  • I wonder why people say "baby kitten". Kitten are always babies. Do you also say "hot water heater"? If the water is already hot, there is no reason to heat it. Just an observation. lol...Your babies are adorable. I volunteered for a cat rescue group for a long time and still do TNR's.

  • 6 months ago, I was in a situation where I had rescued some kittens that needed help, then I lured their feral mum, Midnight, in. After they were weaned, mum did a GREAT job! Mum is still here. She's become quite happy. Now, her daughter has kittens. Her daughter, Spots, who is less feral than her mum, Midnight. Spots kittens are about 4 weeks old now, named "Scraps" and "Pieces". They, like Spots, are multi-coloured. Their colouring looks like they are made of pieces of scrap material, that was how they got their names.

  • This is the most helpful video online for taking care of kittens! Has helped me so many times already with the street kittens I have found and helped. Unfortunately many Greeks don't step up to help street cats or even throw away little kittens when their outdoor cat giving birth.. This video helped me get through the first few hours before getting each one to the vet for treatment and nursing ❤️🙏 thanx for posting it! 😻

  • I have a question. I was curious to know why there seems to be very different rules about kittens where I live, I live in Sweden and here you can't adopt a kitten under 12 weeks (maybe you could get them at 10 if you go to some shady person out in the countryside, but nowadays it's pretty well known that 12 weeks is the appropriate age) And that's maybe not the biggest difference, but you say that you also spay/neuter kittens at 8 weeks but in Sweden vets insist that the kittens reproductive organs haven't matured until they're around 6 moths so therefore they can't be neutered (although my kitten is five months and he just started peeing all over the house so we're getting him neutered early). I thought this was a very interesting difference and wanted to know if you, or anyone for that matter, knew anything about this. I mean if vets inte the US are neutering cats at 8 weeks that must mean they're able to do it somehow, or do cat's actually mature differently in different parts of the world???

  • Pls help me my kitten looks like 3 to 4 weeks but it doesnt , want to eat milk nor from bottle or plate ! But , it does eat can food , little amount thow , also it cant sleep for over 3 hours cosnecutively , especialy in the early evening to late eveing! I know i must guide its sleeping and eating scedulle but i cant force it or hear it cry in the box ! One other problem is that the mother's cat (that brought it home) other 3 kittens is 4 - weeks older than the little guy and they are wayyyy more active than him , and when he wakes up he is not active anough and he doesnt play just walking around and running ocasionaly in a state between wake and sleepy ,his eye ls are one time open and the next sec he closes them ! Im afraid is there something wrong with him or is it from his young age 3-4 weeks ? Also is it too bad he only eat can food and rise with watter , instead of milk?? And lastly i have trouble making him urinate after launch , even with my stimulation and his foster's mom , he taking too long to go to pee , he fall asleep and he wakes up after 2 hours then again and then he urinates , what can i do? Pls help me with some advises
