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.

Kittens loved it!

All of my cats ate this as kittens. They are all healthy and I would like to think its because they started eating right at a young age! They seemed to love to taste!!

The right size

We just added 2 new members to our family. Fred and LiLboy. They are just wee ones and finding kitten food small enough for there kibble was what concerned us. With kitten chow we also wanted quality ingredients and vitamins that all growing kitten need. We are very pleased with this product and will not switch to another, they love it and run to the bowl every time. Thanks Perina

In demand

In the springtime I always come across a few litters in my outdoor colonies and to give the kittens good start in life, I feed them Purina kitten chow.

Loves it TOO much !!!

My kitten is now almost 7 months old, and I have had to start rationing his food. Seriously, I think he'd eat til he pops.
For the longest time there was no problem,,, then he found out what the other cats are getting fed, and wants his all to himself,,,whatever is put in his bowl he finishes. Guess he thinks they will get it, ( well, they would if we let them).

Love it!

In August of 2013 we found our fist kitten in 15 years. When we took her in she was the runt of her littler and just the tiniest frailest thing, and so cute:) but really small and weak. Purina® Kitten Chow® Nurturing Formula was great in helping her get stronger and helping her grow by giving her a great neutral start in life. She was on Purina® Kitten Chow® Nurturing Formula for about a month or two before moving to Cat Chow. She's now nearly full grown and more then able to keep up with and even out pace her big sisters:) And we attribute this to the great neutral start she got from Purina® Kitten Chow® Nurturing Formula:)

Very nutritional for the growing kittens

This has all the ingredients needed for the growing kittens. They seem to like the taste and ask for more.

All We Buy!!

We've had a few kittens roaming the house in the past year or so, and we have purchased this brand every time with excellent results! Our baby cats love it, and it's reasonably priced. Will certainly buy again if we ever have any more little ones running around!
