Nature's Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Turkey Formula Canned Cat Food
My cat itches from allergies. He is 14 years old now, and has become a fussy eater. His food has to smell just right, or he will not eat it. This food continues to be one he loves. The smell is always good for him, and he readily eats this. Most of his teeth are gone, so I soak the food overnight in the fridge. I also give him the canned version of this food. My cat is diabetic, and this food also works well with his diabetes.

This message if for anyone who have cats with allergies
I went through the whole itchy/scratching thing with my 4 cats. To find out if it is a food allergy can take up to 12 weeks. You take away 1 food at a time and wait 12 weeks to see if they stop itching. If not you take away another. For cats Beef, Seafood, chicken & or eggs could be the culprit. But if that does not work, have your vet recommend a specialist and have a skin scrapping done. Actually I would do that first. I wasted 8 months, doing shots, prednisone etc only to find out my kittens had mites, which you could not see. Even if it is not the food or mites it could be something else and the vet &/or allergist specialist can do the skin scrapping (does not hurt) and do blood work which will give you more insight. This food however does work great for pets with certain food allergies.
Hope this helps all of you. Also get pet insurance. It is so worth it. Trupanion.com

Great for taste buds, great for tummies!
I was looking for a healthy, grain-free wet food that meets the needs of all three of my cats without having to spend a fortune. I hit the jackpot with Instinct's limited ingredient formula. All three love the taste, and the simple ingredients are easy to digest and don't cause any stomach upset with my sensitive-stomached cat. Its high protein and low carb count are great for helping my overweight cat lose a few pounds. I could not be more pleased with this product.

My cat enjoys Nature's Variety Instinct canned foods, and the brand offers the types of proteins she should have without ingredients to which she has allergies. I recommend this limited-ingredient line to anyone whose cat has difficulty digesting other foods or has allergies. Nutrition is of highest priority for health.

Our finicky 17 year old with allergy problems likes
the LID Turkey more than the duck which she ate, but was't very fond of it. She loves the turkey !!

My cats will not eat this food!
My cats love the Nature's Variety dried food, especially my most finicky 13 year old with terrible food allergies, but they generally prefer wet food, so naturally I thought of switching to the canned food. Unfortunately, they donât care at all for it. I am sure the product in itself is perfectly tasty to other cats, but mine would rather starve to death than eat another bite.

My cat didn't like it.
My cat also has food allergies and the vet said turkey only. I'm glad I only bought one can since he refused to eat it...and I thought my cat would eat anything and everything. Thankfully he ate the dry version of this food. It's been 2 months and he's still an itchy kitty that scratches so I (and the vet) am still unsure if it's food for something else. I don't think it's fair of me to rate this poorly as well as not recommending it just because my cat won't eat it.

Cat would not eat this
I am not sure what it is about this food but my cat has NO interest in eating it. Since I had ordered way too much (by accident, ordered 2 cases instead of 1) I decided I would feed it to my dog. She wouldn't eat it either. That said, I'm stuck with a case and a half of this stuff so will be donating it to the local shelter. Hopefully those animals will like it.
