I need help again, Can anyone tell me what the procedure is for starting the kittens on food? I don't know what steps to take and in major need of help. Thank You all again for coming to my rescue when she was due. Shannon
I agree about the wet food. If you can find it try to use kitten food, as it has more of what the kittens need than an adult blend. I would also add a teaspoon of plain yogurt to a 6oz size can for the extra calcium. Put it out in a couple of bowls as mom will certainly want to eat it as well and may push the kittens away from her dish. The kitten food won't hurt her either as it will help replace what she is using to feed the babies. If you have one that won't eat it try feeding it away from the rest, or try a baby food meat (no onions or onion powder in the ingredients). We use Beech Nut or Gerber. You might also mix up some Kitten Glop which is easy to make and inexpensive.
