Questions & Answers

A bit confusing. Please explain differences between Nude and Naked Essential and Limited Ingredient dry cat foods. Not sure if I missed any other of the dry under the I and Love and You cat food, thanks.
Answer by ChewyMar 15, 2019
The Naked Essentials line is a grain-free cat kibble, packed with real meat and prebiotics and probiotics to help digestion. The Nude Food line is a super-premium, high-protein, grain-free cat food with superfoods, plus digestive enzymes, prebiotics and probiotics. The Lovingly Simple line are for pets with sensitive stomachs. This limited ingredient kibble is packed with high-protein meats, not from known pet food allergens like poultry and beef.

I'm looking for a low sodium kibble and wet food. Would this food fall under that discription?
Answer by ChewyMar 30, 2018
This product contains .53% Sodium.

What is the phosphorus level in the cat kibble ??
Answer by ChewyOct 02, 2020
This formula has a phosphorus content of 0.49% on an as-fed basis (0.53% on a dry matter basis).

My cat has difficulty chewing some brands of food as the kibble is very hard. Is this kibble easy to chew?
Answer by ChewyMar 07, 2019
The kibble for this formula is considered on the hard and crunchy texture. We recommend adding a little water into the kibble to help soften and make it easier for your pet to chew.

My cats have been eating IandLoveandYou dry cat food. I always had to put in IandLoveandYou wet food for them to eat it. Not now, my stubborn female eats this dry! I was in shock when I went to pick up her bowl, it was clean! I might just be able to get them both on dry food now. And save some money. I would highly recommend this cat food for a finicky cat.

my cats love it

I have two cats, a momma and her baby. Momma kitty is super picky about her food. one of her favorites was meow mix tender centers but after some research i learned that the added dyes and grain wasn’t good for them so i started searching for something better. first, momma is so picky about the brand, won’t eat cheap food OR any variations of fish in dried food. i tried this and i have NEVER seen her love a food so much! i’m actually going to have to watch her portions

I and Love and You not so loved by my cats

My cats are unusual in that they love new food. I never have that "break-in" period where I have to slowly mix the new food into the old; they dive into new dry food. When I received the new bag of I and Love and You dry food, Chicken and Duck recipe, I put out a small bowl next to their beloved Solid Gold dry food. Ten days later it remains untouched. In these inflationary days, it upsets me to have the expenditure for a bag of food that NONE of my SIX cats will touch.

I and Love and You is the only food I buy. If I get any other brand my cats throw up a lot.

Delicious cat food!!

My cat usually has problems with her cat food ( throwing up ). I tried this brand at random and fell in love with it. My cat has stopped throwing up and Enjoys this food. Since switching to this brand I’ve also seen changes in her fur (soft,shine,very little shedding). I highly recommend this food brand.

Both cats love it.

Both our cats are rescues and they love this food. Our cat Dany had rough fur when we first adopted her. After a few months of eating this her coat is so soft and fluffy just like our other cat. We didn't even have to ween her off the shelter food she just dove in. They come running for it. The wet food is a hit as well.

Great Food

Our 16 yr old cat has trouble with foods... she usually throws them up. This is the only food that we have found that she has no problem eating. The bites are small enough to be swallowed whole without her choking too. Great food vitamin wise also... she has put on weight so that she does not look like bones.

Miracle cat food!

I tried this food on a whim, when nothing was working. My cat has IBD and FIV and was having diarrhea and losing weight. I didn't realize that changing his food alone, could make such a difference. Within one week of eating exclusively this food, he gained back the weight he lost and his stools returned to normal. I was so surprised. The duck is a really good ingredient for sensitive-stomach cats, and the probiotics also really help. And he loves eating it. I am thrilled to have found this food!

Cats won't eat it

Bought it because it is grain free and I was out of her other food and so was the store. Kitty went hungry until I bought something else.

Delicious say my cats

Found all my picky cats loved this food. I still mix it with Purina Beyond, but would recommend
