feeding guide

These are the recommended feeding amounts based on the ideal body condition for kittens and pregnant/nursing adult cats of various weights. Individual kittens’ and cats’ energy requirements may differ. Adjust the amount fed to obtain or maintain your kitten’s and cat’s optimum weight. Keep fresh drinking water available at all times, provide plenty of exercise and see your veterinarian regularly. Serve dry or lightly moistened. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location.
