HEALTHY DEVELOPMENT: An exclusive complex of antioxidants and vitamins supports a young kitten’s growth and development

EASY-TO-CHEW KIBBLE: Small, easy-to-chew dry kibble helps a nursing kitten transition from milk to solid food; a perfect complement to Mother & Babycat Wet Cat Food

HEALTHY DIGESTION: Highly digestible proteins and prebiotics help with digestive support

BRAIN DEVELOPMENT: Includes DHA to build a strong foundation for brain development, starting in the womb and continuing throughout a pregnant cat’s full term

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.)

Best food for transitioning kittens

I foster many young kittens, including those nursing with a momma cat. I find that the Babycat line of foods (canned and dry) are well-suited for those kittens transitioning to cat food from gruel or nursing. The food is palatable, the texture is appropriate, and the size of the kibble is small enough for tiny mouths. I also feed this to nursing momma cats to give them all the extra nutrition they need.

Great food, kittens love it.

Great products and the choice of bag size is really good? My British Shorthsir kittens (still under 4 months) love it. Royal Canin is a quality product.

Great food!

I foster orphaned kittens for a local shelter & this food is perfect for weaning baby kittens as it has very small morsels for feeding dry or soaking in formula. Very nutritious for mamas & babies.

I foster for my local animal shelter. I use this food for weaning kittens. The small kibbles are the perfect size for their tiny teeth and the quality nutrition is a must for healthy kittens.

Best for babies!

I love this for tiny kittens starting to eat some crunchy food. I use baby cat loaf to start.

Perfect for Mamas and small babies

I foster a lot of rescue Mama cats and their babies. The tiny kibble is perfect for babies that are just learning to eat. I like how you can add warm water to soften it up until they are ready to crunch the food. Of course it is nutritious for mom and the provides everything growing babies need. They love it also.

They love it

I only use this when I have kittens or a queen to feed and they absolutely love it. Never have a problem transitioning them and they seem to love the tiny pieces which are a good size and shape for any breed. They always go crazy for meal time (in a good way)

She Loves It!

Abandoned kittens found. According to get 4-5 wks. Started making slurry with milk replacement & Mommy & baby wet food. She prefers to eat out of a small bowl. When I leave for work, I leave her with some dry food, Momma & baby. Today she is another week older and she loves it!
