Feeding Instructions

The amount of food your cat requires will depend on activity level, age, and environment. Feed at room temperature and refrigerate unused portion. Always provide access to clean, fresh water.

For adult cats, feed about 2 cans per 7 lb of body weight.

Transition Instructions

It is always a good idea to start out slowly on a new diet with any pet. Slowly increase the amount of new food being added to the present diet over a period of 5-7 days. If any digestive upset or loose stool occurs, make the transition more gradual. It is a good idea to allow your pet's digestive system to calm down and return to normal before proceeding. There is no need to rush this transition. Once your pet is accustomed to Nature's Variety foods, you can rotate freely between forms and flavors.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are your products made?

All Nature's Variety foods and treats are manufactured in the United States.

Where do your meat and poultry come from?

Nature's Variety is committed to using high quality, safe ingredients from government-inspected facilities. Our natural ingredients are continuously inspected for quality and tested for analytical compliance before being accepted at our facilities.

Why do I occasionally notice a slight change in the color of your diets?

Nature's Variety does not include any artificial colors or dyes in our wholesome foods. As a result, the color of our food is totally dependent upon the color of our healthy ingredients, and may vary from time to time. Absolutely consistent and uniform color does not come from nature.

Why do I occasionally notice a difference in the moisture content of your Instinct cans?

Our Instinct canned diets are predominantly meat and are all natural (with added vitamins and minerals). As a result, our canned diets will directly reflect the amount of natural moisture that is in a variety of meat or poultry. For example, lamb is a drier meat – so our lamb formulas often have less noticeable moisture than our rabbit formulas (as rabbit meat has higher levels of natural moisture). Please be assured that the natural moisture present in our canned diets will never exceed the percentage that is guaranteed on the label.

What is the shelf life for your products?

Instinct, Prairie, and Homestyle cans – 2 years (unopened).

How are your foods preserved?

Nature's Variety uses only natural preservatives for our wholesome foods. For our canned diets, the manufacturing (or retort) process sterilizes the food and removes all air, thus there is no need for additional preservatives.

How do I store your kibble and canned diets?

We recommend storing our canned foods in a cool place, protected from extreme heat or cold. Once a can has been opened, refrigerate the unused portion until it can be fed (up to a day or so).

Transition Instructions

Always introduce a new food over a period of 5 to 7 days, mixing increasing amounts of Pride by Instinct with the current food each day.

  • Excellent Grain Free Cat Food

    By on

    My two cats love this brand, the minced food. Has lots of gravy and moisture that helps my cat who does not drink enough water. Highly recommended.

  • The Pride Line Never Disappoints

    This is the one constant product we feed our 17 year old cat. It's a mouse in a can basically with nutritional additives. All your cat needs.

  • Great Grain Free Cat Food

    By on

    One of my favorites to give my cats. They love the flavor and texture of it, always clean the plate. Like the 5.5oz. cans too instead of the 3 oz cans.

  • Approved by 4/5 Household Critters

    I have 3 cats, 1 dog, and 1 8-year-old boy. Two of the three cats love this food; one is super picky and only likes *one* wet food ever. The dog loves this food, but he's very labby and they aren't known for their discriminating palates. The boy tasted the food today and proclaimed it, "DELICIOUS!" There you have it, folks. Recommended by 4/5 of my household critters.

  • Cheshire's Chicken recipe

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    My cat likes it, although I'll admit he's not picky. It has a minced texture. Ingredients seem healthy. Will buy again.

  • A favorite!

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    This food was really a hit! It has little chunks of chicken and the cats seemed to really like it! Its a shame though, I really like ordering the bigger cans of wet food because they seem to last longer but they only sell them in packs of 12 instead of 24. Great food at a decent price though!
