Cats rule at the Paws’ household. They are our soul-mats, and nothing is too good for them. We should re-phrase that and say, almost nothing is good enough for them, and we want to spoil them with lots of yummy gourmet food that’s keeps them healthy for many, many years to come.

When we heard about Hill’s Ideal Balance™ Crafted® line, we were thrilled because it offers slowly cooked food in small batches, tested by a team of highly trained Veterinary Nutritionists, to deliver the ultimate in nutrition for our cats. This is exactly what we’d do at the Paws’ household if we could make a home-made gourmet healthy meal for the kitties from our own oven every day.

Now, sad to say, if the cats had to rely on their ultra-busy humans for this specialty food, they’d probably get it a half-dozen times a year. Thanks to Hills Ideal Crafted, our feline family can feast upon these delectable flavors every day. The new line has dry cat food, canned cat food, and kitty treats.

At Paws for Reflection, we have happy with Hill’s Pet Nutrition products. They’ve been a staple in our feline family for over a decade. Our felines put the new Ideal Balance™ Crafted® to the test, and it won. They loved it.

The detail that has gone into the preparation is pretty amazing. It all begins with selecting high quality meats, wholesome vegetables and ancient grains, including ingredients like barley and chickpeas, to create unique, flavorful recipes. Then, all the ingredients are carefully mixed and added to the dough.

Another real plus, it is:

  • All natural ingredients with:
    • No wheat, corn or soy
    • No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
  • Available in grain-free varieties
  • And it’s made in the USA
  • Gently Cooked

    The dough is gently cooked at 250-300 degrees to lock in flavor and nutrition. It’s carefully cut into crispy, custom-shaped kibble that cat’s love. Years of taste research ensure each bite is as tasty as it can be. Texture and shape are every bit as important to finicky felines who are concerned about more than just nutrition, or even the ingredients. We all know cats can be very picky about what they like and don’t like. And it’s refreshing to hear the new Hill’s Ideal Balance™ Crafted® is the result of many years of Hill’s research into the importance of texture and shape when it comes to the palatability of food for cats.
