How to introduce an orphan kitten to a foster mother

Have you ever faced the daunting task of presenting an orphaned kitten to a foster mother? It is not the easiest task in the world, but it can still be done with a lot of time and commitment on your part. You will find a proven way to do this in this article, as I had success with this method three times with three different cats and kittens.

A foster mother is only required to feed the kitten if it has not yet been weaned or is too small or weak to feed on its own. You must ensure that the mother cat has her own kittens that are still feeding on her milk. You should also make sure she’s healthy enough to feed another kitten before trying to get her to adopt the orphan. It is also best if you have more than one kitten, as you will tend to notice the new addition much less if your kitten is older than one. However, this method has worked well for me even with cats that only have one kitten with them.

You must first make sure that the mother cat has a safe and comfortable place to feed her kittens. While feeding her kittens. It is also good to introduce an object that has the smell of the new orphan and let him smell it. When you’ve settled in to feed your kittens, it’s good to introduce the orphan to nursing. You may need someone to guide the orphan to suck, while calming the cat if it starts to fidget. Don’t use force on her, but you should proceed to calm her by rubbing her head or the bottom of her chin. This will calm her down.

However, if you move, don’t worry, you will soon be feeding your kittens again. It should be here every time it happens. If your kitten isn’t getting a lot of milk, you should feed him some kitten or even baby formula, if that’s all you can get. I have used a pipette to do this with one of my kittens.

Little by little you will discover that the mother cat will start licking the kitten. Sometimes she can hiss and spit. When this happens, remove the kitten to avoid injury. Please re-enter it later so you have another chance. Over time, the mother cat will start licking it, and before long, she won’t be able to get out of her own litter.

This can take up to two to three days, even with the fiercest mother cats and the most unruly kittens. All it takes is a little patience and time to achieve success. So the next time you find an orphan cat, don’t shy away from it, you can follow the steps above and get an adoptive mother to adopt it as her own.
