As many of you now we had a tough start to mamma wanting to take care of her kittens. Well tomorrow these kittens will be 4 weeks old! ;c; So I figure I better try to wean them just incase mamma stops wanting to take care of them again. :-/ I now this will be a gradual process and I am sure that mamma cat will just be thrilled when it is all over.
Here are the things that I have to start weaning them with
KMR 2nd Step
Nutro Kitten wet food
Blue Buffalo Spa Selets Kitten dry food
My question is how exactly do I go about doing this. The KMR says to start out feeding them that mixed thin then increase the amount of powder to make it thicker once they start eating. So I thought I would do that then once they got the hang of that add some of the wet food little by little. Then adventualy add the dry food crushed small.
How long should this process take...about a week per step or is there some kind of rule of thumb?
I tried to give the kittens some of that KMR when mamma wasn't wanting to to take of them and they just spit it out. I am sure that one of these kittens will take right to eating other food very quick but I don't know about the other two.
Also is it time to put a tiny litter box in with them? I have been reading and a lot say 4 weeks old. I was thinking maybe and old baking pan so they can crawl into it.
Thanks everyone! I will post updated pics! :^:
