Great Taste! Easy to Make!

My cat doesn’t like wet food at all! I cannot get her to eat canned food at all. But, I tried The Honest Kitchen Dehydrated Chicken Formula and she devours it! Each morning, I mix room-temp or lightly warm water into the mixture and stir. You can make it as soupy or thick as to your cat’s preference. Let it sit for a minute or so and put it down. My cat meows constantly while I’m preparing it. She loves it and this is the only way I can get her to eat wet food. The only reason I didn’t give it a five star rating is because of the cost. Pretty expensive so I don’t give her much, that way it lasts longer.

Cat seems to like this

I gave my cat other wet foods and she really ate up all of this. Then she got bored and had left overs in the am. However by mid day the next day, when mixed with dry she ate it all up. I think that this is due to my cat pacing herself rather than hating the food. With other wet food, she would eat bare min. and let me know she wouldn't touch it (blue buffalo Salmon pink label). I like this Honest Kitchen b/c small carbon footprint and has good ingredients. Thankfully I got to try this food b/c another cat owner didn't have patience to make the food for his cats!

Honest Kitchen is wonderful

My cats love this food! I do add a little fresh chicken or tuna to the mix. My one cat that throws up all other food, does not with this one. We have used Honest Kitchen for our dog's for years and they love it. Thank you Chewy for making it easier to get. Love the home delivery.

Not remotely interested

I really wanted her to like this stuff but she had literally 0 interest in it. Usually she'll be milling around or want to investigate food I'm preparing but this one she didn't even want to sniff when I put a sample down. It seems to congeal very quickly which she's never a fan of, so she never came back to it before I had to throw it out.

Honestly no go

None of my cats wanted to try it. When they did try it they all took one lock and walked away. I even tried mixing it with other food but they wouldn't go near it. I really wanted them to like this.

Did a slow transition without issues

Not a problem, this was the first time it was easy to change up his food.

Nice Food but the bag it comes in!

I have been using this to supplement my homemade wet food for several years. Overall I am satisfied with the food quality and I am hopeful they have found a way to grind up the dried cranberries because not a single cat at our sanctuary will eat them. However, the manufacturers have changed the bag the food comes in and frankly for the price they charge, you would think they would use a decent bag that opens easily and stays closed. I have taken to emptying the contents into a gallon storage bag as soon as I open the box, which works MUCH better.

Why change formula?

Previous version was a total hit. This new formula change was an expensive mistake as no one will eat it, dry or prepared - even the outside ferals run from it. Mixed in with homemade chicken breast and outcome was same. Have taken this off my list.

We all love this!

LOL, ok, so... you may have construed that people eat this, too. We don't... even though it is human grade food. One of the reasons I love it is because our little town in Colorado doesn't recycle. I was feeding my 2 barn/outdoor cats Friskies canned food in the mornings, but just tossing the empty cans into the trash was killing me. So we went to Honest Kitchen dehydrated food instead. The first week or so, I mixed a can of Friskies in this every day, and they gobbled it down. The second week, I mixed up 3-4 days' worth of Honest Kitchen and tossed one can of Friskies in. They still gobbled it up. Now, we are a "can-free" household and I couldn't be happier. The boys (kitties) love their food. The dish is always cleaned. And I don't have to worry about waste. My dogs love Honest Kitchen, too. They're very, very healthy and they just love the food. My elderly German Shepherd had bowel problems with his canned food, but he's been on Honest Kitchen for about a year now and he's doing so well. I'm really happy with their products for my babies.

Pretty good!

Since it was different than normal, took time for cats to like it. But we were only doing it to augment diet anyway. So we just mixed it in with our normal fancy feast wet and they were a-okay with it!
