What do kittens eat?

I try to accustom kittens to different foods. Usually by three months they are eating dry food, canned food and raw meat mixture. Now I’ll tell you and show you.



Dry food

Only premium food is needed

1. Royal Canin Feline Health Nutrition Mother & Babycat Dry Cat Food

2. Dr. Elsey’s cleanprotein Chicken Kibble Cat Dry Food

3. Purina Pro Plan Kitten Chicken & Rice Formula Dry Cat Food

Canned food

1. Purina Pro Plan Kitten Classic Salmon & Ocean Fish Entree Canned Cat Food

2. Royal Canin Feline Health Nutrition Mother & Babycat Ultra Soft Mousse in Sauce Canned Cat Food

Meat mixture

As for the recipe, we break it down into “rounds” and we usually do 6-8 rounds at a time and freeze it. Each round consists of: -As close to 5lb pack of chicken thighs (with bone) that we can find. We remove the bones from 2 out of the 10 thighs. And remove extra fatty skin from 3 or 4 of the thighs (chicken skin is pretty fatty, and other ingredients provide better source of fats) -1lb (16oz) of chicken hearts -0.5lb (8oz) chicken livers -5 egg yolks -1 tin of sardines in water -8oz of water And then, in the evenings we supplement with Kitty Bloom topper to provide and vitamins or minerals we may have missed.

The bones are ground in a meat grinder. I have a meat grinder like the one in the link, it grinds bones perfectly

I also recommend adding time every day in the first week, then less often.
