This was my primary dry food prior to the recalls.  I'm still using some of the dry Indoor Cat Food as a trade off from the usual dry I now use.  My change was due more to wanting a higher protein food for the cats than any problem. 

I also used the canned food which my cats liked a lot.   If I recall correctly, their food was supposed to be grain/gluten free but the manufacturer was adding it without their knowledge.  I don't believe that their were any reports of illness before they pulled the food. I never had any problems with it and when they find somewhere else to manufacturer it, I will use it again.

I keep forgetting this - I'm in Chicago , IL.

We tried the the chicken formula of dry Blue Buffalo because it didn't contain wheat, corn or soy. They call it Blue Spa Select.
The kibbles were so small that my Bengal had trouble picking them off his dish, he gave up.  He's a medium size cat that eats
his food delicately. My Maine Coon swallowed them whole and then vomited. I didn't like the odor of the kibbles.  Each cat
gets only a tablespoon of kibbles. They are on a predominantly wet diet, 50% home-cooked. I offered them the canned Blue
Spa, they wouldn't touch it... that was more than a year ago.

Its always interesting that different cats can have such different reactions to the same food.  My cats never got sick on BB wet and have no problems with the small kibbbles (Innova EVA kibbles which I also use are even smaller). 

I just received an email from BB that they expect their wet food back in the stores sometime in October - I wonder who will be manufacturing it?  I'll certainly want to know that before I give it another try.

   I recently purchased the new versions of the Blue Spa Select canned cat food. No one would touch the beef flavor but the Tender Turkey and Chicken was a thumbs up from my two that eat canned. One thing I noticed about the canned turkey and chicken is that it smells really good! Have only been feeding it for a short time, but so far no problems.

There is a problem with the 2.5# bag of Blue Buffalo's new "Wilderness" dry cat food I purchased that I thought others should be aware of. I have discovered that several of the kibble pieces throughout the bag have what looks like hard plastic thread sticking out of them! One piece I found today even had this thread-looking object sticking all the way through the kibble with about 1/8 inch of the thread sticking out on both sides! I emailed the company about the problem via their website's "Contact Us" link and am awaiting their response. I have asked them for an address and contact name to send some of the weird looking kibble to them for examination.

I'm in OK.

catzpj - definitely follow through on sending in a sample.  Make sure you keep some
for future use. Others have had similar finds in different brands.  Maybe someone else
on the forums knows where you might send more samples - maybe the Department of
Agriculture in Oklahoma?

My cats ate Blue Buffalo Spa Select Lite dry.  I switched them over slowly 10% every 3 days until eating 100% Blue Buffalo Spa Select.  My cats battled loose stools regularly the entire time they ate this food.  White long hair cats + loose stools = YUCKY MESS

about 1.5 year ago moved my 11 year old male cat from IAMS to brands that contained high protein, low carb and as grain free as possible.  This seems to be the one that he likes.  He has lost a SIGNIFICANT amount of weight which he needed.  His coat glows, he is loving, talkative and seems perkier.  I think we will stick with this brand for a while.  Too bad our 15 year old female won't eat dry.

None of my crew would eat the Blue Organics kibble- so strays & possums ate it.
We're at the end of the 4lb bag Blue Wilderness kibble  - all 5 liked that one.

I have not tried the Organics, but used the Spa Select with Kallisto & Angelus without problems. The only reason I stopped is when I was trying to find no grain food for Angelus. Will probably put this back in rotation for Kallisto.

Anyone have experience with Blue Buffalo canned? We now have a PetSmart in town and they stock this. There's no fish in some of the formulas and thought it might be OK for mine as an addition to Wellness.
