    Hi guys

    I am new here. I recently got a kitten, shes doing great and the vet said she is looking amazing and healthy.

    As this is my first kitten, im a bit confused with the feeding.

    I feed her mostly wet food but as I work I have to leave some kibble out for her. My question is, how many pouches (they are 85g) should i be feeding her if she is having a bit of kibble throughout the day? and how much kibble should she have?

    Thanks

    Hello @Justyna2000 and welcome :)

    I'd say feed your kitten mostly wet food as it is healthier for her bladder and kidneys and other organs. A meal or two can be left in a timed auto-feeder when you are out. I have the C20 Cat Mate feeder (from Amazon) and it is reliable and my cats like using it.

    As to how much wet food - feed her as much as she wants. She has a lot of growing to do, and needs plenty of meat in her diet to build strong muscles.

    I don't personally feed my cats any dry food at all, but if you want to give your kitten some, I would put some pieces in a puzzle ball for her once a day, so that she has to work a bit to get at the kibble. Never free feed kibble though as it is far too high in carbs and fats. Measure out a portion according to the instructions on the packet and feed it as one feed (in the puzzle feeder0.
