I found a abandoned kitten about 10 days old that I took in. Sucks outta a bottle just like a baby does. Now Im the kittens momma until I have my own child lol. I gotta care for her like you would have to a baby feed/cleaning. I gotta feed her every 3 hours.

Orphaned kittens are a lot of work, but very much worth it. Such sweethearts.

Two of our cats were orphans that we took in at just weeks old... They just turned a year old this month, and they are beautiful, social, loving cats.

Ditto the above. I took care of a litter quite a few years ago and all 3 made it. They were only a few days old when we got them. Make sure you have kitten formula so that it's getting the proper nutrition and keep up with vet visits and you should be good. One of the kitties my mom has and she's now at least 13 years old maybe a bit older so they definitely can lead long healthy lives even if things started out a bit rough.

Oh and as a PS, no cows' milk.

good luck!
