The cats like it well enough. My bengal and ragdoll turn their noses up at many varieties of cat food, but they seem like this one ok. I normally feed them royal canin indoor and they clean their bowl. With iams, there are still a few slivers and crumbs remaining, but they do eat most of it. They’re in good health and the litterbox stinks slightly worse than when they’re fed with the canin. Then again, it always stinks. This is a decent value cat food and i’d recommend it for any cat without a specific dietary need.
My cats absolutely love this cat food, which is the most important thing. The added bonus is that it is good for them and provides them with all the nutritional elements that they need without having to provide wet food. It helps to promote:healthy digestion: tailored fibre blend, including prebiotics and beet pulp to help support your cat’s ability to absorb nutrientsstrong immune system: enriched with antioxidants to help support a strong immune systemstrong muscles: formulated with high quality protein to help your cat maintain strong muscleshealthy teeth: crunchy kibbles scrub your cat’s teeth with every bite, helping to reduce plaque build-up that can lead to bad breathhealthy skin and shiny coat: formulated with omega-6 and omega-3 for healthy skin and shiny coathealthy heart: 7 essential nutrients for a healthy hearthealthy eyes: natural source of taurine for healthy eyesa recommended buy for those who like happy cats :).
I’ve recently changed my cat food from whiskas to iams and so far i’ve very happy with the results. My cat is just over 1 year old and made the transition over to the iams very well – i followed the packaging’s recomendation to mix ‘old brand’ with ‘new’ over 3 days and this worked well. So far my cat has eaten all the food given to her (full iams portions) and has not turned her nose up at it once, as some cats tend to do while changing brands. I have been feeding her this food for about a week and a half and already her coat seems a lot more shiney, there’s no bad breath and, interestingly, her ‘buisness’ is a lot less smelly in the litter tray too. My cat is also a lot more ‘excietable’ in anticipation of her food, so i’m assuming that it prefers the taste too – in my case the ‘lamb & chicken’ option. The packaging also recommended feeding 1 portion in ‘halves’ over the day (morning and evening)and using this method each 3kg bag has enough for 46 portions (or 92 halves)which is more than a month’s supply of food, making it good value too. All in all i’m very happy with the iams and definatley will be buying more in future. Here are the specifications for the Iams Dry Cat Food Adult Lamb:
- Prebiotics and beet pulp for healthy digestion
- Antioxidants to support a strong immune system
- 7 Essential nutrients for a healthy heart
- No added artificial colours, flavours or preservatives
- Available in 3 kg
As soon as they hear it open they run towards it. I’m around some picky cats but they have no issues with these. . How much more do you want me to elaborate?. I haven’t mastered their language to convey much more.
I tried this on five cats aged between 18 months and 12 years old. All of them showed immediate interest as soon as the bag was opened, and most of them were trying to eat it before i had even finished putting it in the bowl. Obviously the flavour and odour were a big hit. It seemed to keep them satisfied for quite a long time too, they didn’t even want treats for several hours. It kept fresh very well, no unpleasant stale odour. The hairball chicken had had a bit of an unpleasant side effect on the oldest cat (diarrhoea) so i watched him with some anxiety, but he showed no such reaction to this; everything seemed absolutely normal, except his breath seemed a little sweeter. He is also prone to plaque, and i believe after eating this some of the plaque had come off, but i can’t be sure. Still, i’d call it a resounding success; the cats love it, it keeps fresh and fills them up, and no tummy trouble at all.
Reviews from purchasers :
- 2 out of (my) 3 cats prefer Iams – lamb flavour
- My moggie loves it
- No mess, none left
Iams, for all discening cats. Both my cats were overjoyed to receive this, i have used iams for several years already but have mixed it with other foods. This is the first time i have moved both cats onto an exclusively iams diet. As other reviewers have mentioned, the bags themselves are fairly flimsy and the contents need decanting into another container. This is not a hardship but it would be good if the bags were re-sealable. Iams is known to be a good quality cat food containing everything a cat needs to remain healthy, a complete food, you don’t need to give any extras. Both my cats love it and it continues to be a favourite here. One thing i particularly liked is the multipack option which i do not see in the shops, in addition it’s delivered and i don’t need to cart it home. Looking at the price is it competitive to buying three separate packs, possibly slightly cheaper which is always a bonus.
Great grub for finickity felines. This is a huge supply of the lamb-flavour food, around enough to keep one cat going for four months. But it’s useful to find the lamb flavour, because normally shops tend only to stock chicken varieties. My moggies have been eating dried cat foods like iams for nearly 15 years, and they thrive on them. It’s a complete diet in itself, so you don’t need to feed them ‘wet’ cat food as well — although mine do appreciate a bit of variety and the odd sachet of something juicy, too. You don’t need to feed cats very much iams — portion sizes are quite small — and it’s easy to over-feed, so you have to be a bit careful that you don’t end up with fat cats. The `weight control’ varieties are useful but my felines aren’t quite so keen on their flavour. Iams pellets are ideal for cats who live indoors and use litter trays; there’s less to clean up and it’s much less smelly/offensive. You must ensure that your cats have plenty of water available. It’s also worth bearing in mind that some of the more specialised varieties (weight control, anti-furball, etc) can get quite expensive.
