My three year old rescue named Tommy is very difficult when it comes to meals. In addition to being finicky, he never shows much enthusiasm when it comes to eating in general. My sister recommended I try Prowl as she feeds her dogs Honest Kitchen products. Much to my surprise and delight, Tommy not only loved the food from the get-go but licked his bowl clean. He gets so excited when he sees me reach for the box of Prowl that he now comes running into the kitchen in anticipation of me serving his warm meal. My other cat has a healthy appetite but has suffered from digestive trouble for years now. After switching over to Prowl her tummy troubles are a thing of the past and she too loves the taste! THANK YOU Honest Kitchen for making furry babies so happy and providing us with products where we can easily recognize all the ingredients! Top notch!

My cat is 14 years old. She has been on regular dry food all of her life. She started having problems throwing up a few years ago. It had gotten to the point where it was happening so frequently that something had to be done! I had her thyroid tested at the vet. They said she was borderline hyperthyroid and recommended a certain food to help. I wanted to try a more natural and healthier food instead.

I switched to Prowl a little over 2 months ago. My cat loves it! I didn't have to ease her into the new food very long at all. I mixed a little Prowl with a little kibble and then put the bowl of prowl down. I did that for a few days then I put a dap of the prowl in the bowl she was used to eating kibble in then put her bowl of prowl down. I did that for a couple of days. Then I started putting the bowl of prowl down and have been ever since. I did (and still do) have to play with the consistency. Sometimes kitty likes it thicker and sometime she likes it thinner. I have seen her not eat it at all because the consistency wasn't right for her that particular day.

After switching her to prowl, she still threw up at first. But after a few weeks it got better and less often. Now, 2 full months into the Prowl food, she only throws up hair balls. She used to not do hairballs but I guess the food being liquid instead of kibble she is licking herself more and so now she's getting hairballs were she used to not. I'll take hairballs over throw up though!

One more thing to note, my cat weighed 10 pounds before switching her food. Since switching her to prowl, she lost 3 pounds and now weighs 7 pounds.

I am very satisfied with this product! I believe it is healthier for my cat and it has helped with her throwing up! I will most definitely continue to use it. So glad I found it while searching the internet!

I purchased Prowl for my very big, senior Maine Coon mix, Ace. At age 12+ he was addicted to his dry food and really thought grazing all day was the way to go. But as he started getting older and overweight I started seeing possible signs of diabetes although blood work ruled that out. After switching all my cats over to a wet food diet in the last 6 months, I decided I wanted something better for them but dont have space to provide a raw diet so I tried Prowl. Ace took to it like a duck to water. After 3 weeks his weight has stabilized and he's runing around and playing with the two younger cats in the house. Now if I can just convince the other cats.

I wish I could give the Grace cat food five stars, and rate this one higher than that somehow, because my two "senior citizens" love the Prowl even more! They can tell from anywhere in the house when I open either, and magically materialize just before the three-minute timer goes off to serve it. They were never difficult eaters, but they began getting peaky and picky and dropping weight while boarded at a wonderful kennel after a sudden move from the house we'd lived in all their lives. We tried samples of many many kinds of food to see what they would be happy with--THK is IT! They clean the bowl and look for more. but it doesn't upset their stomachs when they eat so quickly, like wet food always seems to. It is easy for older cats to eat, and my two have nice glossy coats and have added weight back. We gave them the Grace first and thought we'd cracked it, but we also had sample sizes of Prowl, and BOY! They prefer that even more enthusiastically.

We have one cat and he is an active indoor-outdoor cat. He adopted us about a year ago when we found him wandering around our property more and more frequently. Eventually we gained his trust and he is right at home! We feed him twice a day - am and pm. As most cat owners know, transitioning cat food can be tricky and a painstaking process. He liked his previous food but we were looking for a better alternative to the a raw diet due to cost and health concerns.

It took about a month but he is now fully transitioned to his new food. For the first week, we blended old and new food (75/25 mix) and he was hesitant. We were persistent and worked on the temp of water and consistency of food. Then we slowly adjusted the blend until he would eat 100% of the new food. We found a good texture to his liking but he still resisted the cranberries until the 4th week. Now he eats it all up and leaves a clean bowl.

He has had no digestive issues throughout the transition process. His weight has maintained and his skin/coat look shiny and healthy. This is a great product if you have the time, patience and perseverance to get your pet through the process!

