       By the time the kittens are four or five weeks old, they should be able to drink from the basin themselves. Provide them with a low but heavy plate so that the kitten can stand inside without overturning it. Try to put the dish in the corner and keep it away from the basin. At the beginning, you can dip your finger in water and smear it on its nose, and lead it to the place where the water basin is put. Since it has started to eat from the basin, it should soon learn to drink from the basin.

       Feeding mode

       No matter which way you feed, the most important thing is not to let the milk flow into the cat’s lungs. Hold the cat’s stomach in your hand and let it lie on your stomach. Raise its head a little bit.

       1) Feed with a spoon

       This is very slow and requires a lot of patience. Each time, the milk in the spoon should be slowly poured into the cat’s mouth. It should not be poured too fast to prevent the milk from flowing to the kitten

       In the lungs. Don’t lift the cat’s head too high, or it will be fed into the lungs. The newborn kitten is not well developed, and when the milk is fed into the lungs, it will not feel sad or cough at that time. Suitable for weak kittens who can’t suck themselves.

       2) Use a syringe to drop milk

       Similar to spoon feeding, it is suitable for weak kittens who can’t suck by themselves, but it’s cleaner and faster. Put the kitten’s quantitative milk into the needle tube and put it in the cat’s mouth, one drop at a time, so that the kitten can swallow it calmly instead of being choked. Record the amount of each feed. If the kitten knows that the milk comes from here, it may start washing the head of the needle and sucking the milk out. At this time, you’d better feed it with a bottle instead.

       3) Bottle feed

       Healthy, sucking kittens like to use bottles, which is a more natural way of feeding. Kittens will eat by themselves until they are full. The size of the hole in the nipple is important. You need to cut your own hole, the size of the hole to turn the bottle upside down, only one drop of milk at a time. If the hole is too large, the milk will flow out of the hole one after another, which will let the kitten breathe into the lungs. If you need to squeeze the bottle to let the milk flow out, the hole is too small, it will make the kitten eat very hard, not enough.

       4) Esophageal feeding

       It’s the easiest, cleanest, fastest, but it requires the right tools and skilled skills to avoid pouring milk into the lungs. If the kitten is very weak, it can only be fed in this way sometimes.

       Every time after feeding milk, it is best to wipe the cat’s mouth with a warm wet paper towel to wipe off the leakage of milk. Don’t feed too much at a time, especially at the beginning. After feeding, massage the whole body of the kitten with your hand or dry towel, or pat the side of the kitten until it burps.

       This you must be hard to let it learn, more than a month of cats can eat solid food and water, only milk has not been able to meet the nutritional needs.

       Get food and water ready and don’t feed it with a syringe or spoon. It will learn to eat by itself when it is hungry. Kitten cat food or you chew it with fish (yes, it’s chewy. It’s easier to accept and digest when you start to chew) Order steamed bread, rice and noodles. You don’t need to feed it specially.
