    out of 8 most if not all like this food

    By on

    I feed 3 varieties to 8 cats. since I started on this food it is by far the one that gets eaten the most, at least 2 to 1 over the other varieties I feed. I had previously used nutro grain free chicken but after being advised by more than 1 vet that they wouldn't recommend 100% grain free diet I tried this as a replacement. with 8 picky cats this food has better acceptance on the whole than any other food I've tried. I can't say all 8 favor it but the majority do and I've come to the conclusion that finding something all 8 favor would be nearly impossible.

    We're starting on this food, since the weight management has been discontinued. It was recommended by my Vet, and they seem to LOVE it!

    My cat likes this food just fine but he eats anything so don't know how good it tastes. I tried this because he has food sensitivities. This seems to work for him.

    So far so good

    By on

    My kitties food was discontinued (Nutro Max Cat) so I wanted to get him the food closest to what he had been eating. This was the same brand, but with newer ingredients and actually cleaner and better then what he was eating. He seems happy with it So I’m happy.

    My Cat Loves It

    By on

    This is such a quality food in wonderful packaging that is like a zip lock bag to keep freshness. I’ve been feeding my cat the same food for 11 years and I was nervous to switch her. I did 50/50 for 5 days but she took right to the food and loves it!

    Rascal turns 1 year old in May!

    By on

    I was glad to find this adult food as my Rascal turns 1 year old next month and I wanted to keep him on Nutro Chicken flavor, as he loves the Nutro Kitten Chicken flavor. He has done really well on the kitten formula. He has grown into a big healthy cat.

    My cat LOVES this food!

    By on

    It is non GMO, which is important to me, and my cat absolutely LOVES this food. She tries to tear open the bag as soon as I take it out of the box. Also, her stools are perfect, not runny and smelly like they were on her previous food. I hope they never stop making this

    Finicky Cat sorta approves

    By on

    My cat's been eating the NutroMax all her life so when it was discontinued, I knew finding a suitable replacement wasn't going to be easy. She's somewhat approving of this but she's certainly not sold on it yet.
