The transition to solid food is gradual. Kittens typically start around 4-6 weeks when they show interest in their mother's food.
Watch for signs like chewing, curiosity about your food, and reduced nursing frequency as indicators that kittens are ready for solids.
Start with wet or moistened kitten food. As they adapt, you can gradually introduce dry kibble to their diet.
The weaning process can take a few weeks. Be patient and adjust the amount and texture of solid food based on their progress.
Ensure balanced nutrition. Use specially formulated kitten food to meet their specific dietary needs during this critical stage.
Supervise meal times to monitor their eating habits and ensure they are adjusting well to solid food.
The transition should be gradual, allowing kittens to adapt at their own pace for a smooth switch to solid food.
