Welcome!In case you're new here and didn't already know, Venus, Mittens, and myself are part of the Chewy Influencer program, which means each month Venus gets to try something new that Chewy has to offer in their online store. Chewy.com has a wide variety of pet food ranging from wet to dry to raw to freeze dried, as well as treats, toys, and other pet supplies for cats, dogs, and more!
For the month of September our family was given the opportunity to try out the Natural Balance LID (Limited Ingredient Diet) Grain Free Dry Cat Food. Of the varieties available, we received the Green Pea & Salmon Formula for our cat, Mittens, to try.
Please note that this item is a press sample, received in exchange for an honest review. This does not in any way influence my opinion of this product, but something I want to mention just so my readers are aware.
The Green Pea & Salmon Formula contains Green Pea and Salmon as components of the first four ingredients. I think this is important because in the short time we're had a cat I've noticed most mainstream cat foods in the grocery store are composed of corn and not much else (as are most commercial dog foods) and that just isn't ideal for a cats diet.
Mittens is on the tail end of this feeding scale, and weighs roughly 15 pounds. According to the feeding instructions she should be fed about three quarters of a cup of food per day, but if you know anything about [most] cats, it's that they have a fear of death if their bowl ever reaches the point of being half empty. We free-feed Mittens, but I do monitor her intake and find she eats a bit less than suggested for her size.
Mittens is not a particularly picky eater - she eats nearly any dry food I drop into her bowl (she's really not a fan of wet food or treats though). However, she seems to really favor this food. Since I've started feeding it, she comes running when she hears the bag crinkle, and she doesn't allow any to drop onto the floor. This is really a good food for her all-around!
Thank you Chewy for allowing us the chance to try this out!
