      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good nutritious kitty food.

      I have never owned a cat before so I have no idea what is good or bad for our little Simba, but through trial and error, we try to give him the best we can afford and more importantly, what he enjoys the most. When we first got him, he was used to eating Asda's Kitty food and he seemed to like it, both dry and wet food. He didn't have a preference really but then went off it for some reason. We have had him about 5 months now and recently switched his dry food to Go Cat Complete- For indoor cats. I am aware that some people are against keeping a cat indoors but he has known no different and he's happy. We don't let him out mainly because we live on the high street in our town and so many have gone missing or been killed due to the high traffic volume around us. We bought the Go Cat from our local Sainsbury's, we first tried him on a small box which cost £1.09 for 375g, we felt that we should try him on a small box first to make sure he liked it else we would have wasted it. The box is easy to find in any supermarket due to its bright yellow cardboard packaging. It has an image of a ginger cat on the front -Just like our Simba, and then says 'GO CAT COMPLETE' in big red letters. Underneath that it says what type of go cat it is, and in this instant its their 'indoor cat' range, and that is green so that all the writing isn't the same as that can sometimes get confusing. It says the flavour which can be one of two; either Chicken with vegetables or Salmon with Garden greens. We opted for the latter as he has meaty wet food so wanted him to have something fishy. Next to the chosen flavour it says that it is specially formulated for indoor cats which is what enticed us to buy the product in the first place. Go Cat claim that this special formula will provide prevention against hairball control, litter odour and also weight control. For the short time we have been using this, maybe about 3 weeks max, he hasn't had any hairballs, but then again I don't think he even has yet. His kitty litter tray has seemed a bit less smelly and his weight has stayed the same. This may change overtime however it doesn't state on the box how long these changes take to notice. On the reverse of the box it has a little bit more information on what it helps to prevent i.e it contains chicory which is known to prevent litter odours and that it apparently has a great taste, I will leave that decision up to Simba thank you! So what did Simba think? We got home just in time for his evening feed and opened the box, this was easy to do as it has a flap on the side that you just pull and it can be easily opened and closed without any problems. We then put some into his bowl and he ran straight over to it. He sniffed it for a couple of seconds and then delved in. He seemed to enjoy it and we were happy due to the fact he had gone off his food for a little bit. he was smacking his little lips together when he had finished so it seemed to be a success! We have kept him on it now for 3 weeks and he still seems to be enjoying it, therefore we shall continue to buy it till he is fed up of it. Once he had finished the small box of this we did go out and get him a larger box which is 950g and cost £2 which I thought was very reasonable. Although there have been no issues with him being on the indoor Go Cat, I am a little disappointed that there are only two flavours to choose from, I can't help but think he may get bored of alternating between the two. Go Cat is available in all supermarkets that stock cat food and even my local polish shops sell it, so it should be very easy to find.

        Reasonably priced cat food formulated for indoor cats which my kitty loves

        My cat came to me via a local rehoming centre which informed me she was an indoor only cat, I have offered the opportunity for her to head outside but she seems to prefer the security of four walls. As such I was attracted to the GoCat complete for indoor cats to make sure she wasn't missing out on anything she needed to be healthy.  I feed this to my cat in addition to pouches of wet cat food and she nibbles on it throughout the day.   It is a dry catfood product  which comes in a couple different flavours and a number of different size boxes/bags. I find the cardboard box easy to store and the packaging is fully recyclable which is always good.   It promises hairball control, litter odour control and weight control for indoor cats. I have found that on the whole it lives up to these promises. My cat does not really suffer from hairballs (although I don't know if this is just a result of the product) and I have found that her litter is less smelly when she eats this. Although it is by no means smell free!  In terms of weight control,  I find it hard to comment as I tend to just pour some into her dish as needed rather than measure it out to the recommended guidelines which are clearly and helpfully marked on the box. That said my cat is not over weight and tends to just nibble of the dry food when hungry. I like the product itself as it doesn't really have a strong smell and can easily be poured from an opening in on the side of the box. Although somethimes it pours a little too quickly, so would recommend caution when dishing out a newly opened box. My cat loves this product and will not eat any other brand of dry catfood. It is not as cheap as the non-premium brands but I have found it is often on offer in the supermarkets so a good buy can usually be found.  The bigger bags in particular are usually the best valuable, however I tend to stick with the 950g box as I worry my small cat won't get to the bottom of anything bigger before it goes stale.

        A decent indoor cat food that helps keeps your kitties healthy.

