|You can start kittens on adult food at 8 months. You have to trans them over 2 weeks. The first week you grad increase the new food, at the end of the first week, you should be at a 50/50 ratio. The second week, you grad decrease the old food.
Kittens have very sensative little systems. Sometimes they experience tummy upset/diarea, some do, some don't. If this happens, contact your vet, and stay at the ratio you are at, until it stops, or your vet tells you to do something different.
The first time I trans mine, I was barely started and they had diarea. I called my vet, she said keep them on the kitten food, and try again in a month. That time, I was more than 3/4 of the way, they got diarea again, this time, she said keep going.
