Who You Calling Senior? #ChewyInfluencer

Who You Calling Senior? #ChewyInfluencer

When TW first opened up this month's #ChewyInfluencer box, I thought she'd mistakenly requested food for HHGutt. As I saw it, the bag read SEÑOR cat food thus it had to be for my Méxican amigo Señor HHGutt. What the heck was that about? Now we're feeding the stuffies too? But then my worst fears were realized.

Yes, it actually said SENIOR cat food, not Señor. She wasn't thinking of feeding an active 11-year-old Spring Chicken of a cat such as myself senior food, was she? Apparently she was. I was ok with the Petcurean Now Fresh Grain-Free Senior Weight Management Recipe Dry Cat Food once TW read me the line that said for cats seven and older. I could live with that but about the weight management line—I'm a lean, mean biting machine. I do NOT need a diet. I did gain seven-tenths of a pound in the past year but even Dr. D. said I wear it well. I guess I'll have to try it before I pass judgment.

I've never had Petcurean but I like most kinds of kibble, so I was very innerested when TW poured some into my dish. Lemme mention here that the only time you'll see more than a ration of dry food in my dish is for photo shoots and reviews. The first thing that sold me on this food was how tiny the kibbles were. I guess they think that senior cats don't have any teeth left but in my case, I'm just too lazy to chew. Small is good.

You can see I'm talking in the image above. I'm trying to tell TW to shut her trap. She's not too discerning about what she puts into her mouth but wants the best for me. Now Fresh contains 100% fresh turkey, salmon and duck and 100% fresh omega 3 & 6 oils from coconuts and canola. In fact, Petcurean sez it's "so fresh, it’s like eating off the kitchen counter!" That's definitely a plus as is what it doesn't contain: grains, gluten, wheat, beef, corn, soy, rendered meats, by-products or artificial preservatives. TW was upset cos this food does contain fruits and veggies such as peas, spinach, cranberries, pumpkin, blackberries, alfalfa sprouts, kelp, lentils and carrots, which are hard for a senior cat's kidneys to digest. Still this food is better for your cat than many of the other kibbles that are out there taking up space on your supermarket's shelves.

If you're not quite a senior—or señor—you can try the other Now Fresh kibble recipes: Grain-Free Adult, Grain-Free Adult Fish or Grain-Free Kitten. Please note all recipes contain salmon. It's on sale right now at Chewy.com so try it, you'll like it. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to turn my back on you and finish my kibble before TW takes it away. I don't know about you, but I want to try eating off the kitchen counter.

Remember: to keep your cat healthy, do NOT feed a diet consisting of kibble alone. Kibble should be used as a appetizer for a high-quality wet cat food

  1. Binga and Boodie just get raw and canned food, the same as I get, even though they are both seniors and then some! Except sometimes they get extra to help them keep their weight on.

  4. My cat isn't a senior yet, but it's good to know that there are good options for older cats - not that I'm calling you old. You're just a cat with a vast experience :)

  7. Well CK glad you enjoyed it. Mommy won't even let me near kibble these days. We did see another review fur this food altho' we don't think it was da senior variety and altho da grains are missin' it was full of starch and sugars, and veggies too. We are so with TW and wish these food companies would get with da purrogram and make foods dat are really appropriate fur us kitties.

    Luv ya'

  8. Oh yes, I get labeled a senior, too. Grrrrr. My feline sisters take your advice and only get a tiny bit of kibble a day - though they occasionally do complain about this.

  9. My cats loved the one we tried and it was small pieces too. We should have had tried the senior too as almost all my cats are considered seniors.Nice review.

  10. You're not old, CK, you're just very wise. Regardless, I'm glad you enjoyed this food. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it!

  11. You a senior? You look as young and beautiful as ever. I asked my mum if I was a senior and she told me I am classed as geriatric. I don't think I like that! Thank you for your visit and telling me you will wait for me to get better.

  14. That sounds like tasty food, CK. We get some dry food mixed in with our canned food.

  15. There's nothing like the crunch of tasty kibble. Those little pieces look kitty friendly. None of my cats have ever been fond of large kibbles.

  18. I'm glad you liked your kibble treat, CK. I bet my Olive would like that too, but she's not a señor, I mean senior kitty yet. We only feed it as an appetizer too.

  19. Excellent review CK. I have no idea why these dumb peeps keep saying a senior starts at age 7....what the cwap! I'm 7 and I'm no senior. I jump a 6 ft fence every day and am out there guarding our property , toiling in the garden with hoe and shovel.....ok, ok, my hoe and shovel are my claws but they do two chores at once. So these weird peeps need a sharp lesson in age.
