Mother & Babycat Dry Cat Food

Royal Canin Mother & Babycat Dry food is formulated for the specific needs of growing baby kittens (1-4 months) and queen cats (pregnant or nursing)

The benefits

  • Small, easy-to-chew dry kibble helps a baby cat transition from milk to solid food; a perfect complement to Mother & Babycat wet cat food
  • Promotes healthy digestive system development with highly digestible proteins and prebiotics
  • Includes DHA to build a strong foundation for brain development, starting in the womb and continuing throughout the mother cat’s pregnancy

Product description

Meat-first. Grain-free. Raw. With so many cat and kitten food options out there focused on ingredients, how do you know what’s best? Royal Canin knows there’s a science to it—researching each pet’s unique nutritional needs to formulate the most precise combination of nutrients in their diet to help your pet live a magnificent life.

Baby cats grow so quickly that certain kitten foods aren’t tailored to their nutritional needs. A mother cat’s milk has protective antibodies to support her kitten’s natural defenses. But as a baby cat transitions to eating solids, their immune systems are still developing. This “immunity gap” leaves a kitten in a fragile state. With growing bones, emerging teeth, and developing immune and digestive systems, they need the right nutrition to grow strong.

Royal Canin Mother & Babycat Dry Kibble feeds your young kitten’s magnificence from the very start with the building blocks needed for healthy growth: Essential nutrients like DHA for brain development. Immune system-strengthening antioxidants and vitamins. Highly digestible proteins and prebiotics for a maturing digestive system. And transitioning your newborn kitten to solid food is simple: The unique, tiny kibble can be rehydrated with warm water for a softer food that eases kittens to a more “grown-up” diet.

With nearly 50 years of obsessive research, Royal Canin continues to deliver precise pet nutrition. This diet is made to help your young cat reach their most magnificent potential—starting with their mother. Not happy with it? Then neither are we. Our formulas are 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Great food for compromised kittens

Volunteering for a non-profit cat rescue, we use this food for all our young kittens and nursing mothers. They all enjoy it and the small pieces they don't chock on

Love it!

We began using this at our cat rescue sanctuary after having lots of tummy issues with the brand we had been using. We tried several brands and stayed with the RC Mother and Baby Cat. The kittens prefer the taste over the other brands and the pieces are really small making it the perfect choice for our babies. Best of all though, all the tummy issues went away within a few days of switching to this amazing product.
