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.

Purrrrfect for Kitten

This food is just what kittens need! It has the right balanced nutrition specifically for kittens. My kitten loved this food, too, so I was confident she was getting the nutrition she needed. :)

Purina kitten chow

My kitten just loves this food! I started out moistening it. Now that she is a little older she likes it crunchy. It's great that she wasn't finicky with this. I didn't have the hassle of having to find another brand.

my babies LOVE IT

I will walk into an empty room and notice an empty bowl, as soon as I open the container and start to pour the kitten chow, my kitten ninjas come running from where their adventure has taken them and start to eat like they haven't eaten in a week! They have grown so fast and the vet says they are healthy! Thanks Purina!

Good Food

I have been feeding this product to my cat that I rescued that just gave birth to 2 beautiful kittens to help her gain some weight and to make sure the kittens are getting enough nutrients. The kittens are just 4 weeks old today but when they start eating on there own I will be feeding this to them, also. Great product. My cat loves it and I am sure the kittens will also. Great price for the quality also.

Starting out Right

All my cats have been fed Purina Kitten Chow for their 1st year of life.
I trust this formula and know that they are getting all the nutrients that a baby needs to help them grow strong & healthy. I also have given the Mothers-to-be Kitten chow for the extra calories & calcium & continued to feed them Kitten chow while they were nursing.
They all seem to love the flavor. 2 thumbs up for Purina...

Kittens rule!

My cat LOVES IT!!! We got a small bag to try it, we were a user of a different brand, but now use it a a regular basis and my cat is healthier and happier for it! He has a pretty coat and no bathroom issues. The other brand had been causing him gas issues, but Purina has solved that! He has since out grown the kitten formula, but we donate bags to our local shelters.

Feral kittens love it!

I was adopted by a feral mother cat and her 4 kittens. Being very allergic to cats and anything their dander is attached makes caring for this family tough at times. The kittens LOVE PURINA KITTEN CHOW! So does, Momma!
