What does a kitten look like when it doesn’t open its eyes

       Usually between 1 week and 2 weeks.

       Common knowledge of kitten feeding

       1. Eat less and eat more, and pay attention to the timing, ration and fixed point of feeding.

       2. Timing: feed at a fixed time every day to form a good eating habit.

       Ration: don’t eat too much or too little. With the increase of the age of the cat, the appetite of the kitten will increase gradually in a certain period of time (usually three or four months), and it will be stable after more than eight months.

       3. Generally, about 2 months of the cat a day to eat more than 5, 6 times. Three months ago, kittens were generally fed four times a day, such as 9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m. When they are three to six months old, they are fed three times a day. Twice a day after six months old.

       4. When the milk for kittens is not enough or there is no milk, you can drink special pet milk powder. When you are bigger, you can add some rice flour in the milk powder. If you eat milk directly, it may cause diarrhea, because kittens can’t digest milk well.

       Cats, divided into many kinds, are the natural enemies of rats. There are livestock everywhere. There are yellow, black, white, gray and other colors; the body is like a beaver, the appearance is like a tiger, the hair is soft and the teeth are sharp (there are almost hairless varieties). With the tail long waist, eyes like gold and silver, the best palate edge. The body is small and attractive. Curiosity.

       Cat, belonging to the cat family, is a more extensive family pet in the world. The ancestors of domestic cats are supposed to be desert cats originated in ancient Egypt, Persian cats in Persia, which have been domesticated by humans for 3500 years (but not completely domesticated like dogs).

       General cat: head round, face short, forelimb five fingers, hind limbs four toes, toe tip with sharp and curved claws, claws can stretch. Nocturnal sex.

       It usually takes about 8 days for a kitten to open its eyes after birth.

       However, at this time, the cat’s eyes are not fully open. To wait until the cat fully opens its eyes, it usually takes about 14-15 days after birth. In addition, different breeds of cats open their eyes differently. For example, short haired cats generally open their eyes earlier than long haired cats.

       In the kitten’s eye opening process, its eyes will be just a gap at first, and then as time goes on, it can slowly fully open eyes. At this stage, parents should not manually open the cat’s eyes, and do not use their hands to break the cat’s eyes.

       In the process of opening the cat’s eyes, just wait patiently and carefully observe the opening of its eyes every day. Of course, in case of any abnormal situation, it is better to ask the veterinarian to diagnose and deal with it. Don’t fiddle with the kittens casually.

       Because it’s not a domestic cat, but a wild cat, we should pay attention to the following points: cats and cats are selfish animals. Don’t go too often to see kittens. When you go, bring some food for the big cat.

       2. Don’t be too intimate with the kitten, and don’t clean up the place where the big cat gives birth. The most important thing is not to change the place for the kitten, or the big cat will take the kitten away.

       Development materials:

       Cats have reproductive capacity from 7 to 12 months after birth. Estrus usually occurs from January to March, may to August, or October. The gestational period is about 62 days. One to eight fetuses are delivered at one time. Generally, it is 3-5. A good cat can give birth twice a year.

       Newborn kitten, its eyes and ears are sealed, a little hair, about 7 to 20 days to open eyes, 9 to 15 days to learn to walk. They can eat solid food when they are four weeks old and weaned in about eight to ten weeks. When kittens are 6 months old, they can live on their own, with a life span of about 10 years.

       Cats living in human families, of course, also have 36 years of over age longevity. However, the wild cats living in human cities are not so lucky. They may only live for a few years.

       The body quality of young cats is different, so the time of opening eyes is different, generally between 1 week and 2 weeks.

       In addition, if the cat’s eyes have problems, you can use warm water cotton ball to gently wipe (along the direction of the eye seam); if there is injury, use light salt water, clean it and wipe it dry, and then apply some medicine. Do not use your hands to force open the eyes of the kitten, otherwise it is easy to cause the kitten blind. Mother cat will lick their eyes every day, and it will open naturally. If the mother cat doesn’t care, you can use a warm wet towel to gently wipe the kitten’s eyes. Pay attention! Keep the kitten in a dry, warm and dark place. Do not let strong light irritate the kitten’s eyes.

