    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat loves this food! My cat was a feral/stray cat who visited my yard to hang out at the bird feeding station three years ago. He was a great hunter of birds and bunnies. Over the months as I went through the proper channels of having him trapped, examined and neutered, he was released back into my yard. Our vet recommended I start him on a raw food diet. The first bag I purchased was rabbit as I knew this would be a familiar taste to him. He took right to it. I noticed he never supplemented his diet with drinking water. I decided to microwave a couple tablespoons of water in the saucer first, then mash the raw bites into it. It takes the chill out of the raw meat, brings out the flavor, and my cat loved it more. Because my cat loves to eat, I divide the one cup portion into four servings during the day, and so far he seems to be getting the water he needs, especially for a male cat, however he always has a fresh water bowl. Benefits of this raw diet that I have found with my cat: stools became firmer as the vet said would happen; stool odor 'greatly' decreased; the cat has remained very, very healthy; he's happy, alert and content. Suggestion: if your cat is currently addicted to one of the 'junk food' cat foods (as our vet calls them), then try a slow transitioning to healthier brands until you can finally introduce the frozen raw meat diet. Even if it takes a year, it will be worth it to your cats health in the long run. Good luck!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to serve I like that I don't have to leave this in the fridge to thaw out for hours before I give it to my cat. She LOVED it the first time I gave it to her and won't stop begging for more food. My cat has never been picky about food so unfortunately I can't say how appetizing this would be for people who have pickier cats, but I do know that you can heat the food with a little warm water to help bring out the smell. The smell is what makes it appealing to cats. The food almost turn into a pate when it thaws out it's weird but my cat tends to scarf her food down without chewing so this is a good thing for her!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cats won't eat it Cats refuse to eat it. Not even one single nugget mashed up in their favorite cat food after making them abstain from wet food for two days. I don't necessarily blame them, it smells like play-doh. All three cats addicted to Purina garbage, and have garbage gut as a result. Need to make this appetizing somehow.
