The cats seem to enjoy this well enough, and the odour is inoffensive. I like that the pouches are small, as the food should theoretically stay fresh during the amount of time it takes them to polish off a pouch. The ingredients list is not that detailed, and the colour looks a bit garish to me, in comparison to the cats’ usual dry foods (which are all a bland brown colour). The ingredients list refers to colour additives, and these might be naturally derived, but i honestly can’t see the purpose of them. Cats are primarily carnivorous, and don’t use colour in the same way that humans do to assess food quality. For the same reason, i really don’t see the point of veg in catfood. My vet always said that the ideal food for cats is pure lean protein – anything else presents an unnecessary challenge to their endocrine systems. Though there might be a market for ‘pure grass so i can get sick on your carpet’. Anyway: four stars ‘cos the cats eat it (mine are fussy), minus a star (from five) for the unnecessary colouring and veg.
George seems to be really happy with this ‘go-cat crunchy and tender’ with the variety of biscuits both crunchy and tender he does tend to nuzzle through them picking out his favourites but he doesn’t leave any behind. We leave dry food out for him all day and he tends to graze between sleeps. It’s encouraging to read about the nutritional values on the side of the packet, from experience keeping a cats teeth healthy is really important and dry food is much better for this, we have managed to get george down to one pouch of wet food a day and they dry food makes up the rest of his diet. These biscuits come in manageable sized bags, easy to handle and poor from and the zip seal on the top of the bag keeps food fresh and odours locked away. The 5 bags come in an outer box that is ideal for storage. I would buy these biscuits again, they are hit with george and the price point seems fair.
The cat seemed to like it and it contains nutrients he needs although i do find go-cat rather expensive generally and not sure it is really any better than other cheaper options on the market. Here are the specifications for the Go-Cat Dry Cat Food Crunchy Tender Chicken/Turkey/Vegetables:
- 100% complete nutrition
- Healthy teeth and gums
- Muscle tone and strong bones
- Crunchy kibbles to help maintain healthy teeth and gums
- help maintain muscle tone and strong bones
Our cats usually eat ‘oral care’ dry goods but we do vary it a bit as we feel it can get a bit boring for them. This ticks a lot of boxes with regards to hypoallergenic, kidney care, etc. The test is generally, will they eat it?. But only when there was no alternative food down. Our junior cats now approaching a year old tended to eat it as opposed to the royal canin and hills oral care we think because the kibble size was smaller and they didn’t have to crunch a large nut. The adult cats all continued with the royal canin when they had a choice. The kibble will soften with warm water if you’ve a toothless cat or one with dodgy teeth.
My cat loves this dry food mix. Previously she was a whiskers eater, but the first packet of this purina has been eaten in record time. The biscuits have lots of variation in shape and colour and are full of meat, rice and vegetables for a balanced diet.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Good Value – kitties love it!
- The cats LOVE it and we don’t mind the smell. BUT, the nutritional value isn’t as great as Iams, their regular food.
- A cheap food which my cat does like and swallowed her first dish full
My cat loves this dry cat food.
Tiny kibble for tiny mouths and big lollopy ones. Lots of different shapes and colours and little bits that may or may not be dried meat. The dogs thing it’s the best thing since wet food and the cat likes it so much she gobbles all she can. She still prefers _redacted_ brand, though.
