|Whiskas and other brands of dry food that are found at the supermarket and big box stores are not good to feed These brands are cheap to buy but they also have cheap quality ingredients: corns, other grains, by products, fillers, etc They are the equivalent of Human junk foods: candy, cake, ice cream, big greasy hamburgers with extra large fries, etc
These are the ingredients in the Whiskas kitten: POULTRY BY-PRODUCT MEAL, CORN GLUTEN MEAL, SOYBEAN MEAL, BREWERS RICE, GROUND YELLOW CORN, GROUND WHEAT, ANIMAL FAT (PRESERVED WITH BHA AND CITRIC ACID), NATURAL CHICKEN AND TURKEY FLAVOR,.... Yuck! No wonder the kittens are gassy and have runny poops.
Read http://www.catinfo.org to learn what proper nutrition for cats is
Most canned foods are complete diets and can be fed as the main source of food Fancy Feast (the cans, not those Appetizer tray things) and Friskies are good inexpensive choices that are found in many types of stores.
Do you have any chain pet stores like Petco or Petsmart? You can find much beter quality food there, both dry and canned Look for a brand that is grain-free. Cats can't process grains.
To start the kittens on a healthy life, the way to go is 100% canned food Or, since the kittens used to live outside and ate rodents and stuff, you can feed a raw food diet You can buy commerical raw pet food or make your own raw food using a recipie (important so that your kittens get the right amount of nutrients for a healthy body) or doing the frankenprey model.
