Special Kitty Starters (Walmart)

Standard Can Appearance, but There Are Other Flavors

Canned Kitten Food

Brand and Formula Name 

Special Kitty Starters

What I Like About this Product 

This is a kitten food that isn't bad for the fact that it's Wal-Mart's store brand. The first ingredient is animal product, not plant product or corn. The food also has more of the nutrients that kittens need than the regular Special Kitty.

What I Least Like About This Product 

Of course, this is by no means a premium product, so the ingredients and nutrition aren't as high quality as if you'd spend a lot more. But it works in a pinch, especially if you find yourself in financial dire straits.

How my Kittens(s) Reacted to This Product 

They love the taste! They think it's a treat and clamor for it.

My Review 

I've never had bad experiences with Special Kitty. Even though I've switched to a premium food in the last year, my cats always seemed to do all right on Special Kitty, even the dry adult food. I think the canned "Starters" is probably the most nutritious of the brand. If you've recently found yourself in the situation where you have to choose between buying premium cat food or buying food for yourself, this can be a decent compromise.

Would you recommend this to a friend?

I was unable to find the ingredients of this food. Next time I visit Walmart I'll take a look.
