Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Transitioning kittens to new food
In about two weeks I\'ll be bringing TWO kittens home! They are currently in foster care and will come home with me once they\'ve been neutered. Very exciting!
I\'d love to hear any ideas about how to add the two kittens to the household and hopefully eventually get them on the same diet and feeding schedule as my kitty Lucy.
Lucy has severe food allergies and is restricted in what she can eat. She is allergic to all dry food as well as corn, eggs, tomato pomace, flax and flax seed, barley, and alfalfa.
Lucy primarily eats Natural Balance Indoor wet food with a quarter cup of Ziwi Peak venison (air-dried meat, looks like beef jerky) every evening. Other foods she is not allergic to include Evanger\'s Braised Chicken Dinner and California Natural Salmon and Sweet Potato.
The two male kittens (about 10 weeks old) are currently eating Taste of the Wild dry food. I\'m thinking that I will continue to feed them TOTW initially and slowly introduce the wet foods that Lucy eats. How long should I take to make the transition to an all wet diet? Also, how much do kittens really eat in your experience?
I just want Lucy and the kittens to be healthy and happy! Thanks!
