Pros: high protein, lots of meat, meat for the first SEVEN ingredients, grain-free, gluten-free, low carb
Cons: a bit expensive, a bit smelly
I can't sing enough praises for this food or this brand, honestly. One look at the ingredients list and I was sold. I only offer kibble as a nighttime snack, and only about 10-15 pieces that are put into a rolling Kong, but I still wanted it to be a high quality snack. Kismet, our dry junkie, always comes running over when she hears the dry food container. She took one whiff of the surprisingly fishy smell and went nuts to get more. She LOVES it.
It's grain-free, gluten-free, the meats come first in a big variety and there are tons of them, and for those who are concerned with byproducts, there are none in this food. It's only about 13.5% carbs
Also, I contacted their customer service to see if they had their sample size - 0.5lb - available or if I could order it directly from them since I was having trouble finding it in my area. The representative got back to me within 3 hours, asked for my general location and what my cats' needs were, she made some nutritional suggestions based on what I described, and forwarded my request to someone who operated in my area. Within the next 24 hours, I received another reply from the same representative telling me the exact store and address where this product was in stock. Stellar support, stellar brand, making stellar food.
For cats who tend to inhale their food, it is important to note that these kibbles are smaller than other brands - averaging around 3/4 the size of Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul and Whiskas-sized kibbles.
