My kitty doesn't really like the pate type of food. I bought a big box not realizing that it was pate, but I mix some hard food in it and he will usually eat it. He seems to like the flavor though. But as far as quantity, this hardly seems like the "perfect portion" for my kitty. He always seems like he's starving. This could be because he was a stay, but we have had him for almost 3 years so......I would think he know that he's going to get fed. But I don't know.
