About Instinct Freeze-Dried Meals for Kittens

100% Raw Meals

100% Raw Meals

Instinct believes that eating a diet rich in raw, unprocessed foods is just as good for our pets as it is for us. They make every meal with the understanding that real, less-processed, whole raw foods can have the power to transform lives.

Raw Tailored for Kittens

Instinct Raw Cage-Free Chicken Recipe for kittens contains natural DHA for brain development and healthy vision. It is high in protein to help kittens build lean, healthy muscles and made with omega-3 and 6 fatty acids to promote skin and coat health.

Upgrade From Kibble to Freeze-Dried Raw

3x More Real Meat and Organs

Compared to Instinct’s Original Kibble, Instinct Freeze-Dried Raw Meals contain 3x more real meat and nutrient-rich organs. That means there’s more animal protein and flavor in every bite!

Never Cooked, Minimally Processed

Instinct preserves the integrity of their ingredients by keeping them raw, which leaves their nutrients intact. Raw is better for digestion because it’s less processed than cooked kibble.

These Raw Meals are made with meat and organs, as well as fruits, vegetables, vitamins and minerals.

Easy to Serve Raw

Keep Instinct Freeze-Dried Raw Meals in your pantry for an easy-to-serve raw meal—just scoop and serve!

    Cat loves this

    By devolew on Aug 28, 2021

    This is a great food, but so expensive. My cat can only have raw diet or else she has diarrhea, but I’m finding that there’s no cheaper way to feed her because she refuses to eat wet food.

    my kitty loves it

    My Maine Coon kitten is doing very well on this food! He prefer it to freeze dried food from other brands. The food is also very easy to prepare.

    Sajan comes running

    By Sajan on Jun 7, 2021

    My kitten is doing well on this. I serve every morning and he devours all of it. I mix in enough water to make a bit of a gravy. I also add in his probiotics. He also is eating the dry kibble by same brand, which I leave out for him. Am happy with his energy level, his coat and eagerness to eat. One bag lasted me 3 weeks. He is a (now) 15 week old Maine Coon.

    Instinct Raw Meals

    By Janeen on Jun 3, 2021

    So far my Cat is not responding to this food choice. I don't want to leave a negative review or star rating, because some pets may really like it.. For my cat, not so much. Not sure what to do with the food. Maybe donate..
