My cat vomits frequently and stopped eating it

My roommate told me about this. In the first week, my cat sort of likes it, but with time, she starts to throw up. When she started to stop eating it, we initially assumed that she was simply trying to vomit the hairball. Only when we give her the cans at night does she eat. She threw up every bit of dry food she consumed, we discovered tonight. There is unquestionably an issue with this batch, or perhaps the cat chow is no longer of the same high caliber as my friend's.

In the Middle

For the first two bags my cat enjoyed the food but started to refuse to eat the raw-freeze dried bits by the third bag. Now she has started to refuse to eat the kibble as a whole. It has not made her nauseous thankfully! But thought it worth a review just in case any other cat-parents noticed the same behavior. She is 7 years old.

My cat has a black chin!

I used to feed my cat Orijen red meat, and after trying this cat food, I started getting acne/dark spots on my chin!

My cat's fur is so SOFT

Since we have switched to feeding our cat this food his fur has become almost overwhelming soft. He is so sleek and shiny!

She likes it

I have a long-haired tabby she's always been 8lbs and her favorite food is like friskies and I feel like it's the equivalent of eating fruit loops for every meal so I switched it and got this. She likes it and I think she likes the little dried bits in it. She's the best cat ever and I would love it if she lived forever. But in the meantime... I try to feed her a combination of nutritious and yummy food. I also rotate between a small blue buffalo tastefuls and Sheba cuts wet food in the morning each day. Anyway, good job Instinct!

funky smell

My two cats that will eat any food sure did not like this stuff. When I first opened the bag the smell was pretty awful. I tried mixing it in with their old food first and that did not help. They walk up to the bowl and even from a foot or so away they can smell it and they walk away. The freeze dried bits are quite large and just kind of strange. Very shocking to see my hungry boy turn down food. My cats are upset with me and plotting revenge.

Not a fan of this

I've been feeding Instinct with no issues and thought I would try the raw boost. 4 cats ate it OK at first but eventually didn't seem to like it at all. One csat developed bloody diarrhea and another just very gassy. I won't be using this bag or feeding g it again. There were no other changes to their diet so I can only attribute the issues to this food change.

Great product

I have a cat that had to be changed to a raw diet. She loves this. All five of my cats are eating it.
