    Likes the gravy so much...

    By TuTu on Sep 7, 2019

    She liked the gravy so much that when I cut the nice chunks a bit smaller, she would eat them as well. Thank you Chewy for recommending this food to me.

    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.

    Just okay food

    I thought this was going to be an item the cat would love, and the cat won't eat it. Oh well

    Cat didn't like it

    I have her four pouches (over a few days) to see if she'd change her mind but nope, would always lick up all the gravy and leave the meat.

    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.

    Healthy and GREAT Tasting

    By on

    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.

    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.
