Little Timmie Tiger Loves this product! I am glad it has some wheat product in it. My cat vet tells me it is better for my baby that the food without any wheat product. I trust her and Timmie LOVES it!!
I was introduced to this pate by my kitten’s breeder. He’s been eating it since he was weaned. The smooth texture makes it easy for him to lick up. He’s always excited for meal time and looks forward to eating this!
The can is bigger than necessary for a kitten (and I know it says for mother cat, but I just have the kitten), so I scoop out half, put the rest in the fridge with a nice seal cap from her vet - and all is well with the world. This is an expensive brand, but I think that if you give your cats good nutrition you save on vet bills over time.
With my first litter of kittens, I bought royal Canin kitten pate and combine that with Iams kitten dry food. They loved it so much, I’m pretty sure I bought out the company. With my second litter of kittens, they ate it because they were hungry. Now they almost refuse to eat it. I trapped the mom with them, so when I feed her Meow Mix, they want to eat that instead of their expensive kitten food. They are so picky that they will not eat wet adult Meow Mix pate mixed with the Iams dry kitten food. My coworker has a very similar experience with a kitten she trapped at work. She informed me that she also struggled to find a kitten food they will eat. She said Wellness kitten food is what her kittens will eat, but she was also a Royal Canin person. We both spent a lot of money on kitten food that’s just sitting there. We will give it to charity soon.
This is wet food for lactating moms and cats aged 0 to 4 months, which Royal Canin specifically refers to as "babycats" (their lineup for "kittens" begins at four months). The soft mousse texture of this food is well-designed and very easy for newborn cats to eat. The label does include all the essential nutrients they need to support healthy growth and development. Based on my experiences, the cats love the taste of this wet food, and it's digested without creating tummy issues. The only con would be the price; it's expensive if you have a big litter of kittens.
My kitten liked the taste of it, but it gave him diarrhea, bloating, and gas. Poor little guy started to not want to eat at all. Thankfully, I had some cans of Fancy Feast kitten food around still, and he's thriving on that with no other changes. I looked closer at the ingredients of the Royal Canin versus the Fancy Feast, and Royal Canin has wheat gluten and Carrageenan in it, either one of which could cause problems. I don't know why they put it in food for cats, much less kittens! I would give this food zero stars, if I could.
The moist mousse is easier for them to eat and I never had a kitten that didn't love it. They all gain weight nicely.
This product is a miracle worker. It has saved so many orphaned, sick kitties and debilitated cats and made all the difference in getting them on the road to recovery. Love this stuff!
The cat I am fostering absolutely loves this food. Lila was clearly pregnant when I took her in and she has since given birth to eight kittens. I am reassured that she is getting her nutritional needs met despite nursing so many babies. The kittens are thriving so pretty soon it will be time to see how they like it.
We (Furever Friends cat rescue ) had a momma cat who had stopped eating and we had tried everything. A friend brought this to try and it worked. Momma is doing much better now and even her kittens are enjoying it.
