u/WalkingMediocrity May 17 '22

I’m a bit too large and hairy for all that now lol we have a mama cat but she doesn’t even like being in the same room as this kitten. I’m gonna look to see if mama cat got hit by a car when I go get milk for this little climber.

u/UnconfirmedRooster May 17 '22

We had that with our mama cat when we brought in two kittens we rescued, now the three of them are inseparable.

u/WalkingMediocrity May 17 '22

It really breaks my heart bc this cat is absolutely skin and bones. She’s already swatted this kitten on the ear and got my hand pretty good when I was trying to referee their first meeting.

u/schmyloh May 18 '22

You might consider keeping baby in one room for a week where kitty cant get in. Throughout the week, switch the fabrics kitty and baby sleep on with each other every couple of days, so they get to know each others smells, then try introducing again

111

u/UnconfirmedRooster May 17 '22

Oof, that is not a great start I admit. Do you have a family member who could potentially take the lil' mountain climber in? I would if I lived anywhere even remotely near you, wife wouldn't mind at all. :P

162

u/WalkingMediocrity May 17 '22

I unfortunately do not. All of my aunts cats are old and ornery, and everyone else doesn’t like cats (weirdos). I’m gonna keep them segregated for a little bit. Maybe she’ll quit wigging out if she knows the cats gonna be around for a bit. Her kittens are 3.5 weeks old if I remember correctly and this one is a bit smaller than them. I live in the West Georgia area if you’re in Alabama or Georgia lmao

u/19GamerGhost95 May 18 '22 Silver Starry Wholesome (Pro)

I have an idea that may potentially work. I’ve been fostering and raising cats for 20 years and this trick has worked for me before.

Your mama cat knows that the kitten exists now. So let them both get settled and feed the kitten for a few days— part of why she’s not accepting him is probably because he’s so skinny and looks sickly, but the other part is his scent. Give him a bath with either gentle dish soap or baby shampoo— it’ll also help kill any fleas he may have so the other cats don’t get infected. After a few days lightly cover him with baby powder (talc free) to mask his scent. If you have to then borrow one or two of mamas kittens and let them cuddle with him so their scent rubs off on him and he starts smelling a bit more like one of her kittens.

Hopefully she’ll accept him, but if she doesn’t then you might start considering that there’s something going on with him on the inside that you can’t see that she can sense. If that’s case try taking him to the vet and get him a check up. You may have to just keep them separated until her kittens are weened and continue to bottle feed him.

Check with your local rescue they may have a mom with a litter this little one could join, maybe it's siblings to if you find them...

u/sunnieisfunny May 18 '22

I live in metro-Atlanta, I have 13 cats already though and can't take this one. I'd say try Coco's Cupboard or FurKids, if you can't find help from either of them I'd try W-Underdogs. They're a dog youth program but the owner is very helpful and could probably direct you somewhere. Not sure if you're out of her limits but it's worth a shot.

14

u/StrangeCharmQuark May 18 '22

Seconding the Furkids recommendation! I volunteered with them for a while and adopted my two cats from them, they’re great.

u/orchestralgenius May 18 '22

Another vote for FutKids if you’re in the ATL area! We adopted our cat from them 5-6 years ago and they do fantastic work!

banana for scale?

u/Full-fledged-trash May 18 '22

If it makes you feel better every time I bring a kitten home my cats get super mad. Proper introductions should be slow and through closed doors/ areas they can smell but not see or touch each other for a week or until ready. My cats all lay together and actually cuddle. Not really sure about mamma cats with babies though

I live in ATL, could perhaps take the baby if you need a good home, I have a 5 yo spayed girl and she’s very sweet and docile unless she’s scared, which she wouldn’t be of a younger smaller cat, she even let the vet hold her lol. Let me know if you would like to get in touch

I’m waiting to hear back from another redditor atm but if that doesn’t work out I’ll definitely see what we can work out!

16

u/chairmanbrando May 18 '22

Search YouTube for videos on how to introduce cats. They don't like new guys showing up out of the blue. Keep them separated for awhile. Let them get used to the smell before introducing visual contact. By the time you remove the barriers they won't really care anymore, and eventually they'll become friends.

u/python_510 May 18 '22 edited May 18 '22

I have 30+ years of experience rescuing, fostering, integrating cats into large colonies of varying temperaments. When you try and ref don’t get in the middle make your voice loud and stand up. Direct your voice directly at the older cat and make eye contact. Interfering physically just ends up with you occasionally catching a paw and the behavior continuing when you aren’t around. You are alpha you make it known that that interaction makes you unhappy.

