Group Description

A list for those doing cat rescue with orphaned kittens. Discussion is welcomed on bottle feeding, general care, specialized care for sick kitties, and other things related to raising orphaned kittens. This is not a forum for selling or placing kittens. This is an effort to bring together those who rescue kittens to share information and experiences.

For detailed information on how to bottle feed small kittens, please see the excellent Kitten Rescue handbook at
http://unitedpaws.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/kitten_rescue.pdf (print it out!)
(see a copy of this also in our group's Files section)
(I had nothing to do with this handbook, but refer many folks to it -- Send Kitten Rescue a dollar or two if you can to thank them!)

In emergency, with lethargic kittens -- Karo syrup (light) can be put on kittens' gums -- provides instantly absorbable energy with no digestion cost. But NEVER feed a cold kitten -- warm her up first!
