The Beginners Guide To Animals (Finding The Starting Point)

How to Feed Your Kitty Like a growing child, your kitty has unique nutritional requirements. But if you give her a high quality, nutritionally complete diet and lots of clean water, she will easily grow into a healthy and beautiful adult cat. While you might be tempted to fast-track the process with additional helpings or supplements for maximum growth, don’t give in to the urge. When you talk about kittens growing up, things can get too fast, too much and too soon. Below are tips to help you feed your cat the way you should: Kitty Diet Transition
Animals – Getting Started & Next Steps
Nothing can be better than mother’s milk as far as giving your kitty a healthy start in life is concerned. Of course, once you’ve taken her home, you should give her kitten food. If you go with a brand different from that which she was weaned on, use the same kitten food she’s used to and, within about 7 to 10 days, switch her slowly to her new diet, raising the amount of her new food by 25% each time. On her first three or four days with you, for example, serve her 25% of her new food plus 75% of her old food, then make the split 50-50 until she’s totally familiarized with her new diet.

Cheaper Doesn’t Always Mean Better The cost of kitten food can range from insanely expensive to insanely cheap. Usually, less expensive pet foods are bursting with fillers to keep the cost down, which means you need to give your cat more of those foods so she gets the proper nutrition she needs. Pet food that uses a lower quality protein is not very digestible, and simply passes through your kitty’s system very quickly. As an effect, she doesn’t get the nutritional benefits you want to provide your kitty for maximum growth. Nutrition Timing Whatever food you buy for your kitty, make sure it’s for her. Your kitten needs to do a lot of growing on her first year, and kitten food is particularly created to make sure she gets all the proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals that will be required for normal development. If you switch her to cat food before it’s time, or if you keep giving her supplements or food made for extra large or giant breeds, the effects could be harmful. Yes, she could grow faster than you imagined, but she will have problems with her joints and bones when you actually becomes an adult. Moving into Adult Food A cat is generally considered an adult when she has reached around 90% of her adult weight. Kittens need their kitten food on their first year of life. If you can’t tell where on her growth curve your kitten is, have the vet check her so you know whether or not she’s developing normally.
