• 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.*Mannanoligosaccharides†Fructooligosaccharides
