Hi Michelle. I used to feed my 2 Hoolies Royal Canin until it started making them ill, being sick and nasty poop.
They have James Wellbeloved grain free dry and Perfect Fit now. Also Felix AGAIL wet food


We were finding this also. I even spoke to Royal Canin about going over to their wet food (before we changed them to a dry diet) I asked them about nutrients and goodness of the food and they wasn't very helpful. We bought 'I think' about 10 boxes from Zooplus oh dear! They refused point blank to touch it. It looked worse than whiskas! I thought omg I've bought all this food! Silly me! But Zooplus didn't even quibble they took it back

The dry Hills food for sensitive tums is just great! We have 3 cats but oddly they will only eat out of 1 bowl!?! The 2nd bowl very occasionally but they are all fit and healthy (Esme a little too rounded)! So we can't be doing much wrong

On the Zooplus website the food we buy them has 10 reviews (11 inc ours) about it and they are all 5 stars

We feed Royal Canin, Hills and James Wellbeloved and ours love them but we do feed 4kgs a day across the ages from 20 to the terrible Bengal twins at 1 and find they love them all add in the 14 cans and 8 sachets for the oldies and Donnie diabetic we like them to have what they like and I am partial to beans on toast :)

Oh wow! 4kgs a day how many cats do you have? I did giggle at the 'bengal twins' you brave person (only joking)! Even though ours is a cross she's still very hard work.

Sorry, not sure if this is the right area to put this?

We used to feed our girls on Whiskas/Felix/Go cat but that was until our precious girl Muppet (RIP) got diabetes so we started to look into it a bit further and couldn't believe the amount of sugar etc and grains etc that cats can't digest (I think that's right)

So we moved over to Royal Canin Indoor 27 they were on this quite a while but Dorothy who has poor teeth started being sick a lot. We took her to the vets etc and they couldn't find a reason for this. On the drive home my husband mentioned the possible possibility that it could be that the biscuits were quite large and because of her teeth she wasn't chewing them she'd bring it back up again!

So, I started some research on zooplus and came across Hills Science Plan for sensitive tummies.

We purchased a small bag to try it and to say the change is remarkable is an understatement!! They go mad for them (we call them their peas) lol!

**can I just say that all changes to their diet has been done slowly and with the help of our vet**


It's not as cheap as Royal Canin and although we struggle financially everything we do is for them and they deserve the best! We just love our girls enormously (sad aren't we) lol
