Q: Is it okay that my kitten prefers my dogs' food to her own kitten food? I feed my dogs good food and they are healthy, but I also want her to be healthy. A: Pets always want some one else's food! I do NOT recommend allowing your kitten to eat dog food as her main diet. Dogs and cats have very different nutritional needs and therefore their diets are not interchangeable. Try finding another kitten food that she will love!
