We have noticed a huge difference in our pets. Yes, we have cats and dogs all who are rescues. Because of their early history, many have health issues. Since switching them to Newman's Own most have leveled out and we spend less time at the Vet. The food cost less in the long run, because of better health for your animals. We also noticed that all of our animals love this product. Some of them like the dry better than the wet and vis-versa. Some of ours where picky eaters and needed to gain weight. Not anymore, they all show up for dinner eager and ready to eat.
My brother-in-law has a 14 year old Siamese who was on Science Diet Food for diabetes. He looked like he was on his last leg, the cat not my brother-in-law. Anyway, we started supplementing his food with Newman's Own and I swear the cat looks 2 years younger. He is more active, his eyes have cleared up, and he has lost weight. The vet is amazed as well, as his sugar levels are better. I am not suggesting anyone use this food as a replacement for what a Vet has suggested. But if you have an animal who is not responding well, it is worth a try to add this product to their diet.
399152399152B000VK4K3WA8VP6U6IE2GT6Rabbit with watch202051215561600Cat loves the flavorKitty loves it! Happily eats 1/2 can in one setting (13.5 lbs cat), 2-3 times a day. His fur does look fluffier after 2 months on this food and he seems more content and alert. Wet food does make him urinate more (he used to get a dry/wet mix of Urinary SO prescription diet), but I am glad, because this should help to keep his urinary tract healthy.

I researched various options before settling on this one. Among other brands (wet food only), he wouldn't even touch "Organix;" he likes "Evo" fine, but not as much as Newman's own and leaves one-third of food uneatten in the bowl. As far as other flavors of Newman's own, he didn't like the Brown rice flavor (too much rice--the cat kept picking out individual grains out of his food one by one), and strangely, after eating a few cans of store-bought Chicken&Salmon flavor, he refused to eat the same flavor from Amazon.
399153399153B000VK4K3WA3OT1RIV0CRKDQCheryl DC "Cheryl DC"414721269561600Excellent product... until Amazon ships it!I want to start by saying that if I was reviewing the food alone, it would get 5 stars easily. It's a quality product and my picky eater cat (as in, he would literally rather go hungry for days on end than be coaxed into eating something he doesn't like) loves it.

Having said that, I won't buy this (or any other canned product for that matter) from Amazon.com anymore, unless they were to significantly change their packaging method. Normally I only review a product all on its own because other factors are incidental, but this time it seemed fitting to comment on shipping too because it drastically affected the overall quality of the product and is an unavoidable part of getting it to any customer.

The product arrives in a small cardboard flat with 2 layers of 12 cans each, then the whole thing is shrink-wrapped in plastic. Then they put it in a shipping box and put 3 air pillows on top. Exactly 1/2 of the cans arrived dented (the entire bottom tier of the flat), many of them so badly that it looked like they had been run over by a car.

Amazon.com customer service is great and responsive - they shipped the replacement out with complimentary next-day shipping... and it arrived in exactly the same condition. In the end, I got everything I paid for, but 1. do I want to go through this every time I order it? No. And 2. it's hugely wasteful because of course the dented cans are unusable because the seal could be compromised, offering the perfect breeding ground for botulism.

I can fairly say that this is typcial for canned products in general from Amazon, too. I've gotten black beans, kidney beans, chick peas, tomato sauce, and tomato paste from them, and there wasn't one order among them that didn't have the same problem. Again, customer service was great and sent quick replacements (again with a high damage rate), but it's not worth the hassle and waste. If it ever occurs to them to pad the entire order and not just the top of it, I'll return to using them because the free shipping and convenience of subscription auto-order (and subsequent additional savings) really are nice.

Pretty please put this Liver on Subscribe and Save! You have the beef & liver and the beef available for S&S but not the Liver yet. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Now on to my review...

My cat has been slowly switching to Newman's own beef products over from Wellness brand cat food (which is a great brand and will still be reserved for treats occasionally). I was ecstatic that there was a totally NO grain-and-NO fillers ORGANIC cat food I could feed my 9 year old cat who is prone to crystal formation in his bladder and also plaque build up on his teeth (even though I brush his outer teeth every evening).

So far I've tried the beef & Liver and the Liver and he LOVES it. I just ordered the beef today for him which I'm sure he'll love too.