       Also, if the kitten’s temperature is too low, don’t feed it immediately. Stick it to the body first, who will warm it up.

       Feed it * pure glucose water, once an hour, about 5ml or 10ml, and then slowly warm the kitten to its body temperature, and will twist to and fro, and then feed it cat milk powder. The hypothermia kitten’s small intestine and stomach stop working. If the cat is not warmed up, the milk powder will not be digested.

       Don’t give it milk, it will easily lead to diarrhea. You can feed kitten cat food before one year old. If it is too small, soak the cat food with warm water to soften it. It will digest better and will not increase the burden of the cat’s intestines and stomach.

       Wipe the umbilical cord with 75% alcohol or iodine once a day, and then keep it dry and clean. Do not get wet, especially cat urine. In the process of taking care of the baby cat, don’t give it food, need to change drinking water frequently, clean the cat toilet every day. After the baby cat is born, we should closely observe its every move. Once there is any abnormality, we should send it to the hospital for diagnosis in time. We must not delay the treatment time of the cat.

       As for the cat mother is very cruel to you, this is the nature of the cat. When the kitten is about 3-4 months old, the mother cat will start to chase them away consciously. This is to exercise the independence of the kittens, and also to stop suckling. Even if they meet in the future, they may attack each other. This is a kind of practice of cats to avoid food shortage and excessive population in their territory.

       Hunting other animals by ambush, most of them can climb trees. There are fat pads on the bottom of the cat’s toes to avoid making noises when walking and not to scare rats away when hunting. The claws are in a contraction state when they are on the road to prevent the claws from being blunt, and will be extended when catching rats and climbing rocks.

       Pet cat

       Pet cats, dogs, children, etc., are all closed eyes for a period of time after birth. They use every inch of their skin to feel the living world, but it takes days to open their eyes. Of course, each creature’s eye opening time is different after birth. For cats, how long can they open their eyes after birth? Let’s get to know:

       Clinical studies have found that it generally takes about 8 days for a cat to open its eyes after birth, and the cat’s eyes are not fully opened at this time. It usually takes about 14-15 days after birth to wait until the cat fully opens its eyes. In addition, different breeds of cats open their eyes differently. For example, short haired cats generally open their eyes earlier than long haired cats.

       In the kitten’s eye opening process, its eyes will just be a gap at the beginning, and then as time goes on, it can slowly and completely open its eyes. At this stage, parents must not manually help cats open their eyes, do not use their hands to break the cat’s eyes. In the process of opening the cat’s eyes, parents only need to wait patiently and carefully observe the opening of the cat’s eyes every day. Of course, in case of any abnormal situation, it is better to ask the veterinarian to diagnose and deal with it. Don’t fiddle with the kittens casually.

       It’s usually between one week and two weeks,

       During this period, the cat’s living environment is best not to have direct light. After birth, the kitten’s eye opening time is different according to their own constitution. They usually open their eyes in about 7 days.

       Note: the owner must not try to open the eyes of cats that have not yet opened their eyes, which will cause the cats to be blind.

       Generally, kittens are fed by female cats. However, if the female cats have dystocia and do not have breast milk, they can not feed the new kittens. At this time, in order to make the new kittens survive, we can only feed them artificially. We don’t have to worry about the difficulty of feeding them artificially. As long as we do the following, we can easily deal with feeding new kittens.

       1¡¢ How to feed the newborn kitten — hygiene

       The most important thing to remember is to treat the new kittens as if they were new born humans. Be sure to keep clean. They wash their hands with sterilized soap before and after feeding them, and change their blankets every morning and wash them well with hot water soap – to prevent the growth and spread of germs.

