It’s important to give your kitten a healthy start in life by choosing a nutritious and protein-rich cat food. We recommend wet food for kittens and this Nulo Freestyle recipe is a good option. In fact, it’s complete and balanced for both kittens and adult cats, so you can save yourself the hassle of transitioning your kitten onto a new food when he reaches 12 months of age.

This Nulo Freestyle formula features fresh turkey and chicken as the primary proteins, supplemented with turkey liver and fresh tuna.

The recipe relies mainly on animal-based fat from the tuna and from menhaden fish oil. Both are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids like DHA which is essential for brain and eye development. Omega-3s also support skin and coat health.

Overall, this recipe is high in protein and healthy fats with fairly low carbohydrate content. It contains plenty of moisture to support your kitten’s hydration and doesn’t contain difficult-to-digest beans and legumes.

This recipe is free from carrageenan, a potentially carcinogenic thickener, but it does contain guar gum and agar agar. These ingredients aren’t universally considered harmful, but they have been known to contribute to soft stools in some cats.
