Transforming the
Lives of Pets

Nature's Variety Instinct believes that everything we feed our pets should be real, whole, pure, and as close to its natural state as possible. They are on a mission to transform the lives of pets and make it possible for more people to feed their own pets the pure, real nutrition that only comes from raw.

Pure, Real Nutrition of Raw
in Every Recipe

Instinct is on a mission to transform the lives of pets through the pure, real nutrition of raw. Their belief in the power of raw inspires every food they make. Instinct has carefully crafted their foods to provide easy ways to incorporate raw into your pet's diet.

Real Food for Real Nutrition


Instinct believes protein should primarily come from pure animal sources. Animal protein provides all the essential amino acids, which vegetable protein alone can't provide.


Instinct never uses fillers like grain, gluten, corn, wheat and soy, because they think every ingredient should have a specific nutritional and functional purpose.


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.


An all-natural hypoallergenic starch that is highly digestible, grain-free and gluten-free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 24, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. August 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. July 19, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by WHAT HAS CHANGED??? I used to give this five stars. I , as an incredibly picky cat butler and well informed on pet nutrition, LOOOOONG time customer of NV Instinct; in more recent years using the LID products In the last few months two out of three of my cats have been throwing up shortly after the NV meals of the duck and turkey I love that NV doesn't use carrageenan, guar gum or agar agar BUT wonder what's going on. I did call them and leave a message, regarding this but to date ( over a month) it has been ignored. July 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great canned food Love what NV does not put into this food. All of my cats love this flavor. I like how much moisture is in it. The consistency seems perfect. July 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 Stars from 3 very different Cats I was looking for a healthier canned Turkey food that wasn't loaded with grains & by products and was made in the USA. Instinct fit every criteria. The switch with all 3 kitties, a mouthy Calico, a big goofy Tabby and a little feral kitty who adopted us was instantaneous! They won't touch their old Turkey canned food now. Remaining cans will be donated to our local no-kill animal shelter. July 10, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by my kitten got diarrhea I've fed this canfood to my kitten my kitten is 3 month old she is a ragdoll after my kitten ate this canfood, she got diarrhea. this stuff is not for my kitten July 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost Perfect Cat Food FINALLY! If Nature's Variety would JUST leave out the peas, this could be the food I have been trying to find for my Sophie! I can pick out the peas, but wish I didn't have to do so. 14 yr old kitty that has had radio active iodine treatment for her hyperthyroidism reacts terribly with gas pains and poops outside her box with vegetables and the fruit fillers contained in most foods. It seems impossible to get manufacturers to understand cats are OBLIGATE CARNIVORES and don't need human foods. This is as close as I can find and she is happy and feeling great! WITHOUT the PEAS !
