Just wondering if anyone has tried this food yet and what are your thoughts on the ingredients.
It does not contain corn or wheat, but has soy, rice, barley and oats.
http://www.purinaonebeyond.com/about/products/cat-chicken-and-whole-oat.aspx

I only feed dry to the garage cats for their overnight meal and am always on the lookout for something less costly, but still nutritious. I currently feed them California Natural Chicken and Brown Rice, but this new Purina Beyond is about half the price.

Any thoughts?

The protein is still higher in Cal Nat (36%) and I really don't like the soybean meal and soy protein isolate which, I'm sure, come from China. I also don't like that they added coloring -- what for, unnamed animal fat and fish oil, natural flavour might be MSG or similar yeast extract and menadione (synthetic vit K). But, that's just me. Maybe there's another product that is somewhere in between those two. I always figure that cats that live outside need even better nutrition than the ones that live inside because they have to contend with the elements and need more energy and nutrients to stay healthy. Still, if you can't afford what you're doing now, less expensive food is better than no food at all.

Thanks bug, that's the kind of input I was wanting. I'm not very well versed in ingredients and where they might come from, so I really appreciate your comments.
I should add that my garage cats are like house cats, except they live in the garage. I only let them outside when I am outside and they come back to the garage when I call them.  Grin
The garage is heated and they have a comfy chair and beds in which they sleep and a window to look out and watch the birds. My intentions were to incorporate them into the house with my other three, but it hasn't gone as I had hoped. Anyway they are kept warm, dry and have plenty to eat.

I am glad for your thoughts on the Purina. My gut told me it wouldn't be a good choice, but I like to check things out and I trust everyone's opinions on this site. I can stick with the Cal. Natural, like I said they eat very little dry, I just use it for their overnight feeding, so even the small bag lasts me awhile.
Now the cost of the canned Wellness...well, I should have bought stock.  Wink

I did buy a bag, but haven't opened it . I had a $2 coupon & a $5 dollar purina coupon ,so it was only $.99, I have a friend with ferals outside & a Bil. I thought even though I don't like the ingredients much it would be ok added to a better food for stretching feeding the outdoors cats for that price.

Snowshoes,  Your garage cats are lucky to be inside in a heated  garage considering the weather this winter.  I used to have a couple cats in my heated garage where I used to live.  I put in a nice window so they could look out and see the birds too.
Your kitties have a nice chair and beddies, and food, and someday you may realize your plan of mixing them in with your others.  In the meantime, they are warm and safe and not hungry.  Have you put their photos on Itchmo yet? I haven't been here as often lately, and  haven't noticed.

I don't remember if I ever posted any of my cats pictures on here or not, other than my little avatar picture.
That's something I'll have to do.
