Six months ago, our vet wanted us to start feeding our cat a "higher quality" food, which I'm pretty sure just boils down to grain-free. Most grain-free cat foods have pretty likable ingredient lists, and Merrick's Before Grain Salmon #2 is no exception. My cat is picky, and she refused to eat all of the other grain-free brands and flavors we offered her. This one, and the tuna version, were the only things she'd eat. She loves the taste, and it's good for her, so I love it too!
It's looking likely that Merrick may be beginning to phase out this line of products in favor of their new Purrfect Bistro line. My local pet store stopped carrying the "Salmon #2" version and told me that the Merrick Purrfect Bistro "Salmon Pate" is the new replacement. He said they were the same, but if you look at the label, the new cans are smaller AND higher calorie, so feeding amounts would need to be adjusted a bit, esp if you're watching your cat's weight. Also the ingredients are different, as is the smell, texture, and taste of the new version (yes, I tasted a tiny bit of each). The new version is intensely savory/meaty, whereas the old #2 version is more watery/fresh fish tasting. The good news is that my cat ate up the new version with no trouble at all, so at least that's not a concern for us, but I don't like the fact that the new cans are smaller, more caloric, and more expensive (at least at my local store) than the older version, so I'm sticking with old standby #2 for as long as I possibly can. After that, I may go to the new Merrick, or I may hunt around for another brand that suits our needs better. Hope this helps others who are noticing this same transition!

This has been a great food choice for my diabetic cat. It has no fillers or byproducts or grains. I don't believe cats should be eating corn or rice, especially diabetic cats. It also dissolves well in water. My cats prefer to lick their wet food up instead of biting into it so I mix it with warm water. Any of you out there who have cats who only lick the gravy and don't eat the food (like in some of the 9lives or Fancy Feast cans) may want to try this option. Mixing water in is also a good way to get more water into their systems which they need especially if they are eating dry food too. My other cats like this food as well. She has had the salmon for the last two years and we recently tried the chicken and tuna which she likes too. Her insulin need has lowered significantly since being on this food and hasn't needed to be adjusted since. Read the label of Merrick Before Grain and then read the labels of 9-Lives, Fancy Feast, Iams, etc. and you will see a huge difference. I pay more for this food but it is worth it as comparing the labels with the garbage supermarket cat food to this one makes the choice a no-brainer for me. I also give my cats the Merrick Before Grain dry food (chicken flavor) too. Happy kitties :-).

Merrick's 96% Salmon has been my two cats' favorite food since we adopted them as kittens. With any other food it is a hit or miss if they will eat it on that specific day. I'm highly disappointed that Merrick decided to discontinue the 96% product line. They said the new food will be even better but my cats are pretty underwhelmed by the new food. It's a lot more stiff (especially if you refrigerate 1/2 a can) and doesn't seem as fishy. I was able to order 24-cases on Amazon the last few months but now I saw Merrick is already out of the 5.5 oz cans. It's probably only a matter of days till they're out of the 3.2 oz cans.
@Merrick: Please rethink this new food strategy. There are a lot of people out there that LOVED the old 96% food and have a tough time feeding your new food.

This has been my cat's favorite wet food since I adopted her. She wakes me up at 4:30-5am for her daily serving of half a can. Merrick has taken this out of most pet food stores, and I was able to get a local pet store to custom order it, but then they started having issues with getting it. Completely out of food, I had a case overnighted. I don't know what is wrong with this food...it doesn't smell different, but the food I had always gotten before held it's shape when I scooped some out...this food you could literally pour out of the can. My cat won't touch it, and like I said, she previously has been obsessed with this food. if you can get this from a pet store I say do it, but if you can't...I wouldn't order it from Amazon, at least.

I recently adopted a very neglected 6 week old kitten and she seems to love this food. However, anything could be better food then she was getting, which was a little dry adult cat food. So I am giving this four stars only; because I not sure about cats or kittens who have had normal lives. For all those people looking for grain free products for their pets this reads as a pretty good kibble. I generally take a good read on any kibble I give my animals. This product reads as a pretty good bang for the buck. If your looking for more information aafco.org will give you some tips on why this product is better than the typicale kibble. A cat should never never be feed corn as a byproduct in their food so give the company a thumbs up.
