    No. Tuna does not contain the nutrients she needs. Why do you have a 3-4 week kitten? That’s way too young to be taken from her mother. Right now, her immune system is very weak and she’ll depend on antibodies supplied by her mother’s milk to protect her from infection and disease until her vaccinations can be done at 8-10 weeks old. You need to return her to her mother before she gets very sick and probably dies. If she’s an orphan, she needs to still be bottle fed with a special kitten formula available at pet stores and WalMart till about 6-7 weeks old. She can also have kitten food. She will also need to see a vet ASAP for a general checkover.

    Here’s a guide to raising orphaned kittens but if at all possible she needs to be returned to her mother or put with a nursing mother cat who can adopt and raise her. Your local shelter can help with that. In most places it is illegal to rehome kittens younger than 6 weeks old. If someone gave you this kitten from their cat’s litter, you need to turn them in.

    Back when we had 21 cats at one time (yes, we were stupid back then & never got our cats fixed), we would feed them tuna fish when all the catfood was gone, which was often!! It’s best to feed them the tuna in water rather than the tuna in oil, because the oil isn’t good for their tummies/digestive system.

    NOT a good idea.

    Kittens need the vitimams and ingredients that are found in Kitten food.

    Tuna fish is made for human consumption, not kittens.

    Sure, she will eat it, but dont be surprised if she ends up sick, as kittens have VERY sensitive stomachs, hense the Kitten food made for their systems.

    Kittens also cannot digest cows milk, so please do not give this to her/him either.
