Baby cats grow so quickly that most dry cat foods aren’t suited for their nutritional needs. As baby cat transitions from its mother’s milk to eating solids, their immune systems are still developing and still benefit from receiving a mother’s milk. Royal Canin Mother & Baby Cat dry cat food provides your new kitten with everything it needs for healthy growth. Containing essential nutrients like DHA for brain development, highly digestible protein and prebiotics for a maturing digestive system, this unique and tiny-sized kibble can be easily rehydrated with warm water for a food that is softer and easier to ingest.
Mother and Babycat is designed specifically for mothers and young kittens (weaning to 4 months of age). The extra small kibble is uniquely designed to suit the kitten's milk teeth and can be rehydrated to ease the transition from milk to solid food.
Kittens grow in two distinct phases, both of which have very different nutritional requirements. The first stage is from weaning until 4 months. The second stage is from 4 until 12 months. During the first stage, your kitten grows very quickly, and important internal functions (such as the immune system) are developing rapidly.
Natural Defence Support
Between 4 and 12 weeks after birth, the immunity transmitted by the mother gradually decreases while the babycat’s own immune defences are not yet fully developed. Mother & Babycat helps support the development of the kitten's natural defences with prebiotics (MOS*) and a complex of antioxidants including vitamin E, vitamin C, taurine and lutein. * manno-oligo-saccharides.
Enriched with DHA to help support the kitten’s brain development.
At birth, the kitten’s digestive system is immature and it develops gradually over several weeks. That is why it is essential to support digestive health during this first growth phase. Mother & Babycat contributes to promoting digestive health with highly digestible proteins and prebiotics (Fructooligosaccharides, Mannanoligosaccharides).
Weaning is the transition from milk to solid food. A very small kibble, with a texture suited to the young kitten's jaw and milk teeth, helps facilitate food intake and stimulate appetite. The product can be rehydrated to ease the transition from mother’s milk to solid food.
