Caring for Newborn Kittens
If you’ve just been given the job of being a foster parent to a kitten, lucky you! The kitten should be nursing and getting his mother’s milk, but if that’s not possible because the mother has rejected the kitten, isn’t lactating, or is just absent, it’s time to step in.
Introducing the KMR Kitten Liquid Milk Replacer 8oz:
KMR Liquid Milk Replacer is recommended as a food source for orphaned or rejected kittens or those nursing, but needing supplemental feeding. The Replacer is also recommended for growing kittens or adult cats that are stressed and require a source of highly digestible nutrients.

Food Type: Cat Milk Replacer
Food Consistency: Liquid
Life Stage: For kittens newborn to 6 weeks
Primary Ingredient: Water
Package Weight: 8 oz
Caution: Consult your veterinarian for additional advice. Not for human consumption.
All kittens should receive the queen’s milk for at least 2 days, if possible. The colostrum milk gives extra nutrition and temporary immunity against some diseases. Feed at room or body temperature. KMR liquid may be fed at the daily rate of 2 tablespoons (30 mL) per 4 ounces (115 g) of body weight. The daily feeding rate should be divided into equal portions for each feeding. Kittens’ needs will vary and this amount may have to be increased or decreased, depending on the individual. Small or weak kittens may need to be fed KMR liquid every 3 to 4 hours, while larger kittens will do well when fed every 8 hours. Weigh the kittens daily to assure adequate feeding.
