Small kibble texture is easy to chew: perfect for a kitten’s mouth and emerging teeth

An innovative combination of highly digestible proteins, fibers, and prebiotics helps aid older kittens’ developing digestive systems

Delivers a mix of proteins, minerals, and vitamins to meet the high-energy needs of this stage in a cat’s growth

By the time a kitten gets to be around 4 months old, their growth rate slows, but their activity levels skyrocket. With intensifying energy levels, developing bones, growing muscles, and emerging teeth, older kittens need a different kind of nutrition than a younger baby cat.
Royal Canin Kitten Dry Food gives your kitten a healthy start with nutritional precision: An innovative mix of highly digestible proteins, vitamins, and other essential minerals support their maturing digestive system and keeps their growing bodies strong. And an exclusive blend of antioxidants supports their developing immune system. Transitioning from Royal Canin Mother & Babycat wet and dry formulas is easy: the small, easy-to-chew kibble made specifically for kittens’ mouths.

The Cats Ate It?

To be honest, I have no idea how I can begin to review cat food… The simple fact is, I poured it in their bowl, and they ate it all; as cats can be extremely picky, I consider this the one and only necessary function of cat food. I did not taste it or attempt to interview the cats after they ate the food. They’re not very friendly interviewees… They tend to just look at you and walk away.

Maine Coon Kitten

Royal Canin was horrible for my kittens

We adopted our kittens at about 10 wks old. The foster had been feeding them Royal Canin Kitten Dry Food and I always thought RC was a good brand so I continued to feed it to them. They had diarrhea from the day we brought them home. They were tested and tested and tested for infections. We spent SO MUCH money at the vet. The vet recommended we switch them to the Royal Canin Hydrolyzed Protein HP Dry Cat Food and the diarrhea never improved. Finally after 3 months of severe diarrhea (kittens couldn't even hold it in, they were leaking uncontrollably) the rescue org's vet (who had nothing to gain from us) suggested switching them to a different brand. We got them completely away from RC food and started to see immediate improvements. After a few weeks their stool was totally normal. I have no idea what's in those two varieties of Royal Canin kitten/cat food but they were both horrible for our kittens.

My older cats liked it more!

My kitten just nibbled at it at first, I didn't think he liked it. On the next feeding time though he did eat some of it. I don't think it's his favorite. Seems like my older cats liked it a lot more than my kitten. They ate whatever the kitten left in the bowl.

Kitty approved

My kitten loved this. He was very picky, but this he dove right into. Would highly recommend for any and all kitten owners. Especially if you're having trouble getting your kitten to eat because they are picky.
