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.

    My cat didn’t like it

    By Steph on Nov 1, 2020

    My cat didn’t like it, she’d have rather starved than eat it, and she isn’t a picky cat either.

    Excellent starter food

    By sonolouy1 on Apr 16, 2020

    I bought this for my cats when they first came home. The price is very competitive with higher end foods, with the same quality. Both cats loved it, and transitioning to adult food a year later was super easy.

    Kitten and adult cat want it

    By stonern7 on Dec 20, 2019

    When we rescued our Calico kitten we were told this was the food she was eating. Problem our 12yo cat wants it too. It gives both of them smelly gas and stools. But our cat was over weight has now started to slim down and the kitten is growing beautifully. We are going to be switching to Eartborn Holistic because the food is made for kitten and cat.

    Great food and great price!

    By Kiko on Sep 16, 2019

    I currently have 2 kittens and in the past have fostered dozens of kitties. This food has good ingredients and I've never had a kitty who hasn't liked it. Good price. Kibbles may be a little big if you have a small kitten. My 2 pound kitten used to have a hard time with it. Overall, great food and affordable.

    They love it!

    By FullHouse on Oct 12, 2019

    Tried a few other brands for our 3 rescue kittens but this is their favorite. One kitten (the most active) even prefers this to wet food. Good price, great results!

    Nary a bit left over.

    By CatsPajamas on Aug 5, 2019

    9 kittens loved this dry kitten food, and so did many of the adult cats. Time to order more. I highly recommend this product if you have kittens (of any age).
