All of our kittens go home with TCFeline or Better In the Raw with chicken liver added.
All you need is ground meat.
Below you see a recipe being made from scratch,
instead of the more convenient prepackaged supplement mentioned above.
Either is a fine choice.
Both methods allow you to add your own meat of choice.
Both are more wholesome than commercially prepared, processed, heated, packaged foods.
I have used nothing but these for the past 13 years with superb results.
There are numerous websites with alternative recipes for a balanced feline food.

Your responsibility to your pet is only a click away.
The more we know, the better we do.
Plan on being available to feed your new kitten 3 times daily until he is 6 months of age. You likely will begin with an amount anywhere from 1/3 cup of raw meat mixture to 1/2 cup for a serving. If he finishes it and indicates he will eat more, feed him. A raw fed cat rarely becomes fat, and a kitten is growing and needs energy and nutrition. A male kitten who's weight at 8 months is at 13 pounds will easily consume 14-16 ounces of meat per day. Many of the males I have raised for breeding will consume 12-16 ounces of meat by the time they are 10 months of age and continue for a couple months. This is a growth spurt. Please feed. If you plan to feed both raw and kibble, I have found that practice to be less successful. Kibble is like McDonalds for the cat. Purchase a high quality protein dense food. Quality is not inexpensive, however the amount needed to satiate the appetite is considerably less in quantity. Your rewards will be found in fewer veterinary needs.
