Supplement food for kittens
« on: April 15, 2002, 05:46:21 PM »
I had two buck kittens a few weeks ago, the breeder gave me some egg food high protein supplement. The kittens are now ten weeks and I have just got another bag of the egg food. I would be right in that it would be fine to keep feeding them with it? There is also an older 22 month buck with them as well.

I don't undertand, this is a rat forum! Kittens should fine with the food until you run out. Rats on the other hand should not be fed really high protien foods for long as it can lead to problems such as tumors and overweightness.

Um... in the UK and by some people in the US, baby rats are called kittens.  ;D

They should be fine still eating the higher protein food for a few more weeks, but the older buck should not bet getting that much protein in his diet...

Cheers the info. I will try to see if I can get the old rat less interested in the egg food, a cunning plan may be required.
