why has the price increased so much?

my cats really love this but your price increase is outrageous. I am going back to Chicken Soup for the cat lover’s soul light it is better and cheaper.

Our cats love it! Natural Balance is the best!

I’ve been feeding our two cats this for over a year now and they still love it. One of them has always been a little hefty and after moving he is forced to be an indoor cat, causing him to gain weight. I orignally fed them Halo cat food, which was fine, but contained far too many ingredients. I love how this brand doesnt fill the ingredients full of fillers like corn or any other grains. Great product, terrific company!

Fancy food for my pound purry.

I used to give my cat raw meat patties and the regular (non-light) version of this cat food. Over time, he started to prefer the dry food and ignore the raw meat. We stopped with the meat and switched to the light Natural Balance, and the cat adjusted just fine. This is the least expensive premium cat food I have found, and my cat is healthy and sports a luxurious, glossy coat. He’s eaten Natural Balance for two years, and I prefer giving him a protein rich premium cat food in the hopes that he won’t develop kidney stones or diabetes, both common ailments for male house cats in their later years.

WAAAAY OVERPRICED

First off I love Amazon! This cat food Has done wonders for my large cat. When I first purchased this diet cat food my cat was 21.7 pounds, within two months he had gone down to 19.8, That is 2 POUNDS!! Also ever since I had been feeding my cat Iams(corn based)Cat food he always had flaky dry skin just above his tail. After a few weeks of this cat food it has disappeared and never came back(18 months)!! Also after a month or two his coat was noticeably softer, much softer!! I couldn’t believe it!

As for the price, Pet supermarket’s Regular price here in Florida is $21.97 for a 15 pound bag. That savings might be worth a little extra driving. CHEERS

Great product if you need/prefer to feed dry food

I’ve been feeding our indoor cat this food for about two-three years now, and she loves it. I did quite a bit of looking around to find a dry food brand that didn’t add a ton of grain fillers and other unhealthy ingredients, and this one does that without completely breaking my bank like some of the higher end cat foods. I prefer to feed my cat wet food since it’s healthier for them, but she’s a “grazer” during the day, which doesn’t work well with wet food. I don’t feel bad about giving her a scoop of this in the morning to munch on throughout the day though. The six pound bag lasts her around two months at 1/2-3/4 cup per day. The reduced calorie type is great for her since she’s an indoor kitty, and she seems to love the flavor. She’s seven years old now and so far has been incredibly healthy plus maintains a normal weight. We always get comments on how soft and beautiful her coat is, and I think it has a lot to do with giving her higher quality food.

A Natural Way for Cats to Lose Weight!

One of my cats was gaining weight after I had her spayed, probably because I felt bad for her and was giving her extra treats. I put her on this reduced calorie natural balance food and it worked!! She’s so much healthier and has more energy now. I 100% recommend this to anyone looking to help their cat shed a few pounds.

My cats would not touch it

My three adult cats would not touch this catfood. I had to give it away to a friend who rescues cats. She said her cats ate it but will eat anything. I guess my cats are more finicky.
