Hi everyone! This month we jumped at the chance to try Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Mixers Chicken Formula Freeze- Dried Cat Food Topper. I have been wanting to get my cats on a raw diet , but with 13 cats, buying one would be too expensive and I am too lazy to make my own. I thought this would be a good test to see if they like raw. It was actually hard to tell it is raw because they are freeze-dried, dry being the key word there.

*Disclaimer: We received a bag of this food in exchange for a fair review as part of the Chewy Blogger Outreach Program. All opinions are those of the cats that tasted them.

100_9698Polar Bear and his 2 wives loved them.

100_9700 Joanie loved them.

100_9702Phoebe did too. 100_9709Millie liked them tooΒ  100_9704I even let Sammy try a few ( he is on a special diet)

100_9705Snowball munched hers up 100_9707and Prancie did too ( Joanie was waiting just in case Prancie left any).

Everyone liked them except for Penny and KaTwo so we have 11 out of 13 that approved. If you want to try them, they are on sale this month for $11.99/ 6 ounce bag. And Chewy

always has free shipping on orders over $49 so stock up. Click Here to go to Chewy

And the #JHC word is Fall/Autumn. Penny is the perfect colors for Autumn:


Phoebe will announce the eyeball giveaway winner tomorrow, if you want to enter just comment on Sunday’s post.



  1. Those treatables sound delish but Mom’s afraid to try anything out on me these days with my sensitive tum-tum! Glad your crew liked them though!

    Hugs, Sammy

  2. I got samples of the chicken flavor at BlogPaws and Bear ate them as is (not crushed or re-hydrated) which surprised me. I really like they’re a convenient way to feed raw πŸ™‚

  3. 11 out of 13 kitties? These sound like a winner for sure! I wish my kitties were more open to treats. Thimble completely ignores them, Eddy hardly does more than sniff them, and Evan will only eat one brand. Pup Astrid gets more cat treats than the kitties around here, because they always leave them for her. Well, I’m at least glad you all enjoyed your snack! And, Penny, you sure are the gorgeous colors of autumn!

    1. You sure do have picky kitties, I wish my were at least a little picky πŸ™‚ Penny thanks you.

  4. We haven’t tried those. We’ll have to tell Mommy to add that to her Chewy order.

    1. Polar Bear is a polydactyl polygamist, he has 2 wives- Tallulah and Noel. πŸ™‚

  5. I say you found a winner here. Way cool. I love buying from Chewy. They are fast and efficient and love the free shipping.

    Penny is indeed the purrfect colors of fall.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺
