Wow, your kitty is so young! First thing I'd ask, is to make sure your kitty is in good health before you decide to start her on raw. Get her first vaccinations, deworming, etc. done beforehand
and it will just make things a bit easier, at least give you some peace of mind when you know she's in excellent health to begin with. Starting raw feeding when you're not absolutely certain of her health can make you second guess a lot of things!
Since a kitten's immune system is still developing, so I'd suggest you keep feeding her wet food as much as she'll eat, maybe some dry kibble at night so she can eat whenever she's hungry. Start scheduled feedings if you can. If not, offering kibble 24/7 is ok for a very young kitty. At her age, she will eat a lot of food for several months! Buy wet food in different textures, brands, and proteins. Find her favorites
! This will be very important when you start raw feeding!
The reason I'm asking you to start her off on wet is because as while on wet food, you can feed her dry or
raw. However, once you feed raw, it's not
recommended to feed kibble at the same time or even a few hours apart from each other, which can be difficult because kittens require frequent feedings around the clock. Kibble is just easier to have on hand at nights or if you're away at work, school, etc. This website may help explain further: Feed Raw and Dry at the Same Time? - Feline Nutrition
Basically kibble is harder to digest and slows the digestive process if fed with raw together. You don't want raw food sitting in her stomach very long, because of the potential for bacteria to build up and cause a tummy ache. The guideline is 12 hours between kibble and raw, but I'd wait 24 hours to be safe. I'm a bit paranoid, lol. While she's eating wet and dry kibble only, you can do further research about raw and decide for yourself if you're really into commiting this for her. Note that there's different types of raw: ground raw, prey model raw (frankenprey) or whole prey (entire mouse, for example). You'd need to decide which one Stella will be on.
For weekends or times when you know you'll be around for the whole day, you can feed her a bit of raw, like the Instinct chicken for example. See how she does on it by offering her a few pellets. You might have to mix a bit of wet (her ultimate fave canned variety) and see how she takes in a tiny bit. If she's eating it, try increasing the raw portion while decreasing the wet and offer it to her again. When she's completely eating her raw without any wet, you've succeeded with the transition!
Some sites recommended for raw feeding are:

I'm so glad Stella has such a great owner who is looking for the best interest in nutrition! Keep us posted on your journey!
