Nursing her kitten

Species: cat | Category: other | Submitted: 28 May 2007 07:45PM | viewed 33190 times
Q Dean asks:

My cat has a 3 week old kitten and has been very good at nursing so far. But we let her out over 12 hours ago and she hasn't returned. We are a bit worried about how long the kitten can go without her mother's milk and what we can do with regards to nursing the kitten.

Q Our vet says: Hopefully by now your cat has returned, but if not then you should contact your local vet and get some milk replacer if you need to start feeding the kitten yourself. At three weeks of age it is possible to start the introduction of solid food but the kitten will still need mostly milk. I hope that the mother returns safe and well.
