    Kitten Loves This

    By HokeyMom on Feb 10, 2021

    Our two older cats won't touch this unless it's re-hydrated and mixed with their wet food, but our kitten loves the dry patty broken into small pieces and prefers it to his kibble. I'm giving it five stars for the little guy, but I wouldn't buy it just for the two fussy eaters.

    Mini Chicken patties

    By masterredfox on Nov 7, 2020

    I decided to try these for my cat since he liked the freeze-dried version by another brand which is not available anymore. These smell the same but are softer in feel and can be broken down with your hands to almost a powder to put over whatever food you serve the cat whether dry or wet.

    My cats favorite

    By on

    My Bengal will only eat the chicken patties. He LOVES them. However he does not like them moistened so I break them up and he eats them dry. I make sure to have a running water fountain so he gets enough water. I hope they never stop making these because I don’t think my Mylo will ever eat anything else.

    Mom is trying to poison us!

    If there was a way to say -5 stars, Sherlock would say it. It was a definite paws down. He sniffed it, and backed away as if it was sauerkraut! Isis stuck his nose in it and sniffed a couple times then headed for his dry food dish as if to say you've got to be kidding! La la wouldn't even go close to it. she circled it like it was going to attack her. This was definitely a mistake. We will stick to canned food!

    Both topaz and Hidey really like this vital freeze dried chicken. Every time I put it in front of them it’s all gone in two minutes!

    Zoey gives 5 paws!

    My cat is almost 8 years old. We just lost her brother to kidney failure. They ate mainly Fancy Feast canned and free fed Kirkland dry kibble. After doing a lot of research, I learned that raw is best. I ordered some different options. This was the 3rd option. They take a bit to rehydrate even after breaking it up, so i decided to feed one patty broken up into little pieces dry. She loved it! The next morning I fed her the rehydrated one, and she gobbled it up. She's never finished a meal so quickly. I'm feeling horrible that I fed them Fancy Feast for so long. Maybe we would still have her brother if I would've started them on raw from the start. I'm going to order the turkey and duck My cat is almost 8 years old.

I mentioned this was the 3rd option of raw food we tried. The first was Instinct freeze-dried which she liked dry but not rehydrated. It's way too expensive. The 2nd was Instinct frozen, and she absolutely hated it. Took one whiff and walked away. … more

    I crumble this up and put it on top of my cats wet food. I have 5 and they all love it.

    No go for us

    My cat has had chronic GI issues for months and we’ve been trying to find a food to resolve it. I was hoping she would like this raw food but she turned up her nose at it - even my other cat, who eats anything, didn’t want to eat it. She did like a different brand of raw, though.
