Feeding Guidelines

These are the recommended feeding amounts based on the ideal body condition for kittens and pregnant/nursing adult cats of various weights. Individual cats’ energy requirements may differ. Adjust the amount fed to obtain or maintain your cat’s optimum weight. Keep fresh drinking water available at all times, provide plenty of exercise and see your veterinarian regularly. Every cup of our food is nutrient dense so your cat gets the right amount of calories in a complete and nutritious meal. To help maintain freshness, seal bag tightly and store in a cool, dry location.
Kittens: Serve dry or slightly moistened in multiple meals throughout the day.
Pregnancy/Lactation: During pregnancy, offer 50% more and during lactation offer at least two to three times more than the amount shown for kittens 40 to 52 weeks of age.

My cat of 13
| sangitap3

My cat of 13 years was having olive green bilious Vomiting. Multiple vet visits resulted in no definitive diagnosis. She would eat tuna from a can and baked chicken but only small amounts. Tried various brands of cat food with little success. Stumbled on this at Pets plus and bought the kitten food as the kibble was smaller. My cat loved it. Still occasionally has emesis, but this seemed to calm her gut. Will be buying more of this kitten food for her. She also liked the seafood fancy feast kibble in the green and white bag, the purina proplan complete chicken flavor with probiotics , and grain free American journey duck flavor.

My cat is about 20 years old. Since she started the diet she has been more active and has more mobility.
