It's difficult finding an answer to this online - lots of articles on how much to feed a kitten don't actually give any specific answers. What I have found is quite inconsistent. My almost-12-week kitten is a bit underweight and not very interested in food. She had her first checkup just after I got her at 10 weeks and was only 750g - she's quarter Bengal so I think she ought to be on the larger side not the smaller side of normal. (The vet actually assumed she was 8 weeks so in the back of my head I do wonder whether we were misled about her age - but I don't think so.) She eats about 50g wet food and 20g of dry food (Royal Canin kitten in gravy and kibble) each day. Most sources tell me this is far too little. We do give her a couple of kitten treats and a tiny bit of chicken/tuna/beef/plain yoghurt if we're eating it, but not enough to spoil her appetite. The kibble is out all the time and I mash up about 10g of wet food at a time several times throughout the day. If I don't mash it she just licks off the gravy. She does seem excited about the mashed wet food when I put it out, but usually she only eats about 5g in one sitting and then goes back to it later. I have to put her in front of it to remind her it's there. I left about 10g wet food out last night for her because she ate particularly little yesterday, but she never went back to it after her first go at it, so most of it was still there this morning and went in the bin. I don't necessarily think she's full after 5g. I think she either forgets it's there or gets confused and thinks she has finished it, because I've noticed that after she has eaten half and walks away, if I scoop what's left into a small pile and immediately put her back in front it it, she finishes it and basically does eat the whole 10g in one sitting! It's like she can't find the second half of her food when she's pushed it all around the bowl eating the first half. Also she'll finish it if I literally pick bits up and hand feed her on the end of my finger. I'm happy to do this to try to make sure she's eating the right amount while she's developing - but how much should I be trying to get her to eat?! She's always hassling us for food when we're eating something meaty so she does have appetite. She doesn't share food with any other pets and it doesn't make a difference whether she is alone or someone is with her or what time of day it is. She's not nervous or distressed. She seems to have plenty of energy when she's hyper, and sleeps most of the day on our laps and all night but I think that's normal. She does do a funny behavioural thing of pawing at the ground near her food when she's done eating, which I know is trying to bury her food like she would her poo to cover her tracks. Probably not relevant but just thought I'd mention it. I really want to know exactly how much wet food and how much dry food a kitten her age (and 3 months, 4 months etc) should be eating - or how much a kitten should be eating according to the weight of the kitten would also work. I want make sure she gets plenty of nutrients so she's as big and strong as she's supposed to be, because she's going to be an outdoor cat and we do have foxes and other cats around my area. Ideally I'd have answers in grams but can convert from imperial measurements. Measurements by number of pouches/cans are not very helpful because these vary in size. Just a link to an article/guide that reliably sets this out would work? Thanks if anyone can help!
