What do I feed orphaned kittens?

Formula for motherless kittens

This is an excellent formula for orphaned kittens:

2 Egg Yolks
1/2 teaspoon of bonemeal
1/4 cup brewers yeast
2 cups of whole milk, (or 1 cup of evaporated milk and 1 cup of water)
Whirl in a blender or food processor until well mixed.

Kittens need to be fed much like human babies-every three to four hours, so make sure you have alot of free time on your hands for the next 4 weeks if you take in an abandoned kitten. At four weeks you can start weaning them, but stretching the time between feedings and adding moistened kitten food to their diet.

Kittens/Cats are lactose-intolerant and should not be given cows milk. It can cause serious distress to the kittens digestive track.
