2. Make sure that you know what you’re getting – cat food or kitten food
The label on every pet food package comes with a nutritional adequacy statement – it tells you if the product is capable of offering complete and balanced nutrition for your pet on its own. A nutritional adequacy statement can only make sense when read in conjunction with information about the life stage that the product in question is designed for.
Food that’s designed for kittens, for instance, won’t do for normal adult cats, breeding cats or very old cats. You need to make sure you get the right kind.
