A kitten can start eating dry food as early as 7 weeks old, though some experts recommend waiting until the first birthday.
What is a good food for a kitten? In general, it’s best to choose a high-quality cat food that your vet recommends and has verified on an expiration date. You may also want to look for products made from natural ingredients. Avoid buying discount brands or those on sale at pet stores; they often contain few nutrients and are full of fillers such as corn and rice. If you’re committed to feeding your kitten a raw diet, make sure you know what you’re getting into before giving them anything but fresh meaty bones — or nothing at all!
