How to feed a kitten?

The kitten should receive food strictly in accordance with their needs and age. It is important to consider the frequency of feeding and ensure that the animal does not overeat.

Industrial rations
The only right choice of food for a kitten is specially designed for it dry and wet food of industrial production. They are designed taking into account the characteristics of the body of a young animal and contain in the right proportions necessary for the harmonious development of vitamins and minerals.

For example, a kitten needs more energy from eating than an adult. He also needs a significant amount of amino acids, calcium, phosphorus, copper. A digestibility of protein contained in the diet should be at least 85%.

Age matching
Pet begins to consume solid food from the age of 3-4 weeks, including tasting it from the mother’s bowl. At this time, the Royal Canin Mother & Babycat rations can be recommended as the first feeding of a pet.

Completely from kitten milk, the kitten refuses, as a rule, to reach 6–10 weeks of age. Now for him the best combination of dry and wet rations. For example, you can combine Perfect Fit Junior dry food and jelly with Whiskas turkey. There are matching offers for kittens from the brands Royal Canin, Hill’s, Purina Pro Plan, Go !, etc.
Starting from 10–12 months, you can gradually feed adult foods into the pet’s diet. Specialized food for kittens loses its relevance.

Periodicity
During habituation to solid food, at the age of 1 to 3 months, the kitten should receive food 6 times a day. It is recommended to give it at the same time so that the animal is accustomed to a clear schedule.

4–9-month-old kitten should be fed 4 times a day. For example, in the morning and evening to give a bag of wet food, and the appropriate age portion of the dry diet – during the day.

When a kitten turns 9 months old, his body is almost fully formed. Then the animal can be transferred to an adult diet: 2 bags of wet food (one – in the morning, the second – in the evening) and the required amount of dry food, which should always be in a bowl.

Weight control
Kittens on average add 100 grams of weight per week. It is important to comply with this norm, avoiding neither overeating, nor serious underfeeding of the pet. Accordingly, it is necessary to adhere to the volume of feeding recommended by manufacturers.

Signs of animal satiety: rounded belly, washing, rumbling. If the kitten is hungry, he is restless, grabs the owners by the hands, bites and sucks his fingers.

However, even a well-fed pet can thus extort food. Such a kitten should be distracted by play or affection. And in any case, it is not necessary to succumb to blackmail: an extra portion can cause problems with digestion, and with constant overfeeding, the kitten faces obesity and other diseases.
