Mama Mia! There are 7 important tips for the care of mothers and kittens.
We had a very beautiful, very expectant mum last weekend who chose to drop off her cats right in the pit when she arrived at our hospital! The first good news: All five cats came out sound and sore. Then we found out that the Mama cats were a kind wanderer, which was the second good thing.
It was very gentle and simple to use, so the first tractor to bring mummy cats chose to support the new lucky familiy until the cats were big enough to be weaned and adopted. If you are a carer and ever find yourself in this position, here are seven important things to keep in mind when looking after a mum and her newborn.
The Mum Cats and their kittens should be situated in a peaceful and privacy room or area, away from the hubbub of the home. You will want enough space so that the mother can reach out to the nursing and the sides are high enough so that the baby doesn't drop out.
Keep the area hot as well, as kittens are easy to cool. When you open Mama and her infants in a free room, she can move her cats around the room several times. 2 ) FEED THE HIGHEST QUALITY WATER FEED YOU CAN, AND PLENTY OF FRESH WATER. Mama Katze will do most of the work, so you have to take good care of Mama.
She' ll take good look at the baby. Feeding mama with the best moist foods you can get; if you also eat arid, let her have something arid. Mama needs a lot of high-quality moist foods so that the baby gets the best possible nutrition from her during the growing time.
During the first three week the kitten will breastfeed every 1-3hrs. When they are four or five week old, they are prepared to begin to wean their mother and damp forage. Changing bed linen is recommended every day, especially during the first few week. Ensure that the bed linen area remains hot and clean.
Kitties can quickly get flohanemia, so it is really important to keep mum, kitten and the bed area flea-free. Don't use baby flea product on newborns; it's not secure because they're too young. Instead, if you see Fleas on the cats, you can bath them with Dawn Dishwasher Detergent and, if necessary, use a small crest of a flea to get rid of them.
When you need to bath your kitten, keep her well dried and kept hot as she can be refrigerated well. 5 ) USE A NON-CLUMPING CLAY SPRINKLING (E.G. JOHNNY CAT). First, Mama' gonna be the only one using the cat-toilet. Kitties will not begin using a cat toilet until they are about four months old.
It is best to use a non-clumping kitten like Johnny Cat while the cats are breastfeeding. The lump bedding works by lumping as soon as it gets damp - this can be hazardous for a kitten, because if they take some in, they can lump in their gut. The Johnny Cat is a secure, inexpensive alternative until the kitten is old enough to know they are not allowed to munch.
Keep the kitty john as far away from the feed s as possible (although we know it is sometimes cramped in a tame cage). 6) CLOSELY MONITOR THE PROGRESS OF ALL PARTIES INVOLVED. Unless you have a great deal of breastfeeding maternal and kitten expertise, it is a good idea for you to take your mom and baby with you to see a veterinarian after about 1-2 week to make sure everyone is fine.
It is very important that your kitten is constantly increasing in size, so you need to keep track of her progression every single day. You will also want to test FeLV/FIV as this will give you an idea of whether the baby will have FeLV or FIV. 7 ) TREAT THE KITS EARLY TO SOCIALIZE THEM.
You' re good with those kitties at any ages. Momkat may panic a little, so be respectful to her, but she won't refuse the baby just because you hit her. Dealing with the kitties will make sure they are growing up very domestic and socially, making it easy for you to find a great home for them.
Make sure you clean your kitten's hand before and after use. Mommy cat can be repaired when their baby is 5 week old. This is the time when the kitties eat on their own and go to the toilet alone, so they can be away from their mother for a whole or two days while she is being repaired.
When mum is wild, when the cats are 5 week old, this is the point where you can let her sterilize you and let her go right where you caught her. Catkins can be securely restrained as soon as they reach 2-3 pounds. which usually ranges between 8-12 week.
