Cat's eat it. Cat's litter box smells less than other brands. Cat's however may be planning to kill me in my sleep since I refuse to give them wet cat food more than once a day.

Size: 15.5-Pound Verified Purchase
I'm not really sure what's going on here. I have used this food for my personal cats and fosters for over a year, but lately it seems like they like one bag, then I open the next and they start throwing it up everywhere. If I then immediately give them food from ANOTHER bag of the same food, they're fine again. Seems like there may be quality control issues? Or storage issues? All I know is that I'm not certain whether my cats are going to throw up from one bag to the next, and they ALL start doing it immediately with the bad bags. Obviously, when I get a bad bag, I don't make them eat it, and this has resulted in some waste, which basically negates the cost savings garnered from using Amazon. I remember this happening occasionally when I bought at a local brick-and-mortar store, but not nearly as frequently. Puzzled.

Thanks for your post. Your report is certainly unusual. We'd like to have you call our Consumer Affairs department at 1-800-445-5777 M-F, 8-5 CST to make a report and understand more about storage.

We want our pet parents to know that Hill's cares deeply about product safety and quality. We manufacture 100% of our dry pet foods in our own manufacturing facilities under the supervision of Hill's employees. Due to our stringent quality and safety programs, we are confident in the safety of our products. Since 2007, Hill's has invested millions of dollars in our facilities, manufacturing practices and formulas to reduce the risk of food safety issues. In fact, Hill's performs over 1,000 tests for salmonella at our manufacturing plants every month, and we do not release products from our facilities until our food safety testing is complete

We do recommend storing the food in the original bag. The bag should be stored in a cool, dry environment under 100°F (38°C). This is to prevent destruction of vitamins and oxidation of fats leading to rancidity. Pet foods will retain their best flavor if stored in the original bag, which provides a fat barrier. Storage at temperatures of 120°F (48°C) for more than 48 hours can accelerate the normal degradation or destruction of the vitamins.

This is the same kitty-formula food that our 4-month old kitten came home from the shelter with a sample bag. We had some adult science diet kibble (the ocean fish and rice) left over from our last cat and we are mixing the two together in a free-feeding style until the adult formula runs out (especially now that we have such a giant bag of kitten food now).

Our kitten prefers this stuff to the adult formula, so it must taste pretty good. I'm also not sure if it's the science diet, the natural aging process, or the amount of petting the cat now gets, but his coat has definitely gotten much, much shinier and silkier over the past month that we've had him. We also just took him to the vet yesterday and she definitely approved of using this formula for our cat until he reaches a year, since it's just a little bit better for his development than pure adult formula would be (though she saw no problems with feeding him half kitten chow and half adult chow).

So far, the zipper seal on the bag has worked to keep it sealed and the food fresh. However, having just one cat and feeding it two different formulas means that we'll be opening and re-sealing the bag A LOT and the zipper most likely won't last that whole time. We're planning on getting a tub of some kind eventually to put the food inside of to keep it fresh so that we don't have to rely on the zipper.

My kitten loves this food. It was the food that she had when she was at the shelter and my vet carries the Hill Science Diet Line for both dogs and cats. She rushes to her bowl when she hears the dry kitten food falling into her bowl.

My mother adopted two shelter kittens. The original plan was for her to keep one and give me one. They were kept in the same cage and play together so well, she now has both of them at her house and they are pretty therapeutic for her. This food the kittens seem to enjoy and is what the shelter feeds them. I do still encourage my mom to give them at least one meal a day with wet food to make sure they get a good protein fix while they are growing. The shipping was fast, the price was right and it sure beats driving around town in the Nevada heat looking for a place that sells the stuff, on top of the fact they would charge more. This was easy. All I had to do was have it delivered to my mom's front door by Amazon.

We offered out new kitten a choice between Hill's Science and Iams premium protection. Our cat eats all the Hill science and only eats the Iams if there is no food.

The Hill's Science is a bit softer so might be the reason. Our dog eats both when she gets a chance.

My kitten likes this, eats every bite, never goes off it and has done well on it.. He looks fantastic..strong muscular body, bright eyes, very energized, so I can't complain. Small size kibbles suitable for little kitten teeth. These higher priced brands tend to be more concentrated so a cat eats less of it than some other brands which helps offset the cost a bit. I do prefer the premium brands. You can also offset higher costs by purchasing a larger bag at lower per pound cost and tightly storing the portion of the bag not being used right away. He's just a few months away from adulthood now at which point I will decide which adult food to switch him too. I kept him on this because this is the food he was raised on before I adopted him, and the few times I tried switching him he got diarrhea from the change, so I thought stick with this his first year until he's full grown. However I'm on the side of preferring grain free foods for my cats in the long run..just my personal opinion, not an expert, and it's important to do the research and talk to your vet as to what food is best for your particular cat, his age and condition . This food contains corn which may be okay in the short run, but I've read that grains are slower to digest. When I do choose his adult food I will go with a combination of grain free dry as well as a grain free wet food(which contains more moisture). My adult female cat loves some of the grain containing foods but she immediately puts on excess weight from them so I prefer to give her grain free.

It's hard to write a review for a cat food, considering all cats/kittens may have different reactions or preferences. My kitten likes this food and I haven't noticed any issues, he isn't too picky anyway. I appreciate the fact that it doesn't have any by-products and it's recommended by my vet which is why I pay more for this compared to other brands. Great prices on Amazon, I bought this for 50% less than what the local pet store sells it for. The price did go up however, so keep an eye out for a decrease.
