Please do not start her on kibble, they become kibble addicts and it is very hard to change them should you need to. Kibble is not better for their teeth, that was once thought.

I am surprised she doesn't like Kitten Wellness canned (well maybe not if she was eating the junk food that doesn't contain meat), that in my opinion is an excellent kitten food and have fed all my fosters that. I also feed them raw for their main source of food. Morning feedings, kitten wellness, afternoon and night feedings, raw. With the combination of the two, my foster kittens have developed such wonderful muscle mass that even a vet couldn't believe it. I have yet to see kittens that turn out as healthy as those that I have fostered, not that I am bragging, but want to be truthful.

Kittens get very hungry quickly, stick to the kitten Wellness canned, and raw if you decide, leave it out for a half of day and see if she will eat it, bet she will. Getting her started on quality food now will probably mean less vet bills later. Don't let her rule, you are her guardian.

Good luck.
