Product Description: Refrigerated fresh cat food from the Freshpet Select brand, made with real chicken and other fresh ingredients.

Review: Freshpet Select Tender Chicken Cat Food
I purchased a bag of this food for my cats this morning. Read to find out if it was worth my money.
Our oldest cat has been giving us a hard time the past couple of days, at least when it comes to eating. We can tell he's starving (his stomach growls) yet, when we try to feed him, he sticks his nose up at the food.
At first, I thought maybe he wasn't feeling well. However, after seeing him devour a piece of hot dog this morning without any hesitation, I realized he might be getting bored with his food (either that, or they changed the recipe and he doesn't like the taste any more). So, since I had to stop at the store anyway this morning, I looked for something different for him. After some consideration, I picked out a bag of Freshpet Select Tender Chicken cat food.
I've actually passed by this product on numerous other occasions and even made jokes about it being better than what I feed my kids. I primarily avoided buying it, however, because, at least a first glance, it looked quite a bit more expensive than I was willing to spend (it's not as though I don't like my cats, I just can't afford to spend a fortune on them).
However, after doing some math in my head this morning, I realized it really wasn't any more expensive than the canned cat food I was already buying them. And, after that, I decided to make the purchase. As it turns out, it was a good choice.
I gave this to my cats at lunch today and they loved it. In fact, I had to separate them because, despite giving them separate dishes, they were fighting over the food. My picky older cat was practically inhaling it and, when the dishes were empty, he and his younger (adopted) brother were looking to see if there were any pieces on the floor.
The one thing that surprised me most about this product though was how filling it apparently was. I didn't give them that much to start and figured they would be under my feet looking for more. That, however, didn't happen. Instead, they were satisfied enough to curl up on the couch and go to sleep. That, in my opinion at least, adds more value to this purchase because I should be able to make the bag last longer than the canned cat food I've been buying.
I was skeptical when I made this purchase. But, at least until they get bored with it, this does seem like a good choice for my cats and I would recommend giving it a try if you have cats of your own.
