Rated 5 out of 5 by from The is NO better cat food on the Planet. Period. I have been a devout Science Diet Cat Food advocate since 1981. I have been blessed to be "Mom Cat" to 6 wonderful furry lives since this date. ALL of my kitty blessings have come to me through adoption, and all have changed radically due to the nutritional excellence of Science Diet. All have developed brighter eyes, silkier coats, fresher breath and most importantly, none have had need of the Vet other than bi-yearly exams. Any new potential Mom or Dad Cat I meet I share the benefits you receive from feeding your cat a quality food like Science Diet. It is a return on investment in the form of a healthy, lovely and loving cat. Period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats are healthy and active My cats are healthy and active. They maintain a healthy weight. I feel confident that they have the best chance for longevity and sustained good health with this food. The food is readily obtainable at a neighborhood pet store that is affiliated with a veterinarian's office. My thirteen-year-old cat had a major illness that he has recovered from remarkably. My eleven-year-old cat had a very poor start in life as he was thrown away as a kitten by his previous owner. He blossomed into a beautiful, silken-haired "Mr. Mischief" and you would never suspect what condition he was in when I rescued him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Science Diet Hairball Light Mr. Six Toes, Chubby, and Bear don't agree on many things, but they do all love SD Hairball Control LIght. Bear has a bit of a portion control challenge, so the light formula is the way to go for these three amigos. We also feed SD wet Hairball Control and it is the perfect complement to the dry. This gives Mr. Six Toes the extra fluid he needs and gives all three a time to eat together. Thanks, Science Diet, for helping us keep our pets healthy and happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My cat isn't a fan of the new formula Science Diet changed the packaging and the formula. My cat always ate the old formula like it was going out of style. When I bought the new bag he stopped eating and at first I thought he was sick, since he never turns down a meal. After a few days of not eating I tried the Light only version which he devoured.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula--cat won't eat it Our cat used to devour the old formula of Adult Hairball Control Light. We measured what we put out. The pieces were bigger and "softer"--maybe moister? She would refuse it when it got to be little fragmented pieces that were dried out, which we'd dump. Well, she seems to think the new formula in the new taller gold-trimmed bag, which is smaller pieces that feel much drier, is the little crumbs left from her old food. She leads me to the freshly-full dish, does her figure-8 and tail-shake--even though it's full and is fresh-from-the-bag. she'll occasionally eat when she gets desperate enough. Like the other recent reviewer, I'd almost think she was sick, except her behavior is fine otherwise. She can afford to lose some weight, but I'm not sure how to proceed with this. Do I have to switch brands?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from BAD--Changed Forumula It looks as though the formula has changed (according to the new bag) and now my cat will not eat it (has been eating hairball control light for years). My cat is a fussy eater and now I need to find him a new food he'll eat. Not pleased...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for combating hairballs and reducing weight. We have two Tabbyco (Tabby/Calico) cats. I use the adult light hairball control dry food for them They both love it and come into my bedroom in the morning meowing if their dish is empty. We don't have a problem with hairballs, although we have had in the past with other cats using other food. I have seen that our cats, particularly Ginger, our larger cat, has lost some weight since I started using this food. She was never fat, but I didn't want her gaining additional weight. At the last checkup, our vet seemed very pleased with their weight and their overall health.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My cats loved the old Hills products, will not eat the new. I combined some of the old Hills dry cat food products with the new to get my cats used to the change. They still love their old Hills, but will not eat the new. I'm hoping they will adjust with time. Has anyone else had this experience?
