Fostering bottle baby kittens

Fostering bottle baby kittens

Bottle Baby foster volunteers care for litters of kittens 2 weeks and older that need bottle feeding, pottying and cleaning every 3 to 4 hours.  Because care for these kittens is time consuming, the groups will range in size from 1 to 4 kittens so as not to overwhelm any one volunteer.  Volunteers can choose to foster kittens until they are weaned at about 4 weeks of age or until they are big enough for adoption at approximately 8 weeks of age.
