Hill's® Science Diet® Adult Indoor
reformulated food rejected by cat
I want to begin by stating that I have consistently purchased Science Diet (Indoor, and/or hairball control) for 4 years, which my cat appeared to have enjoyed. Upon realization that my cat stopped eating the food on Sunday, November 17, I thought she was feeling bad. Last night I provided her with a different type of food, which she devoured. I thought there might be an issue with the new and improved formulation, which led me to this website. From a review of other posts, it appears that this is not an isolated instance...If my pet does not adopt to the new formulated food, HIlls will lose an established customer to another brand and I will have to provide the two bags of food to the area homeless felines...

Cat dislikes new and "improved" indoor cat food
Sorry but my cat hates the new "improved" adult indoor cat food. She was a rescue kitty from a shelter and was eating the indoor formula when I adopted her four years ago and loved it before the change.

Works for my allergic cat
We have three cats.....one has food allergies.
Science Diet is a reasonably priced food that does not cause her to go bald AND all three love the food! We have an empty dish everyday.
And, the vet is pleased with our switch!
We highly recommend Science Diet!

Both my cats love science diet! They cry for it like they would wet food. I don't know why I didn't switch sooner!

The Cat's Meow
Thank you Hills for the free bag of cat food. Hill's Science Diet is the only food I ever feed my cats and they absolutely love it. Anytime I try to change to foods I have problems so I just stick with what I know is best.

Cats Hate New Improved Food
My cats loved their Science Diet Indoor food until I opened a new bag a couple of week's ago. Neither of them appeared interested in eating the stuff, including our adopted feral cat who usually eats anything put before him. They would pick at the food but never cleaned the bowl in one sitting. Was about to call the vet when I decided to check the bag to see whether the formula had been changed. Bingo! "New and Improved," says the label. They are slowly realizing that it is eat this or...........
Wish I had realized there was going to be a change in the formula. I would have mixed the old with the new for a week or two.

Great kitty crunchies!
All 3 of my cats love Science Diet. The oldest, Meems, who is 15, loves it SO much that whenever I open a new bag she literally eats the food as I'm pouring it!

My cat's favorite food
I've tried a number of different dry foods but always return to Science Diet Adult because my cats like it best. I know it's high quality food so I feel good giving it to them.

I don't understand why vegetables had to be added to the science diet dry food. Yes, that's what the public wants but no, cats are carnivores. The vegetables should be left for the "natural" products which you carry. Cats are not humans. Vegetables are good for humans, not cats.

My cat loved it!
My cats loved the cat food! They seemed to like it better than any others and their coats seemed to get healthier when they were on the food.

Neither of my two cats likes the "New, Improved" formula. They cry for food even when the bowls are full. I don't know why Hills has changed this drastically enough that cats refuse to eat it. We used the "old" formula for the last 4 and a half years.
Read the recent reviews. I know that my cats are not isolated cases. Imagine how many people are not taking the time to go online to comment, but are having the same problem.
"New" is apparently not always improved.

New change is bad.
Just found out today this formula has changed and my cat won't eat it. Now what? I have to make a trip to the store invest in several new brands to find something she will eat.
Why change this? If your going to change something cats eat at least warn owners on the old packages so we can intergrate the new. Thanks for nothing Hills!

ADULT INDOOR 1 TO 6 YEARS NEW IMPROVED FORMULA
My cat always ate the original formula. She refuses to eat the "New,Improved Formula." I don't understand why it was changed. I noticed the ingredients are changed. If the ingredients are not changed back, I will never purchase this item again. Sorry!!!

My cat's used to love the adult indoor food - New Improved Formula? I think not.
I've fed this particular food to my cats for many years and they have LOVED it. Loved until the new 'improved' formula came out. Now they sit, looking at their full fresh bowl of food and meow at me. I've tried and tried to no avail and they will barely touch this food. If they aren't liking it, I find it unlikely that it's improved. And i wonder if they gave this version to cats who've been eating the previous version to see if they liked it.
Also, I was reading a few reviews and honestly, many of them sound 'manufactured' and fake. Most likely because there are probably many complaints and the Science Diet PR department had to step in to make it now sound so bad.
I work in advertising and can easily read between the lines. I cannot imagine that I'm the only person having this issue.
I want the old formula back! So do my kitties!!!

