My kitten’s belly is big and I give her a good amount of food at a time, but afterwards she wants more. She plays and behaves otherwise normal. Should I feed her more?

She is four weeks old and she is a stray kitten. Her body weight is 280 g.

    Not part of your question, but: you do massage her belly gently after feeding to help her pee and poop? And I would recommend you register your account, that makes for example editing your question easier (or even possible) and we can help you and the kitten better.

    You should also feed her special food for kittens. She is very young and must grow a lot, so she needs a special diet with all the vitamins and minerals that help her body grow. Please buy kitten food for 4 - 6 weeks old kittens at your local pet store or online.

    With kittens younger than weaning age (6-8 weeks), they require special care. I'd suggest consulting resources for care of neonatal kittens (for instance, Kitten Lady's website) to learn about the additional care needed beyond that for weaned kittens.
