    My sister's cat LOVES this stuff

    By on

    I come from a family of crazy cat ladies so I passed this on to my sister and her kitty, Rascal, devours this! He gets so excited for meal time, my sister is tripping over him trying to get the plate on the floor. I did not buy this for Rascal, but for my cat. Nips sniffed it and walked away, totally uninterested. I tried mixing with wet food, dry food, as a treat - nothing worked so I accepted my picky kitty was not going to eat it. Works for some, not all, but a great option for cats with sensitives.

    Outdoor cat colony and five indoor cats LOVE it!

    By on

    All the cats’ coats are shinier thanks to this! I was a little nervous unpacking the product because of the dry ice in the box, but I put on gloves to do it, and it was worth it! Cats that are fed less healthier, lower quality food may need a little bit of time to warm up to this (mine gobbled it right up, but if your cats are beyond spoiled, a little bit of a topper would go a long way in helping your fur baby/babies learn to eat healthier). It is such a great raw food option, especially if you don’t have as much time to properly prep raw food for your cats. I didn’t even think it would be possible to feed my cats raw so soon, but this was good for my budget and is making the transition smooth All the cats’ coats are shinier thanks to this!

    Approved by my cat

    By on

    My cat Bugsy loves this food, which surprised me because he is a very picky eater. We’ve been trying to get him to try more flavors of food other than fish, and this worked. He gobbles these nuggets up right away. Good to know there is a healthier, fresher food for my cat that he will eat.

    My picky cats love this food!

    By on

    I’ve been feeding my two cats this for over a year now because I finally found something they both love. I add warm water to the frozen nuggets at feeding time and it only takes about 30 seconds to defrost. It’s healthy, easy, and compared to most raw food, very reasonably priced.

    My cat likes it!

    By on

    My cat is diagnosed with IBD, allergic to almost every can food and refuses to eat prescription food. I bought this from local store once, he did not like it. I am so desperate this time so I decide to give it a second chance when I saw it is available from chewy. I used microwave oven to defrost some and fed him. He likes it! Even chases after me for it!

    Cats LOVE this food

    By on

    Love that Chewy now carries this food as our local Pet Co hardly ever has it in stock. One of our cats has gastrointestinal issues and this food is not only the only thing he’ll eat, but it’s also the only one that’s kept him healthy and believe me....we’ve tried EVERY food! 5 Stars all around!

    My Cats Won't Touch If

    By on

    I like the concept and I wanted to give my boys more things to spice up their food once and awhile. They completely turn away from it and won't even touch their food. They aren't super picky eaters, but I just assume they don't like "healthy" things.

    My Hairless Egyptian who loves food, loves this

    By on

    In trying to keep my cat healthy, amid the many food options out there in which we are not sure of the ingredients used, I feel this is pure and simple enough to make sure my cat gets what he needs in his diet without the extra unknown ingredients found in so many others. He likes his served with a little warm water added for Dinner.

    My cats didn't care for this product

    By on

    I have an old cat (soon to be 17) who we cannot keep weight on. She was the only one who loved this food. My other three cats did not want to eat it at all. Cats certainly each have their own distinct tastes.
