My cats love the NV Prairie Homestyle.  We've tried the chicken and the turkey flavors.  Even my cat who refuses most canned foods eats it.  Even my 17 week old kitten loves it.  I was a little worried about the size of the chunks, but she manages just fine.

I've been using this food occasionally for the past month or so, and it's been a long time since I've seen such an across-the-board enthusiastic response to a cat food.  I've tried several different lots and flavors, all with good results.  This food is a chunks-and-gravy type.

Even my two picky I-hate-canned-food cats are devouring this.  This morning I nearly had a cat fight on my hands over who got to clean up the last bit on one of the plates!

The strange thing is that my cats absolutely hate the older Prairie line; none of them will touch it at all.

Here is a sample of the ingredients from the Turkey and Liver Stew, which has been a big hit:

INGREDIENTS:  Turkey Broth, Turkey, Turkey Liver, Chicken, Egg Whites, Brown Rice, Potato Starch, Carrots, Oat Fiber, Spinach, Flaxseed, Red Peppers, Guar Gum, Natural Flavor, Sodium Phosphate, Menhaden Fish Oil, Vitamins (Choline Chloride, L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate, Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Vitamin A Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, Biotin, Riboflavin Supplement, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid), Dried Kelp, Parsley, Potassium Chloride, DL-Methionine, Taurine, Sunflower Oil, Calcium Carbonate, Flaxseed Oil, Salt, Tricalcium Phosphate, Minerals (Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Ethylenediamine Dihydriodide), Sage, Rosemary, Artichokes, Cranberries, Pumpkin, Tomato, Blueberries, Broccoli, Cabbage, Kale.

Not a perfect ingredient profile, but it could be worse.  To me, it's worth it if the kibble-junkies will eat a halfway-decent wet food.

The fish oil in it does not seem to bother my fish-sensitive cat, when this food is fed two or three times per week, but those with severely fish-allergic cats may need to be cautious.

We tried NV Prairie Homestyle Chicken & Tuna Stew today.  All cats and kittens loved it.  My oldest senior ate all his portion in one sitting (which is unusual for him these days)

Our three LOVE this stuff, they clean the plates.
All flavors so far are hits. Figures- its one of the most expensive and hard to find brands. But then again-no waste.

We've only tried the Turkey & Liver stew and Chicken & Tuna stew so far.  Both well received.  Sometims the older cats leave a few bits of meat pieces, couple grains of rice, but even those are licked dry of gravy.  We have to order them on-line.  Can't find them locally in the quantities we need.

ETA:  Chicken & Liver stew today.  4 of the adults left some of the meat, licked all the gravy off the meat, all all the veggies, etc.  I might try blending it so there are no more bits and see if they finish it all up.

I posted awhile back that the menhaden fish oil in the turkey and liver did not seem to bother my fish-allergic cat--well, now it does.  Linley now gets itchy ears when he eats this.  I still plan to keep feeding it to my other cats who are not allergic.

Was feeding this to my cat, Bones. He got really dandruffy and oily fur with this and the other NV foods. Allergy, maybe?
