Young Again, Zero Mature Health Premium High Protein Cat Food


Our Zero Mature Premium High Protein Cat Food is formulated for all mature cats that are no longer growing bone and breeding males, not for use on pregnant or lactating females and must be the only food fed to cats that cannot tolerate excess starch levels.

Like lions and tigers, domesticated cats are obligate carnivores and by definition have no nutritional requirement for starch/carbohydrates or plant proteins in their diet. When a feline doesn’t eat her natural diet – meat and fat, she can become overweight and at risk for diabetes. Fortunately in many cases feline diabetes can be prevented, effectively treated and even reversed with diet and lifestyle changes. Feeding a proper carnivore diet like Young Again Zero Premium High Protein Cat Food can help your pre-diabetic or diabetic cat avoid starch and plant proteins by giving her a carnivore-based alternative to traditionally prescribed cat foods. As your cat matures, her body also requires less calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and other nutrients. Excess levels of these nutrients can actually create health problems in CRD and aging felines. Containing less than 1% starch and maintenance levels of key nutrients, our Zero Mature Health Premium High Protein Cat Food has been developed to help your mature cat combat aging. Cats naturally love the meaty taste and Young Again Zero Mature Health Premium High Protein Cat Food costs less than many cat foods recommended for felines that cannot tolerate excess starch.

The best way and the only way we recommend feeding our Young Again Cat Foods is free-choice feeding.


You need at least one bowl of food for every cat in the house. The bowl must be 8-10 inches across and about 1 inch deep. A standard 9 inch pie plate you can buy anywhere is perfect. Do not use those cute, little 4 inch cat dishes they sell everywhere. Water can be in any size bowl you want but we recommend bigger the better.

You must put 2 full 8oz cups of food in each bowl. The bowl must never be allowed to be less than half full at any given time; never. If you have to fill the bowl more than every 3 days then you need more food in the bowl.

Each bowl must be placed around the house so that when a cat is standing at any one bowl they will not be able to see any other cat, at any of the other bowls. Place bowls in different rooms and floors for best results.

That’s it. Follow these simple rules and you will have a happy, healthy feline household.

We know this is a different way to feed your cat, but when feeding Young Again Cat Food, it is the best way. Please read our paper on obesity/overeating in cats.

Before and during use, please close bag securely and shake to evenly distribute the external flavoring, probiotics and enzymes that settled during shipping.

There are two ways to feed Young Again Cat Foods:

At YA, we highly recommend Free-Choice feeding. Please follow the instructions carefully. For additional feeding suggestions and assistance, please read Transitioning your cat.

If you must restrict feed your cat, please use these guidelines:

Average consumption for 24 hours:
8 lb. cat –  Level ¼ cup 10 lb. cat – Rounded ¼ cup 12 lb. cat – Level 1/3 cup 15 lb. cat – Rounded 1/3 cup 20-25 lb. cat – Level ½ cup


For Maine Coons and other giant breeds add ¼ cup to each of above measures for 12 pounds and up.

PLEASE NOTE: Because Young Again is a nutritionally-dense food, your cat will eat much less than other cat foods.
