One of my kittens, Bastian, has not been thriving. (See this thread: http://thecatsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=147630 in Health&Nutrition.) From what I was told he should be 9-10 weeks old, but the vet estimates more like 6 weeks. Bastian's body temp is low, and my vet suggested using a space heater to help keep him warm. Does anyone have any other suggestions for helping Bastian stay warm? If I got a heated cat bed, do you think he would use it? My vet did mention the words "Fading Kitten Syndrome" as something to be watchful for, and after reading about that online I am just terrified, and I want to make sure I'm not letting this little guy get too cold. Thanks for any ideas you might have!
