ADULT INSTINCTIVE™ features the optimal balance of proteins, fats and carbohydrates that adult cats prefer.

A moderate energy level to help adult cats maintain their ideal weight.

ADULT INSTINCTIVE™ features a proven Macro Nutrient Profile that is instinctively preferred by adult cats. This profile represents the ratio of energy derived from proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. A Macro Nutrient Profile also influences long term palatability and dietary satisfaction. A cat’s specific Macro Nutrient Profile varies not only according to its age, but also the cat’s physiological condition.

An adult cat is prone to developing lower urinary tract diseases, including crystals, and feline idiopathic cystitis. ADULT INSTINCTIVE is formulated with an adapted mineral content to help promote lower urinary tract health. A high moisture content helps reduce urine concentration.

100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

Royal Canin’s unique Macro Nutrient Profile guarantees exceptional palatability and long term preference.

My cat won't eat it.

This may be perfectly healthy food and much loved by other cats, but our 1 year old Maine Coon won't eat it. She does love the Adult instinctive thin slices in gravy though so I'll be giving that one a thumbs up.

Inconsistent, no quality control

The wet food is very inconsistent. The last case we got was completely watery compared to the previous one we got and it gave our cats horrible diarrhea! The same thing also happened to my parents with their Royal Canin dog food. Clearly there is a huge problem with quality control and they don't have anyone checking the food. We are switching to another brand.

Slightly Questionable

So, has anyone noticed the ingredients are not listed on the site? The UK site has the ingredients of Meat and animal derivatives, derivatives of vegetable origin, cereals, minerals, vegetable protein extracts, various sugars. Vitamin D3: 130 IU, E1 (Iron): 3 mg, E2 (Iodine): 0.28 mg, E4 (Copper): 2.3 mg, E5 (Manganese): 0.9 mg, E6 (Zinc): 9.5 mg This does not strike me as good or reliable. What are "Meat and Animal Derivatives."?!?!? If you could clarify these things and possibly put your ingredients on your site that would be greatly appreciated.

My cat loves it !

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received one pouch as a free sample and served some to my cat, not necessarily expecting a great response. She typically does not like new things; however, she ate her sample with gusto. She licked her dish clean ! She likes every one of the available flavors.

Kitty likes it

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] She is so finicky but she took to it right away. A little on the expensive side but worth it to get her to eat.
