    Hi!
    I give my kitten wet Animonda Carny and Bozita Paté. I used to give her Smilla but she's gone off it now. For treats, I got her the Cosma Freeze-dried ones and she absolutely loves it, sorry, I meant LOVES IT (in all flavours). I just shake the tube and she comes running, purring and drooling from wherever she is.
    If you allow me to recommend some dry food for in-between-meals snack, Orijen is a favourite here at home. Applaws is good too but I can't stand the smell of it.

    I cheat with Eric lol I find cat treats quite expensive for what they are, after all most of the big brand ones are quite cheap and fatty so what I do is just put his Applaws dry food in the treat pot and shake that! He has Applaws left out all the time for him but he goes mental for it if it is in the treat pot!! It's a little more healthy and cheaper too!

    Our little gang love Dreamies you get get them from pets at home and i put them in the treat ball.
    Treat ball is very good as they have to play with it to get the treats.

    I give my kitty Smilla and Animonda Carny for wet food.

    Treat-wise, Kazuki LOVES these treats you get from Pets at Home called chicken and fish sandwiches, he also gets Beaphear malt bits and some natures menu treats.

    Is this the 6 week old kitten :eek:.Be very careful with treats ,your kitten is very young and could find treats too big.Do not change your kittens food for a while,stay with the food it has been fed by the so called"breeder".Whiskas is by no means the best food ,but if you change this right away you could have major problems.I do still hope that you can leave this kitten with its mum and littermates a bit longer.

    Oh dear didn't realise the kitty was only 6 weeks, so young! I agree with everything buffie said in her post, please don't try and change foods straight away, some kittens can get runny tums just from moving house!

    But you said this lady originally wanted you to take the kitten at 6 weeks in your post in "food recommendations". So you have a friend with 6 week old kittens and a friend with 8 week old kittens, and you have changed all the plans to take the 6 week kitten and instead take the 8 week old kitten (and her mum) within a day?

    It's good you have joined the forum, and are asking questions. I just wanted to warn you of the behavioural problems you may encounter in the future by rehoming a kitten too young. They can be very bitey and poorly socialised especially as the kittens siblings left god knows how long ago.

    No one is trying to be deliberately rude to you, we are just first and foremost interested in the welfare of the cats, not pandering to what might offend the poster or not. Please stick around though, the advice on this forum is impeccable.

    Im sure no one meant to be this way .. But are just concerned for your kitty.. Most breeders these days keep kittens with there mothers until twelve weeks this is to help with the socialisation manners habits etc.. All info the mother passes down that ensure you have a well balanced kitty.. :)

    Good luck with the kitty..
