For house cat kittens there is special 'kitten food', containing more nutrients than normal cat food in order to compensate for the fact that at pretty much any time of the day kittens spend a gazilion times as much energy as an adult cat would.
I know that most differences between cat foods are mainly marketing aimed at humans, but here there seems to be at least something 'real' about the difference, given that the vet told me not to let the adult cats eat from this high energy kitten food, as it would only make them fat. Also, of course, the claim that kittens spend more energy than adult cats is easily verified by just looking.
So my question is: does this 'special food for kittens because of them being so energetic' have any analogue for big cats such as lions, leopards, lynxes etc? Is the part of the meat that a lioness gives to her cubs qualitatively different (e.g. another body part) than the part she keeps for herself?
(To be clear: the question is really about big cats. When I want to know more about food for house cats the internet is full of information, but I found it hard to find anything detailed on what cubs of big cats eat and how it differs from the food of their adult peers at all.)
