Whilst I can't comment on dry food since finding wet food my cats lick the bowl clean. So far so good especially as one of my two cats has a thyroid problem and this food doesn't contain calcium iodate all other brands do.
We fed our cat Applaws chicken dry food in the late evening and were around 1 pm to the sound of our cat vomiting. At 6.30 am the cat was asking to be fed. i gave her a small amount of applaws by 8 am she was vomiting again. The first and last time our cat will be fed on Applaws Chicken. All regurgitated content was similar in color and texture, no other food was given.
Mine absolutely hoof this down! They are all very fit and well with bright eyes and shiny coats. Being interested in animal welfare I like that the chickens were free run too.
It's a good food, my cat love, it but didn't really help with her senitive skin. But I recommend the food anyway
My male British Shorthair absolutely loves this dried food. For the last 3 years he has been getting a small bowl at bedtime to keep him going through the night. He is always hovering around the cupboard to get it at same time every night. It has good quality ingredients. Would recommend.
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.
Good value, 3 cats like it, before and after the change. Doesnt make my old lady cat sick like most other dried food and they don't ask for more food after they have had it. winner all round
great quality food, good even for cats with allergies. My two just love it
I read the recent reviews after placing in order then tried to cancel but was too late. I needn't have worried as it is all being scoffed by my 3 (a raggie, a birman and a tortie DSH) - and it smells just fine to me. Good to know they are eating for their future health and enjoying it.
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!
I bought this as a change a couple of weeks ago, for my three Somalis, previously they were eating Almo Nature Orange Label, but they seemed bored of it - so I tried the Applaws, since all their wet food is from Applaws as well. I started with a small bag to see if they would like it - they hoovered it up within a day. So, I bought a bigger bag, and again it gets hoovered up very quickly - I am amazed at how much they like it. I have 3 Somali cats, and all 3 enjoy it.
Applaws is good value and has better ingredients than some other higher priced dry foods. The gang of four (cats) prefer this to the (more budget) all meat canned wet food so eat less of the canned food now (but they all prefer Acana dry even more and Orijen dry even more still).
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!!!
Cats are obligate carnivores, so it's very important that their diet is meat-based. The digestive system of a cat was not designed to process large amounts of grain and you risk a large number of health problems if you feed them a high carbohydrate diet full of cereals and grains. My cats absolutely adore this food, and they require less of it because it packs more nutrients in each cup than a low quality cat food. They have bright eyes, gorgeous coats and tons of energy! A++ cat 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!
I wanted to switch our cat to a grain free food and after much research decided to try this one out and she loves it! It's also well priced.
My cat is a 3 years old male unneutered. Sins he was small i always used to feed him Whiskas kitten and adult. The main problem i had was that i saw my cat lose weight ( like a a 0.5 to 1kg) the vet used to tell me it might be worms...... not the case... after 3 years of buying Whiskas i read the label and found less than 5% of meat proteins and the rest all wheat’s and fibres. So i changed his diet to Applaws and within the first 2 weeks he gained weight, 4/5 weeks gained more muscles.
APPLAWS IS VERY GOOD I WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO EVERY CAT OWNER,MY CAT IS SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD AND WE HAVE HAD MANY A PROBLEM WITH MANY DIFFERENT VARIETIES OF CAT FOOD, SHE GOT REALLY THIN AND WE PUT IT DOWN TO BEING OLD,SO WE THOUGHT OF TRYING APPLAWS AS IT WAS RECOMMENDED BY A MEMBER OF STAFF IN A CAT SHOP WE HAVE NEVER LOOKED BACK, SHE LOVES ALL THE CAT FOOD AND HAS PUT ON SOME WEIGHT.
Had my cats on James Wellbeloved Hairball for a while and changed to this as it's actually cheaper when bought in bulk. With a Ragdoll x and a Maine Coon we have a huge hairball problem but all three of my cats are much better on this food. They absolutely love it, three clean bowls every meal. I always get comments on how well my cats look, how soft and silky their fur is and it's all down to this food!
Both my cats love this food and have lovely glossy coats. Highly recommended.
I've had Murphy from 13 weeks, he's just turned 7. He was pulling chunks of fur out not long after I'd bought him and after a visit to the vets was diagnosed with 33 different allergies, one of which was grains. The vet recommended I put him on grain free dry food and I started him on james well beloved, he's always been on royal cannin and didnt take to this change at all. I tried another brand but he still wasn't enjoying his food any more. I did some research and liked the sound of Applaws especially as its 80% meat. I tried him on the Chicken but he wasn't keen so I persevered and switched to the Chicken and Salmon as he loves his fish. We've never looked back and he doesnt pull out his fur as much, with 33 allergies he was never going to be cured. Now he's 7 I'm looking to switch to the senior brand. Hopefully he'll eat the Chicken this time, as there's only the one flavour, if not I'll be back researching again.
