  • Convinced it's MAGIC

    By on

    I'm beginning to think this dry food is magic. Since we got our cat Odin at 6 months old, he has thrown his food around everywhere while eating and scooped it out of his bowl between munches. He never finished the food portion throughout the day; there was always leftover that he wouldn't ever eat. This new food, HE LOVES. Not a single piece of kibble is left in or around his bowl. And he eats it all in one sitting! Magic! What's more, my older cat has been discontent with his food for about a year. We've tried a bunch of food. He meows and cries all day long and is unhappy and seems hungry all day, even though he was eating. With this food, he is completely content! He munches it all down I'm beginning to think this dry food is magic.

  • They eat it

    By on

    My cats pretty much eat anything, I take comfort in knowing they at least get decent nutritional value from this food. My cat hasn't had bladder stones since I've been buying the higher quality foods. Gave this one a shot, they eat it.

    We had to switch food for my 2 cats and so far they seem ok with this new food. My recently rescued male seems to like it better than my female who is a little more spoiled.

  • My kittens love this food

    By on

    I have 2 Bengal kittens who love this dry food. I took it out of the Chewy box which they love to climb in and out of and left the food bag out on the table for less then 5 minutes to put my laundry in the dryer. When I got back to the kitchen they had chewed the bag and there was wall to wall dry food all over the place. I just shook my head and said, "well I guess it passes the taste test". They all but attack me when I take this out for them. So far it's there absolute favorite!

  • Likes it better than Fromms!

    By on

    Since Chewy quit carrying Fromms I tried this brand for my cat who thinks he's a tiger. He loved it, eating better (more) and looks better.

  • Yummy for kitty tummy

    By on

    All my 6 Maine coin kitties just love this food. Kibbles are small enough for even the 3 month old and 14 year old. Great food.

    My cats like this food, but it has given them a soft stool, so I will not purchase it again.
