And finally, we will summarize and clarify what the British kittens cannot be fed with. We strongly recommend:
1. Chicken and other bones - the kitten can choke and choke! In addition, the remaining bone fragments can injure the delicate feline gums and stomach!
2. River fish and fish, not cleared of bones.
3. Pork - parasites are possible in this meat!
4. Food "off the table" - in smoked products, sausages and other goodies for cats there is nothing useful!
5. Fatty dairy products - they are likely to cause pet diarrhea.
6. Cheap dry food - carefully read the composition! Would you eat what the producers laid in the budget fodder? Most likely no.
That's the whole simple "alphabet" of cat food! Take care of your kitten, and he will grow into a luxurious, sleek, healthy and affectionate animal.
Every cat owner should remember that your pet is a hundred percent predator. It is precisely these cats that are different from dogs - for thousands of years the domestication of dogs has become accustomed to eat the same food that the owner eats, but cats still need meat to grow and develop normally.
British kids in this regard are no exception. The basis of their diet should be meat. Feed the British cat is recommended beef products. This meat is well digested by the tender stomach of your furry pet.
It is best to give boiled meat, as raw ground beef may contain parasite larvae, dangerous not only for big horned cattle, but also for predators.
Proper diet for the British
To think about how to feed a British cat at home is worth it even before buying a pet. The representatives of this breed have a very whimsical appetite, while they require a lot of food every day, but they eat a little for one portion, as the little kittens have a stomach that is tiny. That is why, while the Briton is small, he will have to be fed often (5-6 times a day). Will you have this opportunity?
You can even feed a British baby around the clock. This is recommended even by veterinarians, so you should not worry that the baby will pereest - while he is small, all food goes into growth, and the cat will never eat more than its body requires.
Small Britons need and mineral nutrition. You can fill the need for vitamins with the help of cat pills or special feed, which you can buy in any veterinary clinic. The seller will give you additional advice on the collection of vitamins.
These things also need to know:
- it is not advisable to store cat food in the refrigerator - it should be served when it is at room temperature,
- one month old British kitten needs to be fed six times a day, from 6 months - three times a day, an adult pet can be fed twice a day,
- do not mix food dry food and meat products,
- The first 8 weeks of life babies feed on mother's milk, so you need to take a pet when it grows up and gradually wean it from breastfeeding.
Meals at monthly age
As a rule, at the age of one month, the feeding of British kittens with breast milk continues. But sometimes it happens that the baby is separated from the mother already at such an early age, then it is necessary to feed him the mixture.
It is desirable to make a smooth transition from breast milk to regular food, but you need to make it as smooth as possible.
To rebuild the body, it is best to combine food feed and milk mixture in the first days of transition. What kind of mixtures to feed, it is better to ask the breeder, as it is desirable to give the baby the same products during the entire transition period so as not to subject the British's stomach to additional stresses.
Smooth transition to solid food is carried out in several stages:
- at the age of 1 month, you need to feed your baby some milk products, but raw cow's milk can cause stomach problems, so use a better baby formula or baby milk porridge,
- it is best to start feeding the British cat with natural meat from milled boiled minced beef or even more tender veal,
- gradually add to the menu of the baby of the British semolina porridge or oatmeal or buckwheat porridge with milk,
- dairy products are better not to give the kitten up to 7 weeks
- at the end of the transition can be included in the diet cottage cheese, you can feed more yogurt,
- not superfluous will feed your pet boiled liver (beef or poultry),
Monthly kittens eat often, but a little. One portion should be 20-30 grams write, and in just one day should be up to 100 grams of food. The most important thing is to feed them regularly.
British menu in two months
At the age of two months, the kittens have finally switched to the usual cat food. In addition, they are at that age when they already walk well and begin to explore the vast world around them. It is very important to eat right during this period.. The reserve of energy for active movement and rapid growth your pet should receive from a full-fledged healthy diet.
You can feed a British kitten more often than before - seven or eight times a day. The kid spends a lot of time playing, so the energy is spent very actively.
The menu should include the following products:
- dairy and dairy products: cereal with milk, cottage cheese, yogurt,
- boiled meat (beef, veal, chicken, rabbit meat),
- cat food (special baby food),
- you can feed the kitten with egg yolk (only the yolk, white can be harmful),
- baby food and baby milk cereals.
It is important that the kitten always has a clean food bowl. It is necessary to wash it after each feeding. Also, clean and fresh water should always be nearby (it should be changed at least twice a day). You must feed the kitten, and he will drink it himself.
What to feed the British in three months?
The kitten is growing and its diet is changing, becoming more diverse. The owner should take care to add to the pet menu more variety of food.
In the diet of a three-month British kitten should be:
- fish products: it should be fillet, thoroughly cleaned of bones (it is better to take sea fish, there are much fewer bones in it),
- You can add dry food soaked in water or milk in milk (at this age - no more than once a day),
- even cats are predators, but at the age of three months they need to feed them with vegetable products, which are served boiled with chicken, turkey or beef,
- milk mixtures and cereals can be eliminated by replacing them with natural sour-milk products (kefir or yogurt) during the transition period, just feeding the baby with purchased products is not worth it.
At the age of three months, the kitten’s meals should be as frequent - at least 4 times a day, and the serving size can be increased.
Menu in four months
The baby is growing and is less like a tiny woolen ball. His body has already adapted to adult food.. Your pet can eat less, but the portions should be more.
At this stage of growth, dry food can be included in your pet’s menu in an amount not less than a quarter of the total. It is better to use specialized varieties of dry food, which contain the optimal balance of beneficial nutrients and trace elements.
You need to continue to feed your pet the same types of meat. For safety, it is recommended to boil it. Feed the British cat raw minced meat is not recommended (especially dangerous for veal). If you ventured to give the kitten raw meat, it is better to keep it frozen, and before you feed the pet, pour it over with boiling water.
Vegetables still have to be in the diet as an essential element. It is best to give them at lunchtime along with meat and rice porridge with milk. The rest of the milk can be excluded from the diet, since at this age the pet's organism has almost no need for dairy products.
You can give a kitten fermented milk products, because it makes the pet's hair more healthy, strong, silky and smooth.
Meals at age five
Time passed quickly, and a real aristocrat already lives in your house. Adult British, as a rule, are very capricious in matters of nutrition. Your pet already chooses what it is and what it does not have. Carefully watch what your pet likes most. But nevertheless, it is worth giving the pet the will to choose its own food - this way you can spoil it a lot. It is necessary to maintain a healthy diet.
The British have a really naughty stomach., which takes not any food. For example, milk can no longer be given, since it is very hard to digest in the stomach of an adult animal.
The choice of the owner
Then the owner can choose - continue to feed with natural meat or go to the purchase of food. If you decide to leave natural food, boiled meat should be its basis: beef, veal, chicken, turkey meat.
If in childhood the pets enjoyed eating vegetables and cereals with pleasure, you can leave them on the menu. If the predators did not want to eat it, then these products can be excluded and replaced with a special cat grass. Do not forget: the animal must need fiber for digesting a large amount of meat food. You can also feed your pet with special grass food.
If you decide to feed a British cat feed, choose only high-quality dry food, pelleted feed or even special cat food. Such foods are sold in veterinary pharmacies and pet stores. They are very useful and contain an optimal set of trace elements, because even some veterinary doctors recommend feeding their pets with feed.
Britons, as the owners of one of the most tender stomachs in the animal world, are forbidden to be fed with certain types of foods popular among other cats.
The most important rule that owners of British cats must remember: among the whole variety of meat products of the British you can not feed the pork! And among fish products can not feed your pets river fish - it is too bony.
The ban also smoked fish and meat. The fact is that in such products there is a lot of salt, and they are also too fat for the Britannian capricious stomach. Such food can harm the health of the pet digestive tract, even if it was an isolated case. Therefore, it should be observed that the baby does not steal anything from the table, and all the more it is impossible to feed him from his table.
Sweet can also be dangerous for your pet. Chocolate and any meal can be dangerous to the health of your pet.
British kitten feeding at one month old
As a rule, the kitten enters the house of the future owner after he is one month old. This is the age when the baby was only weaned from the mother and transferred to the use of adult food. Usually, experienced breeders, before giving the kitten, teach him to eat independently and lure him for several days with infant formula or liquid cereals to help the baby’s body reorganize.
The owner needs to consult with the breeder and find out how to feed a month-old British kitten and what products will be most nutritious for the baby and will not harm him. The first two or three days it is better to give the baby the same milk formulas that the breeder used for feeding.
- At this age, the kitten just learns to eat solid food and you can start feeding it very finely chopped or ground on boiled veal. A serving of meat at a time should be no more than twenty to thirty grams. Once or twice a day you can give your baby milk porridges, for example, oatmeal or semolina.
- Milk is a necessary food for little kittens. But store milk or milk purchased on the market can harm the baby’s not yet strengthened body. Therefore, it is best to feed a British kitten in 1 month of his life with infant formula, and cook porridge for him on it.
- At about the age of one and a half months, you can begin to feed the kitten with fermented milk products (cottage cheese or yogurt). Also, it will not be superfluous to introduce beef or chicken liver into the diet of babies, but only in boiled form.
Feed small British kittens that have reached one month of age should be five to six times a day. The daily intake of food should be about fifty to seventy grams.
Proper feeding of a two month old British kitten
Two months - this is exactly the age when the kitten becomes especially active, moving and begins to be interested in the world around it. The baby grows and spends most of his time in games, so he will need more food during this period to compensate for the loss of energy.
For a pet to grow up healthy, the amount of feeding should be increased to seven to eight times a day.
- In addition to milk porridges, cottage cheese and boiled meat, you can begin to enter into the baby's menu by-products and egg yolk (preferably quail).
- You can also begin to feed him cat canned food, intended for two-month kittens.
- Milk formula in this period of life of a small fluffy creation is still an important component of its diet, and it should always be accessible to the baby. There should be clean water in a separate clean bowl so that the kitten can drink whenever it wishes.
Feeding a kitten who has reached the age of three months
At three months, the furry baby grew noticeably and became more robust, and the owner during this period will significantly reduce the worries and troubles in the question: how can you feed a British kitten? Indeed, at this age in the menu of a small pet, you can enter more diverse and affordable products.
- It is advisable to add boiled chicken meat, eggs, boiled fillet of sea fish to the diet of three-month-old kittens and give ready-made dry food once a day.
- Dry granulated feed at first must be soaked in water or milk before feeding.

