    i did some more research and i have found royal canin, and it just so happens that the person we are getting the kitten from uses that brand also so we would buy it to start off with so the kitten doesn't get derriere. but i still have a few more questions.

    1- is royal canin a good brand of food
    2- if it is, is it best to buy it in cans or in the packets
    3- i heard that it isn't necessary to get the kitten version, is that true?
    4-do i need a mix of wet and dry food or is just wet food okay

    and anything els you know is great
    thanks

    Wet only. Plan to feed at least 5-6 meals a day to start, as much as kitten can eat at each meal.

    Royal Canin isn't a great brand, but any wet is better than kibble. You can start with the Royal Canin and once she's settled gradually add in better foods later.

    You can start with the kitten version if that's what the breeder is feeding, but it doesn't matter that much.

    I would feed cans rather than pouches. Better value, and cans are recyclable besides. But again, start with what the kitten is already eating.

    No kibble.

    No dry food ever. And don’t believe the rubbish vets tell you that it keeps their teeth clean.

    Read this website. It’s all you need to know about feeding best practice. Plus the advice you get on this forum from the experienced posters.
