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.

Kitten Chow

Tried this for our older gal who was losing weight. She liked it at first but then seemed to tire of it. I thought the kitten formulation might help her put on a few pounds but it just didn't work out as I had hoped. But I would definitely recommend it for kittens (as Purina intended it to be)!

Perfect for Kittens!

I found five tiny kittens, abandoned. I had to bottle feed them for two months. After consulting my vet, I began to wean them from the formula (and feedings every other hour) to Kitten Chow. Success! Seven months later, my little cuties are thriving. My vet expressed pleasure and some surprise all five survived. I say it was thanks to love and Kitten Chow.

in the beginning

its always important to start things right. that's especially true when you are talking about kittens. my friend that runs a cat rescue takes in a lot of kitten litters that no one wants or they are abandoned. she always feeds them Purina kitten chow until they are old enough for one of the adult formulas. i have adopted 5 kittens from her over a three year period and they are all happy and healthy

perfect my kittens love it

I have two kittens I got them when they were 12 weeks old. We started them on an off brand kitten formula food and it did not agree with them. So we switched to kitten chow and my kittens love it! They eat all of there food and it dosent upset there tummy! I would recommend this to anyone with kittens.

After eating some kitty chow my kittens always seem more energized and happy. Glad they're growing to be big and strong!

Our Kittens

We took in a pregnant cat and started her on Purina Kitten Chow. When the kittens were able to be weened we started them on Kitten Chow as well. We have had no problems with them on it and they seem to love it! We will not buy anything else now!

Wonderful Kitten food!

When we first got our kitten this was the only thing that she would eat. I was confident to give her something that she not only enjoyed but was made lovingly! Thanks Purina!! :)
