How old is the kitten weaned

       A full moon is OK, but if you can, you’d better let her eat for three months, so your kitten will be healthier.

       There are four cats in my family. Only one cat who has eaten enough for three months is very healthy, and her physical quality is much better than the other three. Of course, there are certain breed factors in it. However, one of the cats bought from a cold-blooded person obviously has a serious lack of cover. Her teeth do not grow until she is six months old.

       So it would be better to eat more milk for a few months, of course, cat milk

       In order to adapt the kitten’s digestive system to eat food instead of suckling, the procedure is called weaning, which begins at the age of 3 weeks. At the beginning of weaning, you can eat liquid food mixed with milk, such as cereal porridge, and then gradually add meat to the diet until the kitten is completely weaned at 8 weeks. Since the food that kittens learn to eat will determine the way they eat in adulthood, it is worth providing the kittens with a diversified and balanced diet from the beginning and develop good eating habits.

       It’s a good idea to give your kitten a drop of human multivitamin syrup every day. From the beginning of weaning to at least six months, mix it in the diet and feed it to the kitten.

       Take the kitten away from the mother

       Do not remove the kitten from the female cat 6 weeks ago, except in special circumstances (e.g. for medical purposes). Ideally, wait until the kitten has been weaned for 8 weeks before leaving the female.

       Cats begin to grow teeth in the second week, eat solid food in the third week, and then gradually eat the same food as the female. Generally, they can be weaned in the sixth week.

       Cooked or minced meat can be added at the fourth week. Feed 5-6 times a day, but the amount should not be too much. If there is food left, it is too much, and it should be reduced next time. Don’t let the cat get into the habit of leftovers. After two months of age, they can be fed three or two times a day. At the age of 10 months, you can only feed cat food once or twice a day.

       The kitten can be milked in the sixth week. The young cats can eat cat food at 4 weeks old, and feed them slowly with warm water. At 10 weeks of age, it can be fed dry cat food, which can be freely fed and provided with clean drinking water.

       Feeding knowledge:

       1. Timing: feed at a fixed time every day to form a good eating habit.

       2. Ration: food intake increases with age. Generally, the amount of food eaten by kittens increases gradually after three or four months, and it keeps stable after more than eight months.

       3. Generally, about 2 months of the cat a day to eat more than 5, 6 times. Three months ago, kittens were fed four times a day. After six months of age, twice a day, it’s best to eat dry cat food, which is good for its teeth and gums.

       4. When the milk for kittens is not enough or there is no milk, you can drink special pet milk powder. When you are bigger, you can add some rice flour in the milk powder.

       5. Cats enter the adult stage when they are more than 12 months old. The body and digestive system of adult cats are basically mature and can digest and absorb nutrients better.

       First of all, weaning in about a month, can not be cut off at once, to gradually over 1. Gradually add kitten cat food, a small amount, bubble soft (kittens have no teeth), at this time do not limit the kitten feeding, etc. gradually increase the amount of cat food, the kitten can gradually reduce the number of times of feeding until weaned 2. If the cat can’t stop eating cat food, it can be forced to be cut off when the kitten can eat cat food normally, but it also needs several days to reduce the number of times artificially until it stops. 3. After weaning, pay close attention to the mother cat’s sexuality. If you throw milk or still bulge, you should take milk medicine, hot compress and other treatment methods, otherwise it is easy to have inflammation, milk sores and other problems If the kitten is weaned, if the stool abnormal medicine is adjusted in time, the kitten is very vulnerable at this time, because of indigestion, it may die. 5. Do not connive the kitten not to wean, which has a great impact on the normal physiological cycle of the female cat. After weaning, also pay attention not to let the kitten go to the breast, which will easily cause the female cat to have milk again Cats should not take a bath and catch cold. Most cats can be weaned naturally, but some cats will have some problems during weaning. Most of them can be avoided as mentioned above. If the problems still can not be solved, go to the hospital as soon as possible PS: yingzi’s supplement: at the beginning of weaning the kitten, the kitten is still greedy for the milk of the female cat, and is not willing to eat cat food. At this time, it is better to isolate the female cat, feed the kitten first, and then feed the female cat. If the mother cat is fed first, she will be weaned as soon as she is full. It is not easy to wean after chasing the kitten. In addition, the kittens are not willing to eat cat food at first, but they will soon learn from the big cats. Another is for kittens to use the rice basin is not too big, too large rice basin will be kitten as a toilet, in which urine or BB.

       2. If the female cat’s milk is insufficient, the kitten can be weaned in advance and eat the sheep milk powder for pets.

       3. After weaning, the owner can feed soft milk cake or baby cat food until three months, and change to dry cat food. After weaning, kittens can also be deworming and vaccinated.
