Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 119 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My cats became nicer and their coats shinier I did a lot of research for an affordable, grain-free cat food, and I am so happy with the results from using Nature's Variety. My cat's coats were dull and somewhat coarse, and they seemed to become very irritable. After a month with the chicken formula, they just seemed happier, and more eager to play. They seemed much more satiated. Their coats became substantially shiner and softer. I have since switched to venison, and that has worked great as well. The food itself has a strong aroma, but not too strong. You can even see the carrots and other veggies in the pate. I am very happy with this product and so are my cats. January 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best wet food in the world (esp for cats with food or health issues)! Despite my five cats' many food and/or other health issues, this food never fails. They love it (along with the rabbit and duck varieties) no matter how often they eat it. I love it because of the high protein content and lack of frivolous ingredients. One of my five kitties can't eat other wet food without getting seriously ill. (I am not exaggerating. I have tried everything, including cooking her salmon every day until I found this product.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by My fussy eater loves it! For the past 3 years I’ve been pulling my hair trying to find a grain-free canned cat food that my cat will actually eat. He grew up eating Fancy Feast, and since I pulled him off it I have tried feeding him just about every grain-free cat food that I could buy, but he always refused to eat more than just a few bites, if any... Well, 2 weeks ago that changed when I gave him Instinct Grain-Free Chicken Formula. He loves it so much that I just ordered a second case. I haven’t tried giving him any of the other flavors yet. I wish it was sold in a “variety pack”, so my cat could try the different flavors before I had to commit to buying a full case. April 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Happy Healthy Kitty I found out about Nature's Variety Instinct when researching non-garbage cat food options for my new cat. Grain-free, no artifical flavors or fillers, no carrageenan - almost impossible to find cat food that don't have carrageenan - Cans are BPA free. Not imported from China. My cat is pretty picky and he loves this stuff. It seems almost impossible to find the 3oz cans anywhere locally #or online for that matter), so this is a great deal for us. September 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great prices, website, delivery...not to mention - my cat loves it! I'm finickier than my cat when it comes to what she eats because I selfishly want her to break the Guinness World Record for longest living cat. She's been on dry food for 14yrs at which point I started adding a 1/4 of wet. Now at 16yrs young I decided to go all wet food. I researched for days and chose this as the best one out there. Then came price. I'd never ordered food online before but thought...based on another 15yrs of purchases...why not check pricing. MrChewy won based on the initial order discount and easy of website use. The order came as requested and my cat absolutely loves it. She drinks most of the juice and then eats the food a bit later. I will re-order from them. August 5, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by could be better than advertised NV instinct can is high in fat and has too many veggies. Cats don't need veggies! I wish companies would stop adding it to their food to save money. Its great that it doesn't have careegenan or guar gum but its not the perfect food. I have one cat who will eat it evertime I put it down and another who will often walk away. February 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chicken Formula My cats love the chicken, lamb, duck and rabbit! This is a healthy cat food, delivers on time, no problems. February 15, 2012
