When getting back in stock

Does Royal Canin know when they will get this dry food back in stock again? My cats are a rescue and they are part Domestic or American Shorthairs and one is also part Himalayan. I also have a purebred 17 yr old Tonkinese who needs tiny bits.

Look at the top ingredients... corn and byproducts. This food should not be sold. Terrible. Buyer beware, don’t trust the brand... read the ingredients.

New favorite

Tried several different dry foods recently. Cats gave them so-so reviews until I bought this. Now I won't be able to get anything else.

Corn? Chicken by products?

There you go, the first 2 ingredients that are absolute NO NO’s in a cats diet. What is going on Royal Canin? Why would you use these cheap fillers for top ingredients? I’m fact, the first 8 ingredients are not quality at all. Thankfully CAT people, I read!

There is Something About This Food

Our 8 cats are not eating it. Royal Canin is hit or miss amongst our fur babies and this particular formula is not popular at all. They do like RC wet food though. It's not fun trying to find something that almost all my cats like but I won't give up as there are plenty of options here on Chewy!

Fussy Cat Loves American Shorthair

I have a rescue cat that was abandoned, so it appears that cats that have gone months without domestic cat food are very fussy. Anyway, my cat is not a lover of dry cat food, but she has changed her ways with this formula. I have gone through various brands as they started to get stale it went to my dogs. Well, certainly not the case with this food, so it is highly recommended.
