    I fed them Eagle Pack. I didn't have them for very long after switching them to Eagle Pack but I did notice a huge difference in their coats. Before that I fed them Iams.

    i feed my cats the innova evo for dogs. been feeding it ever since it came on the market (october 2004 i think?) and they are doing awesome on it. before that they had been eating regular innova cat food.

    my observations are less shedding and the overweight ones have lost weight while the skinny ones have developed a much better muscle tone.

    So cats can eat dog food but dogs shouldn't eat cat food?

    generally speaking, dog food is not appropriate for cats. it usually doesn't contain enough protein and taurine. evo is different tho, and it is the only dog food i'd even consider feeding to my cats.

    i wouldn't even have thought of it if it hadn't been for a natura rep who told me he was feeding it to his own cats.

    Our cat's are on medicated stuff b/c one of my cats, Figgy (male), had problems with his bladder and he had crystaly so he always tells us.He is a good cat, and he only pees on the bed when he is sick, (how convenient) , and Tiggy eats it, too, and when we run out we put them on Dad's Brand Cat food, shaped like stars and is chicken flavor, and then we get medication medicine as soon as we can.

    I was feeding Innova for cats but just as other here have mention they now have Evo for cats and I bought my first bag this week. He loves it better then the regular Innova. I'm trying to mix the old with Evo and he just picks out the Evo and leaves the old food.

    i have 5 large cats to feed (my biggest guy is 17 lbs), and the cost of the evo cat food is higher than i'm willing to pay. my store charges $45 for a 15.4 lb bag, totally ridiculous considering that it isn't that much of a step up from the evo dog food, which (at $43 or so for a 28.6 lb bag) ends up costing me less than the regular innova cat food.

    i was literally holding my breath for the evo cat food to come out ever since i started feeding my cats the evo dog, and i got them a bag when it finally was available, but the difference in quality doesn't justify the difference in price. just my opinion. :)

    Oh Mordy, you have big ones too! I have 2 maine coons (one 17 lbs. and the other 20 lbs.)!

    Tiny has had a low immune system ever since he was a kitten and just came back out of the animal hospital after having a 104 temp. last week. He's our special boy.

    Do you think the EVO would be better than the regular Innova I'm feeding?

    barb, you'd really have to try to see the results. i can honestly say my guys do better on the grain-free food.
