What To Do When You Find a Stray Kitten

Here’s some advice from our wonderful cat lady on what to do if you find a baby kitten.

  • Keep the kitten warm…preferably with a hot water bottle.
  • The most important is to re-hydrate the kitten with Glucose powder…
    • Formula:
      • 1 cup Carnation Can milk
      • 2 Egg yolks
      • 1 tablespoon of Corn syrup.

There is no need to dilute the milk, newborns have an Enzime in them for digestion. Don’t feed adult cats with this formula. Feed the kitten every 2-3 hours with the formula, you can use a seringe to ease the feeding. Another member Allison Burnett provided another option, the use of Goats Milk in a can from Epicurean, she reared a kitten on that very successfully.
