Fred would drink from a bottle all his life if he could get one. If I brought a bottle baby home, he had to supervise the bottle preparation and test it to be sure it was fit for the baby to have. Then if there was any left after the baby had his fill, he would finish it off. He would clean and cuddle the baby just like a good surrogate mom would do. I never had to clean a little kitty bum. He was such a good papa kitty.
