  • WOW - Bianca Loves This Stuff!

    By on

    Not only is my rescue cat a very picky eater but she has a sensitive tummy and early-stage kidney disease. So I can't feed her just any old wet food! I emailed Nature's Variety to ask for the sodium and phosphorous levels in all of their wet cat foods (they sent me the info very quickly!) and I decided to try the limited ingredient turkey. Bianca loves this stuff so much that she snarfs down almost an entire 3oz can as soon as I put her food down. This has never happened before and she's 16 years young (12 of them with me) so that tells me that the ingredients really are as wonderful as they appear to be to me, the lowly human in this story. I may try some of the other LID varieties if Bianca Not only is my rescue cat a very picky eater but she has a sensitive tummy and early-stage kidney disease.

I may try some of the other LID varieties if Bianca seems to become less enthusiastic about the turkey but she's a poultry fiend so that 's unlikely. Thank you, Nature's Variety, for making such an awesome wet food for cats with multiple health issues; and thank you, Chewy, for carrying this food and for selling it at a price that's fair (yes, I'm a comparison shopper!). Please don't ever stop making/selling this food - it is officially Bianca-tested and overwhelmingly approved! :) … more

  • My cat loves it!

    By on

    My picky Sphynx Fellini cat fell in love with this food, which made me very happy, because I heard such good things about it. First, good nutrients, second it's pretty soft, means he gets enough liquid with it, and it's full of vitamins. My other two rescue cats slowly getting into this food too and they are very much addicted to Proplan, no matter how much I tried to introduce them to other brands. So I hope they will convert soon too.

  • Great low phosphorus option for renal impairment

    By on

    I needed to find some low phosphorus canned food my cats would eat. My oldest is having some renal impairment. I tried a lot of options and they tried to bury them all. Luckily two of them loved this from the beginning. No encouragement needed for the switch. They have continued to enjoy it with enthusiasm and I can feel confident I am feeding them healthy food.

  • No fillers or gums!

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I have an outdoor cat who hunts for most of his food, but I do supplement one meal for him in the daytime, when cats sleep. I used to give him Newman's Own but wanted more out of a natural food. This Instinct LID has what cats are meant to eat. It even has ground up bone! My cat loves this food and I feel really good about not feeding him gums and fillers - something not natural to any animal. One thing to note, for anyone who hasn't tried this, because it doesn't have any fillers or gums, it is runny and does not stick together like most canned cat foods. This is REAL food only. I love it!

  • Not even the strays will touch it

    By on

    Bought this for my 17 yr old indoor cat and he licked the gravy and left the pate untouched. Not a fan. Tried giving it to a couple strays in the area and it goes uneaten. Not sure what to do with it at this point...

  • Not their favorite

    By on

    I have one cat who has issues if not restricted to limited ingredient diet, so everyone has to eat the limited option. Trying different brands etc. This one was not so well received, may just be my cats, but all but one snubbed it. Gave it a 3 cause there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with food, just not appreciated by my cats

  • Clean and appealing

    By on

    The ingredients in this product appear to be quite clean, free of the usual garbage in pet foods. My 3 cats really like this one, as well as the duck and rabbit formulas. Contrary to popular knowledge, they love variety.

  • Good Cat Food

    By on

    My cats will eat this one but not very well and my cats usually will eat almost about anything. They can be picky at times, but they will not eat any can cat food with chicken. They have always liked turkey. They really don't like it. My friends cats won't eat it at all, but she has very picky eaters. Now that's not saying that all cats won't eat it because my friend is feeding two cats that are strays. She has been feeding them everyday for months. They love it and eat it very well. So it is pre the cats taste.

    My elderly cats love this food. It has a lot of liquid which they need as well as healthy ingredients. It is a little expensive. I would like to see the price come down a bit.

  • Great Grain Free Food

    By on

    I get this for my old Sphynx cat. She always eats it, nice texture and it has improved her skin. Some foods seem to give her itchy skin, this doesn't.
