About BLUE Buffalo

Blue Buffalo began with unconditional love and some furry inspiration from a large breed Airedale, Blue. When Blue's family started a pet food company, their vision was clear. They wanted every pet parent to be able to feed their pet with the same care they would feed family. So they created the #1 natural pet specialty food to help furry family members live happy, healthy lives. Of course, they named it after Blue.

  • New kitties

    By on

    I am going to get 2 9 week old kitties soon. They are rescues. I've had kittens before but not that young. The rescue association recommend this food. It is what they use. They say the food is very healthy for young kitties. I am sure that I will not be disappointed.

  • Blue Buffalo Healthy Living Dry Kibbles Cat Food

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Excellent choice for your growing kittens. Small kibbles packed with protein. You will feed less by purchasing a better dry cat food. Read the labels and compare.

  • Kittens like eating it

    By on

    My wife and I have a small cattery. Recently I compared this Blue Buffalo product with Royal Canin Kitten Chow (which we had considered the best), Wellness grain free chicken and chicken meal dry kitten food, Evo grain free turkey and chicken kitten food, and Whole Earth Farms grain free healthy kitten dry cat food. Kittens like eating Blue Buffalo MUCH BETTER than the other 4 products I offered. Evo came in a distant second. (Whole Earth Farms was refused by every kitten and every adult cat.) The purpose of kitten chow is to get the kittens weaned, and filling their bellies with dry food. It doesn't matter how healthy the ingredients are if the kittens won't eat it.

  • great quality

    By on

    I have a SPCAA kitten and 2 Shih Tzu's. Even though this is kitten dry food, my 2 dogs love it also. They are both elderly and the small pieces are great. My kitten is now 9 months old and she is taller than my dogs. I credit this to Blue Buffalo Kitten food.

  • Our kitten loves it!

    By on

    We got a kitten from the Humane Society that was pretty underweight, we were already feeding our adult cat Blue Buffalo and figured the kitten could use some high quality food. He seems to love the taste and has an easier time eating the smaller pellets than he did the large kibble type other brand, and he is also now in the proper weight range and growing really well.
