What to do when you find a baby kitten
from Ursula Kilchenmann
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.
