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.
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.
Wow, iams! My cat loves your product! She just can't stop meowing for more! Her food is alway unabandoned, and even my dogs like it better that their iams food! I recomend this cat food to anyone with a middle aged cat, and even people with kittens! It is a great product. I will not but anything else. I could tell the difference when we switched food after we bought her. It is excelent, and my cat is very active, espesially after meals. The iams weight control proactive health is a product for

every cat of just about every age and I know that if my cat lives long enough so that she won't always eat it, another package of iams cat food is the only replacement that would be fit for my cat. And any other brand is out of the question completely. No one is convincing me to get another brand.
We own six indoor cats.
They are all very healthy, thanks to IAMS! We have some senior cats with the oldest being 15 and 13 years old. They act as though they are still young cats. Our other cats are young adults.
One thing is for sure. Our cats most definitely prefer the small round shaped morsels as is sold in this particular IAMS food. They do not seem to want to eat the triangular shaped food.
We are very happy with IAMS!! All our cats have a good weight and shiny coats.
My kittens love this food. When I adopted them they were being feed "cheap" cat food, but I knew I wanted to feed them IAMS and I was hoping that switching foods would be easy. Luckily, my cats Sam and Dean (Supernatural) love this kitten food, have never had an upset stomach and the switch was a piece of cat. I realized early on that I needed to have 2 separate food and 2 separate water bowls because the brothers were pushed each other out of the way, but that's because the food's so good. :)
I aquired a Russian Blue Kitten from a local rescue. The rescue owner was feeding a good brand of kitten food but Ziva was still not looking good. She had a dull coat, low energy, and would eat almost 4 cups of food a day. I desided to switch to a differant brand and a friend had a bunch of kitten food after she found it a new home. I slowly added it to Zivas' food and at first she was eating less so I thought she didn't like it but she started to put on weight and her coat got slick and shiney.

Thank you for making a high quality food for my kitten that even a college kid can afford.
Our 1½ year old cat was having stomach issues. Not fun. Every morning we'd wake to a nasty hairball that was thrown up (and a bad litter box). I was afraid he had some virus and was ready to take him to the vet the following day. By chance I passed the Hairball treats (which states to use in conjunction with the food) so I bought a bag of Hairball Care as well. We were desperate to get the issues under control. Within 2 days he was back to complete normal! It's been 2 weeks now and we have had

only one additional hairball and it was a "normal" one. (I should mention that he is long-haired.)
On a side note: he is CRAZY for the food. If his bowl is empty, he knocks it down the stairs and follows you around the house, batting at your legs, until you give him more. I have never seen him eat food so fast and so enthusiastically. Definitely a win-win for all of us!
WE RESCUED OUR CAT...SHE IS A HEFTY 13 POUNDS, BUT MOST OF IT IS LOOSE SKIN...STILL, SHE IS CURVY. I THOUGHT I WAS DOING THE BEST THING FOR HER WHEN I PICKED UP A STORE BRAND "INDOOR CAT" FOOD-FIGURING SHE WOULD GET EVERYTHING SHE NEEDED. WELL, THE VET SAID THAT THE BEST THING FOR HER WAS THE HAIRBALL CARE. IT HAS LESS CARBS AND WILL HELP HER NOT TO GAIN WEIGHT AND STAY HEALTHY. IT HAS ALSO OBVIOUSLY BEEN GOOD TO TAKE CARE OF HAIRBALLS. IT'S NICE TO KNOW I'M DOING THE RIGHT THING FOR HER ON

MULTIPLE LEVELS. AND OF THE "BETTER" BRANDS, IAMS IS SO AFFORDABLE ALSO.
I was sent a sample of IAMS cat food for my cat courtesy of IAMS. But unfortunately my pet cat had passed. I'm still mourning the loss of my cat, but I still have a cat that visits our house. He was a stray cat and friend of my cat that came to visit her from time to time. I call him Key. Because Key is a stray cat, you could probably say that he belongs to anyone who feeds him. When I got the can, I also had a few of my other brand of cat food left. I decided to feed Key the remaining cans of

my cats food then after the last can, I would introduce the IAMS cat food. I noticed Key wasn't eating my usual brand of cat food, so I decided to go ahead and let him try the IAMS. He loved it. One day I forgot to give him another can of IAMS and by accident gave him the other brand, he refused to eat it. So I had to give him a can of IAMS. He might live on the streets, but Key can tell the difference between a tasty cat food and those that do not taste great. If Key could speak, he'd specifically ask for IAMS cat food. The IAMS brand cat food looks a lot more meaty than the other brand I had. It also has the nutrients a cat needs. I guess Key could taste the difference. Key prefers IAMS! Thank you IAMS! And Key thanks you too!
One of my cats absolutely adored this food, however my other feline was very sick after eating it.
Just like any other food, sometimes it agrees with them and sometimes it doesn't. You have to be careful when switching your cats food by doing it gradually.
I saw the price for it at the pet supply store and it's very affordable, I would recommend to other cat owners who aren't looking to spend an arm and a leg on cat food.
Wet cat food is very healthy and a wonderful way for your cats to get the

water they need. Cats in the wild actually get most of their water from the foods they eat, so feeding them this wet food is beneficial for cats. It also has helped one of my overweight cats to lose weight by feeding him wet food.
We have two 1 yr old cats with different tastes. When they were offered this food, they both loved it. Thank you for making this dry food.
I bought this 3 weeks ago, and both my cats go nuts for it.And its very Healthy for my Babies!!!!! And it doesn't break the bank!!! What more can you ask for??
