  • I have s friend that has a kitten & she feeds it 3 times a day & I told her that is wrong that the furbaby should be fed every 2 to 3 hours, but she is feeding the kitten like a human being I keep telling her that's not right to feed her like a human. The problem is that she doesn't think that the kitten should eat that much because it will get fat, but told her she has to gain wait & so what she do puts the kitten on a scale that she uses to weigh herself, I told her that she has to take her to a Vet to get weigh She keeps the kitten in the bathroom to sleep & closes the door & doesn't feed her & doesn't leave any good or water for her & I told her she has to put water in her bowl & also leave food for the kitten I don't know what else I can do. Do you have any suggestions or do you have a kitten book

  • I love that you’re caring for kittens who need a momma. You may want to watch how a real momma kitty cleans her baby’s bottoms though. She GENTLY STROKES with her tongue to stimulate them to poo and pee, she DOESN’T rapidly jiggle and then stop. She licks until they stop doing their business and carefully cleans them so predators can’t smell them. Watching you quickly jiggle them with a tissue but not making sure they poo and then putting them down seemed like acting and not serious for a how-to video.

  • We took in a homeless cat about a month ago with the hopes of rehoming once quarantine was over. Turns out she was pregnant and we didn't even realize it until a few hours until she gave birth. Unfortunately 2 of the 3 have leg problems, one has normal front legs and the other has no normal legs. This one can't feed itself so we have had to bottle feed it, they're 4 days old. Getting into the routine of feeding it has been exhausting but were not going to give up. Do you have any tips for caring for cats with twisted and bent legs? And do you have any tips for getting enough sleep while feeding him every 2 hours?

  • I found two kittens I think they might be 2weeks old? The ears are unfolded. They still have blue eye. And they have incisors. These cats used to live in our Muncipal next to the Police Station, I know them because I always visit them. But one day mama cat disappeared and the police officers said that mama cat got ran over by a car. And she was dead. Idk what to do. I'm feeding them milk. I bought milk from the vet. And got my sisters old feeding bottle with a smallest nipple I can find(for human). But they keep meowingggg at my face! Even after feeding. Whats with them mm??

  • We just received a 14-21 day (I think) old kitten from our neighbors that found it on the side of a fence. They couldn’t care for it so we took it in. I haven’t had a cat since I was a little boy so your videos have helped me care for this fragile little tabby cat the last two days. Thanks! It’s been hard trying to feed it but I’m sure it’s just getting use to the syringe and nipples. Is it normal for them to try and walk and shake a lot when they do? It’s like its stabilizers are getting an exercise.

  • So, I pre-ordered your book on Amazon I’m really looking forward to it, but I am dealing with two brand new neonates. I know sometimes you’re not able to answer your comments and questions due to the nature of your work and your busy schedule, so if someone else sees it, and can’t answer it for me, please do! The kittens refuse to eat with their belly down in their head up. They want to stand on their hind legs with their front paws supported by my hand. Today, the little boy out of the two has gotten a little aggressive and is nursing on everything in sight. Thankfully it hasn’t been his sister that’s gotten nursed on. The problem is, he seems super frustrated and I really don’t know what to do about it. I have a little stuffed animal with a beating heart in the box with him and try to comfort him as much as possible, but he just keeps trying to nurse on my hands, neck, collar, and getting really frustrated with the bottle since it’s not mama. He definitely eats, I just think he’s super frustrated any suggestions as to how I can comfort him? Also, do you record how much they eat at each meal or just their weight Before and after? I’ve been checking their weight two times a day and recording how much they eat at each meal.

  • I rescued a kitten less than two days ago. He was only hours old. He is eating, peeing and he pooped only once so far (it was hard and yellowish-brownish) and he meows a lot, but what I'm concered about is that after that meow he produce "mmmm"-like sound. It's hard to get him to vet because all vets around are only for big animals and I'm concered if maybe something pains him.

  • Hi kitten lady, I've been watching your channel for a long time. I just want to say how amazing it is to see people helping pets like these and you are an inspiration AL around the world. I really wanna do this when I'm older. In 2017 my cat hade baby's and one of them wasn't eating, so I bottle fed her in till she could start to eat, I fell in love with her so I kept her and named her layla, unfortunately she died last year. Thanks to you I helped her survived and have a good live, so I just wanted to thank you for inspiring me. I also found a puppy in n box out on the street and took care of her. So thanks kitten lady 💕💕💜

  • Can someone pls answer my question, so she said that the kittens should be in an incubator for 0-3 weeks old, but sometimes she put them in a heat pad, so when they are 1-2 weeks old are we allowed to put them in a heat pad or are we supposed to wait until they are 3 weeks old

  • Hello, please let me know if you see this comment. 2 months ago, my cat gave birth to one kitten in a night. Next morning I’ve found her baby, and his mom didn’t have milk. The kitten’s body was cold, so I tried ti feed him (with cow milk). I knew it won’t survive, cose it isn’t matern milk. Then, at the last try..I saw the milk getting out of his nose. I knew he’ll die, and this happened. Now, my cat is going to give birth again. I know she won’t have milk. So how can I help her? What tipe of milk should I give to the babies?

  • I really need some help with this little boy I've been raising/nursing. He is about 3 weeks old and I believe he was found when he was about a week old. I've had him about 2 weeks and no matter what I do I cannot get him to poop. I have had to take him to the vet twice (about once a week) because he is so constipated but for some reason the vet and vet techs can get him to poop in a few minutes. I can't afford to keep taking him to the vet every week at $50 a pop. His poop is very solid and usually comes in large chunks. He is eating a kitten power formula from Petco.

  • What is that thing that you attach to your syringe to feed kittens? I can't seem to find them in my area or in any pet stores that I know of so I decided to find one online. It's really common here for kittens to be left or thrown away by people who doesn't want them around so I'm really inspired by you saving them that I want to do the same 😊 Hoping to get a reply by anyone who can help 😅
