Hi Shelly. Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your baby! Seven weeks is way too young to be taking a bengal kitten from its mother! Bengals learn a lot of social skills from their mom in the last few weeks. But now that you have him, you have him. You definitely need to be feeding him a high-quality kitten food. Your vet has recommended a low-quality food. You'll have to go to your local pet store to find the high-quality kitten food.

Most kittens become stressed out when going to a new home and being taken away from their mom and siblings. Soft poop is a natural side-effect of that, along with trying to transition to a new food. At least Tika has seen a vet. Settling in can take some time and Tika is really a tiny boy at this point.

Would love to see a picture of him.

A lot of owners feed their kittens Royal Canin food for kittens. Wellness also has food for kittens. I'm not an expert on brands and if you read "what is the best food for kittens," everyone has an opinion and feeds their kittens something different. Just stay away from the grocery store brands. Go to a pet store. How much pumpkin did you add to the food? For a kitten, I'm guessing a very small amount -- 1/8 teaspoon maybe for a tiny kitten. Throwing up the pumpkin shows it was probably a little too much. Just a dab should do it -- and I'm not sure I'd feed it more than once a day. Tika is really, really tiny! I'm not sure he was completely weaned and ready to be taken away from his mom. Feed him small portions at least 6 to 7 times a day. You're basically taking care of an infant. He is a cutie pie.

He is so cute. We've always had good luck feeding our kittens and cats Wellness food. They seem to really like it and it is a good quality food. Blue Buffalo brand makes a lot of food too - but I've read very mixed reviews of it and some people say their cats often have diarrhea on it.
