Cats/Kitten not eating


I have a 10 week old female kitten that will not eat wet/solid food. She is eating
kitten milk substitute, Ensure and mom"s milk. The three litters mates are eating
and bigger than the non-eater. I mixed wet food with milk but she would not
eat. So far the Ensure has saved her. How can I get her to eat?? Thanks

Cats wean between 8 and 12 weeks of age and some are quicker at picking up the solid food habit.

Please see my page about how to wean your kitten off of his milk and onto solid food.


best wishes Kate
