Questions & Answers

22 Customer Questions


Do I need to add water with the food? Is the same that the bites, that I saw on a YouTube review, when the lady defrosted, and added water?
Answer by ChewyDec 03, 2020
This food does not require water to be added. It can be added as a way to add moisture to your cat's diet.

How many 1-cup servings are in this bag?
Answer by ChewyMay 18, 2020
This recipe contains approximately 4.75 cups in a 9.5 ounce bag.

Can you leave this in a cat dish as you would regular dry food, or will it perish quicker?
Answer by ChewyFeb 11, 2021
The Freeze Dried Meals are shelf stable and can be left in the bowl like kibble.

What is the phosphorus? Is there a more detailed analysis somewhere?
Answer by ChewyApr 11, 2022
This recipe has a phosphorus content of 1.02% on an as-fed basis and 1.09% on a dry matter basis.

Kitty approved

I first wanted to start out by saying that so far my cat has seen improvement in his bowel issues he has a really bad reaction to the dry kibble tht he was on when we first got him, sorry about the less than desirable details but I feel it is important for other pet lovers that are considering making the switch, he would have 3-4 BMs per day they smelled horrible and is was explosive I know it was painful for him, also really bad gas, and just feeling super, we only started him on 25% mixed with his old food and he would just eats around the old food- barely touches it. His tummy feel much better and has already (only 3 days on new food) decreased his BMs to 1x per day, and it is the closest to solid that I have seen from him since we have adopted him. He has eliminated his old food from his diet and now I just smash the freeze dried food and mix it with broth and he gobbled it up and he hates wet food so this is great will give more updates once he is on this for over a week

Lifesaving Food

My cat is going through some serious health issues, where he is hardly eating and it is the Instinct raw meals that are getting through this tough time. I put a few on top of his food, and he starts eating. I do have to replenish several times, until his pate is gone. I am grateful there is something he likes, so he does not become malnourished.

If you don't mind the begging...

My cat, a farm rescue, LOVES the Instinct freeze-dried chicken recipe so much she cries when I go near the container. Normally she's a very Zen, calm, girl. Hearing her plead for these tells me she's in love.

Great Quality Freeze-Dried Food

I enjoy the ingredients and the dry matter analysis of this food. The pellets do a great job at soaking up water without becoming soggy which my cat loves. This is an excellent freeze-dried cat food once hydrated.

My cats LOVE these

My cats are very stubborn so at first they wouldn't even eat them, but after a few weeks they now love these and beg for them! I love that i can leave it out in their bowls when i'm not home and it's so much healthier for my cats then dry food.

Created a monster

I bought this as treats for our sweet boy, he seemed to really like them. Left for work and come home to the bag chewed to shreds (he's never done this) So honestly 10/10 would recommend! We are now trying to use them to train him since he loves them so much.

Great additive

Got this for my aging cat who needs some extra enticing to eat. Instead of having a million different cans around I can rehydrate some and then add it to his food.

Not so great

Unfortunately, T.J. Has definitely rated this all paws down.

Great Training Treats

I like that they are light, don't have to be refrigerated and last a while with our 2 dogs.

Cat approvec

My 2 picky cats absolutely love it. 1 usually only eats wet food & the other only dry food. I give it dry as a snack. They both finish whatever I give & meow for more!
