About Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Cat Food

Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Cat Food
1 ANIMAL PROTEIN

1 ANIMAL PROTEIN

The ingredient list is purposefully simple for pets with food sensitivities. It focuses on one animal protein and one vegetable—versus the mix of each you'll find in most pet foods.

SIMPLE AND ESSENTIAL

SIMPLE AND ESSENTIAL

Sometimes what's not included is just as important as what is. Our recipes are made with cage-free poultry or farm-raised rabbit and always made without grain, dairy, eggs, potato, corn, wheat, soy or artificial ingredients.

Pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece

Pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece

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

About Instinct

Instinct believes deeply that it's up to them to find a way to make it possible for more people to feed their pets the pure, real nutrition that only comes from raw. 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.

    A favorite of the cats, but shame on the company

    By Ildon on Sep 8, 2021

    The price on this particular variety just keeps going up and up and up. My previous order was all of 3 weeks ago and already the price has risen by just over 20% compared to then, and before that it was a 15% increase. This is absolutely ridiculous, even compared to the usual things people are doing to screw others over during the pandemic.

    The cats think they're treats MUAHAHA

    By okiDokiLoki on Sep 8, 2021

    I fill up a kong treat ball with this kibble and they think they are getting a ball full of treats! Keeps them busy and their fur is so nice and soft after they started this food. It is a little smelly, but I think that is what entices them!

    be patient! this food works!!!

    By GemmasMom on May 29, 2021

    Ok so my cat was originally feral. She was found on the streets of Okc out in the hood where known gang affiliations were prevalent. No one wanted her because some one had personally tattooed her. Yup. Human tattooed her. Tattooed 918 on her inner hip. With much love and care she is the sweetest kitten ever. However I have battled 6 yrs of the most awful stinkiest poops ever. I always wondered how could the cutest 7lb thing put out something so stinky that could literally wake the dead? It was bad. It would gag me out the room. I took her in for her yearly check up last year, and I mentioned this issue because it was driving me nuts. I wanted to be able to sleep without being woke up from her Ok so my cat was originally feral. She was found on the streets of Okc out in the hood where known gang affiliations were prevalent.

I wanted to be able to sleep without being woke up from her stinkys. I feel like Gemma knew this because she would always look at me with the eyes of humiliation. We share a bedroom her litterbox included because my roommate has a dog who antagonizes her. Anyways, the vet mentioned she thinks that an allergy to chicken might be the culprit since a month or two before I had brought her in for this fever blister thing that was like on her mouth. She factored that in with what I was saying and said well since she was a stray she may require a limited ingredient high protein diet and she may very well need to stay awake from chicken. The last year I have tried blue buffalos version. Natural balance. Nulo. And a few others. And let me just say, this brand take the cake. It’s the best. However do be patient with it. I usually give it about two bags of food before I make a decision on whether or not I’m seeing any improvement. Instinct did make her poops not improve stinky wise for a while. But once I started her second bag of food. I was in shock!! Suddenly I noticed I hadn’t smelled her poop in a week. I thought the day would never come! We now share a space without any issue. … more

    Stinky Poops but healthy poops

    By Malley on May 19, 2021

    I foster and I have one kitty who always had soft stools and this food greatly helped!!! (She’s had many clean fecals but she just has a sensitive tummy. I suspect chicken is the cause.). I’m thankful for the better poops but......holy moly her poops smell sooooo bad! The whole room smells. I need to find a compromise.

    Sensitive belly

    By Switch on May 26, 2021

    So far so good, took a few weeks but I can see a huge improvement on his fur and poop.. He’s no longer scratching and having diarrhea. I must say, the food smell is pretty strong but he loves it and he’s happy so I can deal with it..

    Cat HATES this kibble!!

    By raychulcee on Apr 28, 2021

    My cat hates absolutely everything from this brand. I was trying to get him used to eating it and he just wouldn't eat anything. Doesn't matter if his favorite wet food was with it or not. He just wouldn't touch it. Just don't waste your money if you have a picky cat!!

    Excellent food specially for my picky eaters

    By CatDaddy on Apr 19, 2021

    We have 4 cats and finding a food that 3 out of the 4 will and can eat is quite a problem. This limited ingredient recipe meets the requirements for the one with food allergies and our picky eaters love it! Sadly I cannot get one food for all 4 as our Persian queen requires a special urinary formula.

    My Cat wont eat it

    By Princess on Apr 2, 2021

    I was wondering if you change the ingredients in the Instinct cat food? My cat has been on this food for quite sometime and she will not eat it at all since my last order. I put chicken and fish with it like I normally do. She wouldn't eat the fish or chicken when in the food

    Solved diarrhea problem!

    By Julie on Feb 26, 2021

    My cat loves this food, and he now has solid stools. I tried Blue Buffalo Blissful Belly and my two cats wouldn't touch it. I then tried Pro Plan Sensitive Stomach Turkey formula, my cats liked it fine, but Tegar still had loose stool. Now with this food, both my cats love it, and Tegar finally has solid stools.
