Didn't suit my elderly cat, maybe she didn't like the taste enough to eat enough of it?
I was impressed that it's 80% actual meat so I had my cat on this food for a while. She's a black cat and her fur went copper on it. She also lost weight which she didn't need to lose, going from 4 kilos to 3 kilos. The vet found nothing wrong with her. She IS getting older but I tried swapping her food to another brand available here, also with more meat than non-meat, and she is black again and back to her old weight. She went wild when the new bag came, smelling it though the packaging
High quality and cat loves it
To be honest, my cat loves all dry food as she's happily had other brands too so the big plus with this is the high quality ingredients, which has made her coat noticeably glossier. I do also feed her a tin of Applaws senior wet food as the recommended portions for a small cat aren't enough for her.
Would never go back
My cat was on an okay quality food - about 40% meat and not grain free. I always thought she was in good health but after moving to Applaws she's noticeably in better condition. She's leaner, her coat is softer and she's shedding less. One bag lasts about 6-7 weeks if you measure it out properly, which I have to because she absolutely loves it. She gets half a pouch of wet too but she would rather have the biscuits!
My 12 year old cat has been used to one of the brand leaders for years, but I have always been a little concerned about the ingredients. So I tried a sample pack of this, and she loves it. I will not be returning to the previous brand, and on a slightly less pleasant, but important point - I have noticed her poo is much healthier looking since she has been on Applaws!
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.

Great value good quality food
My cats all love this Senior version and I use it regardless of their age due to the added joint care and the coconut oil added. Always great value from Zooplus
3 cats don't like this product.
I bought this product based on the excellent reviews but unfortunately my 3 senior cats are not keen on it at all. I have to mix it with another brand of dry food so it won't go to waste. I have tried other new brands for senior cats and they liked them but not this one.
Are old cats allowed to eat it too?
Mine are pretty lively... So I'm wondering whether my 1 and a half and 3 year olds can also eat this? I've tried so many other dry foods and they don't really like wet food.. GLG
My cats are happy with this and it's great value at this price. I tried Purizon but my cats got obsessed with it and got really fat - difficult to fix with more than 1 cat.
Both of my cats love it - and have done for quite some time! I have not seen any issues in terms of adjustment or compatibility, and if my cats are anything to go by yours will love it too!
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!
I have 5 cats and all bar one (with special requirements) they eat this. They love it, have beautiful fur, and you can tell from the smell that this is a premium product. Grain free agrees very well with carnivores like cats. I have previously used the junior version of the same brand, and it is just as good without a doubt.
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!!!
Perfect dry 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
Yay! APPLAWS has wowed our kitties
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 going to be my go to for the future - I won't change
I have looked around for ages trying to find something grain free to give to my cat. After a small transitioning period - don't give in, keep giving - everything is truly impeccable
Very good dry food for older cats
She always looks forward to eating her meals and the food really agrees with her. Great ingredients without any unnecessary grain!!! Personally I found the size just right, not too small like some have suggested. Ideal for senior cats.
High quality, tasty dry food
The trial pack was very well received by my two seniors. I love the high meat percentage and grain-free mixture! Perfectly sized chunks, especially if your cat is missing a few teeth ;-) The other one loves crunching down on it.
