Now more than ever, it's time to nurture. Your kitten is growing and going through extraordinary physical changes that require extra protein and nutrients like those found in Purina Kitten Chow. Nurturing your kitten's emotional development is another essential part of his or her complete health. Like a baby, your kitten learns about social interaction, develops special bonds, and begins to differentiate between acceptable and unacceptable behaviors at a very young age. Recognizing the importance of both physical and emotional well-being is the first step to the Purina Cat Chow Way of Life.
As part of the complete line of products, Purina Kitten Chow Nurture Formula has been formulated by veterinarians and nutritionists with all 25 essential vitamins and minerals your kitten needs in the first year. Purina also formulated this Kitten Chow with multiple shapes and a terrific taste so your kitten stays interested, satisfied, and happy. This 100% nutritionally complete and balanced food provides calcium and phosphorus for strong bones and teeth and taurine for a healthy heart and bright eyes. In addition, this kitten food contains nutrients like those found in mother's milk and encourages a healthy appetite!

Kitten Feeding Instructions: Kittens generally nibble solid foods at three to four weeks of age. Keep moistened Purina Kitten Chow available to these kittens at all times. After weaning, at six to eight weeks of age, kittens will normally eat dry or moistened food at will. If water is added, use no more than one part warm (not hot) liquid to three parts Purina Kitten Chow, changing frequently to ensure freshness.
Feeding for Reproduction: Purina Kitten Chow provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female's good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.
Water: Adequate water intake is necessary to maintain your kitten's health and body functions. Provide fresh water in a clean bowl daily.
