Hi Guys I spoke to the breeder who we are getting our kittens from last night to arrange another visit and she said that the two we are having are getting on great. They are 5 weeks old now and she said the rest of the litter are eating solids as well now but our two aren't. Now the first thought I had was great, the longer they have Mum's milk the better. But now I am thinking what if she is weaning them too early. I thought the reason they stay with Mum until 8 weeks is because that's how long they need the milk for? Is the breeder forcing solids on them too young? Or do you wean and they still feed from Mum at 5 weeks??ut: Any thoughts from experienced breeders would be good. Not that I can do much about it anyway!!
