Is it safe to have clay in wet cat food? I noticed this brand does.
Answer by ChewyJun 29, 2020
Montmorillonite Clay is approved by AAFCO for use as an anticaking processing aid to adsorb excess moisture and to help keep the food from clumping.

Why do they need to put Biotin in their food? Unless of course the egg products they are putting in will cause our cats to have a deficiency in Vitamin H? Can anyone explain this to me? I could be wrong but that is why I am asking.
Answer by ChewyApr 02, 2021
Biotin, also known as vitamin H or B8, is a water-soluble, nitrogen-containing vitamin that is imperative for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Biotin has been shown to strengthen keratin found in nails and footpads.

I wanted to love it, I wanted my cats to love it

This was recommended and I thought I would give it a try. I have three cats and normally at least one of them will eat a food even if the other two turn their noses up at it. I was hopeful, and started with the salmon thinking that seafood is a popular go to for my kitties. They seemed to like that flavor, but when it came to the duck and chicken none of them will touch it. I thought I would try another approach and mix a little bit of of in with another type of canned food I know they will eat, but even when I mix it with 75% of a food I know they like they still won't touch it. The ingredients look really good so I was hopeful that this would be a hit in my home. I would try seeing if you can get a single can first and see of your furrbaby will eat it before investing in buying 12.

Great ingredients. Not a hit with the kitty

I really like the ingredients and price point. Unfortunately, our cat who LOVES most wet can food (especially Hill’s Science, Royal Canin, and Oh My Cod) wasn’t into it would only take a few bites.

Great ingredients

With the crazy cat food shortage I have to try to find something my cat will eat Ingredients were good but I missed the fact that it was pate so she took two bites gave me a nasty look and sulked off So if your cat likes pate I think this one would be good

They’re eating again!

We got our brother-sister kittens after they were rescued and bottle fed by our vet. For the first year they were on a raw food diet. Then we switched to American Journey once a day and kibble once a day. After a year they wouldn’t eat the American Journey. I ordered Instinct and since I had cans of AJ, I mixed them. The cats were eating again. Soon they’ll just eat Instinct. Problem solved.

One of the best wet foods, paws down.

My two cats, one 2 years old and one 9 years, both love this food. It has pretty good ingredients, and a fair price compared to similar wet foods. My cats' favorite is the salmon pate. My older cat was struggling a little bit with eating previously, but with this wet food she gobbles it down. Almost no leftovers. Defiantly good quality, no doubt about that.

Great quality food

This food is definitely a top contender amongst the highest quality brands on the market! My kitties love the chicken, duck, and Turkey flavors. I had start buying individual packs because they wouldn’t eat the salmon. But I would still recommend getting the variety pack if you’re just getting your kitty into this so you can learn what your furbaby loves. Both our boys seem to have the same taste so fowl it is!

high quality and kitty likes it

This is high quality food, rated one of the 10 best wet foods by All About Cats. My cat likes it very much, which is not often the case with the healthiest foods. I provide variety for my kitty, and buy variety packs whenever possible, which this is.

3 out of 3 did not like

They all love the instinct toppers. I thought they would at least like the 2 items in the box. They did not.
