Taking care of orphaned kittens requires patience and dedication. These kittens need to be fed using a bottle, and they should only consume food formulated for kittens. You also need to help them urinate, defecate and clean them after.
Once your kitten is about 4 weeks old, you can start weaning it to IAMS Perfect Portions Kitten Premium Pate with Chicken. Here are the steps to follow when you wean your kitten:
Step 1 – Add little water to a shallow dish.
Step 2 – Mix IAMS Perfect Portions Kitten Premium Pate with Chicken to the water. Also, ensure that you keep a separate dish of freshwater next to the food bowl.
Step 3 – With every passing day, increase the amount of food and decrease the quantity of water until your kitten is eating soft food only.
Step 4 – We recommend you start feeding your kitten IAMS ProActive Health Healthy Kitten food along with the soft food and slowly increase the amount of solid food.
These steps can enable your kitten to easily transition from soft food to solid food.
