My Kitten Bruce is my best friend in the whole wide world. Looking after him from 9 weeks old we have created a bond that I have never had with any of my other pets including my dog. So obviously I try give Bruce the best of everything I can - Including his food.
I do worry about Bruce sometimes as he is a greedy little sod, which is why I try give him dry food rather than wet cat food. His favourite food being - GO-Cat.
Go-Cat comes in an easy to open and pour box. The box is bright in colour and comes in different size. I usually go for the biggest box just for value for money - and it lasts longer. The Go-Cat dry food comes in a variety of flavours. Bruce usually likes Seafood and Fish flavours but he really likes the chicken flavour in this range too.
The Go-Cat range is very reasonably price and is available from most supermarkets. Luckily I have been able to buy boxes of this food for Bruce from my local Poundshop too. (Bargain)
A large box usually lasts me 2 - 3 weeks as my kitten is eating a lot at the moment.
He really likes this food, it seems easy for him to digest and its easy on my purse!
I would recommend this to any loving cat owner!
Go cat is a well known cat food brand, it can be purchased in most supermarkets, pet shops and online pet shops. They are known for their quality and reasonable prices. They has distinct yellow packaging with pretty ginger cats on the front. They offer lots of varieties i.e kitten food, adult, mature, sensitive stomach, indoor cats etc.
We have always fed the Go Cat adult food to our 4 year old cat, he always enjoys it and i also find it doesn't smell too bad.
When we got our new kitten the lady who we got him from he told us she had been feeding the kitten go cat kitten so we were happy because it's cheap and a good quality food.
But when we got our kitten home he wouldn't eat the Go cat kitten and the smell of the food was unbearable i wasn't impressed at all.
We went and bought a packet of whiskas kitten dry food and he absolutely loves it. I don't know why he wouldn't eat the Go cat.
Thanks for reading
For various reasons I am trying to feed my kitten a mixed diet of both wet and dry food. My kitten seems to get more excited by a bowl of wet food, but he certainly doesn't turn his nose up at this.
Benefits of dry cat food include the fact that is it good for their dental health and helps with chewing muscles.
What I like about the dry food is that he does seem to pace himself more with it, eating a couple of pieces and will keep some for later. With the wet food it's gone in seconds. This is why before bed I will put some out and he will go back to it a couple of times during the night if he needs to.
Another thing I like about this is that, storage wise, it's good. It doesn't smell as much as wet food and is easy to use by tearing a serrated strip on the side of the box to open and pour from which can also be closed again.
The 375g box I picked up is Go-Cat complete for kittens up to 1 year with chicken, milk and added egetables. IT promotes good eyesight, a healthy heart, strong bones and teeth, healthy growth and natural defences.
The dry food should be introduced at 3-4 weeks with a bit of water, although our kitten didn't take to any solid food well until around 6 weeks, choosing to suck all water out of it and spit the rest out like the gentleman that he is.
The box has guidelines on how many grams of food per day your kitten should be getting according to age. This will need to be adjusted if you are feeding a mixture of dry and wet food. It is also suitable for pregnant and nursing cats.
The food is in different colours and shapes and are in small bite sized pieces suitable for a small kittens mouth. The kitten eats a small amount of this daily, as well as wet food and seems to enjoy it. I would recommend it as it is good for your kitten and it is a good price.
The 375g box is £1.10 in Tesco, larger bags and boxes are also on sale. The other kind of Go Cat kitten food is chicken, carrot and milk nuggets. This is currently on offer is Tesco with a 950g box costing only £2.
My kitten Myrtle is an extremely fussy 5 month old. I have been feeding her on 'wet' food cos although she was weaned on dry food by her breeder I could never get her to eat it so I gave up.
However on a recent trip to the vets for her kitten injections the vet told me to get her on to dried food as its better for her teeth and that wet food can contribute to diabetes. I bought a very expensive dried cat food that Myrtle wouldn't touch so during a recent visit to my local Asda store I picked up a box of this and was pleased it was only £1.10 for quite a large box.
The food comes in a bright yellow box and on the front of it there is a photograph of three lovely kittens and we are told that it is Purina Go-Cat Complete For Kittens Up To 1 Year 'With Chicken, Milk And Added Vegetables' and that there is a satisfaction guarantee given with this or money back and that it weighs 375g. On the back of the box other information listed includes being told a lot about the product and the benefits of it, the other varieties of Go-Cat available, then on the sides of the box ingredients and feeding advice is given and contact details for the manufacturer are lsited. There is a side flap opening which securely closes and all in all this is a nice sturdy and informative box.
