  • A (sensitive) feline favorite!

    By on

    I was able to get a bag of this food on sale as a bit of a trial. We have one cat that has an incredibly sensitive system and we want to have more than 1 brand of food he can eat so that he's safe if there are any recalls. I gave this to both him and our other two cats and they both love it, and it sits well with our boy's sensitive stomach (which, before, had only tolerated specific, cheap 'intestinal care' foods). Our female cat has also decided this is her favorite, and will physically push the boys out of the way/off the table if she sees the bag! The only note about this food it that I usually crush up the raw pieces since our cats don't seem to eat them if they're left whole in the bowl I was able to get a bag of this food on sale as a bit of a trial.

  • All the cats love it!

    By on

    We have some very picky eaters in the house. At first two of the kitties were hesitant and would pick out and bat the raw pieces around like toys but now that they've realized it's food they dig in with no hesitation! I just crumbled a couple of them to get them interested. Great product!

  • From lizards to dry food

    By on

    My cat loves this food. He does eat the freeze dried chunks first though. He was a strictly an outdoor cat before we adoped him. He was used to eating whatever he caught but he seems to really enjoy the change.

    Just ordered Glamour a bag of this when she began to act finicky over the Real Bistro Adult Cat. I've mixed the two and she has become much better about her dry food, she also gets one 3oz can of Thanksgiving Day Dinner, but has not shunned the dry since I began mixing them. She loves the freeze dried raw bits, snagging those first and then grazes on the smaller kibble throughout the day. She has been self regulating really well in the last week and no allergy issues or vomiting as of today.

  • Large Quantity

    By on

    Our vet told us to put our cat on a higher protein diet. This is probably one of the highest protein content dry foods on the market. Our cat switched to this food easily. I would only buy it from Chewy again if they offered a smaller sized bag as they do in the big box pet stores. Buy this bag if you have multiple cats to feed and go through a lot of food, otherwise this bag is quite large for just one cat.

  • I got this as an alternative...

    By on

    My standing order was Natural Balance Wild Pursuit Chicken, Turkey Meal & Quail Formula - however, it seems Natural Balance is no longer making that item. One of my two cats is a bit finicky, and she didn't take to the change well... we've tried mixing the remainder of the former meal with the current, and it took her a few days to adjust.

  • It's A Winner !

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    Of the kitties that like kibble, all like this. They do tend to eat the freeze dried morsels, first. All is typically gone sooner than later. Even when the wet cat food is in the bowl. They like the game bird recipes. New to our rotation food plan, but, will definitely purchase again. Kitties give it all paws up.

  • No replacement for Fromm

    By on

    The first time I ever purchased from Chewy for my cat I got Fromm wild bird game dry food. The shipment came in One Day and our cat LOVED it. After notification we couldn't get Fromm any longer from Chewy we tried this brand of dry food for our Rocco. He is not eating it at all. I even picked the most similar flavor as the previous food. Also for some reason this delivery took the longest to arrive. Still a good service but not a good food fit for our kitty.
