Feeding Instructions

Kittens, by nature, like to eat small meals frequently throughout the day. In order to satisfy your kitten's nutritional needs and preferences, we recommend providing your kitten with Authority Dry Cat Food in the morning, allowing him to nibble throughout the day. Provide your kitten with a clean container of fresh water daily. Always consult your veterinarian with any health questions.

    They were happy. I was happy with the price. I also liked that there are no funky colors added so my older cats can have 5 or 6 as a treat.
