Kitten Feeding Schedule

Newborns – when possible, leave kittens with the Mom cat and support the Mama cat. Feed her, keep litter clean and give her a cozy box in the corner with security, clean blankets, and visibility for her to see out.

If there is no mother present, newborns need to be bottle fed every 2 hours. They must be kept warm, and fed stomach down. Never feed a cold kitten, and never put them on their back to feed like you would a human baby.

For kittens, please feed 4 to 5 times daily. For newborns without a cat mom, it can be every 2-3 hours, and must be fed while warm, and stomach down. Never feed a kitten on it’s back like a human baby.
