How to Feed a Kitten in a Fun Way

Your kitten loves to play, even at mealtimes. By livening things up a bit, you’ll stimulate your kitten’s natural hunting instincts and strengthen the bond you’re building with her. Here are some ideas to bring a little fun to feeding time!

Feeding time fun

  • Fill a plastic bottle with some Whiskas® Junior Dry, leaving the lid off or cutting a small hole in the side so the dry biscuits fall out as your kitten plays with it

  • Place some dry food in a brown paper bag and loosely close the end

  • Put some dry food in a feeding ball

  • Place a small portion of Whiskas® Junior Dry in a pan or box, then cover it over with shredded paper

  • Put some dry food in two attached cups perforated with small holes

  • Hide some Whiskas® Junior Dry inside crumpled-up pieces of paper

  • Divide your kitten’s meal into several bowls and place them all around the room

  • Pack some dry food into an empty drink carton in which you’ve made random holes

  •  

Playing with food


If none of those activities are quite energetic enough for your kitten, these ideas will give her even more of a work-out:

  • Throw Whiskas® Junior Dry to your cat, encouraging her to chase after it

  • Use one of the feeding toys described above, but this time hold it up high and entice your kitten to climb, jump or run to retrieve the food

  • Encourage your kitten to stand on her hind legs and reach for a piece of dry food with her paw

  • Hide some dry food in the garden or under a box, and encourage your kitten to search for it

  •  

Some kittens will play happily whether there’s food involved or not. Either way, activites like these are a great way to make sure your kitten stays fit, active and healthy.
