I tried scrambled egg this morning but she didnt eat it. I will try yoghurt, but can it be any kind of yoghurt? I have full fat greek yoghurt in the fridge but wonder if lactose would upset her stomachThey should all stsy together if possible. Mother cat may need some extra calcium if she is lethargic. Give her a dish of kitten formula daily or a tablespoon of yogurt or a scrambled egg.
Kittens can take up to 14 days to fully open their eyes, but if the eyes are crusty or goopy, clean them gently with a warm damp cloth but do not force them open.
Sneezing can mean colds. Watch for kittens getting upper respiratory infections. If they get sick they may need antibiotics.
Keep us posted!
But would giving the milk give them any diarrhea or make them poo instead of peeing only? If they start pooing before they are toilet trained I worry if that would make cleaning the kitten harder for mother cat. Also couple of them are starting to pee on their own. Although one of them used litter box the others pee in random places on the floor. The mother cat only pee and poo once a day in the evening and kitten hardly see her using the litterbox. So how do I initiate them to use the litterbox? Also I notice some gagging during sleep as if it is about to throw up. Is this anything of concern?
The kittens will already be pooing, and they will have done so since birth seeing as it is a natural bodily process. Mama cat will just have cleaned it up, the same as she has done with their pee. The milk may cause diarrhea, but there is no way to know for sure without trying it first.make them poo instead of peeing only