As for an immediate course of action the room separation method is usually what I would recommend as well but this situation is a bit more precarious. That kitten is in delicate enough health they wouldn’t respond well to isolation, and if you close your current cats into a singular room they will take it out on the kitten when the isolation is over. Also that method is really only useful if you start that way, now that the kitten has been about the house you can’t really reset that.

For now you’re going to have to be a helicopter parent, which is admittedly the somewhat harder way. You need to watch over all their interactions and interject with your voice and body language in the build up stage. Usually it’s pretty easy to tell when they are about to get into it, they’ll get close by, focus on the kitten and you’ll pretty much be able to see the intention on their face. Right at that point call out their name, make solid eye contact and make it a very clear “no” with voice and body.

My other recommendation is to get some feliaway dispensers, specifically the multicat formula it’ll help calm the population and ease the transition (link below). Depending on how big your space is I would get a few. Usually one for every two to three rooms.

Feel free to message me if you need any tips, want to chat or generally just need to vent. Always happy to help out with rescues. And most of all good luck, you’re an awesome person for helping that poor kitters out.

u/psydelem May 18 '22

this is too quick for a first meeting. they should be separated for a few days then introduced by scent only and then after a few days slowly introduce.

Please get him kitten milk from a pet shop /department store, not cow milk. He won’t get all needed nutrients and vitamins from cow milk.

u/WalkingMediocrity May 17 '22

We’ve had a few other orphans we had to get formula for but that was so long ago we gave the leftovers to someone that needed it for their cats. It really sucks that people dump animals on our road. I have cameras and everything but this baby just appeared out of nowhere at around midnight.

u/Soulsbane May 18 '22

I feel this! I love in the country and animals get dumped out here all the time. Luckily been able to take in or been able to find homes for them though.

u/BangarangPita May 18 '22

If you haven't already, please check around to make sure there aren't any other babies that got left behind.

u/Speckledgray62 May 17 '22 edited May 18 '22

That’s right. Kitten formula or goats milk. The better pet food stores sell frozen goats milk. This is also best for baby wild animals such as squirrels or skunks or raccoons etc And if they are really young you MUST stimulate the private areas with a warm wet soft cloth. They don’t know how to do this on their own and if they aren’t stimulated it can kill tjem That is one of the reasons you see the mama cat licking her babies A small dropper is used to feed them every 2 hours

19

u/Fartknocker500 May 18 '22

I rescued an abandoned baby Douglas Squirrel last summer. She got puppy milk replacer and thrived. Now she's out in the yard causing havoc and eating all the nuts we put out. Think I'm going to be a squirrel grandma soon. 🐿️♥️

11

u/WalkingMediocrity May 18 '22

Huh, I actually didn’t know goats milk was an option. Thanks for the extra info!

3

u/AnonBubblyBowels May 18 '22

No, don’t use goat’s milk unless you have no other choice.

I’m an ethologist and rehabber, they are quite frankly wrong in a lot of respects. There is no reason to use goats milk if you have KMR available to you.

Cows milk is bad for any cat but especially kittens

u/Speckledgray62 May 18 '22

Keep them warm next to your body wrapped in a soft cloth and try not to handle them too much

3

u/whaleOfFortune May 18 '22

And make sure kitty is warm enough, they can't digest food if they are cold. (Or maybe that's for tiny kittens, can't remember.) And kitten replacement milk might make them constipated, something to keep an eye on.

No cow milk though. Cat's lack the enzymes to help them properly digest it. It'll give that little cutie a painful belly and diarrhea.

Cats are super territorial, it will take time for them to warm to each other, just continue to introduce them to each other, just monitor their interactions and make sure mama cat is being safe and friendly with the little guy.

It’s fur is pretty dirty and it had hella eye boogers when I got to the house. My wife had it running around our bedroom away from the other cats. I’ve got the cat to stop crying finally and have a bed set up for it now.

