  • Amazing ingredients, but unappetizing

    By on

    I take my time in researching my cat food. I look for high protein and high fat for my kitten, who will eat almost anything you put in his face, and this fits the bill. The ingredients seem high quality, and it looks like a very nutrient dense food, however the consistency/look of it is awful. It looks like mostly digested barf, with small chunks of peas and vegetables. It has a very watery consistency, more like pea soup than a pate loaf. The kitten is very hesitant to eat it, and will gladly take any other wet food put down over this. I will finish the 12 pack I purchased, but I would not buy again, the consistency is so watery that it causes wet stools as the kitten has to lap it up rather I take my time in researching my cat food.

  • Kitten goes crazy for it!

    By on

    I continued this wet food with my kitten after I got him from the breeder. He absolutely loves it! He will even lick his plate clean. I've let him try just about all flavors and lamb is the only one he doesn't like. Gave him chicken again and he inhaled it. You can see the veggies in it, and it has a good amount of sauce/liquid/moisture. Kitten approved!

  • More than the label changed

    By on

    The ingredients on the manufacturer website are not the same as those on the newly labeled can. Although most things only moved up/down in weight, note that choline chloride went way up the list and Menhaden fish oil was added. More protein and fat in the guaranteed analysis but fewer calories per can? Hmm.

  • Highly recommend

    Just started testing adult foods for our 8 month old kitten. This one is a hit. No carrageenan, minimal fillers, and minimal gums. This cat is picky, refuses anything but pate, and hates fish and most red meats. I will say that we had to go with the small cans, as she won't eat this brand reheated, so the large cans are a waste, as she only gets half a can at a meal. Nice soft texture, moist but not soupy. And it doesn't smell horrible either. We'll keep buying at long as she keeps eating it! For referance, she was eating Whole Earth Farms kitten recipe, but does not like any of their adult foods. She also has turned her nose up at Wellness, Canidae and Merrick, in the carrageenan free varieties Just started testing adult foods for our 8 month old kitten. This one is a hit.

  • Great for All Ages

    By on

    My cats range from 3 months to 18 years and I’m happy they can all eat the same food. I rotate a few brands but this is the current favorite of all (tied with Wellness Core Chicken, Turkey & Chicken Liver). Even my picky cat who sometimes refuses to eat canned food loves this one.

  • great & TASTY fodd!

    By on

    all of my cats love it- I decided to go ALL GRAIN FREE because my cats are now all adults & I measure their food so they do not get overweight & end up with health problems. I heard that with grain free we can avoid the 'extra carbs' that could cause weight gain....And They Love It! (& CATS ARE TRUE CARNIVORES & NEED MEAT!)

  • I can see the peas and carrot!

    By on

    The paté is very soft and moist, more so than paté that humans consume. I can see the vegetables in the meal. All three cats love the chicken flavor and eat their portion in one sitting.

  • Not my cat's favorite

    By on

    The ingredients look great. I just wish my cat's looked it more. For the price, I really don't like seeing food wasted.
