The Nature’s Variety humans gave me some of their new product to try out. You remember them — I had an awesome giveaway contest with some of their food last year. But the moment the new package arrived, you-know-who had to get involved.
She always steals my food, so I had to send her packing.
Anyhow… it is Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Bites, Lamb Forumla and the Instinct Raw Daily Boost Supplement with real venison and lamb. Both are made from minimally processed, freeze dried raw ingredients. Very wholesome… and hopefully very yummy!
I don’t get a moment’s peace around here, do I? I would really like a chance to taste test these items without having someone steal my thunder… or my food!
The Raw Boost Bites come in discs. Obviously, I was not going to be able to eat it like that, so my human broke it up for me. Since I am so picky, there was no guarantee I was going to like it. I actually turn down lots of food samples!
But I loved this! These Boost Bites are totally delicious!
Yes, Boodie and Binga got tastes when I was done. Even the dog got to have a disc, since the Boost Bites and supplement are for both cats and dogs. She liked it too. I felt it was wasted on her — that meant one less for me!
My human wasn’t sure what to do with the supplement for my taste test, so she just opened it up and let me check it out. As you can see, I tried eating it out of the container! It was tasty too. My human thinks that maybe she can put it on food that I have “fallen out of love with.” I think she should just give me the powder and forget about the food.
The one thing that worried my human was that neither product had taurine added to it, which is an amino acid that is necessary for us cats. But the Nature’s Variety people said that they contain organ meats, which have taurine as part of their make up. And sure enough, lamb heart and lamb liver are the second and third ingredients for both products (the first being either lamb or venison on the items I got). Since these are meant to be fed in addition to a regular diet, my human thought that was okay, and actually a whole lot healthier than some treats I see other kitties eat!
So do I give these my paws up? You bet!
