    Went for the 8 kg option since it's cheaper than the 1.5-kilo ones from the supermarket. Nice to have something sourced a little closer to home than the American-owned ones. Transitioned easily from Purina ONE. Keeps well if stored away from moisture. Just note that fast eaters may swallow pieces whole.

    I originally bought Black Hawk from a local farm source outlet during the time when catfood was in really short supply. My cat absolutely loves these biscuits. While I was looking around for availability and prices, I came across Pet Direct. These prices are THE best, and by signing up for auto ship I am assured of availability and price!! Delivery was super quick… I ordered one day and it was here the next.

    My 12 year old cat has never looked better, she has gained weight and generally seems to have more energy. I will definitely be keeping her on BlackHawk cat food
