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 farm-raised rabbit 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.

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.

    Cats pick out the raw and leave the rest

    By on

    This was a replacement option because cats loved the Simply Nourish Rabbit and Chicken - but will not eat the batch numbered 324A8171 best if used by Nov. 20, 2019. Cats do not like the Instinct brand near as much. I really hope that Simply Nourish hasn’t changed the formula but cannot get a straight answer from them. Chewy has been WONDERFUL with replacements and refunds. Cannot thank them enough.

    Kitty doesn't like it

    By on

    I was excited about this food because of the ingredients and high protein. My kitty ate it for a few days, now absolutely refuses to touch it. Would stay hungry all day until dinner, but won't touch this food.

    7 Cats a-counting

    By on

    After losing a dear furbaby 2 decades ago to a UTI, I switched to premium food and never looked back.I have 7 rescued loves now. A Nebelung, 2 Tuxedos, Twin Main Coones brothers, a Persian mix, and a semi long haired mix girl who's mom was picked up in the rain from the local Olive Garden parking lot when pregnant. These cats, Jinx, Sally, Thor, Loki, Emma, Bagheera and Gibson, range from 6 months to 11 years old. To make the raw boost nuggets last longer, as well as break open the smell and flavor, I cut them in half with regular scissors. When I first started with the raw boost (had used straight kibble), none of them were interested, but as soon as I cut it, it released the scent, that After losing a dear furbaby 2 decades ago to a UTI, I switched to premium food and never looked back.I have 7 rescued loves now.

When I first started with the raw boost (had used straight kibble), none of them were interested, but as soon as I cut it, it released the scent, that really did something for them to peak their curiosity and eventual satisfaction. I mix this with the Chicken kibble and raw boost, just because it is cheaper to buy the bigger bag of chicken, and they don't make the rabbit in a bigger size anymore. I will not use anything else for dry food. (I do supplement with wet canned food or straight real cooked chicken per Vet instructions after I lost my first baby), at least twice a week. If your cats are finicky, mix the food with wet food or your old food generously before trying the whole switch. Friends and family are literally stunned at how shiny, energetic, bright eyed, and sassy my cats are, they never smell the cat boxes, and remark on how gorgeous they all are every time. For those who find they have an excess of food, put in ziplock bag and put in freezer or fridge. This will preserve the integrity til you need to fill up again. … more

    Not what you get....

    I recieved a bag of this food but it didn't have not even one piece of the freeze dried chunks in it! Which is of course the main reason I bought it since my cats love them! Very disappointed...

    My cats' favorite flavor!

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    My cats LOVE the rabbit flavor. They also have the chicken version which they love but they prefer the rabbit more. I am very happy with the quality of food and it has helped my cats with sensitive stomachs!

    Good quality cat food obviously needs supplemental real meat and, plenty of freshwater but, the cats seem to really like it.
