    I try everything but my 2-year-cat doesn't want to touch it. Sad.

    I can't even touch this package without my cat noticing and bareling into the room. He loves these. He's been known to open the drawer I keep them in and steal the package.

    My cat loves this product. I crumbled in on top of his food and he had no problem eating it until it was gone!

  • Old cat likes it, she really, really likes it!

    By on

    Old cat needs water and sustenance. Old cat has few teeth. Old cat can't smell, so all of old cat's food must be warmed. Old cat can only hold about 5 fl. oz. at a time. Thisbfood creates balance between old cat's needs and her human's ability to effectively cater to those needs. Also smells like teen cat fish spirit, makes old cat feel younger!

  • great product!

    By on

    Received this to try and my cats love it!!! They line up when they see that I'm holding the back. I love that there's no other added unnecessary ingredients to it. You can either give to your cats with added warm water or as a mixer to their current kibbles. My cats are usually picky with select food or brands but right away they loved this raw mix.

  • Freeze dried cat treats

    By on

    Since stopped carrying Orijen products I tried to find a replacement for their freeze dried cat treats, this Backcountry did not go over very well with my cats. I think it is a very good product but only two of the eight cats would eat it, with the Orijen all eat it.

  • Smoky is not a fan!

    By on

    my finicky cat, Smoky did not care for this one at all. Fortunately it is a small bag and maybe I can mix it with other foods and get her and/or the others to eat it.
