Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul Cat Food

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello, I just found this site today when I was trying to research different cat foods. My cat has had many different brands now and he eats all of them fine, but I want the best for him. He started out on Purina One for a couple of years and then we switched him to Iams. His coat looked amazing after switching to iams and he put on a couple of pounds. We then switched to Euk. and then I started to hear bad things about Iams/Euk so I tried Nutro. He didn't really like the Nutro very much (I think maybe the food pieces where too big) and right now he is on Maxximum from wal-mart. Now I found out that this stuff is made by purina so I don't know if I want to stick with that. One of the stores in my area started carring this Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul Cat Food and it seems to get awesome reviews here so I think I might try it next time. He seems to like the pieces of food to be small like Euk. and Maxximum is. You guys know how the chicken soup stuff is size wise?

Its about 1.25 cm I guess in a cross shape, I can take a pic when I get home! We use it as a weekend treat to help with the costs of Innova

It would be better than this Maxximum Nutrition stuff from wal-mart though right?

Now that my BF thinks I am completely crazy taking photos of cat food and asking him what would be good to put against it to show the size that everyone would have seen... here is the pic! (Boomer was 'helping' by eating them as I tried to take the pic - they were neatly arranged)

My mom keeps my dog on Chicken Soup dog food at home at the recommendation of my vet (who is also a trusted friend)... It's helped maintain her weight (She started having thyroid problems) and is low carb... I would assume the cat version would be equally as healthy (although would obviously have some different ingrediants).... wish I could afford to put Oliver on it up here at school but I simply can't....

LOL, that is funny. I usually use a CD for comparing the size of things. I've never drank tea, but everybody has a CD. lol Thanks for doing that though. Gives me a good idea or how big it is.

Thats a good idea, but at 6 in the morning the brain doesn't work well

What a cute name! I would try it just because of that.

Yes, a million times over.

I love it! For the price I don't think you can do any better. It has a little more grain than I might prefer but grain is the fourth ingredient listed (and one of the first three is chicken meal so you don't lose the water weight from that) and it is free of wheat, corn, and soy.

I think there are foods out there that are better but for me Chicken Soup is a good balance between excellent quality and reasonable price. Pound for pound it is quite a bit cheaper than Science Diet, Nutro, Pro Plan, Iams, and Eukanuba and even a bit cheaper than Purina One, all of which are definitely inferior quality foods. So this is one case where you don't necessarily get what you pay for!

Nutro is better than Chn soup... lb for lb your cat gets more because they digest more ... the omega are so much higher that the cat skin and coat are far better ... I like chn soup if you are on a tight budget because yes the food is much cheaper than many comparble foods...
