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.)

I love it! Just wish there was a larger bag!

This food has been a literal life saver for my finicky special needs rescue. My sweet girl will not eat any sort of wet food at all, refuses moistened kibble as well but she has issues with her immune system that can cause mouth ulcers making it harder for her to eat sometimes. Since finding babycat however she is not only surviving but thriving! The little bites are perfect for her small mouth even when she’s having a flare up. She’s just hit a year old but is still a petite miss. But she loves this food and has so much more energy now as well! My single complaint is I wish it came in a larger bag then 7lbs.

Awesome for orphaned kittens

We bought this to transition an orphaned kitten to sold food at 4 weeks. Tux started at only 3/4 of a lb at 3 weeks old and using the soft Baby and Mama Royal Canin has brought him up to 1 lb at 4 weeks. He seamlessly transitioned to the kibble soaked in water at 4 weeks and is now up to 1 lb 6 oz at 5 weeks. Thank you Royal Canin for being part of our rescue success story.

Perfect starter food

We start offering dry Baby cat to our kittens at 4 weeks. It's the perfect bite size for them.

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

Fabulous Food

I have been fostering a lot of cats with young kittens and found this to be the best food to use. I love the quality ingredients and the satisfaction of knowing that I am providing the queens and their babies the best possible nutrition!

Great product

I have been using this brand for quite some time and my cats are happy, healthy, and full of energy! They love it!

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.
