At last nice firm sausage shaped poohs. We have just found what appears to be the purrfect diet for our two. "Pets at home" vet approved dry in chicken or salmon. This is gluton, wheat and dairy free with prebiotics plus all the other good things expected of a premium cat food. It costs £7.99 for 2Kgs (was on special when we bought it buy one get one free!) Even little one who is not very keen on dry eats this. We also feed Sainsburys kitten pouches in jelly which are also chicken and salmon.

We are trying to encourage them to eat three meals a day. Breakfast being a bowl of wet and a bowl of dry. Lunch if they ask is dry only. Tea when I get in from work is a seperate bowl of wet plus some more separate dry and the same goes for supper. The whole idea is that we will get them down to two meals a day with dry left available to graze on throughout the day

Both are growing well on this diet and little one who was very under weight has now caught up and is looking very good.

Hi is that you Ingrid ?

That's an interesting food to try if you've got a kitten or cat with a sensitive tummy. I'll certainly buy some in if I get a problem :wink:

Weaning stage is often a tricky one when you get a kitten that just refuses to eat what ever you put in front of them :?

I've been feeding mine Roya Canin Baby Cat 34 for ages but recently we had a fussy kitten. She just didn't like it :?

After a few weeks of mixing the biscuits with wet food and all kinds ways to encourage her to eat it was becoming a worry.
Then just on the off chance I tried her on Techni-Cal kitten and she LOVES it....HOORAY...one happy kitten and a sigh of relief from me :wink:

Congratulations. Even at 11 months, I still haven't managed to get Dolly to have more than the occasional solid poo. She and Daisy both prefer wet food and currently have Nature's Menu kitten food which is a pretty good one. They also have Orijen dry food which is down all day and which they graze at. I'm wondering about trying one of the sensitive tummy wet foods when I move them onto adult food.
