How Often To Feed A Kitten 5 Weeks Old?

Q: My kittens are 5 weeks old, and I’m worried that they’re not eating enough. Why do cats eat a lot when they’re young? It can be a sign of illness or stress. What should I do?

A: Kittens’ small stomachs don’t handle large amounts of food very well at first. When you feed your kitten, start with tiny pieces so she doesn’t get full before she’s hungry again. You’ll find the right amount to give soon enough!
