Is there anything I can give it--cooked egg white? It's crying! If I dampen a washcloth, will it suck on that?
I raised my kitten from birth :)
Use the syringe to feed it a bit of thin pronutro if you have or strained oatmeal and get kitty formula by the vet when you can.
Kittens can't stimulate there own bowels so after each meal take a cotton wool ball with a bit of olive oil and wipe it's bum till it poops. (Like a cat will lick their kitties bums)
Put it in a box with a blanky and a clock to make the kitty think it's hearing the moms heartbeat.
