I think this is the BEST kitten dry food available

I breed rare, hypoallergenic cats. Not many litters per year, because my breeding cats are extremely valuable. The health of their kittens is of extreme importance to me. Wellness, Blue Buffalo, and Merrick were my go-to brands before. But after some of these companies were bought out by less reputable industries, I wasn't pleased. Enter American Journey and their line of cat and kitten foods! I believe that this is THE best kitten kibble on the market today. The ingredients surpass all of the other brands, and our kittens eat it with gusto and thrive on it. It's simply the best IMO. I must caution all cat lovers here, however, to use wet food more than dry for your babies' urinary health.

7 month old kitty loves it

I ordered this because of its ingredients, and because my kitty was just a little underweight at 7 months. So I wanted to get something rich in nutrients and calories for her. It took her a day to get used to it because I forgot to mix together the old and new, but now she loves it!

Great grain-free option

This brand has everything I am looking for my two 6 month old black cats. They enjoy the flavor as a complement to their wet food diet. I wish the bag came in a bigger size, but for being grain-free it is a decent price compared to other brands.

Ziggy loves it!

Our little boy didn't need a bit of convincing to gobble this up. We switched to grain free when we figured out that grain made the little guy drop atomic stink bombs. We had switched to Blue Buffalo grain free and the problem cleared up but the price was hard on the budget. I was so happy when we saw that Chewy has their brand at a much better price and our Ziggy loves it! Thanks Chewy!

Big hit - but with older cat...

I generally only feed wet food, but our two kitten additions seem to be constantly hungry during this huge growth period. Three cans x 2 kittens is expensive enough as it is -- so I thought I'd get some quality dry kitten food to supplement for added calories. Well, the kittens have no problems eating it, but they aren't as passionate about it as the canned food. No big deal -- it serves its purpose. However, after about two weeks of adding some to their dishes, I noticed that one of our adult cats was looking a bit more "fluffy..." Turns out that our fatty-magoo has developed a real addiction to this kitten grub. She hides and waits until I leave the room and clears out the kittens' bowls. I even put their bowls in a very tight location for her. She is not to be kept from her kitten food snack, as she wedged herself in to clear it out. So, apparently, it must be relatively tasty.

Kitten loves it

My kitten actually loves this more than the Merrick food we were giving her. Unfortunately the bag is huge and since we feed her a combo diet, this is probably her first and last bag!

Putting Celia back on the kitten food has helped her become more active, and more kittenish.

Great for picky kitties

I tried multiple different brands and my kitty would barely touch her dry food until I switched to American journey. I do think it’s beneficial to switch the flavor every now and then however, especially if your cat is picky, but I will still stick with the brand

Yeah - it's small bites!

Tiny bites for tiny mouths, my teen and senior cats are loving it.

Too big- not well thought out!

Not only are the morsels too big- they are bigger than the American Journey cat food for adults. So they cant say they dont have the equipment to make the kibbles smaller. Fortunately Teddy has way more natural sense as a kitten than these food scientists and only eats the raw chicken and totally ignores these weird things that try to lure him and hook him. Just a note on the American Journey adult food, our cats love all the flavors. That's why we were hoping to get the kittens started on the kitten variety- but they chose otherwise, wisely! Raw chicken it is for life.
