Calling all kitties to find out about the ultimate ancestral feline diet, Backcountry, from Merrick! We dogs have been eating the canine version of Backcountry for about eighteen months now and love it. My mom thought it was time for cat bro Bert and kitty sis Sophie to try the Backcountry products for cats. The kitties received one pouch of each of the wet food flavors.
You all know if it has to do with food, Bert is always on board. Sophie is a bit more selective, but still quite curious. My cats eat kibble most of the time, so they are eating the Backcountry kibble on a daily basis right now. The wet food is a welcome treat for both cats. If you just have a look at it, you can see the actual pieces of meat in the gravy! Cats crave protein, and Backcountry serves it up!
I have to admit, even being a dog, I thought it smelled pretty good! Backcountry wet food is grain free, and meat is always the first ingredient. Backcountry even has rabbit – for cats! Can you believe that!!! While Bert wasted no time digging into his meal, Sophie looked on patiently waiting for her portion to be served.
Not only is Backcountry the Ultimate Ancestral Feline Diet, it is a meal you can serve a cat on formal occasions. Both Bert and Sophie enjoy an occasional fancy meal served on the finest of china, and Backcountry fits right in. Even cat bro Bert manages to find the appropriate table manners when the meal is this good.
Bert decided they would try the Real Whitefish Recipe Cuts, but because he eats so fast, Sophie elected to try the Real Rabbit Recipe Cuts by herself. #Wild4Backcountry It’s obvious Sophie doesn’t care much for dogs with her choice of rabbit. She enjoyed eating rabbit right in front of us which we found to be a bit rude! Luckily, I happened to have some cans of Backcountry Alpine Rabbit Stew for my dinner!
After a good meal, every creature needs dessert. Never fear, Backcountry has the cats covered with their freeze dried raw treats. Bert and Sophie got a package of Real Chicken Recipe and Real Salmon Recipe. Check out Sophie’s eyes…do you think she is interested in the open bag of Salmon Recipe? Even Bert sure looks focused!
It should be no surprise, Bert wasted no time getting his paw in the bag to retrieve a treat. Sophie was checking out her treat on the scratch lounger. These freeze dried treats are all natural, grain free, gluten free, no corn, no wheat, no soy, no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.
Sophie was eager to get her paw on a treat. She is always a bit timid around Bert as he likes to steal stuff away from her.
It’s safe to say, both cats love the Backcountry ancestral feline diet. Do your kitties a favor and get some for them to try! They will purr loudly for you! More great, healthy products from Merrick Pet Care for pets!

oh what a tasty review…. please eat efurry piece of that tasty food… I bet then you will turn into a lynx too… like the one of the package :o) … and please take a photo of your mom when she finds two lynxes in da house :o)
My mom would love a lynx. She thinks they are super cool, but they may be dangerous in the house!
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
Yeah Bert you got a whole lot of goodness going on there
The kitties love it. Now we are a complete Backcountry family!

That looks like a yummy food for a kitty. I should try the freeze dried treats for Nestle. I wonder if she would eat them?
If you have any for the dogs, you can see if she likes those. They are basically the same thing. Bert is really wild about them.
I wish cat foods wouldn’t mix proteins like this. Their first five ingredients in the rabbit wet food are all animal based – yay! – but only one of them is rabbit, you also have lamb and beef. and I am so not a fan of potato starch – heck any starches – in cat foods especially..
Considering what is on the market, this food isn’t bad.. and I’m glad your kitties liked it 🙂 (and I hope they don’t turn into lynx.. that would be one heck of a litter box to clean)
Our cats don’t get the wet food except for special occasions, so when they get it, it is a real treat. Unless you go to a complete raw diet, there are always things in food that we may wish were not there. As far as foods go, we are happy with Backcountry for us dogs and for the cats.

Our kitty friend would love that stuff

The only downsize is you don’t need a can opener. Can openers are always a cat clue to wet food!
That looks yummy! I sure wish Mudpie wasn’t so fussy…I can guarantee she’d lick the gravy like crazy though!
Sophie is super picky, but she likes it.

Hey Emma – where did Kitty sis Sofie come from? Is she visiting or is this a new addition? She’s awfully cute…
We adopted her the same day as Bert, but she is a typical cat. She rarely comes out, doesn’t like the camera, doesn’t like dogs, so she isn’t seen real often.

Hey Emma, it was sure nice of you to let the cats take over your blog today. Sophie is very pretty and you know, we love us some Bert. ♥ We don’t have any kitties but enjoy Merrick’s Back Country dog food.
I could secretly arrange for Bert to “just happen” to arrive at your house per US Mail. I know we have a lot of boxes and stamps around here…
We have never tried those and they sure sound yummy! Great review!!!
I bet you would enjoy this food, and for sure the freeze dried raw treats.
OMCs Emma I had no idea you had kitty sibs….Bert and Sophie are very handsome/pretty. We are kinda partial to gray cats. Even though I often look black my furs are dark gray. You had me licking my chops that is some fine looking food and I KNOW it aroma is divine too. Great commentary of the wonderful photos. Hugs and nose taps to you all and thank you so much for pawticipating my my sun puddle napping.
Madi your 3 favorite kitty
I share the love of sun puddles with cats. Nothing beats a good hot nap! Thanks for coming by!

Those look like two very happy cats! We like to feed Sam both wet and dry foods. She’d be happy with just dry I think but we like to give her a variety. She has wet in the morning and dry in the evening. She is so picky though, and rarely likes anything new we try with her. Or she’ll like it once and then when I get more she won’t eat it again. Cats! 🙂
Bert is one who eats anything and everything as pretty much everyone knows. Sophie is real picky, but Mom doesn’t cave and eventually she will eat what she is given. Some things she likes right away, though, like this food.
The Island Cats says
We need to give that food a try!
It is good stuff according to my kitties, even picky Sophie. I bet you would love it!
We don’t have a cat but I might have to check this out for my mom’s cat!
Or maybe get a cat so you can try the food? I guess that would not be the right reason to get a cat. I bet your mom’s cat would like it.
Miss Harper Lee says
Mmmmmm, salmon and rabbit are two of my all-time favorite dog food flavors. I’d say Bert and Sophie have scored with their new meal and treat offerings!
Wabbit is always our fav, but we love Salmon too. Hard to believe they give such delicacies to cats!
