Good nutrition is so important in offering your kitten a happy and healthy lifestyle. It is recommended that kittens are fed up to 3 times a day, with an option of healthy treats or snacks in between.
When buying your kitten food, remember food labelled as ‘complementary’, will often mean additional to their complete food. You can offer home-cooked food such as raw or cooked liver, or their favourite boneless fish, and even cooked egg yolks. Always provide fresh water in multiple areas of the home to ensure your kitten is well hydrated. You can also offer kitten milk, which is specifically formulated for kittens.
Remember that cow’s milk is upsetting for kitten stomachs. Instead, you can provide some formulated kitten milk to help build strong bones and teeth. It is worth noting that cow’s milk will give your kitten or cat an upset stomach or even diarrhoea as it is not suitable for your feline’s digestive system.
Teething will happen at an early age and will just need some chew toys to help them come through.
After the age of 6 months, your kittens will feed more frequently. Dry food can be fed as complete nourishment and nutrition for your kitten’s diet. It is especially good for maintaining strong healthy teeth.
