When cats roamed the earth they hunted for their meals in the wild, pursuing the nutritional balance they crave. Natural Balance® has created Natural Balance ALPHA Cat Chicken, Turkey & Duck Formula: a grain-free blend of multiple, high quality proteins, fruits and vegetables. We’ve balanced your cat’s nutritional needs with a formula that goes back to the grain-free benefits of the wild. Natural Balance ALPHA Cat Chicken, Turkey & Duck Formula is complete and balanced for all breeds, from kittens to adults. MODERATE PROTEIN LEVELS: We use a unique combination of proteins combined with the novel source of garbanzo beans to provide a balanced diet for your cat’s overall well-being. COMPLETELY GRAIN FREE: Grain-free carbohydrate sources, like sweet potatoes, provide the energy your cat needs to thrive in their natural form. HEALTHY DIGESTION: PREBIOTICS: Prebiotics feed the beneficial bacteria that reside in a healthy digestive tract so that your cat can maintain optimal digestion. UNIQUE: FRUITS & VEGGIES: In addition to the legume garbanzo beans - an excellent source of fiber and protein - we have also added pumpkin, cranberries and blueberries to help your cat achieve a harmonious balance that is both healthy and delicious. We’ve also added garden greens to satisfy their green cravings.

- No complaints here! Review by BootsTheCatsDad

Going grain-free with Boots was an easy decision – he’s our family cat and my daughters and I love him. I wanted the best for him and I’m all for grain-free cat food – BUT finding one he would like was a whole nother story. He’s a picky guy – we went through a few brands before finding Natural Balance Alpha. Instead of eating a few pieces then leaving most of it (what he used to do) he now eats it all. I have also noticed since switching to this brand that the brown tears under his eyes have gone away – he generally looks healthier and a little leaner. No complaints here – Alpha is a wonderful grain-free cat food.
