Inspired by the diet of the lynx, a tireless hunter and wild relative of our domesticated feline friends, high-protein BLUE Wilderness Kitten contains a higher concentration of the delicious chicken you know she’ll love. Plus, it’s formulated specifically to help meet the important needs of growing kittens.

And because BLUE Wilderness is made with no grains, it's also an ideal choice if you prefer to feed your kitten a gluten-free diet.

About BLUE Buffalo

Blue Buffalo began with unconditional love and some furry inspiration from a large breed Airedale, Blue. When Blue's family started a pet food company, their vision was clear. They wanted every pet parent to be able to feed their pet with the same care they would feed family. So they created the #1 natural pet specialty food to help furry family members live happy, healthy lives. Of course, they named it after Blue.

    I have been buying through Chewy for over a year and LOVE LOVE LOVE their service AND this kitten food makes for perfectly perfect little MAINE COON KITTENS for me. I make sure a bag of this kitten food goes home with all of my kitten buyers and, in my care instructions, make sure that the buyers keep their new MAINE COONS on Blue Buffalo Grain Free for forever.

  • June loves this stuff!

    By on

    My kit June loves this dry food... so much so, she doesn't bat an eye at the wet stuff anymore (of another brand). It is so comforting to help a kitten find something they love. As for the packaging, I was a bit concerned with my package in the mail arriving with a different lynx cat than the one on this website (anyone else have this problem?) but Chewy.com was SO quick to comment back regarding it. It is great to work with a company you can rely on. Will be ordering plenty more from Chewy.com

  • Only thing they'll eat

    By on

    My cats are picky and I went through a ton of brands and flavors before finding something they will both eat. I leave out this dry food all day and night and they also each get half of a 3oz can of the chicken wet food at night. They are always happy, coats are very soft and silky, and never any problems pooping. Just wish there were bigger bags!

  • My poor old man

    By on

    I bought this originally for a kitten I rescued and my 16 year old loves it. Every diet my vet has put my old man on he still throws it up or won't touch it. This is THE ONLY dry food he does not throw up. I know it's probably calorie rich but he's old and he likes it, so whatever it takes to make him happy.

  • Best Kitten Food

    By on

    My kitten loves this food! It is grain-free which I like very much! Her hair is nice and silky and not coarse and dull like other kitten food that has grain in it's ingredients. My kitten is not getting fat off of it either. I would recommend Blue Wilderness kitten food to all kitten owners!

  • It's the cat's meow!

    By on

    I introduced this food to a new 10 week old rescue. He immediately accepted the Blue Buffalo kitten food and now 3 weeks later he has gained 2 1/2 pounds and is full of energy. I've always had positive experiences with this brand with my adult cats and the kitten food is just as exceptional.

    We have a two month cat (Cyborg). We had him on food from a pet store, but was costing us two times that this food is. We are trying to keep him from getting sititus like our other cat had gotten. We had him on diet food the rest of his life (20 yrs). Costing us $40.00 a bag. We love how good this food is for our kitten and the great cost. Thank you. Ken Kerry

  • Get ready for big kittens

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    My kitten kept trying to eat my dog's blue buffalo food so I figured I'd switch him from the food the shelter suggested since he didn't seem to like that one. He loves this kitten food and he's getting so big. The vet says he's very impressed with how much better his growth is doing since the food change.
