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.

Our cats love it!

Our cats love this food! They are VERY picky, but they love this stuff. They also have super sensitive tummies and this food doesn't bother them at all which is a big plus

Best Kitten Food on the Market

We have been feeding our kitten Purina and he loves it. I had tried other brands in the past but they either caused Julius stomach upset or he didn't like the taste. The Purina Kitten formula does not cause any digestive issues and our kitten is always eager for dinner with the Purina food.

Kitty loves it

I have always been a strong Purina support. Growing up this is all we fed to my cat so when I moved out and got my own kitten I knew I should stick with what I know and I bought the Purina Kitten Chow for my new kitty. He loved it! I actually had to take him off of it after just 7 months because the vet felt he was a healthy weight and could be switched to cat food.

Babies love kitten chow

My four legged babies just love purina kitten chow. Its amazing how smart they are at such a young age. My routine consist of kitten chow moistened with just enough warm water to get to the consistency needed, they know exactly the moment i scoop it into their bowls they can hardly wait until to chow down. Kitten chow really seems to be very pleasing to their tummies and they digest it very well. Kitten chow is an excellent product and would recommend it to anyone who has babies of the four legged kind.

keeping our kitten healthy!

I rescued this kitten after the momma cat had 6 and he was the runt of the litter and she wouldn't care for it. (she is our neighbors cat) I had to feed him milk until he was able to eat on his own and we added the Purina kitten chow. He loves it and seems very healthy and strong!

Not just for kittens

I read that kitten food is a good supplement for pregnant cats. Recently
I started feeding a very young pregnant stray. Mixed kitten food with the
Regular dry cat food so that she and her babies will have a healthy start.
She loved the combo.

Our Kittens Love It!

Our rescue kittens didn't even bat an eye when switching from their old kitten food to this one when we took them home. I would like to see a larger bag size option, as the small bag goes fast with two kittens. I picked this food as it had the best ingredients and best reputation of the foods I was considering. I will definitely be continuing to purchase this food for my kitties!

Yummy

My adopted CH kitty Frankie seems to really like his Kitty Chow. He ate another brand at the shelter so I was happy he eats this readily. CH kitties sometimes have issues with eating, but Frankie eats soft food twice a day and has Kitty Chow available always and eats as he needs.
