How to Feed Your Kitty As with every growing child, your kitten has unique nutritional needs. However, with a well-balanced diet and lots of clean water, she should become a healthy, beautiful adult cat before you know it. Though you may be tempted to jump-start the process with more helpings or supplements than necessary, resist the urge. When it comes to kitten growth, excesses can make a whole of difference. The following tips should help you to feed your cat the correct way: Your Kitten’s Diet Transition
Animals – Getting Started & Next Steps
Nothing can be better than mother’s milk as far as giving your kitty a healthy start in life is concerned. Of course, when you’ve brought her home, she should eat food for kittens. If you pick a brand different from what she was weaned on, keep using the same kitten food she started with and take about 7 to 10 days to slowly switch her to her new food, increasing the amount of her new food by 25-percent increments. For instance, on her first three or four days, give her 25% of her new food and 75% of her old food, then make this 50-50 after three or four days, until she’s completely accustomed to the new food.

Cheaper Doesn’t Always Mean Better Kitten food costs can vary wildly out there, from the ridiculously expensive to the ridiculously cheap. Usually, less expensive pet foods are bursting with fillers to keep the cost down, which means you need to give your cat more of those foods so she gets the proper nutrition she needs. Pet food that makes use a lower quality protein is hardly digestible, and just speeds through your kitty’s system. The result is a lack of nutritional benefits that could boost your kitty’s growth. Good Nutrition Timing Whatever food you buy for your kitty, make sure it’s for her. Your kitten needs to grow a lot in her first year, and kitten food is produced to address her particular protein, fat, vitamin and mineral requirements for normal development. Giving her cat food before the right time, or supplements or any food intended for much bigger breeds, can lead to harmful effects. Yes, she may grow fast, but she will have problems with her joints and bones when she becomes a full-fledged adult. Transitioning into Adult Food Once your kitty weighs about 90% of her adult weight, then she is generally considered an adult. Certainly, kittens will need their kitten food on their first year of life. If you don’t know for sure where your kitty is on her growth curve, bring her to the vet so she can be checked, and you will know if her development has been normal.
