Feeding of kittens after weaning
The process of allowing a kitten’s digestive system to adapt to eating without nursing is called weaning, which begins when the kitten is 3 weeks old. At the beginning of weaning, liquid foods such as porridge can be mixed with milk, and then meat can be gradually added to the diet until the kitten is completely weaned at 8 weeks. Since the foods a kitten learns to eat will determine the way it eats as an adult, it is worth developing good eating habits by providing the kitten with a varied and balanced diet from the beginning.
