Do Kittens Need Different Food?
Cats are true carnivores, so to stay healthy they have to eat certain nutrients which are only found in meat or commercial cat food.
Feeding a complete, commercial cat food is preferable to a home-made diet as it is actually very difficult to achieve the correct balance of nutrients if you make a cat’s diet yourself.
Kittens DO NOT need treats. To avoid your kitten becoming obese don't give them any treats. You can give them treats when they are older and only on occasion but you must make sure they are healthy.
Take into account a number of factors when choosing what and how much to feed your cat including their age, weight, body shape, the food packet’s guidelines and veterinary advice. The best food for kittens is one that's been formulated specifically for their age. Kitten food is specifically formulated with high levels of protein, which is essential for proper growth. It also has higher levels of calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, zinc and iron to help build strong bones and teeth. Kitten food also contains more vitamin C and vitamin E, which help support kittens' immune systems.
