Hi, I don't know if I'm posting this in the right section. I saw an ad for a kitten, I called the lady, she said her kittens are 9 weeks, litter box trained. I went to get the kitten. They were being kept in a cage, without their momma, no food or water in the cage. There was a litter box but all that was in it was a shovel full of dirt and rocks. I got the kitten I came for and took him home, after spending more time with him I believe he is only about 6 weeks old, at the most, and he hadn't been weaned at all. He feels very light and delicate, his tail is still the tiny short baby tail. He hadn't been given kibble, soft food, or water. He is eating the kibble and water I put out for him but he tries to nurse from my lips and also from our adult female cat. He seeks out human attention and is a real sweetheart. Is there anything I should be doing to help him through this? I though about getting a bottle and letting him wean off that but I don't think he would accept it at this age?
