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.

Recommended Daily Feeding Amounts using a standard 8 oz measuring cup.

Great product.

This formula has always brought my weaker kittens up to strength quickly! It's also great for pregnant cats in their final gestation. Highly recommend this brand.

I thought I found a kitten!

I found what I thought was a kitten in my backyard so I ran out and bout Purina Kitten Chow, I offered the kitten a bowl of it and she ate it so fast! I later found she isn't a kitten but between 1-2 years old, she only weighed 3 lbs. but she's enjoying her kitten chow but now I will change it to Purina Cat Chow Naturals.

Rescued Kittens

We recently rescued two kittens and was hoping to find another home for them since we already have two cats, but we fell in love with them and I knew I couldn't give them up. Their first dry food of course, was Kitten Chow. I trust that it will provide the nutrients they need to grow healthy and strong.

Of course they love it!

This is the food that I gave my cat until he was 1 year old. He seemed to grow up to be very healthy. Of course, he loved it!

Great Stuff

I have 4 cats of my own & 2 that I foster, I got food from the vet for the foster kittens as we were trying to wean them...they preferred the Kitten Chow to the vet food...I have always used kitten chow for my furbabies and will continue to do so for my fosters.

Best for kittens!

I rescued two feral newborns- their mother is no longer with us, unfortunately. When we went from bottle to choosing a dry cat food, Purina Kitten Chow Nurturing Formula certainly fit the bill of what we were looking for for our babies' little tummies. It wasn't hard on their systems and they grew up to be healthy adults! We are very pleased with Purina products, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good choice in cat food.
