by Kittymama It does what it says! I have two adorable calico sisters who will be two years old July 25th. Jinxy is your original gorgeous white, orange, and black calico while her sister, Gypsy is a beautiful Tortoiseshell. Jinxy is built with "big bones" while her sister has a delicate frame. They both had been neutered before we adopted them from a local rescue. When we got them they didn't have the saggy belly that comes from being neutered. Since my last cat, Tinkerbell, had disappeared, I kept them as strictly indoor cats. Since my previous cat went outdoors and climbed trees and all kinds of fun cat stuff (bonus she was immune to getting fleas), I was not accustomed to cats getting fat so easily. I tried indoor formulas, but they still maintained their weight. I was browsing around for something new that might help and came across this one. I have bought two or three of the big bags (16lbs I think) and it has made a difference. My Gypsy girl has a slender figure and my Jinxy pie has just the right amount of curvature for her frame. They have maintained their healthy weight. Their bellies do hang still but only because of their extra skin. We always have the food available for them since our days can get hectic sometimes and we are forgetful. I haven't looked into the wet food to see if they like it yet. They tend to like the gravy covered wet food and are quite picky in that department.

by KitKatsMommy Kit Kat Loves It I received a free 18 ounce sample of the PurinaONE Smartblend cat food in Chicken and Turkey flavors from Influenster and right away I knew my Kit Kat would love it. She immediately went to her bowl when we put it out for her. She likes food that's crunchy so that was a plus for her. She rarely finishes her food in one setting but she finished her whole bowl. Thank you Purina

by LaurelAveCatLady No More "Issues" I do a bit of TNR #Trap, Neuter, Return# with stray and feral cats and this summer I had an injured one whom I kept after taking care of her for so long. The "issue" was her stool. It was not diarrhea--she only went once daily-- but always too soft. I tried brand after brand with no luck. Every day, at litter cleaning time, the same...I finally started reading and comparing ingredients listed on labels. I knew cats require a lot of protein and that rice 'binds' so I tried Purina One's Chicken and Rice formula first, thinking the rice might do it. No such luck.So, although it has slightly less protein, I switched to Healthy metabolism--in part because she had also gained some weight and this one has less calories. Anyway, about three days later...SUCCESS! Although I have since switched to the Naturals formula, I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a cat who has similar "issues."The main reason I switched to Naturals is the cost. I have five indoor cats and a colony outside of seven to ten #depending on who shows up# and it can get rather costly. I also like the fact that Naturals has no additives.Nicely done, Purina! Now let's see the same or similar done for your other lines #Friskies, regular Purina Cat Chow, et al.#.

by Sandy61 All of my cats are benefitting I started using Purina One Healthy Metabolism for my three cats because they are all indoor-only and currently live in an apartment. Two are senior and one is age three, so I mix this with the Purina One Vibrant Maturity. My 15-year-old has maintained a normal weight, my 12-year-old has lost weight and is more active and almost normal weight, and my youngest is losing his paunch. They are all more active and are healthier than they were on any other food or combination.

by Dolly Shelter Pet I adopted my cat from the MHS on May 3rd,2013. I have had other cats all my life but my little Miriam, 2 years old has got to be the sweetest kitty I have ever had. She like everyone and loves to talk and play. She is very loveable and loves to play. She cuddles, purrs and just is so sweet. She goes to everyone and does not have any mean or nasty streak in her. She is the greatest and I am so thankful she was there for me to adopt.She tugged at my heart strings when I saw her and she still does that today. Love her

by CeeLee Quality food for the right price & great for young cats! I have three cats that are all 1-2. My vet recommended I switch my 9 month old kitten to adult food since by this point he was 14.5 lbs! They are all pretty big male cats but this food really made it easy for me to know what this product was doing for my neutured cats and seems to keep their weight down. I have been feeding them this for about 6 months and I love it and I'm really grateful to have Purina One come out with a product I know is good for my cat's health.

