To help support first-time kitten foster parents, I'm teaming up with Royal Canin to offer Catology, a Kitten Care Webinar Series designed to provide foster parents with the education they need in order to care for the most vulnerable felines.
In the first webinar, Caring for Itty Bitty Bottle Babies, participants will learn:
How to set up space in your home for foster kittens
How to identify the age, sex, and weight of a young kitten
How to bottle feed, syringe feed, and provide nourishment for hard-to-feed kittens
How to provide bathroom assistance, grooming, and comfort to neonates
…and more!
The webinars will be streamed live on the official USworlds and Facebook of Royal Canin and Kitten Lady.
Royal Canin is also covering the cost of the first month of nutrition for all new kitten and cat fosters or adopters. To redeem, you must first purchase any Royal Canin kitten or cat food, visit www.royalcaninrewards.com and use code 20-11942. You will need to provide a copy of your kitten’s foster or adoption paperwork and a purchase receipt.

    • @Roseann Castro Obviously some time has passed but in a situation like that again, reach out to a shelter or online group. Kittens make people want to help naturally...they're just adorable like that.

    • @Ileana Ancuta I hope things turn out well. Sometimes kittens don't poop every day, especially if they are just rescued. It can take a bit of time for the formula to be taken through the body. Also, if they are very hungry they might be absorbing so much of the food that there isn't much waste yet. If it is more than a day, the kitten might be dehydrated or constipated, a vet should be consulted. It is always wise to take any rescued you find to the vet anyway, they will need to be assessed and have worming treatments.

      Lothar SoranLothar SoranMonth ago
    • @Lala Land Definitely, because you will learn a lot from watching the mother take care of her babies. She can teach you and you can watch the kittens grow, learning their developmental stages. She may not feed all the kittens, or the runt of the litter may need to be bottle fed anyway. When you feel more comfortable you can try raising kittens who are weaned, before moving onto the more challenging neo natals. You can also just foster the older ones to socialise them, there are many different options. Just remember not to get attached to them; the goal is to help them find good homes elsewhere. That part can be a bit tough emotionally, but it is all worth it.

  • Thank you so much for this whole channel and the series. We just recently applied to become a foster home for kitties in our area and are waiting on their response. Though I don't think anyone is ever truly 'prepared' for their first foster kittens or bottle babies, your encouragement has been paramount to our decision. Being an active TNR Caretaker and having always loved every aspect of cats I can't wait for our first foster babies should we get accepted! Kitten season, here we come!

    Jeanan DiasJeanan DiasMonth ago
  • This has been extremely helpful, thank you! One question for anyone who is reading and may know the answer... Do kittens get lice sometimes? There is something crawling all over the newborn kittens I rescued this week (their mama hadn’t come back for 24 hours so I felt I had to act quickly. I’ve been bottlefeeding them the formula mentioned here and they’ve been taking it well, but) as I was feeding them I noticed something very small, shiny, and dark brown crawling super fast around the kitten’s head and face. It might’ve been a flea but it also sort of looked like lice. (My kids got lice once from a daycare facility their cousin stayed in. It looked a little bit like this.) And either way, what should I do to treat such a young kitten for lice or fleas? They still have their umbilical cord so I don’t quite think they’re over a week old. Thanks in advance to anyone who knows the solution!

  • I have this about week old kitten and the other day its other sibling passed of starvation or sugar thing dropped so recently I've been bringing it In and bottle feeding or if I have to I will tube feed/have my mom do it bc my aunt said if I'm careful I could. Just to make sure it is healthy! Tell me if I'm doing anything wrong?

  • This is excellent. Some questions: how do you remove a breathing blockage? How do you do CPR on kittens? Is first aid different than with adult cats? I know how to CPR guinea pigs, adult cats and dogs, but not babies. Are first aid emergency skills such as reducing bleeding from a wound similar? Obviously you take them to a vet ASAP, but I was wondering if you have any emergency medical care instructional vids for those really desperate moments? I've seen your videos on hypothermia, which were spot on. I've learned a lot from you, and although I'm not fostering yet I would consider it. I'm very practical and level headed, so I'd like to learn about emergency procedures. Thank you! You work so hard, and seem so kind, and now you have Royal Canin backing. That's a huge progress hallmark.

  • I’ve been fostering kittens for a year or so but today I got my first super newborn (no more than 3 days!!) He was all by himself near to a river, super cold the poor thing! Now he’s safe, warm, well fed (I’m using a dropper to feed him and he latched perfectly to the glass “nipple”) sleepy (finally) and pooping perfectly. All thanks to you! I started fostering because of you and now I’m kinda the official foster mom in my area 💘 I’ve another litter in other room and they’re with their feral mom, I’m just supervising. Thank you so much, it was very intimidating at first, not just because they’re so fragile and tiny but because I have two cats and one of them doesn’t really like strangers but with a playpen and a little bit of organization I quickly realized it can be actually super easy and rewarding. Now I’m starting TNR campaigns too! You’re really helping to save lives around the globe (I’m from Mexico City). I’m so happy I met you.

  • I got furloughed back in April for a few months and picked up fostering after a few years of taking a break. I started with a new group that flies kittens out of North Carolina to Connecticut, sending up 10 kittens to their forever homes (and one that stayed with me). It's been a fantastic experience to foster again, especially with a rescue that gets cats adopted! One litter of 3 ALL went together! One was even found outside my workplace scrounging for food. I always encourage people to foster if they don't want the commitment of a life long pet, though with now 4 foster failures... Sometimes you make connections

    • first,take the kitten to the vet so you know that if the kitten have some disease . then give the kitten supplemental feeding with kitten formula using a bottle or syringe(attached to a nipple).weigh the kitten frequently so you can see if the kitten is gaining weight.

The girl working the register put aside a bottle and KMR for when he came in, and I stuck a note in with his order directing him to your videos. My shift ended before he came to pick up the supplies, but I hope we made his situation at least the tiniest bit easier.
