Darwin's Natural Pet Products Natural Selections Raw Cat Food Review

In this video Jericho & Thunder try Darwin’s Natural Pet Products Natural Selections Raw Cat Food.  https://www.darwinspet.com/cat-food/

All of the Darwin’s Natural Selections raw  recipes are free from hormones, antibiotics, grains, by-products, and meal.

Darwin’s is only sold online, and it ships only to the United States. Each box is shipped with dry ice to keep the food frozen.

We purchased the introductory box which contained 10 pounds of raw food for $14.95.  The box contained 5 packages that were 2 pounds each.  We received 1 package of turkey, 2 packages of lamb, and 2 packages of chicken.  Each package is divided into 4 individual pouches that hold 8 ounces of meat.

Darwin’s is similar to a monthly subscription box.  After the purchase of the introductory 10 pound box, a monthly recurring order of 20 pounds is automatically set up that can be cancelled at any time.  It can also be customized to include whichever flavors you prefer. The timing can be also be changed to receive them more or less frequently.  The current prices for each 2 pound package are: $11.38 for turkey, $17.38 for lamb, and $9.98 for chicken.  So, depending on the varieties and quantities that you order, an average 20 pound order could cost around $120 to $160.

Darwin’s also has a prescription line, including one for kidney support for Thunder. https://youtu.be/ThC9264Bz7Y

Darwin’s also sells raw food for dogs.

The reason we tried Darwin’s is because we were looking for an alternative to Rad Cat, which went out of business.  Darwin’s is very similar to Rad Cat.  Neither contain vegetable or fruit fillers, but Darwin’s does contain the bones of the turkey and chicken necks, and Rad Cat was bone free.  Rad Cat also contained better cuts of meat.  However, Darwin’s is similar enough to be a good alternative to Rad Cat.  Most importantly, both cats loved the turkey and chicken recipes of Darwin’s.

If you are interested in feeding your pet raw food, we recommend that you get the introductory box from Darwin’s and give it a try.

I feed my cats on an elevated/raised surface because it aids in their digestion and is more comfortable for them. I use Better Homes and Gardens 4.5-Cup Square Containers with the lids removed and the container flipped upside down. https://www.amazon.com/Flip-Tite-4-5-Cup-Square-Container/dp/B01JRQJ2DS/ or https://www.walmart.com/ip/Better-Homes-and-Gardens-Flip-Tite-4-5-Cup-Square-Container/885267818
The bowls are Corelle Winter Frost White 10 oz. https://www.amazon.com/Corelle-Winter-Frost-White-Dessert/dp/B00762KF8M/ or https://www.walmart.com/ip/Corelle-Round-Winter-Frost-White-Bowl-10-oz/15065051



  1. Interested in making the switch myself, but was wondering if you’re still using Darwin’s? Looking for a good brand, but I’ve been reading a lot of bad reviews about recalls, the FDA stepping in, hundreds of pets getting sick, food safety violations, etc.

  2. Glad to see you upload a video. I have been thinking about you hoping you are okay. I’m glad you found another raw food that Jericho and Thunder likes. I will be checking this out for Remy but will have to wait for when I get disability to buy it. You always give such great reviews.

  3. Great review! I was curious about Darwins. Nice to see how Thunder and Jericho liked it. Did you get the Kidney Support food for Thunder? The ingredients on that one look interesting with beneficial herbs and restricted phosphorus.

  4. Dear friends.
    I watched your video. Like 38. I love your cat.
    Hope you take a moment to visit my channel and watch one or more of my videos. Thanks.

  5. 42nd liker.Hi i am new supporter here. Nice channel. I am watching here while I am checking new friends. I hope you will be able to visit watch and support me back. thanks God bless you and your family. I am expecting your visit. 🙂 see you.

  6. lol my fur baby didn’t care for the lamb either lol. but he loves the turkey and chicken! i switched my kitty to a raw diet after my older kitty passed away 3 years ago due to kidney failure, but found out it was due to the type of dry/wet food i was giving him at the time(long store). so of course i started researching better diets for cats and choose Darwin’s. Furbaby is a happy and healthy kitty!!!!

  7. I’m so glad you found flavors that they like! This was definitely helpful. The food looks so much better and healthier than the canned food from the grocery store.

  8. ha ha l.o.l loved seeing them both greeting the camera before the review started good to see you all

  9. Oh I missed your voice!! The babies look amazing. I am so happy you have them on raw food and that they are being cooperative about it 🙂 I have heard of wonderful things happening when feeding raw especially with kidney issues. They are truly blessed to have you!!

  10. Hier ist noch einmal Norina – ich bekomme deine schönen Videos nicht mehr. Die werden jetzt immer angezeigt, aber ich kann sie nicht öffnen. Helfe mir bitte – eure Videos sind immer so sehr aufschlussreich. Wie geht es Thunder? Liebe Grüße Norina und ihre Fellnase

  11. At the time this video was recorded I was unaware of the tremendous benefits of bones in a cat’s diet. Our previous raw food didn’t include the bones, but instead had added supplements to take the place of what bones do naturally. I appreciate that this food includes the bones.

  12. Hi. Great video! If you have time could you please go check out my most recent video and participate in the contest? Thanks!

  13. What’s wrong with bones? They need to eat bones for calcium. If they don’t have bones they need to get calcium from egg shells or supplements.

  14. ooh long time you two.. i was thinking of you twoo.. good to see you are looking awesome.. great review.. thanks for sharing..a biiiig thumbs up

  15. I started feeding my cat raw and the first brand she tried was from Savage Cat. She initially ate kibble but introducing savage cat was the easiest transition and she found a liking to it right away. The 5lb bag or chicken only lasted her a week and a half and it was $77. I saw this review of Darwin’s so I decided to go ahead and order the introductory trial because it was so cheap and they deliver. It’s been 3 days since I’ve received Darwin’s raw food and my cat is having a hard time eating it so a lot of it goes to waste and it stinks more for some reason.

    I normally leave out food at night to defrost in her auto-feeder so when she gets hungry she will have something to eat and she normally licks everything clean, almost as if it was a newly washed plate lol.
    I did that the first night I received Darwin’s and she didn’t even touch it. I even tried topping it off with kibble treats she would go crazy over and she wouldn’t even finish an ounce of the meat.

    I also noticed her fur isn’t as soft and her breath was starting to smell. Even when famished and i prepare her food, she would look at it and smell it and then walk away. Even her stool and pee began to smell but when she was eating Savage Cat, I wouldn’t even realize she’d gone to the bathroom!

    Worried that my cat hasn’t been eating much the passed 3 days, I decided to get another 5lb tub of the Savage Cat chicken today and my cat licked the plate clean! I gave her more than what i normally give her and she ate all of it!!

    Seems like there is also a quality difference where Savage Cat comes way above Darwin’s. I haven’t tried Rad Cat as I started feeding my cat raw after they went out of business, but if you’re looking for another commercially produced raw cat food brand, I definitely recommend Savage Cat. Although a lot pricier than other raw foods brands, it’s soooo worth it because their ingredients has everything your feline companions need to live without any veggie or fruit fillers, and ingredients that you can’t even pronounce or have ever heard of!
