Looking for the best dry kitten foods? These are today’s best-selling and top-rated dry kitten foods that Chewy pet parents, like you, love. We update this list every day, so you can be sure you’re getting the timeliest product recommendations available.
Your kitten should eat dry kitten food until she has reached the age of maturity and finished growing. Most experts recommend switching from kitten to adult cat food at around one year of age, or at 18 to 24 months if you have a larger breed like a Maine Coon. Consult with your vet about the right time to transition your kitten to adult food, and be sure to make the transition gradually to allow your kitten time to adjust.
Kittens tend to prefer wet food over dry food, but every kitten is different and yours may like kibble just as well or more. Cats generally find wet food to be more palatable than kibble, due to what is often a higher meat content and an appetizing aroma.
Kittens can eat dry food at between 6 to 8 weeks of age, although you may want to start by soaking your kitten's dry kibble to make it easier to eat and digest. Be sure to feed your kitten only cat foods formulated for kittens, as kittens need specific essential nutrients to grow and thrive.
