Kitten food or "All Life Stages?"

For those who feed commercial cat food, do you use the cans marked specifically "kitten" food, the ones for "All life stages" or both?

Is there are reason to use one versus the other?

With my previous cat I just bought Science Diet kibble (that's what she was on when we rescued her), starting with the kitten formula and moved on to each new life stage as needed. We literally never used another brand.

As I mentioned elsewhere, I plan to do all wet food with my new kitten.
What do you use?

There really isn't a lot of canned food that's made specifically for kittens. I use kitten, all life stages, and adult food. I do a rotation so I don't think it really matters.

I dont think it matters. after all, in the wild, there are no mice marked for adult cats and kittens, so all stages good quality food will be fine.

just be sure your kitten gets enough - kitten's food intake per body weight is usually much higher than in adult cat so dont be surprised

LOL. I just came from Dr. Pierson's site and she said something similar. Love it!
