You are here:



My mama cat had 4 kittens, they are about 4 weeks old. She has kept them hidden until we found them yesterday. Now she won't have anything to do with them. Do you think they are old enough for soft food? Or what should I do? Help

Thank you

yes after about 4 weeks they are ready to try some kitten food. Don't worry about your mother cat she is probably trying to train them not to be so dependant on her.

here is my web page about kitten care for your info :)

best wishes
