Simply Nourish™ Stew Adult Cat Food
I have a cat with food allergies, and he can only "tolerate" certain foods. He LOVES the Chicken Stew and Chicken and Duck Stew (since he can only have poultry we haven't tried the other flavors), and they don't cause him to have any type of reaction. I feel like he eats better than I do! According to my vet, however, the recommended 3 cans per 7 lbs. of cat is excessive. Talk to your own vet about portioning for your cat(s).
My main problem with this food is the packaging. It is extremely wasteful and unnecessary. I'm sure it causes the price to be higher, and it's quite inconvenient. The cans are not a standard size, and do not stack well when they are out of their cardboard sleeves. Please, Please, PLEASE, PetSmart, stop using this wasteful packaging and start using more efficient/mainstream ways of packaging this terrific food! Also, please stock more of this food in the stores. Many times I have only been able to get one or two cases (12 cans each) at a time.

If it was only made in the USA....
We had tried several foods with George and he is not picky at all, however with this one it seems that he is eating better than his daddy and I. He loves it!! Lip licking good according to him. Chicken and Duck stew being his favorite. I just wish that it was made in the USA.

My Cupcake loves it!
I have a very picky 11 year old that can't get enough of the chicken stew flavor. I switched her dry food to Simply Nourish but was hesitant to buy the canned food as she is very picky with the Canned diets. I'm glad I did. I can tell its chicken when I open the can and my picky eater likes it!!

Cats love it, but limited supply in stores
I tried this on a whim and my 3 cats love most of the flavors for the bisque and stew. They're not much on seafood in general, but they love the chicken varieties. The only reason why I won't switch over completely is because I can't find enough of it in stores and you can't order it online.
The instructions say 3 cans of food per 7 lbs of cat per day. Well I have 3 big (not fat) cats around 15 lbs each. So that's 6 cans a day! The most I can find in the store is a small carton of 12 cans. Unless they make bigger cans or make it available online, this is going to be an occasional treat.
I also concur with others that the packaging is wasteful. They don't need the cardboard wrapper and the can is non-standard size so it comes with its own plastic lid. Totally unnecessary; just make it a standard size. The can is also thicker than it needs to be. I'm sure all of this is one of the reasons that it's more expensive.
