My Cat Insists on Tasty Diet Food
I initially purchased this cat food simply because it was recommended by the lady at the pet shelter where we adopted our kitty. Actually, she recommended either Science Diet or Iams. Since the Science Diet happened to be on sale that day, that's what we purchased. During the adoption process, we were strongly advised to keep the cat indoors for her safety and longevity. However, a cat that can't explore outdoors is more likely to become overweight. The first year of our guardianship, our kitty put on a little weight. Not too bad, the vet said, but enough to recommend a light formula cat food. We've been feeding our cat **Hill's Science Diet Light Formula Feline Maintenance** ever since. According to the manufacturer, veterinarians recommend and feed Science Diet more than any other pet food. That sounds like a ringing endorsement to me. The formula is designed for cats one to six years old (*our kitty is four-years-old*). In addition, Science Diet Light is nutritionally balanced with an advanced Recommended Daily Allowance of nutrients. My cat has had a clean bill of health since we adopted her two years ago. Her fur is soft and healthy, her eyes are bright and clear, and she's had no digestive problems or any issues with hairballs. Moreover, she loves the taste. I once attempted to feed her Iams (it was on sale) and she would have none of it. One small issue that is noteworthy is that recently, the product has been altered to make the chunks of food smaller. While it is easier for her to eat the dry little nuggets because they're smaller, they tend to scatter all over the floor. And I noticed she tends to eat more of it because it's easier to eat. All in all, I prefer the original version of this cat food. Bottom line: she loves the cat food and she's been happy and healthy since she's been with us. Oh, and she did drop a little weight as well. I'm as happy with Science Diet as my cat is.
