Hi, yesterday evening I found a 3 week old kitten who was meowing desperately underneath a cattle trailor. I have a lot of ferrel cats so it's not unusual to find kittens. I was able to find another kitten that was obviously a sibling in a shed, I put them together in hopes that the mom was moving them and that she would come back for them. This morning around 9:30 ish I went out to see if they had been moved. They are still there. I know that they haven't eaten in a while, so what should I do? I'm gonna give their mother an hour or two, to see if she'll come back. But if the mom hasn't come by 11:00ish I'll need to help them. I have a cat that is still producing some milk ( her kittens are 3 months old) and she has accepted a different kitten before but that was when her kittens were a week old and the new kitten was only 2 weeks old. So I'll try to give it to her, are there any ways to encourage her to accept them? She sniffed one of them, and hissed and growled at it. If she won't accept them what do I feed them? It's Thansgiving today so the stores are closed, so I can't buy kitten formula. Is there a homemade recipe for milk I could try? Thanks in advance!
