Cats and Kittens

  • How much should I feed my cat? 

    As a rough rule of “paw” we would suggest feeding your adult cat 2% to 3% of its body weight per day.  

    It is important to weigh your cat regularly and make any necessary adjustments should your cat begin to lose or gain weight. 

    Many pet shops and most veterinary surgeries provide easy access to electronic scales. Many weight by breed wall charts can be found in veterinary surgeries. These charts provide useful indicators as to whether your cat is either in peak condition or has been over-indulged. 

     As a guide, use our Food Calculator which you can find on our product pages.

  • What should I feed my kitten?  

    Natural Instinct yummy raw food of course! If your kitten has been weaned onto Natural Instinct Weaning Paste you should continue to feed this to your kitten until they are 12 to 14 weeks old.  


  • How much should I feed my kitten?  

    We advise feeding your kitten 5% to 6% of their current body weight per day until they are fully grown.  

    Once your kitten is fully grown, we recommend feeding 2% to 3% of their ideal body weight per day 

    Weigh your kitten regularly to ensure you are increasing the food amount in line with their growth.  

    As a guide, use our Food Calculator which you can find on our product pages.

  • How often should I feed my kitten?  

    We recommend initially feeding your kitten 3 to 4 times a day, dropping down to 2 meals a day when your kitten is about six months of age, or as recommended by your breeder or vet. 

  • When can my kitten transition on to adult food?  

    At 12 to 14 weeks old your kitten can be transitioned on to Natural Instinct complete recipes in our cat food ranges.

    When transitioning your kitten onto complete adult recipes, use chicken or turkey recipes as these will be gentle on your kitten’s tummy.  

    It is important to feed your kitten primarily from our complete ranges for cats as these contain the recommended levels of taurine which is an essential part of your kitten’s diet.
