Aby-a-Day – 14 January: Swedish cat food

Since I’m planning on living there for the rest of my life, while I was in Sweden I spent a good bit of time looking at the cat food that is available in my new homeland.

Which…yeah, I was looking for packaging featuring Abys, for the most part. Like this brand. I’m not 100% certain this one’s an Aby, because of all the desaturation going on…but this cat looks like an Aby to me!

This one is definitely an Aby. Kind of an embarrassingly overweight Aby…but an Aby nonetheless.


Then we have good old reliable Royal Canin, featuring a Somali on (of all things) a low-cal dry food.

Funny thing about that Royal Canin dry food…it’s also featured on the back of the January issue of Kattliv magazine! I actually started a subscription while I was there, and and as you can see, this is my first issue.

In non-Aby related food news…I thought this was interesting. They have Temptations treats in Sweden, but they’re called “Dreamies” instead.


And I also found a line of treats that features a happy Burmilla on its packaging. I bought a couple of different treats with the Burmilla on them…after all, Tessie is a Burmilla variant, since she’s smoke instead of shaded or tipped.


The “big” present I brought back for the cats, though, was Moose (even though it says “Elk” on the box) and Reindeer cat food.


I think Jacoby is considering the advantages to cat food packaged in paper boxes vs cat food packaged in metal cans…you don’t necessarily need thumbs to open a paperboard box…

    1. I had it a couple of times while I was there – it was delicious! WE also had moose (elk) and venison, and wild boar. However, there’s a secret about the reindeer and moose cat food…

      The “elk” cat food is only 4% actual moose…

      …and the “reindeer” is only 7.2% reindeer. The foods are mostly chicken, with beef and pork! Still, they aren’t bad…no grain in them. But I was a little disappointed when I read the ingredient labels after I got home.

  1. Good, interesting post Coco. Our Florida cat show Iams distributor, who now represents them – as well as others – says the marketing/sales thrust for Royal Canin is now Europe:
