Dry food is not needed for kittens, high protein and low carb wet food is much better. Adding water to dry food is not a good idea either, as it will grow bacteria if not eaten right away.
Unfortunately, your kitten has gotten used to dry food early. They can become dry food...
Some brands have higher protein in the kitten vs adult food. Some brands say for all life stages.
As I understand, if you are feeding a good quality ( high protein/ low carb and no added sugar) wet food, then kitten specific is not important.
Just seeing this thread, did you get your kitten yet?
i agree, go for two, especially as they will be young and having a playmate and friend for life will be awesome.
I agree with you about all wet food. No need for any dry. Kittens should be transitioned slowly to new food, so feed...
@LittleLilly She definetly has some breed in her background, maybe Ragdoll or color point Siberian (Neva Masquarade).
Many breeds have been mixed with color point cats and color point cats in the west normally trace back to Siamese at some point / possibly Burmese.
As jcat said, Schesir is not a complete food but a supplement or treat food If you buy the little tins but the Schesir Bio in packets are a complete food.
Maybe try Wellness core shredded tins, they are in a sauce not jelly but your cats may like them and they are complete in nutrition.
I have heard people say their cats like Rosie's Farm a ZP own brand. I used Animonda myself & Leonardo for both kittens and adults. Animonda also has nice pates in foil packs for kittens along with the tins.
Yes, as Tobermory says, complete raw food, either ground/mince with a completer added to give all nutrients or buy premade raw.
That is what I do, I buy premade complete raw & store in the freezer till use.
Good advice above, I only feed wet and raw. Usually one defrosted raw meal a day and the rest wet.
Wet can be left out for several hours, so do not worry if you have a grazer. Much better to graze on wet than dry food:cool2:
