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.

  • Grain Free & Fish Free

    By on

    In addition to grain allergies, our 8 year old cat developed severe "fish" allergies in the past year. Most "non-fish" foods use "fish oil" in their formulas so its been very challenging in to find something she can eat safely. This blend is the only one that specifically states "fish free" in addition to grain-free. This is a high quality product and our cat LOVES IT - she's getting better everyday after just one week, and she walks away from any other wet or dry food we put down - so this is a 100% winner. If your cat is a picky eater and/or reacting to other foods, try this one.

  • My Car Does Not Like This

    By on

    I love my cat. We adopted her just a few months ago. Finding which foods she can tolerate has been a process. She really doesn't like this. If I leave it down all day, she will maybe pick at it. It's sad. I gave up and am feeding her leftovers of the last bag I tried that she likes a fraction more. I do like the Velcro seal on it. But, I ended up donating it because I'm sure it's a good food, just not up to Phoebe's standards.

    my 2 cats are now almost 15 years old, and I wanted a good cat food to keep them healthy. They are very finicky eaters, but both love this food. I will be reordering this for them!

    One of my cats has made a complete behavioral change for the better since starting on this food. She is now loving and calm, instead of crazy and wild.

  • Disappointed

    By on

    Kibble is super small. None of my 3 cats will eat this food. Disappointing. The ingredient list looked great for my diet controlled diabetic cat.

  • My cats love Merrick Bistro - like it's treat food

    By on

    I recently adopted 2 cats from a shelter after not having to purchase any cat food for over 3 years... wow... all the choices. I only want to feed my indoor-only cats to eat the very best natural foods to give them the best chance at healthy living. My vet loves the fact that they have 40% protein. They eat it up like treat food! I rotate between salmon and chicken for variety. Please continue stocking theses cat foods

  • Having some success

    By on

    I am attempting to switch my cats to grain free food. I am having limited success. I am still mixing their old dry food with this new grain free dry food to get them accustomed to it. They eat most of it, but still somehow manage to eat around it and eat only their old stuff & leave this one in the bowl. So, at this point I am uncertain about getting them completely converted over to new, grain free food. Stay tuned . . .

  • Seems okay...

    By on

    We ordered three different foods to replace the Fromm's my cats loved before. Although they will eat this occasionally, they usually gravitate to one of the other foods when a few are out. So my cats do eat it, but they are not crazy about it. The kibble is small like Fromm's. I haven't noticed any digestive issues, but my cats prefer both the Crave and the Instinct (and Fromm's that we still have left over)

  • None of my three cats will touch it

    By on

    If you like this food. I bought it for my cat who is his allergic to fish, as it is hard to find one without fish products. They barely ate it to start with, and I gave them plenty of time after that. As I had 3 bags of it, I brought it back later and tried it again, to no avail. They simply cannot stand it!
