Feeding Instructions

For Kittens:

  • Pre - weaning, 3 - 6 Weeks, up to 1 lb … Free access to mother's food
  • Just Weaned, 6 - 12 Weeks, 1 - 2.5 lbs … 1/4 - 1/3 cup per day
  • Growing, 12 - 26 Weeks, 2.5 - 5 lbs … 1/3 - 1/2 cup per day
  • Close to Adult Weight, 26 - 52 Weeks, 5 lbs to Adult weight … 1/2 - 1 cup per day

For Adult Cats

  • Up to 7 lbs … Up to 1/2 cup per day*
  • 7 - 10 lbs … 1/2 - 2/3 cup per day*
  • 10 - 13 lbs … 2/3 - 1 cup per day*
  • Over 13 lbs … 1 cup plus 1/4 cup per day* for every 5 more lbs

This product is meant to be fed to growing kittens and pregnant or nursing Adult cats. Kittens, like Adult cats, will eat multiple meals per day, so provide daily amount of food divided into smaller meals. Moisten food until just soft for pre - weaning period. Pick up left over food and discard in order to maintain freshness. As kittens get more used to dry food, reduce the amount of water added to the food.

Adjust feeding amounts to maintain steady, slow growth and ideal body condition. Amounts will depend on age, activity, environment and temperament. Helping to decrease cat obesity means keeping your kitten at ideal body condition throughout its growth and early Adulthood.

Pregnant or Nursing Cat: Adjust feeding amounts in order to maintain ideal body condition. Feed multiple meals per day with daily amounts divided into smaller meals. Pregnant cats can require up to 2 - 3 times their normal Adult maintenance amounts of food. Nursing cats can require up to 4 times their normal Adult maintenance amounts of food, with larger increases happening about 4 weeks after kittens are born and start rapid growth.

Get your kitten off to a good start with a first and then regular veterinary visits. Keep fresh water available at all times.

Transition Instructions

When switching your pet's diet, we recommend transitioning from the current diet to any new Natural Balance Formula over a 5-7 day period. Replace 25% of the current diet with new Natural Balance Formula each day until they are fully transitioned. If you do not have any of your current formula to mix, reduce the amount of formula fed for the first few days, feeding smaller more frequent meals and increase over time. If your pet is more sensitive to change, please allow 10-14 days to fully transition onto the new formula.

    Love this food!

    By on

    My 8-month-old kitten has always been a voracious eater but when I feed her this food I have to push her head out of the bowl to add the second scoop! I love this food and this brand because they are one of the only brands I've been able to find that not only uses high-quality ingredients but is also not entirely grain-free! Dogs and cats NEED grain in their diet for heart health and Natural Balance has it!

    Kitty can't get enough

    She loves this food. I had to put her food up because my dog was trying to eat it too. He's a picky eater too. I love natural balance products.

    Shiny coat, healthy kittens

    By on

    I have 2 cats who are about 7 and 9 months old now. They've been on this food for 6 months and they are happy, active, smart, and beautiful. I like to think it's just because they are perfect, but they love this food and I'm sure it helps.

    Kitten won't eat it

    By on

    My kitten had previously been on Blue Buffalo and won't eat this. He will eat the Purina kitten food that came with him from the shelter and stick his head in the dog food bowl before he will eat this.

    Kitten Food

    By on

    My kitten didn't seem to care for this. It took a lot of effort to get him to eat it. My adult cats wouldn't go near it. I won't buy it again.

    Its okay i guess

    By on

    The company stopped making the brand i originally got for my ferret and recommended i switch to this one. I am not overly keen on it and its just doesn't do what the previous kind i had did.

    We adopted a 9 wk old kitten. She came from the breeder eating science diet (blah) So wanted to start switching immediately. Started her on the 1/4 of this to 3/4 of the crap. We are on full Natural Balance now and she loves it. Going to also try the soft Nat'l Bal. 3-4 times a week.
