Recent Reviews for Grain Free Turkey, Chicken & Sweet Potato Cat Food
“Excellent product that all three of my very finicky cats all agree they like. Great ingredients, good price point and my favorite holistic pet store in Clackamas carries this food.”


“My aging cats began having digestion problems with their old food (which I was told was superior). They were always vomiting it up. After switching to this brand, my cats are more energetic, they’re not vomiting and their stools have become solid. As a bonus, they love the flavor!”

“This isn’t your normal review–I don’t buy this for a cat (nor a dog). I run a hedgehog and tenrec rescue and I provide the best foods I can find for these animals. By Nature-Grain Free is one of my top choices for these animals. The ingredients are superb and the nutritional values fall in line for those recommended for hedgehogs. My hedgehogs and tenrecs love this food (though, the tenrecs need a little more calcium, so I just add a little to their food) and all are fit an healthy. If it works this well for my critters, I can imagine this food would be very good for your cats.”

“I love this food!!! I work at a pet store in Wisconsin and we started carrying it recently. I was very interested by what the representative said about this food, but I didn’t expect it to be as good as he made it sound! I have a Devon Rex cat, and she was very sensitive to the food she was on when I got her and since the day after I switched her food (with no transition at all from her old food) her fecal matter was solid and normal. Plus- she LOVES it. Thank you By Nature!”


“My cats can be a finicky crew – and introducing a new food can be a challenge. In fact, my smallest cat Jeffrey pushed her way to the bowl to ensure she got a taste. They all love it!

I’m looking for the healthiest choice for my cats, but it doesn’t work if they won’t eat it. Active Defense checks both boxes. My cats love it and I love that it keeps them healthy.”
