Can kittens eat adult cat food?

We always suggest sticking to our feeding guidelines, which are designed to perfectly match your cat’s weight and age milestones. However, we understand that every kitten is unique, and sometimes you might face special circumstances.

🚫 When not to feed adult cat food to a kitten

If your kitten is from a large breed like a Maine Coon, Ragdoll, Persian, Bengal, or Siberian, it’s best to keep them on kitten food a little longer. These adorable giants have special growth needs that kitten food is specifically designed to support!

✅ When to consider feeding adult cat food to a kitten

On the other hand, if your furry friend is a smaller breed (think Devon Rex, Siamese, or a tiny tabby) and older than 8 months, you might start thinking about transitioning to adult cat food. This could be a good move, especially if your little one shows signs of slower growth or if there are specific dietary needs that adult food addresses better.

☝️ Switching foods is a big step, so remember to do it gradually. This helps your kitten's tummy adjust and ensures they’re getting the right balance of nutrients.

If you're unsure about when to transition your kitten to adult cat food, or if your kitten has special dietary requirements, having a chat with your vet is a great idea. They can offer personalized advice to make sure your kitten thrives.

Keep a close eye on how your kitten is doing with the new diet and tweak things as needed to keep them happy and healthy. 😸
