Kitten Food ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Pumpkin is almost 4 months old and I find wet kitten food is very limited in stores. Can I start mixing adult wet food into his kittie food? Im thinking he isnt getting enough calories. I do leave out dry food out through the day.

I start switching my kittens over to adult food by 4-5 months old, depending on the build of the cat. My rex kittens (who only get 5-7 lbs when grown, were on adult foods by 4 months old. Charlie (he's a solid 12 lbs now - full grown) was on adult foods by 5 months old.

If your kitten is in good health, I see no reason that you can't start him on adult canned foods. Is the dry food kitten food and what kind?

The dry kitten food is Nutro kitten for indoor cats...he will eat that as a last resort. Maybe I should give him a different brand...any recs? Thanks

Maybe Royal Canin or Natural Balance or Wellness? But if you are switching dry, you have to do it gradually.

I wouldn't try to switch to dry-- just keep it out if he wants it but still mostly feed wet.

My kitten is 5 months and eats mostly adult wet food-- the options for kitten wet food is limited and I've only found them in the 3 oz size-- that would cost me over $3/day to feed him Wellness in the small can size.
