In this article we will talk about how to feed a British kitten so that the baby grows healthy and strong. Feeding kittens begins with the 3rd week of a kitten’s life. By this time, the kittens begin to grow milk teeth, and on the 5-6th day, this process is completed.
The first food that kittens give is:
– milk powder, diluted with boiled water
– human baby dry mix.
You need to start with 1 ml. 2-3 times a day, gradually increasing the dose. From this time on, you can add raw frozen beef and chicken to kittens.
Starting from 4 weeks of age, you can enter porridge and fish in the diet of kittens, then the food of British kittens will look like this: 2-3 times a day, milk or porridge and 2 times meat or fish, with the addition of one drop of fish oil for each kitty. Do not forget that the kittens would always have access to clean water.
How to feed a British kitten: a sample list of products
- porridge with milk, oatmeal, semolina, sometimes rice
- dry oatmeal, ground in a blender as an additive in minced meat
- low-fat dairy products (kefir, ryazhanka, children’s curds, sour cream)
- -1-2 times a week it is recommended to add to the diet of kittens raw or boiled egg yolk
- raw frozen, or chicken, and turkey (better lean brisket)
- raw meat or boiled rabbit meat, beef, cut into thin strips, ground beef, only your own cooking
- chicken livers, stomachs, hearts, necks, boiled
- boiled doctor sausage, baby sausages (can sometimes be given as a treat)
- give seafood carefully, may begin diarrhea in kittens.
Starting from 1.5 months, you need to give vitamins for kittens, and in the case of the British, these should be vitamins with a high calcium content, preference is better to give natural vitamins from Canina (Canina) and Gimpet.
If you decide to feed British kittens with industrial feed, then this should be exclusively premium cat food – Innova, Orijen, Acana. Before you make a choice in favor of a particular feed, check out the rating of cat food.
Not recommended products for feeding kittens:
- fish cats eat only in fairy tales, excessive consumption of fish can lead to metabolic disorders, beriberi and the development of urolithiasis in the cat;
- adult cats do not use milk in nature and can do very well without it;
- inexpensive colored dry food, can only harm the kitten, there is nothing natural there;
- It should also be remembered that products such as seaweed, carrots and liver darken the tone of the British blue color.
Meat and meat offal, which are given in raw form, must be frozen beforehand.
You can not feed the kitten only meat and fish, or only cereals. Fish should not be carried away at all, its excessive consumption leads to inflammatory diseases of the kidneys and urolithiasis. Castrated animals do not give fish at all.
Food should be slightly warm or room temperature. Do not give too hot or cold (from the refrigerator) food.
All food for a kitten is very finely minced, large and small bones are carefully removed. For an adult cat, food is cut into small pieces. Do not give big pieces!
Raw meat is given in its pure form, boiled meat or fish (boiled) can be mixed with vegetables, cereals and
Remember: a cat is a predator, and it is not obliged to eat borscht, pasta or cabbage salad. The cat has its own special diet, and you should take this into account when feeding your pet, and not try to accustom him to what we eat with you – this is harmful to cats and leads to various diseases.

Hello! A week ago, a small cat, a British breed, was brought home from the city. The kitten is still quite, and probably there is no 2 months. At first everything was fine, like I went, I drank milk. Then, on day 2 or 3, she developed severe diarrhea, liquid, and so it went on for a very long time. They stopped giving milk. She became sluggish, inactive, does not walk, only sleeps. Eats nothing. Reeling, as if she was dizzy. They tried to inject syringes with worms into the throat with a syringe. Then I washed it with shampoo, the next day I washed it again, only without shampoo. They thought maybe worms. She gave her fish 3 days ago, she ate well. And that’s all. THERE IS NOTHING TO EAT ANYTHING, FORCE GIVING IT COMES TO, AND THERE IS POMEN. TODAY, IT ALLOWED, LIE, ALL FLAME, EVEN CAN NOT STAND UP, ALWAYS WEAKLY MOW. Weak, in general, can not stand up on feet Just lies, as if dead, but often breathes. I do not know what to do anymore, my hands are completely falling ..: ‘(There is no possibility to go to the vet … HELP, PLEASE URGENT!

Hello! please tell me what to feed the 7 month old british? when I was first fed with natural food, then we decided to try ProPlan food, our cat used to it, and natural food became much less and less, ate almost only one dry food, with pates of the same company.

