    Cats LOVE it

    By on

    I got this for my Savannah and my Bengal. My Savannah eats 2 raw chicken legs and 1 cup of this food a day. She has an illness and this is working great. I got my Bengal to eat this too instead of Kibble. So far so good, just wish it came in a bigger bag. My first order a bag was sliced open and dumped in the bottom of the box with dry ice. I tossed the bag also, have not heard from Chewy yet.

    My kitties love this stuff. I’d say the only downside is that it has to stay frozen until use. My cats don’t like to wait for it to thaw.

    Highly disappointed

    By on

    I was super disappointed, I feed my cat Instinct both wet and dry food and he loves that but the quality of the raw seems poor to me. The food seems ok when the bag is first opened but the packaging is so poor that sealing the bag does nothing to keep it "fresh". The freshness quickly degrades within hours once its opened and sealed, becoming a chalky color. I threw the 1st bag out, figured it may have been a fluke since my cat ate it the first time I opened the bag and gave him his first serving but refused to eat it after. Tried it again with another bag and same thing happened. I wouldn't recommend the food to anyone sadly even though I love Instinct.

    Healthy for a good price.

    By on

    My cat is getting old, 12 years going on 13. Ive been looking for a good quality food that was comparable to the DIY raw I was feeding him, as doing it on my own took up too much time and money. He absolutely loves this food and his poop hardly smells anymore. Before this on kibble, his poo would nearly send us out of the house xD. I would recommend this to anyone!

    My cat's don't like it

    By on

    I bought this in hopes of giving it to my calico that has allergies to cat food. I figured I would give it a try since I have five cats and one would probably like it. Nope, I was wrong, none of my cats will even try it, they sniff it and walk away.

    Absolutely not a "raw" product.

    By on

    For a "raw" food, it was chalky, which was really weird. When I added a tablespoon of water to the food to help mush it together, it looked more like cornstarch in water that was pink in color, which was super bizarre. My cats eat Rad Cat and Natural Pet Pantry, and those are beautiful raw foods. This one was just absolutely not raw compared to those two brands. I was really disappointed because I think that Instinct does make some good quality items, but this one was just not one of them. My cats didn't even touch it. They would rather wait for their next meal then even touch it.
