No Time To Blog. Too Many Newborn Kittens to Bottle Feed

KmrThe top photo is of "Oliver".  I have been bottle feeding him for the last seven days.  He only weighed 12 ounces when we got him last Sunday and today he weighed in at whopping

1 pound and 2 ounces! 

I posted the KMR can because I thought it was "uncanny" how much Oliver looks like the kitten model!

Bottle feeding very young kittens is tricky business.  Oliver was about 2 weeks old when he came to us.  Most kittens begin to eat on their own between 4 and 6 weeks,some start a little sooner and some take a little longer. 

Here is a great article that I have found very helpful for feeding newborn kittens:

Little Peanut became lactose intolerant.  He was vomiting and we brought him to the emergency vet since he was so small.  It was also discovered that his urinary tract was too narrow.  He is living with the shelter's vet.  He is six weeks old now and doing well.  He's eating on his own and the urinary tract issue seems to be resolving :)  I worry about him, but know that his living with the vet is the BEST place for him!
