Our cat is a real meat eater.

She is 12 years old and loves her freeze dried meat. I have been buying her both freeze dried and canned. She prefers freeze dried to the canned. But, since she is so sweet I like to give her variety treating her like a human being, I guess. Anyway she loves this.

Cats LOVE this!

I have a foster cat who has major stomach issues and cannot eat wet food as he's allergic to something that I can't figure out. I decided to try a freeze-dried food and come across Vital Cat (which is made in USA - big plus) and he's doing great now! All of my foster cats love this freeze dried food - especially the PORK! LOVE LOVE LOVE

I try to look for affordable food for my cretins. Vital Essentials is one of the best quality raw (based on human grade and/or ingredients) cat food. Expensive, but it's just an alternative when the cretins demand variety.

Rejected by 4 cats

It is honestly impressive that someone, somehow, managed to make a food that none of my 4 cats will eat. And they are not particularly picky eaters. They transition easily between canned brands, kibble, commercial raw food, and home made raw food. VitalCat though? Not even a nibble.

Interesting Food!

This is unlike other food I've tried, but it worked well for a cat recovering from a hospital stay. He wouldn't eat our regular food, but liked this.

I have ordered multiple packages of this product and in this order, both bags have patties so dark they look like they have seasoning. Some patties are normal in the package but since this is raw food I don't feel comfortable feeding this to my cats. Not to mention half of the patties were broken on arrival anyway.

Well liked

This is a great raw diet for the kitties. I have a cat that has to be on raw diet but is a slow eater. I can put this out dry in a dish between fresh meals or rehydrate for a full meal. Limited ingredients is important with his health issues and this fits for him. He can be picky however he likes this quite well.

Not bad, but not for us!

I typically get the turkey version, which the cats love, and thought I'd get this for a little variety, but it was not a winner. Seems just a high-quality as the turkey, but just not a flavor my cats are interested in. For ref: they also quite like the rabbit and duck.
