    Homemade food for a kitten?

    Hi PTers! ❤
    It's been such a long time since I lasted posted here. Hope you're all well.

    I needed some help with a kitten and I knew this would be the best place.

    A cat gave birth at my father's workplace a month and a half ago and left one of her kittens. He waited, but it's been alone for sometime so he brought it home.

    It's been a really long time since I last had a furry baby and I've gotten really rusty.
    > I'm trying to keep it's diet natural and homemade, but I'm not sure what to give such a tiny kitten.
    Please give some tips. 💕
    > Can you get a 1.5 month old kitten vaccinated?

    It's quite friendly and playful. Gave it a bath and it was super calm and enjoyed it quite a lot.

    TIA!

    Goat yogurt for now, then mix in other things, but right now, goat yogurt will be easy for it to digest, and has fat, calcium and calories a baby kitten needs. And welcome back, we have missed you!

    Just goat yogurt? Should I give boiled chicken or any other protein yet?

    Welcome back, Tia!

    First well kitten visit/vaccinations normally scheduled at 6-8 weeks, so your baby is ready!

    As for a homemade kitten diet: scrambled eggs, fish (fresh or saltwater) cooked and crumbled, chicken liver are all excellent sources of protein, even cooked and mashed squash are good choices!

    This is great video by two experienced "cat ladies" on how to prepare homemade kitten food!

    Love to your baby, and thanks to you and your dad for rescuing her/him!

    Death thought about it.

    What to feed

    Is the kitten still needing milk or is he/ she eating solids?
