I like how few ingredients the Simply Nourish food has because I'm really trying to limit potential allergens. I have a cat with suspected food allergies and I have to keep track of all the ingredients she's consuming so we can start a food trial. It's much easier to do with fewer ingredients.
My cat likes it so much, I've easily been able to hide her antihistamine pill in it and am confident that she'll eat it every time. My other cat is a dry food addict and is very picky about wet food, but she goes nuts for this stuff!
I was a little concerned about the potato, but the carbohydrate content of this food is reasonable. I'd rather see more healthy fat and less carbs.
One thing I do not like is how every can comes with a plastic lid. It seems pretty wasteful and unnecessary. I'd rather they leave that out and subtract it from the price, even if it's only pennies. We've gotten by fine with a total of 2 plastic can lids for the past 20 years, I definitely don't need a new one with every can.
I'd give it 5 stars if not for the plastic lids and more potato than I'd prefer. I'd like the price to be lower, but it's reasonable for the quality of the food.
I have some extremely picky cats. My one little princess cat Gabbi will only eat certain things. She loves cheap junk dry food, but gets sick when she eats it. This food is the only thing that she eats and stays healthy on. She is no longer bloated, is healthy and lean, and is no longer sensitive to touch. If it were more affordable I'd feed it to all my cats. Three big bummers: 1) there are no case discounts, 2) not available online 3) only one size, very small.
Great product, my three cats - two adults and one kitten, love it, especially the Tuna and Potato Stew! Please sell on line. My closest store is 8.7 miles away from home and very often they run low on product. I would love to buy on line with an auto delivery program. The packaging, while attactive, it is very wasteful and not eco friendly! Thank you for a GREAT product!
My cat would never touch any wet cat food, we tried this one and you can see the difference!! Huge chucks of tuna, chicken, salmon ( depending on the kind you buy ). My cat loves it I would recommend this for all cats, just because you can actually see what you are feeding your cat.
My Cats Really Seem to Love the Taste of this Food

I have an old cat who has had ongoing problems with poor appetite. My vet gave me medication to stimulate his appetite and I've tried every single canned food brand from the least expensive to the most expensive to keep him eating and in good weight. He turns his nose up to most of them, but he just absolutely loves this food. Actually all my cats do. It must be extremely tasty. They just go crazy for it. It's a relief to find something that my old cat really enjoys eating. I just wish it came in a larger can size. I would buy it by the case.
I had been feeding my cat a combination of Wellness and Blue Buffalo wet food. In all honesty I pick up whatever is cheapest at the time. And at $1.20-$1.40/can, it can get pricey.
My cat isn't a fan of pate. So sometimes when I get the more expensive brand, he will whine and look at me with pleading eyes to give him something else.
What's a mom to do? Try this new, less expensive brand that has the exact some ingredients in it. $1/can, I had to try it. I open the can (which has a lid...how awesome is that?) and it's literal SHREDS OF MEAT. My kitty stuck his fussy head right in it and inhaled the whole thing. Mommy pays less...kitty gets something that actually looks and tastes like food. Win-win.
I originally bought this food as "bribery" for my cats when I brought home a new dog. I wanted to give them a treat. I have four cats - all with varying tastes. This is the first food I have purchased that had them all licking the dish clean. The food looked yummy, smelled good and based on my cats' reactions, must have tasted great. Although a bit expensive, I will continue to buy this as a treat for my cats. It's always a bonus with all natural ingredients.
Our cat has digestive issues, and he has never had any issues on this food. He LOVES this food!! It has done wonders for him. His coat is beautiful, he is full of energy and no tummy issues!!!
My only gripe is that when we have gone to our two local Petsmarts, there are either very few (or in some cases no) cans left on the shelf...Petsmart is the only distributor of this food, since it's amde for them, so PLEASE sell it online. HOw can we, as consumers, get this product if there is very little on the shelves and then you can't buy it here????
I am thankful for this food. My cats love it. My two very choosey senior cats will actually eat it. They prefer the chicken mixed with tuna or salmon over the chicken stew or chicken & duck. My issue with the food is that it is a tiny serving with an exorbitant amount of wasteful packaging. The recommended serving is 3 cans per cat per day, so why would anyone need a lid?! Also the cardboard wrapping is a marketing tool, not a needed addition. I hope that they make the packaging more efficient. More coupons or sales would be nice also.
I have 2 cats with different tastes - one will like a certain food and the other will not. I currently feed them Fancy Feast (they both agree on with most flavors) but I always have them try products that are more "natural" in hopes to find one they both actually like....and they both really like this one. The ingredient list is real and it looks (to me) like it's packed with nutrition.
After opening the can, I was relieved to see it looks like human food - shredded chicken with carrots. I laughed at another reviewer who said you could probably put it on crackers for yourself. It's so true! They both scoffed it down this morning.
The packaging is nice but not economical or cost effective - each can comes with a plastic cover and an outer paper label. If I make the switch it would double my current monthly cat food costs. I'm not cheap by any means with my cats so I may just deal with it...it's important they get real ingredients and not ground up leftovers not fit for human consumption which I'm afraid a lot of canned food is made of.
I would have given it 5 stars but it's a small can and costs $1.10 per can. I actually wanted to give it 2 stars because of the cost. It's outsourced to Thailand so I'm surprised it's not cheaper. Or at least make the can bigger.
My cat likes the new Simply Nourish canned foods. She tends to leave the little bits of carrot behind, though. IMO there are a bit too many carrots in this food (cats don't need that much vegetable matter in their diet).
