    Kitten bathing alternative

    Sorry, I thought they were still 5 weeks. If they're 7 weeks old they'll need more space than that. I wouldn't keepvthem in a cage at night either. Is there a room you can keep them in? Once they're feeling better and have got the hang of the litter box, you can let them roam the house again...

    Kitten bathing alternative

    Make sure you've cleaned wherever they've toileted with an enzyme spray. If it smells like urine/poo, they'll keep going there. It's also possible that they're messing when they're out of the cage because they forget where the litterbox is. Try keeping them in a smaller area. 2x2 metres is...

    Two New Kittens

    The grey one looks like a calico, so almost certainly a girl. Other one I'm not sure; the pic is a bit blurry

    2 week old bottle-fed runt fading fast

    Meals every 4 hours for a 126g kitten seems like a really long time. I'd give them proper feeds (not just snacks) at least every 2 hours.

    Kitten diarrhea

    I'm so sorry you're going through this. 11 bottle babies for one person is madness. I recently had just 5 sickly 3-week olds and I nearly cracked under the stress and sleep deprivation. You're an absolute hero. I hope that after this you can find a rescue to work with that treats you like a...

    Bottle feeding newborns: kittens vs puppies

    For anyone who has fostered very young kittens AND puppies, how would you compare the two? What is different between them? I have a little experience bottle/syringe feeding kittens, but I know absolutely nothing about dogs/puppies (100% cat person here). I was just asked to foster a one-day old...

    Cat is panting and pushing but no kittens

    Take her to the emergency vet immediately. Can you not sort out a payment plan afterwards?

    What are the chances of a black cat with blue eyes?

    I just have no idea what I'm talking about 😂 Thank you for the replies, everyone. I may have to read up a bit about cat colour genetics.

    What are the chances of a black cat with blue eyes?

    I've seen a few posts on this site from people with siamese cats. When their cat got very sick, their face turned grey. It was speculated that the cats got a fever and so their face heated up, causing the temperature-sensitive point to turn white. I'm probably talking nonsense. I may have a fever 😵

    What are the chances of a black cat with blue eyes?

    I'm asking this purely out of curiosity. I have three black foster kittens who are a little over 3 months old. Two of them have eyes that are changing to yellow/green. The third's eyes have only become a lighter blue. I know it's too soon to tell and it will probably change, but since she's up...

    Momma Cat is sleeping outside of nesting box/Litter training kitten

    He probably just doesn't like being picked up. He's teensy weensy and you're a scary giant 😹 How about naming him Squeak?

    I need help

    So sorry you're going through this. If it is low blood sugar, don't give up. When she has an episode, put a little glucose on her gums and keep her warm with a hot water bottle (just make sure she doesn't get overheated). You could try feeding her a bit more frequently to keep her blood sugar...

    I need help

    Low blood sugar can also be caused by the cold. Make sure the kittens are always snug and warm. When they're little they can't regulate their own temperature well.

    Which KMR to buy

    I've only used Royal Canin Babycat Milk with my foster babies, but it's always done the job well!
