Anyone use honest kitchen?

I've tried it for my dogs, and they adore it, and I was thinking of using it for the cats. I'm tring to do more canned/wet food for them, since reading about it being good for their kidneys, etc. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this.

Never heard of it, but I looked it up and it looks like an interesting option. There's certainly nothing really bad in it...

Nothing really bad? Does that mean there's something "just a little bad". I don't know as much about feline nutrition as canine, so I want to check with ppl who know more before I switch over

Hormone-free chicken, eggs, potatoes, yams, flaxseed, zucchini, spinach, honey, cranberries, rosemary, vitamins and minerals (tricalcium phosphate, choline chloride, zinc amino acid chelate, vitamin D3 supplement, vitamin E supplement, potassium chloride, iron amino acid chelate, copper amino acid chelate)

The items I've bolded are not really necessary in a cat's diet, but in small quantities they have a purpose...cranberry for urinary health, flaxseed is a source of Omega-3s etc.

They other thing that I'm not so sure about is their claim that the don't need to add taurine. But they do claim to meet AAFCO nutritional requirements.
Did you know that there is so much real meat in our diets that the taurine level is naturally high enough that we never have to supplement it in our vitamin premix?

Ok, thanks a lot for the info. I think I might rotate the honest kitchen in with my other wet meals I've been giving. I'm glad it's working for other peoples cats too.

Re: Anyone use honest kitchen?

Taurine is a very very important part of a cats diet. With out it they can have heart failure. If the meat they are using in the canned food is the thigh, leg or heart then they may be getting much required taurine. Does it happen to tell what part of the chicken they are using? Please read the article below about processed food and taurine....

I think any grain free canned food would be okay for your cat. I myself would be very weary of this product without taurine.

Re: Anyone use honest kitchen?

they also sell this unusual ice cube additive cat treat
http://www.thehonestkitchen.com/products/ice_pups.shtml
can we get any testimonials here of cats liking ice?
do they lick or try to chew/bite ice.
I'm a bit concerned for their teeth.
