Surprised by texture
I really wanted this product to be popular with my cats, as the Royal Canin I’ve been feeding them is pricey, but they didn’t like this or the tinned Smilla wet food. The smell is very strong and the textured was more of a paste, with visible white fat. No gravy as such, which they are used to. Sadly I’ll be back to Royal Canin and the price tag that goes with it. Though they do like the Smilla dry food.
My cat will only eat this
Our cat used to have Smilla tins when he was a kitten so I thought I’d try the adult pouches. He loves the smell, texture and taste. You need a fork to mash it up as it comes out solid from the pack. It also doesn’t look great, quite meaty and sometimes the jelly is solid.
Superb , healthy food for rotund cats!
A couple of my cats are a little overweight. They thoroughly enjoy Smilla sterilised...low cal, no nasty ingredients.
My cat loves this food, if you’re looking for a healthy, high meat content, no added crap for your cat this is it!
Wasted my money on mixed box
Neither of my cats would touch this stuff - no matter which variety was offered. Very disappointing all round.
Going down well!
My cats are enjoying these! I'm pleased about that because they're very fussy and need a change from their normal tins from time to time. Smilla is one of the good quality foods and a decent price too. It's pleasant for me to deal with and the cats eat all the flavours, so good all round. I'm very pleased to have found it!
A good option, and the added DL-methionine & L-carnitine makes it a bit different.
For a pouch food, with no added grains&sugar this is good value. Yes, the rabbit smells quite strong but my 1 year old likes rabbit in general so its not left sitting around a long time smelling! More variety than 3 flavoues would be a plus as hes not crazy about beef and its not different with this product (though he ate them). The texture not as dry as most pates. Wouldnt use as a main food due to unclear amount of by-products but a good occasional/"cheaper but still quality food" option.
Fussy cat thumbs up for Smilla
I recently stopped feeding my cat dry food and was looking for a healthier wet food without grains or sugars. I’m happy to say my cat loves the mixed pouches, especially the chicken and the beef. He’s starting to get used to the rabbit. I like the variety of a mixed pack because so many commercially available catfoods contain fish and the cat gets used to the strong flavour and won’t eat anything else. I read you should only give a cat fish 1-2 timea/week. So it’s paws up for Smilla!
kitty didn't like it all that much
sounds a good product, but the fact is my cat wasn't all that keen ....
My picky cat loves it
It is the first time that I buy this product as they changed the recipe of the brand that I used to get and my picky cat wasn't very happy with the flavour change. I was a little worried that he wouldn't eat it, specially after reading other reviews and seeing that some cats did reject the rabbit variant. My cat (did I mention that he is reaaally picky? 😁) loves it, including the rabbit one. I would definitely buy it again
Great. I wish they did fish varieties in pouches too.
My two cats love this food. Having had the small tins of regular Smilla and surprisingly loved them, I tried them on the sterilised pouches as they are both neutered and need to lose a bit of weight and I find pouches much more convenient than tins. There is a bit more jelly than the tins and I add a little water as this type of 'corned beef' texture food tends to be drier than most. They like all the varieties, I just wish they did more, especially fish!
Great food but Rabbit not a hit with 4 cats
So they prefer Smilla pouches to the tins (when do cats ever prefer tins that are more cost effective?!) but they don't like the rabbit flavour so it's too expensive to buy this for the other 2 flavours which is disappointing as the beef goes down like I've given them a plate of fillet steak!
Fussy cat likes it
I would never buy it, because the ingredients don't look too great, but I got it free sample and my fussy cat loved it. He needs to put the weight on so I won't argue. The problem is that he only likes the chicken variety, so I won't buy it again until I can get a single flavour as the rest ends up in a bin.
Single flavour please
Excellent food but rabbit variety is a serious no no! Separating the flavours gives more personalised choice and a saving of cash.
A great idea - but needs to be available in cans too!
A grain-free, non-prescription diet designed specifically for neutered cats, maintaining both a healthy weight and urinary system (big worries in neutered adults) gives you peace of mind. The problem is, making this iteration of Smilla only available in pouches is somewhat limiting. It's far more expensive per 100g for a start, but also, if your cats dislike one of the flavours (in my household it's chicken) the solitary choice of the variety pack leaves you with a lot of waste. Cans please!
Smells great but sadly my cat is not fond of the rabbit variety. Every other flavour gets woofed down with no probs :)
