My son found a kitten in a driveway the other day. He is he animal warden for our city. Of Course, as usual, I am always fostering the kittens that are to little to be adopted out. Well this will be the youngest yet. He is, I think about 3-5 days old. He is a strong little one. very squirmy. I think that is a good signHis eyes are closed and his ears are still down. I am feeding him KMR and pedialyte. He is getting better, only a few sucks at a time. we do this every 20-30 min. He is peeing and pooped a little. Is there any other tricks, that anyone knows to get this babe to eat better. I have not lost a kitten yet and I amnot going to lose this one. He is on a heating pad and is surrounded by stuffed animals. His meow is almost silent, the poor thing was crying so much. We put him with a nursing mom but she is all dried up. she has been nursing kittens for over 8 weeks now. her set and another set of 4 he found. We realized he wasn't getting anything so we started the KMR..he was not happy with that.Any advice to help will be greatly appreciated!!
