Until What Age Should Cats Eat Kitten Food?

Kittens eat a variety of foods in their first few weeks. Very young kittens need to have a high protein diet, just as adult cats do. Kitten chow is especially good for the transition from mother’s milk to solid food because it contains more calories and nutrients than baby food or kitten formula. In addition, the flavor of kitten chow helps kittens put on weight efficiently so they can grow quickly without becoming overweight when they start eating regular cat food at around 4-6 weeks old.

How much should I feed my kitten? Why do some feeders recommend feeding less while others recommend a higher amount?

There are 5 different categories that most reputable breeders will fall into: Small Breeds (less than 10 pounds): an average daily intake of 2 cups per day Large Breeds (10-20 pounds): 3-5 cups per day Medium Breeds (20 – 50 pounds): 6 – 8 cups per day Large Breed Dogs (>50 pounds): 9+ cups per day Feeding guidelines strongly depend upon each individual cat’s size and activity level within it’s specific breed type. These guidelines also change from one feline species to another depending on how active your pet is and what its natural prey would be like in terms of spending time out hunting/gathering etc… Your veterinarian has probably provided you with some basic information about your kitty’s nutritional needs based on her breed type but these general recommendations may not apply entirely to YOUR SPECIES OF CAT!
