Good - but inconsistent
Our one and a half year old cat loves this food. She's extremely healthy and in excellent condition on it. But every now and then, we'll get a packet, or sometimes a whole box of 12 that she just completely refuses for no apparent reason. We've no idea why, we can only assume it comes from a different factory or something? We feed her Royal Canin Fit32 dry food in the morning and a pouch of this in the evening.
I have 2 cats and they are both well and happy with this Royal Canin Intense Beauty food against all others tried. HOWEVER..I made a mistake and purchased a pack of 48 in JELLY instead of the GRAVY and neither really liked it, walking away from the dish having eaten very little [and found it smelt nasty if left covered in a dish between meals....wasted a lot in fact] I give the Light variety to the cat who is overweight and she likes that too.. The only wet food I ever buy now.
difficult to extract from packet in last few months
cats still love this but last few months has been much more 'gloopy' than before, very difficult to squeeze out from the packet - has something changed???
My kittens are now 8 months & have been eating this twice a day since 2 months, along with the royal canin kitten biscuits. They love the small chunks and always eat it all. I've also tried the gravy one but they will only eat this. Will move onto the sdult when it's time.
We have a lovely cat called Nony but she is prone to being overweight hence our choice of Ultra Light. In view of this tendancy we weigh out all her food, a pouch of Ultra Light in gravy first thing in the mornings followed by Royal Canin Lightweight Care kibbles. It is a shame that rarely does the pouch hold the 85g that is stated on the pouch. It goes mostly from 78g to 83g and we are VERY careful to make sure we have emptied the pouch. Try it yourselves. It is a bit of a fraud.
Cats love it
I must say that my two rascals love this food. The downside is the price (food was a present from a friend) and I am not prepared to pay it. Plus it's mission impossible to try and get it out of the packet
Give it to my CKD cat
After trying every renal food out there for my cat with CKD ( all eventually got rejected ) I tried Intense Beauty as according to Tanya's CKD website it has quite low phosphorus levels. Goes down great with both my cats. My other cat who we rescued in Jan had a constant bald spot on her side which the vet didn't know what it was - this is now finally filling in after using Intense Beauty - highly recommend
Great for sensitive tummies
Our cats were struggling a bit with the food we were feeding them and we tried them on this and within two days it had settled their stomachs! They LOVE it and go crazy when I bring the pouch out of the cupboard. It would be nice to have a couple of flavours to alternate and it is quite pricey.
kitten growing strong
she has been fed this wet food as part of her wet rotation- she is always happy to see it. the jelly disappears first and she goes back later for the chunks but they're never left behind. smells good, fur is shiny. i rotate cause i don't want her to only experience one food, only minus is that it is only one flavour/type.
This food destroys appetites right down to the very last crumb. A pity that this Light food contains sugar. So I'm not really sure if it is really that good for losing weight. But they still seem to like it and it fills them up.
there is only one single problem with RC instinctive in Jelly the packaging. Make sure to shake the pack before opening or you'll end up spilling loads. My gourmets get very excited as soon as they see the package - they just love the jelly!
For kittens, there's nothing better than this RC Jelly. Top! Recommended
Royal Canin Intense Beauty
This flavour from Royal Canin pouches is my cat's favourite. It has the most gravy.
Royal Canin Ultra Light in Gravy
Purchased this on our vets recommendation after being told our 20m/o Birman needs to "not gain anymore weight" due to her heart problem... She doesn't seem to enjoy it as much as some other wet meats, but then it is a lighter option, and lets be realistic, when does the diet food ever appeal more to us than the full-fat products!? It doesn't have a very strong odour compared to some other meats I've tried, and it has all the essential nutrients and quality you'd expect from a Royal Canin product. Definitely worth a look if you need to switch to a lighter option!
Pleasing wet food
My little maine coon was weaned with royal canin products and liked them a lot. This wet food is particularly pleasing but I preferred to move gradually to Almo Nature, more natural and cruelty free.
Cheaper than at any retailer
I don't quite know why but my cats are absolutely bonkers for this stuff. The prices are so high in any physical store that Zooplus and their economy packs really save my bacon. Ordering is as easy as ever and I have stocked up once more.
All 5 cats love this
All my cats, aged from 4 weeks to 5 years, love this food. Two of them have very sensitive digestive systems and are easily upset, but this suits them all very well and they all look in perfect health, with glossy coats. Nothing gets wasted, but it is very expensive. I've only given it four stars, as the quality merits five, but the value for money factor brings it down.
