hey everyone, I have a question
My cat gave birth to 4 kittens and they’re about 2 weeks old now. 2 have
opened their eyes.
The problem is one of those 2 has only 1 eye opened and the other is still
shut, it doesn’t look swollen, it doesn’t seem to irritate him and I don’t
see any puss, but his eyelids look like they’re glued together or
something. Should I be worried??

Danielle Perkins says:

It says about 12 oz 4 x’s a day at abut 2 weeks. I’ve got one that I’ve had
since she was about 2 days old. Luckily she got her mom’s milk for the
first few days. But Most of when I read will tell you how many oz total per
day and then tell you to divide it between the feedings. So would I be
feeding her 12 oz per feeding or 12 oz total divided by 4. the kitten
bottles I have hold 2 oz. She usually drinks about 1/4 or a bit more per
feeding. I can’t imagine feeding her that whole bottle 6 times in one
feeding. So is this 12 oz total in one feeding because that just seems like
way too much. ?

Hi everyone. I have a question. My cat just gave birth to 3 kittens. I’m
wondering what food I can feed her to give her nutrients and help in milk
production for the babies. I don’t use commercial food. Also, is Pacific
Saury safe to give to my cat, especially when she’s breastfeeding her

I wish people would get their pets fixed unless they inteed on being a
professional breeder….July 25 2010 we found 4 little kittens in our
backyard…No evidence of a mama no where and they were out in the
open….They were about a week old or so….So here we are trying to save
these little guys..She makes it sound easy, but it takes lots of
time….Eliminate the fleas and get them eating and get their little house
in order…4 days still have not seen evidence of a mama cat…

willsburd says:

Arthur Marauder says:

Ah, ok .. here what i did… im a really bad asshole person.. i fed my
