If you've rescued a sick kitten, please work with a veterinarian to assess and treat! Every kitten is different, and it's important to work with a vet to know what your specific kitten needs. In this video, you'll see how simple supportive care measures like subcutaneous fluids, B12, a heat source, antibiotics, and proper nutrition can save the life of a kitten. Jimmy was starved and emaciated when he arrived, but within days, he was on track to be a healthy and happy young cat!

    • jimmy reminds me of apple and her brother (crabapple) and chickpea for some reason. what about you? maybe it’s because of the fur color/pattern?

  • We have an Oreo in our home. She was brought here by her Brother that came here looking for food. When we saw the little guy in our backyard I put food and water out. We called him Ghost because he was here and gone like a Ghost. After a couple of days he brought his Sister with him. Ghost was small, but his Sister was tiny. Every step Ghost took he would turn and call his Sister. He lead her right to the food and water. He then let Her eat and drink, before He touched anything. We built them a heated shelter on our patio. One of us would sit at the door, and after a number of days of leaving our patio door open enough for them to fit through. Oreo, our little Cookie came in and wondered around. All the while She would call Her Brother to come in. After about 30 minutes Ghost ran in the door to be with His Sister. They have never asked to go out. They have never tried to get out. They do like to sit at the screen to look out, but when I open the screen they will not return to the door or window untill that screen is shut. So it seems our Ghost and Little Cookie named Oreo want to stay.

  • We found 3 kittens in our shed. My husband had closed the shed Saturday night and Wednesday morning I opened it again and immediately could hear them screaming. 😭 I burst into tears throwing things out of the shed to get to them. We tried for hours to let mom come back but feared they would die if we didn't step in. We guessed they were about a week to 10 days old. I have no idea how they lived days without their mom?!? Fast forward 3 weeks and they are healthy and thriving - solely thanks to the advice given here on this channel!!! I binge watched so many videos of yours. Thank you!!! 💕😻
