One Response to “Authority Kitten Formula Dry Cat Food”
  1. Terri Says:

    I needed a kitten food with no beef or dairy due to having a dog with food allergies that would occasionally get to the cat food. This food is well loved by my kitten, the price is impossible to beat and due to limited finances I have switched my dog to authority dog food too. She adores it more than her pricey veterinary limited ingredient food. They do make their foods flavorful and inexpensive and for those of us needing to pare back financially, this food is a godsend.
