New Parents of Smokey...



Son brought home a baby kitten from friend's home who was releasing the kitten at what I believe is approx 3 weeks old (I'm going to include a picture - if that can determine how many weeks old the kitten really is) At this age, I don't think it's right that it is separated from it's mother.

Right now I am feeding the kitten a make-shift "mommy's milk" of 1 teaspoon corn syrup, 3 parts evaporated milk (from a can) and 1 part water in an eye-dropper.

I don't think that it was right of them to release the kitten at three weeks, however the owner had stated that their daughter maltreated the kittens and the owner was trying to get the kittens and the adult cat removed.

I'm not a cat-rescue person, but evidently we are now the parents of a little gray tabby by the name of Smokey. Sorry about the sucky iPhone 4s photo. I had to take a quick one to e-mail to the cat-rescue place for advice. I'll put up a D300s photo when I have a chance.

I'm a sap. One pathetic mew and I'm milquetoast. I can't say "No"! ~sigh~

Here's one with my wife's D90 which I stole.

We got VOKRA (Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association) in...and sicced them on the owners of the Momma cat and let VOKRA have Smokey since she was dehydrated (we tried to get fluids (kitten milk) into her but she fought us all the way...)

I'm not a PETA type, but I do take extreme offense to those who abuse their animals.

Re: New Parents of Smokey...

3 weeks is a bit on the young side. You my want to try subcutaneous fluids to prevent dehydration if they won't drink milk. There are mothers milk formula's you can buy at specialty pet stores.

at 5-6 weeks you can begin weening of liquid food and moving to solid food but initially you will want to water the solid food down to a soupy mix and then thicken it over a few weeks.

We let Vancouver Kitten Rescue have Smokey because they have more experience with young kittens less than three weeks of age. Usually it's 6-8 weeks when they are allowed to be adopted out. Before then it's too touch and go. Like they say, when a kitten that young goes down, it goes down quickly so better that we let VOKRA handle it. BTW they also went to the person who adopted them out (lets her cat get pregnant so that she can get some easy money) and VOKRA got both the momma cat and the other kitten apprehended. So hopefully, the little cat family is reunited back at VOKRA's shelter.
