A healthy weight starts with healthy habits
If your kitten eats more calories than they need each day, they'll start to put on weight. Obesity in kittens can lead to a range of health problems in later life. To prevent such health risks for your young pet, it's vital that you introduce healthy habits into their daily life from the start. It's better for your kitten to eat little and often, rather than eating two big meals, so try giving your kitten multiple small meals a day.
To avoid overfeeding, always measure out your kitten's daily food portion and divide it up accordingly. Kittens love to exercise and will thrive on short bursts of intense activity and play. Ensuring that these short bursts of playful activity happen regularly will help your pet to stay ﬁt and healthy and, along with healthy portioning, prevent them from becoming overweight.
By setting good habits for your pet around exercise and food portions as they grow up, you'll help your kitten to maintain a healthy weight into adulthood.
