Time For Another Taste Test: Natural Balance LID Cat Food Review #ChewyInfluencer

Hello dear friends – my name is Magellan and I am a three-year old Maine Coon Cat. I’m wild and bodacious and I take my duties as Neighborhood Watch Cat and Royal Taste Tester for Chewy.com very seriously!

I see and hear everything that goes on in and outside of my home. I am agile, alert, and fleet of foot. Today I am on high alert because I am expecting a visit from my friend, the man in brown – the guy who brings me goodies from Chewy to sample every month!

As ususal, the man in brown and my friends at Chewy did not disappoint. They sent Tsunami and I a case of 24 Natural Balance LID Limited Ingredient Diets Chicken & Pumpkin Formula Shreds Grain-Free Wet Cat Food to try! Each 2.75 ounce tub is filled with delicious shreds of premium chicken and pumpkin which is cooked to perfection in a savory broth that delivers all of the essential nutrients we cats need.


I was very eager to try my new food from Chewy and Natural Balance but I had to wait patiently for Mom to pull all of the food out of the box and get it onto the plate (clearly, she is not as agile or as fleet of foot as I!)

Health-conscious Mom then made me wait while she read the labels (can you believe that!) She likes the fact that this 100% grain-free limited ingredient diet excludes corn, wheat, soy, and artificial preservatives, flavors and colors from the mix.


She also likes that you can see real chicken and pumpkin in the food – it does not look or smell like traditional cat food at all!

Finally, Mom finished all of her machinations and served us our meal! Tsunami really enjoyed this dish (he is a fan of shredded chicken!) My favorite part of the meal was the broth, which was plentiful and delicious!


If you have a kitty with food sensitivities or a finicky appetite, these Natural Balance LID Limited Ingredient Diets – which come in several formulations – might be just the meal your kitty needs!

Disclosure: Magellan and Tsunami received a free sample of food from Chewy.com as members of the #ChewyInfluencer Network. We are also Chewy.com Autoship customers and we highly recommend their service to you!

    Sounds like they love their new cat food! =)

  15. Lucky boy! You should try to make the kitty version of our new DOG LICKS treats!

  16. E says:

    Gorgeous kit kats! My ‘kitten’ is all grown up now, although I can’t quite stop calling her a baby… Thanks for sharing.

  17. Robin says:

    Yum! That looks delicious, Magellan. Manna has tried Natural Balance foods before and she enjoyed them. Chewy has all of the best foods!

  18. Sarah says:

    Oh yummy. We are always looking for good cat food that travels easily with us on the kayak toy. Thanks for sharing.

    Shadow, Stealth, and Sarah.

  19. mmm….looks yummy!

    I admire any cat who is willing to don a costume!
    I usually have on my “cat ears” when I answer the door to trick or treaters. This costume has a couple other parts–tail and skirt that I may also wear.
    Oh, and I have a hippie costume I sometimes wear–tie dye shirt (I make them!), purple velour bellbottoms (really!), and a long hair wig.

  20. speedyrabbit says:

    Oh I like pumpkin…but not chicken…hehehe,xx Speedy

  21. Sounds like you have a real liking for that new food. Alas there isn’t a wet food I will eat, bar the jelly from one type of FELIX brand here in the UK. Oh if food came like mice! purrs ERin

  22. You are such a gorgeously floofy kitty, Magellan! First class all the way.

  23. Bee Halton says:

    I don’t dress up for Halloween and neither would any pet of mine end up to do so. However, I like to have sweets ready and see the kids enjoying themselves doing so. 🙂

  24. Ellen Pilch says:

    Great review, glad it was a hit.

  25. Jean Dion says:

    I’m always happy to hear about foods with ample broth. Those are just the sorts of things sickly little kitties need, and whenever I go looking, I can’t find exactly what I’m looking for! I’ll write this product name down, so I’ll be prepared next time!

  26. Our Dusty doesn’t like chicken he likes broth a lot he would be with you Magellan!

    Magellan’s coat is so beautiful! I guess I’ve never really seen him from that angle.

    Glad they enjoyed their food. 🙂

  28. I love seeing your cat in so many pictures! It’s adorable! Thanks for sharing with us at Share The Wealth Sunday!
