The Nicest Thing You'll See Today
What should you feed your kitten? What should I feed my kitten
A good quality commercial kitten food will provide your little one with the right balance of nutrients he needs; it will be formulated to cater to his specific nutritional needs. As kittens need specific amounts of proteins and carbohydrates to grow, we always recommend feeding them specially formulated kitten food. If the food label says 'complete' this means it contains everything your kitten needs to stay healthy. If it is marked 'complementary', then it should be fed with other foods.
A kitten's taste in food is influenced by what his mother ate and enjoyed. However, cats' tastes in food are as individual as they are - some kittens will grow up to enjoy a variety of foods, others will prefer either dry or wet food, while some will be keen to try human foods. Dry food has benefits for your cat's dental health. Wet food provides your cat with vital liquid intake and can be useful for mixing in some medications if he is a reluctant pill-taker. Fresh foods, such as cooked chicken, can be good for boosting a lacking appetite and are easy on the tummy in times of illness.
