Until around four weeks of age, kittens get all their nutrition from their mother's milk. When the kittens reach 4 to 6 weeks of age, they will begin to eat very soft solid foods.

The best kitten foods are the ones with a very high meat content (labelled as Chicken, Turkey, Tuna, etc.) as the FIRST ingredient with no grains, wheat, or corn. Foods that are free of grains, corns, and wheat gluten are highly recommended as these are cheap "filler" that bulk up foods - but have no nutritional value for your kitten. Wet food with these specifications are much easier to find than in dry food, and much easier to mix and MASH up with extra water or formulated kitten milk which helps with the weaning transition for very young kittens.

Kittens and cats are strict carnivores. They get all their nutritional needs from meat. Kittens in particular, need a lot of Protein and Fat in order to grow and develop in a healthy manner. Kittens need twice as much Protein as an adult cat does, so don't be surprised if you are feeding your kitten much more than you would an adult cat. Also, kittens have small stomachs, so the best method of feeding is "little and often", as often as four to six times a day for very young kittens. Older kittens (usually around nine months) can be fed a little more and have their meals three or four times a day.

For high-quality Cat food there is: Wellness, Eagle Pack, Blue Buffalo, Orijen, Bozita (the canned stuff is 90+% meat and can be bought from, Applaws (70+% meat and comes in both tinned and dry), HiLife (60% meat), to name a few.

No, a kitten should not eat waffles. Kittens are very curious creatures, and learn what is good to eat from their mother. This behaviour is the same if you, the owner, is eating something; but just because a kitten wants the food, doesn't mean it is good for him or her. Waffles are full of sugar or salt, and other preservatives that could be harmful to a kitten. The best food for a kitten is a high meat content cat food, as that will have all the essential ingredients a kitten needs.
