Our Cats Diet
We practice a rotational diet using high quality grain free food of different brands mixing dry food with wet food for higher water consumption. Adding canned food to dry food is not only a good way to increase the moisture content but also to enhance the flavor of our cats meal. General Guidelines of Cat Nutrition: http://www.knowyourcat.info/info/proteins.htm
Another important component that compliments our cats dietary needs is adding whole Goat Milk and plain 2% Greek Yogurt as additional source of nutritions and probiotics for better digestion. Goat Milk and Yogurt is a great addition source of protein for growing babies while weaning from the mother as well.
KMR® 2nd Step Kitten Weaning Milk has been formulated to meet the nutritional needs of young kittens being weaned from their mother as well as adult cats while pregnant, and nursing mother. It is recommended that KMR 2nd Step Kitten Weaning Food be fed until kittens are seven or eight weeks old when they can be fed commercial kitten or cat food as desired by their new owners.
