A kitten is very sensitive to the taste of food. If you feed your kitten too much, it can make him sick. Also, if he does not like his food, he will refuse to eat and may become dehydrated. It is best to start with small portions of Purina Kitten Chow® Formula Dry or Purina One™ Cat Food until your kitten gets used to eating out of the bowl (he should be able to lift his head off the floor). Then gradually increase his portion size over several days until all tastes are accepted!
