    My boys love this minced food. I was disappointed when the cans were discontinued and delighted to see it in this size. Perfect for a meal for my two boys and they love the Tuna flavor.

    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. Same review for all 4 "flavors" currently offered. 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 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.

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

    Our 14 year old cat, loves this. she is very picky and gets sick of food quickly. We put a little spoonful on top of her regular wet food and she is a happy camper.

    My Bella doesn't like it

    By on

    I bought 3 cases, different flavors, and she just sniffs and walks away. I have to add dried tuna flakes to get her to eat this brand. She loves the Royal Canin canned foods, Blue Diamond and Purina Beyond.

    Healthy Pet Food

    My cat is very persnickety and this is one for the books as she loves it very much. It took quite a while to find a wet food she likes besides only wanting dry food

    High Quality Food!

    By on

    My cat loves the tuna recipe instinct. I've tried many other brands of tuna and other fish type quality foods, but she likes the instinct better and I like how Nature variety does their minced pieces, smaller. Outstanding ingredients and I will continue to feed this as long as the quality always stays the same.
