Is kitten food ok for a tiny kitten even?
So office ceiling resuce kitty is refusing to drink the KMR and has been since day one. I have tried everything to get the kid to drink and he says no bueno. I went and bought some kitten formula canned food (Science Diet was all I could find at first, so bought that) and he dove in with all 4 feet and buried his face slurping away. I tried mixing some milk with it, NO, and then started mixing water with it and blending it a fairly runny consistency which was an ok, but he prefers it just plain it seems. Until I can get the little brat to take more water, he is going to have to deal with watery food though.
My question is, is it ok for him to survive on canned kitten food at this age or is this going to screw his health up? I'm not sure how old he is but he is walking around (full walk, not a crawl) and has his eyes open. At first he didn't seem to be able to focus very well, but now he does focus on things.
Other than that kitten seems to be doing well. He's staying in the house with my JRT and Daschund. My JRT is very protective of him and growls at the Daschund when he gets close to the kitty. Kitty sleeps in a crate at night and sleeps in my dog's tent, under a dog bed during the day. He plays a lot and would play with his toys even more, but my JRT steals them and hides them.
This is my dog's toy tent (look closely at the bottom of the white bed):
