For the first few days after taking your kitten home it is advisable to feed the same food as was given by the breeder. After your kitten has settled in, you can change the diet if you wish to. Cats have very special nutritional needs, which are very difficult to meet with home cooked diets and can lead to deficiencies. When choosing a food, make sure you get a good quality complete food which will contain everything your kitten needs.
Small kittens (8 to 12 weeks old) need four meals per day, this can gradually be reduced to three and then two meals by the time they are six months old.
