[Video] How to Bottle Feed an Orphaned Kitten

  • Kitten Drinking from a Bottle

    How cute is this?! This adorable little kitten is holding his own baby bottle, just like a hooman baby would do! Using both “hands” and feet to prop the bottle up and get some nice, warm milk in his tummy.  (This picture was submitted by one of our wonderful fans on Kitten Whisker’s Facebook page.)

    Bottle Feeding An Orphaned Kitten

    Have you ever found yourself needing to feed some orphaned kittens, and just not knowing how to go about it? Well, this video covers just about everything you need to know.

    As you’ll see in the video, it’s important to determine how much your kitten weighs, so you’ll know how much their stomach can hold. How you hold them is also important. Of course, you can always call your vet for help, should you need it.

    This video was made by the people over at Maddie’s Fund.org. As mentioned in the video, they have a great weight chart, plus lots of other info on their pdf. Check it out here.

    Here’s a little tip to help get them started on that bottle – smear a drop of the milk on the nipple so the kitten will smell and taste it. If necessary, gently pry the mouth open, and very carefully squeeze a drop or two into the kitty’s mouth. Just don’t force more than that, or the kitten may choke.

      I HATE watching this – that poor little thing NEEDS to push against something like they do when they are nursing. Letting her little arms flail about makes me CRAZY! Put your damn fingers up to allow her to do what is natural!

    3. I was thinking that too Linda Mason, the kitty needs to knead!
