My 4 month old British shorthair is on a raw meat diet and doesn't eat much in one sitting. I try to sneak in extra food by mixing it in with kitten milk formula (KRM brand) which she loves. I give this to her once a day mixed in with any refrigerated leftover raw meat that she didn't finish earlier in the day. Any issues with doing this or does feeding her formula as a treat become detrimental to her health as she gets older?

I don't think it's an issue, I've done similar with my own cats when they struggle to gain weight, though I've never tried it with a raw meat diet.
One thing to be aware of is that KMR does contain lactose. Newborn kittens can digest lactose alright, but older cats become lactose intolerant and it can result in diarrhea or other issues. However, fed in small doses lactose shouldn't hurt most cats. I'd advise you to keep an eye on her stools just in case.

Good to know! I'll keep an eye on her litter box to see if she's having any issues digesting.
