    High Protein and a Treat

    By on

    This food is high protein and my cat loves the freeze dried bits, so much that he will sometimes eat them before the dry kibble. Not a problem for my cat but may upset the stomach of others. Over 6 months feeding this food and my cat definitely has a silkier coat, is at a great weight and, has a lot of energy.

    My 3 love it

    By on

    It's sometimes difficult to get 3 cats to agree on a food. But all 3 of mine love this. I'm not crazy about feeding them a dry kibble, but it's the only thing they agree on at the moment!

    Disappointing

    By on

    My cats love the raw bits in this food... but that's the only part they want to eat. Waste of money. Going to have to get a bag of the old food, also Merrick, which they're in love with.

    cat didn’t like the raw bites

    By on

    Great ingredients but my cat did not like the raw frozen bites. Would eat around them. Felt like a waste of food so I switched to a different brand. Overall though I would have no problem feeding my cat this food if only he would eat the full thing as I said it’s a great product.

    Great food but bag has no way to close it

    By on

    Cats love it, the freeze dried bits are especially nice as I had to add them to their other dry food. A little concerning that there is no zip lock or other way to close a large bag of dry food since it is exposed to air and could attract bugs.

    Best food we've had

    By on

    When I first adopted a cat, this was recommended to me as one of the best foods and I've bought it for every cat since. They all love it, and I noticed my cats' coats have improved when they started eating the Merricks food. They love the regular kibble and raw bits, and there's plenty of both. I could not recommend this food enough.

    USA made and cat likes it

    By on

    My cat likes this food better than the other high end food I was feeding her. She doesn't like the light colored "raw infused" bits but easily eats around them (or I pick them out). I love that this cat food is sourced and made in USA.
