Kittens should be fed 2 to 3 times a day, with at least one feeding in the early morning and late evening. Try not to feed them for more than 4 hours in any one period of time. If your cat is really hungry then it’s OK to give them more food in that time, but don’t try and get too much into their stomach because this can cause serious illness or even death from overeating. It’s best if you put out some dry cat food for them rather than giving them milk as they’re still growing and need extra calories to support their growth.
How often do kittens eat?
As stated above, kitten cats normally eat twice a day – once mid-morning and again before going off to sleep at night. When they are very young babies (up until about three months old) they may only need 1 meal per day but by about six months most will have grown bigger enough so that 2 meals per day should suffice. Some kittens grow quickly while others take longer, so if yours hasn’t started eating solid foods yet after just over a month then don’t worry too much about it! In general terms though younger kittens tend to be fussier when it comes to eating because there isn’t much nutrition available during the first few weeks of life anyway so there is less point being picky about what goes into their little tummies.
