Default Abandoned kitten caring...

I have a cat who has a very young kitten. Unfortunately, the mother cat got
let out approx 9pm tonight and has not returned and the kitten is getting
quite distressed.

Does anyone know how I should go about caring for this lil one. I have a
replacement milk formula but am not sure as how to feed it to the kitten as
I have no bottle or anything.

Does anyone know how long the kitten can go without attention and feeding
from the mother? Will I need to step in tonight?

Please, any help is greatly received!

Graham

Karen,

Thanks so much for the quick response, fortunately however, I did not
require the information (I have still printed it!!).

The kitten was getting quite hysterical so I used my dictaphone, recorded 5
seconds of it, and walked about the streets with it on a loop, when I heard
miaowing coming from a neighbours garage!

I wish people would be more careful!

Hugh sigh of relief!

How resourceful! Glad you found her, and in time!

Oh you wouldn't believe how much of a relief it is! I seriously was lost and
at a dead end as to what I could do for this little kitten!

4:10am : I think I've earned my sleep tonight.

Just wait until I get my hands on the person that let her out!

Good news! After reading about your problem I think anyone with an intact female cat should keep an
emergency kit. In an emergency an eyedropper could be used. Or if no eyedropper, perhaps a
drinking straw - cover one end then the milk can be drawn up into the straw. (I hope this makes
sense) It was clever the way you found her. MLB

Wow what a good idea! I never would have thought of it! So glad
everything worked out well for all.
