Rated 5 out of 5 by JoeB Quality ingredients, affordable price
If you're looking for a cat food without carrageenan, guar gum, xantham gum, articifical colors/flavors, mystery meats/fillers, and grains, this is your best bet.
I believe the lamb is the best of the best, but it is quite pricey, so I ordered the LID turkey and found that you don't have to sacrifice any of the standards put into Nature's Variety with a different flavor.
I first fed my ten month about 1.5 oz three hours after his full breakfast and he went to town. Will your cat like this food, I don't know.
I know there tons of cat food brands to choose from, but you can't go wrong with this one. At roughly $1.90 a can, none of the other brands at that price point or below can boast the quality of what's in (and most importantly -NOT- in) this recipe.
I read that Nature's Variety recently underwent a change at ownership: a 50% partner bought out the rest of the company and now has sole ownership. Stay tuned to what's next for the company, though they assure nothing will change in terms of its commitment to a healthy at food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Catt Awesome food!
I switched to this brand because my 3 picky cats all liked Nature's Variety Instinct dry kibble food with the freeze dried raw chicken, and their freeze dried raw treats and meal mixer. I wanted to put them on wet food to maintain their weight and I heard it was better for them. It was hard to find any canned food without carrageenan, dextrose, xantham gum, guar gum, or anything questionable in it or with fish as a main ingredient until I came across this one. My cats love it and I feed them the turkey, chicken, and duck versions of the canned food. Very satisfied customer and very happy cats! :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by SnowCat Happily Surprised that Our Elderly Fussy Cat Eat It!
We've always fed our cats high quality canned foods, and they are made of real meat/fish that still look like meat/fish. Recently, though, our elderly cat reached her final stage and her teeth cannot handle chunky real meat any more. So, I began looking for a pate-style food without bone meal and other harmful preservatives, etc., and this was one of the top five choices. She has been a finicky eater all her life, so I was not surprised when she rejected the other four brands... but, she actually ate this one! We are so happy that we've found a pate-style food that is high quality of its style, our frail cat can chew, and she is willing to eat. A happy & great surprise!!

I have 3 rescue kitties who are very finicky. They gave it one lick and all 3 walked away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Trailrider Cans from last case was very soupy.
Great product. Healthy ingredients. Very pricey though. The cans I opened from the last 2 cases of duck & turkey were so soupy that there was 1/2 as much actual food in it from the previous cans. I switched to another food for financial reasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chebert813 Smells delicious, even by people standards
Our vet recommended this food for our senior cat newly-diagnosed with diabetes. Truly, he's never been a picky eater, so his glowing endorsement only means so much. But he wolfs this down quite happily; if we gave him twice as much, he'd still eat until it was gone. AND, it actually smells kinda yummy, even to me! Very moist and juicy. I highly recommend it, and so does my vet!
