    I am currently doing the switch over from Purina-One indoor forumula cat food to Blue indoor formula. I have 3 cats and one of them seems to have skin problems. I am hoping this cat food help this problem. They do love the food!

    I will do a follow-up to this email.

    I was using Purina One and after switching over, my cats throw up 80% less! They go crazy over the smell and taste and I though it cost a little more, I feel my cats are getting a much higher quality food which will equate to better health and longevity.

    I have 2 cats, one of which has a sensitive stomach/urinary tract. After looking into the ingredients in Purina One, which is what they have eaten for years, I decided to try Blue Buffalo Indoor formula. I was a little worried I would have the same problem I had when I tried to switch to Science Diet a few years ago (after a few days, they absolutely wouldn’t eat the Science Diet, and staged a protest until I gave them back the Purina). I am happy to say they both love the Blue Buffalo, and my sensitive guy doesn’t have the GI problems he was having. I still find the occasional cat vomit, but overall, I think this cat food is much better for my cats, and worth the extra cost.
