The kitten is going to need proper care and nutrition if you are thinking of getting a kitten, whether 3 weeks or 6 months old. Feeding grown felines could appear like an easy duty. However, feeding kittens could be a little harder. Here is how much to feed them:
During this time, it is really best that the kitten is still with its mother. However, even so, there could be issues. Have the vet examine it out if the mama cat refuses to nurse. She can have mastitis or anything that makes nursing uncomfortable.
You would have to hand feed the kitten with a bottle if the mama cat refuses to take care of the kitten. KMR is one brand of milk that could be seen at major pet shops. The vet might also have a recommendation for the formula. It is significant for the kittens to nurse for at least the 1st 48 hours if possible at all.
This is a slow procedure. Offer the kittens a mix of cat milk replacement (3 parts) with dry kitten food (one part) or milk replacement (2 parts) or wet kitten food (one part). Slowly reduce the liquid.
Kittens must be solely feeding on kitten food by ten weeks. During this time, kittens develop their preferences for food that would stay with them forever. Dry food or we food varies on you. Only in unique circumstances selected by the vet should you provide a kitten supplement.