- As for milk or milk mixes, they can be gradually replaced by kefir or natural yogurt (without sugar). The frequency of feeding a kitten also needs to be reduced - to five or six times a day. But the portions should be increased to about forty to fifty grams per meal.
British kitten feeding at four months
The four-month British kitten is already beginning to turn from a small fluffy lump, resembling a plush toy, into a beautiful cat with an aristocratic character. Feeding a pet during this period of its life also has its own characteristics:
- First of all it concerns dry food. At this age, he should be at least a quarter of the total daily ration of the animal. The amount of food intake should be reduced to three to four times a day. Particularly nutritious and balanced should be dinner pets.
- It is advisable to include more meat and vegetables in the diet of kittens. Meat should be boiled. But, if the owner feeds the pet with raw meat (we do not recommend this), then it should be frozen beforehand and poured with boiling water before feeding.
- Drinking kitten milk should be reduced to a minimum, because at this age the British practically don’t need it. But dairy products, in particular cottage cheese and kefir, should be given to kittens at least once every two days, because thanks to them the pet will have more shiny and silky hair.
British feeding at 1 month
Any living thing after birth needs breast milk, and the British baby is no exception. A cat in the first month of life should be under the reliable care of mom-cats. Her milk contains all the components necessary for growth and development.
During such a period, it is important to provide the cat itself with proper nutrition so that all the necessary substances can flow into the staying milk, thanks to which the kitten will form a strong immunity.
If the nurse has some health problems, or for some reason the kitten cannot be under the care of a parent, owners of a fluffy domestic animal should develop a useful diet for the newborn. So, how to feed a British kitten in the first month of life:
- In pet stores you need to buy special milk for newborn kittens. In this product, the correct composition of the components is close to the mother's milk.

