Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

We recently switched from Iams to this. After about a month's worth of transition, Matilda and I are totally on the new food. We seem to like it and are still very shiny and healthy. Just wanting to know if anyone else eats this food and has had good results from it. Our mommy is very obsessive and is always researching everything to make sure that we (and our human sister) get the best of everything.

    We don't eat it (no Petco in our area--isn't that where it is available??) but have heard only good things about it! Mommy might buy us some when she goes to Florida for Christmas. There is a Petco really close to her cousin's house. Mommy plans to stock up on lots of good healthy food for us!

    Hi Binks!! Me and LuLu eat Natural Balance too. We have for 2 years and we love it. Our vet said it was good and we get good checkups. Mom read the ingredients and thought it looked better than her own diet. Ha It keeps my coat really soft and shinny. You look like you have fur like mine too. Purrrrrrrrs

    Oh yes, Diego... we thank you for the recommendation. Matilda and I look (and act) very healthy. Mommy just got a new bag today. It took a while to use up all the Iams. Mommy mixed the two together until it was gone to give our tummies a chance to adjust. We're going to try the canned food as a treat.

    Hey, I just wanted to add that since Matilda and I have been on Natural Balance 100% for a few weeks now, our coats look so much shinier, we have actually lost a little weight (a good thing) and seem quite a bit more energetic. Our mommy has been giving us canned food three times a week, too (I really like Natural Balance Turkey w/giblet gravy). She's very happy she switched us from Iams and we seem very happy, too.

    Hi ;) Natural balance is a great food and my sisters and I eat the wet natural balance. We have such shiny coats and bright eyes and we are full of energy :) We love it too! For dry we eat Performatrim Ultra cause we all like that. Only me and Ashley liked the dry so my meowmie put us on performatrim because we all liked that. purrrrrrrrrrrrs from Lily

    We LOVE our Natural Balance canned. For dry we eat other stuff, but that is partly because the Petco is too far away from us and Mommy wouldn't be able to make a quick run over there to buy food.

    Hi, Jasmine here~ hope it's not too late to chime in...I LOVE IT!!! I eat the dry and also Natural Balance is my favorite of all the canned varieties. Previously, I tried Felidae and Eagle Pack, but had bowel issues with both of those others. As soon as we switched over to Natural Balance my poop problems got MUCH better, my coat is nice and shiney, and my mom likes NB's ingredients.

    Natural Balance canned food is THE yummiest! Mommy just switch me and my brothers (soooo glad my dog sister is pukey...that' s why Mommy drives almost an hour each way to get NB foods!), and we love it. And I'm a princess and don't eat just anything. Mom promised that when we run out of our Drs. Foster & Smith dry food, she'll try some NB dry food. I said that's okay, but I've boycotted dry food for now. We'll see if that dry NB is as nummy as the wet stuff.