        We live in an area just on the cusp of the countryside, in a tiny village (though sadly slightly expanded by unsympathetic building of an ugly estate) with one pub and one post office. Despite this we have lost several cats to speeding drivers over the years. One or two is a sad accident several feels like victimisation (even though I'm sure it's not). So when we took in a little stray that turned out to be 'with kitten' we decided that this bunch were going to be indoor cats. We had two old ladies at the time who had retired to the radiator and only went out into the garden on very sunny days so it wasn't too much trouble to instigate a 'don't open the bloody doors' policy at home. We do feed some wet food particularly for mammy cat (her kittens are 4 years old now, but we still call her the matriarch) who has a dicky urinary tract, which is fine as long as we stick primarily to cans, pouches and real meat. The 'kittens' however are on primarily dry food as we are on a tight budget they we were only buying the more expensive brands occasionally. However my big boy Jed has been looking rather sorry for himself since he has his manhood tampered with (I'm not surprised poor boy) and has been putting weight on steadily despite being the most active and most picky eater of the brood. So we thought it was time to move to a brand which took into account both their indoor lifestyle and Jed's increasing girth. Go-Cat complete for Indoor cats seemed to address several of our issues. This dry food comes in only two flavours that I am aware of (I have double checked on their own website), Salmon and Chicken, both with added garden greens. We mostly buy the chicken as it's the one that is almost always in stock in our local Tesco, the Salmon variety seems a little harder to come by there. My review is of the Chicken one, but they do love the Salmon one too when we can get it. The product as suggested by the name is specifically formulated for indoor cats, and the box states that it contains chicory as part of the garden greens, which apparently makes their poo less smelly. Anything that does that for cats that toilet almost exclusively indoors is not something to be sniffed at. There are 'fibres' which are supposed to aid with digestion and help prevent hairballs, and the biggy for us is the "balance of protein and calories [is] adjusted to avoid unwanted weight gain" (quote from the box). It also claims for itself that it does of course have a great taste, and high protein content. Did the kitty food live up to its claims? Mostly yes. My cats do indeed agree that this has a great taste; it is without a doubt their favourite dry cat food thus far and they eat every scrap with relish. Whether their doings are less smelly is debateable, but they are certainly bigger. I'm presuming that is from the extra roughage the garden greens provide, and is presumably shows a better movement of food through their digestive tracts. There are days when I think that the litter trays have less of a green haze above them after use, and days when I think dear God what have you eaten? Overall I would say there is some minor reduction in pong. The moggies have never been very hairbally, their illustrious elder stateswomen predecessors were always hacking something up, but this lot seem to be fairly minimal in this department, though like all cats they do need to dispose of ingested fur from time to time. I haven't really noticed any difference in the frequency or 'type' of hairball that appears from time to time, usually judiciously placed for the best chance of one of their human servants stepping on it before they see it. My two girl kitties are quite svelte so I was a bit worried that this would be a little too low in calories for them, however as Minette only gets this occasionally there seems to be no adverse effects there for her, her tiny daughter doesn't seem to have lost any weight and is just as perky as always, if not more so. Barfwr (from Welsh and kind of means 'beardy') the baby of the bunch, a chunky but not overweight male loves dry food and these are no exception, he will brook no theft of them by the dogs and protects them jealously. He remains a nice cuddly teddy bear, but my hunky love dumpling Jed is showing the biggest changes, he's not suddenly back to the slinky skinny lotharios he was before his op but he has definitely slimmed down a little bit, and is looking generally perkier. When he goes out into the little ad hoc run we have for them he can climb the little tree we have in there, and use the toys much more easily than he could before. He is however still quite rotund and I think a visit to the vet may be in order, I suspect hormone issues after his deballing, or an underperforming thyroid; but this food has made a difference to him. This is pricier than the budget brands that were our main dry cat food until recently eg Tesco's Claude at 99p for 1kg but not as expensive as specialist diet foods. The 2kg bag is £3 at Tesco right now but only until 14th Feb (2012) it's normally £4.79, smaller boxes eg 950g at £2.49 are rotten value and I try not to buy them. As the moggies are definitely showing signs of being a little more content with just a little more sparkle I will try and continue to buy this but at the full price it's unlikely I will use this exclusively as their dry food component, but I will buy it when on offer or if I can find it more cheaply elsewhere.

