If it is wild caught, why doesn't it state that on the ingredient list?? Only the label on front.

The label states wild caught salmon to identify how the salmon is sourced only.

Clean Ingredients in FirstMate

This is the only brand of ready-to-serve wet cat food I can locate that has entirely wholesome ingredients. It costs more to feed my cats, but in the long run, they are healthier and it saves money as well as suffering from ill health.

Love First Mate!

This is such great food. I have met with this company and I like the way they do business and the product is excellent. It is very moist and I feel good giving it to my fur family. They love it too.

Not perfect, but close enough

I spent hundreds of dollars searching for a healthy canned food my picky cat would not boycott the food bowl over. Like some other cats I've known, she would quite literally rather starve than have something she didn't care for. She was losing weight steadily, which is particularly bad for a cat with kidney disease. I was at the local pet supply and saw this and brought home a can. An instant success. This was 3 months ago. I thien ordered some from Chewy and received what looks like their new formula (the new cans, I believe, are the ones with the red maple leaf on top, showing off its Canadian origins). It seems to be the same exact food, but with more water mixed in. It's definitely less dense than the previous version. This is a mixed blessing for us, as my cat definitely needs to have a higher water intake because of her kidney issues. And she loves this new version just as much, if not more. But it also means we're going through it faster. It was already a bit pricy before getting "watered down." I know these are difficult times for anybody selling any product in this world, but I wish there were the same amount of "solids" in the formula as before, as I can always add my own water. Still, I'm relieved that there's something she consistantly likes, because that had NEVER happened before with this kitty. So please keep it coming!

Dipper is alive!

You all are the BEST! Ordering, shipments ahead of estimated time, excellent product! Our pup would not be alive if it weren’t for Chewy and special foods. Thank you with all our hearts.

good cat food

This seems like a good cat food but both my cats don't like it. Wished I got a small can to try before getting this package of 12 big cans.

lacks appeal and not really a holistic food

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 salmon and potatoes. That sounds neither good nor appetizing. My cats ate it very excitedly at first, but grew bored quickly. My dog ended up cleaning up what they left behind.

Best LID Salmon I have tried

I have a can with IBD, and salmon is the only animal protein that doesn't cause him intestinal issues. LID diets work well for him, and this one in particular is his go-to food. My other 3 cats became a bit jealous, so now all 4 of them eat I'm thankful for the 12 oz cans.

I thought for sure my 3 cats would just love this. They did for about 1 day and then they would not touch it. I guess it's a "cat thing."

just salmon & potato

My cats love this! My cat, Quincy has had pretty severe food allergies for about 5 or more years now. It has been extremely difficult finding foods that do not make her have skin breakouts. This food is easily digestible. Hope this will stay in stock. I’ve got my cats on this and american journey (salmon) since those two work for Quincy.
