I've never tried it because IMO it's not the best food.... but have you tried feeding wet food? Some cats will gobble down wet before they'd touch dry... but with some it's the other way around. I've recently discovered that sprinkling brewer's yeast on the food will get them to devour it in a flash. My cat is super picky and just a sprinkling of brewer's yeast gets her to dive right in. Keep trying!

i have found my little ones LOVED it!! and it is better then alot of foods out there, so if they will eat it, its fine. But i would try to add wet food to their diet too.

no, probably isn't the best but i have tried many that are considered to be and he won't eat them .. he's on nutro natural choice indoor care and the other two eat California naturals but he won't, i like a couple kibble choices so this was one i had a sample of and he did like it when offered.

They all get wet, twice a day

yeah, i don't think it's as good as the california naturals my other two will eat but i don't think it's too bad and i have tried so many with him and he just won't eat them.. picky, picky boy lol

Long time ago someone told me never to feed the ProPlan cat food - it made the coats too dry. So I never tried it.

I feed Blossom Purina One kitten dry & she's done ok on it. My son's dog Sooty has also been fed Purina One dog food & did better on it than cheaper supermarket foods. The Pro Plan is more expensive & in Oz you need to get it from a pet warehouse which isn't always convenient.

The only other food i can think of to try would be felidae chicken & rice, recently one of the shops i buy food at has brought that in.

i would really like him off of food w/corn in it but trouble is he has way different ideas.. at least the other two are co-operative

If he issist s on a food with corn in it .. He is telling you something.. that is likely he needs some ... For some it is a neautral grain( not likely to cause inflamation or stiffness ) or for what it does for UTI health...

My vet has a paper about foods ... Her suggestion is avoid by products , chemical prervatives and any coloring s ... She put s a paragraph in about corn ... just to make sure it is not the main protein source but a little is fine

interesting!

it's all so confusing, their are so many conflicting pieces of info on corn being in food for cats, it's hard to sort out what is the right balance.
