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 2 out of 5 by catdad They are cutting corners on their food with poor results.
I used to feed NV line of wet cat foods to my previous cats and it helped with IBD etc. Now NV is using way way too much liquid not to mention sharp bone fragments. If I pour the liquid from a 5.5 ounce can it then weighs 4 ounces and it is a very very soggy 4. I actually have to paper towel it or both of my cats will get the runs. That results in more cans fed just to keep the cats from getting too hungry. NV is more interested in the bottom line financially then providing value for the dollar. I think they have changed hands or are just getting greedy. Don't waste your time calling; they don't really care about your concerns or opinions. They used to but not now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Brian Inconsistent apperance and interest from my cats.
I was attracted to this product because it does not contain questionable ingredients like carragenan. Unfortunately sometimes they will eat it and sometimes they will act like they are burying there business in the litter box. There is inconsistency from can to can in appearance and odor to me as well. Also, whole peas and other veges are not necessary for cats. It is just filler. I appreciate the company's attempt to limit ingredients and make a quality product but there is work to do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MozAndLu Trusted product now seems contaminated
I have fed my cats this food for many months. They enjoy it, eat all that is in their bowl, and with no digestive complaints. Now, They take one sniff and will not touch the "same" food from a new batch. switched out with food from a few cans I had left of the old batch. Same result every time. Wouldn't touch food from the new batch, consumed all of the of the bowl from the old batch. Did this with six different cans and each time results were exactly as described above. I am informed there has been no change recipe. Obviously something is wrong with the food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by satisfied Great Food - Works for the Food Allergies
One of my cats has a tough food allergy. This food seems to be working! Finally! He loves it.
It is terribly expensive but has more appropriate ingredients for our animals -- more meat! Not all the fillers. I'm hoping that will keep him healthy over the long term. Expensive food, but offset by fewer health problems over the years. They put so much junk in most pet foods.
I believe this product did not have caarageen which I was trying to get around too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by chrischan Good ingredients, cats don't like
Not sure why they won't eat it, but I wasted a ton of money on something they don't like. :-( They do like the lamb, however.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Austeyn2005 Quality food for allergic cat
With Chewy customer support assistance, I have been trying to find grain-free foods my Manx, Austeyn, will eat. He's a Southern boy and likes his gravy! This is a pate food, but he has accepted it enough that he will eat some. In addition, our Snoeshoe, Logan, who is much younger and not as partial to gravy, loves it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dodo For cats with kidney failure
I wrote review previously for NV Limited Ingredient canned food for Turkey, Duck, and Rabbit flavor. They still work well for my cat, who currently eats NV LID Turkey and Duck, both have phosphorus at about 0.8% on dry matter basis. However, I found out through the manufacture that their rabbit formula actually has extremely high phosphorus at about 1.5% which is not suitable for cats with kidney failure. So, turkey and duck are the only ones I feed my cat now. She loves them.
