Too much food?
So I am transitioning my kittens to raw. Right now, I use Northwest Naturals (chicken, rabbit, and turkey), as well as a variety of wet food still. I think the chicken and rabbit with NW Naturals are more of a hit than the turkey, but they'll still eat it lol I plan to do DIY raw, but that probably won't be until they get a bit older.
My little kitten Loretta, who is 7 weeks (was rescued) and whom I've had for one week, really pigs out on this food. Like, to the point where you can really feel her tummy expanded to twice its size!. I put enough on her plate to where there is always food leftover after she eats, as I wanted to make sure she was getting enough, as she is rather skinny. I can feel her bones, (ribs and hips) but vet gave her a clean bill of health yesterday.
But, is this ok? I feed all my kittens right now 4 times a day, and all of them will eat until full. The other two I have are larger than Loretta, and their tummies are no where near as large on them when they finish eating. But she gets a huge pot belly. And she is RAVENOUS when she eats. Like, when she knows I have food she goes nuts, climbing up my leg to get it, and once I put it down she literally climbs into the plate to eat.
She is the sweetest little thing though. It won't let me attach a pic, but you can see her in my intro post, as I'm new here
