Nutro Natural Choice

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Does anyone else have a kitten on this food? Marlee is close to 5 months (we think) and weighs 4.5-5 lbs. I sort-of free feed her....meaning I will make sure her bowl is never empy, but I do measure using a 1/4 cup scoop in her food bag. My question is, she hasn't seemed to always eat as much as the bag recommends. If she is really 5 months then she is eating at the low end of her recommendation (20-29 weeks should be given 1/2-3/4 cup per day by the bags standards). She eats about 1/2 cup a day, maybe a little more. I do think she ate more when she was younger, b/c I remember filling up her bowl more than twice a day. Anyways, is this okay as long as she looks/feels/acts healthy? She has definately grown and gained weight since I've had her, and I can't feel any ribs at all or anything of that sort.

A lot of times cat food manufacturers recommend a little bit more than is actually needed because they want to sell more food. Her weight is right for her age and if she seems healthy and happy then I wouldn't worry. I'm glad you picked a brand of food with no by products.

I am a demonstrator for Nutro and I do tell folks to use the guidelines as a starting mark... My Zoey eats double the recommend and Gigi eats only a third... Kandie eats right on with canned ... Marlee is right within the wt for her age so she is getting enough

Thank you both for the replies! My BF thinks I'm too over-protective of her, but she is my baby and especially considering the shape she was in when I got her, I worry a little too much!

By the way, I only settled on Nutro after spending a bit of time on this site, searching and asking questions. Marlee seems to like it, and the price is not too crazy!

I use Nutro as well...and I found that my cats were eating a lot less then they would with other brands (though both bags recommended around the same). I found the higher the quality of food...the less they needed to satisfy them. Might be there same for your little one.

Mine are on Nutro Natural Choice kitten as well and they eat less on that than other dry foods. I think the Nutro is more filling to them.
