  • They won’t eat it

    By on

    Unfortunately my orange tabby didn’t like this food at all. I mixed it with the current food to make a smooth transition as I always do with a new food, and she would only eat her current food and leave the new one in the bowl. I even tried offering it to my other cat, who doesn’t need this food, and he did the same. Then I tried the old trick of mixing it with canned food, they ate around it and left the pellets. my cats are not really picky, We have a kitten and they steal his food sometimes.

  • Cats love this food!

    By on

    I had been looking for a healthy weight food for my cats that was grain free, high protein, and low fat. This food fits all those criteria the best I found! It had the lowest fat out of any of the grain free foods I looked at. I wasn't sure how my cats would take to it but as soon as I gave it to them the first time they both ate the whole serving! It's their favorite food now! Also after giving this food for a month I notice that my boy looks a little bit trimmer and I think it's due to this food!

    Best food I ever purchased. You have to be very careful about food products, first they say 100percent natural, yes corn rice gluten etc is all natural AFCO has a very low standard. merrik Bistro weight control, the change over went great for all my cats. Stool is better energy and the $ price. I have always feed my cats with my food left down, actually with food down my cats eat less and eat muoh less they know the food is always down. Thanks merrik !!

  • She likes it.

    By on

    I feed mainly wet, but I always keep some dry available for my cat. She is a little 'plump,' so I hoped she'd eat this 'healthy weight' food. She is incredibly 'picky' about her food, but she seems to like this, so it's now a staple here.

  • Abigail's Delight

    By on

    I finally found a dry food Abby likes! She is unable to eat the commercial brands and she picked over a couple of the healthy brands. She loves her wet food with texture so this was a great fit. She will even eat it dry!

  • Great product for older cats

    By on

    Liked the product as it is the right prescription for senior cats who are putting on weight. My only complaint is the bag doesn't have an easy open & close tab on it. to reseal the bag once it is opened.

  • Love at first bite

    By on

    I started one of my cats on a diabetic food, and I guess it tastes amazing because my big boy decided he should be eating too. After some pretty intense battles, we looked for some better food for him. The day we got Merrick's the fighting stopped. He actually prefers it to the cans of soft food. Super cool.

  • Fat Cat Loves It!

    By on

    I have a big ol 14lb fat tabby who is on a diet. She LOVES this food, and it makes me feel good to know it's good for her too. We just started it, so I can't say much as far as weight control (yet) but she's not complaining about the taste. :)
