Rated 5 out of 5 by batmanandpuma Great for cats with or without allergies
One of my two cats (we got them when they were kittens) ended up having a food intolerance for poultry and an allergy to tuna. There are probably other things. It took months to figure out what the problem was since there were so many triggers and they're found in practically every cat food out there (wet and dry). This saved the day and we have been feeding it to them ever since for a few years now. Our other cat doesn't have any food intolerances or allergies and he loves it too. Both are very healthy now, and I'm sure this and the wet foods we feed are part of the reason. It is a shame there are so many products out there which five ingredients down the list have turkey or chicken fat or whatever else it may be. This one does not!

I bought both wet and dry because I have a cat with food allergies. Decided to feed her only the dry until we get her soft stools firmed up a bit, still a work in progress but it seems to be working! Couldn't be happier and the boys love this as well, even my 18 year old!! Thank you for a great product! Hopefully this will work, just don't want to have her go through any kind of procedure, just too risky at her age of 15.

My 11 year old cat has food allergies and Instinct rabbit limited ingredients works great for her. Also grateful that i can get it on auto ship through Chewey.com!

My cat has inflammatory bowel disease and had to switch to a protein source he'd never had before -- NO chicken, lamb, fish, or pork! This Limited Ingredient Rabbit kibble has filled the bill perfectly ... and after two years, he's still going strong. THANK YOU for offering this lifesaving food!

So far, so good. My cats have food allergies so I am trying rabbit to see if it works. They were on Salmon for several months but have now exhibited allergy symptoms to that. They get excessive ear wax, cry and scratch at ears. Sisters so probably genetic problem. I am hoping I don't have to switch to ZD as they don't like it.

My cat's food allergies give her chronic, and often severe, ear inflammation and wax buildup coupled with vomiting. Through a process of food elimination, my vet & I believe she has a poultry protein allergy. Finding a food she'll eat has been a real problem, however. She hates canned or raw food of any kind, and won't eat dry food made of fish/seafood, pork, venison or duck. So far she has only liked chicken or turkey (her food nemesis) -- that is until today! I'm so excited to report that she did not hesitate to eat the limited ingredient rabbit-based food from natural instinct!! She actually chose it over her usual food, blue buffalo turkey & potato. Fingers crossed that this food helps with her allergies. I feel we've made a huge step in the right direction with her just liking this food.

My cats love the Instinct cat food as long as it does not have the "raw" in it. They won't touch the same food with "raw". Wish they made more without the raw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AllergicAva An expensive mistake
Like many others considering this food, I have a cat with multiple food allergies (chicken, turkey, duck, egg). I had been feeding Orijen Six Fish, which they all liked, but one of the other cats was having occasional loose stools, so I wanted to try them on a mammal-based protein.
I purchased the small bag of this food first; it met with approval from all three kitties. I mixed it with the Orijen and transitioned them gradually over a period of two weeks. All seemed to be going well, so I bought the 12 lb bag. Within a few days, and once the cats were only eating Nature's Variety Instinct L.I.D. Rabbit Meal, all three developed consistent loose stools. On top of that, after about a week, the cats all began to lose their taste for the new food, and were losing weight.
That was the final straw, so I went out and purchased another fish-based food that I can get locally (TOTW Canyon Creek). Within a day or two, the cats were eating, and pooping, normally again.
This cat food did not work for my furry family!