The dried food is just that and you get lots of very small shapes in dark green, cream and brown colours and you really do get a lot of it. On the side of the box we are told how much to give the kitten depending on its age and it tells you how many times a day to feed as well. I did measure this out with scales to get it right to be honest the first day I planned her to eat only this!
The food to me has a slight fishy fragrance to it though it isn't very strong.
However Myrtle will eat a couple of bites of this and it sounds crunchy as shes eats it but there is no way I ever feel she has eaten a meal of it. I persevere with it but it just sits there really and try as I may she won't eat too much sadly.
With added vitamins that are to help promote general good health and strong bones I did hope that she would go for this but I don't know if it is this she doesn't like or dried food in general!
Available in all good supermarkets and pet shops.

When we first got our two cats they were just 12 weeks old. I wasn't really sure what they had been weaned onto but thought it best to buy foods designed for kittens. Naturally, you have to make sure cats have good teeth so some sort of biscuit is essential to keep them strong and healthy. We gave Go Cat Kitten biscuits a try and they were an instant hit!
The biscuits are small enough for little mouths, so the kitten won't choke on them. They are specially formulated to suit kittens up to one year old and contain all the nutrients that they need to develop and grow into healthy cats. They contain vitamins and minerals to help bones grow strong and promote health, so I think they are a must-buy if you have kittens. I believe they are also suitable for pregnant queens too.
The cost of the biscuits are pretty reasonable at £1.19 for a 375g box. Kittens only have small tums, so don't need too much at each feed until they are much older.
Our cats are now adults and very healthy, and I put that down the good start in life that we gave them. They got the best as far as I am concerned and now have strong healthy teeth, good bones and sleek coats. I have to add that they are now also exceedngly fussy eaters and won't have anything other than top brand bisuits, even if that means they go without!
So, if you have or ar thinking of getting kittens, do make sure you give them the best that you can possibly afford. Go Cat Kitten really does help get them off to a good start!
The only flavour that Go-cat does in kitten food is chicken, carrot and milk. I think it's a bit disappointing because I think after a few months of eating the same food for breakfast lunch and dinner she got a bit bored of it and stopped eating it straight away and only when she was really hungry. At first my cat would only eat this brand of cat food but she grew on to Whiska's probably because it had meaty nuggets in their kitten food.
My cat really didn't like the milk flavour kibbles (white) and would just leave them in her bowl and eat the rest. I'm not sure if it's because she didn't like the smell or the taste. My cat is probably an exception because from reading other reviews, other cats love it! It all depends on the cat and their preferences but if you do decide to purchase this don't worry about the nutritional aspect as it contains vitamins that are all essential for your kittens growth and well-being.
6-12 weeks: 25-90g
3-6 months: 50-115g
6-12 months: 60-115g
The above is just a rough guideline but also from the gocat website you can download a feeding cone which shows you how much to feed according to your cats weight.
This cat food offers 100% complete nutrition and you do not have to give anything extra other than fresh water daily. However it is often nicer to the cat to give treats every so often, how would you like eating the same food every day? You could also feed less of this dry kibble food and mix with a different brand of wet pouches.
Go-cat kitten food is relatively cheap at around £1 for a 375g box which will last about a week, £2.50 for a 950g box or in a larger 2kg bag around £5.50 which is much better value for money and will last around a month and you'll never be short in supply.
When it comes to my kitten, I always want to give him the best food possible to ensure he grows up healthily and keeps well. I have been using the GoCat brand for quite a while now and didn't hesitate when it came to buying dry food for my kitten in using them again. They do quite a range of dry food combinations but I bought the Carrot, Chicken combination as my kitten seems to really like it. He still keeps wanting to eat what my older cat has but we have been very strict in keeping him on kitten food as we want to make sure he grows properly.
The box of GoCat is very distinct and you can spot it a mile away coming in that bright yellow box. The front of the rectangular box has a picture of two ginger cats and then it has an image of the food itself and a pink panel which has the age group it is for in there and the flavour and I bought the 950g box. It is a really informative box giving you all of the necessary information to reassure you, you are using the right product and doing everything correctly.
Meat and Animal Derivatives (min 4% Chicken in Brown Kibbles), Cereals, Vegetable Protein Extracts, Oils and Fats, Fish and Fish Derivatives, Minerals, Yeasts, Milk and Milk Derivatives (min 4% Milk in White Kibbles), Vegetables (min 4% Carrot in Orange Kibbles).
GO CAT COMPLETE
This product is to kickstart your kitten with a complete balanced diet and it is made from protein rich meats and vegetables and has been made to ensure correct growth for kittens. It is to be given to kittens when they are being weaned and the option of giving it with water is given to make it easier for kittens to digest. When kittens can eat this on their own then you can start to increase how much you give them and just always make sure the water is clean as dust etc can collect in it over the course of the day.
