Sheba Has Turned My Harsh Mistress into a very Happy Monster

In 2008, I began trying to convert Smidgen over from kibble to moist food, as it is better for feline teeth, which aren't designed to chew on crunchy things, at least not all the time. She never really got into it and usually just licked the gravy off anything, leaving a lot of leftovers that invariably got thrown away. Then I tried her on this. I now have to make life choices like, 'Do I want to give her a little extra bedtime snack or do I want to stay awake all night while she sings me the song of her people?' Considering I'm ordering more of this after submitting my review, I don't think I have to tell anyone what choice I made. If Smidgen were polydactyl, she'd give this food, especially the beef and turkey, two thumbs up. Instead, please let me share her verbal review, transcribed here exactly as it was said: "mmmrrrrrrrrrrrrrrRRRRRR MMMMEEEEEOOOOOOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWWWWWWWWMOWW MAWWWW MAWWWW MEEEEAWWW MRRRRRRRrrrrrrr!!!!"

My picky cat loves these perfect portions. Since she would only eat 1/2 of a can of "canned" food, and refuse to eat the balance later, this is the perfect answer for me. I love the packaging. Its the perfect portion per meal for my cat. She prefers the Beef Entrée and gobbles it up like no other cat food I have ever served her. Also love the easy opening package. I am a 75 yr old senior and have no problems opening. Thank you so much for developing these containers.

I have an elderly 16 year old cat that has been slowly losing her teeth - one by one. She has been through several tooth extractions to halt infections and dental disease over the past 2 years. During this time, she's lost her palate for a variety of foods. She's completely done with dry kibble and now refuses the conventional "canned" food. I had been using "pate'" formulas of canned food but she's turned her nose up to even these more recently. When she started losing weight I got desperate and on a hunch - or should I say hope - I picked up a couple of these perfect portions of Sheba pate' and wow, wow, WOW!!! She ate 5 in a row - making up for lost nutrition! The texture is almost like a souffle' that she eats with NO effort. She especially loves the "Delicate Salmon" and now happy to say, the "Roasted Chicken and Liver". I am relieved to see that her body weight has returned to normal and she is well hydrated...a Happy Senior Cat. She normally eats 3 perfect portion cups a day now - sometimes 4. Thank you so much Sheba!

I have been purchasing Fancy Feast for my cats for years. I have noticed that lately they lick at the gravy and then walk away. I was sent a promotional sample of the Sheba meat sticks and my finicky Maine Coon said yummy. So I thought what the heck let me pick up some of the wet food through Amazon. Now the real surprise was when my "uppity I don't like anything diva Russian Blue" meowed yummy and ate some. I still have a ton of fancy feast which they get in the morning which they lick the gravy off of and in the evening I give them the Sheba which they love, no left overs in their kitty dish and that makes me super happy :D

I've searched for nearly a year for a wet cat food for my kitty who has stomatitis. Poor guy has lost all of his teeth, and the vet said to feed him only wet foods to lessen his chance for pain. He was on Fancy Feast for gravy lovers, then FF pate. I don't know if he tired of this brand, but it looked as though he was eating less and less. I used broths and stews and bisque, but these were geared toward snacks, not meals. I recently purchased the SHEBA pate, and he's starting to get his appetite back again. I've tried about 4 pate' brands, this one is the absolute softest. It is soft enough and "fluffy" enough not to get plastered into the bowl as he licks it up. This is truly a lifesaving game changer for my little guy. He's about 10, and with the stomatitis, he needs all the help he can get. SHEBA pate' will help me to keep him as healthy as possible. Thank you SHEBA folks!
The packaging is nice, plastic portion sections with foil seals that have a tab. Well sealed, looks like they will not leak. There are two container sections per each single unit that snap apart making two servings per single physical unit. Twelve units of two servings per multipack 24 in total.
Kitty likes the flavor I chose, Chicken Entree, and it even smells pretty good for cat food. I will purchase this one again!

