Editorial Reviews

Newborn kittens have only a tenuous hold on life, because they are completely dependent on their mother for warmth, nutrition, and protection. Without her, these tiny orphans cannot survive for long. But willing human heroes can successfully handraise orphan kittens to healthy adulthood. That's where this lifesaving book comes in. Expert advice on first aid for newborn kittens, finding a suitable feline foster mother, hand-feeding, weaning, socializing, and coping with a sick kitten will help even the most neophyte of kitten parents undertake this rewarding adventure with confidence.

Format: Paperback
Anyone who takes care of stray cats inevitably finds a kitten or a whole litter of them with no mother. "Handraising Kittens" is a must-have for anyone who must see a newborn kitten through the first critical stages of its life. Easterly describes with compassion and in detail the steps necessary feed a kitten, build a nest to keep it warm, teach it to eliminate wastes, and clean it in ways that will not threaten the kitten's life. Easterly also provides sample charts for tracking a kitten's feeding, weight overall progress. If you must raise a kitten yourself, this book is invaluable.

Format: Paperback
This is a very helpful book! Everyone is bound to find a kitten or kittens with out a mom. This book will help you raise them into big healthy cats. I foster newborn orphans from and animal shelter, or just feral cats that are trapped and should sometimes be raised by a person so they will not be taught to be wild by their feral mom. You will learn how to bottle feed or tube feed, how to keep them warm, and much more. I highly recommend it!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By D. M. Crosgrove on May 10, 2007
Format: Paperback
A neighborhood feral cat had 4 kittens outside our basement (recessed) window. Because of the commotion there, she moved 2 and abandoned 2. We brought in the abandoned ones when they were 3 days old. So far, they are 2.5 weeks, and growing strong. This book provided valuable, and concise, information to help us through.

You can find tons of information on the Internet about this subject. A lot of the medical information you will find has sites conflicting with each other. (Joy!) This book is easy to understand, has lots of images, and is ASPCA certified.

I strongly recommend it for anyone who is taking the place of a mother cat for newborns.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful reference book for both experienced pet rescuers or for the novice who happens to find a litter of orphaned kittens. The information is presented in a thorough and concise manner without overloading the reader with a lot of words. The pictures are clear and help illustrate the procedures being presented. This is an excellent addition to a cat lover's personal library.

This is a valuable reference book for anyone who rescues cats. It's very thorough and straightforward, with excellent photos throughout. I'm very pleased with it and will recommend that the rescue group I work with purchase a copy for all new kitten foster homes.
