New Royal Canin Discovery Pack - Giveaway!!

Cat's determine their food preference differently than humans.  The aroma, texture and feeling of satisfaction the food provides is more important to a cat than taste since taste is their least developed sense so the flavour of the food doesn't really matter.

Royal Canin has studied these differences and have decided that their are 3 main types of cat preferences so they have come up with 3 different meal options to satisfy any cat.

      Aromatic Attraction is preferred by cats who are attracted most to the aroma of their food.
   Savour Sensation appeals to those cats that are attracted by the shape and feel of food in their mouth. 
   Protein Preference is for cats that enjoy a feeling of satisfaction after they've eaten their food.



To make it easier for us humans to determine which of the 3 types of food our cats would enjoy Royal Canin has come up with a pack that includes a sample of all 3 types.  Their studies have determined that 85% of cats will like 1 of the 3 types. 



I began the challenge last week on my 2 cats who I haven't really found to be fussy at all when it comes to dry cat food.  My bigger, older cat immediately started eating the Aromatic Attraction and the smaller, younger one started eating the Protein Preference first.  Over the course of the day the Aromatic Attraction was eaten the fastest.  I repeated this for 3 days and the end results were the same.  Aromatic Attraction was definitely their favorite.  In the end my cats did end up eating all 3!  They really aren't fussy eaters.  If you do have a picky feline then I"d recommend trying this pack that's available in stores now.  I think it's a small price to pay to figure out your cat's preferences and make them happy.  


The SelectiveTM line for cats wil be available in stores across Canada starting mid-October 2010, including Pet Valu, Global Pet Foods, Petcetera, Mondou, and several other independent pet stores. The Discovery Pack (which offers samples of each SelectiveTM variety) is available for an MSRP of $5.99, while bags of Aromatic Attraction, Savor Sensation, and Protein Preference range from $18.99 to  $35.99.  Check out Royal Canin for more information on these foods and the study by Royal Canin.  


Now for the giveaway!


Royal Canin would like to give one of my Canadian readers the discovery pack as well as a coupon for a full size bag once you determine your cat's favorite food or any cat if it's not for yourself!

  1. I have a beautiful orange tabby cat. He is 6 years old and just a barrel of fun. I've taught him to pet me on command and to play soccer. I roll the ball, he chases it, flops down on his side and kicks it with his back legs back at me. He loves food too, so I was hoping to win him something healthy to eat! :) Thanks for the giveaway.

  7. We have a cat that is very vocal...she is a real talker! She is a great cat, loud or not we love her just the way she is and when we get another cat we will most likely look for another one just like her...she is a long haired Balinese.
    She is a picky eater so we would love to try out new food.

  10. It sounds like Royal Canin has really done their research about cats. I never knew that their taste was not a very developed sense.

  21. I visited the site to get some info and found out something I never knew... Indoor Beauty 35 intensifies the colors of the cats' fur! Helps with fur balls - I have 4 cats and, I did find a difference between 2 cats who do both, outdoors and indoors and the 2 cats who really do not go out at all. Royal Canin makes a lot of sense.
