Best Natural Product for Kittens We pull kittens from the shelter every year as part of a rescue group and we want them to have the best start. This Ideal Balance natural kitten food is perfect for this. No added fillers that they don't need and the best part is that they like it! They are healthy and active and we know having natural ingredients is good for them. It is also great for our mama cats too until it is time to wean the kittens. It is nice to know that there is an Ideal Balance cat food for adult cats that the kittens can transition to when they are older that has natural ingredients also. September 4, 2014
They LOVE it! Our kittens absolutely love this cat food, and come running when it's time to eat. As a matter of fact, they meow outside the bedroom door when it's time for breakfast....but the part I like the most is that they don't over eat it. They come back here and there for more, but they definitely get excited about it. They also have very shiny coats, healthy teeth, and appear very healthy altogether which I'm sure the food helps with. September 2, 2014
AWESOME!!! My kitten loves this food, she cries for it! and I know with it being Science Diet that it has all the vitamins and minerals that she need to grow properly and develop properly!! Great Food!! August 30, 2014
Great Food! I fostered a litter of orphan 3 week old kittens a while back, and inevitably fell in love and kept one. After being weaned off formula, we put her on Ideal Balance kitten food. She eats great, has a silky soft coat, and is a bundle of never-ending energy. I'm definitely satisfied with this food. August 21, 2014
All of my animals love Ideal balance I am very picky on what I feed my pets. I have tried most of the "grain free" brands. By far this is the best value for what your providing to your furbaby. My kitten has the most shiny coat and she is growing like a weed. There are also many perks like even though the cost is a little higher than the cheapo food, it lasts twice as long, and the horrible litter box smell is substantially diminished when using this product. A must buy!! July 14, 2014
Kittens Love Ideal Balance I wanted my foster kittens to have the very best start in life, so I have been feeding them Ideal Balance. They are eager to eat and have grown beautifully - their coats are in excellent condition. I've been feeding all my cats Hill's Science Diet for nearly 25 years and was very happy to add the new Ideal Balance to the routine. October 6, 2013
Anyway my cat liked it!! I just got my kitten a month ago. He was very weak n looked like he had never eaten dry food before but he has tooth. So I tried this brand n he liked its taste but a little hard to eat. If its next time, please make it more moisture n softer so other cats can eat easier as a starter... Well I see they like the taste for sure!!! Good luck :) )) September 23, 2013
Healthy Kittens - Happy Mom My foster kittens have grown so beautiful and healthy while eating a combination of Ideal Balance Kitten food and Hills indoor kitten food. Since four kittens eat a lot - surprisingly more than expected - I have had to think about cost and, therefore, can't always afford to only feed Ideal Balance. I have trusted Hills for many years to meet the needs of my cats - whatever the age or need. April 29, 2014
