Read Our Full Brand Review

If you’re interested in a human-grade food for your kitten, you might be interested in wet food from The Honest Kitchen. While most kitten food is considered feed-grade and produced in facilities that only handle pet food, The Honest Kitchen prepares, cooks, and transports all of their products according to human food manufacturing standards.

Formulated for both adult cats and kittens, The Honest Kitchen’s food is rich in protein from animal sources, featuring chicken as its primary ingredient. In addition to chicken meat, the food contains salmon oil, which is a good source of animal-based omega-3 fatty acids, beneficial for your kitten’s brain and eye development.

The food comes in resealable and recyclable 5.5 ounce cardboard cartons. It is on the more expensive side at over $0.50 per ounce, but that price may be worth it for a top-quality, human-grade food for your kitten.

Each 5.5-ounce carton contains 187 calories, which converts to about 34 calories per ounce.
