All 3 of my cats started having diarrhea which turned bloody. I switched their food from 9Lives and 5 days later none of them have diarrhea. My older cat was so sick I thought we were going to lose her. She's now back to normal running and playing as before I started feeding her 9Lives.
It is too rich for my cats. Within five minutes of eating they will vomit the food back up. Generally this is on the pates, but the hearty chicken cuts can bring the same results also. In the pates it appears the supper super makes them vomit the most.

I am absolutely disgusted with 9Lives. I buy this for my 3 cats, went to get them fresh food and there were clumps of mold in the bag. I have been feeding this to them for 2 weeks. They can get sick. Never again will I buy from 9Lives.
I normally feed my cat special kitty can cat food. I broke my ankle and had to go to Family Dollar for cat food.. I got 9 Lives can.. A few minutes after she ate it she was throwing up and then had diarrhea.. Don't buy this cat food.
I always buy 9 Lives Meaty Pate with Real Tuna and Shrimp. It is bought as somewhat of a special treat food for my 2 cats. They love love it. Or at least they did until this afternoon. I opened a can from a new delivery and it just wasn't the same at all!!!! I gave it to them, maybe I am wrong, and the 2 of them didn't even come near the bowls. It's still sitting there. I know know that this is not the same product. What can I do?? I am so mad. I bought a lot from Chewy. How can I return heavy amounts of food. I really need an answer. Maybe they mislabeled the cans. HELP.
My cat is a beautiful healthy indoor 9 year old who has never been sick! My cat was HEALTHY AND FINE in the years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds leading up to eating that poison of a can this company calls "food." I bought a can for my cat because the shop I was in didn't have his regular cans. I thought why not, he's had the 9Lives dry food plenty of times. When his 9pm dinner time (Wednesday.) approached I gave him quarter a can and let him be. 15 minutes later I came back to pick his bowl up and found him laying there with vomit surrounding him. His head was wobbly, his eyes were going back and forth. He got up and couldn't walk straight. He was stumbling and falling over himself like he was drunk.
Later on he was still dizzy and I laid him down so he could rest. The next morning (Thursday.) when I woke up at 8:30am he was still incredibly dizzy and his eyes could not keep still. He couldn't walk and was still throwing up. I called the vet and could take him the following day. The entire day he was dizzy and lethargic and eyes still going back and forth. Stumbling over himself and falling.
The next day (Friday.) I took him to his 12pm appointment. The vet said if it's poison he would like to give fluids to flush it out his system. The entire day onwards my cat was lethargic and resting. He didn't get up for 20 hours. As soon as hour 21 came, (Saturday morning.) he opened his eyes, peed out all the fluids all over himself and got up. Later on that night he licked one small bit of different can food. Still dizzy.
Fast forward to the next day, (Sunday. Now, as I write this.) he has finally drank water on his own, he ate some food and has clear eyes and is acting like himself, he does not have shaking eyes but he is still wobbly and falling over as he walks and stumbling over himself like he's drunk. He cannot walk in a straight line and he needs me to help guide him as he walks to the litter box and I have to hold his left side as he drinks so he doesn't fall over. We'll see how he goes as far as his balance is concerned. I wonder if he'll get over it or if it's permanent damage. Seriously, DO NOT buy this can food! It's straight poison!
Normally, I feed my cat Friskies, but I found Tuna & Egg by 9 Lives and thought my cat might like it. I gave it to her, and she started vomiting shortly after. She has started itching all over and has sores on her skin. She is just not herself. I decided to look on the Internet to see if other people had this experience with 9 Lives. My heart is broken. So many cats have been sick and suffered due to this food. I called my cats vet, but they can’t get her in until the end of the month. I’m so scared. I don’t want my cat to die. Something is wrong with this food and this should be stopped.
I'm am surprised to read that some folks cats will eat this because my cats over the years have all refused to touch it. They simply sniff and walk away. Something is definitely wrong with this company's cat food and seems they are out to kill rather than help cats with their food. Please avoid at all costs. Friskies is the best affordable option.
My cat is 13 years old and has never had any health issues. After eating food from this bag of Plus Care cat food, she’s lost weight due to not eating, been lethargic, and hiding from us. I noticed moths in the airtight container in which we keep the food. Even after getting rid of them all, when we would close the container and open it the next day, tons of moths would fly out. I’m confident they were in the food all along. I guess that’s why my cat won’t eat it and why, when she’s starving and finally does, it makes her sick. I’m an angered pet owner!!!
I currently have 3 cats, 20+, 18 and 13 years old. They have all been fed 9Lives dry & pate foods their whole lives. The only other dry food they will eat is Dad's. They choose to go hungry instead. They grudgingly will also eat Friskies pate, but only if 9Lives is not forthcoming. They believe in 9Lives, so I do also.
