Terra Faelis kitten menus finally allow the little tigers to enjoy our wonderful menus with 100% food grade raw materials. All kitten menus are grain-free with a very high meat content (approx. 90%) – just as the natural diet of young cats. Lots of fresh muscle meat high in protein and healthy linseed or salmon oil supply the energy little kittens need to explore the world. Healthy fruits and vegetables combined with marigold, chamomile, catnip and dandelion as well as the two super foods coconut and pumpkin seed powder boost the metabolism and healthy digestion. Terra Faelis offers little furry ones a completely natural and species-appropriate start to life – far away from K3 material, grains, synthetic products and sugar. Complete feed for growing cats.
Fat and protein for kittens
The fat consumed through food essentially has three important functions for the adolescent cat:
- it provides essential fatty acids
- it’s a carrier for fat-soluble vitamins
- it’s a concentrated source of energy
Kittens tolerate very high fat contents in their food (up to 64% TTL) and also require it as a source of energy for growth. The fat requirement is therefore significantly higher than that of a full grown, adult cat.
Since muscle meat, liver and lung are rather lean pieces of meat, the fat content in kitten food must be increased to meet the increased need for energy and essential fatty acids of kittens. This is achieved through a higher amount of flaxseed and salmon oil, as well as by adding veal or poultry fat.
The fat tolerance is 90%. Just as mature cats, kittens need the essential fatty acids arachidonic- and linoleic acid. These are supplied by the fat in their food.
In addition to tasting well, which results in improved acceptance, the fat supplies the kittens with important energy needed for growth. The natural growth curve of kittens particularly spikes during the first eight months of life, consuming a lot of energy and power. Young cats need to take this in through food.
Healthy protein: The protein requirement of young cats must cover their need for essential amino acids. Even the supply of nitrogen and azotic compounds are controlled by the protein content of food.
Little kittens need a particularly high amount of protein after being weaned from their mother. After this, the requirement gradually declines to the normal requirement of an adult cat at 10 months of age.
To meet all of a kitten’s needs and provide the important azotic compounds in food, it’s important for the dish to contain a minimum of 19% animal protein.
