Feeding Instructions

Cats, by nature, like to eat small meals frequently throughout the day. In order to satisfy your cat's nutritional needs and preferences, we recommend providing your cat with Authority Dry Cat Food in the morning, allowing him to nibble throughout the day. Provide your cat with a clean container of fresh water daily. Always consult your veterinarian with any health questions.

    My cat loves it!

    By on

    I had purchased other weight management food for my cat and he wasn't thrilled with any of it. He would pick at his food then continue to beg me for food all day. I decided to try Authority and he eats it right up. No more begging for food unless his bowl is almost empty.

    My "Fur Posse" approves!

    By on

    I have been trying several kinds of cat food on my two male cats. The are both total indoor cats and the younger one 'Smudge is long haired. The older cat, Harley is very large. Not heavy, just a very large cat who resembles a Bengal. He is a complete lover boy. I think I have found what I was looking for in this cat food. Authority for indoor cats with hairball problems is exactly what Smudge needed, and Harley was getting heavier than I wanted him to be. Harley is lighter, and Smudge isn't yakking up hair balls! Success!! Thank you Chewy. I love ordering for my dog Rowdy and my two cats through your company. Packages come in 2 days and the customer service is outstanding.

    Cats say yuck!

    By on

    I have 7 indoor/outdoor cats and they all would not eat this food. This if the first dry food they all refused to eat. Every morning I would normally have to fill their dishes with dry food and this particular dry food is completely full in their dishes. I would not buy this food again.

    Love this food

    By on

    My kitty loves this food. She's been on Authority her whole life but has been switched to the hairball and weight management for about 9 months now due to her getting frequent hairballs. She's a medium haired calico and I started noticing a decrease in hairballs within a month. I would definitely recommend this or just the hairball control to anyone with a medium or long haired cat.

    Not Impressed

    By on

    I was excited in trying a new food, 2 of my cats are fussy eaters. My regular brand is expensive was looking forward to saving money. One of my cats ate this but the others wouldn’t. Sticking to my regular brand even thought it’s expensive.

    Good Purchase

    By on

    My 3 cats are not fussy about their dry food, and they readily eat this one (which is a new brand for us). I needed a weight control food with high quality ingredients, and the hairball control was a bonus. The price was not outrageous. I'd purchase again.
