I purchase this food based on price comparison with the other dry foods and it usually if not always is the cheapest. I feed fixed stray cats and the food is better than nothing or an occasional mouse. Many foods out there that sell for many more dollars and IMHO probably cost more because they offer more in the way of ingredients. Gotta do you due diligence if this is your personal cat that you care about. Have found that even a fixed stray has a different "take" on different foods--I find their enthusiasm for Kibble is not as strong as it might be for other more expensive brands.

The label says it has 40% protein. However, the first 3 ingredients are ground yellow corn, corn gluten and soybean meal. We feed this product to our wild birds. They love it! Personally, if I owned a cat (and I used to own several in past decades), I would never feed it any kind of dry food. I would only feed my cat fresh meat, since a cat is an obligate carnivore and not an omnivore which is what a dog is. Raw chicken would be my first choice. Don't cook the meat as cooking destroys taurine (an amino acid) which cats must have in their diets.
There is now an ingredient list on the Walmart site. The first two ingredients are corn products, followed by meat meal, soy meal, fat and meat meal that says what animal it comes from.
