FAQs About Cat Food

There’s no one size fits all answer to this question. The amount of food your cat needs will depend on your cat’s size, age, exercise habits and metabolism. Additionally, the same amount of food could equal a different number of calories depending on the cat food brand you choose.

A good place to start is to check the label of your cat food. Most containers include serving size recommendations based on your cat’s weight. Use this as a ballpark estimate and revise it based on your cat. For instance, if your cat is a little heavier, you may want to use the lower end of the serving recommendation. If your cat is at a healthy weight, use the middle of the recommendation. Reassess your cat on a regular basis to determine if you need to increase or decrease meal serving sizes.

Consult your veterinarian, who should be able to give you a more precise calorie recommendation for your pet. Your vet may also be able to recommend the best cat food for your pet or give you a list of healthy cat foods. Finally, keep in mind that calories come from cat food and treats. Treats should make up no more than 10 percent of your cat’s daily calories.

Kittens have significantly different nutritional needs than adult cats and therefore should not eat adult food. Pet parents who want to find the best cat food for their kittens should purchase food specifically formulated for kittens in their first year of life.

Kitten food contains a higher percentage of protein and fat than adult cat food to help kittens develop lean muscles. Kitten food also has more calories because kittens need the energy to grow, while food for adults is designed to help adult cats maintain a healthy weight. Finally, kitten food often contains a higher number of vitamins and minerals. Kittens need calcium and phosphorus to ensure they develop strong bones and healthy teeth. Petco offers a great selection of soft cat food and dry cat food for kittens.
