NOW FRESH® - Sounds Good; Tastes Good

We know several people in the cat (and dog) world who prepare fresh food for their feline companions. Some people feed raw and some people prepare meals from scratch. I rarely cook for myself, much less for my cats. However, that doesn't mean I don't want to give my girls the freshest and healthiest food I can find that they will eat.

We shared information about Petcurean new line of cat food stews during our Catmas Wishes holiday series. We were impressed with the NOW FRESH® line of food from Petcurean, so Mom Paula made sure she met up with representatives from Petcurean when she attended Global Pet Expo in March.
Mom Paula shared the fact that we tend to leave any vegetables that are put in cat food and eat around them. The stews weren't our favorites, but we were impressed with a couple of the pate and minced recipes offered by NOW FRESH. 


Truffle and the NOW FRESH® cat food from Petcurean

NOW FRESH cat food is so fresh your cat may think she's eating from the kitchen counter! This food is made with 100% market-fresh meat or fish and includes 100% fresh Omega 3 and 6 oils from coconuts and canola. NOW FRESH contains no grains and is gluten-free. There are no rendered meats, by-products, added growth hormones, or artificial preservatives. NOW FRESH is available in kibble, stews, pates, or minced recipes. The three newest recipes are the Grain Free Cod Pate with Bone Broth, Grain Free Chicken Pate with Bone Broth, and the Grain Free Minced Chicken Recipe with Bone Broth Gravy.




We received the Minced Chicken Recipe and the Grain Free Pork Pate with Bone Broth to try. We'd never eaten pork before so Mom Paula was interested to see how we liked it. The Grain Free Pork Pate with Bone Broth is made with 100% fresh pork and salmon. Some of the features of the pork recipe are that the turkey bone broth is a source of collagen and is a meaty flavor your feline should love. I was pleasantly surprised how much both the girls enjoyed the pork pate. Their favorite recipe was the Grain Free Minced Chicken Recipe with Bone Broth Gravy. The minced chicken recipe is made with 100% fresh chicken and includes chicken bone broth as a source of collagen and a flavor your cats should love.

All NOW FRESH wet cat food recipes are packaged in a 6.4 oz Tetra Pak® carton that can be resealed and refrigerated for later use. The NOW FRESH wet food recipes can be served as a treat, a topper, or a complete and balanced food. NOW FRESH recommended feeding your cat 1 carton per 6-8 pounds of body weight per day. Truffle and Brulee only weigh about 7-8 pounds and I split one carton between the two of them and it was still too much. They don't eat much in one sitting, so I now split 1/2 of the carton between them. There are seven (7) recipes available in the NOW FRESH products: wild salmon stew with bone broth, grain free turkey stew with bone broth, wild salmon pate with bone broth, pork pate with bone broth, cod pate with bone broth, chicken pate with bone broth, and minced chicken with bone broth gravy. I'd be very interested to see if the girls liked the wild salmon and chicken pate. I don't feed them too much fish such as cod, but would be willing to feed it as a treat a few times a month.

As you can tell from the video above, both Truffle and Brulee LOVE the NOW FRESH wet food, especially the Grain Free Minced Chicken Recipe with Bone Broth Gravy. NOW FRESH is also available for dogs.

One of the things I was impressed with when I met with the representatives of Petcurean at Global Pet Expo was their willingness to talk with me about nutrition. I was able to meet with one of their nutrition assistants to talk about the special needs for Truffle and Brulee. Petcurean even has a "Nutrition Hotline"  to help pet parents find the food that is right for their felines, even if it isn't one of their own brands. That's impressive. Feeding your cat a fresh diet can help them maintain a healthy weight just like humans. 

Petcurean is available in specialty pet stores and you can find the store closest to you by clicking on their locator button (at the bottom of the page) by typing in your city or zip code. We found three retailers who were within 20 miles from our home. One of the retailers is a place where I purchase gluten-free food all the time. You can also purchase Petcurean cat food online through 1800Petmeds, Chewy.com, and Petflow. The NOW FRESH recipes are a little more expensive than some cat food you normally purchase, but since we can split each carton in half, it ends up being approximately the same price as other premium wet cat foods.

  7. I'd love to try these with my own cats - but Bear especially is a bit ... picky. In wet food, he doesn't like the same thing night after night - and the better the food is for him, the less he wants it. Still ... I'd love to make this work.

  8. My cat Jake loves Fancy Feast gravy lovers. Preferably fish flavored. He would probably love this food.

  9. My younger cat, Kotoha, eats just about anything. My Moko, however, is a senior and has hyperthyroidism and it's hard to find food she will eat. I've tried many types and so far she mostly eats chicken flavored, but will eat some others at times.

  12. You two ladies make this food look delicious! I think Manna and Dexter would love the minced Chicken variety. This food looks really meaty!

  13. Sounds like a great quality product, and I like the range and forms it comes in. I don't like cooking either, but I used to have to cook for Red at one point but that was such circumstances. No way would I bother now, but I'm definitely into feeding my animals a quality diet that sounds as good as homemade!

  18. It looks like Truffle and Brulee really like that food! I bet my sister's cat would too. He seems to like chunky food pretty well, but he's not too picky about texture right now.

  19. My kitties aren’t too picky. They’ve eaten anything I’ve given them. I try to stay away from too much seafood because I read too much can be bad. They get a lot of poultry and occasionally exotic proteins or beef.

  20. Does sound and look quite good. I'll leave the taste evaluation up to you :-)

  21. Sure sounds delish! And it looks like your furbabies really enjoyed it. Brulee and Truffle are so beautiful! Thanks for the great review!
