Rated 5 out of 5 by from Senior savor For years my large main coon mix with hip dysplasia has been in pain. At times could barely move especially with weather changes. He is able to jump and sit like a young cat again due to the minerals in this food. Added bonus not once was there barfing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food for a fussy cat My very fussy cat loves this! we could never change her onto different food as she’d refuse to change. But she loves this more than her previous food and switching over was a breeze

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! My senior cat loves it! He’s very picky with food and was hesitant at first but thoroughly enjoys it! I got it for him because his dark grey whiskers were going white and his grey fur was going a rust color and they are fully restored!!! I’m so happy and it’s easy in his teeth white a softer crunch. He is currently 17.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No more hairballs My cat is now 18 years old and for many years she has had trouble with hairballs no matter what cat food formula I tried. Finally with this food the hairballs being expelled are gone. She has lost weight and is a happier cat.The only odd thing is that she has lost a lot of hair but there is fish oil in the food so I am just watching to see if it comes back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff for Elderly Cats I have two cats, one male and one female, who are now ages 13 & 14, but you'd never know it because they are so healthy. They look 1/2 their age.From 2005-2012, I fed them Purina's Indoor Formula because both of them like to eat too much. They are mostly outdoor cats in a quiet, safe neighborhood but have access to the garage where all their stuff is staged: beds, blankets, toys, cat tree, cubes, boxes, food, and water. When the weather is bad or below 40 deg F, they come inside. They are also constant companions after hours. They groom, cuddle, and sleep together at night. I think this explains in large part why they look so much younger than they are. THEY'RE HAPPY CATS!By 2012, however, I noticed that they were becoming older after I saw some of their old snapshots. They're faces had gotten skinny. I felt guilty for having fed them Purina Indoor Formula for years. So, I did some research and gave IAMS Senior Plus 11+ cat food a try. I slowly transitioned them from indoor to senior plus and they never once got sick. They also seem to enjoy this food and haven't lost any weight, which is a good thing in this situation.They've been eating it for almost a year and the other day (Aug 2013) I noticed them playing outside. The oldest was playing attack cat. It had been a long while since I caught them playing like that. So, I'm not sure if it was coincidence or if the food really lives up to its claims. But, I'm not changing their food despite the expense. If I could afford it, I'd probably feed them the premium/advanced version of IAMS Senior Plus 11+ cat food, but I can't afford it.I do recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fat old cat happy Switched to this from a diet cat food when I realized how old my cat was getting. The cat likes this much better. And, not to be too gross, his stool is healthier looking (it looked dry with the diet food.)