       2¡¢ How to feed the newborn kitten keep warm

       1. Remember that newborn kittens need to keep warm and have enough water and nutrition. They can be kept warm in different ways, by placing a heating lamp over their nests and making them a nest with a soft lining. Another way is to use a small electric blanket, set in the low grade, cover it with a towel, put a blanket on it, and then put the kitten on the blanket. Don’t be too hot, just keep them warm. Remember to keep the corner of the nest cooler. If the kitten is too hot, it can climb there.

       2. Through observation, we can know the age of the kitten. If they still have umbilical cord, it’s about 1-3 days old; if they haven’t opened their eyes, it’s about 1-10 days old. By the 10th day, they should have almost opened their eyes. Gently open their mouths and feel the teeth inside. If there are baby teeth showing sharp points, it is about two weeks old. If they try to stand up, they are about 2-3 weeks old. If they start playing, they will be four weeks old.

       3. Do not feed milk to newborn kittens, but feed cat milk powder. There are several brands of milk powder. The temperature of cat milk should be about the same as that of body temperature. Do not feed cold milk to kittens. When feeding a kitten with a cat bottle, break off the kitten’s mouth and put the nipple in. Sometimes you need to squeeze the bottle to let the milk flow out. Don’t hold the baby cat like a baby holding a person. Make sure that the kitten lies on your lap and sucks at all times. The kitten should suck by itself. Do pay attention to the kitten must be prone to breast feeding, if not, it is likely to feed the milk to its lungs.

       4. Don’t feed the hypothermia kitten immediately, but warm it close to the body first. Feed it Pedialyte (glucose water for diarrhea): feed 1cc every 12 body weight, once an hour, and slowly warm the kitten to warm and wriggle. When it’s warm, you can feed it cat milk powder. Because the small intestine and stomach of the hypothermia kitten stop working, the milk powder will not be digested if it is fed to him before it warms up.

       5. The renal function of newborn kittens is only 25% of that after growing up, so urine can not be concentrated, and a large amount of diluted urine should be discharged. If the kitten doesn’t eat, it will dehydrate quickly, so if the kitten loses weight, consider dehydration. Dehydrated kittens have dry mouths, bright pink tongues, or mucus in their mouths. Can pull up the skin behind the kitten’s neck, if the skin does not return to the original state, but maintain the state of pulling up, that is dehydration. In addition, if the cat’s urine is not clear, but obviously yellow, it is also a sign of dehydration. Everyone who feeds newborn kittens should have sub-Q fluid and syringes and needles for injection. Many kittens have been rescued because of sub-Q injection. Weigh the kitten every day, you can know whether the kitten is growing up normally and healthily. Use a special notebook to record the weight, age and vaccination of the kitten.

       3¡¢ How to feed newborn kittens defecation and bathing

       1. Under ideal conditions, they would like their mother cat to help them urinate and clean up. But we don’t have that condition. Listen to a lot of people say to use warm cotton pad gently wipe kitten’s buttocks, let them defecate. But mom’s tongue feels like sandpaper. Wipe their buttocks in warm running water with paper towels (large paper towels used in the kitchen, which are rough in texture, not used to wipe their faces). Remember that they have to defecate. The urine should be clear and the stool should be formed (wipe PP with wet cotton ball to stimulate defecation).

       2. Don’t be afraid to bathe your kitten. For the first few weeks, you can use sterilized soap (don’t get it in your eyes) and then slowly transition to cat shampoo. Dry it well and dry it with the low temperature block of the hair dryer. Dry them and put them in the cat’s nest. The main reason for using sterilized soap is that they don’t know their previous living environment, so it’s better to be careful not to catch any diseases.

       3. When the kittens are four weeks old, they can be taught to use the litter basin. Use a very shallow basin and ordinary cat litter (non caking soil or sand). Do not let such small cats use caking sand because they will play in the litter basin and eat it. You’ll be proud of them when they use the litter basin on their own for the first time. Put them in every time they finish their milk and let them go to the toilet by themselves. They will naturally like to use cat litter.

