Cat food a miss

I was looking to switch my cat over to an allergy friendly food and the representative with Wellness suggested this food. My cat seemed interested in it while I transitioned to the new food, but as soon as she was solely eating Core, she turned her nose up at it. My cat gets very excited about food so I was surprised that she didn’t want to eat this. My dog loves her Wellness brand food, but the cat food was a miss.

Not impressed

The truth, I'm not impressed with this food. My cat isn't either. It looks good but it smells like sawdust. My cat won't eat it and he usually LOVES fish. Wellness is a high quality food and I'm not saying it's inferior, it's just this particular food is not up to this company's usual quality.

cats will not eat this food

Not sure what happened but my cats stopped eating this food. Had two bags on hand and gave them to a friend that feeds feral cats and they would not eat it either.

Both cats love it!

One of my cats is very picky with dry food and this is one of the few she actually likes.

I buy this exact same brand/flavor for my pup and my cat has always seemed interested in his food. But I was nervous ordering this for my cat because of all the reviews of users saying their cats wouldn’t touch it. Guys, my cat was a fiend for this food. He gobbled up the dry food like he hadn’t eaten in weeks (I assure you he is well fed haha). If your feline is a fiend for fish, they will love this food. I’m sure of it. I bought a 2 pound bag just for him to try in case he didn’t like it and I’m back on this site 20 hours later setting up an auto ship order.

Wellness Wet and Dry Products are the Best in the Marketplace

My 2 year old cats still love Wellness and fish flavors are their favorite. When they were kittens, we soaked Wellness kitten dry food with hot water so they could easily have a meal. Now they love Wellness Core Salmon & Herring - and get high marks on all well visits at the Vet.

It's Yummy, They Say

It's so weird that some people have three cats who won't touch it, and someone else has 14 that all love it. My two cats both love this food! It's a win!

Toxic ingredient

All mint plants are toxic to cats including spearmint. Why is something that's not safe for cats in this dry food?

The item came highly recommended by the foster parents of the two cats I adopted so I ordered two 5 lb. bags and my cats won’t touch it. I went to the store and bought a bag of Purina cat food for much less money and they both eat it. So I’m stuck with 10 lbs of expensive dry cat food.

Cats are not interested

Both my cats are not interested on this food. Tried it once, and once will do.
