Exciting #RoyalCanin Giveaway

CK here. This is a very exciting post for me. It's about our friends at Royal Canin, whose representatives will be visiting NY area stores with free samples of their product. At the end of the post, I'll give everbuddy a chance to win Royal Canin cat food.

In the hood, where I come from, they didn't have good food like Royal Canin. I had to live off anything I found on the streets. I didn't know about pet nutrition; I only knew survival. That could be disastrous to your health if you have to live like that for any length of time. Fortunately, if you're reading this, you have a forever home with a staff looking to spoil you and your fursibs. Meow to them about what you're about to learn from Professor Keisha. Even though Royal Canin makes many different formulas, depending on factors such as your cat's breed, age, whether they're spending all their time indoors, as well as special health concerns, I'm going to talk specifically about Indoor Adult 27Indoor LightIndoor Intense hairballSpecial and Kitten formulas. More specifically, you'll learn how they pertain to your feline's health.


Pay attention to the blackboard and I'll explain the features that makes these Royal Canin formulas so unique.






Did you get all that? Hope you were taking notes. If you weren't, Royal Canin is doing some in-store meet and greets in the New York metro area where you can talk with their representations and pick up a sample bag of their specialized cat and dog food. Dog formulas they're giving out include Mini Puppy, Mini Adult, Yorkshire Terrier Puppy, Yorkshire Terrier Adult, Chihuahua Puppy and Chihuahua Adult.

Give a listen to Professor Keisha and I'll give you the 411 where to get the free samples and meet RC representatives. 32 stores will be giving away free samples, but only the four listed below will have a Royal Canin representative there to answer your questions. There's a special website where you can enter your zip code and find the store nearest to your location. Even if you don't live near any of the participating stores, the site will create a coupon for $3 off that can be printed that will list the stores that sell Royal Canin close to your zip code.

You can get free Royal Canin samples at the following days, times and locations. TW may even put in an appearance with Plush CK, schedule permitting.

  1. Pawsome giveaway, CK! We're fans of Royal Canin, though if we win we'll probably share the loot with our shelter. So please enter us! ...don't worry, we'll do the rafflecopter thingy. I'm not letting Waffles drive that thing though. He doesn't have a pilot's license.

  2. We can't go to a store as they are too far away and I don't drive. Pricilla won't let me hook her up to a cart.....
    But with four farm cats to feed you know how it is.

  17. Thanks for this great post CK. We had never heard of this brand of food prior to your post. Mom was going to ask about the Adult 27 and what the manufacture considered adult, but then she noticed the other formulas, not including kitten, are for cats 1 to 10 years old, so she is figuring the Adult 27 is for kitties over the age of ten. Please enter us in this great giveaway. Have a furry good weekend. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  26. Thanks for the lesson Professor Keisha! I like Royal Canin food and we used to sell it at the vet clinics I worked at. The prescription formulas though. I guess I'll go ahead and enter the giveaway, but Honey D has been missing... My mom can use the food for her cats or I'll donate it if Honey doesn't get the chance to try it out.

  27. I would like to enter if I may CK, I know you can't send it overseas so if we win - would you donate ours as a gift to @ ChrisGroove1 on Twitte - his Mum is a wonderful lady who we love very much.

  28. Royal Canin is my FAVORITE kibble even though the wet fudz is just so-so and lots of times I won't eat them which makes the human mad because she says she might as well be scraping $5-bills into the garbage. Pfft. My favorite is the kitten kibble which I don't get very often since the Human says I am nine years old and it can't possibly be good for me. I like the "Selective" flavor that comes in the white bag with the pink label. It's delicious. NOT as delicious as the kitten food, but almost. Ooooh, I hope I win!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Royal Canin is good stuffs. I (Carmine) eat a prescription diet for my FLUTD, and I hated the Hill's c/d wet food, but I really like the Royal Canin s/o wet one!

    If we win, we'd like to get the Indoor Adult formula, and we'll donate it to a cat shelter we love since we all have to eat Carmine's prescription kibbles. :)

  30. Great giveaway! I won't be visiting in-store because I don't have one around me.
