Rated 5 out of 5 by Chloe123 Cats LOVE it !!
I switched to this food after extensive research on all brands and chose this one for the lack of recalls and excellent ratings. My 8 yr old girl stopped eating the vet recommended high end food she had been on for 7 yrs I researched the food she was on after noting her coat looked dull and she was lazier than usual. I was shocked after reading the issues people were having with this other food. I immediately pulled her off.. no transition due to the health risk of the other food and switched to Nature's Variety..Both of my cats LOVE Nature's Variety rawboost !!! Within a month my girls eyes were clearer, her coat shined again and now she plays as if she is a kitten. Well worth the money !!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Natures Variety !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Berlyn My cats LOVE this food
I used to feed Wellness Grain Free and Earthborn Holistic and my cats were happy. I bought a bag of Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost and now my spoiled little pride won’t eat anything else. If I try to switch back to either of my previous foods they pick at the food in their bowls and pester us constantly as if their bowl are empty. They all love it so much that I have to ration it out like candy to kids. Two of my cats even prefer it to the small amount of wet food that I feed each evening. I keep my dry food in an airtight container and do notice a difference in the amount of Raw Boost pieces in each bag, but my cats love the food either way, so it’s not a big deal to me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Captain They are not consistent with their product.
We have been feeding raw boost for a year. They are not consistent with their product one bag will have no freeze dried raw and the next will be all freeze dried raw and lack of guaranteed analysis for a high end feed. I contacted the company and received no reply I will be changing cat food. We love Chewy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaineCoonMama This dry food is a hit
My two Maine Coons love this dry cat food. They think the raw boost bites are treats! I love that it's grain-free and so healthy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by 5rescues cats love the raw bits and eat them first.
Major complaint is the inconsistency of the amount of raw bits in the bags. Was told company claims that controlled amounts are added to each bag. If that is true, and I do not believe it is, something is wrong with the quality control of the machinery dispensing the raw bits. If I get another bag with a sparce amount of raw bits, I will switch to another brand. Have already switched from instinct raw bits dog food to Merrick raw bits and have so far been very pleased with quantity and consistency of raw bits in each bag received. Instinct manufacturers need to listen up. Am on the search already for another company that makes dry raw bits for cats and when I do, I will switch brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pat1 Good for sensitive tummies.
I have two kittens that came to me with severe diarrhea from intestinal parasites. I got those taken care of with the help of my vet, but had a hard time settling their little bowels down. Instinct Raw Boost is the only kibble that I have been able to feed them that hasn't exacerbated the situation. They have tolerated it well, and really enjoy it. I love it as I no longer have to cook chicken for them every other day, and they have something to nibble on during the night, and between feedings.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mal27 Cats don't like it
I was very excited to receive this food. I want my cats to eat a healthier diet and this looked great. Unfortunately none of them like it. Even my kitten who is a food hound turns his nose up at it. Also, one of my other cats had constant diarrhea. I had no choice but to switch him back to his other food. He has been fine since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MeezerMommy The BEST dried kitty food on the market!
I have fed my 4 Siamese and 1 Havana Brown quality (grain-free, byproduct free, "Animal" anything-free) dried food, as well as wet foods for several years since I brought them to the US in 2009. I STILL had issues with the Havana pulling his fur out.. he was always "dandruffy", and two of the Siamese who would over-groom a front leg until it was sore, scabby and bald. Also a Meezer with an auto-immune chronic eye condition necessitating regular cleaning and treatment with eyebright drops. No more! The first time I opened the first bag, they went nuts! After a week of feeding them via the Aikiou cat feeder (stops bolting then vomiting in my cats), our "Fat Boy" had gained a waist, Jake, our skin-and-bone boy was putting on weight, Harvey the Havana stopped plucking, the bald legs started growing fur, and we saw a visble reduction in Bodie's eye inflammation. So much so that the mask had started to darken again.. amazing! Harvey's short brown coat has always felt "greasy", but since we started with the Raw Instinct, it feels as smooth as silk and no more dandruff! By the way, the cost, per kitty, per week, is around $3.00. You can "do" cheaper than that of course, but for me, seeing my cats looking so beautiful and healthy, is worth every cent!
