What is the ASH ingredient used in freeze dried raw cat food used for?
Answer by ChewyAug 10, 2020
The ash featured on Meat Mates Guaranteed Analysis reflects the total amount of minerals in their food. These minerals can be measured individually, for example Calcium or Sodium, however when totaled together, are defined as 'ash.' Rest assured all Meat Mates diets are AAFCO certified to be complete and balanced for all stages of a cat's life, their vitamin and mineral fortifier ensures this.

I searched everywhere on the images of the chicken Meat Mates for cats package. Does freeze-dried indicate it's been cooked first, or has it been freeze-dried raw?
Answer by ChewyJun 19, 2019
Freeze dried is raw, not cooked. There is no heat applied. The freezers are 85 degrees below zero as well as pressurized and that extracts the moisture from the product.

What is the carb content?
Answer by ChewyApr 09, 2019
This formula has an approximate carbohydrate content of 0.6%.

Is this food boneless?
Answer by ChewySep 29, 2019
This recipe contains chicken liver and chicken. It does not contain bones.

Slow start but now cats love it

Like most cats, my two were eating dry kibble (in addition to wet food), but after watching several cat nutrition videos, I wanted to find a “raw” option to replace the dry food. I bought this when it was on sale, and just like the bag said, I integrated with their current food over time until the dry food was phased out. Initially, I gave them individual pieces from the bag to try (which they liked) and then began mixing it with their meals. At the beginning, they would eat the dry first and then this. But over time, they started leaving the dry. This is when I knew I could fully transition them. They now eat this alone for two of their three meals. Since they get 2.5-3 ounces of wet a day too, I don’t give them the full recommended amount of this food that’s on the bag. They each get 2/3 cup of this food a day, and this seems to be optimal for their metabolisms and activity. For reference, one of my cats is 11.5 lbs, and the other is 8.5 lbs. I have yet to try the other flavors, and honestly, this one is such a hit that I will probably stick with it and leave the variety to the wet food.

I want him to like it

He LOVES the meat/beef flavor. It's all protein and no bad stuff, great diet for carnivores! Unfortunately, he ate this twice and won't eat it anymore. I gave 2 stars because I think it's worth trying.

Cats love it!

All 3 of my cats love it and unfortunately they will fight over it. They love it dehydrated or rehydrated. Highly recommend

I’m sorry to say Will did not like this particular food.

Just because Will didn’t like it doesn’t mean the product isn’t good. He’s a fussy eater.

Great Idea

Freezed dried chicken is my favorites cat dish. However he didn't like these and don't know why! I would of given this product a better rating if my cat liked them

Crunchy pellets

This raw food is in smaller pellets and so it’s crunchier than Stella and Chewy’s, which I usually feed. The cats like the crunch. It’s more expensive too but is non-GMO .

Freeze dried lovers

Got this for my both my cats. Was really hoping they would love this food because Nala eats stella chewy freeze dried rabbit and Ezra eats vital essentials freeze dried rabbit. But both my cats wouldn't eat it. Its packaged really nice and great ingredients but my cats didn't care for it. Maybe if they come out with rabbit one day I would love to try again.

2 Cats, distinctly different

Two cats, One is 10 years old, the other is 2 years old. One loves wet food (anything in a gravy), the other only eats dry food. What's the big deal? They BOTH love meat mates... The good news is they love all flavors. Supposed to be full of vitamins and actually good for them. Crossing our fingers this lasts more than a month. /grin
