How to Feed Your Kitten As kittens grow up they need to learn when, where and how to eat. Depending on age, kittens need to be fed at the same time and in the same place 2-4 times per day. Food should be removed after 20 minutes, if not eaten. In the beginning, kitten’s food can be moistened with a little warm water.

Transition Instructions

current diet as it takes a few days for the body to adapt to new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness® CORE® each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness CORE by day 7.

Nutrition is the foundation of wellbeing, but be sure to give your cat plenty of fresh water, love and exercise and visit your veterinarian regularly!

  • Kittens love it

    By on

    Well I switched my kittens to this food from another grain free brand made in Canada because the vet never heard of it and he said to find a new one. I decided my kittens were on wellness kitten soft food so wellness core would be my brand to try. I went in with trying to mix the food with the old and they didn't like that so I tried just the new stuff by itself and they loved it. They won't touch the old stuff anymore after just a day of tasting this stuff. My only problem was the bottom of the bag I was pouring into the dish and a bunch of tiny crumbs came out almost a dish full of them. That is why I didn't rate a 5 star. The dish I use for two kittens 9 months is kinda big since they share Well I switched my kittens to this food from another grain free brand made in Canada because the vet never heard of it and he said to find a new one.

I bought three bags so if the second one is the same I will complain to the company not chewy since chewy just sells it. Anyways love the food and the cats do too. … more

  • THE best premium food

    By on

    I'm a new cat owner and wanted the best for my rescued kitten. I did my due diligence; did my research and looked into the ingredients of every affordable premium cat food I could find. And this is the best bang for your buck! And my cat loves it too! Chewy has the best price for this. This is the product that got me into regularly buying from Chewy.

  • rejected by both our kittens

    By on

    This has a very strong odor. We tried mixing it with other food to introduce to our cats but they weren't having it. Not going to get another bag. They take forever to eat and beg for more food until their bowl is finally empty. They clearly don't like it.

  • The babies love it

    By on

    I have all 3 kittens on both wet and dry formulas and so far so good. They're always right there the moment they hear the can cracked open and they're coats look shiny and just full of energy.

  • Great hard food for older kittens

    By on

    This product is better now that our kitten is older. The bits of hard food use to be too big for his mouth when we first bought it, he was around 3 months old and I was always worried he'd choke on it. He's 7 months now and has no problem downing these like it's a birth right.

  • My kitten loves it

    By on

    My kitten loves this food. I love that it's natural, grain-free, and the first five ingredients are quality meat products. His stools are firm and don't smell bad at all, which is a good sign telling me his body is doing well on this food. His coat is shiny. I like the fact that the food pieces are larger so that he can't eat it too fast. I feel good feeding him this food because I believe this is a high-quality food. He's getting a great head start on life thanks to Wellness CORE.

  • Unfortunately, my little kitten does not like it.

    By on

    I saw lot of people recommend this product. And the first couple day, my kitten like it also. But after that, he did not eat or eat only a little bit everyday. So I think I need to start looking for another dry food to my picky kitten.

  • Core

    By on

    I usually enjoy feeding Core to my kitties. The kitten formula however is very very stinky. My kitten liked it at first but quickly refused to eat it. I'm not quite sure why. I was saddened as I like feeding grain free and Wellness has been a good choice in the past.
