California Natural Dry Cat Food Reviews

In addition to this, there are no protein fillers, chemical preservatives, wheat, corn, soy, by-products or artificial colors/flavors in any of the California Natural cat food formulas. California Natural dry cat food formulas are currently available in a 5lb bag, and a large 15lb bag.

California Natural Dry Cat Food Consumer Ratings
Consumer reviews of California Natural brand cat food formulas are primarily positive. Many reviewers do not state any negative aspects of the food, and give it the highest rating possible. Pet owners seem to react favorably to the short list of ingredients in California Natural brand cat food, as well as the lack of artificial ingredients. The exclusion of corn, soy and wheat is also a well-received factor of California Natural cat food, since many cats have negative gastrointestinal symptoms in reaction to these ingredients. Especially for cat owners looking for an "all natural" diet for their cats, California Natural cat food was among one of the top choices. As a hypoallergenic formula, the short list of ingredients (and the use of a singular protein source) is a positive factor for pet owners with cats allergic to specific ingredients. Though California Naturals is fairly high priced it is not as expensive as some other ultra-premium cat food brands.
