I bought a bag of the Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers Soul since I heard it was good. My kitties LOVED it. Never seen them take to a new food so quickly before. Was wondering what others out there thought of this food and company. Good, bad? I had been feeding them Iams but after all the bad things I heard about that company, I don't want to feed them that anymore.

Anyways... I bought the adult formula to try with them since that was all the store had. My kitties are 9 and 4 mmonths old. I will buy the kitten formula next time. What is the difference really? Is it bad that I am giving them an adult food? I didn't buy a big bag, just a small one to test. I would love to feed them Innova or Wellness but those are MUCH too expensive for me at this time. I had heard someone on this site talk about the Chicken Soup foods so i decided to try that but would love to know what you all think about it.

Thanks!

I've used the Chicken Soup food in the past and mine loved it and did well on it. Its made by Diamond which is a reputible company IMO.
The kitten food has more protein and fat than the adult food and a higher target urine ph but the adult food is fine to feed to kittens that are 5 months of age or older according to the vet at Diamond.

Lol Samsintentions. I may have to try it too. The problem is if Handsome had his way he would weigh about 16 pounds, instead of his 12.5 lbs. He's a big muscular kitty, but he could easily become overweight if I'm not careful with his food intake.

Chicken Soup is currently my second favorite food. Nutro Maxx is my first favorite. Chicken soup is a very good brand and my cats like it. Sometimes when you switch them to a new food they gorge on it, but they usually go back to normal once they get used to it.

My only problem with it is the kibbles tend to break into small pieces and it is a little annoying.

I tried Nutro Max, my cat got sick. The vet said that it was too strong for my cats tummy.

This is one of the only brands that my cats would not eat. I've tried it twice both the Max and the Natural Choice versions.
Nutro is available right at Petsmart and Petco. Here is their webpage if your interested: www.nutroproducts.com

BTW, Nutro will send you coupons if you request them via email.

Nutro has a lot of different foods from what I could the only difference between them and Nutro Maxx is the price. Nutro Maxx is their cheapest line. My cats love it but not too much. One of my cats got really fat on Diamond, but the others didn't like it. They like Chicken Soup but not as much as Nutro Maxx. The kibbles are big fish shaped pieces, but that didn't seem to bother my guys. Their coats looked the best on it and they had a lot less waste.

On Chicken Soup their coats aren't quite as nice and my one cat who farts a lot has the most foul smelling gas on it. My dogs had really foul gas and poop too. Although on their second bag of it it seemed to get better.
