    List of nutritious ingredients. I am pleased that the protein comes from de-boned meat, so there's one less worry about excess phosphorous. I consider this product to be a high end item, so the price is reasonable. Finally, the cat enjoyed it. Difference between consuming a meal and enjoying a meal is that the cat promptly begins to eat when the kibble hits the bowl and she stays with it, rather than nibbling and then coming back later to finish the meal.

  • kitties not lovin it

    By on

    I wanted so much for this to be liked by my kitties. The ingredients are quality, unfortunately the taste just isn't there. I never got past the mixing with previous food point as they would ONLY eat the old food and leave every single morsel of the NULO brand.

  • Wish that my kitties were interested

    By on

    Based on the ingredients I was hoping to offer as an alternative to the selection of quality healthy food offerings for my fur babies. Unfortunately not one has been interested and all have rejected this food -- including the outdoor friendly feral cats. Trusting they know something that I do not, I'm not sure what to do with the remaining 10+ lbs of food that I am left with... Unfortunate.

  • Couldn't be more pleased...

    By on

    I was disappointed when Chewy informed me that they would no longer be carrying my usual dry cat food. But Chewy offered me a few alternatives and I chose Nulo. I'm glad I did; and my two cats are even happier. They took to it immediately.

  • Cats like it (transitioned from Orijen) and it's a great price

    By on

    No complaints on neither mine nor my cats ends. I switched to it after Orijen stopped selling their food through Chewy after their acquisition by PetSmart so tried out this brand as an alternative. The cats took to it right away and I love the price and ingredients.

  • Cats love it!

    By on

    At first my kitties were not too sure about this since the kernels are so small, but as seniors, they now realize how much easier it is to eat. The bowls are empty at the end of the day. Two paws up from my two kids.

  • So far so good

    By on

    I have 5 cats- soon to be 6, and they all have adjusted well to his transition. They really loved their Orijen food the best but honestly it got really expensive and really hard to find. The only problem I see with this food is the pieces are very tiny and my one cat has an overbite and some dental issues so it's a little hard for her to eat.. other than that it's been good. No side effects or reactions .

  • Nulo Chicken & Cod Grain Free

    By on

    Chewy gets 5 stars I deducted 1 per my kitties. Quality of product looked good to me but kitties didn't care about that, the scent combined with small kibble wasn't appealing to them. Thought it was because of Cat & Kitten but went to a local store that had the Adult Cat version still small kibbles & something about the scent? My kitties can be picky so might work out for someone else.

  • Good food liked by all all

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I only serve dry food as an adjunct to wet and freeze-dried. I like the ingredients in Nulo Freestyle Chicken and Cod except for the potatoes since it's a cheap filler. Other than that I think it's good food and my four cats as well as the feral cats I feed all seem to like it. This is the first time trying the food and I'm not sure if I'll buy it again due to the potatoes.

  • Excellent ingredients

    By on

    I thought the ingredients were good. The small food is a little hard for the cats to eat. My one cat won't touch it, the other just a few bites. They are picky and I have purchased other top and expensive brands and they are the same with them. I worry that they don't get enough to eat. Right now I have 5 different top brands and they don't care for any of them. I just gave away four other brands. This gets expensive. I do like the high protein value.
