How Long Can A Newborn Kitten Go Without Eating?

It’s not uncommon for a kitten to go several days without eating, especially if they are being hand-fed. But this is usually because the baby cat has been moved frequently and therefore does not know where its mother is hiding food. Once they have settled in with their mother, they will most likely eat every two or three hours. If you see your kittens sleeping during the day but clearly moving around at night then it’s safe to assume that they are still getting enough milk.
