Kittens need approximately 1/3 of their body weight in protein each day. So, for example, if a kitten is 3 pounds (1 kg), they would need to eat 9 ounces (250 grams) of food daily. Most premium kitten foods contain the recommended amount of protein and are perfectly suitable as a sole source of nutrition for growing kittens. If you feel that your kitten isn’t getting enough protein, we recommend mixing with other high-quality ingredients such as vegetables and fruits to provide additional nutrients.
The number one concern from cat owners is how much their cats should be eating? The answer to this question may vary depending on the size and age of your cat – however there are several general guidelines regarding how much food fresh pet food needs:
Weight Amount* Amount** 5 lbs or less 1/4 cup per 10 lbs 2/3 cup per 20 lbs 3/4 cup per 30 lbs 4 cups per 40lbs 6+ cups 8+ cups
* Based on an adult cat weighing 7 lb or more at 11 weeks old ** Based on an average sized adult cat weighing between 15lb – 25 lb around 12 months old
