They also include a special blend of Happy Tummeez prebiotics and probiotics for digestive support.

I want to know how it can be nutrionally valuable for all ages of cats.
Answer by ChewyJan 29, 2019
The basic life stages recognized by AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials), the organization that sets the standards used by US pet food manufacturers, are Adult Maintenance, and Growth/Reproduction. The latter includes everything that isn't simple adult maintenance: gestation (pregnancy), lactation (nursing) and growth (puppies and kittens). This food meets the requirements for adult maintenance as well as the more stringent nutritional requirements for growth and reproduction.

Do you need to wean your cats to this from a different dry food?
Answer by ChewyJan 09, 2019
It's important to introduce the new food into your pet's diet gradually. To ensure a happy tummy, we recommend transitioning your pet to “I and love and you” using this easy 10 day schedule. Day 1 - 3 25% "I and love and you", day 4 - 6 50% "I and love and you", day 7-8 75% "I and love and you", day 9-10 100% "I and love and you".

I and love and you dry kibble

I bought this because it is for all stages of life. Not one of our 3 cats will eat this. I have given it dry in the feed on demand bowls and mixed with the same brand canned food. They just will not eat this food.

My Cats Loved it, But ... .

Both of my cats love this stuff. I loved the ingredients and the price in that order. However, after about a month and a half of feeding my buddies this food, I started noticing excessive scratching. After examining both cats closely, I came to the conclusion that they both had very dry skin and their fur seemed to be courser than normal. My older cat even started doing the boot-scoot across the floor after every dump. I ordered a bottle of Omega-3 Pet. After three days and three doses of the Omega-3 Pet, both of my cats are on their way to recovering. In just three days, you could see and feel a difference in both cats' coats. Although this food advertises Omega-3 and Omega-6, it is lacking in them, or the food was cooked at too high of a temperature making the Omegas useless.

Can’t Get Enough

My 2 strays can’t get enough of this food. For strays, they are pretty picky eaters. Thankful to have found this brand.

dry cat food

None of my cats would eat this food. I have 4 cats but there are 2 strays that come around so I put some out for them. Well I opened the front door the other day and a possum was eating it. So I filled the bowl again and I saw the possum the next night. So possums will eat it, just not my cats.

Excellent food

I have a picky kitty who can’t tolerate grain foods. I have tried many and some very costly. with this food not only does the kitty love it and it agrees with him , but it’s very cost effective! Highly recommend!

Kitty Biscuits Fave Food Flavor

This is our go to flavor. The kitties love it. The kibble size is perfect and crunchy. We mix it with a quarter can of wet I and Love and You in a variety of flavors. That way they get the best of both worlds and the wet food adds extra flavors so they don’t get bored. This brand is great.

Not the same

I have purchased this item in the past and my cat ate it and liked it. In fact, she is still eating from the older bag. I opened the new bag when it arrived and the kibble is tiny. She won't eat it. I mix it in with what is left of the old bag (both bags look pretty much the same, no mention of kibble size) and she picks out the older, larger kibbles and leaves the tiny ones. I read the ingredients. She's not lying. It isn't the same food in ingredients, calories, or size/shape. I and Love and You company is like the food - it looks the same but it hasn't been the same company for some time.

great food

Honestly I am a new cat owner and wasn’t sure what to feed my cat. I started using this food and my cat loves it. I talked to my vet about it and she said the brand has no issue but they don’t have a dietitian but she said it wasn’t a bad brand
