Rated 5 out of 5 by chichian High quality, yummy kibble
I rotate between this and California Natural Grain Free for dry food. My cat absolutely loves both the Go! Fit and Free and CA Natural whenever it's the start of the rotation with that particular flavor, but will slowly loose interest near the end (but will still eat). Lucky for him, then it's time to switch to the other (a welcome change I guess).
I feed two outside strays also, and they act the same way with a slight preference though towards to the CA Natural.
The ingredients are good--all meats & meat meals before the fat, and the smell is strong (which seems important in order to appeal to cats). The kibble size is very small, which I thought would be good since my cat doesn't really chew his food anyway, but I think one cat prefers to crunch larger kibble.
All the cats eat less of the Go! than the CA Natural. I believe it's because the Go! has more calories, and so they don't have to eat as much. It may be that they prefer the taste of CA Natural though.
I wouldn't say it's perfect, but there probably isn't a perfect kibble anyway. The only things I don't like are the fish ingredients (but they are further down the list) and the stuffing of fruits & vegetables which in my opinion, a cat does not necessarily need and should be kept to a minimum. Other than that, it seems like a tasty food with a high concentration of nutrition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FerretShelter High quality, can be used for ferrets
I bought this to add to my mix for the ferrets in my shelter. Ferrets have similar nutritional needs to kittens.
The pieces are small, but the ferrets are eating it just fine. My cats like it, too. It's too soon to tell if it impacts the quality of the fur, but the ingredients are very nice and I think it's a good addition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kathie Happy Kitty
The product arrived very quickly. It surprised me. My picky cat will eat it, but not with the gusto I expected. Perhaps she is just too old for the enthusiasm she had for it before. I am glad, though that I bought it, because she will eat it and I think I am giving an old cat (16 1/2) a good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by butchroy good company
I bought this cat food for my eight cats due to excellent reviews about the company and its products. I have found my cats like it well enough but some are vomiting it up, like it may be too rich. Just my experience. I had it on automatic reorder but cancelled that when they kept vomiting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kramer63 Not their favorite
Our cats mainly eat canned food, but we give a little dry as a daily treat. I was forced to try a different brand due to a recall, and decided this one would do, although it has way too many fruit/veg in it. Our cat that thinks of dry food as "candy" and craves it continuously ate this food fine. The other cat who does not crave dry food would not eat this one at all, although will eat other brands. The kibble size is very small, although I do not think that was the issue. He seemed to dislike the smell of it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Courtney325 My cat loves the taste however Major Concerns
I gave Go Fit & Grain free a try knowing the company who makes it has a reputable name and is made in Cananda where the food standards are much higher than the States. My young female cat immediately took a liking to the taste of the food. After extensively researching the ingredients I learned that the Ash content was a bit high. 8% or lower is ideal. Also there is belief through studies that to much protein levels can cause damage to the kidney's long term (UTI's, Crystals, Kidney Disease etc.) as well as weight gain which can cause diabetes. Because of the possible increase of weight, make sure your cat is extremely active if using this product. I do believe overall the ingredients are great however I don't want to risk the the possible negative side effects of the high protein levels. If in the future Petcurean, the company who makes GO would make a grain free cat food with lower protein levels as well as Ash I definitely would consider purchasing the product in hopes that my cat would like the taste as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ivypack I think I've found a great solution!
I have 2 cats. One is a smallish Maine Coon. He is a very healthy 7 year old. I got him at the Humane Society when he was 11 months. I also have a stray that I found in the street when he was several months old. Believe it or not he only weighed 1 lb and 4 oz and was able to eat adult kibble. Due to his malnourished state the vet didn't think he would make it through the week. Not my big boy, he is a surviver. Today he weighs close to 16 lbs. He is 5 now and loves to eat. My cats are indoor critters. They lounge around all day. They have towers and pillows and pet beds, 3 litter boxes, and I put food out, in 2 bowls, whenever the bowls are empty. Last year I was advised that my big guy was on his way to feline diabetes. I searched the internet for solutions. There are so many contradictory opinions from other cat owners. I tried a few low calorie kibbles--throwing cost to the wind. I paid for what I was convinced would be 'the solution'. Now I've purchased the Go! Grain-Free Chicken, Turkey, and Duck kibble. It is expensive. However I see that my guys are eating less. They took a couple of days to adjust to the recommended change over. Their stools are less stinky and more compact. I will know more in a few weeks when the big boy is weighed. But I think I've found the solution!
