    This brand can be hit or miss. Give it 2.5 stars for this reason, coupled with the previous year not being able to find venison canned cat food, then once available was price was too high. When a consumer spends that kind of money $80 plus a case for the venison then it is not good as before, something changed, well it not only hurts the pocket it puts doubt on the brand’s deliverables. Has this was not enough, there was the rabbit canned for cats, this too ran out, then Ziwi Peak decided to mix rabbit with other meat. It is hard to keep up with inconsistencies and one can easily loose interest in the brand/product that once had great value specially when the formula changes not for the better.
