  • Kitten food restriction for proper growth

    It's time to start restricting the amount of food the cat consumes to a set amount each day and keeping an eye on their body condition once they have attained grown-up body weight or are quite near to it, that is, around the age of ten months. Starting to transition from free choice to a measured daily meal allowance at the age of ten months is generally a good idea.

    A newborn kitten should weigh around 100 grams. As a general rule, newborn kittens should weigh between two and three per cent of their mother. For instance, the kittens should be between 80 and 120 grams if the mother weighs around 4 kg.

FAQ

  1. What is the best food to feed a kitten?

    Kittens are only given their mothers' milk during the first few weeks after birth. Before switching to a comprehensive and balanced kitten meal, they are gradually introduced to moistened solid food.

    You can give your kitten wet, dry, or a combination of the two types of food because, like adult cats, they are adventurous eaters and like experimenting with different foods.

    They require animal-based protein as a portion of their diet, whether you are feeding a cat or a kitten. 

    Several foods high in protein that cats enjoy eating are fish of all kinds, including salmon, trout, tuna, and whitefish. Fowl, turkey and pheasant are good among poultry.

  2. Can kittens eat bananas?

    The short answer is yes, but although not poisonous to cats, bananas can still upset their stomachs. Many "human foods," such as chocolate, should never be given to cats or other pets since they are poisonous to them. However, bananas are one of the fruits that cats can occasionally eat in modest amounts—roughly one to two chunks, each measuring an inch. However, watch out for your cat eating any banana peels since the fruit's skin is indigestible and can cause a choking hazard.

  3. At what age can kittens eat dry food?

    Baby cat dry food should be fed to kittens that are 3 to 5 weeks old.

    Kitten dry food should be blended with wet food and given to kittens 5 to 6 weeks old. Cats older than seven weeks old can safely eat dry food. In order to prevent their stomachs from becoming upset by the change in diet, the two foods should be mixed together during weeks 5 and 6, which are transition weeks. 

  4. Do kittens really need kitten food?

    Kittens need more protein, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins than other animals. They need roughly 30% of their energy from protein. Due to these factors, the majority of professionals advise feeding your kitten specially prepared kitten foods up until age one.

  5. What food do you start kittens on?

    A timeline is provided below to assist you in choosing what to feed your growing kitten:

    Up until the age of 4-6 weeks, mothers typically take care of feeding their kittens. You can give your kittens a newborn milk replacement formula if you have a newborn kitten that is not being fed by its mother because of illness or rejection. Newborn kittens must often eat, typically every 2-4 hours until they are 4 weeks old. 

    At 6 to 8 weeks old, your kitten should have finished weaning and be more accustomed to eating solid meals. A clean, fresh bowl of water should always be provided, and kitten-specific wet and dry food should be chosen. At this age, most kittens eat three to four times daily.

    When your kitten turns 8 weeks old, continue feeding your kitten up to four times a day, using premium kitten food, until it is 6 months old. When they are six months old, you can cut back on feeding them to just two meals a day.
