I spent a lot of time looking for some good cat food after the first brand that I used made my cats sick. I wanted something with ingredients that I would be able to feel good about giving to my cats. I chose this since it was supposed to be for picky cats and my three year old cat is known to picky. Both of my cats love this food and eat it excitedly. Nobody has gotten sick since we got the food for them several months ago. I love this food.
