I bought some for Bootsie, and she's eating it just as lovingly as she used to eat her crunchies before I took her off of them. They look like ground sausage. Lol. Anyone have any opinions of it? I think I'll be keeping it into the mix. It's only $6.99 at my work and the bag is a pound. I do get 20% off, though. Price wise it's a nice little addition to her diet at saving me about 50 cents a day when I add this as a meal (she gets 3 meals a day, 2oz a meal).

I looked on their web site and maybe I'm blind but I didn't find much information on their Vital cat food. Lots and lots and lots about dog food.

Yup, I sent them an email asking if they had ANY cat food that doesn't contain Chicken/Turkey. Booo!!!

~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you for your interest in Fresh Pet.

We do not have a product which fits that criterion. All of our cat food products have poultry.

I've had this in rotation for the last 2 months now - our store only carries the chicken w/ carrots & spinach. Both of my furmonsters love it! Another friend also has started feeding it to her 4 since she can't stomach the mushy food and the price of this is pretty fantastic.

Seeing as I'm still learning... why isn't it good there is only chicken?

I'm guessing that chicken isn't the best source of protein perhaps? :)

'Cause my guy is allergic to chicken and Turkey. Makes hiim scratch himself bald and he digs in his ears until they are infected.

It's hard to find an affordable chicken free, turkey free AND grain free wet food.

Oh, so sorry to hear this! :(

A cat allergic to chicken is like me allergic to chocolate.

That's a bummer allergy for your baby to have...you have my condolences. :(

Just picked this up for my picky kitties and Cody wouldn't touch it. Aster nibbled and left. :( I was hoping it would be a nice change for them but no luck here.

I had seen commercials for fresh pet (not vital, I think it was selects or something) and always wondered if it was any good. My biggest turn off was that my grocery store sells it which automatically puts me on guard. But those ingredients look good to me...

I was interested to read about this too, although ocean whitefish being the third ingredient takes it out of the running to give Murphy. I'm pretty sure he's allergic to fish. The last time I gave him some, he sneezed badly for several days.
