    My cats eat it

    By lethomson on Nov 9, 2021

    I have 4 cats, 1 of which has a chicken allergy and cannot eat any chicken at all. This particular food they really like. It is similar to Buffalo Blue type food with the flavor enhancer chunks. These freeze-dried raw bites they seem to really like. It is more expensive then other foods, but if your cat eats it your are happy.

    Cats Love This Food

    By metzfromnc on Aug 29, 2021

    I'm always happy to find a good quality grain-free food my cats love. This one fits the bill. I have 3 cats and all of them love this dry food. I don't leave it out. I portion it out throughout the day between their wet food. I'm absolutely thrilled with this dry food.

    Not for me

    By Perfect on Sep 2, 2021

    Cats refused to eat it! Neither of my adult cats would go near this food, even when their bowl of different brand cat food (I've been trying to go healthier!) ran out they still refused to touch this food.

    Good so far; hopeful

    By LeRiverhawk on Jun 10, 2021

    I've done hours (within years) of personal 'research' for to find cat foods (wet and dry) that have whole ingredients, proper nutrients, no fillers/dyes/grains, affordable and adequate quantity for the price. Instinct Brand offers what I seek, however even so, my cat is has the authority of deciding if it's eatable and that often leaves me highly frustrated when yet another food leaves me financially tapped out for the month and still no solution to providing a proper food for my boy. This one, he's eating it! I give it 1 star less than perfect as the kibble size and shape could improve, these kibble are disk shape and harder to swallow for cats with teeth and gum issues.

    Cat eats it

    By Hueychief on Jun 21, 2021

    I was purchasing another brand grain free cat food at a local pet store. The store was always out of the cat vitamins so I finally decided to pull the plug on them and try ordering from Chewy. Good experience so far and my Maine Coon eats the food.

    The BEST cat food ever!!

    By iloveeeeecats76 on Apr 15, 2021

    My cat absolutely loves this food. I have tried the chicken flavor too but the salmon is his favorite. If you don’t mind the strong fish smell when you first put it in the dish it’s awesome!! It is a bit pricey but lasts a long time since I only have one cat. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for the perfect food to feed their cats!
