Pros:high protein, no grains, no cheap fillers or by-products

Cons:sold only at PetSmart, not cheap

The Bottom Line: This is an excellent grain-free cat food and not as expensive as some of the others.  I will definitely be buying it again.


There are 5 cats currently living in the house.  Four of them are adults and one of them in a 9 month old kitten who managed to survive SuperStorm Sandy as an abandoned 5 week old kitten.  I discovered what I think it a PetSmart-exclusive line of pet food, Simply Nourish.  I've been feeding them the Chicken and Rice Dry Cat Food for the past year or so with good results.  When I saw that there was a grain-free version of it available, I immediately added a couple of bags to my cart. 

About This Product

Simply Nourish Source Cat Food
is a dry kibble that is high in protein levels and grain-free.  The label states that it is a complete and balanced diet and contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. 

The main ingredients include chicken, chicken meal, turkey meal, dried potatoes, dried peas, canola oil, flaxseed, tomato pomace, dried egg product (what the heck is that?), salt, and a bunch of vitamin and mineral supplements.  The guaranteed analysis of this food is 40% protein, 18% fat, 5.5% crude fiber, and 10% moisture. 

This brand of pet food is sold exclusively at PetSmart company stores and on their internet site.  I usually pay about $30 for a 12 pound bag at the local store. 

Our Experience

I've been feeding the cat crew Simply Nourish Source for the past several months and they've done very well on it.  Cats are carnivores and don't have the proper digestive enzymes to break down the cheap fillers that common cheap cat foods (Friskies, Deli Cat, Iams, Science Diet,etc.) contain like corn, wheat, and soy.  Because they can't completely digest them, they cause weight gain and also often cause allergic reactions due to the plant components that aren't part of the diet they have evolved to have.  They have solid stools, clear skin and eyes, and no allergy issues.  Their coats are soft, silky, and don't easily shed unless it is spring and time for them to reduce their winter coats. 

Yes, this food is double or even triple the price of other dry cat foods, but I truly believe that it is worth the expense.  Because it contains more nutrition per bite, the cats actually eat less food than they would with the cheaper stuff.  I only have to buy a 12 bag of this food once every other week to feed 5 cats and the occasional stray that wanders through the yard.  That is a pretty decent deal in my book. 

Overall Opinion

Simply Nourish Source
is an excellent dry cat food for those who are looking to feed their cats a product that doesn't contain mystery meat, by-products, artificial preservatives, and cheap grain fillers. My cats have done very well on it for the past couple of months.  I believe in a high-protein and grain-free diet for cats, so I'm very happy that my cats are doing so well on it and plan to continue to feed it to them in the future.  Highly recommended!
