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!

Optimal Health to the CORE

Supporting Your Cat's Optimal Health to the CORE

Wellness CORE follows the nutritional philosophy that pets, based on their primal ancestry, thrive on a diet mainly comprised of meat. CORE formulas are packed with quality animal protein without fillers or grains, plus botanicals and nutritional supplements. These unique, grain-free recipes support and nurture your pet, contributing to his inner wellbeing all the way through to his core.

Why is CORE Different?

Unlike many grain-free diets, Wellness CORE considers your pet's whole health by ensuring the overall nutritional equation remains appropriate for everyday feeding. Higher protein can also mean higher fat, minerals and calories. By thoughtfully selecting specialized ingredients and managing nutritional ratios, CORE delivers protein-focused nutrition thoughtfully - with balance, not excess.

  • Wanted my kitty to like this

    By on

    I liked the ingredient list on this food but my kitten was offended by this food. My adult kitty, who is not a picky eater, wouldn't touch it either. I took it outside to feed it to a neighborhood stray that I put food out for sometimes.. he wouldn't even touch it! The raccoons ate it. Disappointing.

  • Makes Cats' Fur SO soft

    By on

    I chose this food because of the quality, whole ingredients. After a month of putting my 3 cats on this, they all seem so much stronger and healthier, with shiny, super soft fur. You can tell it is making them healthy from the inside out. Everyone says they are the softest cats they have ever met, which didn't happen until they started this food. I swear by Wellness now.

  • Shaped like little balls

    By on

    Ingredients were totally acceptable, but the shape of the Kitty food turned our Kitties away, & even some stray cats. I ordered several different kinds of Kitties foods for a variety. The little flat dry kitty foods made by Purina & Royal Canin were the ones all the kitties liked.

  • The Cats Love This

    By on

    My moms cats had kittens and I am getting two of them. So I researched the healthiest food for my kittens and found Wellness Core to be one of the top picks so I ordered a bag. My mom decided to switch her momma cats over to this so that my kittens can be started on this from day one of being introduced to hard food. It would make it easier to just use one food instead of trying to seperate them. Now every time my mom opens the bag her momma cats come running! She says they absolutely love this food compared to the other and will be switching them to the adult food once all the kittens are weaned. Some of the kittens are already eating it at 4 weeks.

  • Good product, but not to her tastes

    By on

    I was really hoping my 9 week old kitten would learn to love this food, but she's stayed a constant "meh" and won't eat if its the only thing in her dish. Been trying to transition for weeks. Delivery & potential of product were great, it's just not something she finds tasty.
