Compared to most of the senior/mature cat foods on the market, this one rocks it! It has premium ingredients and, even though it is somewhat costly, my cats eat less of it because they are getting protein instead of empty calories or cheap filler ingredients. Their waste does not smell as bad as that from eating cheap foods either. My cats are 3 and 18 years old, and they both love it.
The 18 year old particularly benefits from the easy to chew texture. While it is still crunchy enough to clean teeth, the kibble is just soft enough that you can crack it between your thumbnail and index finger. She maintains a healthy weight with this food compared to being too thin with conventional dry food. The only other food that I’ve found compares to this is Wellness Core Air Dried.
If the cost of this food is your only reason for not considering it, you’re far better to mix it half-and-half with another food than to skip it altogether.
