How Long Do Kittens Have To Eat Kitten Food?

Kittens typically start out on Purina Kitten Chow supplemented with a small amount of water. This is the same food that they will eat as adult cats for approximately two years, if not longer. Some kittens may need to be fed kitten formula or commercial kitten food until they are 12 weeks old and weigh about 2 ounces, at which point you can switch them over to adult cat food. However, since commercial cat foods cost more than most people expect a kitten to eat in a day, it’s probably best if you feed your kitten Purina Kitten Chow rather than an expensive specialty diet until he reaches 12 weeks of age.
