Adding a kitten to an adult household

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
The plan seems we will be adding a kitten from Ginger's litter to our household. The boys Jack and Harley currently eat three meals a day a dry/wet meal in the morning and two raw meals in the evening.

How in the world do I handle feeding a kitten amongst this all?

Raw is easy just feed 4-10% of body wt per day ... or on ave what the adults eat ie say your 10lb kitty eat s 4 oz your 2 lb kitty would likely need 3-4

canned is simliar to raw basically up to triple what the same size adult would eat ... ie 10 lb adult 5-10 oz so a 5lb kitten 5-10 oz

dry most are free feed so if you cant or wont use the above

How often would I need to feed the kitten wet or raw?

The bummer is that I have been part-time work for a year and when the kitten is ready to leave mom I will be back to full time work (thankfully, one of the reason's we can add a third).

I would do a minimum of three feedings ...Hopefully a resident kitten expert will chime in but IMHO 6 small meals would work for a under 6 month if you can

What is going to happen to Ginger and the rest of her babies?

They will be adopted out and if all else fails will head to the local no kill shelter--that actually is in the process of moving to a brand new state of the art facility.
