    My cats and foster cats adore this

    By Kim27 on Apr 12, 2019

    Before purchasing FirstMate, I read many reviews. A few of them said that their cats did not like it. Some cats do not like salmon. I have more than one cat, plus several cats in my home as fosters for a rescue group. ALL of the cats in my home (who eat canned food) were thrilled with this food. Even Before purchasing FirstMate, I read many reviews. A few of them said that their cats did not like it. Some cats do not like salmon. I have more than one cat, plus several cats in my home as fosters for a rescue group. ALL of the cats in my home (who eat canned food) were thrilled with this food. Even my cat who usually is picky about salmon ate most of it (she leaves the more solid pieces). I do not know if this love affair with the food will continue, but it has happened every time I have fed this food since buying it (I do rotate canned food in the morning to avoid cats getting used to a specific kind). It is certainly worth trying it. Plus, it is made from ingredients it pleases me to support! … more

    Spoiled indoor cats rejected

    By Barb on Jul 13, 2018

    I donated it to an aging feral colony. Those poor animals will eat anything. At least this is quality food.

    Great ingredients!!!

    By on

    This is a single source protein product (wild caught Pacific salmon) that has great ingredients! It's also grain free. It's really challenging to find a single source protein wet cat food and I'm glad this product is available. It doesn't smell like old fish (like a lot of other fish based wet foods), is more like a pate, and comes with a little extra moisture in the can (which is great b/c cats needs more moisture in their foods). It's also perfect for a cat who might have an allergy to other proteins. With all that being said, only 1 of our 7 cats will eat it and she only eats a little bit of it. We feed our 5 indoor kits and 2 semi-feral barn cats the same food and the verdict is in, This is a single source protein product (wild caught Pacific salmon) that has great ingredients!

I would still recommend this food for other kitties to try, though. … more

    I have 3 indoor and an outdoor feral that I feed twice a day. I switched to this food when I found out someone had an allergy. Since starting everyone on First Mate, no issues! I can't more highly recommend this cat food.

    Salmon First Mate

    By on

    My cats had zero interest in this food. My hens are like dogs - eating any cat food I choose to give them. Since this is fish I gave it to them. They would not eat it either!

    Good review

    One cat loves it and one cat could care less. However, it's a good product and easy to serve. We like the larger size.

    Mostly liked

    Picky Miss likes this about half the time. Hungry Boy loves it all the time. I like it because it's salmon. No junk fillers. Quality food that looks like quality food.

    Little guy loves it

    By on

    Opening the first can I let him sniff the food, he was going nuts. I peeled off the top and was a bit worried because this was more of a patte than chunks, which he was used to. Worries didn't last long, he loves it. I'm happy too because of the quality ingredients. No grains, glutens, carrageenan, or guar gum. Researching wet cat food led me to this brand, glad I tried it. Even happier that the little guy loves it.

    Great ingredients!

    By on

    It's been a tiring search trying to find brands with ingredients that are wholesome and healthy, and this is one! No carageean...that's right none! First-Mate offers several flavored canned catfoods. Started off with this flavor and it was a hit...at least with one of my two fussy kitties. I will be trying the others.
