My cats seem to really like this food, but then they aren't that fussy!
I like to try and feed them food without grains, and with as much meat as possible. Mainly because it seems like this is how their diet would be naturally. Before buying Applaws I had never really read the ingredients for cat food, and honestly I was shocked at how little meat is in cheaper brands!
In addition to all that, the price on zooplus is fantastic, so it's a winner all round!
I have a ragdoll cross (from 9 months old and just turned 7) that has been stress over grooming and losing condition. He's been on Hills Science Plan since I got him, I gradually changed in the last three months to Orijen mixed with Applaws and now just Applaws. Within a week of just Applaws, his fur is growing back and soft and silky again and he seems much happier and brighter again.
My siamese cats have been eating Applaws dry food for 3 years now, mainly the chicken flavour but recently they seemed to get a bit bored so I switched to this flavour and they absolutely love it. Definitely the best brand of food we have had.
Neither of my cats have had any problems - my little 8 month old has been eating it for a while now and is developing into a fine specimen! They always lick the bowl clean, and I mean spotless! My 9 y/o gets the adult version and also eats well! Both of them love it!
The potatoes were increased from 10% to 14% and some sweet potato was added. Fine - with 80% meat content that's 140g on 1kg, which is still okay. When you think about grainy foods that have maximum 4% meat content then it seems like a luxury!!! However my cats get soft poo every now and then which is not very pleasant with long fur!!! Other than that - perfect food!!!
Regarding my pets:
+ very quickly accepted, our kitty devoured it without ever having eaten dry food before
+ very compatible, small poos, no diarrhea or itching
+ size is perfect, you can really stretch it if you dose it right (2 cats, 7 kg bag, with wet food lasts roughly 5 months)
+ Perfect shape seeing as cats don't chew so much anyway
- quite salty for cat food
From day one they have licked their plates clean which gives me confidence as the food supplier in the household! As I like to have lots of different flavours for my kitties so that they don't get bored. This was a great find! The pieces are a little small but doesn't make much of a difference with a full mouth as they have to chew! Paws and thumbs up :-) And when it runs out we will graduate to the Adult which offers even more flavours!
This is a really great dry food. I have one cat which would rather go hungry than try out lots of different foods. This kibble is the best alternative I have found. Lots of meat and grain free. My cat loves it. Maybe the kibble could be a bit bigger so that it gets chewed more, but the first few pieces are always just swallowed straight down. Maybe because it tastes so good. After that my cat starts to chew. I really recommend this food.
My cats prefer dry food with chicken and salmon. I like it that this food was created without any animal testing and that the meat comes from animals that have been humanely reared and with no antibiotics. I don't want other animals to suffer for my pet. It also has lots of fish which is important for cats. Most other foods have a low percentage of fish to meat. I definitely recommend this food.
