Mother Cats 🐱 taking care and Protecting their cute Kittens safety 👩‍👦 Mom cat and Kitten

Caring for newborn cats is a difficult business. They need attention and care all the time. If you are in charge of recently born cats, you will need to do more to care. If the mother cat is still in the picture, then she will meet the needs of the kittens themselves. You can help her by feeding her and leaving the youngsters alone during the first week. If the mother is not around, or if she is unable to take care of them, you will have to perform her duties. This includes feeding the young, keeping them warm, and helping them relieve their needs.

1* Look at it. The attention that you will give to kittens depends on several things: their age, the presence or absence of the mother cat, and the health of the young. If you find babies separated from the mother, then you will need to provide them with what their mother might do, such as food, warmth, and help with the need. Take the time to look into it before beginning interest in them. [1]
If you find kittens that are born and think their mother has abandoned them or separated from them, watch them from 10 meters away, for example, to find out whether or not the mother will return.
If the young are in immediate danger, you will have to intervene without waiting for the mother to return. For example, if they are at risk of freezing from the cold, or are left in a place that could run them over, or in an area with dogs that might harm them, you must intervene immediately. [2]

2* Seek help from your veterinarian or animal shelter. Don’t feel like you have to take care of these kids alone. Caring for them can be difficult, and you may not have the ingredients to ensure their survival. Contact a vet or shelter for help. They may be able to provide a surrogate mother to help the youngsters get the proper nutrition or perhaps supply you with a bottle of food. [3]

3* Place food for the mother cat if she is around. If the mother is present and cares for the young, it will be best to let the mother take care of them. But you can still help by putting food and providing shelter for the mother. Just make sure to put food and shelter in two different places, or the mother won’t accept them. [4]

4* Feed the young. If the mother is not around or is unable to care for the young, you will need to prepare their own food and feed them yourself. The type of food you will provide them will depend on their age. Be sure to consult your veterinarian about any special type of food they may need. [5]
When the babies are a week or two old, feed them every two hours with a bottle of commercial formula for breastmilk. Do not give them beef because it is difficult for them to digest it.
When they are 3-4 weeks old, put the milk in a deep dish next to some cat food diluted with water. Provide this food 4-6 times a day.
When they are 6-12 weeks old, increase the amount of milk and start giving them cat food, 4 times a day.

5* Weigh your cats once a week. To ensure that cats get the right food and gain weight, you will need to weigh them once a week and record their weight. Cats should earn from two ounces to a quarter to three and a half ounces per week. Talk to your vet if your cat does not gain weight fast enough. [6]
