Feeding Guidelines
Switch your kitten from mother’s milk to solid food at 4-5 weeks. To ease the adjustment, MAX® CAT Kitten food may be moistened with water. Add one part water to three parts food. Daily portions can vary according to age, activity, and temperament of your kitten. The entire suggested daily amount should be placed in your cat’s feeding dish. Pregnant or nursing cats will benefit from the special amino acid balance and higher levels of vitamins and minerals in MAX® CAT Kitten food. Keep your pregnant or nursing queen in top condition with MAX® CAT Kitten food then return to MAX® CAT Adult cat food after weaning. A supply of fresh drinking water should be provided at all times. See your veterinarian regularly.

Product Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Healthy and Flavorful As a certified veterinary technician, I know how important it is to feed pets high-quality food and Max Cat is one of the best. My cats love the taste, their coats are shiny, and they do not soil the litter pan as much as they would on other foods. The only thing I would change about the kitten formula is the size of the pieces. Little ones have a hard time getting those large bits into their mouths. I foster abandoned kittens and feed them Fromme until they are old enough to eat the larger sized pieces of Nutro because I really don't have time to crush the Nutro in a sandwich bag with a mallet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kittens Love It After getting my kitten back in May, I wanted to make sure we got a healthy food for him to eat. After reading online recommendations, I decided to go with this food (& the equivalent for our dog.) They both love it and we havent had any issues. We recently got a second kitten & he love the food as well & no issues thus far. January 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kittens in the Kitchen We have four kittens and one adult cat in our home. They LOOOOVE the kitten roasted chicken flavor food!! We used to keep the biggest bag we could buy of it on the kitchen counter, but when we are not home, the kittens will push the bag off the counter and spill it on the floor to eat it!! As a solution, we bought those cereal plastic containers and put the cat food in there, but my little brother recently mistook it for cereal and ATE IT! I think he liked it too! :P Our kittens (and brother) are growing strong from the real protein!! :D On a side note, this brand is a little pricier but because it has more real protein, it fills them up quicker and they eat less of it to get full (which is a must have with five cats!!) Great addition to the wet food! March 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The only food our kittens start on! I have been breeding and showing Maine Coons for 22 years. I start my kittens on Max Cat Kitten and have never experienced digestive issues as they transition from mother's milk to dry food. They gain well, have bright eyes and great coats. All the kittens are sent to their new homes with a bag of Max Kitten and instructions to continue them on Nutro Max products for their lifetime for happy, healthy kittens and cats! March 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by my girls have the most gorgeous coats! I've been a long time user of Nutro foods, but it had been a long time since I'd had any need for the kitten version until earlier this year when I fostered then adopted Bookay and Lilybear (sisters). They love their crunchy food, and I've never seen such gorgeous gleaming coats. We also love the 'wet' kitten food as a daily treat! Thanks, Nutro. March 13, 2011
