That way works if the kitten is old enough for those little peas to drop but, if it’s still too young, there’s a good way to tell the kitty’s sex: Take a look below the tail, between the legs. If you see something round or conical, it’s a boy. If you see a slit (back to front) it’s a girl.
Figaro is just darling! But if he’s only a month old, he’s probably not weaned yet, so he should be eating (drinking?) cat’s milk — milk from a cow won’t give him the immunities that he should have gotten from his mother’s milk. You can get cat’s milk from most pet supply shops.
Best of luck to you and little Figaro :3
Yes, definitely: please take Karamel to a vet to give her necessary inoculations, test for FIV and leukemia, etc, and also:
– She needs cat’s milk (not regular cow’s milk) to give her the immunities she should have gotten from her mother’s milk but stopped drinking mother’s milk too early.
– In the wild, kittens need help pooping at a young age.…[Read more]
What a sad story with, hopefully, a happy ending!
You may already know but, in case not, milk from a cow is not good enough for her; she needs cat’s milk, available at most pet supply stores. The milk will give her the immunities she would have gotten from her mother, to common cat diseases. She doesn’t need to be immune to cow…[Read more]
Kiki looks like a sweet little girl! :3
Thank you for taking care of her. Until about 5 years ago, I lived at a place that had several cats hanging out, mostly feral, and I fed them, found a home for a few and helped the local no-kill shelter trap the rest. The one that was not tameable, they neutered and set free again.
Note: when I see…[Read more]
What a sweet little fuzzball!
Don’t forget that she’s a CAT. That means that she’ll be sleeping most of the time. If you really want her to have company, you can take home another cat, and the two of them can play together. The other one will be less annoyed if it’s also a kitten and playful. I also think that two cats of the same sex tend…[Read more]
Looking back at that first pictures, I see my error. what I thought was white, is lit by direct sunlight; what I thought was red, is lit by incandescent light that turned his white fur a shade of red.
With that new understanding, I see that Dio is, indeed, having a great time in the top pic :3
Wait a minute! I see pictures of two different cats here. The first pic is of a calico, which is almost certainly female, and the second pic is of a black-and-white tabby, which may be female but probably 2/3 likely male. I assume this tabby is Dio, since you talk about him in the masculine gender. Who is the calico, who’s looking like she’s…[Read more]
Mortimer is going to grow into a beautiful cat, such interesting and unusual colors!
You should be aware that “regular ol'” cow’s milk will not give him the immunities that he needs; he should get cat’s milk, which should be available at any pet shop.
Good luck! I wish you many wonderful years with this sweetie!
I’m so glad your mommies took you in so you can grow up safe and well-fed. I hope your human mommies know that you need cat’s milk to give you the immunities that you would have gotten from your mother’s milk, had she not abandoned you. Cow’s milk won’t give you those.
Have a great, long life!
Thank you for taking care of adorable little Ciri! I assume that since you seem to care enough about how to best take care of her to go searching for info, then you are already giving her cat’s milk, not cow’s milk. Good for you!
Best of luck, I hope she grows up to be healthy and happy for many years :3
Peanut & gumball are adorable little darlings! I’m so glad you gave them a home.
You should be aware that they need cat’s milk, not just “regular” cow’s milk. Ordinarily they would get needed immunities from their mother’s milk so, without that, cat’s milk should give them what they need. You should be able to get it at any pet supply…[Read more]
Easy to tell whether your sweet pussy is a him or a her: take a look under the tail, between the legs. If you see a little cone or circle, it’s a boy. If you see a slit (front to back) it’s a girl. Then you can change the name if you like, but I think Jenner is a fine name for a cat of either sex, :3
I’m not sure what KMR is, but I think that goat’s milk is not right for this adorable little guy… he should be eating/drinking cat’s milk (which you can find in most pet supply shops) to give him immunities to things that trouble cats. Ordinarily he would have gotten those from his mother’s milk.
Good luck with him!
Bottle feeding is good, provided you’re giving him cat’s milk and not cow’s milk. You can get cat’s milk at most pet stores. Why not cow’s milk? It won’t give him the immunities to cat diseases that he needs. Normally he’d get that from his mother’s milk.
