Feeding Your New Kitten

Diet is the bricks and mortar of health. This applies to cats as well as humans. Putting a little thought into what you feed your kitten can pay big dividends with their improved health over their lifetime.

However, choosing which cat food is the most beneficial isn’t always easy.
Feeding your new kitten properly is one of the most important things you can do to make sure your kitten grows into a healthy adult cat. Choosing the right kitten food is one of the first things to consider, as kittens have nutritional needs that are different than those of mature cats. Choosing a food which is formulated for growth is necessary.

FourFriends naturally hypoallergenic Super Premium quality ‘Kitten’ provides nutrients in perfect balance for normal growth and development. It also contains Aloe Vera as standard which is well known for supporting the immune system and is excellent for digestion.

In our high protein Kitten food, 92% of the total protein comes from animal origin. FourFriends Kitten is naturally preserved with Vitamin E and is free from chemical preservatives. The Aloe Vera content will boost the kitten’s vitamin and mineral intake. It also has antioxidant and antibacterial properties which will keep the kitten healthy as it grows.

Cats need taurine in their diet food to prevent blindness and certain kinds of heart disease. Cats cannot produce taurine themselves so this needs to come from their diet.

Meat is rich in taurine but to be on the safe side FourFriends adds extra into the food.

Once you have chosen gluten free FourFriends as the best food for your kitten, stablishing a feeding schedule a good idea. A feeding schedule for your kitten allows you to control the kitten’s diet more easily and make sure your kitten does not overeat and gain too much weight.

Your new kitten should eat three times daily. You can arrange the schedule to fit in with your own routine, although it is best to keep a consistent routine from day to day.

Use the feeding guidelines on the food label as a starting point to determine how much to feed your kitten. Split up the daily portion into three equal parts and feed 1/3 at each feeding. The feeding guidelines provide a starting point but you’ll need to monitor your cat’s body condition and adjust accordingly.
