Feeding A KittenA kitten from nine to sixteen weeks of age needs at least four small meals a day. (About a level tablespoonful at a time.)

  • Breakfast: porridge or brown bread moistened with warm milk.

  • Lunch: some finely chopped raw or cooked meat, with a little vegetable, such as spinach, peas or carrots mashed in it.

  • Tea: a tablespoon of tinted food, of which there are several makes on the market.

  • Supper: can be a repeat of lunch, but very it with minced chicken, rabbit or fish.

Be very careful to remove all bones from the food, as these can damage your pet’s inside. A saucer of milk may be given once a day but not with the main meal.

A few drops of cod-liver or halibut oil in the food daily will ensure strong bones and teeth.
