Description

Serve tailored nutrition with Instinct by Nature's Variety Raw Boost Indoor Grain-Free Recipe with Real Chicken Dry Cat Food. A better way to feed kibble, this high animal protein, boosted nutrition features bites of freeze-dried raw meat throughout. Created to unlock your indoor cat’s potential to thrive, and put the benefits of raw nutrition into every bowl, it’s made with cage-free chicken as the first ingredient for strong, lean muscles. There’s fewer calories to support the less active lifestyle of an indoor cat, and the highly digestible protein plus probiotics offers stool odor control.

Key Benefits
  • Boosted nutrition for indoor cats with high-protein kibble + freeze-dried raw.
  • Cage-free chicken is the first ingredient so it’s packed with animal protein for strong, lean muscles.

  • Never contains any grain, potato, corn, wheat, soy, by-product meal, artificial colors or preservatives.
  • Made in the USA with the finest ingredients from around the world.

The Pure, Real Nutrition of Raw Is In Everything Instinct Does

Instinct's Responsibility as The Raw Brand

LEAD WITH RAW

It all started with Instinct's raw pet food. Since the beginning, they've led with raw because they know the good it can do. They're rewriting the rules of pet food and championing raw nutrition to bring its superior benefits to all that they do.

KEEP IT REAL

Delicious and nutritious pet food should only use real ingredients. For Instinct, this means all-natural, real meat, fruits and vegetables, with nothing artificial.

MAKE IT SIMPLE

Feeding raw should be simple, and it should easily fit into your everyday routine. Instinct believes raw should be accessible to pet parents so every pet can experience the benefits of raw nutrition.

DO IT TOGETHER

Instinct believes in the power of raw nutrition. It only makes sense to share it. Together with local shelters and volunteer efforts nationwide we’re on a mission to transform the lives of all pets.

MAKE IT BETTER

Instinct has never been afraid to challenge the status quo of pet nutrition. They continuously redefine what better means—always pushing their standards of nutrition to raise the bar in pet food.

Pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece

They know that if they can get the nutrition of raw into more bowls, they'll transform the lives of more pets. And that's really why they do what they do.

    Meal and a Treat!

    By on

    My cat loves this food! She thinks the boost bites are treats and always eats those first. She had very dry and sensitive skin when we got her, especially after her spay. After switching her foods and feeding her this for almost a year, her coat looks so much healthier and her skin seems to be less sensitive and itchy.

    Ingredients are important

    By on

    After an expensive allergy test. We found that the food Lucy was eating had ingredients she was allergic to. After an extensive search we found this brand. Nothing she is allergic to in these ingredients. She specially likes the big chunks of dried meat that come in the bag with the smaller bits. She seems to swallow the smaller bits so bigger pieces would be better. The only reason I didn't give 5 starts. Also my daughter said her poop smells worse than when she had the other food. No issues so far and its been almost 2 weeks.

    My cat absolutely loves this food. He first looks for the "raw" pieces, and then finishes with the kibble.

    I think it changed

    By on

    Our cat won’t eat this and there is barely any freeze dried raw in the bag which is her favorite part. Maybe the brand changed its food?

    great idea, but my cat only eats the raw part LOL

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    Yet another food not getting eaten by my crazy picky kitty! She loves the raw part (freeze dried), doesn't eat the kibble at all. I will definitely get some of the Instinct freeze dried raw for her.

    Cats can't get enough

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    My cats LOVE this kibble. I switched them over from another brand due to them having digestive issues. I had to stop free feeding my cats because they love this brand so much and started to over eat! I have tried a lot of cat food brands but this one is by far my favorite due to quality and taste.