       It still needs to be wiped off. My cat is more than a month old, and its eyes are covered with eye excrement. I also read the information on the Internet. I take a cotton swab and wipe it with warm water, soften it and remove it to clean it. The cat’s eyes are not clean from the outside, so it has a lot of eye dropsy. I can give it penicillin eye ointment three times, After that, I never had any eye droppings. Of course, because my family is a domestic cat, I have never let it out

       Feeding of kittens

       [feeding of kittens]

       If you can’t find the mother’s breast milk, you can also feed other cats, but you can’t feed pure fresh milk, because pure fresh milk contains a large amount of lactose that can’t be decomposed and absorbed by the cat’s intestines, which will make cats, especially young cats, develop lactose intolerance and cause diarrhea. Diarrhea is very dangerous for young cats.

       Therefore, you should choose to feed your cat special milk powder, which is available in pet hospitals or pet stores.

       Never feed soy milk powder, because it is very difficult for cats to digest, and it is even more impossible to feed milk outside, because ordinary milk contains a large amount of lactase which can not be decomposed by cats, which will cause lactose intolerance of cats and lead to diarrhea and other harm to cats, especially young cats. Therefore, when you can’t drink maoma milk, you should use special milk powder for cats or human infant milk powder or milk powder for middle-aged and elderly people. Although the raw material of these milk powder is also milk, the lactase in these milk powder has been hydrolyzed, so it will not cause lactose intolerance and reduce the risk

       It’s best to feed with a baby cat’s bottle, but if you don’t have it, you can also use a washed and boiled eye drops bottle (the original one, like chloramphenicol eyedrops bottle) or a clean needle tube with the needle removed, but you should feed it slowly and carefully

       Feeding schedule for kittens:

       [from birth to the seventh day]: food intake: 3-6 ml, once every 2 hours

       [7-14 days]: feed 6-8 ml per hour during the day and every 4 hours at night

       [14-21 days]: feed 8-10 ml every 2 hours during the day and from 23:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m

       In addition, the newborn has lost her kitten soon after birth. Because there is no mother cat to lick it and stimulate her defecation, she will not defecate herself. This requires you to wipe its BB and NN places with cotton swabs or absorbent cotton with warm water to stimulate her defecation. She should do it two or three times a day for a period of time

       It should be quite normal for kittens to sleep more. Observe their vital characteristics. The normal temperature of cats is between 38 ¡æ and 39 ¡æ, and the breathing rate of kittens is about 20 times per minute

       I have been in Shenzhen cats, diving, because there are several times at home to help cats and cats. There are a lot of essences on cats and cats. This is a detailed post to take care of cats and cats. http://www.szcat.org/club/viewthread.php?tid=1157&highlight=%B9%C2%B6%F9%C3%A8

       If there is no mother cat’s breast milk, we should use artificial feeding. Of course, breast milk is the best, rich in nutrition, and can enhance immunity.

       Artificial feeding requires feeding kittens in bottles. On the market, you can buy milk powder for kittens, and you can also feed * milk powder, the former is the best.

       Amount and frequency of feeding:

       Within 7 days after birth, 2 hours / time, 3-6cc each time.

       7-14 days, 2 hours / time during the day, 4 hours / time at night, 6-8cc each time.

       14-21 days, 2 hours / time during the day, 11:00 p.m. – 8:00 a.m., 8-10 CC each time. After artificial feeding, in order to promote the kitten’s defecation smoothly, the kitten needs to be massaged. Wipe the cat’s part gently with a towel soaked in warm water, and massage the cat’s abdomen with fingers. Sponge the buttocks to keep it clean and dry, then dry it with a towel and apply moisturizer.

       The action of feeding the cat should not be too fierce, otherwise it will make the kitten frightened. Gently squeeze the bottle, and the milk will slowly drip into the kitten’s mouth. Gently grasp the kitten’s neck and slowly put the nipple of the bottle into the kitten’s mouth.

       You can open your eyes after 8-10 days, and then you can add some cat food in addition to cat milk powder.

       Do not feed too often, the milk in the stomach has been unable to empty, will cause the milk to ferment and cause flatulence.

       Extended data:

       Kitten feeding tips: eat less and more meals, feeding should pay attention to timing, quantitative, fixed point.

