Chicken Soup for the Soul Adult Dry Cat Food
Higher fat, happy cat
I was guided to this brand by a knowledgeable pet food store owner in Brooklyn, NYC, who showed me that it had the same ingredient list as the more expensive brand I had been feeding my cat, Velcro, for many years. After a serious urinary tract issue, Velcro did well on Chicken Soup; but recently, supplies of the Senior Cat Hairball Formula became scarce, and I tried the Adult Formula.
I checked with experts, both here and on other sites, about the danger of such a switch, and was told that while the fat content was quite a bit higher, the protein was about the same, so if Velcro tolerated the new food, it would be fine.
He devoured it!
He's almost 20, and, excepting a recent flea-induced bout of anemia, has weighed the same for many years. Though he has dental and vision issues, his penchant for flying-squirrel-like jumps remains undampened, and I expect this fine food to fuel many more takeoffs in the future.

Chicken Soup 4 Life
This cat food is awesome, i did ALOT of research in switching my dogs & cats from the stuff you can get at grocery stores... the stuff they sell is bad for you no matter how much they pretty it up with words like "natural." this brand is very healthy for your dogs & cats without breaking your wallet. I will never go back to any other brand, it's good for em & they love it.

My Cat Loves This!
Reading the ingredients really says it all. I have been feeding my cat this kibble since I first got him at 3 months old. He is 1 year old now. Healthy, happy, crazy. For a Domestic Short Hair, his grey fur is full, soft and shiney. One of the better foods on the market at a reasonable price.

Our cats were vomiting undigested food so we're switching to this and at 50% mix with the old food there is a dramatic decrease in vomiting.

all cats love it
All my cats love this dry food. from the youngsters who turn 1 year old next month, to the 16 yr old. Some are finicky eaters but they all love this brand.

This product has better ingredients than any others we have tried.
My daughter has 3 cats and had trouble with them throwing up, after some research, she found this product and the problem was solved. I was having similar problems with my two cats and she suggested I try this food. I first bought a small bag, but now I am feeding it to both of them and the throwing up has stopped. My cats are 11 and 12 yrs old, we tried many different products... this is the best!

Used to love
I had been feeding this food to my two cats for about six years and they've always done well on it. I knew it wasn't the best food out there but it was really good and extremely affordable compared to others. However along with the recent packaging change they must have changed something in the ingredients as well. I was delighted to see updated packaging (now it looks like it's from the 90's rather than the 80's! Catching up with the times slowly but surely) and bought it like usual. Scooped some of the food into my cats' bowl and they pranced on over, smelled it, took a small bite, then left. Odd but maybe they weren't hungry. Did the same thing for the next few days until I took the bag back to get an exchange thinking it was just a bad batch. This was from a different batch and they still weren't eating it.
I did some research online and ended up settling on Orijen and Acana for their new diet. So far they've been gobbling that stuff up and even leaving out the pieces of the old food I had mixed in for the transition.
Not sure what was changed since I don't have a list of the old ingredients but I was very disappointed that my cats will no longer eat this food.

20% Price Increase
I was very disappointed when I went to buy CSFS adult cat food and saw that the dry food weight has decreased from 18 to 15 lbs per bag, resulting in an effective price increase of 20% per pound. Now, I may go back to other, more premium brands since CSFS is not the good deal it once was. There are better cat foods at the same price point that CSFS is now at.
