Life Stage Diets and Your Cat

Life Stage Diets and Your Cat

Most cat manufacturers offer a number of foods that meet your cat’s nutritional needs throughout the various stages of her life. Kitten food provides the extra protein needed for your cat’s developing brain and growing bones and muscles. However, once your cat reaches about one year of age, kitten food contains too many calories for her and can lead to obesity. Thus you will need to switch to an adult formula food. You can feed your cat this food for many years but once she starts showing signs of aging, you may need to switch to a mature or senior formula diet. These foods support your cat’s aging body and issues such as digestive problems and mobility issues. Specialized foods can help with particular issues such as weight control, hairball control or urinary problems. Some of these foods are only available by prescription.
