Great idea, but needs more work

First off, I think what Honest Kitchen is doing is great.
But, I think they have some more work to do on the cat food.
The cats were just not interested.

So far, I have tried it three different times. (The box has a generous amount of food.)
I’ve made it thick, thinner and even tried adding it with a packet of their regular food.
As long as this was in their dish, they were on food strike.

I could see this being good for outdoor cats, but our indoor ones totally turned their
backs on it. Their favorite flavor is chicken, and I had hopes they would love it, but
they just don’t.

I have to give a lower star on this one. I even tried to give away the rest, and no one
wanted it. I ended up tossing it out – it was wasted.

Too expensive for a trial size

The 4 oz trial size is available for less cost directly at the Honest Kitchen website: […]

Why pay eight times the price or more for this trial size when its only one buck at Honest Kitchen?

Didn’t quite pass the taste test

Really wanted my cat to like this one, but it just didn’t work out.

I started the quest for new cat food whenever Wellness announced the change in the formulation of the Wellness Core Dry Food. I was very happy with the ingredients and the manufacturing methods for the Prowl (it’s made in a human grade processing facility), but my cat just didn’t seem to like the taste.

Preparation was simple, add warm water to rehydrate, wait one minute and serve.

Instant vomit

My cats were SO excited about the smell of this food, but eating it made them vomit instantly. I understand that you need to introduce new foods very carefully and gradually, so it wasn’t because I switched them over cold turkey. Even when they were getting only a dollop mixed with their typical food, the vomiting persisted with both cats. THK has worked well for our dog, but if it won’t stay down for more than 5 minutes, something is definitely wrong with the cat formula.

GREAT FOOD! Cats just take longer to adjust than dogs

This is the most healthy food you can buy, in my humble opinion. Many other products and kibbles get your cat addicted through artificial flavor enhancers. (Think of your teens exchanging ‘Ranch Doritos’ for Apple Chips. It takes time for their taste buds to adjust.)

When you get your cat off the flavor enhancers they will eat this. Just give it time and put out a little of this food every day. Maybe even drizzle this on the kibble! Experiment and eventually your cat can eat healthy! Most cats won’t even touch real chicken or fish because they are so addicted to the kibble. It is a fact that dry kibble dehydrates your cat. Cats on dry kibble eventually have problems with kidney disease, so soft wet food is always best (albeit, not always the easiest to get your cat to munch!)

Some Corrections

For those saying it doesn’t pass the taste test….

Try sprinkling parmesan cheese or fortiflora on top. Many cats take time to transition to a raw diet because it’s not as stinky as commercially made food. Sort of like how children prefer sugar cereal to something healthy like oatmeal. With time and patience any cat can be won over.

About the taurine content….

If you go to the honest kitchen website, you can take a look at the nutritional values. This product does contain an adequate amount of taurine.

Great Cat Food

Healthy food. Our Maine Coon kitten loves this food, which is a good thing, since she has been nearly doubling her weight every two months. Her coat is sleek and full and she is happy. We are happy too, as the ingredients are excellent.
