My cat took to this food easily though I mixed it with his usual food at first and gradually weened him off of his usual brand(contained grain). In about a week he was off the other kibble and happily is into this one now. Grain free is gluten free, better for his health/digestion. And, the food is naturally preserved. It would have been nutritionally better to me if the vitamins/minerals were chelated, but overall this is a winner and will buy again.
My Cats aren't especially fond of this food, unfortunately, but I think it's far better than the wheat-based foods otherwise available, and they have been eating it (begrudgingly). The food doesn't crumble, have an unwelcome odour, or seem especially difficult for them to chew. I'll be continuing with it for a few more goes, to see if they come around on the taste.
I went from Orijen at my local shop and thought I'd give this one a try. Unfortunately, my cat doesn't like this as much, so he'll only eat when I don't respond to his meows for new food. It's been about a month and I've tried to mix in some friskies food and he'll only eat the friskies without complaint and leave the Holistic Blend behind. The weird thing is that he's not a particularly picky eater and will eat just about anything. He's well accustomed to high protien cat food (Orijen, Merrik's Before Grain, Halo, Blue Buffalo), but something in this cat food just rubs him the wrong way.
My cats love this food, and it is a great price for a grain-free kibble. If your cat is new to grain-free, make sure you have some regular food to mix with it until they transition, the sudden jump in protein can cause tummy upsets and the richness will either turn them off or make them eat the whole bowl. It is also a Canadian company and with all the pet food recalls it is nice to know its made locally and not mass produced
