Cat food help
My kitten is 10/11 months old, and i was wondering if its ok to start him on adult food? and how much to feed him?
I have been feeding my cat adult food for a few months now, but he is going to be one at the end of the month. Nothing has happened though. And I just leave a bowl out because he sleeps all day and gets up at random times so I never know when to give him food, but if you want to measure it out the food usually has a guide on the bag.
When you first start feeding your kitten dry food it is a good idea to slowly incorporate it into wet food.
Just start out feeding him wet food and every day add a little more dry food until it is all dry. This way the cat will get used to it and you will notice if he starts choking or anything.
Or you can do it the cheap way and add a little water to the dry food and let it sit a few mins until the dry food is mushy. Both methods work well. The first also works if your cat eats too fast.
I found that my cats moved to adult food about 10-11 months. Some of the adult foods came in big chunks so I mushed it up for a while till they got used to chomping.
Watch out for any food that may be too rich or have lots of additives....it can upset his stomach. You will know if it's a problem from fluid like faeces.
I give my 2 furries a mix of dry and wet food. They both have different preferences. Try different things and I'm sure your moggie will let you know if he isn't happy
Thanks all Going to try starting him on some adult food soon
What I did for my kittys is, take some dry food and put it in a plastic bag, smash it up real nice. Id use bacon grease or hamburger grease, just a little, dont want to hurt them, mix that with a little bit of milk and then mix those two with the dry cat food, put it in the microwave for 15 seconds and mix it up. Another reason why me and my boyfriend did it this way is because one of our cats(they are sisters) is the runt of the litter. It was very easy to do, and they loved it. I know this has nothing to do with cat food but make sure if you're going to get your kitty fixed that they arent in heat when you do it, it really messes up the cat when you get them fixed and they are in heat, as a result one of my cats is fairly large(big tummy) and shes only two years old. Hope that helps!
