Thankfully, this doesn’t mean that you need to go poring (or pawing) through extensive scientific literature regarding cat nutrition and then carefully weigh out each component of your kitten’s meal. There are a variety of kitten foods on the market that contain everything you need to ensure your young feline friend has a healthy diet.
Hills cat food is a good choice for kittens, as their ‘Science Plan’ range of dry cat food is scientifically balanced to contain everything that kittens need, including antioxidants to help boost their immune system. Their ‘Kitten Healthy Development’ is a good choice to opt for, and also contains fish oil extracts. As they get older you might then want to move them onto quality wet food from a trusted brand, such as Sheba cat food.
In terms of how often you should feed your kitten, this can vary with the individual, but small meals given frequently are the general rule. Around five times a day is often a suitable number.
