NS. LOUIS – Tiki Cat®, a line of cat foods and treats owned by Whitebridge Pet Brands, launched their newest cat nutrition solution on September 20th. The new product line, Tiki Cat Baby ™, has been specially developed for kittens from birth to 12 months of age.
The first product in this line is a dietary supplement specially formulated for underweight kittens.
The smooth, liquid dietary supplement was developed for easy ingestion and digestion and consists of chicken, liver and egg. It contains 28% fat and 25 calories per pack to help promote energy and healthy weight gain, according to the company.
Tiki Pets® cited Pet WebMD as saying that newborn kittens should gain at least 10 grams of body weight each day during development. The brand noted that this normal weight gain may require supplementation in some cases.
“If a newborn kitten is underweight or losing weight, the first thing parents should do is consult a veterinarian to make sure there are no underlying health problems,” said Ann Hudson, vice president of marketing at Tiki Pets. “If not, then Tiki Cat Baby Thrive can offer a perfect solution to getting kittens to their ideal weight and keeping them on their growth goal with healthy extra protein and high calories in a small serving that small stomachs can handle.”
Tiki Cat Baby Thrive dietary supplements are sold in packs of 20 single serving sachets.
This latest addition is joined by three other Tiki Cat baby formulas, including Mousse & Shreds, a “starter food” with mousse and finely chopped poultry proteins. This diet is designed for weaning kittens at least 4 weeks of age.
The other two recipes are whole foods – Chicken & Salmon Recipe and Chicken & Egg Recipe – which are suitable for kittens between 8 weeks and a year old. They are high in protein and fat to aid growth.
