      Info is there a good recipe for kitten milk?

      Ok have rescued two newborn kittens out of the cold here. There were four but two died before I found them, these were almost gone but once I got them in and warm they are acting like normal newborns. Is there a safe recipe for kitten milk replacement? Any other tips are appreciated too.

      Who knows where mom is, I am guessing she left thinking they were gone. but anyhow they have a new mom now and they are warm.

      I am not sure about a homemade recipe, I can sort of remember watching my mother give them coffee creamer but I don't remember so don't try it . At Wal-Mart in the pet department they do sell little milk carton containers of replacement milk for new kittens only a about $1.50 I think. Sorry I could not be of me help.

      Hey Kim, I haven't heard of the coffee creamer thing, so I won't try LOL But thanks for trying I was thinking the milk replacement was more expensive, will have to try that out if no one comes up with anything else. Thanks again

      Hey, my sister works at a cat clinic, so I'll ask her. But you shouldn't give them regually milk or anything like that. It will make them sick

      Yeah I knew regular milk they couldn't digest, I was just wondering if there was anything else other than what you buy in the store or some recipe just as good. Thanks

      Most sites are saying to not make a replacement milk
      I found this information on this site:
      The Vet's Corner - Help for Orphaned Kittens - by Dr. Jill Richardson - October 2004 - Out of the Cage!, the E-Newsletter of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals
      The Internet provides many recipes for making your own kitten formula — do not use them. Some of the recipes contain ingredients that can be very harmful to a kitten's undeveloped digestive system.

      Yeah I saw that too then I saw another vet link that gave a recipe but by time you bought everything in it you could have bought the stuff LOL. So I thought I would just post and see if anyone had a recipe they had used before and it was fine. thanks

      I just spoke with my sister. She works for a vet that specializes in cats. She said if the kittens are 6 weeks or older, you can give them kitten food. If they are younger, you can go to any pet food store & buy a Kitten Food Replacement. You will have to bottle feed the kittens. This also means you will have to make them poop. The way you do that is to take a cotton ball, wet it with warm water & gently tap their behind repeatedly. (This simulates the motion of the mother licking them.) If they have already pooped on their own, then they are old enough for you to give them kitten food - preferably canned (the stinkier the better - that will attract them so they will eat.)

      Anyway, that is what my sister said & she has done this many times. She fosters kittens from the clinic all the time. I hope this helps you! Please let me know how the kitties are doing. Thanks!