This product *IS* very thick and concentrated (the beef liver alone has the consistency of a concentrated pate' and the beef & liver has the consistency of a gelatinous, thick beefy oatmeal), so I scoop it into his bowl and blend a bit of hot water to the product to warm the fats and make more of a 'gravy' for him (he also prefers to eat his food a bit warm anyhow). He barely wants to nibble at his Wellness brand cat food now (which I've had him on for over four years, so I guess that means he's one 'sold' cat. It might be unusual for a cat to love beef so much but my cat goes crazy for beef (especially if I make him steak when I can afford to). So, for me to find him a organic, no grain, beef based line of cat food made his day (and one of his nine lives no doubt)!

Anyway, if you know your cat already loves beef and beef liver then he/she will probably be just peachy keen with this product.

Here's to Kitty's health!
399155399155B000VK4K3WA360EFJOE4L7IZPersistent "Patricia"8851211846400Fine Food for Diverse CatsI have two special needs cats. One is very small and could stand to gain weight. The other is too large and needs to loose weight.

The smaller cat likes this food. The overweight cat does not over eat on the food, which is a plus for us.

We tried Wellness, C&P Organix, Innova Evo (they loved the dry food), Pet Promise, the Whole Foods brand and a few others. Our cats did not like those brands of food. Some they wouldn't even eat.

They prefer the chicken and salmon brand to the other Newman's Own canned cat food flavors.

Pros:
* Organic
* Peace of mind for the cat owner
* Liked by cats with 'special needs'
* Preferred over other brands by two very different cats
* When I open some canned cat foods, the smell nauseates me. The smell of this brand doesn't have the same effect.

Cons:
* None that I can think of

Bottom line: This is a good organic canned cat food. Cats differ in their food preferences. It's a good idea to give this one a try. By the way, for a while, one or more of the flavors were only available in the smaller cans. If that is still the case, you may want to try those flavors as well.
399156399156B000VK4K3WAHW33LYPMQ8DBScarlett7751247529600"Best Canned Cat Food", says cat. :)This is the only food my cat will eat. She is very picky. Since eating this better, organic food exclusively, she has had much better health. (She is quite an old cat.) For some reason the "Turkey Formula" flavor is her favorite. If I try out a different food, she runs up and down the hallway yelling, until I give her "Newman's Own" canned (turkey flavor) food again. (I never try out new foods with her anymore.) :) Must be good stuff! BTW: I also add in fresh organic greens and green powders for her too. She loves it!

Kwan7751242950400Newman makes nutritious pet foodIt is sad to see people rating on a pet food product based on whether or not their pet likes the taste, but not based on the ingredient of the good. When their cat doesn't eat, they give one star. When their cat loves to eat, regardless of the nutrition of the food, they give 5 stars. It is unfair to the manufacturer. Unfortunately, this seems like the trend of pet food rating.

Newman always make good healthy and nutritious pet food. They contains no corn gluten, animal by-products, etc that will be harmful to cats. Yes, they are pricey because they are organic. Once a while Amazon runs a promotion on Newman's Organic cat food, and it will be the good timing to stock them up.
399158399158B000VK4K3WA2NQQ1CDUJOFBLPamela Rasmussen5551243382400Wonderful!!My 15 year-old cat was on a special diet for digestive problems and she also has diabetes. When she stopped eating her usual special-formula food, I tried about 10 different kinds of catfood, and this was the only one she liked. It is easy on her digestion and doesn't interfere with her diabetes. Thank you, Newman's Own!!
399159399159B000VK4K3WA236TTA6PZ9WOSSam E. Grosz5551238371200Cats approved!Two increasingly finicky cats approved my leap-of-faith purchase of Newman's Own Organics Chicken & Brown Rice Formula by cleaning up their bowls.

399162399162B000VK4K3WAF42HX1CY5TTAE. McGinnis3351311724800My cat's favoriteMy cat is prone to Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease, and needed a good quality canned cat food to prevent blockages. Newman's was the first I tried, and he loves all of the flavors except the Beef and Beef and Liver.

I recently tried to switch him to Wellness, which is grain-free, and smells much better. But instead of cleaning his plate like he does with Newman's, half the can of food was left untouched. So I'm now subscribing to Newman's because I think it's a great deal for organic cat food (which Wellness is not) even if it has grains. I guess my cat just likes grains!

