Transition Instructions

When switching your cat’s diet, we recommend transitioning from the current diet to our Fat Cats® Low Calorie Dry Cat Food over a 10 day period. Replace 10% of the current diet with our Fat Cats® Formula each day until they are fully transitioned. If you do not have any of your current formula to mix, reduce the amount of Fat Cats® Low Calorie Dry Cat Food fed for the first few days, feeding smaller more frequent meals and increase over time. Do not free feed.

  • Over weight kitty

    By on

    I adopted an over weight handsome kitty, who has a heart murmur. Being concered over his wide girth, I looked for a healthy alternative for him, so far he likes the "Fat Cat" by Natural Balance, to a point where he will eat the whold bowl, so I am giving him a little in the morning and a little a night. I have not seen any improvement yet but keeping my fingers crossed

  • Love how it works

    By on

    I have been buying this cat food for a year or so now. I had to mix the old cat food with the new Fat Cats for a couple of months because my cats would not eat it at first. Now they eat it just fine and there weight is good.

  • Too much "powder" in bag

    By on

    I don't know if this is the way the bag was handled but too many of the kibbles are ground into powder. I use an automatic feeder and every time food is released, half of it is powdered kibbles. Neither one of my 3 cats like it. I won't be ordering it anymore.

  • Good Results

    By on

    I got this to see if I could get some weight off my chubby kitty. He will not eat it on its own, but he doesn't mind it if it's mixed with another dry food. He has lost some weight and the fiber seems to have helped in the litter box department as well.

  • Great kitty food!

    By on

    We have one cat that loves to eat and she needs something low calorie. She loves the flavor so much she would eat this whole bag in one sitting. We also feed our dogs FAT DOGS by Natural Balance and they too love the flavor.

  • Best grain - free, low calorie cat food.

    By on

    After searching for a dry cat food that was both grain-free and low calorie, I discovered " Fat Cats" by Natural Balance. There is not a better option on the market that satisfies both criteria.

  • Cats don't like it.

    By on

    My cats are all fond of seafood flavor. I have previously been purchasing a senior cat food with that flavor that seems not to be made or available. A representative suggested this because it has salmon meal. What it apparently doesn't have is salmon flavor. so I am back to square one trying to find a senior cat food that my cats will eat.

  • Need to sift it

    By on

    Both cats love this product but I've found that the amount of powdery sediment is excessive once you get to the bottom half of the bag. I use a colandar to get the dust out of it but am also looking for an alternative in the meantime. I've also tried the Natural Balance low calorie kibble, but they prefer Fat Cats.

    This food has no by products in it. My cat is overweight and this food is starting to help that.

    Best price and fast delivery. My pudgy kitty still prefers the kitten's food but she still loves this.
