How to Feed a Kitten As with every growing child, your kitten has unique nutritional needs. But if you give her a high quality, nutritionally complete diet and lots of clean water, she will easily grow into a healthy and beautiful adult cat. 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. These tips can help you to feed your cat the right way: Kitten Diet Transitioning
The 10 Most Unanswered Questions about Supplies
Nothing can be better than mother’s milk as far as giving your kitty a healthy start in life is concerned. Of course, when you bring her home, she must eat kitten food. If you pick a brand different from what she was weaned on, keep using the same kitten food she started with and take about 7 to 10 days to slowly switch her to her new food, increasing the amount of her new food by 25-percent increments. For instance, on her first three or four days, give her 25% of her new food and 75% of her old food, then make this 50-50 after three or four days, until she’s completely accustomed to the new food.

Cheaper Isn’t Always Better The cost of kitten food can range from insanely expensive to insanely cheap. Typically, less expensive pet foods come with fillers for the purpose of keeping the cost down, meaning you need to feed your cat so much more of those foods before gets the level of nutrition she needs. Pet food that is made from a lower quality protein is barely digestible, and only speeds through your kitty’s system. As an effect, she doesn’t get the nutritional benefits you want to provide your kitty for maximum growth. Good Nutrition Timing Whatever food you buy for your kitty, make sure it’s for her. Your kitten needs to do a lot of growing on her first year, and kitten food is particularly created to make sure she gets all the proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals that will be required for normal development. If you feed her adult cat food, give her supplements or any food meant for much larger breeds, the results can 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 A cat is generally considered an adult when she has reached around 90% of her adult weight. Kittens need their kitten food on their first year of life. If you’re not sure about your kitten’s position on her growth curve, take her to the vet so you know where exactly she is and whether or not her development has been progressing normally.
