Rated 5 out of 5 by PickyCats The only thing I can feed BOTH my special needs cats...
I have one cat with food allergies/dietary sensitivities that will literally eat whatever is put in front of her if she could, but will then vomit/diarrhea later; and the other has asthma, needs to be given medication in food, and has always struggled to keep weight on as she turns up her nose at almost all food.
We have tried several different flavors of the Nature's Variety Pride canned food, and they like and will eat most of them, but the lamb flavor seems to be the winner as it is a strong enough flavor to mask the medication taste and stimulate appetite to finish the whole thing for "asthma kitty" but a tolerable enough protein that "vomit kitty" has had no GI effects from it.
I have literally been trying for 5 years to find a grain free, alternate protein, healthy, yet tasty canned food that both cats can eat the same thing and this is the only one that seems to meet both of their needs!

After trying to transition my cats off of Fancy Feast to a better quality line of cat food, my cats finally responded to the taste test of all varieties of Nature's Variety Pride by Instinct. My overweight cat is normalizing and my nearly anorexic cat is gaining weight. This is gross ... But one who has suffered from IBD has returned to normal bowl movements. Their coats are shiny. Their spirit is younger. My cats don't like pate. Chunky foods are not god for their little mouths, and shredded is just too much work for them. This food so perfect .. Minced with plenty of gravy , precious hydration. Mine love it and I'm thrilled to find the right food for my kitties!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatinCLT My cat gobbles this up
My cat scarfed this down and then licked the plate. She loves it. I like that this food doesn't have any grains, additives, or carrageenan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rubyro Nature's Variety is awesome!
I love the quality of this food! My 18-month-old British Shorthair also must love it because she licks the plate clean every time it is offered!! I get the Pride because she likes chunky food--either the minced or flaked. I rotate between lamb, rabbit, duck, and chicken because I don't want to give her anything that is all fish. She is healthy, trim, and full of energy. I firmly believe in the prevention of ailments that come about many times due to feeding pets cheap "junk" food that contains too many grains worthy only of barnyard animals. I treasure companies who put the health of our pets first! Good job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DBail My 4 cats love it!
This cat food is finely minced almost to the point of being ground. It it has a lot of gravy. My cats don't like food with larger chunks of meat, so this is perfect for them. There is nothing left behind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brbifb Even my finicky kitty loved it!
I only feed high quality food or raw. My newest rescue is EXTREMELY finicky. Well, he LOVES this. Actually 3 of my 4 cats love the minced lamb. The 4th cat only eats raw or fish flavors so I wasn't surprised that he didn't even try it.

If you are reading this, you know it is hard to please a cat in the food dept. Both cats love this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mommybugs This is the best cat food that I have ever purchased!
I have three of the pickiest cats that have ever lived! I have tried every brand, and I do not lie, when I say every brand of canned cat food. I happened to see reviews on Pride, and decided to try it. My boys LOVE it! They lick their bowls clean and come running when I open up a new can, every time! And their coats are beautiful! Shiney, and soft to touch, with clear, bright eyes! Truly recommended!
