Nature's Variety Instinct Grain-Free Lamb Formula Canned Cat Food
Natures Variety, good food
This is a high quality, grain free food from a company who seems to strive to put out the best product possible. My cats also love the chicken and turkey version of this canned food.
Also, very important to us is that there is no Carrageenan in the ingredients and no BPA is used in the lining of the 3 and 5.5 oz cans. These things are very important to informed pet parents when trying to make informed choices to benefit the health of our beloved companions.

One of the best pet foods I have found
I work with animal rescuers & do a lot of research on Pet Nutrition. This is one of the best foods I've found.
Someone said their pet didn't like this because it was too dry. Just add some water to the food, mix it in - and it becomes as moist as you - and your pet - like.
No Carrageenan and no Ethoxyquin! And, no other nasties.

healthy, but a little hard in the can
I got this food for my little foster kittens, since the shelter was not really providing good quality food for these little ones. At first, I was a little disappointed, because it was sorta hard in the can, even though it had "juice" in the can with it. Once I chopped it up a bit, the kittens really seemed to like it just fine. I like the fact that is is corn, wheat, soy and chemical free. These little ones need all the help they can get.

Too much calories per can
My cat gained 2 pounds after eating this product for 2 months. The 3 oz lamb can contains 141 calories. The chicke flavor is 20 calories less. If your cat lives on this lamb can ( two cans per day), 40 extra calories per day makes a big difference.

This food is a Godsend for cats with food sensitivities. Unlike other lamb products, this particular Nature's Variety does NOT have other protein sources that could be problematic - there isn't any chicken or fish hiding halfway through the ingredients list. My cats love it!

Nature's Variety Instinct Canned Cat Food
My cat has food allergies. We tried this food while waiting for blood test results. This and the rabbit. He's been eating it for a month now. I think he would like more variety in his diet. He loves chicken, but hasn't had any for a month. He really loved this food for the first week, but starting to get tired of it. I will keep feeding him this along with some tuna or salmon if it turns out that he's not allergic to fish. It really is a great food if your cat has allergies.

My cat has been suffering from a food allergy for about 2 years. His allergy was giving him diarrhea any time he ate, and prevented him from using the litter box because he was hurting so much. This is the only thing we've found that works, combined with steroid shots. The food by itself didn't solve the issue (but it helped a lot!), and neither did the shot. Combine them together, and I have a comfortable and happy kitty for the first time in a long time. So far he tolerates the lamb and rabbit formulas, and I will be trying another flavor soon to add some more variety to his diet. Thank you so much Nature's Variety!!!! I had lost all hope there for awhile.
