Transition to dry?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
6 of the 11 foster kittens are 5-6 weeks old... they are well old enough to be eating dry food. But they won't eat it. I have 3 bowls sitting out 24/7 for them.. but they won't touch it.

I have the Royal Canin BabyCat, Performatrin's Kitten, and even some Meow Mix.. but they don't want anything.
It will be a lot easier on me time wise and cash wish if they start eating dry, as I am going through a large tin and sometimes a half a large tin a day just on those 6 little guys. And it's not cheap food.

Is there anything I can do to entice them along?

Are you moistening it?

I usually moisten it with their formula, & then swab a bit of the mushy dry on the roof of their mouths. Or else I mix their canned in...perhaps put the dry on top of the canned they eat.

Add some warm water or a warm mix of KMR with water to soften it. Over the next few weeks they will get more interested in mostly dry.
