BABYCAT INSTINCTIVE features the optimal balance of proteins, fats and carbohydrates at this stage of a kitten's development. This helps to ensure a kitten enjoys its meal, and benefits from all of the nutrients included in the formula.

Between the 4th and 12th week of a kitten’s life, the immunity transmitted by the mother gradually diminishes. This is a very vulnerable time in a kitten’s development, because their own immune system is not yet fully developed. BABYCAT INSTINCTIVE includes a specialized antioxidant complex (vitamins C and E, lutein and taurine) and prebiotic MOS* to help support the development of a kitten's immune defenses.

BABYCAT INSTINCTIVE features a proven Macro Nutrient Profile that is instinctively preferred by kittens. This profile represents the ratio of energy derived from proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. A Macro Nutrient Profile also influences long term palatability and dietary satisfaction. A cat’s specific Macro Nutrient Profile varies not only according to its age, but also the cat’s physiological condition.

Shoddy ingredients

I thought this was the best, but after reading the ingredients, I am going to look for an alternative. This is one of the most expensive brands, and also one of the poorest quality ingredient lists. Shameful

Mother kitten food, stages of food...

Starting newborn kittens off with wheat gluten, carrageenan, and other fillers. Cats are carnivores and your ingredients should read protein based throughout a little veggies is fine. Especially when we gluten is only the 4th ingredient and you don't know the percentage cats are not carbo-based you're starting their little systems off with nothing but wheat and gluten. It could be a fine food if you replace these items and use actual meat based proteins Whole foods please.

Moms and Kittens Voted #1 !!

As a Foster to over 160 Moms and Newborns I can say with confidence that Mother and BabyCat Wet and Dry food is a key factor in their health and development. The difference is visible in the kitten’s desire to wean and eat on their own. Moms love it ! Often times Moms are undernourished when they arrive and proper nutrition is the difference maker for both themselves and their babies starting at birth.

Best food out there for kittens and seniors

I foster neonate kittens and always use this food as it is the highest quality and gives these kittens the best chance. I also use it for my senior cat who has stomatitis and has had all his teeth removed, he loves this food and it helps keep the weight on him

New to the kitten world

I'm learning as I go through this process of raising kittens. My queen is a bag of bones 5 weeks after they were born. Today I bought this food and mom is back to full nursing, but the babies are full of energy!! Thanks for an awesome product!!

My little orphan Opal gets this mixed with some 2nd stage kmr to gain some weight and she loves it! Will continue using other stages when the time comes

Has to be good

In response to “holistic cat mom” where are these Ten Commandments of cat food ingredients listed and who wrote them with what educational basis? I will gladly forward to every other vet I know

Kit loves this.

Kit is 6 weeks old and we just graduated her from kitten formula. Kit absolutely loves eating the mousse especially if it has sauce. Kit sits on the can when she wants food. This is a pretty good sign she wants more mousse.

Great to hear she loved the food!
