In the world of felines, orange tabbies are often likened to the rambunctious comic strip cat, Garfield, famous not just for his bright coat but also for his ample girth. However, when Ashton noticed that their cat Joe, a short-haired orange tabby, tipped the scales at a hefty 28 pounds, they knew this was no laughing matter.

When I moved in to live with Joe, he was 3 years old and approximately 28 pounds - severely overweight.

Enter Now Fresh! Joe loves our Turkey, Salmon, and Duck recipe. It wasn't just a change of diet; it was a shift towards a healthier lifestyle.

I knew I had to switch him to Now Fresh and have him on a strict diet.

Joe's story is a testament to the power of consistency and commitment.

It's been a challenge for sure because he is stubborn and wants to eat his siblings' food.

Yet, through patience and Ashton's careful watch, Joe slimmed down to an astounding 12 pounds!

It’s been just over a year and a half and Joe is now weighing in at approximately 12 pounds. ... Joe has lost over 16 pounds.

Joe might be stubborn, but when it comes to his Now Fresh routine, he's a model of good behavior.

When it’s time to eat, Joe will sit down for his bowl of food as we have taught him to 'sit'.
