It looks ok, but make sure you keep in touch with Wellness a lot. They seem to change their ingredients pretty often... :o

I tried it w/my 3 cats, they were not all that impressed, the boys would at least taste it, my girl walked away:laughing:

It has a VERY strong fish odor, so if yours likes fish it maybe well liked. I just went back to the indoor health, which they do like.

My cats would not eat it,I bought a 2lb bag for $15:confused:
Orijen however is a winner and I can be certain it has no suspect ingredients.
Plus about 1/2 the price of WC.

I got samples of this too, my cats went nuts over it! They LOVED it! I got the 2lb bag for $7, and sent in the $5 rebate offer. So essentially, it was $2 for 2lbs. I thought at that price, it was definately worth trying.
