Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

Hi, I'm 6 and a half months old. Mommy found Wellness wet cat food being sold (but not the kitten formula). Are we too young to be eating the adult wet cat food? (She's also curious about California Natural which seems to be only for cats and not kittens?) I know some people say we're kittens until we're 1 year old, but sometimes I read that it's 6 months. I currently eat Innova Evo wet and dry, and Solid Gold wet and dry, and also Orijins.....And Mommy will be ordering the Wysong's Nurture dry. What do you think?

    Many pet food companies formulate their foods for both cats and kittens. Those who offer both, I have found, use basically the same formula and just package it differently for kittens - or with dry food, they make the bites smaller. Wellness is good about answering questions if you hop onto their website and ask them.

    Yes, cat are adults at the age of 1 but they can already start eating adult food at 6 monthes. Your page says five monthes if you're five monthes I'd say you may start eating adult food,It's just a month before.Like the previous cat said kitten drt food is made smaller & wet food is classic (paste) so kittens won't choke on peases of food. So yes I'd say you CAN start eating adult food.

    Hi, I have been eating Wellness Kitten, but now that I am 7 months old, mom is planning to change me to Wellness Indoor formula. Mom compared the ingredients and they are essentially the same. I really like this food and mom does too because it has no \"bad stuff\" in it like corn gluten and according to the company website they strive to prepare cat food that helps prevent problems like crystals, etc. Mom says \"purr-ventative medicine\" is a good thing. Spend a bit more on food now--prevent stressful and costly health problems in my future. Enjoy. |^|

    Thank you so much for your advice! I think I'll tell Mommy to go for it and buy the Wellness wet cat food! Mommy did write to Wellness and hopefully she'll get a response before Mommy's internet-buying trigger finger gets the better of her. :)) Thank you!

    Your mommy has one of those fingers, too? I'll have to tell my daddy that mommy isn't the only one!

    Hi, Binks! Mommy's finger got the best of her. And Mommy says to give your Mommy a salute MOL. Moments ago, without having heard from Wellness, she went ahead and pushed the order button. We'll be getting one of each flavor of adult Wellness canned, plus the Super 5 Cat mix. She got so trigger-happy, she also ordered up Wysong's Nurture. And now she's wondering if she should have also ordered Evolve. ;) Mommy needs to do more research on Catster about Evolve now :)) in case she needs to email the place to re-do her order. P.S. Chester - thanks for the tip to compare ingredients - I don't know why I didn't think to do that. Yes, I did find that the cat and kitten formulas are almost identical!

    As long as your kitty is growing normally and everything is ok, then adult formula should be perfect of him. When Lilly's cousin was a kitten (around 7 months of age) he was put on Lilly's diet. That is canned food from Wellness (adult) and dry Serengeti cat food mixed together. Serengeti is made by Timberwolf Organics and it is an all life stage formula, meaning every age can eat it %:D%

    also you can check the back of the bag or the can and check to see if it approved for all life stages..
