What Should I Feed My Kitten?
Nutrients your furry calorie-burner needs to become a big cat
Bouncing, pouncing, chasing bugs, climbing the curtains — kittens are little activity machines. It’s no wonder they needs lots of protein, calcium, vitamins and minerals. Choose a high-quality food made especially for kittens. It will be easier for your kitty to digest, which means they’ll get more of the nutrients they need.
Great sources of protein include:
- Fish (salmon, trout, sardines, catfish, whitefish)
Meat, chicken and fish are also good sources of taurine, an important nutrient for your kitten’s heart health, vision, and digestion that might not always be listed on a food label.
Energy to burn
Your kitten needs almost twice the energy per-pound as an adult cat. Keep their engine purring by feeding them three times a day until they’re six months old, then twice a day until they’re a year old.
Kittens and cats should have access to plenty of clean, fresh water at all times.Shop kitten formula cat food
