Yes, you may feed Nutrish® dry food for cats to kittens since many Nutrish® cat food recipes are formulated to meet the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) nutrient profiles for all life stages of a cat. Check the feeding instructions on the bag to determine whether the product is an “all life stages” recipe or an “adult maintenance” recipe. “All life stages” recipes will include instructions for when and how you should feed kittens and how to adjust feeding levels as your kitten grows. As always, don’t forget to see your vet regularly.
