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.

    Two boys love it!

    By Kaetrutt on Jan 10, 2021

    My boys (six months old) are in love with it. One of them is a picky eater and the other has an unbelievably sensitive stomach, so it was great to find a dry *kitten* formula that pleases them both. Having a healthy and affordable option is great!

    It came with the cat

    By Iamacatlady on Nov 24, 2020

    This is what they sent home with my kitten when adopted, I have tried a few other foods but this one seems to work best for his tummy at all times and he eats it in-between small servings of wet food. He's been eating this for the first 8 months of his life so far and the vet says he's a very healthy cat.

    My top pick for kittens

    By NicQ on Sep 12, 2020

    My first shelter kitty came to me on this. I was planning on switching her eventually, but her coat is so beautiful and soft and she loved eating it so much that I kept her on it. Our second shelter kitty came to us on Royal Canin Kitten and her bathroom trips smelled soo horrendous and her eyes were constantly watery. I switched her over to this and now she is going normally with only typical litter box smells. Her coat seems softer now too and her drippy eyes have cleared up since switching too. I really like this food.

    Not for my kitten

    By Joyce on Sep 18, 2020

    Not entirely sure but I think this is making my kitten sick. She was fine while she transitioned to it but since it's become exclusively this brand she's been vomiting

    bites too big for small mouth

    By imakatlvr on Jun 2, 2020

    We foster a lot of kitten and really like Authority canned food, but the dry food bites are way too big for small kittens to eat. Our fosters are usually 4-7 weeks old and they cannot eat these big of dry food bites.

    Authority Kitten Food

    By LukeNLeiasMom on Feb 20, 2020

    We adopted 2 sibling kittens in December. We brought Luke home first because he was the bigger of the two. He was a good eater and had no GI problems. Leia had issues gaining weight and her foster mom couldn’t figure out why. We finally brought her home a week later. She had horrible gas and diarrhea from the get go until I figured out that she has a sensitive stomach. Authority was the 3rd brand we tried and it is amazing. The kittens love it. Although the gas problem hasn’t completely gone away, but as with humans I suspect that too is normal in cats, Leia doesn’t have the horrendous diarrhea anymore. Plus their coats are incredibly soft and shiny. I highly recommend it!

    Want to keep healthy weight

    By catlover on Feb 9, 2020

    Indoor 6 month old male -- wanted him not to get chubby and looked at caloric content. Chewy pointed this out to me once (though I should've thought of it myself!). There's a very wide range of calories per cup among adult foods, even ones that say 'healthy weight' or some such! There may be others for kittens, but this was received well, so I'll get it again!

    Less mess!

    By Justshe on Jan 15, 2020

    I recently rescued a kitten and she was filling up her litter box every day. On top of that, her feces smelled terrible. I decided to try changing her food and it was the best decision ever! Now I only rarely smell her box and clean up is only 1 to 2 scoops. My new kitten and my dog love Chewy.com
