Description

Whether you love cats for their beauty, their elegance or their agility, a cat is above all a companion. That’s why lifestyle, sensitivities and age are all crucial considerations when it comes to choosing the right nutrition. Royal Canin Mother & Babycat is designed to meet the specific nutritional needs of mothers and young kittens. During the first stage of growth, your kitten grows very quickly and important internal systems are developing rapidly, so feeding the right nutrition is crucial.

Key Benefits

  • For pregnant and lactating queens and kittens from weaning to 4 months of age
  • Helps support a kitten's natural defenses with prebiotics and antioxidants
  • Promotes digestive health with highly digestible proteins and prebiotics
  • Very small kibble with an adapted texture helps facilitate food intake and stimulate appetite
  • The kibble can be rehydrated to ease the transition from mother’s milk to solid food

  • So glad I bought this!

    By on

    You see, the breeder told me that the litter was weaned at 8 wks and was eating kibble with no issues. I was impressed by this and made sure that I bought the same kibble so that my kitten could enjoy a familiar diet in his new home. I noticed that he was only eating about half of the recommended portion of the Earthborn Holistics Primitive Feline kibble I fed him, even when it was moistened with water, or mixed a kitten pate. Honestly, I only times I saw him eat is the few bites he took when I dumped the old and put out new food in the AM and again in the PM. I know he was not putting on enough weight, so I mentioned this during a follow-up kitten visit with the vet, and asked if there might You see, the breeder told me that the litter was weaned at 8 wks and was eating kibble with no issues.

I know he was not putting on enough weight, so I mentioned this during a follow-up kitten visit with the vet, and asked if there might have been something wrong with my kitten teeth, since he clearly had an interest food but wasn't eating enough. The vet recommended that I try the Babycat, so ended up buying some at a nearby pet supply store the same day. I mixed in the recommended portion with a little of the kibble that we already had and gave it to my kitten and he ate RAVENOUSLY! It has only been 3 days and I see a huge difference already. My kitten is now making regular trips to eat, until ALL the food is gone. I hate to say it, but the breeder clearly made a bad call. The Babycat kibble is small enough to fit in my kittens mouth so that he can eat and actually be satiated. … more

  • RECOMMENDED FOR MY TOO-THIN MY SENIOR CAT

    By on

    My 13 y/o female cat had lost 3 # and was needing lots of healthy calories, so the vet recommended kitten food. I studied the calorie values for several brands and types of food on CHEWY.com's helpful product info to find some food that was as close to what she's used to, but with tons of calories and found the same food she's used to, only for kittens. She's doing well and slowly putting on weight nicely! THANKS CHEWY! CHEWY's handy delivery helps me SO much. I LOVE CHEWY.COM!!

  • A Must Have For Mom's and Kittens

    By on

    Amazing product! It was recommended by a group I am in. I keep my pregnant female/s and kittens on this until they are 12 weeks old. My female/s handle it well, no upset, etc. They maintain weight and great overall health. My fussiest girl loves it. I don't worry that they are not getting everything they need. Kittens can easily eat the small pieces and are noticeably heavier, beautiful soft coats, bright eyes, lively, active and I love what I am seeing. I was blending Blue Buffalo Kitten Health and IAMS Kitten, which are great. I just feel like this is so much better. Highly Recommend. Just try a bag and see what you think. You won't be disappointed.

  • Poor cats have 2 teeth left

    By on

    My poor Siamese only have a few teeth in their mouths, so their vet (who specializes in just kitties) highly recommended this brand and this line (since the pellets are smaller). Is this brand a little more expensive than the others? Sure it is. But I love my cats and want them to live a long time with the best food I can afford to buy them.

  • Only food I use for small kittens

    By on

    I raise bottle-fed kittens and this is the only kibble I will give them when they are transitioning from the bottle. It is very tiny pieces and the kittens can eat it without a problem.

  • Perfect kitten food

    By on

    I use Royal Canin BabyCat dry and canned. The dry pellets are much smaller than the leading store brand kitten food, which I like. My kittens love the taste, too. I feel confident in the nutrition. They were abandoned by their mother and entirely hand-raised with formula. One of them had been critically ill for the first few weeks of his life and had nearly died. I was very concerned about getting them the best food possible when they transitioned off formula. They're now 11 weeks old, and both are healthy and strong. I'm sure the nutrition they're getting in this food has a lot to do with that. I recommend both the dry and the canned.

  • Great food for Mom's and Babies!

    By on

    Best food we have tried for our kitties. Both the adults and kittens can eat and do very well on. Really easy for kittens starting to eat dry food without having to waste so much wetting it.

  • A great alternative to the Royal Canin Kitten formula

    By on

    I recently adopted two kittens and this variety was recommended to me over the kitten formula due to its shape and texture. This food is a bit softer and is shaped in small squares. The kittens love it, and I feed them this dry food in addition to the Royal Canin Baby Cat wet food formula. It is worth the higher price point!

  • Excellent food for kittens

    By on

    We use this (along with Royal Canin canned food) regularly for our foster kittens. All of our kittens love it. The pieces are tiny.....it's perfect for kittens.
