    We have been feeding this food to our cats for about a year now. Their fur is shiny and they are very healthy. Our kitties really love this food. We recently ran out before time to order more, and had to purchase a different brand. Needless to say, but they didn't care much for it. When we got our order today they were so happy that they chewed through the bag before we could put it away. Donating the other stuff to our local shelter. Can't go wrong with this quality product.

  • I hate to rate this way but......

    My neighbor who only feeds her humongous cats this food and only this food. Her cats eat it like crazy so I thought I will get for my cats and it would be better than what I feed them. For 3 days I saw the bowl with the same amount in it. All the cats except the younger one would not touch it. Guess I will be going back to cat chow. I have to say that this food is excellent to feed your kitties as long as they are not picky like mine.

  • great food my 2 love it

    By on

    Great product, my 2 cats Olivia + Boo will eat no other dry food: Also give it to the 2 Free roaming cats on the property Buddy + Isabella Natural ingredients; no filler of any kind, what's not to like ? Okay it does cost more than the national brands, however if you compare nutritional value, it's a bargain.

  • Kitten to adult

    By on

    I started to ween off my 10 month old kitten from kitten to an adult food. During this process, I noticed that he seems to prefer the smaller sized nuggets of the kitten food compared to these triangular shaped pieces. He tends to make crumbs of it, but for the most part he has taken to this food quite well.

  • My cat is excited for food time!

    By on

    My cat ate Natural Balance reduced calorie formula until I introduced another cat into my house. With the extra playing and expending of calories, I switched him to the original Natural Balance. He loves it and looks forward to food time again! It was also an easy transition between the two foods.

  • He Likes it Better then His Dry Food!

    By on

    I have been mixing the new Natural Balance flavor with the last of the Natural Balance that is no longer available. He loved the other because of the pieces of dried treats that were in it. I had some concern he wouldn't like this new one...he's a cat. He liked it so much he ate the dry food before the canned food! I have never seen that before!

  • Natural Balance Cat food

    By on

    I am trying this new food because two of my 5 cats were developing goopy eyes. Put the old away and put this new on out. They did not seem interested at first, but by the next day they are all eating it and liking it. It looks like the eye problems are dwindling. Hope it lasts, so will buy more and give it a few months to see the difference

  • they love the flavor

    By on

    I had a cat that I was told had IBD, but he actually had undiagnosed cancer. Anyway, for a year I researched food for IBD. That is how we ended up with Natural Balance venison and green pea. When Petey passed, we just kept the other cats on it. However, I have recently introduced this flavor and they love it. They also like the canned, but not as much. Highly recommend.

    I feed about 26 feral cats which are humanly trapped and neutered or spayed. The coats and health's of these outside cats is great. They are fed the same food as our original 19 yo and only personal cat. With her gone now, the FCC (Feral Cats Coalition) keeps me very busy.

  • Good but not our favorite

    By on

    Our two cats like this pretty well, but it causes more gas for the little one than the Limited Ingredient duck formula. That formula has been out of stock lately, but I hope it is back in stock when we are done with this bag.
