There is absolutely no need for "life stage" foods. Or for differently formulated foods for different breeds. As one of my vet friends likes to say, "there are no 'kitten mice,' 'tartar control lizards' or 'senior cat crickets' in the wild."
A kitten eats more food (per pound of weight), but not different food. A kitten needs a high-protein, meat-based diet. An adult cat needs a high-protein, meat-based diet. A senior cat needs a high-protein, meat-based diet. Are there situations when it's appropriate to adjust the diet based on health issues? Absolutely. But kittens, adult cats, and senior cats all thrive on a large amount of animal-based proteins (meat, organs) and all get much less nutritional support from plant-based proteins.
