Now Fresh Grain-Free Adult Recipe Dry Cat Food provides the special nutrients and proteins that cats of a mature nature, like myself, need. According to the Chewy.com website, NEW FRESH provides
- Grain and gluten-free recipe
- Balanced proteins and fats to promote an active lifestyle
- Omega oils to promote skin and coat health
- Pre and probiotics to support healthy digestion
- Added taurine to support vision and heart function
- Antioxidants to support increased immunity
This is all well and good but what does it mean ingredient-wise? Well the antioxidants can be found in berries, fruits and veggies such as peas, spinach, cranberries, pumpkin, blackberries, alfalfa sprouts, kelp, lentils and carrots. Antioxidants are important because they boost the body's natural immune system. It keeps me healthy and moving - two important things for an older feline such as myself.
The protein comes from 100% fresh turkey, salmon and duck - no byproducts or "meal" to fluff up the protein count without really adding to the nutrition of the food.
Finally, coconut and canola oils contribute Omega 3 and Omega 6 which are important to maintaining a healthy coat and strong joints.
But, FURiends, the proof of all this is in the food itself. Is it tasty so finicky ME won't reject it after 2 days? Is it easy to serve and easy to eat? Does it digest well (poop test, ahem)? Does it improve the overall appearance of the pet?
Mostly - DOES IT TASTE GOOD AND KEEP ME SATISFIED UNTIL MY NEXT MEAL?
Well, YES, it most certainly did and does. I love the texture of the small round kibble bits. They are easy to scoop out and eat (my patented method for eating). They stay sufficiently fresh over the course of my morning so that I do not HAVE to finish my meal in one sitting. I do admit I am downstairs at the stroke of 5pm for my evening meal, but not before as I have in the past. And according to the humans cleaning my facilities, it passes the poop test for whatever those silly humans are looking for! I don't GET that one at all.
I may still walk a little slower and I still don't jump as well as when I was a kitten, but I DO think it has helped loosen up the stiffness a little. And my FUR is amazing! I honestly look 5 years younger because the color and shine make my coat vibrant and healthy.
So if you are an older FELINE, I suggest you try the NOW FRESH senior formula. It is a quality product and will really contribute to your overall sense of well-being. I hear there is a WEIGHT MANAGEMENT formula as well for those of us (NOT me) who tend to the pudgy.