I've been buying this for a few years now and it's a good fail-safe high quality dry cat food. Far superior to the more famous brands found in the supermarket. We did a slow changeover and didn't experience the runny toilets like some other reviews. The only downside (and the reason for 4 stars) is when I bought the first bag my cat ate it like there was no tomorrow but now she's more "take it or leave it" and will pick at her bowl throughout the day. There are now some other competitive brands that she prefers the taste of (though she would maybe go off those too with time so it might just be her!).
Have been buying this cat food for over a year my cats love it and still love it over a year later, would recommend to all cat lovers
Tried every grain free cat food. The house was littered with samples but madame would have none of it. Applaws chicken is the only dry food she likes. She's been on it for months now and she's still happy. Her fur is soft and shiny and she has plenty of energy. I totally recommend this dry cat food. It's got high meat content, it's grain free and for the quality it's very good value for money.
I always feed my cats on good quality food (Almo Nature, etc) but they always leave Applaws dry food. It's clearly good quality (the ingredients list is excellent, as is the smell!).They love the Applaws wet food though.
I have two fussy indoor boys that get a mix of wet and dry food. They get wet food morning and night but I like to leave a bowl of dry food out for them to snack on during the day. They have never been really keen on dry food but they tucked straight into this and finished the bowl in one sitting! (Very unusual for them...) They now have very shiny coats too! Happy cats! I highly recommend!
perfect for cats with allergies like my Dexter, they will choose applaws over every other food, fantastic product, I will say if your pet has an allergy this is the best I have found for my kittys, Luna my kitten has been fed applaws since she came to us at 7 weeks old and she is healthy active and has a beautiful coat 10/10 for me
Bought Applaws to replace Whiskers dry food as I read great reviews. And also wanted to reduce the smell of the cats poop since I have 2 cats now... Immediately both cats loved it! And best of all the cats don't poop as much and their poop doesn't smell! So it is very high quality! Unfortunately one of my cats regurgitates water and bits of food straight after drinking large quantities of water. When she finishes eating this she goes to drink a LOT. My other cat seems fine with it. I've tested this product for 5 months and my cats both put on about 600g of weight and look healthy. However after switching them back to Whiskers, my cat doesn't vomit any more. I really like this brand however unfortunately will need to look at a different one now because random vomiting outweighs the other benefits.
I have two cats and have been feeding them Bozita dry. One has been fine, but the other is heavyset and has had dandruff. I decided to try him on the higher fat, higher protein, low carb Applaws food. His dandruff has cleared up completely! As for his weight...that will be a longer term project. But I am a very happy cat owner - already, the results speak for themselves.
Our two cats love this food, they choose it over all other available cat food. It is high protein so it is good for them. Most importantly it gives them *cough* nice solid poop that doesn't smell too awful haha! It's expensive, but so worth it.
My two tabbies have been on Applaws dry since they were kittens and they love it! It makes their coats lovely and silky. Wouldn't swap to anything else now!
Wicket has diabetes and missed dry food terribly when we weaned him onto low-carb wet food after his diagnosis. I find Applaws chicken doesn't have a huge impact on his blood glucose numbers, when fed alongside wet. He absolutely adores it.
Shadow my 7 year old cat had been suffering from skin allergy's for about a year. The vet tested many times to find out what was the cause. I decided to change to this food with great results. In the first week her fur was sleek and shined again. She was more active and alert. and all in all can only put this down to change to applaws and it's no cereal diet. She is still pulling fur but it is very much reduced now and I think this is a great food and will continue with it as both Shadow and her big sister loves it to the point of raiding the cupboards.
My 8 cats have been enjoying Applaws dry food for months now,I would not use anything else.I have recently rehomed a kitten and she is enjoying Applaws kitten food.Zooplus are excellent,I cannot fault.
I had need giving my 4 cats pro plan which they loved but my partners 18month old was losing weight so he looked around and saw this. Thinking the 80% chicken sounded good he tried it, she loved it so to save pennies he bought a big bag to try all of them on. All 4 of mine instantly took to it. Dora has now gained weight and looks so much healthier. They all have lovely shiny smooth coats and don't bug me in the day for more. So small an amount does the job.. we took advantage of the buy big bag get small bag free and had the special 2 bags for £67 . Excellent food at a great price, Thank you x
I have 4 cats, 3 tonkinese boys and 1 Siamese rescue female. The tonkie boys cope ok with this food if mixed with their old faithful smilla sensible but Chloe my Siamese chucks up the food 10 mins after eating. I think it's just too rich for her. The quality is great but unfortunately they all have diahorrea on it and Chloe can't keep it down so I'll be back to smilla sensible next month. I think if you start them on this quite young your cats will be fine.
