Iams Dry Cat Food Senior and Mature Chicken, Cats are fickle creatures

Excellent product but, unusually, amazon’s price is through the roof. We have three cats all of whom are about 1 years old. They love iams and thrive on it so a 5 star review. But, and unusually, this is an incredibly expensive way of buying it. The identical product in most supermarkets retails at around £14-£16 a bag as standard, and is ofthen discounted or on buy two get one free. I have not idea why amazon is so expensive.

Prior to this our car normally had sachets with jelly and biscuits. First of all i tried to give the cat just iams adult ocean fish – she ate it very reluctantly whining & whining for her normal sachets. Not being able to stand the pestering any more , i give her iams in the morning & half a sachet in the evening and she seems happy with this – she is eating all the iams up over the course of the morning – but not with any gusto. Now tried the senior & mature chicken – she seems to like this slightly better but doubt she will ever only eat dry food. Will continue with this routine now – there is a lot to eat upit was very good having the 3 large bags delivered in one go – much easier than lugging it back form the vets or the supermarket – you do need another large tub or two to put the biscuits in – the bags do not seal up so well but nor do any of the others.

Iams Dry Cat Food Senior and Mature Chicken, 2.55 kg – Pack of 3

  • Helps maintain Strong muscle
  • Enriched with antioxidents to help support a strong immune system
  • 7 essential nutrients for a healthy heart
  • Contains Omega 6 and 3 for healthy skin and coat
  • Natural source of Taurine for Healthy Eyes

I have been giving my cats iams dry cat food adult light chicken 2. 55 kg (pack of 3), and they love it. Obviously they like the taste, but also the smaller size pieces and its not too hard to bite. As they are getting older, i thought i would try them with the senior and mature rather than just adult. The composition is supposed to benefit the more mature/senior cat, they love it just as good, therefore both cat and owner are happy.

A favourite for cat and stray (and mice). Our cat is a senior (a rescue cat, about 10 years old) and loves this stuff – if anything this is his favourite flavour yet. He has a bowl topped up a couple of times a day of this, and one wet pouch a day and he seems happy. He does occasionally vomit from iams (i think due to eating too much) but we haven’t seen it with this flavour yet. We’ve also managed to acquire a stray over recent weeks so whenever the patio door is open the stray is in the kitchen eating the iams as well. Update: be careful storing these in a garage or loft. We have found in both garage and loft that mice are able to eat through the packaging at the bottom and help themselves to the food. The first we knew about it was noticing a mass of mouse poo. The orange package (adult chicken) seems to be the most appealing to the little critters.

Not as tasty as other brands. Not as tasty as other brands according to my cat, who generally votes with her feet and tongue, i. She just cries until i give her something else. Now, i told her about the antioxidents for her immune system. I told her about the seven essential nutrients for a healthy heart (and have you ever tried to explain the concept of mathematics to a cat?). I told her about the omega 6 and 3 for her healthy skin and coat (now matter how saggy it is) and i told her about the taurine for her eyes. ‘meow,’ she said, which i took to mean ‘i hope you starve and are eaten by mice (but be back by teatime).

Iams Dry Cat Food Senior and Mature Chicken, 2.55 kg – Pack of 3 : The cats love this food, it’s easy to keep a bowl of this out without it smelling your entire house out. This is for older cats and it seems to keep mine happy.

  1. Our cats have thrived on this food. Iams does offer a complete diet (with water), but we do ring the changes with meaty cat food too. The cats also supplement iams with whatever they can catch or snaffle from the kitchen but i am hoping that iams will have miraculous properties and at least stop their kitchen thefts. Coats are glossy, meows are clear and plates are clean.

    1. Does what it says on the pack. We have one mature cat and two others who are younger;they all enjoy this dry cat food and wolf it down,though to be honest there is not much they don’t wolf down. This flavour is chicken,(i have often wondered what would happen if cat food came in flavours that cats really enjoyed,like rat,bird,spider,fly and bit of rubbish dragged from binbag;would their popularity decrease in relation to their availability?)anyway,the cats really like it and are very healthy;it is not the cheapest out there but getting this 3 pack from amazon is probably the best way to do it.

    1. So, i heard them talking about feeding me some new stuff. They just don’t get it that i like that juicy wet sloppy stuff that comes in the little pouches. Of course, i have a way to pay them back. Every time they buy a packet or tin of something new, ‘just to see if he likes it’, i wolf it down like i haven’t seen food in years. Then they dash out and buy tons of the stuff, and then i refuse to eat a bite of it. They say, ‘well, he’ll just have to eat it, because he’s getting nothing else’i look pained. I look sick, and starved, and neglected.

    They love it – and they are fussy eaters – but it isn’t cheap. I must admit that i am pretty much sold on iams cat food now (well, they are). I have tried a couple of different varieties, and both my cats – orientals with incredibly fussy eating habits – have been eating them happily for 6 weeks now, with no sign of getting bored. Previously, they would only eat ‘go-cat’, and turned their noses up at anything else, including eukanuba which was recommended to us by our vet and which is very expensive stuff. They won’t even eat fresh steak, chicken or fish. They do like crisps and poppadoms though?the only downside to iams is the price, of course, and i think that what i will do when these packs run out is to mix my iams with ‘go-cat’, half and half, so that they get what they enjoy, but a a price that i can actually afford.