          recommended

          My cat is quite fussy when it comes to food and drink; however she seems too really like GO-CAT indoors dry food, she doesn't particularly like the salmon one but she really enjoys the chicken and vegetable. The little pellets of food are nice and small so they are easy for her to eat as she a very small cat and they are not very powdery which is good because some other foods when you pour them it like dust is coming of them. We feed her three-four times a day but she gets feed quite big potions. The food is really good for them and is supposed to help keep them active and I believe it is also meant to be good for their bones and joints. It also helps with their digestion. I think it is one of the better indoor foods however they don't have as many flavour choices in the indoor range. I have only managed to find the salmon and the chicken ones; this could just be the shop I buy it from though. The only downside to this food, is indoor food is supposed to help make it smell less when your cat goes to the toilet however I really haven't notice any difference. I know they have a rage of food for kittens, adults and seniors, so there is one for every stage of your cats life, however this doesn't seem to apply to the indoor food which is in its own range. The price I think is pretty good at about £2.80 for a 950gr box, I am sure it works out cheeper if you buy the big bags though. I have to admit one of the reasons I started buying it was because of the TV advert, me and my brother found it quite funny that they advertise this cat being a really impressive free runner that could jump from building to building and thought we give it a go, not unsurprisingly our cat still prefers sleeping than trying to do any sort of movement. It comes in nice box, which is probably slightly smaller than your average cereal box. It is predominately yellow so it sticks out on the shelves and is easy to locate. On the front is a picture of ginger cat and I think it is the same cat they use in their TV advert. The flavour of the food is always nice and clearly displayed on the front of the box. It pours from the side and there is a little tab you tear to open it. The box is always really full which is good but it does mean that when you are pouring it the first couple of times you can pour too much and food goes everywhere because the box is so full. Generally I think this is one of the better dry foods for cats and will keep buying it as my cat seems really happy with it too. This review is also on ciao.

            Specific food for indoor cats

            I am not very much of a people person, I love animals and my pets are hugely important to me. Recently my old family cat, Bob, has come to live with me after my dad started making plans to move out of town. Things were going well until Bob decided to have an "adventure" and I didn't see him for 10 weeks, when he was returned to me in a dreadfully sorry looking state. Since then I have kept him inside and been nursing him back to full health. Bob is the grand old age of 15 and a half years, which is pretty good going for a cat! He is normally very active and playful, and I try my best to ensure that he stays in good health. I spotted this Go-Cat Complete for Indoor Cats by chance as I didn't even realise that this type of food was available. I usually feed Bob special senior cat food which is designed for mature & senior cats aged 8 and above, but seeing as I've been keeping him indoors after his return I thought a specific indoor cat food would be great to keep him healthy. I bought this cat food from Tesco where it is available in three different sizes, where 375g costs £1.18, 950g costs £2.68, and 2kg costs £5.69. Product description: "Cats who spend most of their time indoors get lots of love and attention but when it comes to their food they need extra care. Indoor cats don't interact as much with nature, so they miss our on some of the benefits from the outdoors plus they tend to groom themselves more, increasing the likelihood of hairballs. Litter odour can also be a problem with living with an indoor cat. That is why our nutritionists have developed Go Cat For Indoor Cats specially formulated to satisfy their nutritional needs. 100% complete and balanced, Go Cat For Indoor Cats directly replaces some of what your cat misses from the outdoors, including garden Greens that cats love to chew on. Your cat just knows it tastes great, but you know you're giving him all the protein, vitamins and minerals he needs to help keep him happy and full of vitality." My Bob cat is still very active at over 15 years old and is very young in some aspects of his behaviour. He enjoys play time as well as lots of running and jumping about. To keep his energy levels topped up as well as maintaining a healthy body, I make sure to feed him special senior food, and supplement his daily diet with these cat biscuits. Go-Cat Complete for Indoor Cats comes in a chicken flavour with added vegetables and garden greens. The food comes in a cardboard box and is a complete dry food. There is a pop out slot on the side of the box that allows you to pour the food out into a food bowl. This is easy to use and allows me to control how much food I want to dispense. The food itself takes the form of small dry biscuits that have a flat, circular disc shape. There are brown, orange and green coloured biscuits that are made up of different ingredients. They are small and crunchy and Bob is able to eat them easily without having to struggle with large chunks, as they are a nice manageable size. Because they are a dry food I like to put out his meaty cat food in the morning for his breakfast meal before I go to work, and will then leave him with a good amount of these biscuits to graze on throughout the day, without having to worry about them going bad or drying out like a meat based food would. The recommended servings amounts per day are as follows: 3kg cat = 55g 4kg cat = 75g 5kg cat = 90g Obviously this will vary depending on if you are varying their diet by providing other foods as well. I like to give my cat a balanced diet and provide meat based food as well, so I give less of these Indoor Cat biscuits and this helps the box to last for longer. As my cat gets older I am obviously becoming more concerned about his health and hope to help keep him fit and active for as long as possible. This Go-Cat Complete food is specifically formulated for cats that spend a lot of time indoors, and claims to provide these specific healthcare benefits: + With fibres to aid digestion and help reduce hairballs indoor cats may develop through frequent grooming + Contains chicory to help reduce stool odour and litter box smell + Added garden greens and rich in meat protein for a great taste your indoor cat with love + A balance of protein and calories to help avoid unwanted weight gain, as Indoor cats may be less active Bob is in incredibly good health for his age, and other than having a slightly dull coat he appears in tip top condition. He is slowing down in some ways, such as not being able to jump up and down the stairs quite as quickly as he used to, and spending more time sleeping after short bursts of activity. However, he is still pretty much the same as he always has been and manages to get up to all sorts of mischief! I can tell that Bob enjoys eating these cat biscuits as he scoffs them down straight away and seriously begs all the time for more - he can't get enough! He can be quite fussy about what biscuits he will or won't eat, so I was glad to see that he enjoyed these as they offer important health benefits. I am happy with this Go-Cat Complete for Indoor Cats food as it suits my cat's needs and I can see that he is very happy eating it. I would happily continue buying this pet food, and recommend it to other pet owners that have biscuit-loving cats. I think it's great to have a specific food for indoor cats, and it's a great price too.

