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

Baby cats grow so quickly and require tailored nutrition that meets their specific 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 scientific research and observation, Royal Canin continues to deliver targeted nutrition to feed every pet’s magnificence. Not satisfied? Then neither are we. Our formulas are 100% satisfaction guaranteed. (Just contact us for more details.)

Highly recommend

I tried this food with a litter of Ragdolls and absolutely love it! The kitties enjoy it, it’s smaller and easier to chew for them and I felt confident about them receiving proper nutrition. Price is high but you get what you pay for. Would recommend this food to anyone with a pregnant cat or litter of kittens.

Wonderful food for my little foster babies!

I use quite a bit of this food for my foster kittens. They seem to like the taste and small size of the kibble.

Great for mom and kittens!

Our rescue loves this for our moms to keep them healthy. When the kittens are weaned it's great for them too as starter food. They love the taste. Actually all cats do and we have to keep the adults away from it!

My wife and I foster and rescue kittens and cats. Usually the cats and kittens we get are not in the best health. We have found that mothers and their litters do very well eating this food. They gain weight faster, their coats look good plus it helps keep their digestive system operating properly. Best of all the mother and kittens like this food dry or with a little water added.

Mother and baby cat dry food review

I do kitten rescue and have found this to be the best to support young kittens when they begin to eat kibble. Very small in size and the kittens really like it.

Great kibble

I bought this for a litter of mom and babies and it sure helped the kittens when they started eating dry. Mom loved it and so did the ittens. The smaller pieces make it easier for small mouths but most of all they benefited from the nutritiont hey received.

The best dry kibble for weaning and young kittens

I rescue cats and kittens and Mother & Babycat is by far the best food that I have come across for small orphan kittens as well as kittens weaning from their mothers. I find the mom cats also LOVE this food! The kibble size is very small which is perfect for kittens under 12 weeks. I rescue at least a hundred kittens a year and go through bags and bags of Royal Canin. I HIGHLY recommend it!
