Growing kittens need more nutrients and vitamins than adult cats. Your new kitten may seem small now but it will only take six months for them to reach 75% of their adult body mass. Throughout this rapid growth stage, they can grow by about 100g per week.

This means there’s a lot of developing for them to do in a short period which is why it’s so important they’re getting the right nutrition at the right stage.

To help you know what’s best for your kitten’s health, follow our feeding timeline below.
