Rated 5 out of 5 by Molly One of the best canned cat foods
No cat food is perfect, but this one and the other LID Instinct foods are some of the best. These are definitely my cat's favorite foods by far, and if it were up to her she'd eat them every day. I really like that they have different options for proteins to give some variety to my cat's diet. This LID duck is the most calorie dense of any of the foods I've tried, so I have to be careful with portions. Even with feeding less, it's still much more expensive than other foods in my rotation. It also contains peas, which isn't as bad as other foods but it's still a filler and not necessary for a cat's diet.
My cat does not have any food sensitivities, but I do like feeding LID because there are fewer fillers. This food also has no carrageenan, which is great! My cat has chronic constipation issues, and I've noticed that she does particularly well when she gets one of the Instinct foods every few days. I suspect the clay has something to do with it.
I do wish I could find the pork flavor of these LID foods more easily, because while she loves all of these flavors, that one is her favorite.

by CI1000 Excellent choice for IBD
My sweet girl, Marcella, has been suffering from IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) for over 3 years and it is incredibly difficult to find food that she will eat and most importantly does not cause diarrhea or vomiting. When she was first diagnosed she was able to eat many different "novel" foods and my vet recommended Nature's Variety. I have been feeding her Nature's Variety off and on for over three years. She developed an intolerance for egg which is in some of the Nature's Variety products so I can no longer feed her those foods. I have tried so many different foods over the past few months it is making me crazy..... She became really sick a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't figure out what to do..... so I put her back on Nature's Variety Limited Ingredient foods and am so thankful that after 1 week she is healthy again. This particular flavor has a nice consistency.... and she loves it!! Thank you Nature's Variety for making a one protein product that my cat loves!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary56 My cat loves it!
It is hard to find quality cat food these days! My kitty has allergies and I have to watch what is in the cat food. She loves the duck favor far better than the rabbit! I wish Instinct would decrease the cost. I have 4 other kitties and I have to feed them another brand due to cost!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sylviesmom Simple, wholesome and my cat loves it!
After my cat developed an apparent intolerance to chicken and turkey, I switched her diet to some novel (for her) proteins, namely Nature's Variety Instinct in salmon and lamb. I was looking for another novel protein to add to the rotation, and I read that cats who can't tolerate chicken and turkey often can tolerate duck. I decided to try the LID formula of this product because it seemed like a safer bet than the regular formula, which contains turkey liver. I was afraid that such a "plain" food might not appeal to my cat, but it turns out that she loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChunnysMom Kitty's happy, I'm happy!
After 8 years of eating the same dry food with absolutely no issues, my kitty suddenly started to display periodic signs of gastric upset. After ruling out all the scary things it could be, my attentions turned to her diet. I've tried many different foods (luckily my girl will eat pretty much anything) but she really does seem to enjoy this food, and I feel good knowing it is giving her everything she needs, without the amount of bad stuff usually found in pet food. I also like the variety of protein sources, as it's good for kitty to switch things up (Cats should not live on chicken alone!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by KittyMom Nature's Variety Instinct Duck Formula
The duck wasn't a big hit for my sensitive stomach cat. He just prefers the rabbit and lamb flavors best. I like this company's grain-free, no additives, gluten, starches or carrageenan. It's hard to find a premium cat food without all the unhealthy by-products and fillers. This company is a hit even though my cat prefers the lamb and rabbit over the duck, I would recommend Nature's Variety Instinct wet cat food if you have a cat with a sensitive stomach.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Grace My kitten doesn't like it. Neither do I.
I normally feed my kitten Weruva. I like how it is real meat and is highly moisture and she likes it too. But it doesn't provide enough calories for a growing kitten. I like Tiki but they only have two flavor without fish. I searched around and wanted to try Nature's Variety. However, when I opened the can I was disappointed. The food looks dry. My kitten did eat it. She was hungry and was crying for food when I opened the can. But once she had a few bites she stopped eating. She ate less than 1/4 of the can (she normally ate more than 1/3. I gave her some Weruva after she stopped eating and she started eating again. I like Nature's Variety's formula and how they have more flavors and more calories in their food. Just not moisture enough for me and attractive enough for my kitten.
