9 Ways to Take Care of a Newborn Kitten

1. Finding an Adoptive Mother for Cats

        The way to care for the first newborn kitten is to determine whether the kitten is really left or not.

If it's not there, you can find out if there is a mother cat willing to take care of the kitten. However, not all mother cats will accept kittens.

        Always be aware that when a kitten is familiarizing itself with an adult cat, there is a chance that the kitten will be eaten if rejected by an adult cat.

If you can't find an adoptive mother cat, you can try taking care of the newborn kitten yourself.

2. Keeping the Cat Warm

    When you find a baby kitten without a mother, protect the kitten from the cold immediately.

The reason is that kittens can't produce enough body heat to warm their bodies.

The best way to care for baby kittens without a mother is to keep the cats warm by keeping them in a box or container with a soft blanket, such as a baby blanket.

If it's not warm enough, you can place a bottle filled with warm water to keep the cat warm.

Make sure the cat's body temperature is between 31 and 33 degrees Celsius until they are about 5 weeks old.

3. Giving Milk Regularly

        The next way to care for newborn kittens is to feed the cat formula every two hours.

This step should be done if the kitten you are caring for is less than a week old.

At 2 weeks of age, you can give your kitten milk every 4 hours.

After 4 to 5 weeks of age, you can replace your cat's formula with wet cat food, as your cat can already eat food by this time.

4. Give Stimulation to Cats to Be able to defecate

Newborn cats can't defecate on their own.

Therefore, you have to give them stimulation so that dirt can get out of their bodies.

How to stimulate kittens is very easy, rub the cat's stomach and anus gently using a cotton ball or tissue moistened with warm water.

5. Pay attention to the cleanliness of the cat's body

Kittens spend the majority of their time sleeping. This makes their eye area often covered with eye discharge.

When the kitten wakes up, you can clean the eye discharge using a cotton swab that has been moistened with warm water.

6. Practice Throwing Cat Litter

        At 4 weeks of age, you can teach your kitten how to get rid of the litter in the litter box. After eating, place the cat in a litter box filled with cat litter. Take the kitten's paw and teach them to scratch while covering the dirt. This is already in the cat's instincts, so cats can learn this quickly.

7. Practice Kitten Movements

        When your kitten is 3 weeks old, you can train your kitten's muscles and nerves so that they become more agile. The trick is to give them toys such as balls or ropes so that they want to play while training their movement muscles.

8. Give Love and Attention to Cats

        Just like humans, cats also need affection in order to live well. Don't forget to always caress your beloved cat and pay attention to your cat every day.

        Besides being able to nourish them, this can also make the cat more loyal and affectionate to you,