I have two cats, Patrick and Stanley, who have been on dry food and wet food their whole life. I was hesitant about their reaction to a new food but excited by my dog's reaction. It's very watery and I had to play around with the water content a lot because even the tiniest changes to water added, change the entire consistency of the food. My Stanley started to enjoy it after a few days and now he loves it. But Patrick has been difficult. I've been working with him for weeks and he still only eats the food when he gets hungry enough. I have tried mixing it with his dry food and wet food in small amounts and I've tried it alone. I've added some of his favorite treats to it in hopes of enticing him. But it is a slow, steady struggle.

I bought the 3oz tester to give to my cat. He seems to tolerate it well enough, doesn't seem too bothered by the texture (a bit paste-like). This Chicken one (Prowl) firmed up a bit better compared to the Turkey one (Grace), which may be because Prowl has a bit more carbs than the Grace. I don't quite understand the need for whole pieces of berry in the food, as cats are carnivores, but my kitten seems to eat them without too much of a fuss.

Based on the nutrient profile provided on this site, it looks like 3oz dry of Prowl would be around a day's meal for my kitten. With water added, I've estimated that it'd be about 6ozs of food, at around a little over 200kcals, which is a similar amount to a regular 6oz can of wet food. This is good to hear because high-quality cat wet foods can be lower in calories at 100 to 130kcal a 6oz can, which means having to feed more for the kitty to sustain their weight.

I will include this food in the rotation, and may use this food as a topper to add into other high-quality (but low calorie) wet food. I like that I can serve this warm, as I can't do that with canned wet food, which I serve either at room temp or fridge temp. The price is decent/the same next to other comparable brands/quality. Seems like good food all around, if your cat will eat it.

My cat Thom loves this food so much he jumps up on my leg and won't stop meowing when he sees me mixing it up

I was looking for a healthier and more cost effective alternative to canned food for my male cat. I tried 8 of the samples (4 Grace, 4 Prowl) to see if he would even eat them because he's a very picky eater. The first few days I had to mix it with some canned food, but by the end of the sample period he was eating Honest Kitchen by itself. He definitely preferred Prowl over Grace; I went ahead and order a 2lb box of Prowl. But it took a little longer than I expected for my order to get to me, so I ended up feeding him canned food during that waiting time. When it got here, I had to spend a week mixing in canned food to get him used to it all over again.

I'm now 3 weeks into feeding him Honest Kitchen, and he loves it! He now meows for it and headbutts my leg while I'm making it. He also licks the bowl clean! He starts his meals off by licking it off the spoon I used to mix it. It has helped him go from a free-feeding routine (from eating kibble) to a more scheduled feeding routine. He has more energy and has a healthier looking coat too! Thanks Honest Kitchen! I do hope you come out with more flavors though, in case he starts getting bored. But I really hope he doesn't!

We have had a problem with our cat being satisfied with enough to eat. We have him on 2 prescription foods trying to help him feel full & not continue to gain wait. However, I was a little concerned that he might not like trying something that isn't a conventional cat food.

We were very fortunate that he took right to the Prowl! He actually seems to be satisfied & even leaves some for later occasionally. The only part of the Prowl that he doesn't like are the cranberries, but hey, they are an acquired taste even for humans!

My one wish was that there were more choices for cats than two.

For years I have tried many different cat foods that I hoped would be good for my pets. Not long ago I read an article about the difference between human grade and animal grade pet food. It was horrible and if people only knew what they were really feeding the pets they love so much. Finally I came across Honest Kitchen and read about how they fought to be able to say their food is human grade. They also are transparent about where they source their ingredients. At first my cats were suspicious of this new food. It smelled and looked different than the kibble they always ate. I followed instructions and left it out only for an hour or so and then threw out what was left over. This was only in the evening, I continued to feed them their old kibble brand in the morning since they like to eat at 5 AM. I don't get up at 5 AM and have an automatic feeder. In only a week they now love Prowl cat food and don't even want to touch the kibble. They beg and dance around when I am making it. One of my cats has digestive issues and is on medication. I hope that soon I will be able to take him off this medicine because both myself and our vet believe his issues from what goes into traditional pet food and where the ingredients are sourced. Thank you Honest Kitchen for loving our pets as much as we do!!!
