A Non-GMO Uristic Formula
Uristic is a word that means our cat food is optimized for long term urinary tract health. The amino acid DL-Methionine raises the acidity of urine, which helps break down urine crystals, in turn reducing inflammation of the urinary tract. DL-Methionine occurs naturally in our fresh ingredients and we supplement it to reach the exact level needed for your cat's long-term health.

Recommended Daily Feeding for Adult Cats
Your cat’s requirements may vary from the feeding guide below. Adjust quantities as necessary to maintain optimal weight. Feed your adult cat on a “free choice” basis. Serve the recommended amount of food each morning, and allow your cat to “nibble” throughout the day. If you need to feed separate meals, divide daily amount into equal portions. If you’re unsure about how much to feed your cat, seek veterinary advice.
If feeding Grandma Mae’s Country Naturals Cat & Kitten food for the first time, gradually adjust your cat’s current diet to avoid stomach upset. Mix 1/4 part Grandma Mae’s Country Naturals food with current food for 2-3 days. Gradually increase the new food and decrease current food over 7-10 days until you are feeding all Grandma Mae’s Country Naturals food. Keep fresh drinking water available at all times.
Recommended Daily Feeding for Kittens
Switch your kitten from mother’s milk to solid food at 4-5 weeks. To ease the adjustment, Grandma Mae’s Country Naturals Cat & Kitten Food may be moistened with water. Add one part water to three parts food.
Daily portions can vary according to age, activity, and temperament of your kitten. The entire suggested daily amount should be placed in your cat’s feeding dish. A supply of fresh drinking water should be provided at all times. See your veterinarian regularly.
One standard 8oz measuring cup holds approximately 4.25oz of Grandma Mae's Country Naturals food. Pregnant or Nursing Queens: Feed two to three times the adult amount.
