shape of the food could be improved?
The shape of the dry good makes it difficult for flat face cats such as Exotic difficult to eat.

2/2 Senior Cats Approve
Our two senior cats can be picky about their food, but they both love the Now Fresh Senior. They eat this in addition to their wet food (moisture is so important for seniors!) and have done wonderfully with controlling their weight.

Great for weight loss too!
This stuff is amazing! I've had my cat on it for about 6 months and I've seen a huge change. She's not actually a senior but my pet food store recommended it for a good weight loss option that still has all the proper nutrients. Nothing has ever worked this well before! She loves it and is almost unrecognizable now! She's so much healthier and energetic. The only downside is that now she's able to climb on EVERYTHING! I swear she's going to knock the fridge over.

Magic in a Bag for Happy Kitties
What an absolute life saver. I have two senior cats with very different needs, one has bad digestion and weight issues, the other has severe allergic dermatitis. I have tried every brand under the sun and nothing compares to this formula. Both of my cats are so happy, their skin and coats are so soft, their poops are solid, and my fat kitty has already lost a noticible amount of weight after only 2 months. I cannot say enough good things about this product, and the incredible care they put into the ingredients. You have a lifelong customer in me!

Try instead of diet food
We (and our cat) are very happy with this food. Stormy is enjoying the food and we are happy to see a less round cat. As he is only 5 years old we were looking for a "new food" /diet food. It was suggested that we try senior NOW. We are happy with results and that we can continue to support a Canadian business.

The Perfect Food
My very finicky senior cat loves his NOW FRESH. I wanted to stay away from US companies due to questions about pet food labeling . I intensely researched premium grain free products and found Petcurean. I am 100% satisfied with the results. The smaller kibble is just right for him. He often prefers his Now Fresh over canned food. After several months I have a very healthy, happy senior feline with a very shiny coat. I would not hesitate to recommend their products. I know you won't be disappointed!

Gave the cat some Now Fresh. Dog liked it because the cat stayed in one place long enough to be caught!

Great for picky, picky cats
My husband and I won free bags of Petcurean food from our local pet food place when it opened, and it was the first time our cats tried Now Fresh. Our then 16-year-old cat siamese cross Buddy, always a fussy and finicky eater, surprised us by absolutely loving the new food - previously he would only touch a couple kinds of low-quality cat food. Within a month or so, we noticed that his fur was shinier and softer, and also had more energy. His hairball issue also subsided. His weight issue has pretty much gone away (he used to be a bit chubby from laziness) with his better energy levels . When we took him for a vet checkup last month, the vet said he was one of the healthiest 18-year-old cats he'd ever seen. We appreciate Now Fresh's high quality food (and Buddy of course does too) and the fact that it's a local product. Highly recommended!

No More Picky Eaters!
My two cats have been with me for ages and have been very picky eaters over the years. I've had to recently change their diets for something more nutritious and healthier for them as they are getting older and food isn't digested as well. It's been a long hard road in that endeavor to find something good for them that they would actually eat! I recently had the chance to try out some of your NOW FRESH Premium cat food. I was thrilled that that they both took to it immediately and I might be imagining things, but it looks to me like they both have more energy!

Great for a whiny, picky older cat
My fiance's family has the whiniest, grumpiest, angriest older cat that I have ever met. She hates almost everyone, and hates almost everything (if you've never seen a cat destroy a toy in ten seconds or less, it is a sight to behold). As such, she typically snubs her food in exchange for the daily hunt, and usually only eats her food if she can't find anything outside all day long. And then it's only a begrudging eating of the food. "Well, if I starve instead of eating this, I suppose that might be just a little worse than having to eat this." But then came this, a higher quality cat food, and she actually ate it up! No longer is she angry every morning after having not eaten all night, just waiting for the outside, she's actually eaten food overnight (she's always had access to a food dish that provides as much food as she wants to eat). As such, she's more open to human interaction in the mornings, and less angry all the time. It's hard to believe that food could do that, but I suppose I've seen enough "hangry" humans to acknowledge it may happen to cats too.
