About Nature’s Logic
Founded in 2005, Nature’s Logic has been making natural, whole-food nutrition easily accessible for pet parents for over a decade and a half. This company uses only 100% natural ingredients with no synthetic vitamins and minerals. Their products are also free from fillers, by-products, and artificial additives.
When Scott Freeman founded Nature’s Logic, he set out with a goal to provide the safest and most nutritious pet food products people can feel good about sharing with their pets.
Their recipes are inspired by the natural diets of obligate carnivores, made primarily of meats and other high-quality protein sources combined with carefully selected plant ingredients to ensure balanced nutrition.
Sourcing and Manufacturing
Nature’s Logic pet foods are made in the USA with whole-food ingredients. The company is based in Lincoln, NE but they do not appear to make their own products. They use several different manufacturing partners with plants located in Nebraska, Kansas, Wisconsin, and Missouri.
Rather than using fresh or frozen protein sources, Nature’s Logic uses dried meals which result in a higher final protein content for their dry foods. Their beef, chicken, and pork are sourced from the USA while their lamb comes from New Zealand and their duck and salmon is sourced from the USA and Chile.
While Nature’s Logic sources their ingredients from numerous countries outside the US, they state that they require their vendors “can guarantee that the ingredients do not contain chemical preservatives, herbicides, or insecticides and are from reputable sources.”
To our knowledge, Nature’s Logic has never had a product recall.
What Kinds of Cat Food Does Nature’s Logic Offer?
Nature’s Logic offers a variety of dry and canned food diets along with a limited selection of lightly cooked frozen recipes and freeze-dried bites. The primary proteins they use are chicken, beef, duck, salmon, turkey, rabbit, and sardine.
All of Nature’s Logic’s recipes are made with 100% whole foods and formulated to provide complete nutrition for all cats, regardless of their breed, size, and age.
What Do Customers Think Of Nature’s Logic Cat Food?
Customer reviews for Nature’s Logic are a mixed bag. For the most part, their products have an average 3.5- to 4-star rating out of 5 stars, but several products have a significant number of 1-star reviews.
Among the negative reviews, there is a running theme that some cats simply won’t touch the food. Other customers have complained that the wet food has a drier texture than expected or that the cans weren’t completely full. For every negative review, however, there’s a satisfied customer who loves the quality of the food and the natural ingredients.
Let’s take a look at a few customer reviews from some of the most popular recipes from Nature’s Logic.
“I spent a lot of time researching a new food for my cats after their previous canned food was discontinued. Nature’s Logic is one of two brands that I feel extremely comfortable and confident about feeding them! Saw quite a few comments in the reviews about how this food is more dry than other canned/wet foods on the market and I would agree, however, since by nature cats tend not to drink a lot of water I’ve ALWAYS added fresh, filtered, spring water to my cats canned food at each feeding.”- KittyMom reviewing Nature’s Logic Feline Rabbit Feast
“We love Nature’s Logic! Seraphina and Gabby had a bag mixed in to their previous food (the healthiest way to change food brands) and they were quite eager to find out what the new smell was. YUMMY! I’ve never seen them eat a bowl so fast!”- Krystal reviewing Nature’s Logic Feline Sardine Feast Dry Food
“This food has 5-star ingredients but 1 star for taste apparently. My cats won’t even try a lick, they just try to bury it and beg for something else. I also bought the rabbit version which was a big hit before, and they are also turning their noses up to it this time.”- Kitty reviewing Nature’s Logic Feline Turkey Feast Wet Food
“I think this is probably much healthier than the food my cat normally eats. However, he is not confined indoors, so when he doesn’t get what he wants at home, he just goes around the neighborhood and finds it. He does not want this food.”- Maggie reviewing Nature’s Logic Feline Rabbit Feast Wet Food
What Did Our Test Cats Think?
Finding a high-quality cat food that fits my cats’ dietary requirements is a challenge because one of the three is allergic to chicken, turkey, and potentially beef. All three share their food, so I’m stuck feeding all of them something that won’t upset the allergic cat’s stomach.
Several years ago, after my then-current cat food brand went out of business, I came across Nature’s Logic’s rabbit recipe. It was a little pricey (and still is), but I rabbit seemed to be my only option and I liked that it didn’t contain any synthetic additives. I’ve been feeding it to my cats ever since.
While my cats have been eating Nature’s Logic canned rabbit recipe for several years, this was an opportunity for them to test some of their dry foods. They enjoyed both flavors immensely and licked the bowl clean after each meal. I did find that my most recent shipment of canned food had the “hole in the middle” problem some customers have mentioned, but I wasn’t too concerned.

How Much Does Nature’s Logic Cat Food Cost?
Nature’s Logic is about average in price, though price varies somewhat from one recipe to another. Most of their wet foods cost about $0.33 per ounce, though their rabbit recipe is significantly more expensive at about $0.46 per ounce. The dry food formulas average about $0.28 per ounce.
Nature’s Logic recommends feeding ¾ can per 6 to 8 pounds of body weight, so the average 10-pound cat would probably cost about $2 per day to feed.
Overall, Is Nature’s Logic Cat Food a Good Choice?
If you’re interested in increasing the quality of your cat’s diet from something like Friskies or Meow Mix but you’re not ready to go top-shelf, Nature’s Logic could be a good option. It’s also a great choice if you’re trying to avoid synthetic additives or if your cat has food allergies or a sensitive stomach.
Nature’s Logic’s canned food recipes offer plenty of animal-based protein and moisture, though you should double-check the ingredients list to make sure the recipe is made with a single-source of protein if your cat has sensitivities. For the most part, these recipes are low in carbohydrates, despite containing a number of dried fruits and veggies – these provide natural sources for essential nutrients.
While Nature’s Logic canned cat food offers a decent source of nutrition, their dry food formulas are higher in carbohydrates than we’d like and you could probably find a better recipe for the price.