    Honey the 15 year old cat seems indifferent to this cat food. Eventually she will start eating it; however on numerous occasions she is meowing to be fed only for me to find a bowl full of iams that have been untouched. The fact that she still eats her evening meat dish leads me to think that she is not a big fan of iams. I tried her on a different flavour and she does seem to eat them now. I think the trick is to have more than one flavour as iams are all the same with no different textures or colours and even with a cats limited colour range must look really boring. She seems to have no preference for either of the flavours i have. I have not performed any tests to see if she is healthierºi think 3 stars seems about right.

    We have a 14-year-old siamese called hamble and she loves this. We can leave it in her bowl all day and she’ll graze on it – not eating too much. It doesn’t have a noticeably off-putting odour and it keeps well.

    Premium quality dry cat food – although sadly our cats haven’t really taken to this particular flavour. Our two cats are pretty fussy when it comes to cat food. And because of recurring cystitis in our ten-year-old cat, since about a year or so ago, we’ve had to go with purely dry cat food. Previously we’ve gone with ‘burns ocean cat food’. However, recently we’ve been trying our two cats out on a few different varieties of this iams dry cat food. And on the whole we’ve been pretty pleased with how they’ve taken to it (the senior and mature ocean fish one in particular). It has also kept our older cat’s cystitis problems in check, which is our main concern when choosing the cat food. However, our ten-year-old hasn’t really taken to this particular flavour. I don’t know if it’s just her personal preference for ‘fishy’ food. However, she doesn’t really go for this flavour like she does with other ones.

    We got our kitten from the rspca, she’d been found in a very poor condition and had been at the rspca several months, during that time she’d been fed on a mix of dry and wet cat-food, basically whatever was donated. When we got her home we gave her iams dry cat food and a wet cat-food in a pouch to see which she preferred, she chose the iams, she wouldn’t eat the pouch food and we ended up donating it. Dry cat-food is far more convenient, there is little smell and little waste, she has a bowl of iams and a bowl of water; she only eats what she wants so it is easy to keep the dish topped up. We experimented with other dry cat food but cats are notoriously fussy and she wouldn’t eat it. Strangely there is no flavour preference as long as it is iams and we can even mix flavours in the dish. We have a very healthy cat, now over eight years old, very lively and still plays like a kitten.

    I must admit it’s a little difficult to write a review of cat food, as i don’t eat the stuff myself and can’t get any sense out of the cat when i ask her for her views of it. However, i can say that my 7 year old cat eats the chicken flavour ‘senior and mature’ iams and doesn’t leave any scraps, so i assume she likes it. This product comprises 3 x 3kg bags, which it fairly bulky and heavy. It is worth thinking about this before ordering, to make sure you have somewhere to store the bags until they are used (somewhere that the cats can’t get to). You also need to be confident that your cat will like them and will continue to like them until all 9kg have been eaten. Maybe not a good idea if your cat is fussy about food. Otherwise, getting several weeks/months supply of dry food delivered to your door is a convenient way to buy.

    1. I’d never tried my cat on dry food, so it was a bit of a gamble getting him this. Looked at the food again and did the closest thing a cat can to a weary sigh. He’s very happy with this, and eats it. It does go stale in the bowl fairly quickly though, so don’t expect to be able to leave him a huge pile in a bowl to work through – you will need to feed him ‘fresh’ from a fairly sealed pack.

    1. Iams senior and mature chicken dry cat food 2. 55kg (pack of 3). Well both of our cats liked the iams however there is a snowballs chance in hell that i would manage to convince them to go onto this solely and give up their wet food as both like their meat far too much. They both woofed down the iams biscuits though and i am therefore going to continue to feed the iams alongside their normal wet food until the packs run out. So a paws up in our house although not enough to give up the wet food as i honestly think if i took it away they would leave home and find another home which fed them meat.A couple of negatives for me on the iams in that like other reviewers have said the bag isn’t resealable and also the cost. On the resealing issue we have just used a couple of wooden line pegs to seal the bag and that has worked perfectly well to be honest with the top of the bag folded over. On the price i think it would have to be a bit cheaper for me to consider buying it in the future as compared to my local well known supermarket the price just isn’t competitive enough. I can buy the same weight in a well known cat food brand that begins with w for £16 less. Yes i fully understand that the iams is better nutritionally (although marginally from comparing the nutrition values) but unless the price was more competitive we just couldn’t consider switching in our home. A really good cat food though and i would definitely switch if possible in the future.

    One again iams come up trumpsthe food is obviously delicious as evidenced by the constant empty bowls. They are big bags and although my initial concerns hat my fussy cat would tire of the same flavour this wasn’t the case at all as he keeps coming back for more.

    Cat number one, roger, is a fussy eater but was perfectly happy to eat this cat food. Cat number two, oscar, loved it, but as he devours everything that is put in front of him perhaps his opinion is less crucial. The owners of roger and oscar – both felines being of mature years – were unanimous in that this is good value for money and has an additional good point in that it does not smell if left in the bowl.

      1. I got this for my elderly cat (>13 yrs old) – we give her some biscuits at lunchtime. The first time she didn’t eat them at first, but came back later and eat them all. Since then she seems to like them fine. I guess, as an old cat, she is used to her normal routine and biscuit types. So i trust that iams have got the nutrition side of things right, and the cat likes them – so happy with them. I would prefer to have a re-sealable packet – as we have for the other biscuits that we use (hills prescription diet – obtained from our vet).
