confusing information about "Kitten" food
Hi Everyone! So I'm pretty confused with all this kitten/adult food thing. I went to Petco the other day, and they told me do NOT feed my 12 week old kitten Lily adult food. The thing is, she thinks shes too old for kitten food now, and will not eat it. So, I started her on adult food. She likes it. I get it that babies need extra protein and fats, but is adult really all that bad for her growth and development? I feed her pretty good stuff.. I have Blue, Natural Balance, Royal Canin, Soulistic, Good Karma, and Fancy Feast. She and her other sister Callie (7 months) both like these. Are there any other kitten brands out there that I haven't tried yet? They are both already so picky. I also feed them Iams hard kitten food, and they both nibble on that, but much prefer their soft foods. Any suggestions? Or is it okay with what I'm feeding them?
Thanks for your input!
