How Long Do Kittens Eat Kitten Food?

It is very important to know how much your kitten should be fed at one time. The following chart will help you determine this:

Infant kittens – 4 oz daily (1/4 cup) or 2# (1/2 cup) per week.

Kittens up to 8 weeks old – 1-3 ounces daily (1/8-1/4 cup). 3 months and older – 1-2 tablespoons daily.

Newborns, weanling kittens, and adult cats – ½ to 1 ounce of canned food mixed with a little warm water twice a day until eating solid foods for complete nutrition is achieved. Be careful not to overfeed! Do not use dry cat food as it can cause urinary blockages in young cats resulting in death from kidney failure or other complications such as choking, strangulation and aspiration pneumonia due to difficulty swallowing the small pieces of dry kibble that are often found in their stools after feeding them too many times a day for too long periods of time..
