James Wellbeloved Life Stage Kitten Fish 1.5kg
James Wellbeloved Turkey Kitten is formulated to meet the increased protein and energy requirements of the rapidly growing kitten and to fully support bone development. We add a natural prebiotic - chicory extract - to support digestive health, and we add extra taurine - an essential amino acid which supports many fuctions, including eyes and heart. Omega fatty acids promote a glossy coat and Yucca extract is included to reduce stool odour.
Carefully crafted & nutritionally balanced complete dry kitten food for the health and wellbeing of kittens from 6 weeks to 12 months.
Using all our knowledge and experience, we’ve created James Wellbeloved Fish Kitten food. We take a handful of ingredients from nature, one source of animal protein and combine them with all the vitamins and minerals your kitten needs. And all the great taste it deserves. For added peace of mind, it’s naturally

Cats and kittens like to eat little and often, so the daily serving should ideally be split into several smaller meals throughout the day. Supply plenty of clean, fresh drinking water at all times.
What is the expected adult body weight?
In most cases, all we have to go on is the weight of the mother but remember that, in general, the male kitten will be around 30% heavier than its female littermate at maturity. So, if the mother weighs around 3.5kg, then that’s a good estimate for the female kitten’s final weight, but the Tom could be a whole kilo heavier at around 4.5kg.
What is a normal cat?
We think that he or she has the correct bodyweight, spends a lot of time sleeping and grooming but is allowed to roam outdoors and enjoys a regular play session with their owner.
If feeding both wet and dry food during the day, reduce the daily allowance of dry food by 20g for every pouch fed.
The recommended daily serving is only a guide as requirements vary considerably from cat to cat and can depend on whether other foods are also offered. Ideally, split the daily allowance into numerous meals throughout the day – cats like to be fed little and often. Feed at room temperature. If the whole pouch is not used, refrigerate unused portion. Supply plenty of clean, fresh drinking water at all times.
Every cat is unique
There are a number of factors that play into your cat’s metabolism rate, and thus how much food they need to eat each day to maintain their ideal weight: age, size, the amount they exercise, and whether they are pregnant or nursing. Generally, naturally large cats require more food to power their larger muscles, older cats are more sedentary so need to eat a little less, and kittens are undergoing energy-demanding growth-spurts.
Most pet food manufacturers provide a daily food allowance based on the size of your cat. To help you feed your cat the correct amount for their activity level, James Wellbeloved provides cat feeding guides for three activity levels: lean/very active, normal and indoor/overweight. But remember these are just guidelines and this quantity should be adjusted according to body condition.
Neutering can also influence your cat’s activity levels. In general, post neutering cats show a decline in activity and consequently this is coupled with a need to decrease their calorie intake.
A balanced diet
What you feed your cat also plays a big part in how much you are feeding them. Cat food is available in different formats: wet and dry. The decision on what format to feed is up to you and your cats’ preference, with both options offering benefits. If you decide to feed a mix of the two, be sure to work out proportions correctly so your cat isn’t overfed.
Personality is key
The two great measures of whether you are feeding your cat correctly are: to check their weight and body condition score (we recommend once every two weeks), and to cater their food according to their behaviour. House-cats are likely to live a more sedentary lifestyle than outdoor cats, so their diet will need to reflect their energy requirements. Equally, just as humans change their habits throughout their lifetime, so do our feline companions. As cats age they generally become more sedentary and as a result an older cat doesn’t need to eat as much relative to their weight as a growing kitten or a high-energy middle-aged cat to maintain its ideal weight.
So, pay close attention to their behaviour, body shape and weight, and, if you notice a tubby middle emerging or their energy starts to sap, it might be time to adjust the portions.
