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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Great food and cute name!

    By on

    I have gone back and forth buying fat cats because my local store would not always have the large bags. Thanks to chewy I will definitely be sticking to it. The cats like it and find that it has curbed their appetites a bit since they are grazing less.

  • Best weight loss food out there

    By on

    My cat was overweight, but thanks to this food he's losing those pounds. I have tried so many weight loss foods, but none of them were effective and my cat didn't really like them. This is the only food I've tried which my cat loves, and is very effective. I will definitely be purchasing this again!

  • Great cat food

    By on

    I've been using this cat food for some time. I decided to order from Chewy so that I could save time by not going to the pet store. In addition, Chewy has my litter in 40 pound bags, and saved me money.

  • Fat Cat...Going , Going........

    By on

    Vet told me my little girl is fat! Gave me samples of prescription food. One, two, three, four days-- neither cat touched it. Researched and decided upon FatCat because I've had such good luck with Natural Balance with one of my dog's allergies. They don't use fillers. The cats initially attacked this food then walked away. They were used to the stuff with all the junky fillers in it. FatCat is loaded with good healthy ingredients. They get one cup of food every morning to share. This food is higher in fiber and apparently satisfies them. Best thing::: my little girl has lost 1.2# in the last 3 weeks!!!

  • So I've got a FatCat!

    By on

    The only change is I think they would like it better if the kibble wasn't so small. Yes the diva cat doesn't like the little bits. Y'all know what I mean.

    Sochi, my female had put on a few lbs. She loves this new food. My, male, Flash wasn't in need of a reduced calorie diet. But, he loves it too.