Hello. We want to take a kitten 4 months. In the nursery he is fed dry food Royal Canin. How to transfer to naturalku and whether it is necessary? Thank.
A naturalist is always better than dry food, but be prepared for problems: you need to constantly cook, cat may refuse to eat some foods, such as vegetables. If there is no one at home all day, you should not leave the bowl with food,
Olga, please tell me more. We decided to stay at the stern ready. I just don’t know whether to stay on Royal Kanin or transfer to better and more expensive feed, preferably not Russian-made. I considered Origen or Akana, but they have no canned food, and ours sometimes likes to eat them. To mix with other manufacturers as far as I understood is undesirable.
And yet, we plan to castrate it in the future, and Origen seems to be not very suitable for castrated ones. I do not know where to stop.

Good day! I really need help! 4 days ago I bought a British cat, she is almost 2 months old, she does not eat anything except milk and milk porridges. They gave minced meat, beef, and gave boiled water and boiling water, baby meat mash agusha, even bought dry food (soaked in milk) and whisk “wet” for kittens, even they do not eat. What to do?
Thank you very much for the information. Our koteiko looked like a British kitten, the milk replacer helped a lot, now we feed with royalo’s pate (smacks us already) and a little dry. Week accustomed to the toilet, thank God got used. Thanks again (from Zhirik too)
Good morning, Olga! Yesterday the kitten was brought home (without a week 3 months) British silver
Greetings to amateurs. Tell me such a question – yesterday our Zhirik was taken away, he was 1 month old (I took it so early, as the cat owners asked early, explaining that the cat cannot feed all 6s), and they fed him Fruto as a nanny (he was shocked ). They didn’t sleep the whole night, squeezed drinking water, tried to feed them with royalo food for the little ones (with pate) and ate little. I can’t imagine how to feed and generally how to teach such a little to the toilet and everything else. Tell me where to start.
With razvodchikami obviously not lucky, well at least not whiskey fed. Continue to give pate, only with a finger, and up to 2 months. need to feed milk substitutes. How to prepare a mixture, or dilute children’s human mixture, read here http: //
Ol and up to which age (scottish fold pussy) is now 2 months. Need to accurately give the jelly? The fact is that I’m not sure that she is counting the fold! Mom has a lop in her (seen when they took from the breeder) and dad in the photo is Scottish Straight.
Ol and another question, we breeder said that dairy products should be given a little differently from our (lop-eared) Buns ears stand up! It’s true. Very much Plush loves the milk and I’m afraid of giving (((THANK YOU!
High-quality Scottish folds rarely get ears, their ears are small, and fit tightly to the head (painstaking work of breeders), but there are some breeders who stick their ears with superglue to sell as folds … Since the breeder advises feeding them with milk, it means there is a chance. Give kefir 1% little by little.
Good day, Olga! My Plush (British Fold) will be 2 months on December 1st! Found your

Hello Olga! I have a British kitty 4
This may be from overeating, or she did not chew on food and swallowed the entire portion at once.
Olyushka, thank you so much for your site! We are without him as without paws. And we have a little problem. Or rather big … In general, our Plush imagines himself a vegetarian. Now he is 3 months old, he managed to get sick with his bag, he was still eating during the recovery period, and now he has been replaced as a child. Refuses to eat dry food (holistic), does not eat in its natural form
Be sure to give complex vitamins, and after a week or two, offer him meat again – frozen beef with blood, let’s hope the predator instinct wakes up in it.

Hello, I bought a British Fold kitten 3 days ago, he was 1.5 months old, everything would be fine if …. first time I went to the toilet with a normal stool, and then with blood and stool watery (but keeps sausage), 12 months, children food by Tyomya and agushi (meat, dairy didn’t eat), such a chair with blood goes on, yesterday in a day it went 3 times a day.
It is impossible to feed the cat with feed and naturalka at the same time, especially since you are still very small. If the kitten is not elevated body temperature, try feeding boiled chicken with rice, if the chair does not get better, then to the veterinary clinic.
Hello! Very interesting and informative site, Can you please tell me how much the British kitten should weigh at 8 weeks? Mom weighs 5 kg,. Dad 7.5 kg, is their first
There are no clear rules for kittens to weigh, as children do not have. Make sure the kitten eats the rate of their food, and everything will be ok.
