Is he currently feed 50 wet 50 dry??
on ave dry has double the calories oz for oz to wet ...
Wet kitten would be great for a little girl starting out... dry is convenient and easy and cheap NOT really the best for a cat ... wet is way closer to natural diet
I would tell you to take the time to compare brands and adult vs kitten .... Or look for cans that the AFFCO statement is for growth and maintence or all life stages
