Kitten feeding Questions
I've been Googling and searching for this answer for weeks and have finally given up.
I just got a new kitten a couple of weeks ago. The lady who was taking care of him said he was abandoned by his mother and was about four weeks old. That's not true at all. This kitten is much older than what would now be six weeks and if I had to guess (which I suppose I do) I would have to say he was nine weeks old. Like I said, though I don't know for sure, it's simply postulation.
At any rate I'm at a loss at how much I should be feeding him. I've been trying to get an idea based on what he eats each day, but he'll either wolfe down everything in his bowl or leave it completely until I throw it out. I've been keeping it under a half cup and trying to feed him twice a day, but I'm not sure if that's working too well. On the one hand he does seem very healthy but I feel bad when he eats all of his food and then goes looking for more before I think I should feed him again. I really would like to avoid overfeeding but then again, I'm also frigthened of starving him.
I would like to know how many times a day I should feed him and how big should his servings be? I really hope this hasn't been asked yet... since I haven't had luck finding results thus far...
