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.
