|If she is eating the food and seems to be thriving and growing, then it is fine. Five weeks is a little young to be fully weaned, but when they no longer have a mother around, they learn to eat solid food faster. It is good you are feeding her kitten brand. Let her eat as much as she wants - I don't know if 2 cans is enough or just right for her. Don't worry about her not eating dry yet. They don't have all their teeth until they are 6 wks. old and some don't eat dry even then. You can try to soften up some kitten kibble with water or milk in the future and offer it to her or you can buy something called "Baby Cat" made by Royal Cannin. It is tiny kibble and is real expensive.
I am fostering a 7-8 wk. old kitten right now who is capable of eating kibble but refuses. He screams and screams until I give him can food. And he is only getting a can and a half a day of the smaller kitten food cans!! I have tried kitten chow, baby cat, and science diet kitten with him, and he just refuses to eat. My goal is to have him eating kibble in the next week and a half so I can adopt him out. I don't think anyone is going to want a kitten who will only eat canned.
