    Some like it, some not.

    By on

    As usual, with multiple cats in a house, there are some cats who like certain foods and some not so much. The ones who like this eat it with pleasure.

    This is not totally comparable to Pride by Instinct

    By on

    TWO stars is being rather generous to be honest. ALSO, apologies for what seems to be run on - ALL my spacing to make this more "readable" is removed during preview/posting. My cats have been eating Pride by Instinct, most of the "flavors" for years now (also Instinct raw - absolutely no dry food!) Due apparently to this line not being a big seller, it has been discontinued. Knowing very soon no Pride will be available, I ordered the chicken, tuna, salmon and rabbit offerings of THIS stuff (we were doing Pride lamb and duck as well before they disappeared, but these "flavors" are not offered in this line) to prepare for transition. Although it does seem visually and texturally similar TWO stars is being rather generous to be honest. ALSO, apologies for what seems to be run on - ALL my spacing to make this more "readable" is removed during preview/posting. My cats have been eating Pride by Instinct, most of the "flavors" for years now (also Instinct raw - absolutely no dry food!) Due apparently to this line not being a big seller, it has been discontinued. Knowing very soon no Pride will be available, I ordered the chicken, tuna, salmon and rabbit offerings of THIS stuff (we were doing Pride lamb and duck as well before they disappeared, but these "flavors" are not offered in this line) to prepare for transition. Although it does seem visually and texturally similar to the Pride minced (previously purchased the minced and flaked), I have to agree with some of the other comments - the smell of these is NOT like the Pride foods! The old smells would almost entice me to try it (never did), but these, yuck, they almost smell spoiled. If the cats would eat it, then fine, it isn't about what I like, but see below. The major problems I have with these besides the smell are: 1. It has NOT been well received by the cats (11). They would chow down on the Pride (a couple did not like the salmon), but this stuff? Not really. If they do not "perk" up eating this, then I will be forced to find some other food for them that all will like that isn't garbage food. :-( 2. The plastic cups/foil top could easily be damaged. One box arrived with one end of the box open. I have received a number of dented cans in the past, and these will not stand up to a lot of banging around! Damage can occur during processing (MFG), packing and shipping, both to and from Chewy (most of the dented cans showed NO damage to the shipping box or the cardboard tray they are in, so likely shipped from MFG this way.) 3. The foil tops can be challenging to open, especially for anyone with manual dexterity issues. Occasionally when the seal is finally, carefully broken, some gravy can "spit" out. 4. Previously only the 5.5 oz cans were ordered, due to the number of cats to feed here. These are only offered in a 3.5 oz cup, requiring ordering more AND the cost/ounce is higher (in general, larger quantity containers cost less per unit.) Example: Pride salmon 5.5oz autoship is $21.06, 12 cans results in about $0.32 per ounce. This salmon 3.5oz autoship is $20.41 for 12 cups, resulting in almost $0.49 per ounce. Just ordering 2 Pride vs 3 of this "new" improved stuff (total 132oz vs 126oz) is a little over $19 MORE for 6oz less food!!!! Buying in the quantity I need is going to seriously impact the bottom line. :-( :-( :-( 5. I have to be careful that one cat in particular does not get ANYTHING other than what she is used to or we ALL pay for it later, after food processing is done... :-( This has already seemed to impact her. :-( :-( :-O Overall, not pleased with this offering. I will, for now, continue to "try" it, mainly because it is the closest thing to what they have been eating, but if the cats do not take to this better soon, it will be time to find something else. The only positive noted for this "replacement" for the Pride line is that it will reduce the amount of trash. Our recycling does not include cans, and even with a compactor, they DO fill up a trash bag quickly! These can be stacked, so it takes up much less space in the trash bag (I let cans and these cups dry before putting them into bags, to reduce any odors.) However, this does NOT outweigh the fact that the cats do not seem to like it and the other issues listed above. … more

    Ragdoll loves it

    By on

    My 12 year old ragdoll began showing weight loss signs and unable to digest her food of another brand. I researched foods for her age and symptoms and this brand kept showing up in recommendations. I was nervous switching her but she loves it. Cleaned her plate and she has never done that. Hope to see some positive changes in her weight and digestion too.

    Instinct is a good brand

    By on

    This brand is a good brand. Simba has been eating their dried food since she was a kitten. Unfortunately my other cat who ate chicken just died this morning so I can't revue this item

    Cats used to like this product

    By on

    My cats used to love eating this so I auto-ship this every 2 months. In my recent auto-shipment of this wet cat food, something was off. My cats have not been eating this and would not even go near the food. I think the recipe for this has changed in the last few months.

    Only food my cat will eat but sometimes smells off

    By on

    My cat loves this and will only really not eat it if she's sick of the same flavor, but sometimes I'll get a batch of the chicken or salmon recipe that honestly just smells disgusting. It's not how it usually smells either because most of the time it smells fine like any cat or dog food would. The whole box of them will smell weird, too. I love this line of food and have never had a problem with the rabbit recipe, but a little concerned why some batches of the chicken, and also the salmon, smell worse than others. BUT, the cat has no complaints and this is the only food she will eat aside from Fancy Feast (blegh) so I am a big fan, too! Also, I love how amazing the ingredients are.
