Hi,

My name is***** Congratulations on your new kitten! Bottle raising kittens can be rewarding, but can also be heartbreaking. About 25% of all kittens born do not make it past 4 weeks of age.

The following link is an extensive discussion on caring for orphan kittens.

Hi, How is your kitten this evening? Is he taking to the bottle well?

Do you have any more questions for me?

Also, if you would consider rating our conversation, I would greatly appreciate it.
