Kittens (and cats) are strict carnivores and have no dietary need for carbohydrates such as grains (e.g rice or wheat). It is for this reason that our kitten wet food is protein-focused and grain-free, with only 0.2% carbohydrate content.
Good hydration is vital to a healthy kitten, which is why all our wet foods are formulated with ‘free liquid’ water for optimum hydration, instead of the artificial gelling agents found in other brands. When it comes to wet food, our philosophy at Thrive is: “wetter is better!”
We recommend feeding 2 – 3 tins a day depending on your kitten’s activity level and their own personal requirements. Kittens start to eat solid foods from about three weeks and are fully weaned at about eight weeks. At first they need small meals often (about four or five a day) but by about six months, two meals a day are usually fine. This can continue throughout their adult life, depending on your cat’s preference.
