Rated 5 out of 5 by from My ASH Love It As I started to mix this in with the dry food I usually feed my American Shorthairs picked out the pieces of the new food. I will wean them onto the new formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fur from coarse to smooth and luxurious Chloe has coarse short hair that is prone to matting. I had to groom her twice daily to prevent matts. Since she looks similar to American shorthair, I thought I'd slowly introduced her to RC American Shorthair (25%) to (75% of RC adult & RC appetite control mix) 3 days ago. Now, her fur is soft, smooth, and untangled. I am totally shocked! So this has produced amazing result in a very brief period of time for my cat. May include photos later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for American Shorthairs As a breeder of American Shorthairs since 1980 I was very happy to find the breed specific Royal Canin dry food. The pellets are just the right size for a breed that are known as hunters (if they had to). Their nutritional needs are met perfectly in this formula. I wish that it came in a larger size bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All 6 of mine love it. Have 6 cats with various preferences for cat food. The AmericanShorthair is the first one they ALL agree on. Petsmart has quit carrying it & was afraid it was going to be discontinued..but can buy it elsewhere. Crisis averted.
