A few hours ago, Alanda my youngest daughter just came out with her boyfriend when no more than five minutes later returned home. I thought that there were guests who came when I heard voices in the front yard along with the sound of screaming kittens. I didn’t expect that my daughter was coming.

While intending to see who came to visit at night, I also told my wife that I had to check where the loud baby cat’s voice came from. As it turned out when I opened the door, Alanda who was walking on the porch carrying a baby cat.

“It’s a pity for her, Daddy. Lying in the middle of the road without anyone with him there.” Alanda said. “I can’t bear to see it like that and I am very worried if she will be run over by a passing vehicle.”

“Geez…” I said, “Baby, please buy baby’s milk before you go.” I said begging Alanda, who from childhood I called Baby as the youngest daughter.

Really, I’ve never taken care of a kitten before. This baby hasn’t even opened his eyes.

Oh… Oh… Oh… The scream was very heartbreaking. She tried to find her mother’s milk in my palms and fingers.

I cupped the palm of my other hand to channel warmth and energy so she would be calm. Now she slept soundly in Susie’s bed which she had never occupied.

  1. My only suggestion is to keep the kitten away from any dogs or other cats that might see the kitten as an invader to their home. So far my relatives and I have adopted four kittens and had them fixed and taken care so they stay healthy.

  2. This happened to me once. The baby kitten even had the cord on it. I bought some baby formula,, and it was eating it. i tried to feed it every 2 hours at night, but when I checked on it one day later it had died. i was on medication and the last few hours of sleep I couldn’t wake up. Set an alarm for every 2 hours. it may have a chance if fed often.

    • You have a good experience about kittens. At least I will be more careful in caring for the baby. Susie was also present as a baby in my family, maybe two or three weeks old but at least she had seen and could drink milk and eat. Now, even though it’s not yet a year, Susie already has a boyfriend.

  3. Sorry Albert. I was having problems posting the comment because of CloudFlare that Virily is using. I kept on pushing post comment and then CloudFlare showed up with a notice to try again later which I did three or four times. I never knew that the comment would be posted that many times.

  4. Well all I have to add Albert is when feeding the kitten try it with a drop counter at first (just like when adding medication to liquid) or later with the smallest baby bottle with the smallest teat you can find. Yes give the milk at a warm temperature but not too hot. Test it on your arm first (just like for a baby). As for the constitution of the formula, I found on the web this recipe: 3 ounces of condensed milk, 3 ounces of water, 4 ounces of plain full-fat yogurt or cream and 3 large egg yolks (not the white of the eggs). Refrigerate. Do this formulation once a day and repeat daily until at least the kitten opens his eyes. Then you will have to see. Hope this helps you. You will be a great father or more appropriately in this case grandfather to this new addition to the family. Also sorry my avatar picture is of a wolf dog but it is a nice one, it won’t hurt the kitty cat.

    • O, my dear friend… Thank you for this detailed input.

      I am just a little confused about the formula. I thought she drank very little milk, so, if I made the mixture in large quantities at once, was it not too much and will be wasted?

      I can’t find a baby bottle with the smallest teat for her this time, hopefully, tomorrow. Does anyone sell it for baby kittens?

      I still haven’t decided to be her father or grandfather.

      • Oh God I do not know if kitten bottles are sold. The site where I got the info from specifically said to repeat the mixture every day. Maybe because the kitten is so small you can reduce the ingredients by half to start with so that you do not waste too much. Although I find it hard to believe that the formula will degrade if kept in the refrigerator. You will have to become a father again Albert and decide what you think is best. Sorry about that. I wish I was there to help you. But at least the kitty drank, that is a good start. It also seems that one of her eye is opening on one of your beautiful pictures on your next post. So I would assume that he or she is reaching 10 days old with this eye opening.

  8. First of all, keep it warm and safe. Make sure to feed it properly. If there is no baby formulas for kittens, give it warm milk mixed with cream and egg yolk. You need to feed it every three hours, in the first time. Kittens open their eyes within ten days of their lives, so you’ll be able to determine how old is your kitty.
