At three weeks you can start feeding kittens wet food. Mix the wet food with kitten food to get the ball rolling. Either let kittens eat the mix themselves from a bowl or feed them kitten-specific bottles.
Feeding. When kittens are four weeks old, it’s time to get serious about the weaning process! Mix kitten food with wet food and either let the kittens feed themselves from a bowl or feed them the mixture using a kitten-specific bottle. Gradually adjust the mix to include more wet food and less formula.
Feeding only dry food or both wet and dry food is perfectly acceptable, but feeding only wet food can make it difficult for your kitty to get enough nutrients throughout the day. Dry food also helps keep your kitten’s teeth and gums healthy.
Feeding. At three weeks of age you can start feeding kittens wet food. Mix the wet food with kitten food to get the ball rolling. Either let kittens eat the mix themselves from a bowl or feed them kitten-specific bottles.
Feeding: Kittens should now be weaned and eat wet food mixed with baby cat dry food. Provide them with dry food and a bowl of water at all times. Also, feed the kittens two to three times a day with half a small can of wet food per kitten in a bowl.
4 week old kittens: start feeding – weaning period
Give 13-17ml of formula every 8 hours (3 times a day). While bottle-feeding, try to get the kittens to also eat porridge from a spoon or tongue depressor and from a bowl (see the porridge-making guide for more tips).
When you bring your kitten home, they should eat canned or dry food about four times a day. A quality kitten formula like BLUE Life Protection Formula® is optimal for proper nutrition during these rapid growth spurts.
Feed kittens under 2 weeks old at least every 2 hours. Kittens 2 to 4 weeks old should eat every 3-4 hours. If they sleep for a long time at night, don’t wake them up to eat. Feed weak or undereating kittens more often.
