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.

My 4 year old cat has had some food allergies and we have tried all the brands. She doesn't like most dry foods and is picky about wet food texture. We had no problem with either of the Natures Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Rabbit. She always wants more. She is tolerating this food well and seems to be back to her old self! We will continue to purchase this brand and flavor. We will continue to purchase it from Chewy.com.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kitty Good ingredients but my cats stopped eating it.
Although the product seems good after about 3 weeks my cats stopped eating it. They are fussy and one is allergic to all protein except rabbit so this appeared to be a great product for him. Unfortunately he won't eat it anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mar189 A protein change became necessary
Due to a need for a protein change for my cat I had to search for a new product. I was surprised at how quickly my cat adapted to the taste difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daphne89 Cat has allergies that have started recently
My cat has developed allergies. Under my veterinarians recommendations I chose the limited ingredients rabbit diet.
After two weeks on the diet she has almost stopped grooming herself excessively.
Both of my cats took to the diet very readily.(They are very picky eaters)

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 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!

I have three cats. One of whom has suffered from loose bowels and semi-chronic vomiting, hasn't been enough to slow him down too much, but still suffering. I have tried a lot of different products and after a bit of research I decided to give this a shot. My husband kind of groaned when I switched yet again, but I did start to see an improvement, and his brother (who had previously only liked fish based foods) liked it too.
His loose bowels are a thing of the past and while he'll still vomit, it's down to a once every other month instead of a couple times a week. His coat is much nicer now too - I saw some improvement when I switched to grain free with his coat, but the other foods still had the other issues.
