Great tasting nutrition for a long, happy life, Hills Science Diet has been precisely prepared to give your cat the nutrition she needs for lifelong health and happiness. Many cat and kitten foods will provide and meet the basic nutritional requirements to sustain life, however, higher quality food will result in optimal health and nutrition for your pet.

While there are some similarities in the nutrients in cat and kitten food, there are differences that are specific to assist with the development of a kitten's brain and muscles. Kitten food has higher protein and mineral levels, as well as more calories due to the active lifestyle of a kitten compared to an older cat who may not exert as much energy throughout the day.

When kittens are awake, they are full of energy and like to keep busy, but they are still young and do need to rest. For the first six months of a kitten's life, they spend most of their day sleeping but are constantly moving and active in the short amount of hours that they are awake. It is important that the food that a kitten is eating is packed full of all the nutrients a healthy kitten needs to grow into a healthy cat.

A consistent feeding schedule will keep your kitten from overeating and give you more control when it is mealtime. Having a range of different textures helps make mealtime exciting for your kitten. Hill's offers a range of both wet and dry food specially formulated for kittens that you can incorporate into your kitten's diet.

Feeding Guide:

You need to adjust the amounts of pet food you are feeding to your kitten to maintain an optimal weight, if you are unsure you need to speak to a veterinarian. Your pet's nutritional needs are constantly changing, especially during their first year, you should ask your vet at every checkup for any new or changed nutritional needs your cat may have.

Up until your kitten is 1 year old, they will need up to three times the amount of calories an adult cat needs in a day. Be sure to feed your kitten food that is specially formulated for kittens and the recommended amount of food required based on their age, weight or other dietary requirements.

Hills wet kitten food is highly recommended for kittens from the weaning stages up until they are 1-year-old as well as for pregnant and nursing cats. This cat food is not recommended for adult cats, which are 7 years plus and obese/obese prone cats.

It is essential that there is fresh and clean water available for your kitten at all times to prevent dehydration throughout the day. Cats usually prefer to drink running water, but if you keep their water bowl filled with clean and fresh water, they will be more likely to drink compared to water that has been sitting for days.

How should I begin the weaning process:

To start weaning kittens from Mumma cat, you need to start by separating the mother cat and her kitten for a few hours at a time, which will slowly decrease the kitten's dependence on its mother and her milk. As the kitten becomes more independent and socialised, they will be able to spend more time away from their mother until they are completely weaned.

Don't forget, there can be negative consequences from removing a kitten from its mother too soon, resulting in aggression and anxious behaviours. Kittens observe and learn from their mothers how they should act, therefore it is vital that a kitten is able to learn good habits from their mother while they are still young.

How do I teach a kitten to eat solid food:

As soon as your kitten shows an interest and starts trying to eat its mom's food, the process of introducing mushy wet food can begin. Gradually mix a kitten milk formula and wet food together to encourage the kitten to eat the pet food alone. Gradually adjust the ratio of wet food and formula until the mixture is primarily wet food. Remember to always provide fresh and clean water to your kitten to keep them hydrated throughout the day.

Tips to encourage the weaning process:

While it may be a challenge to begin the transition process from milk formula to wet food, you shouldn't be surprised that your kitten will play with the food. Play is a normal and healthy way for them to experiment and explore their environment.

Things will get messy but make sure you don't rush the process when your kitten steps in their saucer, spills the food everywhere and plays with their food because they are learning. Just make sure you clean up after them and that they have access to a clean water source after each meal.

3 Reasons your cat benefits more from wet food:

  1. Wet cat food promotes lean body mass due to the high levels of protein which assist with supporting the muscle growth of your cat.
  2. Many cats do not like water that stands still, resulting in them not drinking enough water throughout the day. Wet cat food promotes hydration in your pet due to the higher water content.
  3. Wet cat food adds more variety to your cat's diet, keeping your feline friend interested in the food given to them.
