‘Babycat’ is the name given to a kitten aged between one and four months old. (You could call it ‘cutestthingthateverlivedcat’ but that’s a bit of a mouthful.) Babycats have very particular dietary needs. As they wean from their mother, they slowly develop an increasing intolerance to lactose, which makes their digestive systems particularly vulnerable. At the same time, their milk teeth are only just coming in, so their ability to take on solid food is underdeveloped. In addition, a babycat’s immune system is immature and in need of support and strengthening.
All of this adds up to a vital period in the nutritional life of a cat. Royal Canin Mother and Babycat provides everything your little bundle of joy needs to make the transition into older kitten-hood. Highly digestible proteins and prebiotics support her vulnerable digestive system, while the very small kibble is custom designed for her small jaw and milk teeth. (The kibble can also be rehydrated to soften it.) A blend of quality antioxidants including vitamin E and C, taurine and lutein provide strength and support for her immune system, and DHA does important work in supporting the development of her brain.
