The Older Cat

This food is great for my kitty. She has digestive issues with other foods but does well with this brand. But the 10 lb bag is too much for one cat. She lost interest as we got halfway through the bag. I ended up throwing away quite alot. am trying alternate storage with second bag, but would rather buy smaller amounts. If you have more than one cat, this would likely not be an issue.
