snack & wet food primarily) he'll eat as a treat. We were SO excited to discover this as a treat food because he is so picky.
I tried giving him some non-stale S&C TTTD that I still had, and he gobbled it up.
So, I have to say I'm very disappointed and sadly don't know that I'm comfortable purchasing this item from you again.
And I really wish that wasn't true. I LOVE you guys. But this was sadly a waste that we can't use (the girls have plenty of their own treats, so it's hard to say when we'd actually use this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Grandpets Better Contents...But
The Chewy cat food clearly has better ingredients than the canned cat food we feed our three cats. However, only one of our cats actually tried it. She does eat it but so far the other two are staying away. I've got my hopes up, though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mclan 18 oz morsels are very different in color and water absorption
This review is only for 18 oz bag.
What has happened to the morsels? I usually get the 12 oz bag and was pleased to see the 18 oz. But I will not buy it again. The morsels are of a very much lighter color than the usual "Tummy Ticklin'" turkey. And they simply don't want to absorb the water. The first day I used them, I put in the water and waited a couple of minutes--no water had been absorbed and I had to chop for several minutes to achieve the consistency that my cat likes.
I'm giving 3 stars only because of the high quality of the food, otherwise, I'd give it one star because of the impossibility to get it wet enough to mix in a reasonable amount of time.
This morning an hour before the cat's breakfast time I tried an experiment. I put the morsels in the cat's bowl and added the water, then waited for 15 minutes--still hard as a rock. Tried again at 1/2 hour, the morsels had *still* not absorbed enough water to easily mix into a sort of lumpy mush my cat loves. Finally, *one full hour later* I was able to mix the food properly. And still he got one stuck in his teeth and went through all kinds of gyrations to get it dislodged. This NEVER happened with the morsels in the 12 oz bag.
Further, I'm afraid in the near future all the morsels will soon be like this--then I'll have to move over to the other brand of freeze-dried raw turkey. I like Stella & Chewy's much better, but going to those lengths to get the morsels wet is simply unrealistic. (My cat can eat only raw, freeze dried turkey because any other food gives him diarrhea.)
Please, Stella & Chewy's, fix this problem!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnneB Cats Love Them!
Really do appreciate having a clean, natural product to feed our cats and they are crazy for Stella & Chewy's freeze-dried cat food! We have 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.
