KITTEN

less than 1 year

Kitten

Kittens experience a world of changes during their phases of growth and development – growing up is a lot of work! Kittens need a great deal of energy and protein to create new cells, along with balanced mineral levels to ensure healthy growth. The right amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA are proven to benefit healthy brain and eyesight development, while a wealth of antioxidants supports developing immune systems. Kittens need easily digestible food, gentle on tummies and delicious enough to give a great first solid food experience.

YOUNG ADULT

1-6 years

Young Adult

Young Adult cats’ needs can be summed up quite simply: Maintenance! Keeping cats healthy during their adult years may take some care and attention, but it certainly pays off! Getting the right balance of minerals, energy and easily digestible fibres helps keep cats trim and helps maintain healthy organ function all throughout adulthood and into maturity. Maintaining the best of health now is key to better health later!

ADULT
Neutered cats

1-6 years

Young Adult Neutered Cats

Neutered cats don’t need as many calories to maintain their ideal weight, so they run the risk of gaining weight more easily. Over time, excess weight makes neutered cats prone to other related health conditions, making it imperative to keep cats fit and slim after neutering. Easy to digest food with the right fibre blend keeps cats’ digestive systems running smoothly, and high antioxidant levels help bolster natural defences for a long, healthy life.

MATURE ADULT

7+ years

Mature Adult

Mature Adult cats have very specific nutritional needs in their later years. Keeping a healthy body – and a healthy spirit! - requires healthy organs and bones, a robust immune system, strong teeth and much more. Keeping older cats feeling young and fit means helping them avoid the kinds of health conditions often associated with ageing.
