  1. Nance Says:

    I have been feed my cats 5-Diamond for just over six months now, starting with a 3 month gradual introduction, mixing with the kibble they’d been eating for years.

    Although the cats are eating 5-Diamond, I’ve noted that they are much messier with this food.
    1. The kibble seems to break down into tiny pieces. I’d say approximately one third of the food ends up into tiny pieces.
    2. Unusually, I’m finding more food outside of the bowl requiring more cleanup. This is a new habit for my girls, which leads me to believe that they’re not quite as interested in it (due to flavor? texture?) and are playing with this kibble.
