Two 2-week-old orphaned newborns came to our foster home yesterday. Their mother is a feral cat around Temasek Secondary School and some humans separated her kittens from her, leaving them orphaned. There were three kittens at first, one has been fostered/adopted, and the remaining two are at ours now.

Their eyes haven’t opened yet but their canines are starting to bud, which puts them at about close to 2 weeks old. They are drinking well, but having a touch of diarrhoea. Iodine is smaller in size and weaker, and we hope she pulls through and does not fade. Both of them are relatively healthy so far, if a bit hypothermic when first arrived.

They are currently on 2- to 4-hourly feeds of KMR milk with vitamins B, C, colostrum, CoQ10, probiotics, glucose. When they are healthy and on solid food, vet checked, they will be put available for adoption. For now, paws crossed for them!
