Do you feed a kitten the same way you feed an adult cat?
Kittens expend considerably more calories, pound for pound, than an adult cat for growth and to support
their high activity level. In our experience, feeding free choice is almost always
the best advice. Feeding a weaned kitten should be no different that feeding an
adult cat, as far as protein and fat are concerned. In the wild, kittens eat
mice and felines of every age eat mice. Cats in our homes should
be no different, high protein and fat are a necessity and starch/carbs less
than 6% is key to good health. When fed properly, every cat of every age can be
fed free choice.
