    Go-to nutrition

    By UnkyB on Oct 11, 2021

    I have 3 guys, one of whom will eat almost anything. The other two are predisposed to dry food, unfortunately, I would prefer to give them wet all of the time for the moisture, but it is what it is. Turns out, Nutro Wholesome Essentials is one dry food that all 3 will eat without fail. When my cats skip a meal, I start worrying, but fortunately it doesn't happen often. And it does my heart good to know they are getting the nutrition they need. I also use this for a treat around bedtime. I hide this kibble in the living room and dining room just before bed so they have a little hunting time.

    Best cat food

    By JaneG on Dec 17, 2020

    I bought this for my son’s cat because he eats my dogs food all the time. He loves this food. He mixed it with his old food and the cat picked out the old food and only ate this. Great job Nutro
