In exciting news, Black Hawk has launched a new range of cat foods. Featuring premium, natural ingredients, delivering the tastes and textures cats love, plus the complete and balanced nutrition they need.
You may notice our existing and new foods in pet stores. If you currently feed your feline friend this food then we recommend transitioning them to this new recipe.
Specially formulated for growing kittens, with higher* levels of energy, protein and essential vitamins and minerals to help keep pace with their fast growth and high activity. The textured kibble is purposely smaller for their little mouths and teeth.
We only use high quality meats, grains, vegetables, pulses and fruit to provide optimal nourishment for your kitten.
This dry kitten food is made with Australian chicken, a delicious and lean protein packed with amino acids, which are essential for building strong bones and healthy muscles. Chicken also provides vitamins B3 and B6, which aid metabolism. Rice is an important ingredient as it is an excellent source of carbohydrate and helps provide energy to the body and brain of a fast-growing kitten.
Chicory root, a natural prebiotic, is included to aid intestinal health, and the addition of eggs, a complete source of essential amino acids, supports muscle growth and repair.
Original Chicken & Rice is a great tasting food to keep your kitten eager at mealtimes, fuelling their growth and development.

Hi everyone, I am a breeder of Norwegian Forest Cats and this year I had a very fussy eater to say the least. Nina was the kitten to turn her nose up at everything. Nothing was good enough for her. She was always behind her sister weight wise and her coat was terrible, flat and dull. My friend gave me a sample of Black Hawk Kitten and boy what a shock, she absolutely loved them. Her coat is now silky soft and a healthy shine. All my cats are on Black Hawk now. My saying is why try the rest when your feeding the best.
Christine, Nina's Mum

Frequently Asked Questions
How much should I feed my cat?
You should feed your cat according to the feeding guidelines on the pack or use our online feeding calculator. The feeding guide will give you a quantity based on your cat's weight, but if you feel like your cat is overweight or underweight - we recommend feeding according to the weight they were when they were healthiest.
What are the advantages of feeding dry and wet cat food?
Mixed feeding means feeding a mix of both, dry kibble and wet foods. There are many advantages for both, such as looking after your cats mental wellbeing by providing enrichment, providing all-important hydration to your cat, looking after your cats dental health and it can be useful when needing to administer medicine.
Who formulates the Black Hawk range of pet foods?
We have an in-house formulation team with a collective 59 years of applied experience who are qualified in veterinary and nutritional science, including degrees in Animal Nutrition from the School of Environmental and Rural Science at the University of New England.
We also employ 3 vets in our Research & Development team, who have worked in clinical practice and have extensive experience in the commercial pet food industry. They work with an external network of veterinarians, clinical specialists, nutritional scientists and researchers.
Being an Australian-formulated and produced product, our team knows our recipes inside-out, and we’re close to the manufacturing process
Will my pet get an upset stomach if I change their food?
No matter the product, when feeding your dog or cat a new food it is important that you transition them gradually in order to ensure that they don’t get an upset stomach.
We recommend that over a 5-7 day period, you increase the increments of the new food 25% at a time. So 25%, 50%, 75% and then eventually after 5-7 days, 100% of the new dog food.
Where can I find ingredients and nutritional information for your food?
All Black Hawk packaging have the ingredients listed, as well as the nutritional information such as protein, fat etc.
You can also see this information on the product page for each of our products on this website.
