Cats Love This Food

I have been feeding them the slices in the gravy since we got them as kittens. They love it. I have now switched them over to Instinctive with slices in gravy and they equally love it. They must be thriving on it because their coats are soft and shiny! I've never had cats that loved a food like this one! I only wish it came in the larger cans. M

My Cats Love It!

I started buying the Adult Instinctive a little bit ago due to my older cat not being able to keep down the cheaper canned food brands. The first time he tried it, he loved it. I can tell he's much healthier looking now too. My younger cat loves it too.

My cats love it!!!!

We started buying Royal Canin a few months after we rescued our two older cats. Valentino got constipation from another brand cat food, even though we were feeding dry food in the morning and wet in the evening. So after researching food for, its seems hours, we decided upon this food. Both of our cats and our newer rescued cat loves Royal Canin, plus the last two visits to the vet, they complimented there silky/shiny fur and there weight was fine, even though they are indoor cats. Highly recommend this food. Plus the company is continually researching a cats diet, and their food, so they can have the best product.

My cat loves it

My 2 cats have really enjoyed the Royal Canin cat foods. Sometimes they can be picky but, not when it is RC.

Our Calico Manx loves the moist and dry food

We feed her the Loaf in Sauce DIGEST SENSITIVE. When we adopted her from a shelter she had health issues. Not Anymore!

Tasty Nutrition!!

I've been feeding Royal Canin brand to my pets for several+ years now (to cats & a dog); From Baby Cat, to Kitten Instinctive, to Adult Instinctive, to Aging 12+ Instinctive, to Prescription Diet. Not only do they love the taste... they absolutely thrive on it! Their hair is so soft & shiny, their bodies are toned and strong & they have great energy! I trust the Royal Canin brand & would recommend it to anyone who loves their pets & wants good nutritional value in their pets' food!

Consistently high quality food

We switched our cats from Wellness canned food to Royal Canin canned food, and our cats have done wonderfully on it. The quality is consistent from batch to batch, and our cats have had no vomiting or diarrhea (which they had occasionally with Wellness). They like the flavor and the transition was very easy. I also like that there is no fish in the ingredient list, as many canned foods have fish in them even though the flavor may be poultry.
