Newborn kittens and syringe feeding

For those devoted people who feed newborn kittens I wanted to share the newest nipple we found that works great. I'm adding the video explaining them also. They were originally for squirrels but work great on kittens. Don't be concerned on the length of the nipple.

They work good because of how the end where it attaches to the syringe is large and round so you know how far to let the nipple to in. We got in 10 day old kittens yesterday with their eyes not open yet.( Their mother was hit by a car) The foster mom said the syringe nipples worked wonderfully!

This is Great Information!!

Great to know. I'm hoping to be able to foster kittens this year. Now that Penny has been adopted my cat room is free. I have never fostered kittens before so this will be a totally new experience for me.

I have an opportunity to foster a momma and 4 kittens. I dunno. I'm so nervous!

Zoey was abandoned by her family to the shelter because they were moving and didn't want to take her. She is shy but affectionate. Just so uncertain of her circumstances.

Actually it's easy. The mom does all the work. You get to watch the nurturing and get to bond with them. Go for it Marcia!!!!
