Love Merrick although this wasn't a win

All my cats ignore this food. I have to blend it in with their other dry to get them to eat it. I really wanted my 5 mth old to love this. I have two other cats who were rescues and I wanted them to have the extra nutrition.

I wanted to love this

I bought this for my adult cat who has a very sensitive stomach. Unfortunately, he won't even try it. He will smell it and walk away every time. I wanted him to love this food because my dogs loved the Merrick brand and it was amazing for them. I tried, I left it in his bowl for a week and he wouldn't even touch it. I'll donate this to our local shelter and hopefully find something else he likes.

Wish they loved it but...

The ingredients look great and it scores high in the reviews but my kittens (6 & 8 mo) won't touch it, even if they're pretty hungry. Guess we're switching back to Science Diet.

Kitties Loved This Kibble

I have 6 cats, 2 are kittens. I keep a self feeder of kibble available at all times. My cats can be ungodly picky. Its a given that at least 1 will snub any particular brand but I have found that if I mix several brands in the feeder that all cats will happily eat it. When I get a new food I always put out a separate bowl to see if they like it or if there is any digestive issues before adding it to the feeder. This kitten variety was scarfed up on the test run.

Out of stock

Why is the whole line of merrick kitten foods and the all life stages gamebird? We've looked online and even called the company multiple times to find out when stores and chewy will be restocked. Are they don't making the perfect bistro kitten, the gamebird formula, and other dry kitten formula? Highly concerned about this

My boys love this

I have two kittens who love this food. One day, I was working in the dining room and they were in the kitchen. They were quiet at first, then I heard a noise. When I went to inspect, they were both on the counter with their heads in the bag! I guess that was their way of telling me they wanted some hard food!

I had hoped

I’ve been using Merrick small breed for my chihuahuas for approximately 6 years. When I adopted my rag doll kitten I bought Merrick wet and dry kitten. Initially I purchased the smaller cans and she seemed to like it just fine. Once I bought the larger cans she refuses to eat it. Now she won’t touch the dry food either. Not sure what’s changed. I’m pretty disappointed since I was always a huge fan of Merrick.
