I introduced Instinct Raw Bites gradually to my 2 cats - at first they ate around it. Now one cat likes it and will eat it all. . The other one doesn't - she won't eat more than two or three nuggets, and this cat LOVES raw human supermarket chicken. The product arrived well-packed, frozen in dry ice, is easy to serve and seems to contain healthy ingredients. However my recommendation has to be qualified; I'll keep offering it mixed with her regular canned food, but unless there's a change re the cat who rejects it, I probably won't order it again.

My girl is 19 and has had kidney disease for over 3 years now. She refuses to eat the prescription food, so I have been feeding her raw since her diagnosis. She is keeping her weight up on her raw diet. So I was very excited to find this on Chewy. I'm hoping they will begin carrying Instinct's other 'flavors'.

Our cat has always had a sensitive tummy that caused loose bowels. We used to call him the picasso of poo. After trying all sorts of cat foods - cheap, grain free, organic - instinct raw frozen is the ONLY food to not cause tummy upset. We scoop out two servings from the freezer to defrost in the refrigerator until needed. We've had trouble with consistently finding this food in stock at local stores so loved it when we found it available through Chewy. No problems with shipments (it's shipped in dry ice).

I've been seeking a well balanced, easy to prepare and convenient raw diet for my kitty. She absolutely loves these raw bits by Instinct. These are a fraction of the cost as the dehydrated counterparts and of better quality. The feeding instructions could be better. I reserve a days feeding from the freezer and put it in a ziploc bag in the fridge for the following day.

I have two 17-year-old cats...both with stage 2 kidney... after a ton of research about low protein high phosphorus blah blah blah I put my cats on Instinct and in four days they’re both running around like they’re two-year-old cats… Not to mention there’s zero waste with this diet so their poo’s are each the size of my pinky finger! Had I been feeding my cat this diet from the beginning I’m certain they wouldn’t have a kidney issue today.

We use to feed our cats raw ground whole chicken. It was very healthy and they loved it but dealing with the raw bones was an issue. It was suppose to be ground fine but we constantly found chips/shards of sharp bones in the food which required a lot of handwork to extract. We switched to Instinct Raw and our cats are just fine. They like it, its very easy and is an excellent substitute for the raw chicken. I do supplement often with plain (no bones) bits of chicken and egg yolks. They are 11 and both healthy, active and excellent coats.

I am trying to transition my cats to raw and have tried several types. Instinct is by far the easiest - small pellets that thaw quickly, so just pour desired amount from the resealable bag. My cats unfortunately prefer the equivalent of fast food cat food (although the kibble they eat is Instinct Raw Boost) but we will keep working toward raw!

Two out of three of my cats love it and the last is kinda ambivalent about it (surprising since she LOVES homemade raw). We use this along with wet food so it's more of a topper than anything else. It might get expensive if you were to try and feed it alone but to each their own. At least the small size lets you try it out on your pet before committing :)
