Thank you, that helps a lot.Do you see mom nursing the kittens a few times a day? They are underweight for 4 weeks old. They should weigh about one pound, so they clearly are not getting enough food from mom.
Can you get a can of evaporated milk and mix it with an egg yolk, a sprinkle of sugar and a sprinkle of salt?
This mixture can be syringe fed to the kittens several times a day if you cannot afford a $10 can of powdered PetAg kitten formula from Walmart.
Usually the kittens will take it well once they realize it’s good stuff.
I’m so sorry you are having a tough time, and that you lost a kitten today and another is fading. See if you can get some nutrition into this kitten asap. Kittens cannot have cow’s milk because they cannot digest lactose.
I hope you’ll be able to supplement all the kittens so they do not get weaker.
Keep us posted! G gerard jones
I'm in northern rural maine with only 1 store local, they don't have anything, Walmart is 30 miles away, I usually just use amazon.
I'm sure the local store has evap milk and egg yolk sounds like good protein.
Mum seemed to be feeding the other 3, she only gave up on the weak one, nature is cruel.
