Kittens grow in 2 unique phases. In the 1st phase (weaning to 4 months) the babycat’s immune system is fragile. The transition from milk to solid food is a delicate time and can create digestive issues for the babycat. Proper nutrition is essential in helping babycats get off to a healthy start. MOTHER & BABYCAT is for Queens during gestation and lactation & for kittens in the 1st growth stage: weaning to 4 months.

Product Information

Between 4 and 12 weeks after birth, the immunity transmitted by the mother decreases gradually while the kitten’s own natural defenses are not yet fully functional. MOTHER & BABYCAT helps support the kitten’s natural defenses with prebiotics (MOS*) and a complex of antioxidants including vitamin C, vitamin E, lutein and taurine

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 the growth phase. MOTHER & BABYCAT contributes to promoting digestive health with highly digestible proteins and prebiotics (FOS† and MOS*).

Weaning is the transition from milk (mother’s milk or milk replacement) to solid food. A highly palatable, tiny kibble, with a texture adapted to the 1st phase kitten’s jaw and milk teeth, helps facilitate grasping and chewing of the kibble to help stimulate the babycat’s appetite. The kibble can be re-hydrated to ease the transition from milk to solid food.
