There are a variety of foods you can feed your cat. Life stage diets are formulated to provide just the right nutrition for your cat depending on her age and development. Kitten food has extra protein to support your cat’s growing bones and developing brain and other organs. Once your cat reaches about one year of age, kitten food contains too much fat and can contribute to obesity. Thus you should switch her over to an adult formula food. You can feed your cat this food for many years unless she develops a condition requiring a change. There are foods formulated for weight control, urinary support and even pregnancy. Other foods are available by prescription and are formulated to help with particular diseases. Senior food will help with mobility issues and provides nutrition consistent with an aging body.
