BRAIN AND EYE DEVELOPMENT: Choline plus DHA and ARA fatty acids (like those found in mother's milk) support healthy cognitive learning and retinal function.
HEALTHY MUSCLE GROWTH: High-quality protein from deboned chicken helps build strong muscles.
ENERGY FOR GROWTH AND PLAY: Essential proteins and carbohydrates help meet energy requirements for healthy growth and play.
HEALTHY SKIN, COAT AND IMMUNE SYSTEM: Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids help develop a shiny coat and healthy skin. Essential vitamins, chelated minerals and important antioxidants help support immunity.
HEALTHY HEART AND EYES: Kittens cannot manufacture adequate amounts of taurine, an amino acid essential for healthy eyes and heart function. They must obtain this necessary nutrient from their food.
I hadn't tried my Kitty on this Brand of food until recently. My Kitty absolutely loves the Blue Buffalo Tastefuls Kitten Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe. He runs to his food bowl when he hears me pouring his food in the bowl. He cannot wait to devour it. I've put a bowl of his current food and a bowl of the blue side by side and every time, he chooses the Blue Tastefuls over the other. Knowing how much he loves this food, and he completely finishes the bowl of food every time, this will be the food I buy for my kitty from now on. I can highly recommend this for your Furbabies. Not only will they love this food, but this food is also very healthy for them.
My two kittens were very excited as I opened BLUE Tastefuls Kitten Chicken & Brown Rice recipe (they tried to open the bag themselves, actually). They quickly ate every morsel and seemed to enjoy it. I felt confident giving it to them, knowing it's made without chicken by-product and without corn, wheat, or soy. I will gladly switch to this product and continue buying it in the future. I'm interested in trying other BLUE Tastefuls products as they get older, too. I received a free sample in exchange for my honest review.
Since Blue changed the “look” of this dry kitten food, the quality dropped. There are whole grains and other debris in this version. Several bags in, it’s not a fluke. I’m not feeding rabbits here! I will never buy this food again. Pet food makers seem to be striving to make more money at any cost. A real shame.
I had an elderly cat who did very well on Blue Buffalo mature, indoor dry food for several years, So, when I adopted two 8week old kittens last May, I changed them to Blue Buffalo dry food to supplement their wet kitten food. They like it and because it doesn't have "meal" by products, and no soy, wheat or corn products added (according to the Blue Buffalo information), I will probably continue with Blue Buffalo when I switch them to adult food.
My 6 month old kitten will not eat any part of the food. Not even life source bits. Mixed small amount into his other kitten food. Tried an experiment with my other 2 cats and they walk away. Now I put some into a container for a friend who is feeding his cat. Again that cat refuses it also.
6 week old kitten Fria can eat it without too much trouble since the kibbles are tiny. However, she is a much bigger fan of the Blue Wilderness canned pate kitten foods and will choose those over the kibbles. I always keep a bowl of the kibbles out in case she gets hungry between soft food meals. Overall it seems to be gentle on her tummy and she is pooping regularly without straining. Big kitty Ranger is not as picky and is trying his hardest to steal her kibbles whenever possible so it's a 5 stars from him.
My new kitten loves this food. Only problem, one of the two bags I purchased had a hole in it. Shipping package looked fine. Because I will not be able to use said bag.
My kitten is a bit food happy, but she loves to eat her Blue kitten kibble. She purrs rubs her face in and on her bowl she loves it so much. The formula is on spot flavor and nutrient wise. It also has the preservative and added benefit of certain probiotics which helps with the stinky farts and poo she had when we first picked her up.
i tried to give this brand a go and my kitten got sick and threw up, she’s refusing to eat now
My kittens love this food. Their foster mom was giving this to them and I continued. No issues at all and they really do enjoy it.
