Real meats, whole fruits and vegetables and turmeric are a few of the ingredients Instinct uses to provide naturally derived nutrients and enzymes for overall wellness.

The Mindful Choices Instinct Makes

Every Instinct recipe shows the careful, deliberate approach they take in crafting their food. They use only real ingredients, and you'll never find artificial colors, flavors or preservatives or fillers like corn, wheat or soy.



Supplies fatty acids that nourish the skin. It is also highly digestible and easily utilized for energy.



Made from green tea leaves that have been carefully harvested and ground. It provides great taste and aroma.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great limited ingredients dry cat food! I have three cats, one of which has a sensitive stomach. The two cats immediately ate this food with no hesitation and the cat with the sensitive stomach isn't bothered by this food, even with it being the dry option. December 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Real food for real cats Easy to bite bits of what my 5 cats can agree on (the only dry food). The zip bag could use an improvement and doesn't always stay shut, so I typically "repackage it" breaking it down and putting it into several gallon size Ziplock bags. Have used product for more than 6 months after it was recommended for 2 of our cats with health issues. December 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Convenient My cat has allergies and I can't get this product locally so ordering it is so convenient. October 26, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dandruff and hair loss?? I switched my siamese from Nature's Variety Chicken Meal Formula to this limited ingredient food because the vet said she needed to lose weight. I mixed the 2 foods to start and my cat would pull the kibble from this new food and eat it only... that was the good news as she clearly loved it. She's been on it for awhile now but has not lost weight and now she is shedding excessively and has terrible dandruff. Both things she did not do before. The only thing that changed was this food. I'm wondering if limited ingredients is leaving our pets needing other ingredients... more omega fats, maybe? I'd love to know if anyone else has experienced this? Thank you! August 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food My cats had no trouble transitioning over to this brand and flavor. The limited ingredients seem to be helping the food allergies. It is terribly expensive but has more appropriate ingredients for our animals -- more meat! Not all the fillers. I believe this product did not have caarageen which I was trying to get around too. August 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great ingredients! The cats don't gobble this down but I have high hopes for this canned cat food. They will eat some so I went from 5.5 ounce cans to 3 ounce cans so I don't feel like I'm wasting so much food! Limited ingredients (one of them has a sensitive stomach) is great. I just ordered another flavor (duck) so I'll switch it up and see how they react. I'm just not going to buy the food they love - way too many ingredients and probably way not healthy for them either. July 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helped with food allergies Our cat had skin allergies on most other brands, this worked like a miracle. Our cat loves this food. August 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for all kitties! I have 5 cats, two of which have health problems. They all can eat this food without getting sick or having diarrhea. No more having to do separate feedings so they don't get the wrong food! August 6, 2016
