5 Key Takeaways on the Road to Dominating Animals
There’s no substitute for mother’s milk to give your kitty a great, healthy start in life. Of course, when you’ve brought her home, she should eat food for kittens. If you go with a brand different from that which she was weaned on, use the same kitten food she’s used to and, within about 7 to 10 days, switch her slowly to her new diet, raising the amount of her new food by 25% each time. On her first three or four days, for instance, feed her only 75% of her old food with 25% of her new food, and then make it 50-50 until she’s fully adapted to her new diet.

Yes, she may grow fast, but she will have problems with her joints and bones when she becomes a full-fledged adult. Moving into Adult Food Once your kitty weighs about 90% of her adult weight, then she is generally considered an adult. On their first year of life, kittens will surely need their kitten food. If you don’t know for sure where your kitty is on her growth curve, bring her to the vet so she can be checked, and you will know if her development has been normal.
