    I have an overweight and picky eater cat, also I have a smaller cat who is not overweight and enjoys almost any food, they both like this dry food, they seem to get tired of other dry foods, sometimes I add some Wellness Complete Health Salmon dry food to add more Omegas 3 & 6 but they start gaining weight, I think this is a good adult cat maintenance food. Worth mentioning I leave this food for free-feeding and I have to leave only a little of it, or the fat cat will eat it all. I also feed my cats canned food twice a day. One eats Avoderm canned Tuna flavor food, and the fat one eats either Blue Buffalo Tuna canned food, but he gets tired of it after a couple of weeks, so I switch him every two weeks to another canned food (he’s a strange cat)… Bottom line, I’d recommend this food. Their furs have improved with its use as well.

    I just bought Blue Buffalo Weight Control Cat Food last night for its high fiber content. I have 4 cats, two long haired and two short haired. I’m also hoping to see better hairball control.