       Timing: feed at a fixed time every day to form a good eating habit.

       Ration: don’t eat too much or too little. With the increase of the age of the cat, the appetite of the kitten will increase gradually in a certain period of time (usually three or four months), and it will be stable after more than eight months.

       Generally, you should eat more than 5 or 6 times a day for about 2 months. Three months ago, kittens were generally fed four times a day, such as 9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m. When they are three to six months old, they are fed three times a day. Twice a day after six months old.

       When the milk for kittens is not enough or there is no milk, you can drink special pet milk powder. When you are bigger, you can add some rice flour in the milk powder. If you eat milk directly, it may cause diarrhea, because kittens can’t digest milk well.

       Probiotics are an important factor in the health of pet’s intestines and stomach as well as the body’s health. In the natural environment, animals can supplement probiotics by ingesting various raw foods. Since dog food, cat food and snacks are processed foods for long-term domestic pets, the intake of various food additives will continue to damage the balance of intestinal flora of pets, which is easy to produce constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, intestinal inflammation and other gastrointestinal diseases, so it is necessary to supplement pet probiotics to maintain the health of the intestines and stomach.

       Artificial feeding

       If you can’t find a foster mother for your kitten, you can use a bottle to feed the kitten. In order to provide the kitten with antibodies to prevent disease, it is necessary to give the kitten a meal of mother’s Colostrum (the milk secreted by the female cat in the first few days after giving birth to the kitten) if possible. Squeeze a few drops of colostrum from the cat’s * * and feed the colostrum to the kitten with a dropper

       Substitute for cat milk

       However, the milk of cat and milk contains less sugar than that of cow’s milk

       Special cat milk replacer, add water as required

       Milk powder for drinking with lime water or water

       From birth to 7 days, feed every 2 hours, 3-6cc each time

       7-14 days, once every 2 hours during the day and every 4 hours at night, 6-8cc each time

       14-21 days, daily every 2 hours, 11 pm to 8 am, 8-10 CC each time

       Notes on artificial feeding of kittens

       After artificial feeding, in order to make the kitten excrete urine and urine smoothly, the kitten needs to be massaged. Wipe the cat’s part with warm water soaked towel, and massage the kitten’s abdomen with fingers. Sponge the buttocks to keep it clean and dry. Then dry the kitten with a towel and apply moisturizer

       When not feeding, let the kitten sleep in a warm, clean and comfortable small box. Put some litter, warm pad or infrared lamp, and “warm water bag” wrapped with wool cover in the box to replace the role of the cat mother. The temperature in the box should be 25-30 ¡æ in the first two weeks, and gradually drop to 20 ¡æ in the sixth week

       Steps of feeding milk

       There are three common tools for feeding kittens: a single eye dropper, a 2cc leather syringe, and a 5cm plastic tube instead of a needle. Ideally, a specially designed cat bottle can be used. If none of these three appliances are available, the bottle for premature infants can also be used

       In any case, the milk must be heated to the cat’s blood temperature (38C). Do the following. After mixing the milk with hot water (if cold water is added, the water and milk are not easy to dissolve and mix), cool it, then pour it into the bottle, and put the bottle in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes. Before feeding the kitten, try with the back of your hand to make sure the milk is neither too hot nor too cold

       In order to prevent the infection of kittens, it is very important to pay attention to hygiene. In the middle of feeding, all the utensils must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected (please use the items sold in the store for sterilization of baby bottles)

       Gently grasp the kitten’s neck and slowly put the pacifier into the kitten’s mouth. But the action should not be too violent, otherwise the kitten will be frightened. Gently squeeze the bottle, the milk will slowly drip into the kitten’s mouth

       (please indicate the above original arrangement and reprint)

       Cat’s nest

       Kittens should be kept in a warm, windless nest. You can use cartons, sterilized cat cages, laundry baskets, towels or blankets, and you need a heat source to keep your kittens warm, because kittens can’t regulate their body temperature until they are four weeks old. The heat source can be an electric blanket, a hot water bottle, or a lamp for heating. Do not let the heat source too close to the kittens to avoid burning them, and the heat source should be in the corner of the cat’s nest, so that the kitten can move to a cooler place in the nest when it is too hot. The temperature in the cat’s nest should range from 32-34 ¡ã C (the hottest place) to 24-27 ¡ã C on the other side. When the kitten is 4 weeks old, the external environment can be maintained at about 24 ¡ã C. If there are several kittens in a litter, it may not be necessary to make the nest as hot as when there are only one or two kittens, because they can nestle together to keep warm.

