How do I care for an abandoned kitten?

+2 votes

I found a teeny kitten outside. Hoping it's mother would come back to claim it, I left it for a couple of hours, just keeping tabs on it from my window. It's mother hasn't returned and I don't know what to do. How should I care for it?

If the kitten is almost newborn, the chances of survival may not be good. The mother cat could have abandoned the kitten because there was something wrong with it. However you can contact your veterinarian to get formula close to mother's milk and feed it every 2-3 hours with an eyedropper. Ask your vet what amount to feed the kitten. Or you can bring the kitten to the nearest shelter or rescue group and ask them for help.
