The reasons why you may have a small helpless, weak kitten in your hands are different: you were left without a cat, the guys were tortured, you got sick. But whatever the reason, it needs to be properly cared for, and it is better to entrust the treatment to the veterinarian.
It is necessary
- - substitute for cat milk;
- - a syringe or small syringe;
- - warm rags or blankets;
- - heating pads.
Veterinarian consultation. It is better to take a weak kitten to the doctor immediately. Perhaps he has hidden diseases and needs vaccinations or treatment. All the work on nursing will be in vain if you do not establish in time the cause of the animal's poor health.
Feeding. If the kitten is very small and weak, then feeding is the most important part of the entire nursing process. You need to feed the kitten every 2 hours, like a small child. It is very important to follow the regimen. You will need to purchase special formulas that resemble baby food or milk powder, only for kittens. You need to feed through a syringe or syringe, but not forcibly. The kitten itself, having tasted one drop, will suck on the milk. If he refuses, it means that he is full or he feels bad. The milk should be warm.
Surround with warmth and care. If it is not possible to purchase a special infrared incubator for a kitten, then make it yourself. To do this, put a lot of warm rags or a rolled blanket in the box, and cover the outside of the box with hot water pads. You can put the box on an electric heating pad. However, remember that you cannot overheat the cat's house either. It is necessary to maintain the temperature equal to 38C.
