Easy, quick, healthy
posted 5 years ago
i used to feed my cat dry food and cannes from pet stores. we tried all kinds: from the most popular to the most expensive organic. she kept having skin allergies, and was spending most of her life in the e-collar (sad :(). we saw all kinds of vets: from general care to skin and eye specialists. they gave us their prescription food. same results. kitty kept suffering. then i decided to learn about the most natural way of feeding cats. it turned out that all they needed were meat, bones liver and some other organs and some vitamins. just what thay would eat in the wild if they cought a mouse or a chick. i found a recipe and started making food like that. everything was fine except that i needed a special heavy duty meat grinder for the bones, and I had 15 bottles of different vitamins to add. messy and a lot of work!
THEN, i found this food/ bone meal/ vitamins. night and day! now all I do is i buy chicken and liver, grind it, add some Instincs TC, and my kitty is set for 20 days! 30 minutes work! We all love it!
No more skin allergies, my cat lost weight and is very happy now!
Thank you Instinct TC!
Pros: easy to use, contains everything cat needs, healthy
Cons: only sold online

They LOVE it!

I thought about using this product for a long time. After a while, I broke down in favor of my "kids". I got into pressure canning meat in preparation to "give it a go", which gives you an idea of my determination. The recipe online called for home-canned meat with the powder mix and a raw egg yolk, which is then blended or food processed to a smooth (almost liquid) consistency. I made the recipe exactly as described.
The moment of truth: Will they even like it? I know from feeding them various dry and wet cat foods that they can be a bit finicky; so while I was fairly confident (hopeful?), I could not be so sure. I decided to do the "finger feeding" they recommended to get a cat to try something new. I got a spoonful of the stuff and put some on my finger. I got mobbed!
To say they liked it would be an understatement. After giving each a full serving of the recipe, there was hardly any evidence that I had even given them anything. Empty bowls all around! They even followed me around for a bit, in all likelihood thinking I might have some more for them. I can honestly say they don't do that when I give them stuff out of a can.
Needless to say my wife and I are both quite excited about this development.
I know the other posters probably used raw meat as per the package, but using home canned meat is fabulous according to my cats, and is worth a try if you have your own home canning equipment. I will probably use raw meat at some point just to see how they like that.
N.B.: The recipe as given online for using home-canned meat says to just use the meat fresh out of the just opened mason jar, but one should always boil the meat for 10-20 minutes before using to be safe. One should not risk giving your loved one(s) a dose of botulism by accident.
Pros: More natural. Healthier.
Cons: Have to make the recipe yourself

Cats would not eat this
posted 4 years ago
After my cat had a urinary blockage, we decided to switch both cats to homemade food so I bought some of this Instincts powder to supplement it. The cats would eat the ground up chicken plain, but not with this powder mixed in. They completely refused to eat it. After this we switched to Before Grain canned food which they like.
Pros: Very healthy
Cons: Tastes bad, according to my cats; expensive

Many of my birds have survived thanks to this antibiotic. Why I can't find it in a store is beyond me. This is a miracle tonic that at only 2.99 can save all types of birds. It's almost impossible to … more ›
