My cat of 13
| sangitap3

My cat of 13 years was having olive green bilious Vomiting. Multiple vet visits resulted in no definitive diagnosis. She would eat tuna from a can and baked chicken but only small amounts. Tried various brands of cat food with little success. Stumbled on this at Pets plus and bought the kitten food as the kibble was smaller. My cat loved it. Still occasionally has emesis, but this seemed to calm her gut. Will be buying more of this kitten food for her. She also liked the seafood fancy feast kibble in the green and white bag, the purina proplan complete chicken flavor with probiotics , and grain free American journey duck flavor.
