Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandra lots of protein and limited ingredients for my sensitive tummy cats
I have one cat with a pretty sensitive stomach. I was trying to find out if he may be allergic to poultry. This is a great dry food with limited ingredients, no fillers but it is still higher in carbs then wet food as all dry cat food is. I give it to my 4 cats in small amounts once a day. They love it. They never had rabbit before so two of them didn't want it at first but I mixed a little Natures Variety chicken dry food in and got them to try it. They all love it. And not one of them is throwing it up. I feed them mostly wet food, Weruva, just the low carb varieties because I have one diabetic cat too. (Weruva is less expensive then Natures variety) Lower carb, higher protein is better for all of them. This is a real treat for them. A little on the expensive side. But I do think I will try some of the rabbit wet food that nature's variety makes since Weruva doesn't make wet food with Rabbit.

My cat is on a rabbit only diet. This product is a great find. Now he has a choice of raw or dry rabbit food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PegF Good stuff, cats like it
I bought this product because two of my cats had allergies to something in standard cat foods. The Nature's Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient foods are great for this. All my cats like this rabbit dry food, and eat it with gusto. This plus a few other high quality limited ingredient products have solved the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DSHCS Easy transition to LID
Used this in an attempt to reduce scratching if possible food allergy. Did a 10 day transition from dry chicken flavor to this rabbit flavor. The cat liked the food from the very beginning and there was no problem during the transition. Tried all sorts of replacements for treats, non of which the cat liked. Finally tried using this LID rabbit flavor and the cat like that for a treat. No more separate treats needed, just used the regular cat food.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AllergicAva An expensive mistake
Like many others considering this food, I have a cat with multiple food allergies (chicken, turkey, duck, egg). I had been feeding Orijen Six Fish, which they all liked, but one of the other cats was having occasional loose stools, so I wanted to try them on a mammal-based protein.
I purchased the small bag of this food first; it met with approval from all three kitties. I mixed it with the Orijen and transitioned them gradually over a period of two weeks. All seemed to be going well, so I bought the 12 lb bag. Within a few days, and once the cats were only eating Nature's Variety Instinct L.I.D. Rabbit Meal, all three developed consistent loose stools. On top of that, after about a week, the cats all began to lose their taste for the new food, and were losing weight.
That was the final straw, so I went out and purchased another fish-based food that I can get locally (TOTW Canyon Creek). Within a day or two, the cats were eating, and pooping, normally again.
This cat food did not work for my furry family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AllergicinSF High quality food for cats with food intolerances/allergies
Ever since discovering one of our rescue cats has allergies to fish and poultry (chicken, turkey, duck) after several bouts of eosinophilic plaque and vasculitis on the ear, we've had a heck of a time finding quality foods with a single protein source. So glad we found this brand and limited ingredient line of foods! Both our cats love it, and even though it is relatively more expensive, when you think about how short a time we have our pets in our lives, it's worth every penny. Note that Nature's Variety makes this formula with ONLY rabbit protein, and two other formulas (raw boost and grain-free) that contains rabbit, turkey, chicken and fish meal; get the Limited Ingredient type if you have a cat like ours that has allergies to these proteins. The Limited Ingredient is hard to find in big-box stores, so very happy to find here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alli Great for treats
My cats are fed wet food but I use Nature's Variety Rabbit Meal dry formula as occasional treats, which they love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sally Cats love it but....
I started feeding this to see if it would help my cat who has allergies. They loved the new rabbit flavor. Unfortunately, it didn't do anything for Ginger's allergies. However, it has another side effect we could do without. It causes very smelly stools. I never had this problem before. Since it isn't fixing my cats allergies I will probably go back to nature's variety weight management flavor.