I would have given this a higher review because my cat does typically finishe it if I give it to her. The packaging, however, is horrendous. It's difficult to open the small plastic container because the seal is very strong and perhaps vacuum sealed. You open up the edge of the pack and invariably end up with sauce spraying out either on your hands, on the table, or on the floor, depending on which direction you had it pointed. I don't believe folks with arthritis or weaker hands could even open this.

My senior cat has gone through a lifetime of preferences by now, but most of her life she ate dry kibble. As she matured, she began to have thyroid issues and simply could not eat enough. She'd overeat, then vomit it all up. So I decided to try different types of wet food to alternate her dry food with. We tried all the "good" natural brands, as well as the cheaper lower quality brands in search of something she would eat for more than 1 or 2 cans. We tried grills, pates, chunks, and gravies. She liked gravies a lot, but not the chunks. Most pates were too dry, and lost their flavor appeal when we added water to thin it out. She didn't like it the cans if they were open too long or refrigerated. Nothing was working and she was losing weight pretty quickly. I decided to try Sheba with her after reading some reviews here. So glad I did. We mostly get the chicken portions and alternate them with the white fish, and salmon portions. Every meal is fresh. She eats 3-4 portions per day, and a 3am portion of dry kibble. She absolutely loves this stuff, and has even gained a little weight back. If you are having problems with your cat finding the "right" food, I'd definitely recommend your cat try this stuff.

No more Sheba for Frye! He didn't like this new version at all, he used to love it. They must have changed the formula. I even left it out so he had nothing else to eat- he then did eat it but it made kitty throw up. So we have a cat food company making cats sick?

I threw out the rest and proceeded to shop for something new. Too bad! We had a reliable thing going before they changed their packaging and apparently also their recipe. Or maybe it really is the plastic packaging that is contaminating the food? I have read that other cats are objecting to the food in the same way but I didn't think it would happen to us. It did.

My cat are both older, 15 and 16, and have most of their teeth removed. It's been hard to find foods they like. They originally ate Fancy Feast, but recently started wasting it altogether, after eating it for over a decade.

Then we tried Soulistic, which looks like human-grade canned food, but shunned that after about a month. Not even sure why, the chicken in particular looked good enough to eat myself.

I picked this up randomly at the grocery store to see how it would go over. Both cats gobbled it down. We went through about 40 meals like this. Then I decided to buy it more in bulk on Amazon.

First of all, it's easier to open than a can. You just peel the top off and dump out the food. In several types of canned food, it required a great deal of shaking, banging, and even scraping to remove the meal. My cats don't eat much each meal, so I was also having to deal with splitting the can into two bowls 3x a day. With this I just open both sections and drop it in the bowls. Since it's not a can you can also squeeze the sides and push the food out. I know it's called Perfect Portions but the size of each is good for my cats. They usually eat most if not all of it, which is an accomplishment at times.

We've tried the chicken styles and seafood. It's like a pâté, ground fine and soft. We try to avoid things they have to chew much, because they've had their teeth removed over the years.

I'm pleased overall with how my cats like it, and the packaging.

Needs a bit more sauce. My finicky cat likes this, but tends to eat mostly the parts with sauce on them, then leaves the rest. I tried mixing it all together and that didn't work, because she would kinda lick/eat the top and leave the rest flattened on the dish. Chopping it up and drizzling the sauce over the top on the "chunks" is how I can get her to eat most of it. But if there was a bit more sauce, she'd probably eat all of it. Some batches come with more sauce than others so sometimes it is pretty good, and sometimes there's little sauce.

I should note that she has dry food that she likes a lot - Nature's Recipe Grain Free Indoor. But she still gets really excited for wet food. However she doesn't eat much probably because she eats so much of the dry, so I actually feed half of the side at a time. If she were eating only these, the size might be a bit small. But she's always been picky about wet food for some reason. With more wet food to start with, she'd just leave most on the plate and not touch it again the rest of the day, but go eat the dry food.
