My cats love raw, and like Stella & chewy, but they will not touch sojos to save their life. 5 days I tried, nothing but this, and they just licked up and juice I paired with it in a desperate attempt to get them to eat.
I got this for my four wonderful cats as I was recently told by a vet to switch to raw. I bought this and ziwi so I would have options in case one of the cats didn’t like it. Well all 4 won’t eat this food and that’s because the first day fed they ate a small amount and then began vomiting all over the house. I took my one cat who was the worst off and had her hospitalized due to dehydration. 2 of my cats have lost too much weight and so I had to stop trying to feed it as the cats would rather starve then eat this food. If I could give zero stars I would the ziwi works just fine but now I will have to try and find another raw the cats like hopefully they don’t have lasting issues from this food.
Sojo's is a wonderful food! I used to feed frozen raw to my cats, but had to switch after my senior girl got constipated from it. She does well on Sojos, and I think this is because there is more fiber in it. It is so much more economical than canned foods, especially in multi-cat households! All three of my cats will eat Sojos, but they typically pick out the meat chunks, leaving some of the larger veggie pieces behind. Also, I soak for over an hour before feeding--the recommended 15 minutes doesn't seem like enough time. I rated Sojos with four stars only because if given the choice, they would pick their Honest Kitchen over Sojos.
As the title says. Seems very fruit n veg, with big chunks of dehydrated meat that don’t fully soften and I soaked overnight in warm/hot water. Maybe for a dog, cats steals tried to like this one
This food has potential to be a premium brand, but there are too many unnecessary ingredients here. My cat eats the turkey but leaves all the other stuff on the plate. No need for blueberries and other weird stuff that sounds healthy to us humans but has zero nutritional value for cats and aren't even tasty to them. All cats need is meat, moisture, and minimal essential supplementation. There are plenty other brands on the market that offer that and render Sojos pretty worthless in my opinion. I'd gladly buy this again if they drop all the filler though as my girl really did seem to enjoy the meat part. Sojos, if you read this please take note!
I bought this food by mistake. I usually am very careful about looking at ingredients and choosing healthy options. I decided to feed it to my cat to try it and it would be something different for her. Well as a result she starting scratching and licking her face so much that bald patches developed and were red. After discontinuing the food she stopped scratching and licking so much and her face is starting to heal. Also, there is barely any meat in this food. It's all fruits and vegetables which cats do not need.
Great food and I like that it has veggies in it. If you read Dr Karen Becker cats need greens. Yes they are carnivores but they need more than just meat. That’s why you will see cats eat grasses and plants.
I really wanted this food to work. I liked the price and the quality of the ingredients, as I am looking for a mostly whole raw foods for my cats. My cats are on Stella and Chewy and I wanted to try and find something that could serve as a filler or an extender to Stella and Chewy to alleviate some of the cost. My cats are not picky eaters, they will pretty much eat anything. They are the kind of cats that don’t have to be weaned slowly onto a food, even though I do it anyway. At first they would eat around a lot of the bigger chunks in the food and leave all the vegetables, I thought this was because the food took a really long time to rehydrate and in some cases never rehydrated. I tried food processing the entire bag to make it into a fine powder or as fine a powder as I could and this seem to help, but they were still not super enthusiastic. We tried this food for three months, the last month both cats have left food in their bowls (especially pumpkin and celery bits), to the point where one of the cats won’t eat or licks a few bites and then spends the rest of the day leading me back to the food bowls and asking for food but he won’t eat the food that’s in it. If I give him just plain Stella and Chewy he licks the bowl clean. So we are back on the hunt for a good solid raw whole food and cost effective way to extend Stella and Chewy.
NO CAT FOOD SHOULD CONTAIN ANYTHING BUT MEAT OR VITAMINS AND SUPPLEMENTS nearly everything on cheesy list of “healthy” foods are packed with VEGGIES. Ugh. Stop doing this to cat’s, they are not dogs they do NOT need vegetables and they are used for fillers!
Like so many other cat owners, I have to say this missed the mark. My cat isn't picky at all, and he'll eat some of it but does not lick the bowl clean as usual. My dog, on the other hand, enjoys her Sojos very much.
