Thank you; I really needed to know this information as I just became a
unexpected foster mom tonight and was wondering if I was feeding the baby

The already mixed kmr gave my 2 week old orphan kitten the runs so I had to
water it down a little and rushed them to the vet Thank God it was Just the
food change from mother milk to nothing at all and now to formula. ?

Honey Ripple says:

Your videos are really informative. Thanks a lot. Keep up the good work!?

Ayten Hulusi says:

I have 5 orphaned kittens and some has developed diarrhea. I have deduced
the amount I feed them. I believe they are about 3-4 weeks. I give them
water too because of the diarrhea. What else can I do? ?

amber gosden says:

+Missy Emrich Apparently you place them over your chest and should like a
normal baby and gently pat their back until they burp ?

Dane Smith says:

Great information. Wish I had seen this when I had an orphaned kitten. I
tried but unfortunately gave it up dallas animal control. I would hope that
they now have her up for adoption?

Kerryn Rudolph says:

Missy Emrich says:

I’ve just taken on bottle feeding 4 kittens. I knew to stimulate them after
feeding, but how do you burp a kitten? Thanks for the video.

thank you so much for the info, we really need it

Lynne Fridley says:

Just hold them upright and gently rub their back (don’t need to pat).
Essentially you are just give the bubbles they may have consumed time to
collect into a big enough bubble to expel up their esophagus and out.

Marie Farrell says:

Thank you so much! This was very well done. I’m worried that my 3 week old
kittens are not eating enough. They do eat a bit of kitten food from my
finger tips but they really have no interest in the bottle. I think maybe
it’s not warm enough. I like the burrito idea! I need to find a scale to
weigh them, but I’m guessing 10oz based on age. Thanks again!
