    Searched all foods for good ingredients; good customer reviews; & tasty food options for my kittens. Been about two months since I’ve been using this food and my kittens go crazy around meal time for this. Mixed with their kitten Dry food; I have found the perfect mix that lasts time and isn’t breaking my budget. Great quality food; kittens are playful and active & have great shiny coats.

    Cat wasn’t crazy for it

    By on

    This is the latest of new brands I’m trying out. My cat ate the food, but not enthusiastically. He’d leave lots of the kibble behind uneaten. I thought he would like it, especially with the impressive ingredient list. Now, I had to buy another brand and mix it with the Nulo to have him eat the food. Unfortunately, I won’t be purchasing Nulo again.

    Yummy Food

    By on

    I purchased this product because my cat is a free range and I wanted to keep her with the same thing that she started eating out in the wild. The pellets are digestible the right size for a kitten or an adult cat. Thank you so much for making a great product and it's American made can't get any better than that...(she loves all flavors).

    High in Protein but Tiny Kibbles

    By on

    I was excited to try this food because it is so high in protein and while my 4 cats seemed to like the flavor they are having a really hard time eating such small kibbles. That is why I can't give it 5 stars. I will have to mix it with another dry food so they can eat the tiny bites. I wish Nulo would offer this food in another size for large adult and senior cats.

    No hairballs, this bag goes a long way!

    By on

    Nulo Freestyle Chicken & Cod Recipe Grain-Free Dry Cat & Kitten Food last's my two adult cats well over a month, sometimes longer so if the price has you worried, trust me, it's plenty! You are getting a really good deal. Both my cats love it, I trust the sources of the ingredients, the probiotics are also something the other brands just don't offer. It also keeps my cats coats shiny, it keeps them full and it gives them tons of energy.

    I paid a lot of money for the bag to not be resealable. Not too happy about that.

    This is a Winner

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    So, it's low in sodium, phosphorus, my cats love it and it's for all life stages. I can't ask for more, unlike my Furbabies who want more all day long! The pieces are very small but even my oldest gets it down. I want to thank the Customer Service woman who helped me find it, I should have written down her name. She went above and beyond, I Thank You, from the bottom of my heart.

    My Kitty loves it

    By on

    Switched from a different grain free formula to this because I wanted to try reducing potatoes and tapioca from my kitten's diet. She took to the transition well because as she's gotten older she's opened up to flavors other than chicken. I gave 4 stars because it's too early to see results in her coat. My kitty does love the food though - I feel like she's eating more than normal!!
