    The price is right for such a large bag of grain free. So many times “grain free” equals “you can’t afford it” but I was surprised! Unfortunately, I believe our 2 cats are snobs when it comes to food. They literally leave the bowls of food sitting for days. We give them soft food for dinner and they would refuse to eat the dry. They have always noshed on their dry food throughout the day. Not with this food. I actually had to combine this bag with another bag I bought so it wouldn’t get wasted. Maybe they just don’t like the flavor. Who knows? They won’t tell me.

  • my kittens love it!

    By on

    I have not had kittens since the 1990's and I never realized how finicky they are about food ... but they love this food. The ingredients have deboned chicken as the #1 ingredient so I feel confident that I am feeding my kittens well. There are no fillers such as corn meal, soybean meal or wheat gluten. Protein is 41% which is higher than commercial grocery store brands. I feel confident that I am feeding my sweet Hadrian and Oscar excellent food that will help them develop and live healthy lives.

  • Awesome for Kitty

    By on

    My kitty likes this food and I am happy to have her eating a food that has good ingredients, including a higher protein level than most kitten recipes contain.The bag has a unique sealable top that works similar to Velcro so it's easy to close and the food will stay fresh longer. The price is pretty good and shipping with Chewy was fast. I would definitely recommend this food.

  • Good & Small

    By on

    The pieces are nice and small for kittens. My kitten seemed to like it a lot at first, but now is acting a little contrary. However, my 18 yr. old cat keeps trying to steal it from the kitten and of course the kitten wants to steal his food. So I think it has just turned into a game.

  • Angel likes it. . . that's all that matters.

    By on

    Angel is a rescue kitten found in a box in the park one chilly morning. He is the only one of four kittens that survived the night apparently. . . my friend buried his siblings and brought Angel to me to care for. This was Angel's first dry food and he really likes it. He also eats the Merrick wet food for kittens. He's frisky, growing, and affectionate.

  • My kitties love this food!

    By on

    I recently tried this food for my new Siamese kitten. I have to hide it from him or he will tear through the bag to eat it when I'm not around (he is not wasting away by any means!)

  • Kitten loves it, ingredients look good

    By on

    We just rescued a kitten from the street, and he's in a cage in the building with our other foster cats - adults. When we let him out, it's a stream of cats trying to bully their way into the cage to grab this kibble. And the kitten loves it! He was malnourished when we found him, but he's packing on the ounces!

  • 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.
