    royal canin is a great brand.  our vet got us on it almost two years ago.  we saw a very quick improvement in our cats' coats and energy level, and less, well, kitty treasures in the catbox.  =)

    one of my cats is borderline diabetic, and royal canin makes prescription specific brands, too.  ever since we put him on the fatcat royal canin brand, he's got more energy and has actually dropped about a pound (he really needed to).

    plus it apparently tastes really good.  my two healthy cats will NOT eat anything but royal canin now.  they turn their noses up at everything else.

    but of course, ask your vet before changing brands.

      While looking up stuff related to this particular issue I came across this.

      Two Toronto law firms have jointly filed a national class action lawsuit against pet food manufacturer Royal Canin Canada Co. seeking $60 million in damages.

      Law firms Rochon Genova LLP and Himelfarb Proszanski LLP are seeking compensation for all those who purchased Royal Canin dog or cat food since Aug. 1, 2004.

      The claim is not related to the recall last Friday of 60 million tins of pet food manufactured by Menu Foods


      The legal action against Royal Canin alleges that certain types of dog or cat food contain excessive amounts of Vitamin D, which causes illness or death in pets.

      The proposed lead plaintiff is Janet Grixti of Whitby, who said her 5-year-old Chocolate Labrador Retriever named Mocha developed chronic renal failure and will have to endure this condition for the rest of his life
