Nemo's kittens

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone,

Sorry I haven't been updating about Nemo's kittens but my computer crashed and it is finally fixed. The kittens are doing great. They all weigh about a pound now. They are running around and fighting each other...it is hilarious to watch. I have good homes for all three of them. The girl is going to one house and a friend of mine wants the two boys.

Should I be starting to try the kittens on food soon? Will Nemo teach them how to use the litter box? I bought special kitten litter and have that in the closet with them.

Here are couple of pics from the other day.

If they are 5 weeks you can definatly start them on wet food/wet dry food and the litter box. What my grandmother did when she had a litter of kittens was put them in a small litter box and take their foot and scratch the litter with it. Usually they learned very fast how to use it. Good luck!

Awww, they are adorable!

Definitely introduce food and a litter box now. My foster kittens were all using the box at 4 weeks old and started eating around that time as well. Be sure that you use a non-clumping litter because they will most likely try to eat the litter at first!

If mom is nursing them you don't need to start on solid foods (soupy canned at first or moistened dry) till around 6 weeks old. Any younger and they won't really eat much and you'll drive yourself crazy for trying to force them.

And put a shallow litter box in the area they are kept in - a small cake pan will work good with clay litter.

Kittens will nurse up to 3 months old if mom allows it, so no rush in solid foods. By 7-8 weeks old they should be eating solids fairly well.
