Home Made Kitten Formula

I know, it is a weird topic, but while reading my latest issue of Best friends Magazine, I came across this recipe for home made kitten formula! It’s not often you’ll ever come across a stray newborn kitten, but a long time ago I did. It was while I was on my Uncle’s ranch digging Indian ruins with my Dad. We stopped by an old shack that was on the property to have a look around and heard this little feeble meowing sound coming from beneath an old bed. We looked under it and saw a little wild kitten peering back at us. When it tried to walk, it just stumbled weakly. We didn’t really know what to do with this poor little fellow and thought that the mommy cat may be around, so we left it there. The day after we went back and checked on it, and it had died. Apparently the mother cat had abandoned the kitten. I felt horrible. Had we known just what to feed the little thing, we might have taken it and saved it. I will now know what to feed a little stray kitten or litter of kittens if I should ever come upon one, and you will too. The recipe is for a litter of kittens, but you can reduce it is you just have one or two:

3 egg yolks
3 ounces of water
3 ounces of goat’s milk (available at most stores)
4 ounces of plain, full fat yogurt (not the low fat stuff)

Mix well and keep refrigerated until ready to use.
Because of the raw egg yolks, use the formula within two days.
Warm the formula by placing a bottle of the
mixture in a bowl of hot water, and be sure to check the
temperature of the formula by placing a bit on your
wrist as you would with a baby. Check with a vet for a
feeding schedule which should be every two to
three hours and should eat 7 to 15 CC’s per feeding.

There you have it and so will I by posting this. Thanks to Best Friends Animal Society for including this helpful information.

Dear Members and Friends,

Outcast and unwanted? Not around here! A lot of animals come to Best Friends feeling that way at first. But thanks to you, and our work together at the sanctuary and around the nation, we’re getting closer to a time when every pet feels valued.

You’re not alone. And we can help! These cats know they’re loved and wanted by everyone who comes to the sanctuary. And now, when you visit Best Friends, you can take a cat on a slumber party back at your room.

>> Watch a video of Apollo and Teela at their first feline slumber party.

Not when you’re Cherry the dog. He used to think nobody wanted his kisses. He was one of the pooches rescued from the property of former NFL quarterback Michael Vick, and he was once painfully shy. But his Best Friends caregiver recently got a slobbery surprise!

>> Read about the kiss that was a real "Vicktory."

Speaking of feeling unwanted, it’s tough when just looking the way you do makes you an outlaw. That’s why pit bulls in Montana hope you’ll visit the Best Friends Network and find out what you can do to help stop a bill that would outlaw them.

>> Visit the Stop Breed Specific Legislation community to learn more.

And singer/songwriter Neko Case has got a lot of heart! “People Got a Lotta Nerve” is her latest single, and when you download it online and put it on your blog, the animals at Best Friends get a donation. Learn how to do it, and also read all about her recent visit to the sanctuary.

>> She’s our visitor in the spotlight.

And as always, there’s lots more on the homepage this week, including:

  • Francis Battista, one of the folks who helped found Best Friends, is back on the 25th Anniversary blog, reminiscing about making history while the mayor watered his lawn.
  • Meet the man who invented the Animal House, and find out why he chose to donate a bunch of them to the precious pooches at Best Friends.
  • Wild about wildlife? Now there’s a newsletter just for you – or for anyone who might come across an injured or orphaned wild one. Check it out here.

By working together around the nation, we can achieve No More Homeless Pets in our lifetimes. That means a time when every pet feels valued, loved, and wanted. It’s worth working for!

Thank you for being a member, and making all the work at Best Friends possible.

From all of us here, thank you.