              My Layla recommends them

              Recently I received a coupon for a free 375g box of Go Cat Complete crunchies for Indoor Cats, now my youngest cat Layla is far from and indoor cat, whilst she loves her home comforts and cuddling up in bed with me and my fiancé she also loves being outside climbing the tree in our garden and generally pottering about. However I decided to use the coupon and get a box of the crunchies and try them on her to see if she liked them, after all if she hated them I hadn't actually lost anything. Packaging The crunchies come in the traditional bright yellow box that most Go Cat crunchies come in, there is a picture of a ginger cat sitting in front of a window right at the top of this with the word "Purina" written in white writing within a black rectangle, this is very small and does not really stand out at all on the box, however Go Cat is actually part of the Purina range but are more commonly know as Go Cat. The words "Go Cat Complete" is written in large red letters right in the middle of the box, this really stands out against the yellow background meaning you cannot fail to see what brand of crunchies are inside the box. Just underneath this the box states that these particular crunchies are for "Indoor cats" this is written in orange writing, again standing out against the background. The flavour of the crucnhies is written in white letters at the bottom of the box within an orange rectangle, in this case the crunchies were "Chicken with added vegetable" flavour, a pretty standard flavour for cat crunchies. Right at the bottom of the box in very small green lettering is a sentence about the crunchies and symbols stating s few facts about the crunchies themselves, these crunchies are "specially formulated for cats that spend a lot of time indoors", they also claim to be good for "hairball control, litter odour control and high in meat protein" all of these are demonstrated with small symbols. Right across the top of the box in large green writing it says "10% less cardboard across all packs" this is written across a cardboard coloured area of the box with a picture of a cat paw next to it to give the effect that the cat has tore the box, this again is standard across all Go Cat crunchies and is good for recycling etc. The whole box is covered in various snippets of information, on the 2 sides of the box you will find the ingredients, various facts about the products, which are repeats of what is on the front of the box and a daily feeding guide, again some of this information is demonstrated by both writing and symbols. The back of the box is the same bright yellow colour and again covered in different facts about the product including a brief description of why Go Cat are using 10% less packaging. There are also various pictures of healthy lively looking ginger cats on the back of the box as well. What are Go Cat crunchies for Indoor Cats? These particular crunchies are as the title suggests designed for cats who spend most of or all of their time indoors, the information on the back of the box states that cats who do not go outside can sometimes miss out on some of the benefits of going outside including what Go Cat call chewing on garden greens, so these crunchies help to satisfy their nutritional needs and actually include the garden greens that cats love to chew, I often find Layla outside chewing various things growing in the garden, most of the time things she shouldn't be like my plants!!! Go Cats Indoor Cat crunchies help to provide your cat with the protein, vitamins and minerals that they need to help keep them happy and healthy. According to Go Cat cats which spend a lot of time or all of their time indoors tend to groom themselves more meaning they suffer from hairballs and also have litter odour problems, theses particular crunchies contain protein to help reduce hairballs and the chicory which the crunchies also contain helps to reduce litter box odour. The crunchies also have a balance of protein and calories which will help your cat to avoid weight gain which can cause problems later in life. The Crunchies When I first poured some of the crunchies into Laylas bowl I noticed they had that typical smell that most cat crunchies have, they also looked like any ordinary brand of crunchies consisting of small round biscuit shapes in different shades of brown, the only difference with these was that there were also small green coloured biscuits mixed in, I assume these are the garden greens. I was a little unsure as to whether Layla was going to like these or not especially with the garden greens in them, cats can be very fussy as all cat owner will know. To be honest there's not a lot else I can say about the actual appearance of the crunchies as they really did just look like regular crunchies with a few added green bits. Laylas Opinion Now Layla loves her food, I think eating is her favourite pass time and she gets very excited and purry when she knows her food bowl is being filled, I was a little unsure as to whether she was even going to try the crunchies, cats can be very fussy when it comes to food as all cat owners will know, and you cannot make a cat eat something it doesn't like!!!! I placed her bowl on the floor where