How Much Should I Feed My Kitten?

Kittens have different nutritional needs as they grow. Proper diet and nutrition are crucial, especially in the first year of life, to support healthy development. Neutering can also impact a kitten’s dietary requirements, as it tends to slow down their metabolism. Our Kitten Nutrition Calculator is designed to help you create an optimal feeding plan that promotes your kitten’s growth and health.
