I feel like a good owner

Wow! Let me start by saying I have 3 cats and 1 is a fat cat. They are all 3 very picky eaters and I've tried to switch them to better food a few times, but they did not like it. I was expecting the same, or to have to ween them extremely slow, but as soon as I poured into their new bowls, all 3 starting eating before I could mix in their old food! I feel good about this purchase because of the ingredients in this food. My fat girl Queensie can't clean herself properly and it's quite sad. I'm having to wash her booty every day. I'm hoping that this food will get her to a healthier weight and help with her dry skin, as well as her sensitive stomach. You can smell the difference in this food verse a standard cheap brand that I was buying! It's been 2 days and no throw up spots. Super happy with Hills and Chewy!!!

Good for my fat boy

I've always fed my cats Purina One, but my newest cat loves to eat more than any other cat I've ever had - and so I needed a way to cut his calories without cutting his quantity. I mix Purina One Indoor Advantage with this Science Diet "light" for a higher protein mix, but with the same amount of food served daily. I have noticed a difference. He asks for food less often and seems to go longer between meals. For my Winston, this has been a good change. I might even have noticed a few ounces coming off his love handles, but that could be my imagination. Either way, I do think I'll keep up this routine for the foreseeable future.

7 out of 7 disapprove

I very slowly introduced this food into my cat's diet. I have a few chonky babies and I figured this may help them get it under control. Well, I was wrong, I underestimated my cat's intelligence completely. They would just eat around and soon enough the bowl of this food would remain and only get eaten as an absolute last resort. Not one cat of mine would gobble this up as I had hoped. I was already stretching it as this food is very expensive so it does cut into my budget, but I will do anything to help my cats stay healthy, so I splurged. I am very disappointed though. I have been head butted and meowed at numerous times as they beg for a different choice of food. They are very persistent when they want something, often choosing to pester me by knocking things off any table that is near me or walking in front of me or on me in an attempt to obstruct me from doing anything else. I will lose this fight for sure 7 little persistent cats versus me, I am outnumbered they win lol.

Hill's Science Diet

Hill's Science Diet is the only cat food our fur babies have ever ate. Our oldest girl is going on 16, and she has the most beautiful coat, just as it was as a kitten. Our 2 are both energetic, happy, and healthy cats!

Helped my fat boy cat

My three year old cat is very food motivated and became overweight by eating snacks left by my young kids. Started him on this food and he has lost 3 pounds in 3 weeks. Very happy with this product

When i went to open the box i didn't realize the cat food bag was open. When the box opened up half of the cat food went everywhere. Other than that, i haven't had any issues with the auto ship service.
