My Cats No Longer Eat this!

All three of my cats absolutely refused to eat this. They would just pester and pester for food and my male cat started to lose his hair and get sores on the back of his legs and under his chin. I had to take him to the vet, they told me he was having an allergic reaction. The only change made was this food, he is an indoor cat. My other two developed similar symptoms but not as severe, they only required some over the counter allergy meds. He actually lost quite a bit of weight refusing to eat this. They used to love this , food. I don't know what has changed in the formula if anything but I would not recommend this food now.

My senior cat is picky

My cat is 19 years old. His primary nutrition is from Wellness wet food, but he loves crunchy treats like Greenies, and wants to eat a lot more of them than the recommended amount, so I wanted to get him dry food as "treats", so that he could get more nutritional value out of it. He has no interest in this, unfortunately. Going to donate the bag to a local shelter.

Picky Cats Won't Touch It

3 Stars because I believe the quality is good, but none of my 6 picky cats would eat it. None of them would even try one morsel. For reference, all 6 like American Journey and Fussie Cat brands of dry food. I bought this because it was on sale and I like to rotate good quality foods to ensure the cats are receiving good nutrition.

Stopped eating after a week

At first my 8 year old cat loved the food as I tried to switch her over...but after a week she picked around it. Not sure if the pieces were to small or why she stopped but I have a full bag to donate because she won’t touch it.

Tasty cat food

My two cats really like this food. I don’t know what else to say but the post is requiring at least 50 characters.

No more bloody stools

My senior boy is 14+ And he’s always had trouble with bloody slime here and there. He’s also had vomiting issues galore. After numerous vets chocking it up to colitis or IBS we’ve finally found an answer! This food has been a life saver. His vomiting has drastically reduced to only once in awhile and he doesn’t have bloody stools anymore. In fact he now has a ton more energy. Love seeing my old man living his best life.

Not for us

This food did not work for us. It was too hard and neither of our cats would eat it.
