My picky cats love it!!

I guess all cats are different based on the reviews. But my cats love the minced formula. I have 3 picky cats that refuses to eat the pate version, let alone roast chicken that I give to them as a treat. 2 will eat the kibble IF they're hungry enough and thats a big IF but when it comes to the minced formula they'll go running for it....all 4 of them! I also subscribe to smalls which is fresh human grade cat food that gets delivered to our door. Yes, my cats are spoiled! They'll eat that too but somehow they take a liking to the minced formula the most.

Disappointingly gross

I had high hopes for this, in fact I thought I had discovered the perfect wet cat food, but nope. The lid was easy to remove. But under the lid…! What are those little black specks? Why does the food look so unappetizing? What’s that gloopy gelatine stuff? Nothing about it looked good. It’s supposedly minced? No. Looks basically like a pâté, which my cats loathe. Still, I persevered. Scooped some out onto their little dishes. Delivered the dishes along with my usual feeding-the-cats song. Mentally crossed my fingers as the cats sniffed at the sad-looking offering on their plates. Tika eats anything and everything. Found as a kitten with her brother Mijo hiding under a water tank, she’s a bit food insecure. I’ve never seen her turn down a meal. Until now. Mijo listlessly lipped at his dish. Ate about a quarter of it. I apologized profusely to them both. How could I insult them with this terrible food. You know how cats are. I bought a case of the rabbit flavor too, but haven’t offered it to the cats yet. I’m steeling my nerve for the reproachful looks. I don’t feel hopeful they will like it. Will probably donate the lot.

Good food for cats.

Both my cats can’t get enough of this. As soon as I put it down in their bowls, they come running to eat it

good ingredients

I've had to scramble to find alternative foods for my senior & somewhat picky cat with supply shortages. This was one of the foods I tried, he likes it, I like the ingredients AND the fact that it's made in the U.S. It is a bit pricey, but worth it to me.

Cat liked it well enough!

It is 3.5 oz so it was a little bit more than the serving size my cat is used to. I think she really liked the extra helping (she normally eats 3.0 oz each meal). The food itself was fine! Seems relatively consistent and the cat eats most of it. The only thing is that it is in a plastic container, so it lost a star for that. However! The packaging was actually really easy to open, and stackable. I prefer the metal cans since they are recyclable, and I have to throw these out since my city doesn't recycle these types of containers.

It's a hit!

The crew is happy with this purchase! They seem to like it almost as much as the rabbit - even the cat who doesn't like chicken.

Another miss for the home team

I'm batting 1000. Not one of our three cats believe I have their preferences foremost in my mind while shopping. All three took one sniff and walked away.

Picky eater loves it

I was told that my new kitty only liked dry food. I gradually introduced her to this food. I had to give her pills and this as the least traumatic way. Dry food wouldn’t work as well. Now , she has this twice a day with a little instinct dry food in a separate bowl occasionally. Her fur is getting softer too. Better than the Science Diet dry they were giving her.

this food helped my cat with his GI problem

My vet recommended switching to a “mammal” diet after my young cat started displaying gross symptoms that he is allergic to chicken. This Instinct Minced Rabbit wet food, coupled with the Instinct Rabbit dry food, quickly made a noticeable difference in his well-being! My other two cats are also eating this food happily, though it did take a couple of weeks for one to warm up to it. The cost of this food is a little high for our household, but it’s worth every penny to provide what is essentially preventative medicine in the form of food. Even in a metro area with several pet supply stores within driving distance, this food is scarce on the shelves, so I’m immensely grateful that, though Chewy, this food is relatively easy to procure.

A nice change

We usually get instinct chicken toppers but tried this; our cats love it! A nice alternative
