Okay, assuming he's acting normally and not getting cold you'll probably be okay untill it gets light out, but it's hard to tell not knowing how long it's been since his last feeding. How's he acting? Sleeping a lot? Mewing? Does he feel cold or warm?

Sorry for all the questions. I've fostered a ton of kittens that age and I know how quickly they can decline. Just want to make sure all the bases are covered.

At the risk of sounding like a mother hen, you really need to get kitten formula for him first thing this morning. Like seriously first thing. At the butt-crack of dawn.

ETA: If he probably just opened his eyes, he can't be more than two weeks old or so. That's way too young for solid foods, they don't start eating mush or dry food untill around one month. Feeding him mush may not be the best thing.

You mean he hasn't wrapped you around his paw yet?

It's good that he's active. If he gets lethargic that's a really bad sign. Just keep him warm as was previously said. It easy for them to get chilly in the box when they don't have other siblings to snuggle with.

I miss having kittens here. Those little squeak-meows are just too darn adorable.

I'm too far away from Flordia and I already have eight cats. I don't need more cats. lol

Just remembered, make sure you stimulate him to use the bathroom since at that age they still depend on their mother to lick them to make them eliminate. He may have to go, or he may not. But I'd still give it a try with a wet cotton ball next time he wakes up.

Just dampen a cotton ball with warm water and rub it gently on his genitals for a few seconds. That will mimic his mom licking him and he should go.

I found this a little late, but Karo syrup would have been helpful as well.

If you have some, you can give it in addition to the formula.

if at all possible you may want to call humane societies or rescues if you know of any. Ask if they have any mother cats nursing kittens... if so this one could just be added to the bunch... mothers milk is best and many times vets offices will just put these kittens down because they dont have the time to nurse them back to health.


Good Luck and let us know how it goes
