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.

Purrfect for my kitty

King absolutely loves Purina kitty chow. Anytime I'm in the kitchen he meows at me until I can pour him a bowl...he is the cutest thing he really does love his food.

Still a kitten after 10 years

The first food I ever gave my beautiful cat at two months old was Kitten Chow and it made him a healthy, energetic, happy kitten. He's now ten years old and eats the other Purina chows, but every so often I give him a treat--a bowl of his loved Kitten Chow. (He still acts like a kitten, why not promote that?) When ready for adult food he easily adapted to Indoor Cat Formula and now eats a variety of Purina foods.

CatChow

Purina kitten chow is such a good product! Its all I bought for my kitten when she was old enough to eat dry food. She must have liked the flavor because she always ate it very quickly. Sometimes now if I buy different brands she wont eat it.

Delightful for kittens!

Every time we adopt a new kitten, we give them this as their first dry food and they absolutely love it. They enjoy the taste and it is a great value.

Excellent Choice for Kittens

When our cats were kittens we we fed them Purina Kitten Chow. They loved it! Purina Kitten Chow will be the food of choice when we bring another kitten into our home.
