A kitten usually sleeps 20 minutes at a time. A new mother cat will have her kittens sleeping in the nest she’s made while she’s nursing them. They sleep during the day and awake when they are hungry, which is often several hours later on days that they nurse.
How much does a kitten eat?
The average amount of food your kitten should eat per day is about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of kitten formula mixed with 1/2-3/4 cup warm water, one teaspoon “milk replacer” (like Esbilac or Nutramigen), plus some canned food if necessary for added nutrition. If you are using cans instead of dry foods, be sure to get small ones because babies need all the nutritional value from every bite!
Is it true that kittens can’t drink milk? How can I make milk bottles for my baby? Where did cats come from anyway? Are there any famous cats out there besides Prince Charles’ ginger tabby named Tigerlily? When did humans start domesticating cats and why do we still keep them as pets today??
