I bought one bag of Instinct at a small pet food shop and my cats who are on a no grain diet and are recent rescue cats loved this!
The cats I have are stressed and have stomach issues with regular foods so I need high quality food to stabilize their health after coming home with me. This food did the trick and they really love it so I bought several bags on Pet Flow's website so I have more on stock for them.

Comments about Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Grain Free Chicken Meal Formula Dry Cat Food:

My kitties love soft gravy food but the kibble is necessary for good oral health. So I have been looking for a food they'll eat. Wysong changed their formula and they stopped liking it, so I searched around and got a bag of the Raw Boost and they love it! My one cat will pick through it and eat all the dehydrated chicken bits first as though I sprinkled in treats. They're indoor/outdoor cats so I feel this gives a nice well rounded diet for them.

        My very picky cats won't eat it

        The ingredient list is impressive - this seems like a very high quality food. Makes no difference if your cat won't eat it, though. None of my 5 kitties like it.

        As soon as my order arrived, I poured some of this food into their bowl. Everyone seemed to like it. The following morning, I was surprised to find that at least one of my cats had opened the cupboard door, taken the bag of food out, and punctured three big holes in it. I would definitely say they love it. I will be ordering this for them again.

        I have tried multiple foods for my cats and the only one they both "agree" on is Instinct with Raw bits. Great food and unbeatable prices.

        Grain Free AND Raw - more species appropriate.

        The Instinct Raw Boost is by far my cats' favorite dry food. They pick out the raw bits first then eat the kibble.

        Of my three cats, one prefers dry over wet most of the time. I feel that they are all getting more species appropriate food with the raw dried bits and no grains.

        I really wish Nature's Variety would sell the raw bits on their own. I've tried other freeze dried raw products and they were great at first but the cats are now tired of that and the Nature's Variety raw bits seem to continue to satisfy.

        My very picky cat loved this!

        I received a sample of this from Nature's Variety in the mail. I was very leery about feeding it to my cat because she is SUPER picky when it comes to food, so we usually just stick with what I know she likes. However, I thought I might as well give it to her, worst case scenario she wouldn't eat it, & since I didn't pay for it I had nothing to lose. The sample was just the right amount for a feeding, so I poured it in her bowl, not expecting her to do anything except stick her nose up at it, & she sat and ate the whole serving! She absolutely loved it, & I wish the sample was bigger so I could have given her more. The combination of kibble & the freeze dried pieces are perfect, & I definitely recommend replacing the dry food you feed your cat now to this. It is expensive for a dry food, so I would still buy your normal dry food & this, and maybe once a week feed your cat this. This really is a great product & I highly recommend trying it.

        Don't be thinking your buying a bag of raw food. The freeze dried chunks are far and few between.

        I only fed my cats Science Diet Light dry food until one of my cats developed diabetes. I switched all of my cats to Wellness Core wet food and I love this as a supplement. I wouldn't suggest feeding your cat a dry only diet (like I did for so many years), but if you are, I think this is a great food. I give my cats 1/8 cup at night so they will let me sleep all night. They love the raw bits and always pick them out first.