Best formula for indoor cats
When I first brought my kittens home almost a year ago, there fur was so dry/ stiff and there kitty litter stunk. Everyone that met them said the same thing what are you feeding them? After about the 5th person to ask me this I decided to do my research. I really liked the reviews / hills website which gave so much information, I ran out to our local pet store and bought a bag of science diet kitten dry food (currently using indoor adult dry food.) immediately the sisters loved it. With in a few weeks I noticed a huge difference in the kitty litter box and there coats were so shiny and silky/soft. I couldn't believe the difference cat food could make. Now all I do is brag about science diet to all my friends and family, it's worth every penny you spend! My cats love it so much I even give it to them as kitty treats, they love it that much!! Thank you hills science diet for your amazing formula.

My cats and I love this food!
I have 2 indoor cats and have always fed them Science Diet. I was very excited when I 1st saw the Indoor Cat formula! My babies love it! They are both healthy happy cats. It has aided in in digestion and hairballs. It reduced feces odor dramatically! I mixed this with Science Diet Adult at first and the cats picked out the Indoor formula and ate it first! This is now the only formula I buy!

A Good Dry Indoor Cat Food
I got my cat from the local animal shelter about nine months ago and she is now about two years old. She has become a treasured pet. The Hills Science Diet company provided food to my local shelter as to many others: a classic example of doing well by doing good. I received a complimentary bag when I adopted my cat.
I did some serious research on cat food and learned more about it than perhaps I care to know. Informed views vary, as with virtually any subject, on the merits of dry versus wet cat food, on the qualities of different brands, and on cost.
On dry versus wet -- I feed my cat predominantly wet food consistently with most but not all recommendations. But she gets at least some dry food daily and I feed dry food when I am going to be out of the house for most of the day, as it can be eaten at the cat's own pace. Make sure the cat has plenty of water available.
Hills Science Diet is a long time manufacturer of pet food with an established reputation. This dry food for adult indoor cats is a high quality product which has been advertised as suitable for weight control, with proteins and antioxidants. The product is nutritionally complete and balanced in accordance with established and recognized standards (AFASCO). With some wishful thinking, perhaps, I have designated my cat as "indoor" although she looks yearningly outside. She had this food at the shelter and after some experimenting I have settled on it as her indoor cat food. She always eats it readily, both when I feed it as her daily food and when I feed it as a supplement to her wet food, and leaves nothing left over. The food comes in small pellets, sometimes triangular but more recently round in what I think is an improved version. I am confident in and trust this product and the cat likes it. It has received high reviews from impartial and capable professional reviewers. I have relied upon several detailed reviews in addition to my own experience with the product.
The product is not the most inexpensive, but it is worth it. It is not as easy to find as supermarket brands but is reasonably accessible.
All told, an excellent dry food for an indoor cat. I am happy with it, the cat is happy with it, and I enjoyed learning about it.

Great food for my cats
I was hesitant to feed my cats this brand because some people had told me in the past that when their vets put their pets on this food their pets didn't like it. When I noticed that two of my three cats were putting on some weight I talked to my vet about it and as I expected he recommended Prescription Diet for them. Happily, both of my girls like it! But what surprised me was that my other cat, who is not chubby at all, started stealing their food instead of eating her own. Her food was a grain-free formula that I was trying to find a substitute for after learning that grain-free isn't necessarily the best food for our cats, it's just trendy right now. Anyway, after seeing that she liked their diet food so much I decided to try this formula of Science Diet based on her needs and the favorable reviews. She now eats this food and really likes it. I am so happy because I know it's a good product and our vets recommend it. I used to think that if the food I got for them smelled good to me then it had to be good. But you know what? Cat food shouldn't smell good to us! At least that's my opinion. So while this food may not smell so tasty to me, that's OK because they seem to love it! I will definitely recommend it to people myself.

my cats grew up on Science Diet, 1st from the MDSPCA. It was also recommended by my vet, especially when i changed to another brand. This is better for my cats & they love it. Their health is great & they don't like any other brand.
