I ordered these because my picky cat, ZZ, loved the freeze-dried patty's but they tended to be messy. I thought these crunchies would be more functional. I was wrong, he stuck his nose up and walked away from them. Guess I'm back to the patty's.
My cat won't eat it

My cat is not picky. He will eat anything but he will not eat this. I tried to soak it but it does not absorb water.

My cat is not very picky. She loves S&C freeze-dried food. But for this one, she sniffs, licks, and walks away.
Excellent Product - Cats gobble it up!
on Mar 18, 2021
I have been trying to find a high-quality low-ingredient food/treat to supplement their wet food. They turn their noses at every grain free, ethically sourced type of treat I find for them. I decided to give this one a try and to my surprise they loved it! I give them a small amount each day to supplement their diet and they think they're getting treats. :) Bye Bye junk-treats.
Cats Hate, but...
on Feb 9, 2021
My cats had zero interest in this food even though they love the topper by the same brand with very similar ingredients. This food gets 5 stars for ingredients, Chewy gets 5 stars for delivery, but the nibs are just not a typical form I expect to see for cat food, even raw brands. They cannot be rehydrated, and are even crunchier than many dry foods. I would love to get my cats on a better food, especially since the only foods they have liked since I adopted them several years ago have been discontinued and/or radically lowered in quality while increasing in price. They are adults so they came to me set in their ways. Although this bag is more expensive, it was cheaper than the patties per poundMy cats had zero interest in this food even though they love the topper by the same brand with very similar ingredients.

They are adults so they came to me set in their ways. Although this bag is more expensive, it was cheaper than the patties per pound and I assumed it was the same food but different form. Totally my mistake. Although we still have not tried the patties (and I hear they don't ship well) they can be rehydrated just like the topper, wheras these, obviously cannot. So, this was not the choice for my cats new food. The ingredients are amazing and if your cat likes hard, crunchy nibs the ingredients are great so this could be the food for you. Just don't buy this hoping to rehydrate.… more
They gobble em up
on Feb 15, 2021
I was previously feeding Temptations brand to my cats and I swear you think it was crack the addiction was off the charts they would literally scream at me on a daily basis to feed it to them. So what I’ve done is switch to this brand which is a much healthier option and they gobble it up just the same so I would definitely go this route it is a little more pricey but it is worth it because there are ingredients in the other brands that are just not good for your pet.
Ferrets love this
on Apr 18, 2021
Bought this for my son's ferrets. Supposed to be the best food to feed a ferret. Well, they love it. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.
My kittens’ fave so far
on Feb 25, 2021
I think this may be my 6 month old kittens’ favorite food. They’ll even attempt “tricks” for them. They’ve tried a lot of freeze dried raw, raw sprayed and frozen raw foods over the past few months and they like a lot of them, but they love this one. Definitely one to keep in their rotation.
My Cat's Favorite
on Jan 31, 2021
This is by far, my cat's favorite food. I feed this as his morning meal. He is more excited to eat this than any wet food I have given him for his dinner. This is a much better option than traditional dry food. The crunch keeps his teeth clean and the ingredients are very high quality. This is a great company.
Fixed my cats allergies and urinary crystals
on Feb 16, 2021
My cats are older and were on prescription food for allergies and urinary crystals. I switched them to Vital Essentials and they not only love the food their allergies are gone and so are their urinary crystals.
