Pros - Made local (British Columbia) - Single meat protein is the first ingredient - The chicken they use is cage-free Cons - Literally the only food she eats anymore. If a pet food can tick the boxes for local and contains safe ingredients and ideally no garbage ingredients then im satisfied. The final and I guess most important criteria is if the cat eats it without difficulty and on that point First Mate overachieve.
My kitty does not like most dry cat food but will happily eat this! I love that this is made locally, is grain free, has limited ingredients and is relatively affordable. I will continue to repurchase!
