Feeding Guidelines

RECOMMENDED DAILY FEEDING AMOUNTS USING A STANDARD 8 OZ MEASURING CUP.

AgeTotal Daily Amt / Frequency
3 - 6 weeks1/4 - 1/3 cup, 3 - 4 times a day
7 weeks - 6 months1/3 - 3/4 cup, 3 - 4 times a day
7 months - 1 year1/2 - 3/4 cup, 2 times a day

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.

A no-brainer :) My kitten loves this stuff!!

We just adopted a new kitten and she is only eight weeks old. I have had lots of cats, though none this young. We decided on this cat food for kittens because we used purina for cats and was successful with that. Aimee loves the food and loves to eat !!

She has incredible energy, playing quite a lot, but then quieting down and sleeping with one of us. For what I have seen, I would definately recommend this product, and I will be continuing to purchase it until Aimee becomes an adult. At that time we will go back to Purina for indoor cats.

My kittens like this food.

I own two kittens that are sisters from the same litter. They both love this food, which is good because it will help them grow big and strong! : )

Solved my kitten's digestive issues

I adopted a kitten off the street. We think she is about 6-8 months old. I started her off on Purina Kitten Chow because I trusted it. A few days later, I mixed some of IAMS kitten food in with her Kitten Chow. Immediately, there was a change in her stools. They became bloody, full of mucus, and smelled worse than the sewer she used to live in. Immediately, I took her to the vet thinking it could be parasites. Her "stools" (I use quotes because they were more mucus and blood than stools) came back clean. I switched her back to just Purina Kitten Chow. Within 24 hours the bleeding stopped and her stools had some form. They were what one might call soft stools. After a few days, her stools became normal firm stools. No bleeding, no issues. From now on, Purina Kitten Chow is the only kitten food I am feeding her.
