No go with a new flavor !

I always buy Merrill Salmon and Sweet Potato but thought I’d try Pacific Catch for my cats but they won’t eat it. I’ll have to go back to the Salmon give the rest of the Pacific Catch to the kitty rescue!

Good food here. My cats turned noses up.

None of my five kitties would do much more than nibble this. Don't know if it was the potato protein, but they just didn't care for it and they like fish based foods usually. Too bad as the ingredients are nutritious.

Kitties LOVE this

I been needing a better diet for my 2 cats as I have slacked with their dietary needs. I have an almost 2 yr old and a 7 yr old so finding a diet to meet both of their needs is a bit difficult. They LOVE this switch. The freeze dried pieces are a good size (even for my small girl) and there are a few per each scoop. They also had a TON of energy after eating which is important for my older boy. And my girl is full after eating whereas before she would scarf her food and always seem hungry on her previous diet. I hope I can see great skin and fur results for Isis after a month of feeding. Definitely recommend

Great stuff

My 4 fur babies Love this..slowly added to their existing Blue Buffalo dry so no adverse reactions and they clean their bowls now! Love the fact that we can feed raw without the hassles of raw prep

I swear by Merrick

My cat is about 1 1/2 and is an indoor/outdoor cat. He is extremely active and is very hunting/protecting and exploration oriented. This food keeps him strong and healthy. It maintains nutrient levels that are able to keep up with his activity levels while he’s outdoors. He absolutely loves the food, but will sift through and eat all the raw infused pieces first and leave the rest until he’s really hungry.

A hit with Momo

My cat loves this food! Which is great since she is allergic to chicken and it's difficult to find cat food that doesn't contain poultry.

Cats Love the Food/Great service

Have purchased this product before because the cats love this food. It's made in the USA - one of the very few pet foods made in the States. shipped quickly and without incident. Thanks!

Not what I was expecting

I thought this was going to be the freeze dried raw chunks, but it's dry kibble with only a few (not even 1 per 1/2 cup) of the freeze dried mixed in. My cat doesn't like it very much.

Sorry but NO

Oh my I was pretty surprised but my cat said a huge NO to this food. I bought this on sale and didn’t get to open it until a few days ago. The raw infused pieces are way to big for my cat. He picks them up and spits them out.

Cats won't eat it!

Got this for my younger cat who will eat anything. Two older cats are eating Blue Buffalo RX diets. None of the cats will touch this, even when their bowls are empty and it's past dinner time. They are not picky eaters. Had high expectations, but unfortunately this food fell short, would not recommend.
