Post-weaning to 5-months-old: feed three times as much food as an adult cat of the same weight.
Between 5-months and 1-year: feed your kittens 1.5 � 2 times as much food as an adult cat and start feeding kittens as adults after 1 year. Moisten food, if desired.

Pregnant females
Monitor and maintain an adequate source of food so that your pregnant or lactating cat can freely eat as she needs. Always maintain a clean water supply that your pregnant or lactating cat can easily access.

When switching your cat�s diet, we recommend that it should be done gradually over 5-7 days, increasing the amount each day with the present diet, as sudden change in diet may result in digestive disturbances.

Feeding amounts may vary by breed, activity level, temperament, & climate. See your veterinarian regularly. Keep fresh water available. To maintain freshness, keep package sealed and store in a cool, dry place.
