nutro indoor formula - Page 2

post #31 of 56
I recently just took both of my cats off of Nutro! I wanted to try the Wellness line! My cats loved Nutro!!!! I had my overweight cat on Nutro Natural Choice Weight Management Indoor Formula and he adored the big crunchy pieces! Did he loose weight? NO... He is quite active and limited to portioned meals and no results! Am I bitter? No he is only 3 pounds overweight! I had my kitten on Nutro Max Cat Kitten and recently switched her to Wellness! I am going for a wet/dry food combination right now (hopefully in the future a wet food only) therefor I've been playing around with my options! As for the hairball formula Im unfamiliar... my cats almost never have hairball issues! I dont see any major issues with the line but I wanted something of better quality (personal preference and opinion)! Best of Luck! Now my overweight bugger is on Wellness Healthy Weight dry (he wont touch wet food) and he is having a hard transition since Nutro pieces are huge and Wellness pieces are teeny tiny!

He he about the pieces /// My vet and I actually had a chat about that ... as like my Zoey she also has one eating nutro due to the sharpe of the kibble

Seriously he doesnt know how to eat the Wellness! I had no idea the pieces were so small! When he tries to chew the tiny chunks it falls out of his mouth and so sometimes he swallows em! Their small like birth control pills hehe! My poor fatty and the torture his mom is putting him through! When I got him (my bf's cat for years) his parents had been feeding him purina and I didnt like that so I switched him to Nutro... That was a funny transition too since Purina pieces are small he had a hard time adjusting to Nutro! Ahhh the frustration!

My cats are on the indoor Nutro Natural but not the weight management type..they love it and look good & healthy

I know my tiger loved his Nutro but it isnt doing anything for him (weight wise) so I decided to experiment with something else... My kitten actually loved eating the Nutro Weight Management more then her Nutro kitten! I was shocked that she could handle such hearty and big pieces of food... What a champ!

They always want what they can't have, don't they? I wonder if I purposely put the wrong food in front of each cat, if they would all eat what was intended for them.

LOL! Very true! I have some Nutro food left and when I went to fill Tiger's bowl I put all Wellness in it and a few chunks of Nutro! He looked at me as if he had been jipped! If you want to eat buddy, you eat what mommy supplies! Its like trying to get a kid to eat their vegetables!
post #38 of 56
LOL. My cats eat anything I give them..They love the nutro indoor formula but I gave them a little sample of chicken soup and they loved it too!!!

Plus I can't leave any chocolate pies or corn muffins in the kitchen unless I watch it close.
post #39 of 56
Oh definitley keep on eye on those human goodies! My cats wont touch people food! It's weird but probably a good thing! tiger tried ranch dressing once and licked a goldfish cracker... thats as bold as he got! i never tried giving human food to my kitten therefor she doesnt know what she is missing out on!

Tiger sounds really cute.


I have two male cats both around a year old. These are my first fur babies! I made a chocolate pie and went to check on it and their were a few bites missing out of it...YIKES! And then on another occasion I found Kilowatt taking a bite of a corn muffin on the kitchen counter...so now I don't leave any food out unattended at all. And I do the dishes really quick. LOL.

They can only have thier Nutro and Cat treats!

Thats good! I would be in trouble if my cats ate human food! Sometimes I leave something out but they dont touch it! Theyre disgusted... Dont know what they are missing out on and thats fine by me! I was a sucker and would give my dog human treats here and there (RIP) but not with these furballs!
post #42 of 56
That is great they have no interest in people food! That makes it easy. Mine are beggers. Both of your cats look so cute.

Trixie! Please let me know how the wellness line works for weight loss. I have my cats on the Nutro weight management indoor and it isn't really working. Their coats are lovely but my one cat is still fat fat fat. (And she isn't even the one that likes to steal cheese off the kitchen counter!)

JUST AN FYI ... Cats are carnivore s and THUS wt mgmt often doesnt work for all cats it is kinda a 50/50 ... some cats need atkins( ie evo core raw instict ) other need jenny craig( typical wt mgmt )
post #45 of 56
I'lll let you know how it works! I think my cat is just fat and that's that! Strange too since I don't over feed him and he has been extremely active since I got the kitten! He plumped up when he was living at my bf's dads house (they would fill his dish whenever he whined... which is constantly) they were feeding him Purina (yuck)! Then when I got him I put him on Nutro and he actually got fatter! Go figure! I will definitley tell you if it has any effects! He finally started to like the wellness dry food as of last night!
Nedra your cats are adorable! I've always wanted a black kittie! Megabyte reminds me of Tiger! The second picture reminds me of they way him and the kitten play! I need to get new pictures on here.
post #46 of 56
Trixie,

I agree Megabyte does look a lot like Tiger!! So cute. I would love to see updated pics!
post #47 of 56
They're on my digital camera! Got pics of him cleaning the kitten and them hugging eachother! Oh my babies!!!!
post #48 of 56
Ohh that sounds adorable.

I use Nutro Indoor cat and love it. I tried switching to different brands (IAMS, RC, Purina Pro) and had a few kitties throwing up or have really dull looking coats. So I went back to Nutro Indoor. Now everyone has beautiful coats again and no more throwing up.
post #50 of 56
Thats good! Nutro is a better line than Purina and IAMS (this is my personal opinion)! As long as it works for your kitties and they are healthy I am happy for you! Too bad my fatty didn't drop any pounds on it!

I actually used a wt control to fatten up my girl
post #52 of 56
Really! Too bad I can't do that for my kitten yet! I just feel she is so frail and small! She's only 4 pounds @ 7months! She does love to eat my older cats weight management foods! The vet said it won't hurt her as long she still eats her kitten formula! Will wet foods plump her a bit?

wet usually doesnt plump but it can if you get the right %
post #54 of 56
Im new to the % stuff! It gets confusing! She does love the wet food though! I have to get her more since I only bought one can for a trial basis! I love watching her eat and enjoy it!
