Stacie, I'd keep him on the same diet he ate at the breeders' for a few weeks at least. That said, I don't think it would hurt to try a TINY bit of meat....a small bite of cooked, cooled plain chicken breast...and see how he likes it. Keeping the food the same when a new kitten arrives to his new home is every bit as important as keeping them in "quarantine" (separated from your other kitties for several weeks so he can properly bond to you, and not to them). Changing or adding a new food right now will almost guarantee diarrhea which can be life threatening in a kitten. When he is acclimated to you, your house and the other cats after quarantine, then you can gradually and slowly change over to a new diet, including raw.
Lakota may not eat much the first few days he is home. He just arrived yesterday, and everything is all very new to him. If he is eating any of the food he is used to and drinking water, then I would not rock the boat Keep an eye on his poops to check they are not soft or runny and that he is peeing.
Yes, don't try a different wet food just yet. He's pretty young...9 weeks, correct?
