Do you have the mom as well? At five weeks old they should NOT be away from their mother yet.

That said, I've had to foster 5 week old kitten before b/c their mother died. They need wet food about every 3-4 hours and dry left out at all times. Which they may or may not eat too much of as of yet. Also be sure to clean their little faces off after they eat. They aren't the neatest little critters at that age, and it can lead to aggrevation and hair loss if the food dries on their noses.

Uhmm...cats generally need dry food...a totally wet diet everyday may get them sick. I usually give my cat wet food once in a while.

Hi Dorothy,

Let them eat kitten's dry food all day long & kitten's wet food once a day only. I always give them wet in the evenings.

ATB,
