Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed Disappointed. Doesn't contain but probably 10 % raw pieces. It is mostly just the instinct kibble with a few pieces of freeze dried raw thrown in. If it had more raw would have liked product better. November 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by The BEST dried kitty food on the market! I have fed my 4 Siamese and 1 Havana Brown quality (grain-free, byproduct free, "Animal" anything-free) dried food, as well as wet foods for several years since I brought them to the US in 2009. I STILL had issues with the Havana pulling his fur out.. he was always "dandruffy", and two of the Siamese who would over-groom a front leg until it was sore, scabby and bald. Also a Meezer with an auto-immune chronic eye condition necessitating regular cleaning and treatment with eyebright drops. No more! The first time I opened the first bag, they went nuts! After a week of feeding them via the Aikiou cat feeder (stops bolting then vomiting in my cats), our "Fat Boy" had gained a waist, Jake, our skin-and-bone boy was putting on weight, Harvey the Havana stopped plucking, the bald legs started growing fur, and we saw a visble reduction in Bodie's eye inflammation. So much so that the mask had started to darken again.. amazing! Harvey's short brown coat has always felt "greasy", but since we started with the Raw Instinct, it feels as smooth as silk and no more dandruff! By the way, the cost, per kitty, per week, is around $3.00. You can "do" cheaper than that of course, but for me, seeing my cats looking so beautiful and healthy, is worth every cent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Feeding it to our diabetic cat. Our 12 year old cat was diagnosed diabetic. The cause? High carb dry cat food. If we had known to feed this type of food, our cat would not be diabetic. After slowly switching him to this food, along with a little low carb canned food, he has improved dramatically. We do not administer insulin. If your cat has similar issues, try this food as a first step. The downside is the cost, but compared to the cost of insulin.... April 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for transition A few of my cats have been very slow to get off of dry food. So I was thrilled when I found this. and that they eat it! they are the most finicky. So now I'm at least getting some freeze dried raw into them. and it's grain free - a must. December 30, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Changed Their Formula in 8/14 And now it gives my cats diarrhea!! What happened to the old saw, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"? In my opinion, there have been some real quality control issues over the summer of 2014, and now the formula change is the last straw. I have received 4 bags of this (including 2 of the new formula) that are at least 15-20% CRUMBS. And now the new formula is much less kibble and much more of the "raw bits". This new balance may be tastier for the kitties, but it gives them the runs. The kibble is also a noticeably different color, so I have to conclude that there are different ingredients, or a different balance in them too. After over a year feeding my two cats this food, I am going to have to switch. September 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by low carb Theo loves it, he is putting on weight (diabetic cat, had gotten very thin). He is feeling better and acting more like his old, playful self. August 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gives my cats the energy they need All my cats love this kibble. A high caloric kibble with bits of freeze dried raw that gives my devon rex cats and sphynx the energy they need. I use a small scoop 1 TBLS at a time and it usually has 1-2 pcs of freeze dried chicken in it. Freeze dried is not cheap if purchased alone and the amount given at each feeding should be small; therefore I feel although more expensive than other kibble, it is priced accordingly and the freeze dried content is in good proportion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing! Chewy sent this food to me by mistake. I usually order this brand of food for my dog, but since I got the cat food I decided to give it a try. My cat is usually very finicky, but He loves it! He has had an issue with licking off his fur. He was so mangey looking. I had a RX that I had to wrestle him down to force feed him. I started feeding him this food and his fur has grown back and he looks beautiful. No more wrestling! He is only on his second bag too. Highly recommend. Check it out on Pet Food Advisor.
