I was buying the 22 Lb. bag of indoor cat chow , but I can’t find it anywhere anymore!!! So now you are selling less poundage bags for the same price as the bigger poundage bags ! What’s up with that ????
My 17 year old cat has eaten this food all her life even though I tried getting her on a “healthier” cat food. Been healthy her whole life. I noticed the bag change recently and thought nothing of it but then her stools became loose and watery a few days in. I luckily found more of the old bags at market and bought them all. I emailed Purina and confirmed there was a formula change. Why? As animal lovers we all know a diet cannot be changed rapidly but doing this unknowingly is deceitful. I’m now left with looking for a good food she will adapt to 17 yrs into her life. Very disappointed.
The new rewards program is not as user friendly as the old program. You must download a picture of the receipt from your smart phone connected to the internet. I have a flip phone with no internet access. Many seniors and others don't have this technology or know how to use it. The new rewards has just eliminated these people that previously were a member.
We got this as a last resort for my cat, as we normally purchase the gentle cat version of blue buffalo for her, but there has been a recent shortage of cat dry foods so we purchased this. She ended up vomiting the entire night, into the morning and if she continues I am going to take her to the vet. If your cat has a sensitive stomach and has been eating something prior to this, do not switch them to this.
This new non-paper bag is awful. Each time I open it, it tears a little more. One of these days I’m going to have cat food all over the floor. And apparently it isn’t recyclable.
Quality is OK. I buy Purina dog food, the Friskies wet (don't get any points) by the case and 2-3 Bags of the Naturals dry (18lb) per month (can only claim points for 1 small bag and 1 large bag per month). The program was revamped all my points are now gone. The food is over processed and the cats throw up all the time. This food is too EXPENSIVE!!! The rewards program stinks and I had been saving Purina Weight Circles and then that was discontinued., so what Have I gotten for participating in these Purina programs??? I rescue feral cats.
What changed in the Cat Chow Naturals Original and Indoor versions of cat food? And in the Party Mix cat treats? And in the Tidy Cat clumping, scent free and other versions of cat litter, but mainly the scent free??
About 8-9 months, maybe longer my 2 cats, both started to develop an allergy or something to these products. My long-hair tabby would scratch and chew herself to the point that she would bleed and have scabs on her tail, back, chin, chest, ears and shoulders. My short-hair Calico, would lick and chew herself until her stomach, tail and legs were hairless. Her eyes would run like she was crying over a long lost love. And before you say anything about fleas, they are both flealess!
After much trail and error, the main difference are the Party Mix cat treats! ...the Cat Chow Naturals cat food!! And the Tidy Cat cat litter!!
I had to change my cats' whole routine to figure out what was bothering them. What stinks is that even though making changes...not giving them Party Mix treats (now a competitor's brand), not using Tidy Cat litter (using a competitor's brand)...I am not feeding them Cat Chow Naturals, but I am giving them Fancy Feast hard food. And I am still giving them Fancy Feast canned food....which they love and will not eat anything else. However, my Calico still licks her stomach bald. My Tabby, seems to be ok. On the advice of my vet, I have changed their diet to just the chicken flavors. They do not get any of the "fish" or other flavors...which they miss.
Fancy Feast is a Purina brand and is not perfect because my cats still have issues, they just aren't as bad as they are with the other products. So, what did you change in your products that would make my kitten girl continually lick herself? She is 11 years old!! For the first 10 years of her life, she did not do this!
The new bag design is completely stupid. You can't open the bag with your bare hands at all. I guess I'll just look for another company to buy my cat food from because this alone makes me never want to purchase purina again.
Don't Feed your cats this they NEVER NEED BYPRODUCTS OR SOY OR CORN
I've been a pet shelter foster for 22 years and have always relied on Purina pet foods for nutrition. Recently, not one of my kitties will eat more than a nibble, including Purina Kitten Chow. I had bought additional Purina bags, at different stores, ending in the same result. I placed it for the outdoor cats. They nor the raccoons and possums would eat it either!
I, as well as other foster homes, have now switched to a different brand of food.
I don’t like this website since it changed at all.....
