Rated 5 out of 5 by dogless Our cat loves this product.
Our oldest cat, probably at least 15 years old, was probably on his 9th life. He was withering away, unable to keep food down. Our niece recommended we try Instinct Turkey canned food. He ate it voraciously, it didn't upset his stomach, and he is now gaining back weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FiveStarCats Good limited ingredient option!
All 4 cats here have diet sensitivities & all love this food! The consistency, smell, taste all appeal to them & the issues associated with food sensitivity ~ diarrhea, vomiting, itching, hot spots, infection ~ are taken care of! Very pleased with this & other flavors, especially Rabbit & Duck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dretzel This food is great for my sensitive belly cat
Yes, tried the dog formula because this food has the same formula as cats. Something in the dog formula was different because Dretzel loves his cat food and doing well.

We've tried several other flavors of this brand - the salmon, rabbit. The turkey is by far the preferred flavor. In addition, one of my cats has digestive issues and this brand is one of the only ones he can eat with no GI distress.

by Snuffle Limited Ingredient Favorite, Lamb and also Turkey Flavor
My two kitties, sisters who are fifteen-years-old, needed special diets; one has early chronic kidney disease and the other has some gastrointestinal issues.
I sent a copy of the guaranteed analysis, plus vitamin, mineral, and amino acids content to our veterinarian who deemed the food excellent for my GI-challenged girl. Although I don't have the dry matter analysis, the protein and phosphorus levels are acceptable for my kitty with early CKD.
They both love the lamb, but turkey gets vote of only one. For both of them I add water and stir up in sort of a porridge that looks icky but which they like, and it gives them additional fluid.
I like the fact that it is available in small cans so I don't have leftover food sitting around. I recommend a trial of this food to those looking to reduce or eliminate the extraneous ingredients their kitties eat.

Our kitty just switched from dry food due to bladder stones, and he absolutely loves it! Hes always crying like crazy when I go to feed him haha. My only complaint is how pricy it is, but I would definitely recommend this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoeB Quality ingredients, affordable price
If you're looking for a cat food without carrageenan, guar gum, xantham gum, articifical colors/flavors, mystery meats/fillers, and grains, this is your best bet.
I believe the lamb is the best of the best, but it is quite pricey, so I ordered the LID turkey and found that you don't have to sacrifice any of the standards put into Nature's Variety with a different flavor.
I first fed my ten month about 1.5 oz three hours after his full breakfast and he went to town. Will your cat like this food, I don't know.
I know there tons of cat food brands to choose from, but you can't go wrong with this one. At roughly $1.90 a can, none of the other brands at that price point or below can boast the quality of what's in (and most importantly -NOT- in) this recipe.
I read that Nature's Variety recently underwent a change at ownership: a 50% partner bought out the rest of the company and now has sole ownership. Stay tuned to what's next for the company, though they assure nothing will change in terms of its commitment to a healthy at food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CyndiB Great food
Iv'e been feeding this to my cats for a long time. It's great quality soy and grain free food. But one of my cats wont eat it suddenly....gave up after trying for a week, even tried a different batch. So its great food, but after I'm guessing a year at least, one cat is sick of it I guess.
