I found 6 kittens at my work and it looks like their mother has abandoned them. She was with them yesterday but this morning when I checked she was gone and they were very cold (I thought one was dead, luckily he wasn't!!) So I bundled them up in a box with some warm bedding and took them to the RSPCA where they said they would put them down because they are too small. So then I rang another animal shelter and they said "Dont take them to the RSPCA! They will put them down!" and told me that they would take them in but if I was able to foster them than that would be best. I have been a animal foster parent in the past so this is fine but cats really aren't my forte, especially bubs! Any help you guys could give me would be amazing!
I think they are around 1.5/2 weeks old. Their ears are up but very small and their eyes are open. They are moving around but not standing up yet and a few of them have little fangs coming through.
I bought some formula from a pet shop but it doesn't say that its specifically for kittens, it says small dogs and elderly animals but that it is suitable for all types of animals. Is this OK? How much and when should I be feeding them? At the moment I have been feeding them as much as they can take which is about 1ml each every hour. I am worried that this is not enough.
Also they are all just sleeping. I know this is something they do a lot when they are bubs (and cats in general) but I am worried that it might be too much.
And pooping! I have been caring for them for about 7 hours and none of them have pooped. I did the wiping thing and they all piddled but no poops. Ideas?
Oh and a couple of them sneeze a little bit. Cat flu? Should I separate them all? But they are keeping each other warm? :s
Please any help or suggestions would be amazing. I don't believe in letting any animals die unless they are in physical pain and can't be saved. I need to keep this little fella's alive!!!
