Comments

I currently have 4 healthy cats. I have fed my cats science diet for 20 years, from kitten to cat,to old cat. One cat reached 18, the other is still going and enjoying life and the company of younger cats - all healthily fed on Science Diet. There is non of the mess or unpleasant smell of wet cat food. The cats love it. It works out good value if you buy larger packets. I buy the largest sack possible, usually cheapest that way (but watch the retailers prices as not always). Then split the contents to store in air tight plastic containers keeping it fresh. If you don't you let air in every time you feed the cats and it can be a bit stale at the end of the bag. Ideally adjust the product for the age of cat, and use the hairball control version when the cats are moulting.

We got our cat, Cha cha from the SPCA where she was fed Hills Optimal care. We kept her on it and she loves it (mind you she likes any food). She looks healthy although she is slightly overweight. She doesn't defaecate as much as our former cats did, who were on a diet of supermarket bought food.