It has already increased significantly in size, its weight exceeds the original parameters by about three times. At this age, a special feed for British kittens of dry species is already boldly added to the diet. The number of feedings is reduced, and the dosage of servings increases.

During this period, the owner must decide on the manufacturer of cat food, giving preference to proven brands. On this issue, you can consult with a veterinarian, not forgetting to take into account personal observations of a fluffy pet.

We introduce homemade food in the diet kitten
Owners of cats of British breed are independently determined by the type of food for the animal. It is possible to feed the pet with canned food and dry food, created specifically for kittens, but in any case, the predatory nature of the animal needs meat, so this ingredient must be present in the daily diet.
The best kind of meat is beef. It should be given raw, pre-freezing in the refrigerating chamber for three days. Before feeding, the product is treated with boiling water, which allows you to destroy dangerous worms and other harmful microbes.
It is better to feed the kittens of the British Britons with ground beef, cooked on their own. Do not add salt and other spices that are unacceptable for feeding pedigreed cats in the finished composition. You can also give your baby finely divided raw product.
A large straight pet can independently absorb the meat of larger pieces, but to eliminate unnecessary problems, experts still recommend pre-cutting the meat to make it easier for the animal to absorb food.
Starting from 2 months of age, a Briton can be given beef liver boiled once a week. About 3-4 times a week boiled offal of a different type is added to the main menu. The portion should not exceed 100 g.
Kittens also need lean fish, preferably of marine origin. It can be served raw. Pre-product is frozen, boiled over, cleaned of bones and skins. Fish should be given to the Briton no more than 2 times a week.
Once a week in the diet of a fluffy family member must be present boiled chicken eggs, in particular the yolk, previously chopped. Serve this product in combination with canned food or porridge.
As for porridge:
- up to three months of a small kitten fed milk porridge, diluted with water, without sugar,
- from 6 months, porridge is cooked exclusively on water, without milk,
- this product is introduced into the diet 3-4 times a week,
- priority is oatmeal, semolina and rice porridge,
- You can give the finished dish in combination with meat ingredients or canned food for kittens.
Boiled vegetables should also be present in the diet of a domestic cat: cauliflower and carrot (good for the eyes). A drop of vegetable oil is added to the ground product. They can also be mixed with porridge and meat.
3-4 times a week, a British kitten must be given fermented milk products of a low fat content: kefir, cottage cheese, yogurt (naturalka), cream, kefir. Adult cats such food should not be more than 2 times a week. Be sure to follow the shelf life of store products. Do not feed a fluffy pet dairy products with expired and of dubious quality, which can cause serious poisoning and other adverse effects.
The diet of the British, based on natural products, is very useful and necessary for healthy growth and proper development. You can not feed the animal with food from your table, only separate cooking, without salt, spices and other additives! Do not allow overeating, the cat can get fat and get sick with chronic illnesses.
Dry and wet food for the British
A more simplified way of feeding British women is based on ready-made feeds. This option is great for owners who are not able to regularly prepare wholesome food to their pets. The main thing is to choose the right food and calculate the daily rate in accordance with the kitten's age.
Responsible manufacturers create quality products, having in its composition all the necessary for the British vitamin and mineral complexes. The assortment of such products presents a variety of compositions in dry and canned form. When choosing, be sure to read the manufacturer's recommendations, published on the packaging!
Which feed to choose, dry or wet, it's up to you! You can combine these two types in an approximate ratio of 50/50, 60/40 or 70/30%. If the British are fed only dry food, it is necessary to provide the animal with free access to clean drinking water.
Canned product is applied to a clean bowl in a strictly measured amount, with the expectation of one feeding. It is unacceptable to leave the food "for later", after each feeding the bowl of the animal is cleaned of the remnants of the product and washed thoroughly with clean water.
Tips experienced breeders:
- For favorable growth and development, combine dry and wet food. For breakfast and dinner, it is better to serve canned products, and during the day you can feed your pet with dry food.
- Even if you feed your cat with exclusively ready-made feeds, regularly add pieces of fresh meat to the standard diet.
- The best feed for the purebred British - premium class (for example, "Whiskas", "Hills"). Do not buy a budget version of the products, as these compounds are not enough elements for proper growth and development. After feeding on cheap food, there are often complications in terms of physical health. When using poor-quality products in a kitten, urolithiasis and other chronic illnesses can develop.
- If you intend to castrate an adult Briton, buy special food with the appropriate label. These products include a balanced complex of essential micronutrients, taking into account hormonal changes in the animal's body. Similar rules are followed for cats that have been sterilized.

And of course, on this issue, you should immediately consult with the owner of the nursery, in which the baby is purchased. The question of how to feed a British kitten, arises from the very first days of the fluffy crumbs in the house. It is good if in the nursery the child was already accustomed to some specific food. And it is not a fact that the current owners will have the opportunity to feed him just for them. And if the baby was taken very small, then he would have to act almost at random, guided only by general nutritional recommendations for age. Therefore, it is always better to know in advance what to feed a British kitten a month, two, three, six months and more.

Even the frequency of feeding changes only by the 3rd month. In the meantime, still should be 4-5 times a day.

Excellent options:

In general, the correct diet of the British kitten - a difficult thing. These purebred felines are very picky about their food. They can take and refuse to feed, which seemed to be accustomed. And here it is necessary to manage to "pass between Scylla and Charybdis" - since a change of feed can cause digestion disorder in a pet. Many veterinarians and breeders are confident that the correct diet of the British kitten is necessarily natural food. Who would argue, especially if it comes to really high-quality food:

This is the period when the pet can prompt the owner what kind of food he prefers. The owner should be attentive to the wishes of the cat and not try to force him to feed any food.
- Milk at this age is desirable to completely eliminate from the diet of the British, because it is already poorly digested by their digestive system. Instead of milk in a bowl of animals should always be fresh, boiled water.
- As for the rest of the food, if the owner prefers to feed the pet with natural food, at the heart of their daily menu there should be meat and once a week fish.

Foods that contain a lot of salt, spices, and vegetable fats, such as soups, mashed potatoes, or meatballs, are not suitable for feeding kittens and can cause stomach upset in babies.
It is also desirable, after the owner introduces a new product into the kitten’s menu, he needs to observe how the kitten feels after it is consumed. If the baby cannot go to the toilet or has diarrhea, this product should be immediately excluded from the kitten's diet.
To the question - what kind of food to feed a British kitten, dry or natural, there is no definite answer. It all depends on the personal preferences of the owner.
The British are extremely clean, so their plates should be washed daily, otherwise the cat will refuse to eat from it.
Cats of the British breed are prone to overeating and excess weight, so it is very important to accustom them from a young age to proper diet and in no case overfeed.
It is also necessary to additionally add vitamins to cats, especially calcium, so that they always remain healthy and active.
