Each stage of kittenhood brings something new. In the beginning, they’ll sleep. A lot. But before you know it, they’ll be exploring the whole world around them! While this time is filled with discoveries, it’s also the most delicate of your kitten’s life.

From the start, Royal Canin’s Kitten Growth Program supports your kitten’s development and growing immune system, because we know that the right nutrition helps create the ideal foundation to a healthy life.  


From birth to 3 weeks.

At this intense but brief stage, your kitten sleeps... a lot. After a couple of weeks, they’ll start to practice their clumsy walk, slowly learning how to coordinate their steps. As they get to know their new world, their natural antibodies are still at a low level. The right nutritional support goes a long way for their natural defenses and fragile digestive system. 



From 3 weeks to 4 months.


As they become more autonomous, your kitten starts exploring and developing their motor skills. They’ll run, climb, and build up their most impressive talent —keeping perfect balance. Feeding them energy-dense nutrition, rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, supports their vision, cognitive development and muscle growth. 


From 4 months to 12 months.


At this stage your kitten’s growth will slow as they mature into a well-proportioned cat. They’ll begin to test their limits, even with humans, as they experiment and refine their social skills.Big changes, like getting neutered, can affect their metabolism, so it’s important to satisfy their appetite while protecting their healthy weight.


A mother’s milk has protective antibodies to support a kitten’s natural defenses. But as they transition to eating solids, their immune systems are still developing, and nutrition can help support them while they are building their own strong immunity.

Microbiome Support

Your kitten’s microbiome is like a mini-ecosystem that helps keep their digestive health in balance. Like humans, a kitten’s gut health affects their overall wellbeing. A combination of prebiotics and highly digestible proteins help promote a healthy and balanced microbiome. 

Bone growth

In their first year, a kitten’s bones must strengthen to be 4x stronger than concrete. Supporting this growth with the precise amounts of protein, vitamins, and minerals is important to developing a strong foundation for the years to come. 

Weight Management

Maintaining a healthy weight is important for a kitten’s future health and wellbeing. Healthy habits, set early, are key for the foundation to a healthy life.

A product range that grows with your kitten

As your kitten develops, their sense of smell, taste, and touch heighten. So, it's important to differentiate their textures and experiences at mealtime.