I recommend this food, but keep in mind that cats are finicky (well, most cats anyway). Buy one or two trial cans before committing to a 24-pack!
399163399163B000VK4K3WA2PNOU7NXB1JE4Peggy "pab920"33313036896003 for chicken& brown rice- 0 for beef flavorBoth of my cats like the chicken & brown rice and Newman's dry food flavors which I buy when they are heavily discounted. Neither of them would touch the beef flavor I bought on a gold box special. It has a faded milky slightly greenish pale brown hue, not medium brown as one would expect and oddly not much of an odor (I know why complain about that, but my point is is should have some type of aroma or odor to it.) Because of the color I did not donate it or feed it to the strays as I think it may be a bad batch. The reason for the 3 stars is for chicken & rice is at the price point there are better organic cat food values that do not contain so much brown rice. I like Organix and By Nature ingredients and my cats do too. Sometimes I'll buy Natural Value or Natural Balance canned foods since they offer more variety of flavors.
399164399164B000VK4K3WA2G9M92C9FBUEPGrasshopper3341290038400Good quality food, but Amazon's ingredient listing is incorrectWe have a cat with a liver problem who needs a low-purine diet. As a result, we are trying to switch her off of her Wellness food and find poultry alternatives that do not contain any organ meat.

The ingredients listed on the site are accurate except that they exclude "chicken liver" as the second ingredient in the chicken and brown rice food and "turkey liver" as the second ingredient in the turkey and vegetable food. Thus, I just bought two cases of food that will not meet my cat's needs at all!

Other than that, it seems to be a high quality food. It is a pate-style food with a meaty, but not unpleasant odor. Cats ate it right away when offered. Will be donating ours to the local animal shelter, where I am sure it will be loved!
399165399165B000VK4K3WA1YSJWHU1OBFMRuby3351243555200Worth the PriceSure it costs a bit more, but all five (yes, cinco gatos!) of my cats love it. Plus it's organic so you know you are feeding them the best and you know it's good for the earth.

Has the brown rice grains around the outside of the can which is great because it allows the food to easily slip out of the can onto your kitty's plate. No wated food left sticking to the sides to scrape out.

That is the recommendation...If Rheeboot eats it, it must be good!
399167399167B000VK4K3WA1PTPE899WLMP7S. Platt2251332028800Super high quality for the ones you loveBesides the fact that it's the only food my fussy bunch of four agree they like...there are other reasons why I love Newman's Own. Check the label. The first, and most abundant ingredient is organic turkey. In fact, ALL of the ingredients are organic. When others pets were sadly dying from contaminated food connected to China, I could rest assured my cats were OK. Again, check the label...Newman's Own meets the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO...a factor my vet cautioned me on when I went looking for a high quality food. Finally, I buy it because Paul & Nell Newman produce a great line of products. If you want to treat yourself, pick up a package of Newman's Own Organic Cookies. It doesn't matter if you go for the Newman O's or the Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies...they're all terrific.
399168399168B000VK4K3WA2RDLSG5LGD12EJean2251329523200Cat HeavenWonderful product in many ways. Cats coat are shedding less and beautifully silky. They love the Turkey and vegges flavor. Price is not bad for the quality. Highly recommend.
399169399169B000VK4K3WA11OTLEDSW8ZXDCGScammell2231305849600My cat wouldn't eat the beefThis is the first catfood I've had in a can that didn't smell strong of aromas when I opened it, and perhaps that is why the cat wouldn't eat it. Catfood is notorious for having artificial aromas added to attract finicky cats. This stuff is all organic and even when hungry, the cat just walked away from it.

