  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Another good product

    By on

    Like all of their foods my cat loves this meal. I've probably tried all the food and treats this company makes. This one gets a 4.5/5 for me because it's great quality and my cat goes crazy for it but it is so very messy! This only becomes a problem for me because i have my cat on the road with me all the time so I don't like cleaning the mess. Also the packaging is a little excessive. But these are definitely besides the point that my cat goes nuts for this food and it fits her raw diet.

  • My Cats love this food!!

    By on

    My Cats are extremely picky and they love this food, I always mix it with water to make it soft. Excellent product, great ingredients, one of my cats had to use prescription food but I didn’t like that food. I did a lot of research and replace his food with Vital Essentials, he is doing great with this food, so I’m really happy.

  • 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.

  • 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. That being said, I will be continuing to purchase I decided to try this for my 4 elderly cats to add something higher quality to their diets along with their regular wet food.

  • Tripper is in love with this food!!!!!!!!

    By on

    Tripper is 15 yrs old. She is 100% dry food addict until now. I have been trying for 3+ years to get her off dry food when I learned from my inherited diabetic cat how bad dry food is for them. I have tried all brands of wet food and she would not eat it or she would get sick. There is only one flavor of one brand she will only lick which isn't enough to sustain her. I can not purchase this food at any place in a 100 mile radius. So when Chewy's started having it, I purchased the turkey patties. Tripper has been devouring it. She begs for it at breakfast time and turns her nose up and sometimes walks away from her other beef food. She helps me (by sitting on my feet) when I add the warm water Tripper is 15 yrs old.

And best of all she is off dry food. … more

  • Great product loved by my two cats

    By on

    Both my cats (one is particularly picky) like this best crumbled and not rehydrated. Very easy to break apart. I store in the refrigerator. This is a bedtime snack so they can eat some during the night. Daytime meals are raw chunked meat/organ and raw ground food mixed with some canned food (for the picky cat still slightly hesitant about raw food). I originally purchased the mini nibs and decided to try the patties. These are definitely not as dense/hard as the mini nibs, much more airy. Both cats are happy with the mini nibs as well.

  • 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.
