I was looking for a high quality cat food that would also tick of the organic box and integrate some veg into my cats diet.
My cat was not too happy and only ate the chicken and goose, which might be just my cat being fussy. However, I was also not too happy about the consistency which is very mushy and the way it is packaged, which makes it hard to get everything out of the bag without having it all over your hands. I am sure this is high quality but there is room for improvement.

My cat loves it
I choose to try this food as it's organic and has no additives just pure meat and veggies. So far I have gotten the trial whivh is good value for money though the poultry varieties didn't agree with my cat just because he's got an allergy. I have repeatedly bought the beef variety for him and had no issues, he licks the bowl clean every time!!!

My fussy cat eats it! I am so happy, she doesnt eat much and not keen on wet food, even fresh chicken. But she seems to enjoy this food.

Can not rate this enough
If you are looking for a complete cat food then you have found it. After weeks and weeks of research and looking at reviews you become so confused and wish you have never started. I am really fussy on what i feed my animals and i was feeding RC kitten food but he was eat 8 packs a day and was always wanted more it was cost me a fortune - i have a bengal so you can imagine. So since moving over to this i feed 2 packs a day and i also bought a Taurine to put on his food as this is organic

I have felt that i have to write reviews on this product as my boy loves the stuff and only needs 2 packs a day the other food RC vet food he was eating 8 packs a day and it was costing more to feed him than two adults a week

Good texture for cats that prefer to lick their food.
I admit that I'm not too happy with the formula change, but thankfully my cat still eats it. She would definitely recommend the Duck flavour, but after the change she won't touch the Goose packets. I add some fish oil to make the food slightly more moist now. But I'm happy with the ingredients list, texture is not appetizing but what can you do when your cat refuses to chew? If anyone can recommend any other 'lickable' foods I would appreciate, this one is a safe bet if anyone is looking.

Tender and Juicy
I ordered the Goose and the Duck packs and so far they like it very much. Not all the time you understand, I know you understand, and don't put in a bulk, order but every other day is fine. It is a soft pate, smells nice and looks nice. No chewing needed so ok for cats with problem teeth. I don't think they would tolerate it every day but they don't tolerate anything every day! So good but not terrific from the cat's point of view.

My cats are not particularly fussy but they won't go near the one with fish and rice. It looks very unappetising, kind of like a sticky mush. The rest is ok, but they're definitely not my cats' favourite. I only gave 3 stars because it's meant to be healthier for them as it's organic.

My cat used to live this
Whats happened to the recipe used in Herrmann's organic Beef - pumpkin and quinoa - my cat used to love this - now its totally changed from a dark meat with lots of juice to a grainy looking light one with no juice - which my cat won't touch - are Herrmann's using rose veil instead of normal beef - I've never seen such pale beef - and anyway my cat doesn't like -I want to communicate with Herrmann's to let them know they've made a mistake and to go back to the original recipe- but cannot find a phone number or email address for them ?
Beef with squash and quinoa
My cat is very fussy but generally enjoys the beef with squash and quinoa. Like other reviewers, I thought it looked a bit unappealing and overly processed but I'm not the one eating it! I also agree that there may be batch issues as there have been times when I have struggled to get him to eat, and the meat has looked rather paler than normal.
I decided to buy the variety pack and was excited for him to try other flavours, especially the venison, but unfortunately, my cat turned his nose up at all the other varieties. I ended up throwing half of the pouches in the bin and gave the remainder to a friend with 3 cats who all loved them.

My cats are very fussy but love the beef and quinoa. I look at the coats and teeth of other pets and can see feeding good quality food with no sugar and plant fillers makes a huge difference.
My cats are happier and will have fewer teeth and health problems.... i.e. less vet bills :)

Don't be put off by the way it looks!
This is for my cat and not for me! Must admit I got a surprise when I emptied the sachet into the bowl. Not what we're used to in terms of colour and texture but fussy cat loved it. She rarely finishes a whole pouch over 12 hours but almost managed this one. Food with jelly just has that bit licked off. Anything with rice, and that's left behind and patés are totally ignored. But with everything being so finely chopped, it was all eaten. Won't feed it to her all the time but I always try to have several varieties to keep things interesting. This, with dry Meowing Heads, is clearly a winner here.

Outstanding cat food
I buy the Goose variety for my cat,as it is grain-free.
My little Grace loves it.she always licks the bowl clean!
I like the fact that it is made primarily of meat and it as no additives whatsoever.
It is organic and my cat deserves the best!
The price of this wet food is reasonable as it is organic and ethical.

A New Favourite
Bought this for the first time a couple of weeks ago and my cat is very happy with it. She has actually now started turning her nose up at her previous favourite food in favour of this, which pleases me as not only does this food have a higher percentage of meat, but the company has a good ethic AND it's better value than the previous food! Very happy altogether.

Herrmanns organic cat food
This is truly amazing stuff. Looks good smells good and is in simple portions. My Siamese love the stuff. I feed them small amounts often so one packet is used per feeding for two!
I tried it for the first time and they love it! I will definitely buy again!
Organic quality food
A very wholesome and quality product.
My siamese love it.

Not the most exciting looking stuff
Bought this because of the organic ingredients. My cats aren't fond of pate-looking food. It did have a little jelly which you can scrape from the bottom of the pouch to make it more interesting for my cats. They did eat it, don't get me wrong and I am sure it did them the world of good, however if you want something that has texture, then this is not the one.

Excellent quality but batching issues
This is one of only two foods my cat with a sensitive tummy can eat without getting a runny bum. She can be fussy but in general she loves the taste, particularly the Venison and Duck flavours. The ingredients are clearly top quality unfortunately they seem to suffer some batching problems. Each batch of the same flavour I've had has been different in terms of look, smell and texture. Normally this doesn't bother her but there was one batch of very fruity smelling Venison she wouldn't touch.

Official paw of approval
This food gets the official paw of approval from my cats. Just tried them on the chicken and kamut flavour - they loved it, licked the bowl clean and smacked their chops. I'm not sure about the feeding recommendation though my cat ate the whole packet in one sitting and looked round for more afterwards. She is a nursing queen though so that could account for her appetite.
Overall a great success, I would definitely buy this again. Great choice of flavours, going to see what they make of the venison and catnip flavour next.
Only downside is the price, horrendously expensive especially if you like me have more than one cat. Nice as a treat now and again though.

Goes down a treat
I originally bought this food because the nice people at Zooplus recommended it as the most ethical available - i.e. the animals used to make it are treated well and humanely killed with care on the same farm. This was important to me as I choose not to eat meat, and although I would never make a cat eat a vegetarian diet against its nature, I am concerned that I am not contributing to some of the sickening animal abuse that takes place in factory farms and in large slaughter houses. The bonus is, my cat loves it! He wolfs it back and cleans his dish in double quick time. Very happy with it.
