Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good dry food for overweight cats. I tried several dry cat foods, before finding Royal Canin Indoor Light 40 cat food. My cats really like the taste and smell of their dry food. It has helped them lose some weight and they have kept it off eating Indoor Light 40. I have been buying this brand for over a year now and we are happy that we found a really good dry food for our cat's health. Thank You

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats seem to love it! I have two cats, one being a bengal/tabby mix and the other being a long haired tortie, and I have always struggled with finding a dry food they seem to like. They are both about a year and a half old. I came across Royal Canin when trying to search for a weight loss food for both of them. I pair this food with the Royal Canin Ultra Light cans and they can't get enough of either every time it's feeding time! Thank you for making a food that they will finally eat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cats love it and it is good quality I have been feeding my cats this for a few years. One cat has a sensitive stomach and this is the only brand he seems to be able to handle well. I start off their morning with one tablespoon of Royal Canin Indoor Intense Hairball food so that I don't have to give them any other hairball remedies and then 30 minutes later I give them their daily portion of the Light food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than prescription diet. My cat has been overweight for sometime. I put him on Hill's Prescription Diet for a year which caused him to become constipated and impacted. My baby was miserable. My vet recommend Royal Canin for Weight. I tried it, and he loves it. He actually looks forward to feeding time. And he is gradually losing weight which is better for him. He is happy and so am I.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for managing weight We’ve been using this for about 4 months now, we switched from our normal royal canin indoor adult cat food and have noticed a difference in both of our cats. It’s helped to manage our over weight kitty while keeping our kitty at a healthy weight. It works best because we can feed it to both of our cats and I feel they get all the nutritional value as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!! My kittes really like this food a lot. I keep coming back to Royal Canin as I believe it surpasses all else in quality and nutrition. There are other good sources out there but this one has been my personal go to for my special, spoiled feline companions. Especially my weight challenged kitty. The label with the crown is fitting for felines who get to enjoy this brand everyday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy We have been using this product for the past couple of years after going through on don't know how many different types of cat food. We have 8 cats and to find a food that everyone enjoys is a tall task. Not to mention it has top notch ingredients and is a healthy food for our cats. It has been a lifesaver since we started using it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready for the catwalk! I've been feeding my 3 indoor cats Royal Canin since they were kittens. Now that they are adults, I feed them the Feline Care Nutrition Weight Care formula and they love it!! I feel confident feeding them Royal Canin because I know they are getting a complete and nutritious diet while maintaining a healthy weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat just gobbles it up!!! My cat Joey simply adores this food thoroughly! He literally gallops to his food bowl when he hears me fill his bowl! He is a bit plump so I have him on this lower calorie food. It is a hit in our home and thank you Royal Canin for making such a tasty food for my favorite cat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our cats eat it Our 4 cats were fat. We had tried several diet foods and our cats wouldn't eat any of them. Our vet recommended Royal Canin Weight Care. To our surprise our cats loved it and ate it. They are slowly losing weight and becoming healthier thanks to this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I have been feeding my 2 cats the weight control for over a year. They are so fussy about taste and particularly the size of the kibble. They love this kind of dry cat food because the size of the kibble is small. I am thrilled they are very satisfied!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love it, never wasted My two cats eat this product every day along with Royal Canin wet canned food. After five years my cats still run to their dishes at meal times. What moves would you want. And with repeat delivery I never have to serve any other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My boys love it! I have been buying this for about 5 years now, and my 3 boys have never walked away from it. It's a bit expensive and lucky coupons come up every now and again, but even without coupons I still want my boys to have the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cat won't eat anything else I have a 14 year old Ragdoll. All she has ever eaten is Royal Canin. She turns her nose up at anything else. She is very healthy and still scampers around with my two young cats. I don't think she knows she is a senior :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food for my cats I've always used Royal Canin for my cats and have had no complaints. My cats are excited for every meal. They seem to love the dry food. They don't have excessively smelly bowel movements and they are regular and normal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from typical cat food, high price The second ingredient is CORN. I didn't know that cats were meant to eat corn... I have an overweight cat and I'm hoping this food is helps with weight issues, but I'm not impressed with the ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love this food! I have had my cats on this since 2005 when it was called Indoor Light 40. About a year ago, they changed it to just Light and I thought they had quit making it! Fortunately, they only changed the name and nothing about the formula which made not only me happy, but my cats as well! My boy cat had a urinary blockage with crystals back in 2005 and my vet recommended I change his food to a more healthy and fulfilling brand. I chose Royal Canin based on the reviews and have never looked back! When my girl cat joined the family, she had no choice but to eat it but she loves it as well! They both run to their bowls when they hear me filling them up and always seem so happy while eating. Their coats are silky and shiny, both are in excellent health and I couldn't be happier! While the cost of a bag may deter some people, I actually notice that my cats eat less at a time due to having high quality ingredients in the food which keeps them fuller longer on less rather than food that has a lot of fillers. So, your money goes further buying more expensive! Give it a try - your cats will love you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food My Cats Love it My cats love this food and they are very picky eaters. It helps them control their weight but allows them to have enough food to feel full. The first ingredient is not by products it is real meat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weight Care is important, tho I prefer Weight Loss Have fed 5 lg bags of this over time to 7 cats in hopes of weight loss; especially 1 obese cat. No wt loss. They love it, but I'll have to try smaller portions, timed feedings.
