Cats Like It

This is a good food that my cats find very palatable. I like that it comes in a larger can size. There is a lot of broth in the can which can be messy since it is a pull top can. I found vigorously shaking the can prior to opening and then giving the contents a few stirs with a spoon to be helpful. It is expensive but worth it because it doesn't have problematic ingredients.

Had to donate it.

There's nothing wrong with the cat food; cats are fussy and they liked it at first but then turned it down. We have three cats; one indoors and two strays.

It's lacking

I purchased this because I was excited to find a food that didn't have gum in it. There was no problem with the texture. However, aside from the supplements, the food is only chicken and potatoes. That sounds neither good nor appetizing. My cats ate it here and there, but grew bored quickly. My dog ended up cleaning up what they left behind.

Awesome ingredient list

I love this food. I tend to jump around from different foods for my cats, not really being 100% satisfied with what I bought. This is the ONE food I have kept my cat with IBD on for months and months. There's a short ingredient list with no preservatives. It stays palatable for a few days and my cat has never turned his nose up at this food. Only downside is that its somewhat expensive, but you do get a large quantity. This paired with hills perfect digestion is one happy kitty

Not crazy over this

They nibble, about half get's thrown out after sitting. I'm disappointed because it smells fresh and nice but, I'm not a cat.

Very Disappointed

None of my three cats will eat this food. They sniff and turn away. It's very watery!

THE BEST you can buy

This company truly understands feline needs and nutrition. Cats need wet food. They do not need gums and thickeners which produce an awful paste which is then called pate. I have read different reviews from other companies where people complained about "water" in the can. When you boil chicken you add (water=) liquid to MAKE BROTH. My 16 indoor kitties LOVE this food and all other food from this company!

They love it at first now they just like it

I have 4 cats and at first they all love it. Now only 2 of them eat it. I don’t know what’s going on , but I’m glad they still eat the food! Thankfully chewy is the best place to shop and I love the large selection of cats food. Thank you!

Healthy food But......

This is a really healthy food but with a cattery it is so hit and miss. The few cats that like their food soupy it went over great. The bigger group said no way

My cats love it!

I really love how clean this product is. No ridiculous additives. I mix it with some raw freeze dried Stella & Chewy's bits and both my cats love it!
