Kittens need good nutrition
A kitten is a cute and cuddly pet for your home. In the first six months he or she will grow quickly and it is important he or she has the correct pet food to help their bones grow strong and healthy.
The kittens body has an amazing immune system and all of the body including the coat will require vitamins from the pet food provided by us humans.
A kitten should be fed on pet food prepared by food manufacturers, especially for kittens, at least four times a day.
Pet foods are available in the form of tinned wet food or a dried food and can be bought at an online pet store for convenience.
This can be advantageous if you are at work all day.
A good idea is to have your kitten eat wet food regularly for a three meals and place some dried food in a bowl for him or her to graze on.
Pet food for kittens will have essential minerals such as iron, zinc, calcium and phosphorous to help the kitten to become a strong fully grown cat.
Remember to keep a bowl of clean drinking water available for your kitten especially if you have left a bowl of dried food for your kitten.
Dried food can lead to your kitten becoming dehydrated.
