Royal Canin Kitten Instinctive is a complete food for kittens between the ages of 4 and 12 months and can also be fed to gestating queens. The food has been specially adapted to suit the energy needs and general demands of young kittens and gestating queens. It has been formulated to meet the exact nutritional profile to benefit kittens. It is also the profile which kittens naturally prefer the most and is highly palatable. The small chunks in gravy are easily chewed by new teeth and are rich in flavour. The food is also highly digestible due to its consistency. Added vitamins and minerals will help to boost your kitten's immune system for an excellent head start in life.

If we cannot do so within 3 working days we will contact you by email.

Delivery of temperature controlled items

Some products, such as insulin and frozen food, need to be delivered in insulated packaging to prevent them from getting too warm (or too cold) during transit from us to you.

You only pay the £1.99 once per order, regardless of how many temperature controlled items you purchase in that order.

What is yeast in royal canin pouch jelly kitten food


Is yeast safe for kitten. Is sugar safe for kitten.

  • Non-Executive Director

A small amount of yeasts and sugars are naturally consumed by cats and are regarded as perfectly safe, perhaps beneficial, in very small amounts. Neither should be present in large quantities. Royal Canin foods are all formulated with the utmost care, using extensive nutritional knowledge. There are lots of different opinions regarding what makes the best diet and many, very well informed people have totally different opinions. However I am confident that Royal Canin foods can be regarded as safe and of good quality.
