Hi,

Next week I’m adding two male Maine Coon kittens (4 months old) to my family.

I tried to find out which foods are best for them and got confused. It looks like every expert/ breeder has his own opinion for the best food and feeding plan.

Some say that I should feed only dry food, other say that only canned food is suitable and some believe that row food is the only food…

I think that a mixture of dry and wet food will give the best solution.

What do you think?

Hi Avishay, 

Thank you for messaging us with your question, we're very happy to help. 

Picking a food for your kittens can be overwhelming as there's so many options out there. The main thing that we look for is a high quality diet with lots of calories, rich in protein and plenty of omega-3s for healthy brain development. 

We've put this list together of recommended kitten foods which might be helpful for you;

Feeding wet and dry food is perfectly fine. We try to encourage a lot of wet food as cat's need extra moisture in their diet and this helps urinary tract health and kidney function. So for example instead of doing a 50:50 ratio I would lean towards feeding mostly wet food with a little bit of dry food if possible. 

Best of luck with your new additions, they'll provide lots of fun and excitement!
