New high protein/low carb dry food.  Both cats really liked sample.

UPDATE
I've been mixing Indigo Moon holistic in with Kumpi and Flint River Ranch for about 10 days now - both cats make a concerted effort to pick it out of their bowls.  They are both confirmed crunchers and midnight snackers, and have been eating some dry for 6 and 8 years respectivly.  They also share a 6oz can of Solid Gold Blended Tuna, Wellness Turkey & Salmon, or Merrick Ocean Breeze daily (1/2 can in am & pm).  Both are maintaining their normal weight.

Ingredents:  Chicken meal, potatoes, canola oil (preserved w/ mixed tocopherols), chicken, natural chicken flavor, salmon oil (a source of DHA), ocean fish meal, almond oil (preserved w/ mixed tocopherols), sesame oil (preserved w/ mixed tocopherols), yucca schidigera extract, thyme, blueberries, cranberries, carrots, broccoli, vitamins & minerals.

Guaranteed analysis:  crude protein, 46% min; crude fat, 20% min; crude fiber, 3% max; moisture, 10% max; ash 7.5% max; DHA, .05 min.  450 kcal/cup.

Just bought a small bag to try on my cats. Both LOVE it. I put a small amount out each day and it's gone within the hour. This will be their new regular dry food when their other food is gone.

Tried it, cats are eating it but not that enthusiastically compared to Orijen. Which is good, since Mitzie, my little piglet, was getting really fat on Orijen since they eat waaayyy to much of it.

Kibble pieces are quite small, sort of resembles Serengeti for which I wanted to find a replacement. If there are no problems by the time this bag is finished, I'll definitely get some more and keep it as a part of rotation (Orijen+Ziwipeak, Indigo Moon+Ziwipeak).

 I found a local pet store (Pet Supplies Plus) that was able to special order this food in for me. The last brand of dry grain free I was using, my middle cat Jinx would not eat much of. This food is much lower in carbs than the other grain free I was using also. Both cats seem to like it although I do not think they are happy about the very small size of the kibble. So far no problems.

Indigo Moon was the last dry kibble that I purchased during the plodding Slowsky type trip converting to only wet foods as meals...

Ling & Miss Kitty like it very much.

They each get a tablespoon as a late evening snack. I'd bet they're glad that it is small and more kibble pieces fit in the tablespoon that way  Tongue

Both cats have been doing well on this food.  I am in the process of eliminating the other two dry foods.  So far no complaints from Lincoln or Disco.  They are also sharing a 6oz can of Solid Gold blended Tuna, with steamed oragainc chicken shredded and mixed in, split into an am & pm treat.  Lincoln will eat EXACTLY half of the moist food, leave and wait for Disco to eat what she wants.  He goes back when she is done and finishes up the plate.  A true gentle giant!

This food is not available at my local Petco or PetsMart, so this may be why there are few comments on it to date.

I have found a piece of different kibble in the bag of Solid Gold Indigo Moon. regular Indigo Moon is small round kibble, this was bigger and lighter colourpiece with three protrusions, similar to regular Solid Gold. The expiry date is July 2008, and I bought it in Only Natural Pet Store.

The three pronged one is definitely significantly lighter than normal Indigo Moon kibble. Sorry I didn't take the picture, morning is not my best time of the day, I realized I should have taken photo only after I've thrown it away. Haven't seen any other shapes than light colour three pronged one, but that is enough, it shouldn; have been there!

Offy & alek0 - have you emailed Solid Gold about this?  My sister bought a bag of this last night after calling me needing a buying tip.  I emailed her later to watch for errant kibbles in the bag after reading this.  Her cats aren't very enthusiastic about the flavor.

Our dog eats Solid Gold, as it's something he's not allergic to, and I've never noticed anything like that in his kibble.

EricV2 - I think it's just happening in this particular flavor of their cat food.  No one has reported seeing this in other brands, so somehow other kibble must have gotten in with a batch of the indigo moon.

sharky - can you elaborate on your post about your sample, SG being sold, vet smiling & not carrying it anymore?  Is there a problem with the food or a new owner or something?  Just not understanding the post.

Didn't have time to deal with it this am.. will follow up on this evening...
MK & Ling have eaten a whole bag prior to this one and loved it (but it was a meal serving then).. all I have left of kibbles (which is now being used for treats) is about 1/4 bag Organix and this whole bag of Indigo Moon...
