    My starter crumbles only have 18% protein and I need to supplement. When can I start? How much do I offer? Do I need to offer grit too?

    Thanks very much!

    I would supplement. Take a few pounds of your crumble and add a cup of dry quality cat food ground up. Mix that in and it will increase the protein a lot.

    Make it Kitten food, for babies. It has a higher protein then cat food.
