How old do kittens have to be before I can feed them kitten food?

Answer #1

Once they have prominent teeth, then they can start eating it. I used to bottle feed all of my kittens before they were able to eat crunchy food :3

Answer #2

Thanks. These were born on the 18th last month. The mother had them out back behind our boathouse & I took her & the kittens in. They are starting to get around now.

Answer #3

the mother cat also starts carrying them around to the food bowl when they are ready to start eating solid foods because she is not tolerant any more with them trying to drink from her when their teeth come out

Answer #4

Thank you :)
