How to Feed a Kitten Like a growing child, your kitty has unique nutritional requirements. However, with a well-balanced diet and lots of clean water, she should become a healthy, beautiful adult cat before you know it. While you may want to give the process a quick start with extra helpings or supplements for maximum growth, don’t. When you talk about kittens growing up, things can get too fast, too much and too soon. The following tips should help you to feed your cat the correct way: Your Kitten’s Diet Transition
Animals – Getting Started & Next Steps
There’s no substitute for mother’s milk to give your kitty a great, healthy start in life. Of course, when you bring her home, she must eat kitten food. If you go with a brand different from that which she was weaned on, use the same kitten food she’s used to and, within about 7 to 10 days, switch her slowly to her new diet, raising the amount of her new food by 25% each time. On her first three or four days, for instance, feed her only 75% of her old food with 25% of her new food, and then make it 50-50 until she’s fully adapted to her new diet.

Cheaper Doesn’t Always Mean Better In terms of cost, there are so many kitten food choices out there, from wildly expensive to wildly cheap. Usually, less expensive pet foods are bursting with fillers to keep the cost down, which means you need to give your cat more of those foods so she gets the proper nutrition she needs. Pet food that uses a lower quality protein is not very digestible, and simply passes through your kitty’s system very quickly. As an effect, she doesn’t get the nutritional benefits you want to provide your kitty for maximum growth. Nutrition Timing When buying food for our kitten, make sure it’s food for kittens. Your kitten has to grow a lot during her first year, and kitten food is particularly intended to provide her all the proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals that are crucial to her normal development. If you switch her to cat food before it’s time, or if you keep giving her supplements or food made for extra large or giant breeds, the effects could be harmful. Yes, she may grow fast, but she will have problems with her joints and bones when she becomes a full-fledged adult. Transitioning into Adult Food In general, a cat is considered an adult when she has reached about 90% of her adult weight. Kittens need their kitten food on their first year of life. If you don’t know for sure where your kitty is on her growth curve, bring her to the vet so she can be checked, and you will know if her development has been normal.