she ate until most of the food was gone. I was pleased that she had liked them but was unsure as to whether it was a case of she actually enjoyed them or it was just something new, however several days later she was still loving the new Indoor cat crunchies, even to the point where she was knocking the box over herself to get at the crunchies inside the box, she is now on her third box of these crunchies and is still enjoying them. Some crunchies I have given her in the past she will only eat when put with meat however with these ones she will quite happily eat them on their own, so I think i can safely say that Layla would definitely recommend Go Cat crunchies for Indoor Cats. Feeding Guide The feeding guide located on the side of the box is shown with both numbers and picture and shows the recommended amount you should give your cat depending on their size. 3kg Cat = 55g of crunchies 4kg cat = 75g of crunchies 5kg cat = 90g crunchies Personally I do not go by the guidelines on the box and just pour a small amount into Laylas bowl which i sometimes mix with some meat as well for a change, she is only a small cat and prefers to eat little and often rather than 1 or 2 big meals a day, she has recently been weighed by the vet and is the perfect weight for her size so I am happy to carry on with this method as it seems to suit her, but should you wish to stick strictly to the correct amount of food per cat size the guidelines are there for reference. Price As I mentioned the fist box of Go Cat crunchies for Indoor Cats I didn't not pay for as I received a coupon for a free box, however I have since brought this particular product from my local Tesco and a 375g box costs £1.18, personally I feel these are a fairly priced especially as Layla loves them so much, although I wouldn't mind how much they cost as long as she liked them. With a lot of the Go cat crunchies you can buy them in a larger box as well, however in my Tesco I have only ever seen the 375g box, although you may be able to get the bigger version else where as these crunchies are widely available in most supermarkets and pet shops. Overall I would say I have to recommend these crunchies mainly as Layla likes them, whilst she does still have other crunchies from time to time along with meat she does particularly enjoy these ones even though she is not an indoor cat. I cannot really comment on whether they actually help with things like litter odour as she only goes to the loo outside, she is left in the house whilst we are at work all day as I like to know she is safe and she does have a litter tray should she need it but to be honest she has never used it. As for helping with hairballs we did recently think she was suffering with them, although it turned out not to be that, she has never really had any problems with hairballs despite being all fur and not a lot of cat, but again it is hard for me to comment on these factors as Layla is not an indoor cat and these are issues that indoor cats can suffer with more. However I think they are very reasonably priced and layla would highly recommend them.

              A dry cat food that makes your indoor cat look and feel great

              I have two cats. One that loves the outdoors and another who just cannot face going outdoors, even when it is sunny and dry. Having never owned an indoor cat I struggled to find a nutritious dry food that he would enjoy eating and that would be good for him. They both eat wet pouches in addition to their dry food so the wet food was not a problem, but, what dry food was I going to get for my indoor cat, to make sure he was not missing out on anything? I went to my local pets at home store and got talking to a sales assistant who recommended I try go cats indoor dry food, so I did. At first I was a bit pessimistic, not because of the price, even though it is quite pricey, but more so because it didn't look any different to normal dry cat food. The first time I came to feed my cat his breakfast he rushed to see what I had given him, and thankfully he ate the whole thing and then wandered off, so it must have been OK. After 3 weeks of feeding him his go cat I have to say his fur is a lot smoother than it was previously and his eyes definitely appear brighter. I am very happy with the results I have achieved from this indoor cat food and because of the results it is a product I will continue to use, and one I will continue to recommend to other indoor cat owners. The packaging for the go cat complete for indoor cats is bright yellow and easy to find on any good supermarket shelf. Price of the food does vary dependant on of course where you buy it from. I have however found Wilkinson's (the larger stores) to be very competitive on price and the cheapest around (for me). The cat food looks more appetizing than cheaper alternatives. It has green and orange pieces of food in it, as apposed to just brown pieces that you just seem to get with cheaper cat food. In my opinion if you care about your indoor cat and want to make sure they get the nutrients they need and want then you will not go far wrong with this go cat, just make sure you shop around to get the best price around, as prices vary quite widely, and you don't want to pay more than you have too.

