Uhhh pictures will follow soon in the pictures thread They're gonna be little hell raises I can tell already

What - you can't grow 2 more arms to go with the extra eyes that you'll need to grow in your head to keep up with the wee little beasties?

Oh yeah- i learned how to do that a few years ago-you just bundle two up at a time...get the bottles in their mouths and kinda hold them in place - it's kinda hard to explaine....but it definitely works!!!! Especially for those early morning feedings

ok here's what you do - kinda hard to explaine over the net- i'll try to see if i can get a picture so you'll know what i'm talking about. Take one kitten and wrap it up snuggly into a blankie....then do the same with the other and put them in a blanket together so they're all snuggly but can't get away. then hold them under your arm (but do not tip them over on their tummies- they need to nurse kind of flat) hold them in place and in your other hand take one bottle- put it in one kittens mouth then prop it up against eithor a table/your chest at a 45degree angle- then do the same with the other kitties- once they both start to suckle hold both bottles in place with your hand and voila two kitties nursing at once!!! Seriously cuts down on your late night feeding time!!! Try it!!

Need to be able to feed more than two at a time huh?

Have you ever seen those crazy cow halloween costumes? the ones with the fake udder and teats.

It's too bad someone hasn't invented some sort of puppy and kitten feeder/bottle holder. Some sort of soft fuzzy/furry pillowed that you could push the bottle nipples though, and remove when the babies are done. It would be great for large litters or people that have to care for multiple litters.

I had one litter of bottle babies back when I worked at the shelter. The guy I worked with came up with a solution to not being able to feed more than one at a time (I had 8). We went out and bought 8 bottles. He took a smallish box and cut 8 holes... 4 on each side. He angled the holes so that he could stick the bottles in the holes and the nipples would come out at kind of a downward angle for easy access. Put 4 kittens on each side and it worked GREAT! I wish I could remember the exact details and wish I had a picture or had kept it around. It was awesome.

This brought a smile to my face almost four years ago I took in a litter of kittens dumped-was 6 but by two weks old 3 had died(6 screaming kittens was very loud!!!-especially since it was my first time hand raising). at about 3 weeks old shelby decided she MUST EAT NOW not after her brother so as a joke i gave her a bottle and she started to nurse laying half on top of it..since then she had to be first or have bottle passed before her two brothers. she drank so much more then her borthers but so little now ! I saw after i finsished raising them a snuggle kittie with a pouch you can put bottle in-smart idea for those hard to please(im sure the interaction of being held does them wonders of good tho)
