Purina Kitten Chow Nurturing Formula

Rated #202 in Cat Food


Pros: he eats it, small kibble pieces

Cons: bad ingredients, smelly waste

It's what my Aunt fed him, it's the only thing he'll eat besides fancy feast wet food. I'm going to try to get him to change over to Blue.


Pros: The bag is pretty, if that's what you're looking for

Cons: Everything else

This is the kitten chow my kitten's foster mom delivered him to me with. I'll let the ingredients speak for themselves:


Chicken by-product meal, corn gluten meal, brewer's rice, soy flour, animal fat preserved with mixed-tocopherols (form of vitamin E), wheat flour, fish meal, animal liver flavor, dried yeast, turkey by-product meal, calcium carbonate, phosphoric acid, salt, choline chloride, taurine, potassium chloride, zinc sulfate, ferrous sulfate, vitamin E supplement, niacin, manganese sulfate, vitamin A supplement, calcium panthothenate, thiamine mononitrate, red 40, copper sulfate, riboflavin supplement, vitamin B-12 supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, folic acid, vitamin D-3 supplement, calcium iodate, biotin, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of vitamin K activity), sodium selenite.


If you visit the company's website and look over the page for this product, they explain several of the ingredients, including corn gluten meal (a by-product from the production of vegetable oil) and brewer's rice ("a great source of carbs" ... only cats don't need carbs). 


If you can't afford grain-free, at least aim for something that isn't grain-dominant. I decided to transition to wet food and raw.


That said, 1 star for apparently being free of road kill and euthanized pets.
