Paws cat food

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Recently I came across a new brand of cat food in one of my local grocery stores. Being a label junkie, I squinted as hard as I could and was suprised to see a notable lack of grains in the ingredients list, especially for such an inexpensive food. I took some home and have been trying it out, and my conclusion is that it's not bad at all. Especially given the price. I'm wondering if anyone else has used this food and what your opinions are.

A lack of grains? Ok, but it looks like the food is mostly corn, and what's with all the artificial colors?

for a supermarket food, it's not bad... the premium one, anyway.
i found one similar, ingredient-wise, at my local Kroger. called "Disney" food, has Simba & Nala on the package. it's the best i've found in the grocery store - sometimes i need food & can't make it to the pet or feed store at the open hours. grocery is open 24 hours a day.

I've fed the Paws Professional to the outdoor cats. It's comparable to Wal-marts and Sams Maxximium nutrition. Even looks identical and the formula is very similar.
An ok food, no dyes or weird preservatives - so I assume that might be the one you're referring to? http://www.pawsforpets.com/cat_food_pro.htm If not, I wouldn't suggest the two lower quality ones they make.
