I have three small kittens around 4-5 weeks old. Until a few days ago, they got their nourishment from their mother, supplemented by royal kanin reconstituted kitten milk which i hand fed them and have the scratches to prove it. Deciding it was time to start weaning them, i put down some moist kitten food and some dry food -the iams i’m reviewing. So far they’ve ignored the moist sachet food but attacked the iams dried. Moments after putting down a bowlful this morning all three had surrounded it and were tucking in. The only reason i’m giving four stars is the price. On quality and appeal it would have to be five.
As a treat or for health reasons then this is great, for the price i don’t think i would use this as an ‘all the time’ food. It is very good though and i would recommend it.
. But they don’t like most other dry food. Admittedly, iams is a lot mor expensive than the normal dry stuff, but mixed in with wet food makes it go a lot further and gives them some variety. You just have to figure out if your cats are going to be able to tell the difference, they might not be as picky as mine.
Desire my grownup cats liked iams as much. I have attempted our older cats on iams without having significantly success. They have been lifted on damp food pouches and it proved complicated to get them to go for the dry things. I assumed i may get on much better with our little cat who is just not old plenty of to have become addicted to moist food and it seems to be working ok so far. Only challenge is, mainly because our older cats are nonetheless on meat it truly is very tempting for their small good friend to assist them very clear their plates. I only would like it would do the job the other way round and she’d instruct them that dry food is the way to go. I am possessing to try feeding them independently at the instant so that she doesn’t get into the behavior of liking the damp food but i you should not know how thriving that would be in the extended operate. If i only had our little cat it would not be a difficulty as she likes the iams perfectly enough and i consider she’d be quite pleased to adhere with it but i suspect that as before long as she’s a small more mature and starts feeding with the major boys the smelly soaked food will gain out. It’s good stuff and i will check out to keep her at it but if she’s lead astray to the meat it is not going to be the fault of the iams.
I’ve recently acquired two kittens who have just finished their first 2. 55kg packet of iams dry cat food. I got them when they were eight weeks old and gave them iams from the start, with the first packet lasting three weeks and 1 day. I’ve been feeding them nothing but this and water and they are growing, have lots (and lots) of energy, and no problems with their digestion (i know some cat owners who find iams too rich). The food comes in the form of small biscuits and is chicken flavour (yum). An added bonus is that the piece of plastic that i cut off when opening the packet provides infinite entertainment; by far and away it is the kittens’ favourite toy (the box the packets were delivered in comes a close second). My only complaint is that i would have liked the packet to be resealable in some way.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Wish my adult cats loved Iams as much
- Both kitten and junior like it
- So far the one my kitty likes best
As a cat breeder i cannot recommend this excellent food enough. Not only is it lovely little kibbles for baby mouths, but is an excellent addition to the diet of pregnant and nursing mothers. I also feed it to my girls to build them up after their babies are past nursing and in addition i feed it to the studs as i felt that ‘doing what comes naturally’ to them takes an awful lot out of them. Overall i found that the cats preferred kitten iams to any other brand of dry cat food. Just a pity that the size of bags is restricted and is not available in the larger sizes available in adult varieties.
I’ve got two kittens (now 12 weeks old) one boy and one girl; both of them are loving this product. We’ve used a cheap supermarket alternative (aldi) and pro plan cat food, each greeted with disdain and unhappiness. This product is getting enjoyed by both of them. The feeding guide is clear and the product doesn’t have an overwhelming smell. Highly successful and i’m a converted owner.
