Fluffy got flu 

Hi there. So today, after my hectic weeks finally I got to watch Hannah update about cat eye infection. She was traveling in Lowa. Fluffy also got eye infection few weeks ago so I am thankful for Hannah video. It is very easy and simple but it must be done in a very gentle way. Kitten or cat cannot help themselves if their eyes got infection so we must treat it carefully.

Kitten rescue / selamatkan anak kucing

Apakah yang perlu dilakukan apabila menemui anak kucing terbuang atau anak kucing kecil yang masih menyusu?

  1. Cari ibu kucing terlebih dahulu. Kemungkinan ibu kucing keluar untuk mencari makanan
  2. Periksa keadaan anak kucing. Jika tubuh anak kucing kurus dan mempunyai tahi mata, kemungkinan besar telah ditinggalkan ibunya. Anak kucing dibawah jagaan ibu selalunya akan berisi dengan susu dan badannya sentiasa dibersihkan oleh si ibu.
  3. Bawa anak kucing berjumpa dengan veterinar. Anak kucing yang terbiar akan terdedah kepada penyakit. Namun harus hati-hati. Anak kucing yang baru dilahirkan atau belum cukup (brp bulan) tidak boleh menerima suntikan.
  4. Jika tidak sempat ke veterinary, bawa pulang anak kucing ke rumah dah sediakan seperti di bawah:
    1. Kotak/rumah kucing
    2. Selimut/ tuala lembut
    3. Heating pad/ alat pemanas/ botol yang mengandungi air panas. Tujuannya untuk memanaskan tubuh anak kucing
    4. Botol susu untuk anak kucing/ picagari
    5. Susu formula anak kucing. JANGAN beri susu formula untuk manusia, susu tin, susu lembu dll. Anak kucing berkemungkinan boleh terkena sembelit atau buasir akibat penghadaman yang tidak baik.
    6. Vitamin (jika perlu)
  5. Bersihkan tubuh anak kucing jika kotor tapi JANGAN mandikan anak kucing dengan air. Guna tisu basah sudah memandai. Pastikan tubuh anak kucing kering.

Cara menyusukan anak kucing

Anak kucing memerlukan tidur dan susu yang banyak untuk membesar. Tubuh anak kucing tidak sama dengan anak manusia oleh itu cara susuan juga tidak sama. Rujuk video di bawah. Cubaan pertama mungkin agak sukar tapi lama-kelamaan anak kucing dan anda sendiri akan dapat menyesuaikan diri.

Jika anak kucing masih tidak dapat membiasakan diri menyusu menggunakan botol, rendam susu dalam kapas dan lap susu pada mulut anak kucing.

Cara menolong anak kucing membuang air

Selepas anak kucing minum susu, si ibu kucing akan menjilat bahagian tempat buang air anak kucing. Bagi anak kucing yang diselamatkan tanpa ibu, boleh

  1. Menggunakan tisu basah atau kapas basah.
  2. Selepas disusukan, lap bahagian punggung atau tempat buang air kecil anak kucing berkali-kali secara lembut. Anak kucing kan diransang untuk membuang air dengan sendirinya.
  3. Lap tempat kotoran secara lembut kerana badan anak kucing mudah terluka dan mengakibatkan jangkitan.

Anak kucing cepat membesar jadi apabila telah melepasi had umur (beberapa bulan) tertentu, anak kucing boleh mula menjaga diri sendiri. Penjagaan anak kucing akan menjadi semakin mudah dan disiplin anak kucing juga lebih senang dibentuk.

Travelling with cat/ perjalanan bersama kucing

Hai semua. Untuk entry kali ni, jom kita sembang dan kongsi cerita travel dengan kucing atau dengan haiwan peliharaan anda. Susah tak? Seronok tak? Jom share cerita kat sini. Nanti cerita anda boleh dijadikan rujukan untuk orang lain.

Macam biasa, video Hannah Shaw aka kittenxlady dijadikan panduan untuk travel dengan kucing. Tidak kira sama ada perjalanan yang jauh atau dekat, persiapan untuk bawa si comel bulus anda juga perlu ada supaya perjalanan anda lebih selesa dan menyeronokkan.

Persiapan

Beg kucing/pet carrier atau sangkar kucing. Mengikut keselesaan kucing dan anda sendiri. Jika kereta anda luas, sangkar kucing lebih selesa. Apatah lagi jika usia kucing anda yang dewasa dan mereka perlu untuk buang air mengikut waktu sendiri.

