Product Information
BABYCAT INSTINCTIVE features the optimal balance of proteins, fats and carbohydrates at this stage of a kitten's development. This helps to ensure a kitten enjoys its meal, and benefits from all of the nutrients included in the formula.

Between the 4th and 12th week of a kitten’s life, the immunity transmitted by the mother gradually diminishes. This is a very vulnerable time in a kitten’s development, because their own immune system is not yet fully developed. BABYCAT INSTINCTIVE includes a specialized antioxidant complex (vitamins C and E, lutein and taurine) and prebiotic MOS* to help support the development of a kitten's immune defenses.

BABYCAT INSTINCTIVE features a proven Macro Nutrient Profile that is instinctively preferred by kittens. This profile represents the ratio of energy derived from proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. A Macro Nutrient Profile also influences long term palatability and dietary satisfaction. A cat’s specific Macro Nutrient Profile varies not only according to its age, but also the cat’s physiological condition.
