Purina doesn’t have a good reputation as being a quality pet food provider among those in the know anyways, so when you have a food that is basically advertised as their bargain food, you know you’re in for a world of trouble. No cute names or logos can save this one from what it really is: a terrible thing to feed your cat.
First off, the first 3 ingredients are worthless filler. The first THREE!! Isn’t filler supposed to just be….well….FILLER? You can’t put filler in the top ingredient spots! It doesn’t even fit the definition!
When they do get into meat products, it’s the infamous “meat and bone meal”, which none of us with weak stomachs would actually want to see made or admit is in our cat’s food.
I will give them credit for having “oceanfish meal”, which is a decent ingredient, but it’s too low on the ingredient list to be significant. It’s followed up with a by-product, which ruins any goodwill that we can have towards this food.
We also have 4 artificial colors (do you really think your cat cares about color??), and the yummy “animal digest” (a soup of blood, skin, and organs).
All in all, I think you get the idea…..do you even need to look at the score?
Where to buy?
