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.
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.

We have 3 8 week-old kittens and were feeding them another brand of food. I decided to try this brand because it comes in a much bigger bag. My girls love it! It has the same ingredients as the other brand, so I'm sold!
I have six kittens born6/24/2013 and 6/25/2013 and mama ran out of milk after 3 weeks so I bought Nurture. Adding a little warm water and evaporated milk for a few weeks made them grow into beautiful babies that we love. Now they enjoy the Nurture dry every morning.
great product, Lilly loves it & it doesn't make her sick!! wish they sold it in bulk!
Whenever a new mama cat arrives to my colony, she's always pregnant. So once the babies are yeaning off her milk I introduce the kittens to a plate full of this. Their tiny paws on the plate and their tiny mouths just munching away on this delightful treat- their dry food.
I love Purina Kitten Chow. Its the only thing I will feed my babies. Its all I recommend to anyone with a kitten. It provides complete nutrition and helps my babies grow up big and strong.
when my cats were kittens it not good to feed than cat food thats why this is good
Only one I trusted! The one I started my cat on when she was a kitten!
When my cats were old enough to eat dry food, ourina kitten chow was the only food they liked to eat. I will feed this food to all the kttens that I will have.
I used this when my cats were kittens because of the quality. It is a trusted brand.
While I don't currently have any kittens at home/fosters, I do know that Kitten Chow is a staple food for many, many cat shelters, individuals, fosters, etc. etc. and others that deal with kittens. It provides growing kittens with a good solid start in life nutritionally, after they are weaned off of mom's milk of course. When groups are in need of kitten food, it's what I always donate and would use for my own kittens when I foster again. Thank you Purina
