    Makes a change to hear about a kitten like this-normally it's the opposite problem that makes the headlines here! :001_smile:

    How much is he currently eating then? Considering his good appetite, I would be inclined to switch him over to a better wet food-done very gradually of course!

    Has he been wormed?

    I have posted a link to a very good list for you http://www.petforums.co.uk/cat-health-nutrition/112132-z-wet-food-cats.html it has been compiled by our own food guru hobbs.Have a read through and will give you a better idea what the differences are in the various foods available.If you are willing to order on line this will open up a much better range to choose from.When it comes to feeding ,kittens do not need specific "kitten food".There is very little difference so as long as you choose a high meat content food your kitten will get all it needs Just be careful that you choose a "complete" food and not a complimentary one..As for amounts ,as a rule of thumb kittens will rarely over eat so let yours have as much as it needs over many small meals as you can manage."2 pouches is really not enough I would expect a growing kitten to manage probably double that in a day.Good luck and just shout if you need help choosing a good quality food.

    I agree 2 pouches really isn't alot for a kitten, sounds like he needs more! :) Buffie has posted a great list of foods for you to have a peep at
