Found our new food!
I have been searching for the best food for my cat. I ordered some premium subscription foods but Parker wouldn't touch them even when I added water. I decided to try Instinct and I'm sure glad I did! No transition was needed...she loved it from her first bite. She doesn't particularly care for the raw pieces but I break them up and she'll eat them last. I'm very happy with Instinct and my cat even knows the bag now. She'll paw the bag whenever her dish is empty, lol. I'll keep buying this wonderful food.
Cats Love It
I purchased this because we have a rescue that has discovered the love of food. She is apparently making up for the first 2 years of her life that weren't so great. We got quite a stern lecture from the vet because she has gained almost 2 lbs (!) in the year we have had her, and is starting to look like a weeble wobble with legs. I did some research and this food was one of the most highly recommended for weight loss. She still begs for food every time a human walks into the kitchen, but she loves this food and has transitioned very rapidly from the old kibble. Our other cats like it too, unfortunately, since that makes it hard to judge how much she has eaten and the boys are supposed to be on CKD food. Our feeding situation has gotten quite complicated! This food is a solid hit, though, so I would recommend it for any picky eaters!
High quality food
I'm reluctant to review this food because my experience has nothing to do with its quality. I live with very fussy cats when it comes to food. What mine won't eat yours may gobble up. The fact is this food is of high quality so it is worth trying.
Our 2 cats love Instinct Raw Boost Kibble & Raw
They threw up pretty violently after eating Hills Science Diet—diet formula. So we switched to this and they began begging for food again.
Caused expensive urinary tract issues
I'd been slowly switching my two sweet fat boys from Ultimate Protein to Healthy Weight. Within 2 weeks of me going to 75% Healthy Weight, one of them developed cystitis and the other, full blown urethra blockage. Whatever this is, it apparently leads to high urine pH. Too bad because I really like the brand.
My 2 cats did not approve
They are only eating the white pieces of meat, which is probably 10% of the whole bag. I was looking for a healthy food to start giving them, but this is not it.
Not a fan of the protein boosts
I was looking for a high fiber option. This brand is more than I would normally spend and I don’t think it was worth it. My cat likes the kibble portion but is repulsed by the “protein boosts.” Whenever she smells them she jerks her head back. I just throw them out. I know they’re not meant for me but I also think they have a strange smell. We’ll finish out this bag but I won’t buy this kind again. May give the brand another try if I can find one without these boosts.
Yummy for my tummy
My cats love this food. They run to be first to the bowl in order to get the "marshmallows". They just love the freeze-dried raw bits. Since they are indoor cats it also helps keep them at a reduced weight.
So far so good for my chubster
After a year of having our cat on a "diet" he gained another pound and now tops out at a healthy 18# - yes, he is a big cat, but probably about 3-4 lbs overweight. Our vet gave us several recommendations and I'm pleased with how things are going so far. He loves the little tasty bits and does pick those out first. But he seems to get full more easily, appetite has decreased and he's not acting like he is starving all the time. Now we'll see if we can slowly get a little of the excess weight off.
picky eater doesn’t approve
1 of two cats approve. Other cat will eat anything though. Picky cat went on hunger strike. I do like this brand though, so I was very surprised by the result. Going back to other food.
