    We have always fed our own cats, and the fosters we care for from a local shelter, a grain-free diet which in the past has always been high caliber. When another corporation purchased the manufacturer of the food we had been using for many years, they promised they would not change the formula. It appears they haven't, but they do appear to have changed the quality of the ingredients. We noticed our cats distancing themselves from their food bowls, vomiting and stools that are not as they used to be. We have been investigating alternatives for our furry felines. Our own cats and our current foster Mom [who has four adorable kittens] give a high five (that's a paw five) to By Nature - especially the Salmon combination. It has a strange color, but they love it non-the-less (perhaps they are color-blind?!)! They also like the Chicken and Turkey combinations. I like the high protein content and they are certainly thriving on their new diet. It is a little on the pricey side, and certainly more than what we were paying for the 13.2 oz cans of what we fed them previously, but they are loving this food! And we are loving their happy healthy attitudes!

    I discovered the By Nature brand about a year ago when my cats were struggling with some chronic stool/GI issues. I suspected food allergies at the time, or perhaps too many carbs and fillers in most of the foods out there, but within 24 hours of trying this food 2 years of poop problems were solved. So up until a few months ago I would have given this food 100 stars - that is how dramatic the difference was in their stools.

    But a couple of months ago I placed an order for the By Nature brand canned cat food and everything had changed. For one, the size and shape of the cans had changed - what once was a 6.5oz can was now a 5.5oz can, and 24 (smaller) cans now came in a case instead of 12, which I find deceptive. In these new smaller cans, a 'block' of meat that doesn't even meet the sides of the can slides around on top of some fatty gravy. And when my husband actually WEIGHED the 'block' of meat alone on a postal scale - and keep in mind that he was unable to remove all of the gravy - the 'block' of meat alone weighed only a pathetic 4.4 ounces. So basically over 1 ounce of this newer formula is now gravy and you're really only getting a pathetic 4.4 ounces of food, not the 5.5 ounces advertised. So splitting one can between 2 cats at mealtime is no longer an option, and my only option now is to open another can every couple of days to compensate and refrigerate the leftovers. In the older 6.5oz cans, there was virtually ZERO gravy, just a nice solid chunk of meat.

    The color of this newer food has also changed - the meat in these smaller cans is now darker in color than what was found in the larger 6.5oz cans, and it appears 'fattier' as if perhaps a lower quality meat is being used. And when I compared ingredients between cans, there were indeed a few that had changed - more fillers, more salt.

    My cats still love the flavor of this newer food, but they loved the original flavor equally as well, and I was buying this brand of food for the health benefits, not necessarily the flavor. And since this change in formula, my cats' stools have regressed. Their stools are much larger again with this change in formula, softer, and they smell more. They are also hungry all the time now, even with my opening a second can at mealtime. Why? More fillers.

    Now when I contacted the company about the can-size change, I was told that the change was made due to the cost of metal, that tin was less costly. And when I explained that it was virtually impossible to split one of these cans between 2 cats and still have them feel satified, I was told they were considering coming out with a dog-food sized can in 2013. Huh? A DOG-food sized can for CATS? I find that absurd since cat owners are feeding cats, not dogs, and who wants to be digging cold leftovers out of a large can at mealtime since there will always be cold leftovers when you're feeding cats from a dog-food sized can? Bottom line: I'm very unhappy with the changes. This company appears to be sacrificing quality for profit, and if they continue to cut corners like this, their reputation will continue to suffer.

          I have multiple cats. They split a can of wet food as a treat every morning. Usually, at last one will walk away from the food before it is gone. Not this food. Each cat cleans his bowl. They all love it.
