It grew on her

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My old girl is SO picky. She eats this up!! I was so happy to see that. She has never eaten a food so quickly, and it makes this catmama happy. I wish it were cheaper, but if it's good quality and she'll actually eat it, it's a price I'm willing to pay! She also tends to throw up after trying new foods, but after multiple feedings this has not been an issue with this food.

We're suppose to mix this with their old food?

I followed instructions on changing their diet by gradually introducing them to this. That lasted approximately 12 hours. They tore this up with their dry food. I woke up (at 4 am) this morning to a can clinking on my kitchen tile floor. Yep, the zip lock bag was torn into and what residual that was in the can was actively pursued by Simba. Callie was staring at me with a satisfied look on her face licking her chops. I'm storing this stuff in the cabinet where they can't open it. I might need to consider locks.... Are there any controlled substances in this?

Handy to have on hand

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We tried this product after my cat had a couple of teeth pulled. She needed to switch to wet food for a while. She ate it up the first few feedings, but never really finishes. We always keep a few cans on hand.

Cat Approved

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a senior cat of 13 years old. He struggles with staying hydrated. Our vet recommended that I start feeding him soft food and food that would not only provide the additional liquids but also a product that would provide the additional nutrients that an aging cat needs. One of my fears was that I would have two things happen: the horrible smell of wet food and the additional smelly litter clean ups. I am pleasantly surprised that neither happened. The smell does not overwhelm me but my cat can smell it instantly and comes running. The litterbox cleaning was also no more than prior to starting on wet food. This canned food for older cats did not disappoint! My cat absolutely loves it. His fur is so much softer now and I can see a difference in his playfulness! Friskie (my cats name) is back to living up to his name. I will definitely buy again.

Great to hear, thank you for the review

Cat loved it

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I offered this to my senior cat as a supplement to his dry food, and I believe we created a monster. He absolutely loves this stuff and meows I’m the kitchen at feedings time if we aren’t fast enough to dish him up.

Easy to enjoy!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My cat just eats this wet food like he's in love with the taste! Devours it easily and slurps up every last drip of the dedadent gravy goodness. After a week or two of feeding my kitty a can a day, I've noticed he doesn't have any troubles digesting the wet food and no throwing up either so evidently it doesn't give him an upset stomach which is great!

Easy to open!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The can was easy to open and the food was appetizing. My cat liked the gravy and the size of the pieces were easy for her to eat. Upon looking for this in store it is rather pricey and I am not sure it is worth the cost

Cats loved it!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] To start with the good, my cats absolutely loved this food. I split the first can I opened between the two of them and it was gone in a matter of minutes. After they finished they were looking for more. My old guy prefers the wet foods with chunks of meat in them as opposed to the pate style wet foods, and the thinner slices of this food were easier for him to consume. Now to the bad....this food made my old guy super gassy. He was popping little toots off left and right for about a day and a half, and that was with only half a can of food. My guy does tend to have a sensitive system, so I'm not saying it will have the same effect on all cats, but this was the first time I've ever run into this problem giving him a wet food before. He absolutely loved this food though, so I'll deal with the gas to make him happy, but it's only about a once a month food because I can't deal with that level of gassy more often than that.

They liked it

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very easy to prepare and apparently quite yummy because my older cats enjoyed eating this up. Good enough amount in the can and I really like that it's for aging cats because two of mine are over 10 years old and I'm quite picky about what I give to them because I want to make sure they'll be able to handle it and not have any sensitivities to it. I plan on buying more of this soon!

I wish my cat liked this!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wanted to see if Royal Canin Aging 12+ would be a good fit with my cat. He is 14 years old and I thought he could use more vitamins and nutrients in his food. I tried everything I could to entice my cat to try and eat it and he wouldn't. That doesn't mean your cat won't like it.
