Weaning Kittens

alimentation-Chaton-quelle-nourriture-pour-Chaton.jpg

As your little feline friend approaches their first birthday, they'll be ready to move on to eating a balanced adult food that’s suitable for their growing needs. Your kitten is very sensitive to changes in taste and temperature, as well as any change in diet, so make sure you ease them into their new food gently.

When to switch

Your kitten will be ready to start trying adult food at around 12 months.

How to switch

Change your kitten’s food gradually over the course of a week. Every few days, add a little more of the new food, and take out a little of the old, until the change is complete.

Food temperature

Just like their big cat cousins, your kitten is a born predator. Their natural instinct is to eat only things that have just been killed. That’s why they prefer their food at room temperature and not straight from the fridge.

Balanced adult food

Now that your cat is all grown up, they need an adult cat diet which is both complex and well-balanced. It’s important to feed them specially prepared cat food packed full of all the right proteins and nutrients, like Whiskas® Pouches Adult.
