Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Picky Eaters Thank you for this product. This is the only cat food our cat will eat. She will not eat anything wet (including human food) She turns her nose at tuna, fresh fish, etc. If you ever get rid of this product I really truly do not know what we would feed her. I wish you had coupons every once in a while for some extra savings otherwise absolutely no other complaints only recommendations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very picky feline I've dabbled with many brands of cat food with this kitty. He would get an upset stomach with the lower quality brands and he'd turn his nose up at anything that was considered healthy. I decided to give this a try and he loves it. I've been feeding it to him for a little while now and he's digesting everything wonderfully, comes when called for meal time, and even has a nice shiny and soft coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!! My kitty didn't come into my home until he was almost 5 years old, and had eaten nothing but the cheap grocery store brands his whole life. I tried 10 different brands of higher quality food and he wouldn't touch any of it. I had just decided to give up and allow the junk food when I found this Finicky Feline option on the shelf, and he actually ate it!! It definitely is expensive, but it is such a higher quality than the junk he was eating before that I think its worth it. I'm looking forward to seeing the improvements in his skin and fur that I know will come soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from dry Cat food for finicky felines If you knew how many brands of dry cat food I've purchased in the past 6 months and have found nothing HIS HIGHNESS would eat. I would buy of bag of cheaper brands and then give away because my cat wouldn't eat. Until I bought Nutro for Finicky Felines...he loved it!!! I won't buy it again though, because the 6.5lb bag was $27.00 at Petco!!!!!!!!!!
