Newborn kitten care

The first few weeks of a baby kitten’s life is very critical. Without the mother to nurse and take care of it, the work is made all the more difficult. But, do not worry.

We have found an easy to follow video on how you can take care of an orphaned newborn kitten.

The owner of the video stated:

We are caring for orphaned newborn kittens for the very first week of their lives. Note that for the first few days after they are born, the kittens’ mouths are too small to handle even a kitten-formula bottle. That’s why we used a clean syringe; a clean eyedropper is another good option. We are feeding them a kitten formula that is commonly available in the U.S.; there are several brands on the international market which can be purchased in most countries either from a pet supply store or from a veterinary office.

By the end of week 1, the kittens’ mouths are big enough for a regular kitten formula bottle.

    Great info. I’ve raised hundreds. It’s hard work but so rewarding. Your heart gets broken sometimes though.
