Are you a cat lover? If so, caring tips for these loving animals are for you. Kittens below a month are considered newborn and not yet fully developed which means it must be the time you have to take good care of them the most. It is a must-have to give them scheduled feedings as much as possible like every 2 to 4 hours every day until they get fully developed. They must be supported with the right foods to help them grow. That is why you have to know what to feed newborn kittens in an emergency too.
In times of unexpected situations like running out of milk in the middle of the night, you can make your homemade milk substitute for them as an alternative. Just follow these formulas:
- A mixture of egg yolk, a can of evaporated milk, and two tablespoons of Karo syrup.
- A mixture of evaporated milk and one part boiled water into five.
- A mixture of two egg yolks, salad oil in a teaspoon, and homogenized whole milk that is equivalent to 8 ounces.
Make sure to seal them properly into any containers and place them into a cold area like your fridge. When feeding those to them, just use half of the mixture with the equivalent amount of boiling water, mix, and it is ready to be served. An important reminder in doing these ways on feeding newborn kittens during emergencies, never feed them any milk product from cows. It is not good for their health and can be a reason for death. Plus, make sure to have enough commercial milk supplies that you can purchase online, from your vet, and any pet stores.
Having the choice to have kittens is your responsibility too. Take good care of them and do your best to avoid such problems. It is always better to get ready than depending on your situational instincts.