The age categories are vital on this which are listed on the side of the box. If your kitten is 6-12 weeks old then 25-90 grams in 2-3 meals is required. If it is 3-6 months then 50-120 grams is required for 2 meals. At 6-12 months 120-160 grams in 2 meals and then these are the main categories you will need to look out for. My kitten is still in the 6-12 weeks old category so we only give him a small bowl with a bowl of water right beside it too so that he can digest it fine.
Included in this kibble are essential minerals and vitamin D which will give your kitten strong bones and teeth. Taurine is in them for a healthy heart and good eyesight, vitamins to maintain its natural defences and protein to help with growth also so overall a good combination to ensure a very healthy kitten. I stick to the instructions on the box and my kitten seems to eat these fine, during the day he always finishes these all up and seems to enjoy these which is always a good thing to see as I do worry.
He seems to have a good appetite which is also great and these kibble are not too big they are small and in the box when you pour them out are small biscuits that are brown, orange and beige so a mix and they seem to be just right for them to consume. I would fully recommend this GoCat Complete for anyone with kittens who wants to feel happy that their kitten is getting the best diet to grow up to be healthy and well.
You can buy GoCat Complete in all supermarkets and pet stores and it comes in different sized boxes. In Asda at the moment the cost of the 375g box is 98p which is a bargain and should last you atleast a week which is a competitive price. I do like to buy the bigger boxes though as they last longer and the 950g is roughly £2.63 depending on which flavour you opt for. Lastly, if you really want a big bag to keep you going then you can buy a 2kg bag which will cost you £5.43 but should last you atleast a month, if not more.
The GoCat website is at http://www.go-cat.co.uk/ which has lots of facts about your cat and about the GoCat Kitten range.
It has been a very long time since I have owned a kitten, so when I recently got a new rescue kitty I struggled to know what to feed him, especially with there being so many choices, brands and varieties of food out there. Between the confusion and franctic searching of the supermarket aisles I came across Go Cat Kitten. I didn't really know anything about the kitten food on offer, but had had some very positive experience with go cat adult salmon food before so thought I would give it a go.
Four weeks after purchasing the kitten food my kitten tommy is still loving eating it and he looks a lot healthier, more bouncy, and just generally happy in himself. He is only 3 months old and so will be on it for a bit longer, but I am very happy with the cat food in general. I buy him the fish based food which contains salmon which seems to be his favourite. I have tried him on chicken and other meat based dry foods but he seems to be having none of it. The price of the food varies, I think this is dependant on where you buy it from and if you buy it in bulk. I buy mine from my local supermarket, and recently it has been on offer for just a £1.00 at a local pet store which I thought was fantastic, so I stocked up.
The box the kitten food comes in is very clear to read and easy to understand and what's even better is that you get feeding instructions/guidelines on the back to help you with the amount of food you give your kitten at each setting/meal time. The box I usually buy is the 375g box, and on average this lasts me nearly 2 weeks, which for me represents really good value for money.
I feed both my kittens on Go Cat Kitten. My kittens are now six months old. They both absolutely love their Go Cat Kitten biscuits. They chomp their bowls full down like there is no tomorrow and will happily sit and ask for more, despite having Whiskas Kitten meat in their bowls too!
Go Cat Kitten contains essential minerals, vitamins and milk to help your kitten grow. It is supposed to give them strong teeth and bones. I have definately noticed the difference in my two kittens since they have been eating Go Cat Kitten. Both have put on weight and their coats shiny beautifully. Go Cat Kitten also contains something called Taurine which helps to give you cat a healthy heart and good eyesight. It promotes activity - which I can deifnately vouch for as my two tear up and down the stairs and find it difficult to stop because they are moving so fast!
The biscuits themselves are small enough for the tiny mouths of kittens and look crunchy. They are in a variety of colours inside - brown, orange and white. The packs let you know how much of the dry food your kitten should be having.
Go Kitten comes in two sizes which are 375g and 950g. We always buy the 950g which lasts us about a week and can be picked up in most supermarkets for around £2.50.
Purina Go-Cat Complete Kitten:
Purina Go-Cat Complete Kitten is a complete dry food for Kittens upto one year old. This is one of Tifa's favourites which she always has to hand whenever she is hungry.
Dry food is great when you have cats; it won't go off so quickly so you can leave some out all the time for whenever your cat wants to graze which they seem to like doing. Tifa still insists on "wet" food everyday but I only give her one pouch now and the rest of her nutrition comes from these biscuits.
