Newborn Kitten Care
There are several different reasons that may make it necessary for us to have to take care of a newborn kitten. First, the mother cat may be sick or even has died. She could have even had more kittens then she could take care of. If the kitten is sick, sometimes the mother cat will not take care of it. And the worst is that the owner of the mother dumped the kittens out, while this is sad, it does happen quite often .
One of the most important things is to make sure the kitten is dry and warm. A kitten will die very quickly in a short amount of time if his temperature is dropped and he goes into metabolic shock. Fixing a dry, warm bed is important. Using old towels and a cardboard box will work. Just holding the kitten to your body will help to warm him also. Be careful if you need to us a heating pad or heat lamp. Be sure the kitten can crawl away
