    not good for my young kittens

    By DaryaDariush on Feb 28, 2021

    I wanted my kitties to love this stuff but the chunks are way too big for them to eat it. They end up licking the gravy and leaving the chunks. They don’t have enough teeth to chew this up properly yet. I’ll will keep them and try when they are a little older.

    Kitten won’t eat

    By Fishie on Feb 6, 2021

    Bought 4 different brands of high protein high quality food including this, earth born, blue wilderness, and purina wellness for our bengal kitten and the only one she won’t touch is this backcountry brand. Will be donating the rest of the case to our local rescue :) her fav is the earth born kitten cans!

    Yummy meal!

    By DocDan on Jan 17, 2021

    Our boy loves this... small tender chunks of meat in a decent amount of gravy. Bowl is reliably empty after every meal. Highly recommended!

    By Ashton on Jan 14, 2021

    My kitten absolutely loves this food! He is not normally very food motivated, but he gets so excited as soon as I pull one of the pouches out.

    Like the ingredients & pouch

    By KellyNYC on Dec 26, 2020

    I wish my cat would eat it. She does not like it. She may take a bite and I throw out the rest at night. I would still recommend it. The pouch is a better alternate to cans.

    Kitten loves it

    By Kat31 on Sep 1, 2020

    My kitten loves this food! Definitely her favourite kitten specific food. I wish the kitten food had other flavours like the adult ones do (turkey and rabbit, etc.). I will definitely give this food to my next kitten and hopefully he likes it just as much!
