Feeding Guidelines

FEEDING KITTENS

Kittens generally nibble solid foods at 3 - 4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Purina Kitten Chow Nurture available to these kittens at all times. Just add one part liquid to three parts Purina Kitten Chow Nurture, changing frequently to ensure freshness. After weaning, at 6 - 8 weeks of age, kittens will normally eat dry or moistened food at will. Start a self-feeding program, leaving food in dish at all times. Feeding amounts should be adjusted as necessary to help your kitten maintain an ideal body condition. Because kittens continue to develop throughout their first year, it's important that they get the extra nutrition of Purina Kitten Chow Nurture for a full 12 months. After one year of age, transition to the Purina Cat Chow formula that’s right for your cat.

FEEDING FOR REPRODUCTION

Purina Kitten Chow Nurture provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female's good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.


 

FEEDING TIP

Changes in your cat’s diet should be made gradually to allow your cat to become accustomed to a new food. Substitute small amounts of the new food for the old food, gradually increasing the amount of the new food while decreasing the old food, over a period of 7 - 10 days. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.

Provide adequate fresh water in a clean bowl daily.

For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.

Kitty Loves It!

I recently adopted an underweight 6-month-old kitten. He refused to eat the grain-free "holistic" food that the rescue sent home with him. After two days, I bought some Purina Kitten Chow instead. He immediately began to eat it and is now a normal weight and size for his age. He has tons of energy and his coat is beautiful!

Kitten Loves This!

This is a great starter food for kittens, and can be used up until one year. My kitten is 8 months old and still eats this! She loves it.

She loves it

When we got our kitten we used the rest of the food she had then we switched to this brand and she always eats, I know she enjoys it. We do put a little water in it to make it a little softer since she is so young.

A trusted product

I have always had a cat as part of my life and I have always trusted my kitten's health to Purina Kitten Chow. (PS My chihuahua is rather fond of it too or maybe it's just the risk of getting caught by a kitten who is bigger than you are!)
