The right diet for a kitten is one that offers variety, with ample amounts of high quality protein and fat. You should not feed your pet with only canned food from day one, but instead introduce fresh meats such as chicken or beef to help him become accustomed to eating meat. As he grows older you can also add in some vegetables and fruits which will provide extra vitamins and minerals. If possible it’s best to avoid feeding kittens table scraps or any other foods that they shouldn’t be eating since these tend to contain things like wheat, dairy products, etc… Not only do these offer little nutritional value but they could potentially harm your cat if ingested because of the way it affects their digestive system (see below).
As stated above kittens need an adequate amount of high quality protein in each meal so mix up the type of product you give them so there are no ingredients that he won’t eat. A good ratio would be 2% – 3% by weight based on total weight given per meal (if you’re unsure how much this would change then just multiply the weights by 1/3). This means for every pound of bodyweight given either try giving him 5-6 ounces or divide up his daily intake into 6 meals x 6oz portions = 30oz per day maximum; don’t worry about overfeeding though until at least 4 months old when he’ll be able to tell if there is too much food left because it may make him feel sick!
