We are writing this review behind our owner's back because she doesn't know the true depths of our devotion to Cowboy Cookout. We love it the most! We took a vote and it was unanimous and then we all had our afternoon naps. Then we woke up and had our Cowboy Cookout dinner and thought, hey, maybe some other kitties would like to know how good this stuff is. It's got vitamins, meat, and vegatables, and it's sort of like Vitameatavegamin for cats, but it tastes really good and then you can take another nap. Or play with a catnip mouse. Or fight with a brother. Buy this for your kitties and they will love you ... or at least treat you in a less condescending manner. We promise!

THIS IS NOT NEW PACKAGING. THIS IS AN ENTIRELY NEW FORMULA

Pet360 shows that this is new packaging on the Cowboy Cookout, however, it is not new packaging. This is an entirely new formula and essentially a different product altogether. As with an earlier reviewer, I have been a long time purchaser of Cowboy Cookout and have written previous reviews about how much my cats like it and how happy I am with the product. Unfortunately this new formula is completely different. First of all, it is little chunks of beef swimming in broth. My cats will drink the broth but will not touch the meat. Furthermore, they initially walk away from this hoping they will get something else. They clearly do not like this food.

Merrick indicates that they have reduced the amount of meat in this product because of the high product cost. You can see that on their Facebook page. I would've understood if they would have raised the price per can – but I cannot understand why a company like Merrick completely changes the formula. This new "packaging" contains more water, less beef, more fat, and is overall a less palatable product.

The previous version of Cowboy Cookout used sweet potato as the starch that created the proper consistency with the broth. This new version simply uses potato starch. Potato starch is a much cheaper product.

This new version also has fewer calories per can – which is simply indicative of more fluid and less beef. Given the fattier content of the beef, having less calories per can indicates a significantly reduced amount of beef in each can.

Although it's probably still a pretty good product, it makes no difference to me because my cats will not eat it. I've been searching for a replacement for Cowboy Cookout and have found that Wellness has a new line of foods called "Signature Selects" that my cats really seem to like. At this time, I am sad to say that I will no longer be buying Merrick cat food. First they changed the dry food to something that my cats won't eat and now they kill a long-term favorite called Cowboy Cookout. I understand that they may be going through some financial issues, but to change the quality of the formula and pretend it's only new packaging is despicable.

Poor quality control

By Gigi

Comments about Merrick Purrfect Bistro Cowboy Cookout Recipe Canned Cat Food:

About 10% of the cans are almost all liquid, soup in essence, and I have to throw them away. Find when consistency is as specified otherwise.

Comments about Merrick Purrfect Bistro Cowboy Cookout Recipe Canned Cat Food:

Not sure what it is about this flavor but my cats try it but never ever eat all of it. If they are really hungry they might eat some but even then they never eat it all and I end up throwing it out.

Comments about Merrick Purrfect Bistro Cowboy Cookout Recipe Canned Cat Food:

I was trying different canned foods for one cat who has allergies, and the vet said to stay away from fish byproducts. This particular cat LOOOVES gravy, and found Purrfect Bistro.
She liked the Turducken, but she would often just lick the gravy and leave the food part.

Well, she is crazy for Cowboy Cookout, and always wants more. Now the other cats are eating it too, and I'm going broke!

This is a winner!
