Kittens thrive on a grain free diet high in quality protein with moderate fat levels and low levels of carbohydrates. That's why Purrfect Bistro Grain Free Healthy Kitten Chicken Cat Food provides balanced nutrition using real whole foods sourced from local farmers. This natural, 100% grain free formula cat food is ideal for kittens up to 12 months old with a focus on providing the right nutrients to support growing kittens.
Deboned chicken is the first ingredient and, along with chicken and turkey meals, helps comprise the 74% protein level of meat sourced ingredients that are highly digestible and rich in essential fatty acids. Fresh produce like sweet potatoes and peas provide easily digestible carbohydrates that offer the benefit of sustained energy without upsetting grain-sensitive digestive systems. This high quality grain free diet is fortified with vitamins, minerals, probiotics, and antioxidants.
Not all brands make their own food. We put cooking and quality under one roof. Our five-star kitchen and manufacturing facilities uphold the strict guidelines well defined by the FDA. Our Merrick recipes are made using farm fresh ingredients locally sourced to ensure the highest quality. As a result, our recipes are 100% free of ingredients from China.

I just found out today that you can buy a 12lb bag of food, you just have to order it from your pet shop. It saves you 3/4 of the cost of a 4lb bag too. So everyone should look into this with their local pet shops. I gave it 4 stars because its great, but my newest addition, (who was raised from a newborn until 3 months at the animal shelter, now is almost 6 months) cannot get used to the high protein and has been having tummy problems for months but is slowly getting better. My 2, 1 year old cats are getting a bit fat from the high protein and we only give them about a half a cup a day with a bit of merrick wet food. They were both rescued as kittens from outdoors so we definitely noticed a significant health turn around though.

I jjust started my Feline Luekemia positive kitty on this and I got it at PetCo, now when I went in the last 2 times to purchase more, they said there was a shipping or distribuation problem at Merrick and they didn't know when they would be getting it in again. What the heck is going on? I also purchased a bag of the grain free chicken adult to start switching my other 5 over and now I returned it since there was no reason to start the switch over if I can't get it, what's going on?

My cats love this
from Yorktown, VA
I bought this to try something different. I have 7 rescue cats. Two are runts and are under 6 pounds although they are adults. It is very difficult to find a grain free food that is small in morsel size that all 7 will eat. I fill two of their dry bowls with this in the morning and when I get home at night they are empty! I've gone through a whole bag in less than a week so I can definitely say that several of my cats like it, if not all. I will continue to buy this. Hopefully, if I switch them to an adult formula the morsel size will not change that much.
Brought good health to 2 weak rescues
from Austin, TX, United States
I rescued two abandoned kittens; both were ill and malnourished. Purrfect Bistro was recommended by my local pet care shop (Bark & Purr, Austin, Texas) and the results over the past year have been wonderful! Both cats are sleek, healthy and active. I'm going to stick with Merrick foods; I couldn't be happier with the results.
Excellent Kitten Food!
from South Lake Tahoe, CA, United States
I wouldn't trust my kitten with any other brand, he LOVES Merrick and I do too.
from Neenah, WI, United States
I run a proud co-founder of Valley Cats Cat and Kitten Rescue! When we get the little baby kittens in this is the first food I reach for when they are ready! It is so healthy for them and really gets them off to a great start in life!
found in Malaysia
Having found your product here has been great in opening up our cat food options. Availability is not as constant as we'd like given that it's imported ( no local equivalents). However, it is ( when available) becoming an important part of our cattery's diet - consisting of home made raw and cooked and high quality commercial foods. Hope to see a more constant supply, particularly the large bags.

Awesome kitten food
from Galveston, TX, United States
I took in a very young and sick kitten. After several days, and feeding Merrick kitten food, she is doing much better. The kibble has a higher moisture content than the Blue Buffalo type I was considering. The nutritional values are excellent, and more affordable than Blue Buffalo. The kibble is small enough for my 6 week old kitten, and soft enough for her tiny teeth. Based on the experience with this Merrick kitten food, I will be switching my older cat's food to Merrick as well. Plus it's a Texas brand, which is awesome!

love it for my foster kittens!
from Baytown, TX, United States
I foster kittens from bottles to eating on their own. This kibble is small and easy for brand new baby teeth to crunch. Being fosters we don't always know theie history so it's important to have them on really good food. I'll never buy anything else!
