Royal Canin Fit Adult Cat is a dry, biscuit-type cat food which is nutritionally balanced and designed to have certain health benefits for adult cats. The food is described as being aimed mainly at cats who spend most of their time indoors, and it protects against hairballs. As we have six adult cats who live indoors, the food is suitable for them although I'm not sure our cats are particularly 'fit', leading somewhat sedentary lifestyles!
We first tried this food with our cats when it was on a special promotion and the 400g bag had 100 per cent extra free. This food is quite often on offer, particularly on the ZooPlus website which we use to order our pet supplies in bulk.
We've given this food the nickname 'doughnuts' in our house, because the biscuits are shaped like tiny dark brown doughnuts. The biscuits are a particular hit with our oldest cat, who is 20 years old and somehow manages to eat them despite having lost all his teeth! He seems to really enjoy the flavour and persists with the biscuits until he manages to eat them. We tend to sit a bowl of this food out at a time and our other cats will also graze on it, and we never have any wastage with this brand.
Unlike with other brands, it's not immediately clear what flavour these biscuits have, but the list of ingredients includes poultry, pork and fish oil, as well as various other things including minerals and fibres. The fibres are supposed to help prevent hairballs and the minerals help with urinary health, which can be a big problem in cats.
As cat owners, of course, our main priority is finding foods which are good for the cats and which they enjoy eating, and this one seems to tick both boxes. Cats aren't slow to reject food that they don't enjoy, and this one has been a definite hit.
Royal Canin Fit is usually priced around 4GBP for 400g, and is available in larger packs up to 10kg. Although the larger packs seem to offer better value, we sometimes find that the cats go off biscuits once they've been open for a while (even though we store the food in airtight containers) so large packs are a false economy for us.
Royal Canin Fit 32 cat food is intended for fully-grown cats with an ideal weight who go outdoors but spend their time primarily indoors.
