New Cat Food

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been feeding Pepper Purina Kitten Chow. She's 6 months old and was spayed a month ago. I've heard that once they are spayed / neutered, you should change their food to adult food. Is that true? I'm almost at the end of this bag, so I was wondering what to buy next? I don't want her to get fat, so what's a good brand to buy that will keep her healthy?

I feed kitten food till a yr with one .... yr and half with another and almost 4 yrs with another...

12 months is a GUIDELINE.. if you have a couch potato kitten then adult food after 6-8 months is warrented but for a ave kitten a yr is better for the switch ..

I'm going to chime in here with my 2 cents. I watch how the kitties grow...my foster kittens are 10 months & off kitten 2 months ago, they were getting FAT! I feed a mix of foods, including Diamind Naturals Active Cat.

Purina really isn't that great of a food, there are a lot of highger quality foods out there, if you can find any locally available.

I'd get a bag of adult food and start mixing with the remaining kitten food. Try Nutro Max, Royal Canin, or Natural Balance. There are better foods out there then Purina.

Thanks for the advice! I started feeding her Purina just because that's what she was getting fed at the shelter. I didn't know that it wasn't very good. I"ll look for one of the brands you guys suggested next time I go to the store. Thank you!

Here are some threads to read on high quality or premium foods:

This one is what foods you feed & why:


There are TONS of good foods out there:
Wal Mart's brand Maxximum
Natural Life
Chicken Soup
Diamond Naturals
Innova/California Natural
Nature's Variety
Eagle pack
Nutro/Nutro Max
Newman's Own
Natural Balance

And I'm hardly touching the tip of the list! You'll have to determine what you can afford & what's locally available....if you've got any further questions, don't hesitate to ask!
