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.

My kittens love this over any wet cat food.

When I placed wet food and this food side by side in a bowl. Sure they went for the wet at first,but once they tasted the Kitten chow, they didn't even sniff the wet food!

Only Purina

My grandfather taught me only to buy Purina for my cats. He wouldn't buy any other brand because Purina was the only brand he didn't know to have frequent recalls of their pet foods. There may be cheaper brands out there, but the superior quality and safety of Purina is worth the money. Not to mention that my picky kitties turn their noses up at anything else! Purina brand is always the freshest and their kitten chow is soft enough for little guys, but not so soft that it gums up and makes it difficult to swallow or encourages them to swallow the kibble whole.

Great food for my little guy

Great food for my little one. He's so small so he needs all the nutrition a growing kitten should have. He loves it. It gives him the eagerly to run with the big cats!!

All my babies

I'm a second generation Kitten Chow user. We've had it in our house for as long as I can remember. I research all the food I feed my cats but I took it a step further. I bought two other kitten chows, which will remain nameless and put three bowls down in front of my kittens. After a quick smell of the others, every one ended up in the Purina kitten chow. Two actually smelled the others and looked up at me as if to say "You're kidding, right?" Even my older cats love the taste so much that it's often an effort to keep them away so the youngsters can eat.

outstanding

Baby 2 flips over Kitten Chow. It is halfway up my leg before the bowl is down. The cost is also ok.

Foster kittens love it!

I have from 10 to 30 foster kittens regularly. Before they are weened I begin making Purina Kitten Chow available to them. Mama cats love it and I'm sure they can use the extra nutrition. Kittens enjoy it and mature successfully on it. I like the convenience of the larger bags being readily available.

Kittens again

Having kittens again is awesome, two times in the same year just tops all!!
First time we loved when they try solid food from their mothers dish and quickly we switched to kitten chow, now as soon as this 4 babies are ready, we know they will enjoy.
