    What is the best/quickest way to warm up kitten food?

    I know you're not supposed to give them it straight from the fridge but I can take the half pouch/rest of the tin out of the fridge an hour before I feed him and it still feels too cold to me.

    I obviously don't want to give him an upset stomach by giving it to him to cold or not warming it up correctly

    I wouldn't take it out that long before. I raw feed mine (weaning kittens included) and feed straight from the fridge. It won't do any harm, it's just that some don't like it that cold or won't eat it because they can't smell it properly.

    A good dash of hot water from a 'nearly' boiled kettle mixed into the food should warm it nicely.

    I use the microwave on a ten percent setting for food from the fridge, 30-40 seconds usually does the trick but it must be only 10 percent heat

    I second the splash of hot water from the kettle, it also gets more fluid into them which is never a bad thing.
