Is Meow Mix Good Cat Food? | Yahoo Answers
Meow Mix Cat Food is like junk food for cats as it tastes good but has little nutritional value. With inferior ingredients at the top of the list as well as the addition of artificial colors and controversial brewer’s yeast, we have no choice but to give this cat food a low rating.
I would rate the Original Meow Mix Cat food as a good overall food for your cat. It has a good smell that is not over powering, (and doesn't give your cat, cat food breath!) has a variety of easy to eat shapes, it also has a variety of flavors mixed in.
Quality of Ingredients
The ingredients were pretty well printed on the package, starting with the meat products first, then going down the line for most to least. It had a good ratio of proteins and fats with little sugars, or additives mixed it. The only thing that would be a draw back to me is the bright food colors used in the food. It may cause an issue with pets that have food coloring additives allergens. Our cat that we have eats it every day and loves it!
There is a variety of flavors and we picked the original food for our kitty as I don't know how he would react to the other flavored foods. We may try them with him over a gradual switch over tot he other Meow Mix Flavors, but for now the Original is a hit!

The fact that this ingredient comes from a named source (chicken versus “poultry”) is good, but by-product meals are generally not considered a high-quality ingredient. Chicken by-product meal is made from rendered chicken carcasses and includes bone, offal, and undeveloped eggs as well as some feathers. This ingredient does contain high levels of protein but its quality can vary greatly from one batch to another – it would be much better to see either fresh chicken or chicken meal as the primary source of protein for this Meow Mix Indoor Health Dry Cat Food formula.My 4 cats all love Meow Mix cat food. They eat it every day all year long without any issues due to allergies from the food so you should be in good hands by using the Meow Mix for your kitties so I recommend it for the price and how the cats love it.