              Give your indoor cat what it's missing outside

              I live in a second floor flat in my building and we have one female cat, bo. We started her off on half wet food and half biscuits from Morrisons. During the time that we were feeding her this she never seemed unhappy or off her food, but then one day in the supermarket I discovered the go cat complete. I pointed out the go cat box to my girlfriend and had a look, it comes across very good for indoor cats and provides them with the nutrients that they are missing out on through exploring outside. After reading the box we decided to purchase it to try and help the cat live a healthier life. We tried our cat with the biscuits and she took to them pretty quickly, there was no need to gradually introduce them as she obviously likes them. She has never looked back either! We normally have trouble intoducing new food to our cat but she has took to this and eats a lot of it, she likes it even more than the wet food. I have tried persuading my girlfriend to put her onto just the biscuits but she seems to think that she needs the wet food. I don't think this would make any difference to the cat as the biscuits cover her needs so keep this in mind. The packs are available for around £2.50 - £3.00 and last around 2 weeks, our cat has a pretty normal appetite but if you have a hungry one they may not last as long. I hope you find this review useful, to sum up gocat indoors is very good for an indoor cat and my cat seems to love the taste!

              All things considered Go Cat has Gina & Gable's paw of approval!

              375g for 95p! Looks good at first glance. I stood there in the grocery store aisle as my other half did his loser calculations. According to him our normal bag of cat food lasts us 2 weeks and it would take 3 boxes of the Go Cat stuff to last that long. But even so the price was still going to work out less so I over-ruled him and bought a box to see how the cats did with it. By the way there are other pack sizes, 950g and 2kg but our local doesn't seem to have them in stock and I'm way too busy (lazy) to go to another shop. Purina Go Cat for Indoor Cats is of course geared towards cats that don't go outside. It contains natural fibres to help digestion and also help reduce hairballs that usually happen from excessive grooming. This food contains chicory which is what helps the cats digestion and apparently reduces litter box odours. Cats are more likely to be overweight when they stay indoors which is something Purina has kept in mind and the box actually states that the food contains a good balance of protein and calories to help avoid unwanted weight gain. Maybe I should recommend this stuff to my mum ... her cats are bigger then some pigs! Our cats do go outside but not on a daily basis. They go out for a couple hours a week and that's all. I think that's why I was pulled towards this type of cat food initially. The look: Inside the yellow box is the small round/oval shaped food pellets. The pellets are in a few colours which I guess must be the different meat and vegetable bits. Green, yellow and orange. Did look a bit yummier then their previous food. Taste test: No! I didn't try it myself! Our greedy kitty sat at my feet watching my every move with this box of food. He knows when something is for him. Whilst I was still pouring the food into his bowl he had already started eating it. Our other cat slowly made her way down the stairs and tucked in. I usually wait an hour or so to see how the food has gone down. In past experience if it doesn't agree with them it will return by then! Thankfully they enjoyed it. Dental care: It's known that crunching on dry food like this helps break-down tartar and keep kitty teeth healthy so always a good idea to give your little ones some dry nibbles even if they end up having wet and dry food everyday (ours do). When we first got our lovely kitties we chose food that had the highest percentage of meat in it as opposed to so many of the foods around that had water as the first ingredient. I'm not entirely sure where to place Go Cat as it doesn't have as much meat and the first ingredient is cereal but there seems to be a lot of goodness with all the vegetables and stuff like chicory... Smelly cat: This food claims to reduce litter box odour! Well our cats are stinky bums let me tell you! And nothing can stop them form bombing the house. They are stinky moggies and no food will change that! As we'd have to buy more of this then our normal brand it comes down to the storage issue. We don't have room to keep the extra boxes around and I'm not in favour of doing more shopping trips then I have to. If the larger box/bag were sold at my local grocery store I would consider alternating their foods to give them a bit of variety. Maybe I'll buy this every now and again for a little change but not as a regular thing. For more information visit www.go-cat.co.uk © oioiyou 2009