by Soly4 Finally Purina One has the formula for my boy! My boy Soly loves Purina One, so when I saw the metabolism dry cat food I grabbed a bag. Since he is a indoor neutered male he is getting the belly spread. I'm so glad he likes it and hopefully soon I will see it working in the weight area also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JamieP Healthy beautiful coats on all three long haired kitty's About 7 years ago I brought a cat home from a friend of mine from work. She's a long haired grey tiger calico named "Gismo". I asked my friend what she was feeding her and she said "just what ever was on sale. " I always feed my other cat "Spider's" Purina One so that's what I started feeding to "Gismo". With in 3 months both my kids and I all noticed that Gismo's coat had tripled in thickness and so much softer since we had got her. There's no question about it, I know it was the change in her diet to Purina One. After that I have never consided feeding my cats or dogs anything else. My other cat "Spiders" is now almost 16 years old and is still in excellent health, Gismo is 8 years old now and my new little boy "Desi" is about 3 years old. All of them are long haired with soft beautiful healthy coats. Over the years I have feed them different types of Purina One and they all always love it. I have finally settled on Healthy Metabolizm due to they're all getting slightly overweight. January 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Princessomega Even a picky cat loves it. I received a free sample from @Influenster of @PurinaONEcats food. I was a bit skeptical to try out the new food with our cat Plushenko because he has been quite picky about changing up the food that he's been eating.I went ahead with the #ONEswitch and was happily amazed that he scarfed the food up immediately. He even went as far as to pick out the other food he was originally eating and leaving it in his bowl only eating the Purina.It's helped a lot with his coat which had been shedding a lot lately. It's a lot silkier now and he is always meowing for more like its a snack food. May 30, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by anet54 Junk Food For Cats My cat loves this food. Unfortunately, it's junk food for cats. Of the first six ingredients, only ONE is a species-specific protein (turkey).The rest - CORN GLUTEN, POULTRY BY-PRODUCT MEAL, SOYBEAN MEAL, BREWERS RICE, CORN - are pure garbage for cats and have no business being in your pet's food.Having now found this out I'm going to have to wean him off this food and try to find a grain-free food that will be good for him and he will love.I've had some luck with Merrick's Purrfect Bistro (Salmon) Grain Free.Do your cat a favor and find a better (the best) food for him/her. Help him be healthy throughout his life. You'll save your kitty a lot of agony with fewer visits to the Vet, and you'll save your wallet the same. And don't be fooled by Veterinarian diets like Hills and Royal Canin. Again, the ingredient list is horrible.Purina needs to stop making junk food for cats and dogs. It's unconscionable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jax1 excellent and #1 score for my pet and I I received a complimentary sample of the Purina one brand cat food from influenster. I was skeptical at first since I have a very picky cat. His main food was friskies .. he's also weird he doesn't like any fish brands as well. So I opened this cat food for him to try well to my surprise he loved it! It has made his coat healthier, he's happier and is getting a tummy. I received a coupon for a free bag as well. I did not hesitate and cashed that baby in. He looks forward to his new food every morning and every evening. This product is excellent and would recommend it for anyone who has a picky eater. It changed my cats diet for the better and much healthier weight as well. Thank you for your excellent product! May 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by pretty86 Excellent choice, customer for life Healthy cat food which provided all needed nutrition and brought back her spunk and character which has been sorely missing.Her coat is now much more shiny and full, and I can tell that her confidence has returned.Use this product, people! After two years of a competitor's brand and seeing her health never reach where it should've been, I switched to this and won't ever go back! May 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Samm846 A vet tech's choice I am a Certified Veterinary Technician and have been feeding my cat this food for 1.5 years. He loves the taste and the variety of kibble shapes have helped his teeth stay fairly clean. His coat is smooth and shiny, unlike when he was eating Hill's Science Diet. He tends to over eat or beg for food but the Healthy Metabolism formula has kept his appetite in check. This food is a great value for the price and I don't plan on switching any time soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by joanstl My 3 cats like it. I have 3 cats and they all like this food. They are indoor cats so they don't get a lot of exercise. I started this food because one is overweight. Feeding this food, even a lesser amount, has not helped her lose weight, but the other 2 seem to be maintaining a normal weight.I've always used Purina products an trust their foods are good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tfpet Gives my cats energy. My cats were starting to put on weight and did not like the change to the original chicken and rice formula food. They have a lot more energy now but I haven't been using it enough to notice any weight loss. March 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by CarrieRo It works! I have two cats and one needs to lose weight while the other needs to gain. Big surprise, the big guy loves to eat. Both cats had previously been on Purina One (Salmon formula) and all of us were happy.The vet wanted the big guy to switch to a higher protein prescription diet for big bucks, but I found the healthy metabolism diet with a similar nutritional profile and it was the same price as the rest of the Purina One line. The transition was very easy since it was the same brand. He loves the new food. Since the other