Rated 4 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Some cats like it, some cats don't When I first opened the can I was surprised by how unappetizing the food looked. It is a pate style food and it looked like a can of mud. It was gray and mucky. However, I don't know that animals particularly care what their food looks like. It's all about taste. I have two cats that typically eat canned food and had absolutely no interest in it. I tried mixing it with other food and they eventually ate a little bit of it. My daughter's cat thought she had just been given a bowl of fresh steak and gobbled it up. Animals are no different than people. They have different tastes. So I cannot recommend or not recommend this food based on my cats reaction. May 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My cats won't eat it My cats prefer junk food --- I can't get them to even try to beef flavor. I know it's one of the best recipes on the market and so frustrating that it ends up being eaten by the outdoor critters when my cats won't touch it. April 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thankfully no Carrageenan Happy to have found a product without Carrageenan and without Guar Gum. My cat throws up right after eating other brands, but not after eating Nature's Variety Instinct, which I attribute to the carrageenan. Wish this brand would be more affordable. April 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Food My male cat has food allergies so my Vet recommended this and my cat likes it. I can tell it is very high quality and the symptoms are gone. March 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Qulaity food I have ordered cases of the rabbit, beef, venison, chicken, salmon, and duck. Although all of the products are excellent, my cat seems to prefer the ones that have a stronger smell.The highest of the rankings is, therefore, smellier flavors: the salmon, chicken, and duck. The beef, rabbit, and venison have very little smell at all—something I think attests to the cleanness and quality of the meat—but my cat does not seem to enjoy it as much. As far as the beef, rabbit, and venison are concerned, the vet recommended warming the food in the microwave for 30 seconds to give the food a stronger smell. I do not like microwaves, so leaving the food out at room temperature seems to work for the beef, rabbit, and venison, although, once again, it is not a favorite. It is, however, worth a try like all Nature's Variety wet food products. It is the very best wet food I have encountered in my years as a pet owner, i.e. 10+ years. It is worth every penny.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Whitish fat? On top When I opened the can there was a layer of thick white yuck on top, fat maybe? It was not really solid, but not liquid either. So far none of the flavors are a hit with my cats. March 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by cat and parent approved My 15 year old Bengal male started losing weight about a year ago, and was diagnosed with IBS. My vet recommended Nature's Variety Instinct and it has been a life-safer. Beef is one of his three favorite flavors (along with chicken and rabbit). I rotate the three flavors, and add two tablespoons of warm water with each half-can serving. He loves the extra "gravy." His weight is up, and he is doing great again. I'm so glad that Chewy.com carries so many flavors for the NVI food. February 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good ingredients but cats don't think it's the bomb The cats like this when I first open the can but often the two of them don't want to finish the whole can. The feral cat is happy with it, however. February 14, 2016