       The humidity is about 50% to prevent dehydration. If it’s too dry, spray a little water on the outside of the cat’s nest, or put an air humidifier.

       It’s best not to expose cats under three weeks to the sun.

       2. Basic care

       If a kitten has had some milk from her mother, it has a higher chance of survival, because it gets some immunity from colostrum. If kittens have not eaten colostrum, they are more likely to get sick and die. Hygiene is particularly important.

       Notes on hygiene

       1) Do not let the cat touch other pets (even if they are vaccinated). The kittens should be quarantined for at least 14 days and checked to be free of fatal infectious diseases. Cats are likely to carry all kinds of germs and parasites.

       2) Don’t keep several litters of kittens together.

       3) Wash and disinfect feeding utensils, cat litter and cat towel with boiling water.

       4) Wash your hands well with sterilized soap between and after touching kittens.

       5) The prepared cat milk cannot be kept for more than 24 hours. Store the unused cat milk in the refrigerator.

       6) The cat’s milk should not be stored at room temperature for more than 1 hour, and it should not be fed to the kittens.

       7) Only heat the amount that should be fed once, and heat it in hot water, preferably not in the microwave oven (if you use the microwave oven, shake the heated milk well for a while, so that the hot milk that may be in the milk will disperse).

       3. Feeding

       frequency

       The kittens of 0-2 weeks were fed once every 2-3 hours and once in the evening

       Kittens for 2-3 weeks should be fed once every 4 hours, and not at night. However, the interval between feeding should not exceed 6 hours

       The kittens for 4-6 weeks are fed every 6 hours and not at night. They can last 8-10 hours without feeding, and they should eat some cat food by themselves. You can open the cat food to them.

       Often feeding kittens can prevent kittens from hypothermia, but if fed too often, the milk in the stomach has been unable to empty, which will make the milk ferment and cause flatulence, which is not good.

       Cat milk powder

       Use the recommended cat milk substitute – Cat milk powder, which is formulated according to the energy required for the normal growth of the kitten, and fed according to the milk powder instructions. All the prepared milk should be heated to 35-38 ¡ã C in hot water and then fed to the kitten (if the microwave oven is used, shake the bottle well after heating, because the microwave heating is uneven, hot spots will be generated, and if the kitten drinks the hot milk, it will be scalded). To know if the temperature of milk is right, drop a drop on the inside of your wrist. If you don’t feel it or feel slightly warm, the temperature is right.

       If cat milk powder is not available for a while, the following substitutes can be used temporarily:

       180ml whole milk (goat milk is better)

       Egg yolk (no protein)

       1 / 2 teaspoon (TSP) vegetable oil

       1 drop of children’s vitamin

       Stir well and heat to 35-38 ¡ã C with hot water.

       Cat food

       The cat needs milk until it is four weeks old. From the fourth week, you can mix the cat milk and a little can of cat food in a shallow dish and heat it to a slight temperature (if it is heated in a microwave oven, it only takes a few seconds. After heating, it needs to be stirred evenly, because the microwave heating is uneven). Let them try and get used to the taste of the canned cat, and then they eat from the pot. Gradually reduce the amount of cat milk and increase the number of canned cats. After a week, you can add dry kitten’s food to the bowl and gradually stop adding cat’s milk to the bowl and reduce the amount of cat’s milk in the bottle until it’s gone. By the time kittens are six weeks old, they should eat their own Kitten Food and drink water from a bowl. This process should b