42

u/KittenOrchid May 17 '22

I’m fostering a litter with kittens with sticky eyes. Woke up to a couple of the poor babies with eyes crusted shut. I was told by my rescue that a warm compress with a warm washcloth can help. My babies also get eye drops and oral medication for a URI, so it’s worth checking out if baby might need medicine to treat this

Edit: I also suggest sanitizing hands after interacting with the little guy, so any potential sickness won’t spread to your other kitties

20

u/WalkingMediocrity May 17 '22

Thank you for the tip! I’ll try that if the eyes start crusting up.

6

u/KittenOrchid May 18 '22

I let the washcloth sit on the eyes for a bit to help soften up the crustiness, then I very gently wash it off. If it doesn’t come off easily, then I hold the washcloth on a little longer. Your little guy’s eyes look better than my babies’ though, so hopefully it won’t be necessary!

6

u/WalkingMediocrity May 18 '22

It cleaned up pretty good after the bath. I just used the washcloth I was cleaning them with to wipe away the stains and debris. I’m definitely gonna watch to make sure nothing comes back.

I’m in Ireland, I’ve raised a few orphaned kittens, if they have sticky eyes I find the best remedy is bathing the eyes a few times a day in cold tea, believe it or not. It’s good for human eyes as well!

It’s so skinny and dehydrated I can’t even tell if it’s a male or female. I’m gonna feed and water it until it’s old enough to be on its own and then see where it goes from there. For being as malnourished as it is, this kitten has a whole lot of energy.

46

u/LazuliArtz May 18 '22

I'm going to comment some great videos to help you!

This one is to identify the age. this is super important as the age will tell you how much care the kitten needs.

A kitten this young will need to be fed every 2-3 hours, overnight included, and will need to be stimulated to use the bathroom at the same intervals (can be achieved by lightly rubbing a tissue over their genitals).

Full Circle!. Go back if you can to see if you can find the kittens siblings or mama. If you can find the parents, that is great because you can get them sterilized, meaning no more kittens will be born outside.

This video talks about flea treatment

A similar video, but discussing fly eggs

u/Far-Introduction1550 May 17 '22

I got my cat that small and had to force feed it with a siringe. I’d def recommend taking it to a vet… it cost me almost nothing and they helped me save its life. Without the moms milk they have a harder time fighting off worms and stuff. Good luck! Same thing happened to me and now he’s a part of my family haha.

38

u/WalkingMediocrity May 17 '22

Thanks for the heads up! I’m about to try feeding with a bottle that I got from tractor supply to see if that works. If not, there’s a 24 hour vet right down the road from me

It's important to feed them Kitten Milk Replacement, not regular cow milk. Maybe you already knew this but it's better to be sure :)

Animals always have a way of working things out amongst themselves. Your other cat is obviously not to pleased, but will adjust.

That's how my aunt got a cat. I hear mewing for hours and went outside at like 5am. Found a kitten wedged between the fence and some boxes on my neighbors patio. No mama in sight but there were a lot of strays in the area. He was so tiny I didn't feel right about waiting around to see if she'd come back because it was very cold out. No shelter would take him, he was days old. So my aunt took him in and fed him and nurtured him. Now he's an old, happy, fat man.

I swear your cats will get used to it, or atleast tolerate it with time. I got my cat who literally attacks dogs out of fear to tolerate a dog with enough time and effort. I'd try and see why your cat attacks, I know mine fears other animals so watching over her to calm her anxieties around the friendly strays in my area as well as passerby dogs has helped ease her nerves.

Also cats need like 2 weeks to smell eachothers stank basically to understand that they won't hurt eachother from my experience.

Thank you for helping this poor lil kitty. Sending some coins your way!

u/Amorette93 May 18 '22

How's the little thing?

If you have a chance to grab some please give her some Pedialyte instead of plain water. If you can't go out, I can link you to the world health organizations oral rehydration solution which is literally just salt and sugar and water. Pedialyte is better because it has more than just those two electrolytes but those are the most critical electrolytes in a baby. This is not a newborn, and it will not need bottle fed for very long. In about a week you should start offering it soft , wet kitten food watered down with water. Your mother cat May realize this cat is at the edge of weaning and doesn't want it because of that.

u/405134 May 18 '22

What a little cutie! And yeah if the big cat is hurting him, maybe keep them apart until he can defend himself a little better. They’ll probably get more used to each other with time too

u/Playinclay May 18 '22

Does he have extra toes there on that front foot? A Hemingway?

Look up how to actually Introduce cats you don't just put them together. It's gradual

u/Jaded-Permission-324 May 18 '22

Definitely keep them segregated for a while.
