Our picky cat LOVES this

Our cat loves this food so much. She has been eating it for over a year now. In the past our cat would love a new food and then get tired of it quickly. Leaving us with uneaten food which was frustrating. So this is a big win for us! And it’s full of good ingredients which makes us cat parents feel better.

all 3 cats like it

Working so far about to order another bag for my cats. They aren't super picky on dry food but they like it and their coats look good.

Great for picky cats

My younger of the 2 cats is very picky with what food he will eat and this is the only food that is sensitive to his stomach and he eats the whole bowl of food. He seems more exposed to eat and the first ingredient is actual food rather than the first item just being meal or preservatives. 10/10 would recommend!

This is my cats review since I didn't try it myself. Only 2 out of 6 sort of liked it. Gave the rest away.

Only food my cats will eat

I have tried so many different foods, and this is the one I always come back to. This is the only thing my all cats will eat, that doesn’t make them sick. They absolutely love it. This says a lot, because one of my cats is extremely picky!
