For this review, we will look at their Indoor chicken recipe. The first ingredient in this cat food is going to be chicken, which includes the meat, skin, and bone of the bird. Because the chicken is 70 percent moisture, it is going to be at the top of the ingredient list.

However, once it has been cooked, that moisture is going to be lost, as is some of its protein. This is supplemented with the second and third ingredients, chicken broth (for moisture, nutrients, and protein) and chicken liver.

The next two ingredients, carrots and sweet potatoes, are found in the food. The carrots are going to help maintain your cat’s digestive health, but also maintain healthy skin. The sweet potatoes in the food is a carbohydrate substitute and sometimes considered a filler – albeit a better option than your white potatoes.

What People Had To Say

When looking at what people had to say about the BLUE Freedom Grain Free Adult Dry Cat Food, we noticed that the majority of customers had great things to say about the cat food. Customers report that they had switched from their usual store bought food to this and within a few months, they noticed a dramatic improvement to the cat’s fur.

Several customers reported that it helps keeps their cat’s weight at a healthy level, thanks to the low calorie count of the food.

One customer reported that they adopted an ill cat from a shelter; it had a respiratory infection, dull and brittle fur, and the cat even seemed a little lethargic. Upon bringing the cat home and feeding the cat this food, they noticed a difference in her within a few days.

The cat had a healthy coat, the infection cleared up, and it was more playful and affectionate than it had before. The owners attribute this change to the high quality ingredients found in the food.

Unfortunately, not everyone was as impressed with this cat food and they left critical reviews of the product.

Of these critical reviews, the most common thing people were upset about was how expensive the food was – especially when their cat’s did not want to eat the food, even when it was mixed with their old food. Other customers have said that their cats began vomiting when eating the food.

One customer reported that when they gave this to their cats, one of the cats was allergic to the food, stating the cat would scratch their head until it bled. Another customer reported that they gave this food to their three cats and it caused health problems with each cat.

They went on to say each of the cat’s had hair loss and dullness, they had difficulty urinating, and they were irritable.
