Wild Calling! Cat Food Review

There is a fairly new (2012) pet food company with a new line of dry cat foods called Wild Calling. I requested some samples since it is (currently) not sold in my area. I just received them today. I like the makeup of these foods and how the company is a family-owned one. They have good customer service and I got a response to my request for samples within the same day (of asking). They are currently making three different dry cat foods right now: turkey & sweet potato, salmon & sweet potato, and rabbit & sweet potato. They sent me all three types to let my cats try!

The ingredients are (I'm choosing to include ingredients from the rabbit one since the turkey one is in the cat food review page already but the others are almost the same with only a different source of protein, since they are made for rotation):
Rabbit Meal, Rabbit, Sweet Potato, Lentils, Turkey Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), Tapioca, Dried Peas, Natural Flavor, Coconut Oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), Dried Seaweed Meal, Bacillus coagulans Fermentation Product, Choline Chloride, DL-Methionine, L-Lysine, Potassium Chloride, Salt, Taurine, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Calcium Carbonate, Zinc Proteinate, Vitamin E Supplement, Manganese Proteinate, Ferrous Sulfate, Niacin, Copper Proteinate, Thiamine Mononitrate, Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Manganous Oxide, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Sodium Selenate, Riboflavin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Calcium Iodate, Folic Acid

This is a solid ingredient list for a food. The rabbit (and rabbit meal) is NOT sourced from China (a big plus since many brands DO source rabbit from China). In fact, this company does not source ANYTHING from China! The probiotics are a guaranteed minimum in the food too (which is not very common but great to see!)!
They also make dry dog foods (three single-protein source foods like the cat foods and three multi-source foods), canned dog foods and canned cat foods (including some interesting proteins like pheasant, rabbit, and buffalo).
Update: they both like all the flavors! They eat it up eagerly and seem to really like the taste. This will likely get added to my "rotation" of foods (I like to feed different types and brands of foods because it provides many different ingredients and provides less chance of a food allergy or nutrient deficiency).
