How to Bottle feed a Kitten

Easy to follow steps from Wiki How To: 

General Tips

*  Check with local veterinarians and Humane Societys to see if there are any mother cats that the kitten you found might be able to nurse from.

* Local pet stores carry kitten replacement formulas and supplies to help feed your kitten.

* Sterilize bottles or any equipment you use for the kitten.

* Kittens up to 3 weeks old may digest up to 2 tablespoons for every 4 ounces of body weight every 2 to 3 hours.

* Position the kitten how he would nurse should he be nursing from his mother.

* When he is done feeding, rub his belly, as the mother would of groomed him, to encourage digestion. 

* Soft canned food can be introduced when kitten is around 4 weeks old.
