  • Questionable flavor

    By on

    While I'm sure Merrick has good quality ingredients and I certainly do like their canned food, this particular flavor didn't suit my cats. One is not particularly finicky and even he didn't care for the flavor after a few days. He would wait until he was really hungry before touching the food. When I mixed it with a different brand he liked, he would eat the other brand first before eating the salmon Merrick. My pickier cat has stopped eating it altogether. Other cats may like it though.

  • 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

  • This might be too good...

    By on

    My cat LOVES this food, and that might not be such a good thing! He BEGS for more, even though we know it's not because he is still hungry, lol! And with a Siamese cat, the "begging" is very loud! Thanks a lot, Merrick, for making a healthy food for my pet that tastes way too delicious!

  • Quality kitty food

    By on

    The ingredients in this cat food are of higher quality then most, however, my cats are very fussy and aren't eating it that well. I think they don't like the real small kibble shape as other cat foods that are this small were frowned upon by them, the same way this one is!

  • Cats love it and poo doesn’t stink

    By on

    My cats love it! One who is a picky eater gobbles it up and starts voicing her need to be fed when she hears the bag open! Bonus to the all benefits is their litter box doesn’t smell as bad, if you know what I mean. Great price. Great quality and cats love it.

  • Awesome Choice for finicky Cats

    By on

    All 3 of my cats have a VERY hard time finding a kibble that they like, but as soon as we switched to this recipe they devoured the bowls as if they haven't eaten in years! Great choice (at least for my cats) if you're looking for a new food.

  • Will be a return buyer

    By on

    Bought this because I wanted to switch cats off of Blue Buffalo. They had no problems with the switch. In the two weeks of them eating it, I have noticed way more energy and playful behaviors. I will now be switching the dogs the dogs food too!
