    Enjoyed this food!

    I ordered a small bag to try for one of my cats, I didn't really know what to expect since I had not purchased a food like this before. Not only did my cat love it...all my cats loved it. It reconstitutes rapidly in warm or room temperature water, forming a soft gruel appropriate for sensitive mouths I ordered a small bag to try for one of my cats, I didn't really know what to expect since I had not purchased a food like this before. Not only did my cat love it...all my cats loved it. It reconstitutes rapidly in warm or room temperature water, forming a soft gruel appropriate for sensitive mouths or kittens. Its feeding guide indicates all life stages, and I appreciate the high 40% protein content. I think it is a good alternative to wet food as canned can be costly in a multi-cat household. The formula contains potato which I feel meh about, but it's far better than a bunch of grains. While some may like to feed all protein diets, I do not mind well rounded foods with a bit of healthy carbs, veggies, and fruit. I can see using it as a mixer in dry food or canned food to add extra nutrition and flavor as well. Bonus that it is near exclusively US ingredients. I think it is a good quality diet at an extremely fair price. … more

    Know your cats' taste

    By toto on Aug 2, 2019

    While my cats (3) will usually gobble up canned cat food mixed with their dry kibble, I mixed this with my cats' regular dry food and they refused to eat it. In fact, they wouldn't even eat the dry food it was mixed with. After trying three feedings this way, I gave up and went back to their usual dry While my cats (3) will usually gobble up canned cat food mixed with their dry kibble, I mixed this with my cats' regular dry food and they refused to eat it.

    Great "Raw" food

    By on

    This is a great food to feed your beloved felines. Freeze Dried is as close as you can get to "Raw". We like to add some probiotics and enzymes to help with the digestion process and Fish Oil to boost Omega 3s and coat quality. I've done tons and tons of research on pet food. I always find myself coming back to Grandma Lucy's. The fact that I can read every ingredient on the bag is huge! They are family owned and operated. At the end of the day, they are a wholesome small business that I love to support and when I feed their products, I know my pets are getting the best food money can buy.

    My kittens eat it

    By on

    I mix this with some American Journey wet food and my kittens eat it. Sometimes when I give them dry food or only wet can food, they are reluctant to eat and switch back to the freeze-dried food, but persistence usually fixes that. Overall the kittens eat well and are a healthy weight. So I'm happy that I can feed my kittens a healthy diet without breaking the bank (since an all wet diet is expensive if you only buy wet can food).

    Well Received By 15 Kitties!

    By on Top 25 Contributor

    With 15 very different felines in our care, making sure everyone gets enough fluids daily can be a challenge, especially for the cats with urinary issues! We started mixing water into their daily wet food years ago. Our cats are of the thieving variety, so individual servings just won't do. We find using a large, flat-ish puppy dish/saucer to mix and serve everything together in works best for us. We mix 4-5 5.5oz cans of wet food, 1 cup of Grandma Lucy's, five to six cups of warm water, and all the kitties daily supplements(probiotics, digestive enzymes, glucosamine, and lysine) to make a nice soup. Before we started adding Grandma Lucy's, the cats didn't always finish everything.

My cats do not like Grandma Lucy's on it's own, but apparently find it very enjoyable as a mixer. We buy two 3 pound bags a month. … more

    Healthy, budget conscious, great cat food

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I was prepared for a week of fussing trying to transition my cat to this new food, but he digged right in and loved it. It has simple, limited (my perception is that the more ingredients it has the less meat they contain), whole ingredients, and although I am not crazy about veggies for cats, I am willing to compromise if the price is right and the first three to four ingredients are meat, depending on the total amount of ingredients. To supplement, I give a few pellets of Feline Natural Chicken & Lamb Feast Raw Freeze-Dried which only has meat. I tried other raw freeze dried like Stella and Chewys, Instinct, The Honest Kitchen, etc. but they are way too expensive.

    Great Product that Most People Don't Understand

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    My cats love this food. Both my cats have been on this food for a long time and I normally don't write reviews but I think most people give GL a bad review because they don't understand their food. Grandma Lucy's Artisans is their potato based food Performance is their chick pea based food The meat (chicken and fish) is all throughout the food. They put larger pieces at the top of the bag so the customers can see it not necessarily for the animals. I personally prefer the chick pea based food for my dogs because I feel that my dogs don't need all the potato's but that's just me. I feed a diversity of things to my animals, they don't just receive Grandma Lucy's. My cats also get Stella and My cats love this food.

    good mixer

    By on

    I really like this food to mix together with other freeze dried foods. My cat is the type that likes gravy and this makes a palatable gravy. I would recommend it.
