The Bottom Line
This food is fantastic for either a growing kitten or an adult cat! The ingredients work together to support numerous parts of your pet’s body. What is even better is that kittens and cats who are sensitive and have food allergies will not experience any uncomfortable side effects from this food.
The manufacturer of this particular brand aims to satisfy the instinctual food cravings that kittens and cats get. It seems to be effective because it contains both meat and seafood (chicken fat is especially effective because it adds a ton of flavor!) Please note that the bags of this food come in two different sizes: 5-lbs and 14-lbs. You can purchase the bigger bag for only double the price of the smaller one. That is a great deal!
Do not feed this food to pets that have or have had any urinary tract or kidney problems! Always check to make sure if any ingredients are harmful to your kitten or cat if they have a history of health problems. Consult your vet if you are unsure.
