I just bought a large bag of Performatrim for Bijou and Mika yesterday. I am currently feeding Bijou a natural food (can't remember the name) and he eats it but prefers Mika's Performatrim kitten food. Since he is 14.7 lbs (not your typical Siamese I don't think), I figure he doesn't need kitten food but it's hard to keep him away from it. Besides now that Mika is out with Bijou all the time, she eats his food too. Having said that, I decided to just feed them both the Performatrim maintenance.

Our vet said Performatrim was one of the best quality foods so we shall be using it from now on. I believe it is the house brand of PetValu and is not available at other pet stores. I could be wrong about that though as I'm prone to "senior moments".
