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.

    Chubby Kitten Loves It

    By on

    Someone had given us a bag of Authority when the kittens arrived and they loved it. At 7 months though, the larger and greedier one has started getting chubby so I ordered this indoor variety. They seem to like this one better. I wish it came in a larger size bag though.

    Kittens love it

    My two 6 month old kittens love this food. They don’t like their old food. I hate to waste the stuff they don’t care for so I have to use the Authority for only one meal.
