    FINALLY!!!

    By Jeff on Aug 12, 2020

    Wow was this a battle!!! Our carbohydrate intolerant Bombay decided after 8 years of the SAME food, he wouldn’t eat it. At $2.50 a pouch, and about four tries and two days, using pouches from alternate batches, he was done. Since putting him on a grain free wet diet measured at 9 Oz a day, his coat looked Wow was this a battle!!! Our carbohydrate intolerant Bombay decided after 8 years of the SAME food, he wouldn’t eat it. At $2.50 a pouch, and about four tries and two days, using pouches from alternate batches, he was done. Since putting him on a grain free wet diet measured at 9 Oz a day, his coat looked as beautiful as the day we met and, he once heart condition always undetectable WITHOUT using the pills. So, tried the hard food version of the wet, just at the beginning of the quarantine and pandemic. He gained three a pounds and grew an undercoat that required the furmerator, generating enough excess hair i could sent it to Cher for a wig. So went back to soft. HAD to go retail and buy individual packs and cans to see what was going to get him through his pandemic boredom. He was “ok” with canned pate but the litterbox wasn’t; like liked some of the organic gourmet grain free choices but didnt vocalize or act like an egg time watching the digital clock waiting for the 4 to show up so he could SCREAM announcing it was time. Finally tried this and it’s off the hook. He’s DEFINITELY founder of the duck, wouldn’t touch the rabbit and looked at me as if I was an idiot for trying and definitely took to the chicken well. But the duck...back to his Oprah good weight, beautiful coat and no murmur. BTW, Chewy was so gracious about a refund for two months of unopened former food. NOW we have our boy back and Chewy is 15% less than retail! Thanks Chewy! … more

    Unanimous rejection

    By Debrajmac on Sep 14, 2019

    I had high hopes for this as I have high regard for Instinct line of cat food. Unfortunately, neither of my two cats would even give it a taste. One sniff, and that was that.

    Ducks—Run For Your Life!

    By on

    My cat truly loves the Duck Recipe by Instinct. This was recommended by my Vet to put in her food (she has a sensitive stomach and is on Hill’s ID canned and kibble). I think just like people are beloved pets get bored with what they eat. My vet said to try either the rabbit or duck. She enjoyed the rabbit but eventually tired of it. She now enjoys the duck like gravy on top of her kibble and gives me “the look“ when I need to put more down.

    Healthy and GREAT Tasting

    I have a finicky cat who doesn’t like change. We have been having a huge problem with him eating- as we have had to change his diet- although this is just a food topper- he REALLY loves this.

    Real food for real cats

    By on

    When it comes to wet food, my cat only likes the chunky stuff. Although I'm not a fan of individual packets, this works well for her. She doesn't like fish, only the duck and rabbit.

    This meal topper is a hit!

    By on

    My cat is on a restricted diet of either duck, rabbit or venison limited ingredient foods & likes only certain duck or rabbit. This particular duck topper is great, lots of gravy & I can mix in her freeze dried rabbit so she eats it all.

    Dogs love these, too!

    By on Top 10 Contributor

    I've previously used the Instinct freeze-dried rabbit cat food as training treats for my dog and, in search for a food topper that doesn't contain chicken or beef, decided to give these a try. The ingredients are almost identical to the dog formulas, and DL-Methionine (and taurine in the freeze-dried food) are just as healthy for dogs as cats. I gave these a try and they are a huge hit! My super-finicky dog has now gone over a week finishing every meal (almost a record for her) with a pouch mixed in breakfast and frozen raw mixed in with dinner. She does seem a little more excited for the rabbit formula, but snarfs down the duck all the same. I rotate flavors to keep her interested.

    Purest cat food you could find!

    By on

    We love this duck recipe! My mom and dad bought these delicious little pouches and we meow for joy whenever we see the packages or even better, when we hear them opening! The gravy and duck is AMAZING! My mom and dad even talk about how the limited ingredients and sourcing is unbeatable... whatever that means... I just know that it’s.... Scrumptious! ~Furbie

    Cats like it

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    My cats liked all of these new Instinct packets. I tried every flavor and they ate it up. The meat is a chewy meat though and not easy to mash. Some of my kitties prefer a pate and not chunks, so I try to mash the food.
