NICE TO MIX UP DIFFERENT BAGS I will mix up different bags of cat food for Gracie-this way each bowl has an assortment of different tastes for her. She is mostly an indoor cat, but when she goes out, I go out with her. She likes Science Diet and many of the other products. SHE IS A DRY CAT FOOD LADY. June 19, 2014
No more Hairballs!! My cat has a very sensitive belly. Everything I had tried, both wet and dry would irritate him and he constantly had hairballs. I was nervous to feed him because it would break heart to see him so sad when it'd start to come back up. My vet said to try this and I wish we had tried it sooner. He loves it! We've been on it for about 3 months now and I'm happy to say there has not been a single hairball or upset belly. Thank you Science Diet, we have a very happy kitty again!! May 16, 2012
Helps with the hairballs Our cat is a long hair cat so has always dealt with the hairballs. We tried other dry cat foods and have found Science Diet is best for our cat. As she has gotten older we have had to find a food that would deal with the hairballs best. Science Diet is the best all around June 2, 2014
Maintains healthy weight and my cat loves it. My indoor cat has been eating this for over two years and has maintained a healthy weight. He loves his food. He ate a different brand food before and gained weight until he decided he didn't like it anymore. We decided to try this and he hasn't had any problems with it. June 29, 2013
Excellent Product My Cat LOVES! Our rescue cat, Lola, loves this food. She suffers from hairballs, and we wanted a food that would help her eliminate these. Well, this did it for us! She loves the flavor and it makes her coat very shiny and soft. Thanks, Hills, for helping our Lola! June 26, 2012
Hairball control for tubby cats I started my long hair kitten on hairball food early because I didn't want him to have issues. Somehow I always tend to make overweight cats, so when my kitten decided to be a monster cat, I switched him to light food. I was so excited to see that there was still an option for larger cats; he is maintaining a good weight to this day and he is 4 years old! I love science diet! June 25, 2014
Weight control for indoor only cat As an indoor only cat, Merlin's primary exercise is chasing me. My vet recommended Hairball Control Light when he suddenly stopped eating his previous food and she could find no medical reason. I purchased a bag and he has been gobbling it down ever since. She pointed out that the nugget size was good, as he needed to crunch the nuggets and would not swallow the food whole. July 4, 2013
Both cats love it! I have a long hair and a short hair cat - but the long hair cleans the both of them! Since she tends toward hairballs, and my short hair is chubby, this product is an excellent choice. It really does help prevent hairballs, they like the taste, but don't over indulge. So chunky can maintain her coat and her waistline and fluffy will have less episodes of hairballs! June 29, 2013