So the case I bought for the cat literally went to the dogs, who all gave this stuff two paws up. The dogs saw the small cans as special treats and would woolf it down fast.
399170399170B000VK4K3WA2VKNBXNN7HHEBAmy Ann Hamilton2241303430400Fresh & naturalGreat product. Even my very picky kitty (has digestive problems)liked this flavor. She always loves salmon-flavored wet food but not usually chicken-flavored wet food, so I was apprehensive about her reaction. It took her a few days, but she got to like it (not love it). It looks different from the wet food we're used to, but that's apparently due to the lack of artificial preservatives. Also, I feel good about buying it since proceeds go to charity.
399171399171B000VK4K3WA2UJBVR563E39ERenee M. Martin2231296172800Cat would not eat it.I really cannot give this product a bad review. My cat would not eat it, so I gave it to someone else and their cat loved it.
My cat is an adopted stray that was eating the birds in my yard. I started feeding him Purina Cat Chow in a dish on my breeze-way. Ordered the Newman's so he would get more protein. He just didn't go for it.
399172399172B000VK4K3WA28K26FLMXKHHNC. Marshall2251278720000Chicken and SalmonMy six month old kitty (Tinker) loves the Newman's Chicken and Salmon moist food. I was buying another commercial brand and even though he would eat some most would be left to dry up and most of the can was being wasted. So paying a little more for a quality organic diet and not a bunch of by-products is well worth it. Plus the Newman's organic brand certifies that ingredients have been grown on farms that have not used artificial fertilizers or pesticides. I have bought two other flavors of the food but this one is his favorite.
399173399173B000VK4K3WA3977OZLNA8LCBCarol Lynn2251273795200No more tummy troubles for my kittyI have a cat with tummy/bowel problems but not any more! He loves this food and all his irritable bowel problems are over! Also no worries about him eating the chemicals and junk in other foods-obviously things that were causing his problems. Expensive? Yes, but no more vet bills for tummy medicine!
399174399174B000VK4K3WAFS8GLUYZIE58Coddington "coddington"2251264464000great high quality foodPros: organic, grain free and a reputable company that gives back to the community
cons: my cats needed a few days to get used to this. yes the meat looks grey. but that is because it is all natural.
What I do is mix a 3 ounce can with half a can of Wellnes Beef and Chicken. (so its 3/4 meat and only 1/4 chicken) This seems to work. They love this combo. If I just give them the newman's, they eat but don't finish it. Out of all of the grain free beef canned cat foods, I've had the most success with this. My cats didn't like Nature's Variety Instinct or by nature organic. (Both great brands) But its really important to rotate protein sources so that my cats don't develop allergies (my six year old cat recently developed a seafood allergy after only eating seafood for 5 years...) so I push the beef on them.
Give it a shot. It might take some work or creativity but eventually you should win. Both my cats are v finicky and I found a way to make it work. Organic beef! I don't even eat organic beef all the time! LOL! ITs a bit pricey but its worth it. Healthy food = healthy cats=longer life=less disease/health problems.
399175399175B000VK4K3WAO7OI98T0OOBEmuir2251239062400Cat Likes Better Than Newman's Turkey FormulaPros:
-Good first 5 ingredients: Organic Chicken, Water, Chicken Liver, Salmon, Ocean Whitefish
-My cat likes it better than Newman's Turkey and Vegetables formula

Cons:
-Expensive (but organic)
-A top pick for my cat, but noticeably not as much as her favorite: Natural Balance (similar top 5 ingredients: Chicken, [Water], Chicken Liver, Duck, Salmon)

So in the organic category, this is a 5-star pick. But if you're willing to go non-organic consider Natural Balance.

399176399176B000VK4K3WA29S4OB7TZ7GGXSusan Payne "Susan Payne"2251233792000Newman's Own Turkey & Vegetable CatfoodI have four cats with differing tastebuds/likes. They all enjoyed this product, and there was no waste. The supplier sent the wrong size, the smaller 3-ounce cans, but Amazon immediately rectified this in a highly satisfactory manner. I use the recurring order option for an additional discount, and there is no tax levied on this product (like in stores) on Amazon's site. I would recommend this product for anyone considering it for their cat(s)

399180399180B000VK4K3WA2S7MFZVV9IP43A. Frankenfield1111344384000Cat won't eat itI feel really bad writing this review since I am a big fan of the Newman's Own brand for human food. Their salad dressings are amazing. However, my cat would not eat this product. I purchased the beef flavor because she loves her beef flavored cat treats. I give her organic dry food most of the time, but after talking to some other cat owners, they informed me that I should be mixing some wet food into her diet because wild cats get most of their moisture from their food in nature and don't drink a lot of water. I thought it couldn't hurt to give this to the cat as a treat a couple times a week, but she won't even touch it. I tried mixing her regular dry food into it to give it some texture, and she just ate the dry food around it. I am not sure if this is just a textual preference for my cat or if it is this particular cat food.
