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!
@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.

The smell isn't the greatest, but out cats loved it. It can be watery/runny at times, but one of our cats is a super picky eater and dislikes new cat food. Read morePublished 11 months ago by superherocats
My cats love this salmon - it is a bit runny but the flavor must be good as they eat it up immediately. And I love that it is cat food without the grain added to it.Published on December 11, 2013 by Regina Tiedemann
My kitties love their canned food at night. One of them needs to have an allergy powder and the consistency of Merrick's Salmon mixes well and hides the powder. Read morePublished on November 21, 2013 by Tiffany Ann Weber

I have 2 cats and have been through half of a case of this stuff and they will not touch it. Both cats will go up to the bowl, sniff it and walk away. Read morePublished on October 28, 2013 by Crystal

Good product. Low carbs, unfortunately the manufacturer discontinued it and replaced with fancier but less healthier option from now onPublished on October 25, 2013 by Vitali Grigil
