I have heard that kittens need to be fed 4 times a day. Is that a good guideline to follow? I work from 11am-8pm but my boyfriend works nights so I guess he can feed the kitten when he gets home....actually the kitten won't be alone for more than 2 hours a day!

I know my mom feeds her adult cats twice a day.....so is 4 good for a kitten?

I fed my kittens four times a day. You can leave dry food out it you wish, however. When the kitten is about 6-7 months, you could cut it to twice, or free feed, depending on whether he tends to be chubby or slim. I leave dry food out all the time for my adult cats. Don't leave canned food out too long, however, or it will spoil.

yeah Maleke probably depends on how old they are. I'm a newbie and whenever I hear kitten or even kitty I'm not sure if that means less than 12 week, 6 month old or less than a year?

I watched a 6 month old for a friend and he chowed down about 2 times a day, plus most dry cat food bag will have a recommended feeding in age and sometimes sizes (weight)

good luck with the new baby! :D

A dog or a cat at six or seven months old is like a 10-13 year old child, old enough to conceive, but way too young to be considered an adult. I consider a year to 14 months old a grown cat. Like dogs, it's closer to accurate to consider 12 years for the first year, and 5 years for every succeeding year-when comparing their age to human age. (as compared to 7 animal years to one human year.)

That's what my Giz does, except he usually does annoying little chirpy meows, wiggling his tail hopefully and murring at me when I come. He thinks it's a catastrophe if the food dish is empty and will wake me up in the middle of the night if he's hungry! Like I want to be woken up at 5am just to tromp downstairs to feed him lol
