  • Miss Picky didn't like it till we went raw

    By on

    I bought this in anticipation of moving my kitty (8.5#) to a raw diet like the dogs. While she was still on her regular dry and canned wet kitty food, she turned her nose up at this stuff. I thought I was going to have to give it to my sons who have 3 cats between them, to try. It took me two weeks to trasition Ms Kitty to a raw diet and once I went back and tried this again she loves this stuff. (we are using a frozen raw and I am adding little bits of this on the side so she can graze during the day) She seems to like it dry rather than re-hydrated. I am making sure there is plenty of fresh water for her but no issues so far. I'm glad she likes it cuz it give me more options when we are I bought this in anticipation of moving my kitty (8.5#) to a raw diet like the dogs.

I have a vaccum food sealer and I have separated the package into different portions so it will stay fresh. … more

  • GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE!

    By on

    My 2 cats literally sucked this up....they LOVE it! It's easy to serve, just break it up into smaller pieces, add a little water and voila....ready to eat! My only complaint is that it doesn't come in a larger size option and I wish there was a lamb flavor, a beef or beef and liver. I might try the rabbit and duck but I'd love to see it available in more flavors!

  • Fresher Package

    By on

    I liked how this brand is limited to only meat, organ meats and bone who doesn’t add fruits & vegs like all other top Raw commercial diets. Recently however there is a problem with all the flavors in both dogs and cats in bag form. Very strong plastic smell right after opening a new bag too many times to count for a while now. Disappointed! Also recent recall. This box form is the only thing that seems to keep it normal like it use to. Won’t be buying if this also starting to smell again.

  • Picky cat approves so far

    By on

    I bought these to be able to leave out pieces overnight since my cat no longer free feeds/eats dry food. I don't rehydrate this because he gets plenty of wet food during the day and seems to prefer crunchy treats. He devours this when I give it to him. The consistency is so much better than the nibs. My cat initially loved the rabbit nibs, but then changed his mind. Hopefully he continues to love this.

  • No fillers

    By on

    Patties are convenient as a poised to measuring out my cats' food. I love that this is 100% animal ingredients without any plant or grain fillers like some other freeze dried cat foods. It also has goat milk which is supposed to help prevent digestive upset when transitioning cats to a new diet. My cats are still getting used to being on a raw diet, but they seem to like the taste overall.

  • All 4 of my cats loved it!

    By on

    I decided to try this for my 4 elderly cats to add something higher quality to their diets along with their regular wet food. Normally at least one or two will turn their nose up at anything new offered to them, but all 4 attacked their dishes for the turkey formula. They have continued to show their enthusiasm each time it's offered, going on 2 weeks now, so I'm pretty sure we have a winner. I rehydrate it in the dishes, then give it to them. I plan on trying the other flavor options for them as well in order to keep giving some variety. my only complaint is that it's pretty expensive to feed it as the sole food source to 1 cat, let alone 4.

  • My picky cat LOVES it

    By on

    My older cat is very picky, I really thought my younger cat would be the one that would eat but it was opposite. My older cat, the one I wanted to buy it for, she's old and I am trying to spoil her a bit, LOVES it and cries for it nightly. Thanks!

  • My cats love it!!!

    By on

    We've tried the chicken, turkey, and duck and all are huge hits with the babies. They actually like it better "as is" rather than reconstituted. Great ingredients, a purr-fect food for my obligate carnivores. Highly recommend.

  • Cats Don't Care For It

    By on

    I feel like this is a good quality food and convenient if you're wanting to feed raw. Only one of my 3 cats would eat any of it though.The one cat will take a few bites then walk away without finishing it. 2 of my 3 did like the duck variety though.

  • FINALLY Found One She'll Eat!

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I have a senior cat that we are transitioning away from kibble and having her on a canned diet is just not economically doable for us so we decided on a raw diet. We tried frozen raw, fresh raw, etc. and I think I bought just about one of everything Chewy has. We FINALLY found the answer with the Vital Essentials Freeze Dried Turkey Mini Patties. I feed them dry and she gobbles them right up and even asks for seconds! In fact, even the pickiest cat of the 8 we have likes them (which is amazing in and of itself). We are still working our way through all of the other types we bought but once we get through them the Vital Essentials will be the ones we buy and perhaps we'll even try a few of the I have a senior cat that we are transitioning away from kibble and having her on a canned diet is just not economically doable for us so we decided on a raw diet.
