    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat loves it, especially the raw My cat really enjoys this food, especially the freeeze dried raw pieces. I love that it is grain-free, high protein like nature intended. My kitty is really picky but seems to love this stuff.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Less Not excited that protein and fiber were lowered while fat was increased. The measurements for feeding are much more appropriate however. Lowering the amount of canberries is not in my interest either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for our cats Our two younger cats (app 3 years old) thrive on this food. I tried a number of premium kibbles for them and this one is a keeper, particularly at the price point from the online vendor. I do notice that the freeze-dried bits seem to be coming through their systems "whole," as evidenced in the litter box -- the cats just gobble them down in delight. I do occasionally give the cats canned food, but they favor the Instinct kibble even when presented with a choice of it or nice stinky wet food.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad quality control We've been feeding our cats this for the past year. Loved the convenience of being able to incorporate raw food into their diet. However for the past 2 bags, the amount of freeze dried bits have decreased significantly. This past bag, had a total of 2 pieces in the whole bag!! (Trust me, I waited until they finished the bag to confirm this) Very bad quality control. The amount has always been different between the bags but this was just ridiculous. So disappointed. Won't be buying any more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Cats are Happy and so am I. Have been using for aprox. 3 months. Have three cats and they all love it. Two of them were on medication and/or special food (c/d) The one on the special cat food would only eat it as a last resort because there was nothing else. So far everyone is off special diets and doing well. Told my Vet and he said ok.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent food that all my cats love! I have a male and female cat that both need to lose a few pounds and it's a struggle to find a reduced calorie food that they will eat. Not only do they love this food, but the kittens I foster love it more than the "regular" food I feed them. It's a great quality food and they love the Raw Boost bits so much, that I sometimes buy a bag of the Mixers to add a bit more into the kibble.They haven't had any stomach issues with this food and have both lost a few pounds. Great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down the best food there is!!!!!!! Since I started using the Instinct Raw Boost dry food my cats and kittens have been so healthy! I have a small cattery so I have researched food for years and none have compared to this line of food! I can't say enough about it. My kittens start on the regular Instinct kibble and when they are old enough to chew the nuggets, they get the Raw Boost kibble. The biggest difference is seen in my queens after they have had kittens. They would always lose to much weight and now they stay healthy which means they nurse healthy kittens! I also have an older Munchkin who HAD IBS but since switching to this kibble he has no more digestive problems! I will never have to switch to another brand again! Can you tell how much I love this food? LoL!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kitties favorite! I have a 5 year old cat who LOVES this food! Every time I pour it in her bowl she comes over and picks out all of the Raw Boost chunks first, just like the marshmallows in cereal. Her coat has been more soft and shiny since starting her on this food about a year ago, I won't be switching up her food again.

    My cars are eating Crave, all meat, no "meal" ingedients. This has chicken meal and turkey meal -- and the raw chicken is farther down in the list. I know, but do YOU know what chicken meal is? Its not so good, but better than by-products.
