Rated 1 out of 5 by ivegotbananas Bring Back Chicken and Rice
I am joining in with others who want the Chicken and Rice brought back. I've fed this to my cats for over 20 years, faithfully. Vet recommended also. The Chicken and Turkey appears to be tasty to cats introduced to Smart Blend, but not for cats that have been fed the Chicken and Rice for years. My cats also will not eat anything other then Chicken and Rice. We need your product development team to listen to us. We're not happy, our cats are quite hungry, and we have been put into a bind now. Happy cats eat Chicken and Rice!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MattDurham Please Bring Back Chicken and Rice
My 20lb cat has eaten Chicken and Rice exclusively for all of his 7 years, and in about a week, I think he's only taken one bite of the new Chicken and Turkey. We're going to have to start searching for another brand if they don't bring back Chicken and Rice, or at least modify the flavor so it matches the old product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MTcountrygal Bring back the Chicken and Rice Flavor
I have been feeding your Chicken and Rice Smartblend to my 2 cats for many years. Now that they have discontinued it, my cats are not very happy with the Chicken and Turkey. In fact, I may have to go to another brand of cat food because the one is a petite little cat anyhow, and now that she isn't eating that much of the hard cat food anymore I am starting to get worried. PLEASE bring it back!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Purrson Jake loves it!
I've been feeding Jake (almost 14yr Tonkinese# Purina One Chicken and rice for quite a while. He liked it but still looked for more variety. I had to have 2 different foods in 2 bowls so he could pick which he wanted. When Purina One changed to Chicken and Turkey he loved it. I couldn't keep the bowl full. He hardly eats the other food #Purina Naturals) now. He's always been a very active cat, regardless of age but now he seems even more active. I don't know if the "finicky bug" will hit, but right now this is a winner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by apickard3 My cats want their Chicken and Rice back please
My 11 year old cats have been eating Purina One Chicken and Rice their whole lives. I tried to change their food one time and it triggered IBS in one of them, so I immediately went back to Chicken and Rice and all was well.
I was upset to learn that Chicken and Rice has been discontinued and replaced with Chicken and Turkey. I've tried giving my cats the Chicken and Turkey but they will not accept it and repeatedly cry throughout the night wanting their old food; it is clear they are not eating the Chicken and Turkey. I'm so worried my cat's IBS will be triggered again because I have to change their food, but I guess I don't have a choice. I'm very disappointed with this product and I hope that my cat does not become ill again because he can no longer get his food.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tortugie Worried about this change
My 12 year old cat has been eating Chicken and Rice her whole life. 3 years ago she was diagnosed with kidney disease. First thing we tried was to change her diet! NO WAY! She will NOT eat ANYTHING but the chicken and rice. I've always said if purina stops making the chicken and rice she would die. Yesterday I went to the store and to my horror it was GONE!!! I just found out it is discontinued. I bought the chicken and turkey in hopes that she will eat it. However, it is also higher in protein which is not good for a cat with kidney disease. I'm going to try to find the chicken and rice still available and STOCK UP hoping to buy enough to last for the duration of her life. :-( I'm worried that after all these years, this switch in food will literally kill my sweet Pickles. We've been doing subcutaneous fluids at home daily for three years. She has been doing great and I'm just worried this will start her decline...oh, Purina one!!! I would give ANYTHING to have you continue with the good ol' chicken and rice....

Rated 2 out of 5 by NANCY WHY DID YOU CHANGE CHICKEN & RICE?
I have two cats, a male and female, both age 6 years. They have not been eating well since you changed the Purina One Chicken and Rice formula to Chicken and Turkey. They do not like the Turkey. Please consider bringing back Chicken and Rice. I don't want to search for a new brand.
