    Cats won't eat crumbs

    For some reason, my two cats will only crunch the large chunks once, let the rest fall back into their bowl, and not eat the rest. I end of throwing half of it away. Although, for some reason these cats have gone off all Hill's products I have tried after eating one bag. They ate kitten food fine, switched to adult, then switched to prescription CD for urinary health, and they refused to eat any more of it, but acted hungry. And, they both did it at the same time. They will eat the Optimal but only the large chunks. It is a mystery to my vet, we've done gradual changes and tried everything. They do not get any other food (unless, I suspect, something in the neighborhood). After a severe weight loss, they are now up to weight but costing me way too much money in food. Who knows?

    All My cats Love It!

    Comments about Hill's Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Original Dry Cat Food:

    I have 13 rescue cats and a few have Gastrointestinal issues and also Heart problems. I dont believe in feeding your pet low quality cat food if you want them healthy. I used to feed cheaper brands of dry cat food and even hough my cats liked it they were having hairball and gastric issues. I decided to switch to the Hills Science Optimal Care dry food and as soon as I got home and opened the bag ALL 13 of my kitties loved it. I have been feeding Hills since about 1 month ago and since then no hairball issues and minimal gastric issues. Although more expensive I truly believe Hills has made my cats healthier and event their coats look shinier and full. Thanks Hills Science Diet.

    Optimal Care for Optimal Health

    Comments about Hill's Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Original Dry Cat Food:

    I started buying Hill's Science Diet Optimal Care for my four adult cats two months ago and I am very pleased so far with the result. My cats have more energy and a shiny, soft fur coat. I also like that it is small kibble so it makes it easier for my smaller cat to eat. They all enjoy this food very much and it makes me feel good knowing they are getting great quality nutrition in their diet. Definitely worth the money. Will continue to purchase this product so my kitties will live a long, healthy life! Thank you!

    Comments about Hill's Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Original Dry Cat Food:

    Three of our 14 cats absolutely love the product as a regular diet. Their coats have improved a great deal, and we plan to continue using the product. They seem to gobble the food with gusto!! Just wish it were less costly, because we do have so many to feed.

    Original Hill's Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Dry Cat Food

    Comments about Hill's Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Original Dry Cat Food:

    I have been using Science Diet Optimal Care Dry Cat Food for over 2 years now for my two cats. Most up most of importance other than how much my cats love the taste, is this cat food contains a lower level of magnesium than the cheaper brands of "supermarket" cat foods.I have had several cats in the past arise with urinary/urethra problems from feeding cheaper brand high sodium cat foods.Is why the very importance of the low magnesium levels in Optimal Care Dry Cat Food helps to prevent urethra problems, especially in male cats due to their more narrow urethra.I really have noticed how my cats coats went from course dull looking to shiny and silky soft.I have found that the price is pretty reasonable in comparison to other brands you find in the store or pet warehouse.Up most the quality of this cat food is definitely the best i have ever tried. Both my cats are nutritionally satisfied and the food goes a long way.I really love the small bite size of this cat food, and this is what my cats seem to love also. I won't feed anything else.I have fed other name brands of cat food to my two cats in the past and their was always problems with my cats spitting up / vomiting up of their food daily on our carpets.Since have switched to feeding my cats Hill's Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Dry Food, I have not once in the two years since I have switched to this food has this ever happen again.The Optimal Care is very gentle and easy for my cats to digest and helps with hair balls.Am very pleased with this cat food and will never ever switch or use any other product.I'm sold on this product!
