This cat food, based on brand name alone, is better for your cat than a lot of other cat foods. Nutro simply stated - is a good, solid brand for your cat. Cats being the creatures they are - are finnicky and one of my cats loved this food and one of them hated it! I couldn't rate this cat food anything less than 4 stars just because one of my kitties turned her nose up at it. Anyone who has a cat, knows their nature and knows you could bring the most expensive food home and they could still turn their silly noses up at it. So I am basing this on the reaction of my other kitty - obviously the one with some sense and smarts in her head! For her, she absolutely loves it because it is filled with many quality ingredients and not bad fillers like a lot of other cat foods are. For me, that is why I choose to pay for a more expensive brand of cat food. I want my kitties to have better-for-them food. I like the brand Nutro so much, I even feed my kitties dry Nutro 'Natural Choice Indoor Healthy Weight Adult Oceanfish'. And they BOTH love it!
