    *Amounts are based on a standard 8 oz. dry measuring cup. This chart represents average recommended daily portions. You may need to feed slightly more or less, depending on your cat's activity level and overall fitness.

    Be sure to provide plenty of fresh, clean water daily. Close package tightly between feedings or store product in an airtight container to maintain freshness.

    Feeding Amounts: Most cats eat many times during the course of a single day. A recommended feeding schedule for an adult cat is to offer half the daily amount for breakfast and another half for dinner. Vary the amount fed according to age, size and activity level of your pet. Kittens and pregnant or lactating females should have food available throughout the day, so split their total daily amount into several meals. The total daily amount for kittens is approximately one-quarter to one and one-quarter cups. For lactating females, feed up to three times the amount shown for their non-pregnant weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food!! My 2 year old kitty, Morty is highly allergic to fish and grains, he literally tears out his hair and develops crusty, scaly patches. After trying many foods, I finally found success with this food. Thank you for saving my baby and his poor skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A blessing in a bag It has taken me a very long time to find a cat food that didn't have fish/biproducts in it. Simba is allergic to seafood and has become sick with literally every other food I have bought him... except yours. I bought a bag of your food and it has become a blessing for my little man. Thank you so much for creating something so amazing. Simba loves it, keeps it down and is not healthier than ever.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difference between "Natural" and "Real"? I'm looking to find a replacement food for my IBS kitty. The food (not a Rachel Ray food) she's now eating that has done well for her has been discontinued. I'm looking at Nutrish as a replacement, but there seems to be a difference between the "Real Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe" which doesn't seem to be available anymore, and the "Natural Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe". Can someone explain why the change? Has the "real" one been discontinued? These constant discontinued issues and formula changes makes it so difficult for those of us with "special needs" kitties where even a small formula change can cause a major problem. Please respond!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy food that my cats actually love!! My cats are indoor cats and usually only ate wet canned food. When Nutrish first came out I bought the small bag and they loved it. I have cut back a little on wet food because they all eat Nutrish. I have tried all 3 recipes chicken w/brown rice, salmon & the indoor recipe with lentils. I buy the big bags & try to get it on sale. I don't mind payin a little more for something they eat (never gets wasted) and because I know it much better for them!!! Look at the ingredient labels of other foods...if I wouldn't want to eat it, why would I expect them to??? Thanks for a really good product :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved our young kitty from IBS For nearly a year since we brought our cat home as a small kitten he has struggled with one of the worst cases of irritable bowel syndrome the vets had ever seen. We spend hundreds on medications and special diets but nothing worked at all and our poor little fella was sick and had lost control of his bowels and had to be kept away in an area where we could constantly clean. Our vet was afraid the condition would be permanent and his quality of life was not great and we were heartbroken for him. One day I ran out of the special veterinary food and he had to have something for that day so I grabbed a bag of Nutrish with chicken and brown rice. Later than night when I went to check on him (our cat's name is Mingus), I saw something I had never seen yet - perfect poo. He had his first normal bowel movement in his whole life and it was all thanks to this food. I cried. He's been a different cat ever since with so much energy and playfulness and his quality of life is now through the roof. He uses his box just fine now with no pain or struggle. I immediately called the vet and everyone was stunned. It was a small miracle in my own home and I can't tell you how much this meant to us. It changed all of our lives, thank you so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hidden treasures We have to keep any food we buy locked on the top shelf of a bedroom closet because the little thieves will shred the bag and eat until they explode. They have even started scratching the door to get in. NEVER with any other kind of food!
