Finally, after I lost my other kitten in Jan I was able to get another. She is older, around 14 weeks... but very healthy. She seems to really love her new home and loves to play alot. I was wondering.... the guy that had her before fed her any kind of hard food... not just one brand and said she eats anyhting. I have been keeping her on the same food... but should I be giving her soft food? I didnt ask the guy if he fed her soft food at all, and he has moved. I heard they can get bathroom problmes if you give them different food they are not use to. Thanks

All of mine get canned and dry food.

If you want to give her some soft food without upsetting her belly you can accomplish this by giving her very small portions at first and then gradually increasing the amount over about a week or two.

Hello. Mine gets soft and hard food. If you get good quality soft food (I use Wellness) and stick to one brand of food you shouldn't have any troubles if you introduce it the way Nern explained. In my opinion soft food in combination with hard food is the best. Soft food contains lots of water which helps the kidneys function properly. Hard food only means cats have to drink so much water (which they often don't) and this puts a lot of strain on the kidneys.

Blanche just gets dry food, only because I haven't found any wet food she will eat.

My mothers three cats all get a tablespoon of wet twice food a day. (When the dogs get fed)

I think it is really up to you and what you think would be best.
