Itty Bitty Kitty Update

Thought I'd post an update on our new little kitties. They are mostly doing very well and mama cat is being a great mommy. But one of the kittens is a little runt, seriously only half the size of the other 3, and was having a hard time nursing. He couldn't find a spot or latch on well, plus he kept getting pushed down by the 3 bigger kittens. I was worried that he would starve or get sick. So tonight I went and bought some kitty milk replacement (kitty formula basically) and gave him a tiny bottle and he chugged it down. Hopefully he'll be able to learn to nurse better, but until then I'm glad I can supplement him with the formula so he can grow and get stronger, since he is so tiny and weak. Anyway, there's my update :) I'll try to get pics tomorrow so you can see how tiny he is compared to the others.

Awwww, a cute tiny little runt!!

That reminds me, I need to get my dog spayed. LOL I can barely handle one pet, baby pets would send me over the edge. LOL

Can't wait to see a pic!

Poor little kitty! I'm glad he ate the supplement. Hopefully he keeps getting stronger. They all are super cute!

How sweet of you to try to give it an extra boost to catch up with its brothers/sisters!
