  • Great choice!

    By on

    We purchased this for our two kitties after adopting them from an animal shelter because this is what they were fed there. Both love it. It's a little pricier than other dry foods, but the quality is worth it. Our cats are grazers, so one bag goes a long way. Also, delivery came 1 day after we ordered. Highly recommended.

  • Kitten does well on it

    By on

    My kitten was in love with the blue buffalo kitten food, and she doesn't really love this as much. However, they were having a lot of recalls, and I couldn't keep her on it. This is definitely her second favorite, and I feel like it's safe. She eats the wet too in the evening. We'll be swapping to big girl food here soon and I'll go for the adult version then.

  • Kitties LOVE it

    By on

    Noticeable difference in their coats - they're so shiny! It doesn't hurt that they love it! Plan on keeping them both on this until we hit a year - they seem to be thriving on this (versus the "junk" they were eating before adoption).

  • Kitties Love

    By on

    My kittens love it. They would leave food in their bowls before. They ate everything when the Merrick kitten food was feed to them, and I did not even have to transition them from their old food.

  • Until he switches to big boy food, this is the one

    By on

    My little one LOVES this. He also likes his older brother's Merrick dry chicken formula. They both switch back and forth from bowl to bowl to enjoy one another's food.

  • Addie gives 2 paws up!

    By on

    I have been very pleased with Merrick's Purrfect Bistro line. The kitten we recently adopted from the shelter had obviously come from a hard beginning. You can't tell that now! Her coat, skin, just her overall appearance has radically changed. She is the picture of health, and she loves her food! This is all she will be eating because I have had trouble with two other major brands while fostering kittens.
