Feeding Instructions

FIRST TIME FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS

Switching to a plant-based product must be donegradually. There are two ways to switch:

Option 1: gradually shifting from the old product to the new- start by mixing the old food (to which your pet is already accustomed) with the new plant-based kibble at 1:4 ratio:

  • 1 part plant-based kibble : 4 parts old product

Then during the following two-weeks gradually increase the proportion of plant-based product. At the end of the second week you should not be adding the old product.

Option 2: adding some extras -start by mixing 1 teaspoon of flaked nutritional yeast, margarine, or vegetable oil to each cup of the plant-based product.

Then during the following two-weeks gradually reduce nutritional yeast, margarine, or vegetable oil to zero. Pets adapt to the new plant-based product with no added flavor after 1-2 weeks.

MOIST KIBBLE
To increase your cat's hydration, to improve digestion and urinary function it is best to add water to dry kibble; after adding water the kibble expands in size, becomes mushy and is better absorbed
• Start by using a lower amount of dry food (see 'moist food' column below)
• Add water 1:1 ratio (1 part kibble to 1 part water)
Let stand for 30-60 min
• Addseveraldry kibbles to help scrape plaque off the teeth

Note: Check and brush your cat’s teeth regularly

    NUTRITIONAL YEAST FOR PICKY CATS
    For picky pets add some nutritional yeast (sold separately). Sprinkling nutritional yeast makes the food taste even more cheesy.
    • for 1 cup of dry kibble, sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of nutritional yeast
    ADULT CATS
    Feed dry kibble as is, or mix with water, almond milk or broth to make affordable moist food (see moist kibble section).

    KITTENS
    Kittens can be started on Gourmet Fondue Delicious Cheese Flavor as early as they begin to nibble at solid foods (usually 3 to 4 weeks of age). Until 6 months of age, kittens should be fed all of the moistened cat food they will consume at intervals throughout the day. If fed dry, the food may be kept before kittens at all times.
