    What are your recommendations for kittens as far as dry versus can also how frequently should they be fed ? Its controversial as far as adult cats twice daily and kittens 3 to 4 times daily this is what I have always been told I recently got 2 kittens and I was told to get theme adult food because the kitten food had too much protein. all I would just like some suggestions or opinions I was told that can food can cause diarrhea and I have been battling back and forth with that with both of the kittens any additional information would be helpful thanks