cat gets very similar food they are both good about staying at their own bowls.Six months later he is down from 13.9 to 12.3 lbs. Yes, he still begs for food, but he is energetic, playful and I've even noticed that his dandruff is much better. Hopefully he will be at the goal, 11lbs, at the next vet check. November 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by DSWV Great taste. Even better results! We have three rescue cats. One has been diagnosed with chronic digestive issues. We tried a wide array of cat foods in order to find one that all three would enjoy the taste of, while still addressing the needs of our guy with the stomach issues.No matter what we tried, we could not find a food that all three enjoyed and that actually seemed to help with digestive issues.We saw this particular blend of Purina One and gave it a try.Within 2 weeks of feeding this on a daily basis, our guy with the stomach issues was experiencing better results in the litter box. All three cats displayed a leaner silhouette as well! This is the first food that all three of our cats have enjoyed eating. Prior to this, they became disinterested in their dry food every few months.I would recommend this food to any one! February 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tina I have two cats. Went to the vet said my cats are overweight. My vet suggested Hills Science Diet but that is a bit expensive and I am not working right so collection unemployment. So I went to buy the new Purina and my cats eyes are better with the eye discharge, of course my other cat has to eat the one cats food because its in the same room. So far I dont see any cat not digesting the food, they like it but have not seen any weight changes as of yet. It has only been a few days so have to see how it goes with the food. If the weight does not change may change to Purina indoor advantage. But I will continue to use this product is very popular in the store right now, the shelves are empty so customers that buy the food must have cats they are a bit overweight. So thanks Purina I will let you know the outcome of the weight change as the daily feeding. February 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by MousersMom Great Food While at my vet's picking up supplies for my kitty, I overheard her recommending PurinaOne's new Healthy Metabolism food, saying that she had checked the ingredients and nutritional information and found it to be higher quality and more beneficial than quite a few of the higher priced or even prescription foods! My one cat is diabetic but refuses her prescription food. So I tried the Healthy Metabolism. Both cats love the dry food (I have not yet found a retailer that carries the wet, but when I do, I plan to get some!). And, both cats are doing great on it. I especially like that it has a very small kibble, which is easier for my older cat (aged 17+) to handle. Good quality product. June 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by treeguyus Changed Food Been Using For Years Our local store ran out of our favorite brand of food. We shopped for another and found Purina One Smart Blend Healthy Metabolism, I liked the high protein content over other cat foods. Our boys (both rescue cats) took to the food very easily after a week of gradually changing it. So far, what we have noticed, is the litter box odor is gone or so slight we can't even tell at all as compared to the other food. My wife pointed this out to me first. Secondly, we have noticed activity levels has increased a bit, Makes sense that higher protein levels will help lose or maintain weight. It worked for me when I wanted to drop a few pounds. In a few months I will revisit and do a updated review. We are very pleased so far with this product March 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by PitMixRescuer Has helped my overweight cat shed a few pounds! My tuxedo kitty, Figaro, has always struggled with his weight. He LOVES to eat! On every other "Healthy Weight" food, I would feed him the recommended amount only for him to gain weight, still be hungry, or BOTH! I would cut back the portions only to end up with a very loud and needy kitty! This food seems to keep him full and he enjoys the taste! He gets a can of the Healthy Metabolism food with a quarter cup of dry food at night, and half a cup of straight dry in the morning! This routine actually seems to help keep him trim and full and I don't get woken up by my hungry kitty alarm clock at 5 am anymore! Thank you Purina One! March 20, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sneezy210 Causes nightly sneezing fits Am sorry to report that every since I took my 3 cats ages 10,7 and 2 off of this product their nightly wet sneezing fits havestopped and I can sleep through the night again. Iams is no better and also induces their wet sneezing fits. I can see maybe one cat having allergy to whatever is in this product, but all 3 is more than coincidence. When I went to Advanced Nutritional Formula brand all the sneezing stopped, it does not have the grain contents of Purina and has other additional superior nutrients. Sorry I cannot recommend thisproduct for my own cats, others' cats may do very well on this food. January 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lobo3937 They all like it I have 4 cats ranging from 2 years to 19 years and they all enjoy the Healthy Metabolism food. The 2 year old female hogs the bowls but the other three are little gentlemen and wait for her to finish and they then do the same thing. Their coats are beautifully shiny and they are more energetic since they've been on it. I have been using Purina products since Peabody (the 19 yr. old) was a tiny kitten. I would never switch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by amillionshadesofgrey The right choice My two 7 year old tabbies had been eating Purina ONE SMARTBlend Sensitive systems for 2 years and was the only formula they would accept, last month the store was out of this formula and I decided to try Purina ONE SMARTBlend Healthy Metabolism and it is a winner! They love it! They seem happier, healthier and are having no issues digesting it. It is an excellent choice for your finicky feline. July 17, 2014
