My guys used to like the turkey, but they they tried the duck!  Now turkey sits sad and alone because duck is the favorite!

Haven't tried the rabbit, yet, but a few of my crew really don't like rabbit (I know - heathens!), so I'm not running to try it.

We continue to use Feline Natural freeze-dried raw in our rotation.  Now that we are eating fd raw as our main meals, everyone is now really loving this brand.

There are a couple new flavors now.

Chicken & Lamb - big thumbs up
Chicken & Venison - big thumbs up
Lamb & Salmon (new) - big thumbs up

Now that I'm reconstituting this "like a pro"  Wink  it's really gobbled down by all 8 cats!  I've ordered the Beef & Hoki (new) just to try it out and see what they think.

By the way, I wanted to mention that you won't be able to find information on their website about the Chicken & Venison.  Apparently there is a shortage of venison so they've temporarily taken it off of their website.  I know - that seems like a weird, confusing thing to do.  You'd think they'd just write the info above the product.  Anyway, they've written back to tell me that they are continuing with this flavor but it is just off of their website for a while.

Breaking up the cylinders is working for us.

Chicken continues to be a huge hit and now everyone eats it rehydrated (though with much less water than what Stella suggests).

We also tried the Chicken & Salmon, and no surprise it was also well received.

2/3 isn't bad, is it?  I'd say that's not bad!  I've put leftovers in the fridge and served it later that day (straight from the fridge like a snack - you can also try rolling the leftovers into little things that resembled "dry food" balls  Roll Eyes  ).  I don't know if you served this for breakfast or dinner, but you might next try it at the opposite time and see if that makes a difference.

Fingers crossed for chicken!

Fingers crossed for you, too, Ned!

Tried VE Duck yesterday for dinner.  They ate about 2/3 of it, then didn't revisit it.  I'm going to try chicken.  Duck may not be their thing.
