Cons:Not sold in grocery stores
The Bottom Line: If you want an affordable grain-free, healthy food option for your cat, Indigo Moon is an excellent option. My cats, even the fussiest one, love it!
We own three "adopted" cats. Our oldest is almost seven, but the two youngest were taken in this fall from a home where the mother cat stopped feeding her babies when they were two weeks. She was a stray, covered in fleas and ear mites, so we took the two remaining kittens and hand-reared them until they were old enough for solid foods.
The older kitten is now seven months, weighs ten pounds and is in perfect health. His brother, the runt of the litter, isn't quite as big, but just as healthy. After their last vet check, we had them fixed and the vet said they could start on any adult food. Our oldest cat has a sensitive stomach so I have to be careful about grains in her food. She'd been eating the duck and pea Natural Balance but the kittens hate it. I switched the kittens to California Natural Herring and Sweet Potato, but only one kitten will eat it. The runt opts to not eat at all, which isn't a solution. Though he is still known to sneak raw vegetables during dinner preparation, but veggies are not rich in protein.
Following vet suggestions, I've been trying different grain-free, high-protein foods. Thankfully, our local pet food store is great about accepting returns. Last week, I purchased a 4-pound bag of Indigo Moon Grain-Free Chicken cat food. What a difference! All three cats immediately went to their food bowls and ate their serving within minutes. As days passed, I wanted to make sure interest wouldn't wane, and it certainly hasn't. They love this food.
Things I've noticed is that our older cat has more energy. She usually hides away from the kittens during their rambunctious hour, but now she comes down and plays with them. The kittens are as energetic as ever, especially the runt who is now becoming the more dominate of the bunch.
Main ingredients include: Chicken meal, potatoes, chicken, salmon oil, parsley, ocean fish meal, chicory root, pumpkin meal, almond oil, sesame oil, thyme, blueberries, cranberries, carrots and broccoli. There are also added nutrients like folic acid, vitamin E, calcium, zinc and more. For a complete list, you can find it at the company's website: solidgoldhealth.com
The food comes in 4 ($11) or 15 pound ($30) bags. I buy it at a local pet food store, but I also know it is available at chains like Petco. Considering the quality of the food and the satisfaction my cats are getting from it, I'm thrilled to have found a high-quality food for a price I'm happy paying.
Indigo Moon cat food is now the food that will be served in this house. All three cats love it and they definitely seem happier and more energetic.
