Embraced for decades by holistically oriented pet parents and holistic veterinarians, raw feeding is becoming more and more mainstream as cat parents look for alternatives to feeding highly processed commercial pet foods. I’ve been feeding raw for the past ten years, and have seen my cats thrive on it.

I started feeding Darwin’s about five years ago, and it has become a perennial favorite.

Darwin’s Natural Pet Food

There are so many things to like about Darwin’s, both in terms of what’s in the food and what’s not:

  • 100% meat – no animal-by-products or fillers
  • Ethically sourced human-grade ingredients from farms they trust
  • Formulated under the guidance of veterinary nutritionists
  • Free-range, pasture-raised, cage-free meats
  • No GMO
  • No steroids
  • No hormones
  • Made fresh: you will receive your meals 4-6 weeks from production
  • Ready to serve

In short: as far as I’m concerned, they’re doing everything right.

Even better: it’s delivered right to your door

I’m not a fan of running errands or shopping. If something can be delivered to my door, I’m all over it. Darwin’s is packed in eco-friendly packaging with dry ice to ensure that food is shipped and delivered safely. The packaging can be recycled or composted.

Darwin’s offers a convenient auto-ship schedule so you’ll never have to worry about running out of food. The timing of delivery is flexible, and Darwin’s friendly customer service team will gladly adjust your schedule as needed.

Raw feeding made easy

The food comes packaged in convenient 8 ounce sealed packs. It takes about 24 hours for one pack to thaw in the refrigerator, so feeding is no harder than feeding canned food. The only difference is that instead of opening a can, you’re defrosting a pack of food.

The food is more nutrient dense than other brands with higher vegetable or moisture content. One 8 ounce pack yields three meals for Allegra, who weighs about nine pounds.

Allegra loves Darwin’s turkey formula. She has occasionally eaten their chicken formula, but she’s a little lukewarm on that. Ruby loved Darwin’s and ate it almost all the way to the end of her life.


Special offer: get 10 pounds for $14.95!

Darwin’s has an introductory offer that can’t be beat so you can try this for your own cats: For $14.95, you get 10 pounds of raw food. You can customize the flavors depending on your cat’s taste preferences.

Once you place your introductory order, you are automatically set up for automatic shipments (you choose the frequency of shipment,) but you can cancel or change this at any time.
