Cat food for your new little kitten

Cat food can be a little complicated if your cat is a particularly fussy. That is why it is rather important to start your kitten off on eth right cat foods when you first start to feed your kitten whole and shop bought foods. Kittens will start off their dietary life on milk and they will slowly start eating cat foods as they wean off of their mother. By the time that you get your kitten they should be around the age of 6 to 8 weeks old and you should be able to start feeding them on kitten appropriate cat food.

Many well known cat food brands make specially formulated kitten cat food that contains the extra and necessary nutrients that your kitten requires for a good and healthy start to life. These cat foods have extra calcium and other minerals to ensure that your kitten gets all that they need from their cat food for strong and healthy bones and for a good immune system that acts as a base for their health for the rest of their lives.

Finding the right cat food for your kitten is essential and an occasional treat here and there does wonders for their playfulness too!
