Questions about bottle fed kittens
A friend found a kitten---the same story as all of have heard.
Anyway, she rescues it and takes it to an acquaintance who has a cat with a small litter. Cat says fine, litter says No Way!
Back to friend who decides to finish the bottle feeding. She and hubby live sorta in the country, so a cat is not unnecessary.
Her vet told her bottle fed kittens are always mean and antisocial. Said it is great condition and friend is doing a great job with feeding/care.
Now, youngest son was the cat person in out family and had a couple. One had a litter of five and was shot(have no idea why) when the litter was ttwo weeks old. We raised the kittens(doll bottles and a maternal dog with a litter of five puppies) to the point the kittens were self sufficient. The dog would not nurse the kittens but would lick and stimulate them to eliminate.
Kittens all turned out just fine and went to good homes. (Two went with two puppies)
So, since that was our only experience and is not the same as what she is doing, what has been you folks experience?
Good kittens/bad kittens or just normal kittens?
