Change is good both for itself and for marketing in a highly competitive product such as cat food. Human customers, at least, like to see something fresh.
Purina One was one of the earliest higher-end cat foods sold in supermarkets. Some years ago, Purina One developed the "smart blend" moniker for some of its products, but it has recently changed this name to "true instinct". For some time, Purina One was difficult to find in my supermarket and I thought the line was being discontinued or phased out. The brand was reinventing itself in face of stiff competition, it appears.It has returned with a vengeance in this new format. Other formulas of Purina One are called ideal weight (chicken) or grain free (a variety of flavors.) My supermarket stocks several varieties again where it competes with the more humble Friskies and Fancy Feast as well as with other brands.
This True Instinct Tuna was a hit with my kitty. She ate the full serving without looking up -- a true test of cat contentment. I have bought the food for her several times and always get a happy, greedy response. I don't recall her enjoying the "Smart Blend" version to this degree, but my understanding is that the formula remains the same. But the cat knows for sure.
The product is not grain free. My cat won't eat grain free foods, and I think their nutritional value is overstated when compared with formulas including grain. This product includes tuna as the number one ingredient after water followed by wheat gluten, liver, meat by-products, and chicken in the first five ingredients. The wheat gluten filler content may be high but the remaining four ingredients are good nutriments. Purina products are often scoffed at by critics of cat food, but I trust the product more than I trust trendier brands and kitty and I have had success with this tuna. She also enjoys the true instinct turkey but not to the same degree as the tuna.
I feed kitty a variety of fish products. She generally gets fish once a week, and I alternate this tuna with the Purina One Salmon and Trout -- also in new packaging and a new formula of Tender Ocean Fish from Hill's Science Diet among other fish products. She loves her weekly fish, including this tuna.
This is a good choice to explore for the fish portion of your cat's diet. It was fun to find this newly-revived Purina One blend and fun to write about it here.
