We believe in feeding dry and canned food in combination, whenever possible, to help increase the level of water in your cat's diet. Please have clean, fresh water available at all times.

We understand that every cat is different and that optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, activity level and environment. Kittens need up to 2 times and pregnant / nursing cat 3 times the Adult requirement.

Transition Instructions

Gradually mix in new food over a 7 - 10 day period, increasing the amount of Merrick Purrfect Bistro Recipe each day.

  • My cats love Merrick

    By on

    I tried for a long time to find a good quality food that all seven of my cats would eat. This was the big winner. All of my cats are eating the indoor senior and the chunky ones have all lost some weight while loving their food. I only wish it came in a larger bag like all the other Merrick cat foods do.

  • Evelyn loves it!

    By on

    My senior gal is really liking this food! I had previously tried to put her on the wellness complete senior formula and she let me know that she was NOT fond of it (refused to even touch it) so we tried this next and it’s a hit! She eats it right up. We will repurchase when we run out.

  • Its a winner with a problem

    By on

    My cat Milo has been on a special diet due to age and hyperthyroidism. He has had the treatment and has been cured so I switched him to the Merrick Senior formula. He really loves it but it has a lot -and I mean a lot- of food powder in the bag. I have to sieve the food before I give it too him so he doesn't get a mouthful of food "dust". I will try it one more time and hope it was just an anomaly.

  • So far... I am waiting to see

    By on

    Unlike a lot of people that stated their cats did not like it, I started mixing it with their previous food.(Cats don't like their food change abruptly.) Eventually it will be at pretty much full strength and I'll see if I continue to buy it. I REALLY like Merrick's re-sealing strip as it actually really seals well and easily! I'd give them a 5 star rating on that portion!

  • The very best

    By on

    This is by far the very best for my cats! The portions are the perfect size and it's safe for my cats. My 15 year old cat has had a significant increase in her vitality.

  • My Cats Tried To Rip The Bag Open

    By on

    Purrfect Bistro is awesome. Kitties loved the chicken flavor, but didn't like the real salmon recipe at all - they went on a hunger strike, no joke. I ordered Healthy Senior for my sweet little old lady, our 18-year old. Both she and the 8-year old were standing on the bag trying to get it open with their teeth! It's been three days and it looks like I may need to order another bag. It's a winner.
