I would like to try this for Goldie's kittens as they need the extra nutrition - but WHERE can you find canned got milk? Never heard of it!

I would first try a health food store or a store that sells organic foods.

Check a large grocery store for canned goat's milk. All the ones in this area sell it with the canned and condensed milk.

You can also subsitute evaporated milk for goats milk in case you can't find it.

How many servings (approx.) in each batch?

Serving size/amount?

Would a 1 y.o. male derive any benefit from this?

No not really, I saw the pictures of babies and they all seem perfect. Kitten glop is meant to ensure the aditional calories that "kittens and lactating queens" might need either for growth or for the replacement of needed nutrition when nursing kittens.

First time cat owner (kitten 9 weeks). I've just had my kitten for 2 weeks. Took her to the Vet for 1st shots and she only weighed 1 1/2 lbs. He put her on vitamins. I just copied the Kitten Glop recipe, but how do I get her to eat it. She was already eating dried food (Iams Kitten) when I got her from the breeder. I've tried to get her to eat moist food to help fatten her up, but she just turns her nose up at it. I leave her dried food out all the time. Should I remove that bowl to get her to eat something else? - Did I mention I've never had a cat before? Also, the other questions I was going to ask today was could she be constipated? and I'm thinking this has to do with her diet of only dried food. The only other thing she will eat is treats. Not to get too graphic but it looks more like rabbit pellets instead of what you would expect. It looked like what I expected the first day or 2 - but has changed since? Any advice would be appreciated.

I had some sickly young kits that I fostered for a while and one thing that helped them a lot was eating good old baby food. The chicken - and turkey, etc were favorites. I hope you make out well with your young one. Let us know!

Thanks for the baby food idea. Yesterday I got some Mothers Replacement Milk and she loves that. I'm only giving it to her in the am and only about 4 Tlb because I don't want her to stop drinking her water and just be dependent on milk. I also got Nurti-cal and she really didn't like that but I thought I'd give her a tiny bit each day and try to get her used to it. I also tried another flavor of kitten food by Science Diet - still no go on that. I'll get some baby food today and see if that works. Thanks again.

I think you will find that she will eat the baby food. I felt foolish buying it in the store given my age and all, and all meat ones at that - but what the heck! The replacement milk is a good idea - she will come around. After she tries the baby food for a few days, slowly mix a little of the dry kitten chow with it.......

Before you know it - things will be CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP!

That's cute. I didn't think of how it would look when I bought baby food. I'm old enough to be a Grandmother, I'm not yet, but old enough. Maybe I should put a pillow under my coat to really give them a start!! I'm off to buy baby food. I'll let you know how it goes with my baby kitten! Thanks again.

Thanks for the suggestions. She loves the baby food, Chicken & Gravy. I mix it with her Mothers Replacement Milk and she really makes a pig of herself. She is still eating her dried food too. I know she has gained weight, she is really starting to fill out. Goes back to the Vet Friday for next shots, I'll find out how much she has gained. Thanks again.

4 oz. plain yogart
3 oz. water
3 oz. condensed milk (no fat free)
3 large or 4 small raw egg yolks (never give raw egg whites to a cat)

Shake, then strain through small strainer to collect any eye white that may have slipped through first time.

I store in a jar with a tight lid.

Have raised 21 kittens on this formula.

When using canned baby food make sure it contains NO ONIONS - onions are toxic to cats. The advantage of goat's milk is that it is naturally lactose free - many cats hava a lactose intolerance. In Australia we can get a drinking goat's milk yoghurt with ABC for pets!

Try the nutro natural care kitten food packets (@ petco or petsmart)....my cat went crazy for it. It is much better quality than Iams, too. Don't let Iams fool you...it is 20% filler. (ash waste to make up weight)

I would get some treats at the store too...just make sure that they are ok for the age of your kitten!

Take care,

I use this formula whenever I hand feed kittens. I am currently tube feeding a cleft palate kitten who just turned 2 weeksand is doing GREAT!!!!!

I do add a few things, especially if they are reared from birth.

Bovine Colostrum - you can get this from any health food store (like GNC). Add two capsuls to 8 oz of formula. Put in container that can be shook and shake really hard. Mixes well that way. You have to make sure that its in every feeding b/c Bovine Colostrum unlike feline colostrum leaves the body w/in a week (if they only get it once).

Pedialyte - I add 6oz water and 6oz of Pedialyte instead of 12 oz water.

Egg Yolks - I add 4 eggs yolks (absolutely NO whites)

This is a GREAT formula and is superior to anything you can purchase. I recommend it to EVERYONE!!!

Oh, BTW...can also be used for pretty much any animal, and is also a great supplement for pregnant & lactating queens, as well as sick, weak or showing animals.

Good luck with your kitten with the cleft palate. In my experience they sadly do not live very long. I wish you the best-
post #20 of 22
All other recipes I have seen say NO egg whites...with that in mind is this recipe truly safe?

Yes it is, it was used very successfully by the breeder I got it from - however if you feel strongly about not using the egg or the egg white just omit as it is optional.
post #22 of 22
thanks...I was just curious. I am completely new to this whole kitten thing. My cat is pregnant now. She had 1 stillborn yesterday and nothing else since. I have an appointment for her to see the Doctor tomorrow. I was looking at recipes just in case they are needed. thanks again though