The box is mainly yellow with a pink bit at the side and two cute ginger kittens and the logo on the front. (I should just mention that the flavour I have is chicken, carrots and milk nuggets but I have not seen another flavour). All the usual information like ingredients, nutrition and all the necessary product promotion stuff. There is a little flap which opens on the side to let the biscuits out and I find that it works well, doesn't break and let's the biscuits pour out easily.
The biscuits are little y shapes, some are a dull brown and some are a reddish brown colour. There are also little white balls which are milk "nuggets" which provide your kitten with calcium for healthy growth.
Obviously I don't know what the biscuits taste like but Tifa loves them. She knows the sound the biscuits make and always comes running when she hears it. It is a good way to coax her out of places that she shouldn't be too! She likes the balls of milk best and always eats these first but she doesn't leave any of the others so there is no waste. I love the way Tifa licks her lips for ages after she eats these biscuits which is cute!
Nutrition wise these biscuits seem well balanced they contain protein, fat, ash, fibre, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, methionine, copper, several vitamins and taurine, amongst other things. Cats need all of these things in their diet so I am happy that Tifa is getting the nutrition that she needs! There are instructions on the box for weaning but I got Tifa when she was already fully weaned.
These biscuits cost me around £1.00 -£1.20 for 375g which lasts at least a week. Sometimes it's on offer and then I tend to stock up!
When we got our delightful little kitten we were given guidance on the food he was used to so we decided to carry on with his diet. One of the foods he has is Go Cat Kitten and he absolutely loves it. In fact he loves it so much that I would never not give it him and if he sees a box of it sitting there and he hasn't had any that day, he will nudge at it and try and get it out. I think Go Cat Kitten food is very healthy for him to have and I have been very happy with the product.
So you can buy Go Cat kitten from most places such as supermarkets, pet stores and Pets at home so practically anywhere you can find pet food. They are in square boxes which come in two sizes which are 375g and 950g. The boxes are bright yellow so you can't really miss them and the kitten box has a pink section which states kitten in large letters. There is a big selection of these Go Cat products so you should be able to find one for whatever age cat you have.
Now the flavour Go Cat for kittens is chicken, carrots and milk nuggets and my kitten goes mad for them. The packet is square so can easily be stored and it also has perforated section on the side so it is easy to open the pack and then easy to pour the food into whatever bowl you have for your pet.
This food is dry food and when you open the pack it does not smell at all really. I mean if you get your nose right next to the pack then it smells sort of like beef jerky but compared to wet food it is odourless. It pours into the bowl easy and it looks very edible really. They are not necessarily small pieces and are brown, green and orange and my little one loves them.
Seriously the moment you put it in his bowl, he is lapping them up and he does have a little whine when he comes to the end of them and now because he doesn't leave the box alone, we have had to hide them.
The packs do have recommended amounts to feed your pet on the back which is very helpful indeed as because they are kittens you don't want to under or over-feed them at all. The recommendation for my kitten now is 60 - 120g because he is between 6 and 12 months old. This seems the right amount as it will last him just about all day and with having wet food as well he would be getting fat if he had any more.
We always buy the 950g pack and it usually lasts us just over a week and costs £2.19 from our supermarket which is not that bad at all. We use it in conjunction with wet food too. Go Cat kitten in my opinion has helped out kitten to grow healthily and I will continue to feed him Go Cat when he becomes an adult cat in a few months.
Due to Go Cat being readily available and relatively cheap and loved by my kitten I would recommend it to other people.
Thanks for reading.
I have a kitten cat and an old age pensioner cat. Although my OAP cat is 17 he is very healthy but not got many teeth left although his gums are rock hard! I have found the perfect dry food biscuits for them both though. Go Cat made by friskies not only does their complete (biscuits) for "normal" cats but also does one for kittens and yet another for the over 8s. called Go cat senior. It still comes in many varieties like all the go cat does. Aparently the Senior is especially formulated to produce a slightly acidic urine pH to help the older cats. My cats certainly like the different kinds suited to them though whatever it is that is in it. I give this to them with their ordinary food and for the kitten it is good for its teeth.It might mean having two separate boxes for your kitten and your elderly cat but they are different in their eating and you can be sure that it is not the same food just called kitten and senior. Be sure you put water down for your cat though as I find they do like a good drink afterwards and if like mine after these biscuits prefer water to milk. Go Cat is a few pennies more than supermarkets own cat biscuits but I find it worth the extra few pennies. I did do a test a little while ago leaving boxes of both Go Cat and the Tesco ones out and both cats went for go cat. Now wether that was coincidence or not I think they do prefer go cat to any other.
