How Much Should A 6 Week Old Kitten Eat?

Kittens are not able to process solids until they are approximately six weeks old, which means that their diet must be made up of kitten milk formula for the first six weeks. Their stomachs aren’t developed enough to handle solid food yet. It takes about seven days for a kitten’s kidneys and liver to mature enough so that they can begin processing solid food. They can then start eating foods like baby cereal, canned cat food or even moistened cat treats if you want them to eat something other than milk formulas. Once they have reached this stage, it is important that kittens do not switch from drinking milk formulas exclusively until they are at least eight months old because of the risks involved with doing so.
