    I bought this because it was on sale and is the same flavor as the brand my cat was eating. The bag has a strange smell that I think carried over into the food. My cat would not eat it, and was eating a quarter of her normal amount of kibble. It was like putting her on a severe diet, which my vet says can be really bad for cats. After four days I went back to her normal brand and am going to donate what is left of this.

    My cat's fur looks & feels like Velvet. She is very healthy! I contend that this highest quality food (Nutro Cat & Kitten dry food) is the reason she is so healthy and happy. The expense is worth every penny. I believe it is an investment for her health as she gets older.

    The cats like Nutro Indoor. They also seem to have less solid stool that is not runny as happens with some other brands. Their breath also smells better than with some of the other brands.

    So I bought this cat food as a spur of the moment choice. I needed another bag of cat food, and I was trying to find something that I could buy at either my local grocery store or target vs PetSmart, which is where I was buying my food previously. So I was sitting in my local grocery store looking at all the cat food choices (which basically amounted to Purina and Iams and I refuse to feed my cat either of those) and I saw the Nutro Cat food section. I didn't have my phone, so I couldn't do any research on it, and ended up just buying it spur of the moment. It was about the same price as Science Diet (which was what I was feeding my cat before) but I wouldn't have to make a special trip just to get it. It also had normal shaped bits, which some food have the weird shapes and my cat chokes on those and it's not good.

    Anyways I get it home and my cat would not leave it alone. I had already fed her that day but she was rather insistent and annoying about it so I gave her half a scoop of it and she devoured it and she's devoured it every time I've fed her ever since. Since I've bought it I've had time to do research on it and I like what I see. It has good meats and good grains in it and I've seen very very few times where it seems like switching the cat to the food has brought on adverse side effects. My cat certainly hasn't had any. All in all I will continue to buy Nutro and recommend it to anyone who asks me about it.

    I tried the Nutro brand of canned cat food because my cats were getting sick of Natural Balance. After 2 cans each over 2 days they all had diarrhea and my 16 lb cat named Stinky developed pancreatitis. She is now at the vet's office getting IV meds. It is very bad and as of today they don't know for sure if she will be OK. I should have read more about your products because I see I'm not the only person who has experienced severe illness in their pets from your product. Obviously you could care less that you are selling a bowl full of death. I plan to review your awful food everywhere I can to prevent others from this issue as it is also obvious you do not care about your customers.
