  • According to my viewpoint, it is highly necessary to ask your veterinary doctor who will provide the best suggestions on the high quality and natural foods suitable for your kitten during the first visit.
  • By this way, you can surely get to know about the type and amount of food you can feed to your little kitten.
  • At the same time, this feeding suggestion will be greatly helpful to set a regular feeding schedule for your kitten from the morning to night meals.
  • In most of the cases, the veterinarians suggest the kitten owners to give only the mother’s milk for the first few weeks and gradually start feeding some of the solid foods at the age of 8 weeks old.

​Knowing The Nutrition Basics For a Kitten:

  • Each and every kitten weighed only a few kg or ounces during the birth time. It should be raised at least about 2 pounds in the first 10 weeks.
  • The nutritional value of the kitten foods should contain all necessary vitamins, minerals and fiber contents to continue gaining the best energy for your kitten’s health.
  • Initially, the kittens start eating the solid foods or soft foods at the age of 4 weeks from birth.
  • The doctors are usually suggesting the meat based best kitten foods which are all definitely an ideal option to improve the nutritional value of their food items. But at the same time, it also has to drink the mother’s milk at this age along with these solid foods.

​I suggest you know the actual nutritional needs of the kitten and as well as get information what to know about feeding your kitten here at this platform.

  • The nutritional needs of the kitten are completely different from the nutritional needs of the adult cats. So, you have to give the foods which are all specially made for your kittens.
  • The dry foods are truly very convenient to feed for your kittens and it is not better than the canned foods. They have a higher amount of carbohydrates than some of the canned foods so your kitten will gain more weight easier when you allow overeating.
  • Instead of the dry foods, I suggestion everyone to give the canned foods to the kittens because they have more moisture than the dry foods. Thus, the canned foods will maintain the kitten’s body well hydrated at all the times.
