post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I rececieved an orphaned newborn on Mon. He must of only been 2-3 days old. He loves to eat!! I think I fed him too much and he developed runny poop. He now weighs 4oz. He gained a 1/2 oz overnight. I am now feeding him 1tsp.every 4 hours. Is this the correct amount and help his little butt settle down?
Thanks Ollies mom

What are you feeding him?
Has he been to the vet?
What are you feeding him with?

Can you post a picture or tell us more about his eyes/ears/behavior...

I do not know much about kittens. I hope that a more knowledgeable person responds.

There are some great websites that can give you advice. They are at the top of the forum.

Iam feeding him just born formula from a small bottle with a nipple. He sukkles very well. I have not taken him to the vet yet because I do not want to expose him to germs. But I have spoken to the vets office. His eyes are still closed and his ears are starting to come up. Also he has 2 very small canine teeth on the top. He purrs, moves around alot and seems to be healthy. I just wanted to know if I am doing everything I am suppose to do and doing it correctly.

Here is a very good link written by resident TCSers. It will help you age your kitten and has how-to's for every stage of your little one.

Good luck! And we'd love to see some pictures if you can!
