What To Feed A Kitten That Lost Its Mother?

If a kitten has not been weaned from its mother, then the best thing to feed it is something good for both of them. Mothers with kittens produce milk high in protein and fat content. The little ones need this food because they do not have the ability to digest carbohydrates, which most people think are necessary for growth and development. Feeding a kitten a mixture of homemade cat or dog food (with added fresh vegetables) is what I recommend unless your vet tells you otherwise. This will give him all the nutrients he needs without filling him with additional calories that could lead to obesity at an early stage in his life when weight gain can be quite harmful for kittens with their rapid growth rate.
