They've changed the texture Instead of soft "meatballs" in gravy it is more of a rough chop. Doesn't change the same great taste apparently, always a clean plate. Thank goodness for a non-fish option to give my chicken allergic boys some variety in their life! Thank you Merrick.
After fifteen months of not being able to get this food there is peace and purring in my home. It is expensive but it is the ONLY one all three of them like. Especially my little Lucia, who is the light of my life. No more barf. No more diarrhea. Happy kitties.
I'd been buying the chicken flavor of this brand for about 6 months when my cats stopped eating it. So I decided to try this. It smelled awful and, as you may guess, they refused to go near it. I switched to Tiki Cat, which I feel much better about all around (plus they love it). As for this stuff... I ended up donating it to a local shelter.
I have purchased this product prior from our local pet supply but purchased the pate and didn't have any issues. I have a cat with anemia issues and wanted something higher in iron and they suggested this. However I now ordered the morsels and gravy and each can I open I find either just gravy and no morsels or gravy with a few pieces of morsels. One out of every 4 cans I will have a good or normal amount of morsels in it. Sometimes the can is even 1/2 full. Very disappointing for the amount of money it cost.
Although the company denies changing the recipe, SOMETHING is different -- after 9 years of eating this (and only this) flavor, my cat suddenly refused it. We thought maybe something was wrong with her, but we found another brand (Tiny Tiger) that has a similar beef -chunks-in-gravy and she laps it up.
This should get no stars!! I will never buy the small cans again. I'm now seeing the same as other reviews here....more than half the can is gravy! My cats are nor happy either. I have bought the large cans in the past and very happy with contents.I also noticed the label is not red any more, slightly pinkish, that should have told me something changed as well. I was hoping the next can in the case would contain mostly food, but so far each one is more gravy. My cats eat a lot of different Merrick foods love Merrick. I am willing to pay more money for higher quality cat food but there actually needs to be food in the can. I bought 2 cases since my cats love this version. Stupid me! What a huge disappointment. Now I see it is totally out of stock, I wonder why! I want half my money back as I didn't buy this to feed my cats gravy!! Please credit my account for half.
I love Merrick and have fed it to my cat over a year now. Normally I buy the larger cans at one of my local stores but decided to save some money and Buy it from chewy. They did not have the large cans available in the morsels so I bought the smaller cans in a large pack. Six or seven of the cans we’re only about half full and just with liquid (see pictures). I have never had that happen to me when I have purchased them in store. Willing to pay more for a higher quality brand cat food but this is very disappointing. Seems like there’s an issue with the production of the small cans.
This food is not consistent. It even smelled different. Last time i purchased all my cats enjoyed it but this batch three of my four took one smell and tried to bury it. Also a few of the cans were only gravy , no food. Will not purchase again.
I ordered a case of the Cowboy cookout because my cat like the flavor. It is so not worth the money. So far I have opened three cans. Two of the three were only half full. At $30 a case, I expect a full can of food.
My cat does somewhat enjoy this food, she is quite picky but she will usually eat these cans. However, I've noticed a serious lack in quality control. A handful of the cans in my last box were at least half empty, some were pretty much only gravy. I pay for the guaranteed weight on the cans and that's what my cat needs, so it's disappointing when that's not what I get in the product.
