    We have transitioned our 4 month old kittens to this food from Purina Complete. Their poops are a little to soft at this point because this food is rich. We have mixed in a mid-grade food to help them get used to it but if they aren't handling it better in a few days, I'm returning it per the instructions on the side of the bag.

  • This is what the breeder fed my cat, so I'm staying with it!

    By on

    I find that this is an excellent product. My Devon Rex breeder fed this to my kitten before she came to her forever home with me. I'm feeding her the same food and it has proved beneficial to my kitten's digestion. Don't want to rock THAT boat on her first few days at home :). Love it.

    I just got my kitten 2 days ago, I knew she was so hungry because we had a long trip home from the breeders. She would not eat the food she was eating when she was still there. A worker at Petco advised me that this food was also for cats that are picky eaters. I put together this dry food, and the canned food. She loves it!

  • Appreciate the effort, but cat isn't a huge fan

    By on

    Switched brands to go for grain-free. He'll eat it, but he's started meowing loudly even when his bowl is full just waiting for wet food rather than eating his dry food.

    Food is less expensive on chewy vs going to a pet store and always having to pay 10 to 20 dollars more for the same food you can find on chewy I already have up on pet stores and now buying from chewy for life

    The price is right for such a large bag of grain free. So many times “grain free” equals “you can’t afford it” but I was surprised! Unfortunately, I believe our 2 cats are snobs when it comes to food. They literally leave the bowls of food sitting for days. We give them soft food for dinner and they would refuse to eat the dry. They have always noshed on their dry food throughout the day. Not with this food. I actually had to combine this bag with another bag I bought so it wouldn’t get wasted. Maybe they just don’t like the flavor. Who knows? They won’t tell me.

  • my kittens love it!

    By on

    I have not had kittens since the 1990's and I never realized how finicky they are about food ... but they love this food. The ingredients have deboned chicken as the #1 ingredient so I feel confident that I am feeding my kittens well. There are no fillers such as corn meal, soybean meal or wheat gluten. Protein is 41% which is higher than commercial grocery store brands. I feel confident that I am feeding my sweet Hadrian and Oscar excellent food that will help them develop and live healthy lives.

  • Awesome for Kitty

    By on

    My kitty likes this food and I am happy to have her eating a food that has good ingredients, including a higher protein level than most kitten recipes contain.The bag has a unique sealable top that works similar to Velcro so it's easy to close and the food will stay fresh longer. The price is pretty good and shipping with Chewy was fast. I would definitely recommend this food.

  • Angel likes it. . . that's all that matters.

    By on

    Angel is a rescue kitten found in a box in the park one chilly morning. He is the only one of four kittens that survived the night apparently. . . my friend buried his siblings and brought Angel to me to care for. This was Angel's first dry food and he really likes it. He also eats the Merrick wet food for kittens. He's frisky, growing, and affectionate.