Pasir kucing atau tisu basah atau lampin/pampers

Bagi kucing dewasa yang mempunyai waktu sendiri untuk membuang, pasir adalah perlu. Saiz sangkar yang luas juga boleh memuatkan ‘tandas’ kucing anda. Jika tidak, anda boleh meletakkan pasir di dalam kereta tapi tidak digalakkan kerana ianya tidak selesa buat anda sendiri.

Pampers atau lampin juga sesuai. Boleh didapati di kedai kucing atau kedai Daiso. Penggunaan pampers lebih sesuai untuk kucing berekor panjang kerana kucing sukar untuk membuang pampers dari badan mereka.

Bagi anak kucing yang masih kecil dan perlukan bantuan untuk membuang air, tisu basah diperlukan supaya anda boleh mengelap kotoran yang melekat pada tubuh kucing. Tisu basah TIDAK BOLEH mengandungi bahan awet atau alcohol. Lebih mudah jika anda menggunakan non-alcoholic atau natural wet tissue.

Selimut lembut

Penghawa dingin di dalam kereta mungkin pada manusia adalah suhu biasa namun pada kucing lebih lagi kucing di Malaysia, agak sejuk. Jadi sediakan selimut untuk si comel bulus anda.

Heating pad

Heating pad perlu pada anak kucing untuk memanaskan badan mereka dan mengelak daripada mereka menangis akibat kesejukan. Anda juga boleh meriba kucing sepanjang perjalanan kerana mereka mungkin mabuk perjalanan dan memerlukan suhu badan manusia untuk membuat mereka selesa.

heating pad

Susu dan makanan kucing

Sebaiknya berikan kucing anda makan seawal yang mungkin sebelum anda memulakan perjalanan. Begitu juga dengan menyusu kucing. Ini adalah untuk mengelakkan kucing muntah akibat mabuk kereta atau tidak biasa berjalan jauh.

Beri kucing makan apabila berhenti di RnR supaya mereka tidak kelaparan dan pastikan mereka buang air sebelum anda kembali meneruskan perjalanan supaya anda akan lebih selesa dan si bulus anda juga tidak stress dan trauma berjalan jauh.

 

Panduan diatas adalah mengikut pengalaman purradisecat sendiri, nasihat daripada pakar dan pengalaman dari catlover yang lain. Tujuannya adalah untuk memastikan anda dan si bulus comel anda seronok di sepanjang perjalanan. Bagi sesetengah kucing mungkin tidak banyak ragam namun dari pengalaman yang berbeza, mungkin perkongsian ini sedikit sebanyak dapat membantu.

Jumpa lagi…

Almost of my kitten care routine are coming from her guidelines and it help me a lot. So, let’s get started.

Where to find a kitten to foster?

  • Local animal shelter- they will appreciate your help. This is because kittens are vulnerable and they need extra attention. Local shelters have a huge number of animals that need their attention and care. Go find it now!!

Feeding a kitten

check out this page http://www.kittenlady.org/feeding/

Kitten milk formulas

  • KMR Powder for Kittens & Cats
  • Powder milk or liquid milk for kitten

Please never ever give milk that is not for cat because it can cause them to have diarrhea and even worse.

Kitten wet food

kitten need more fat, protein and calories to grow up. so, prepare the high quality formualted wet food for kitten. why you should choose wet food instead of dry food? it is because it is more moisturize to help kitten stay hydrated.

  • royal cannin baby cat formula
  • wellness kitten food
  • junior kitten food

 babycat-milk-t68x

8 weeks kitten

  • minimum meals for kitten is 3 filling meals every day especially early in the morning and before bed time

  • they can fully eat adult food but make sure its contain healthy ingredient for cats.

FRESH WATER (important)

keep a fresh water in a bowl always available because you dont want your kitten to be dehydration or drinking not-so-fresh water.

 Supply

  • Kitten nipple
  • Bottle
  • Syringe for newborn kitten

 

you can watch this video on how to bottle feed a kitten

Bedding

Newborn and kitten have a weak body immune if they are abandoned for too long. It is very essential for foster mom/ dad to give them a comfortable and warm place to sleep. Even if you adopt a kitten together with their mother, you can always provide these to your furry family.

Heating pad

Kitten must be kept in a warm and comfortable place. You can put a heating pad under their blanket or if you can’t find a heating pad, you can put a bottle with warm water under their blanket. Kitten will snuggle to the blanket and they will feel comfortable.

Blanket

Also you need to provide soft blanket for kitten. Baby blanket for human baby is the best choice.

Bedding

For newborn kitten, I prefer my kitten to be put in the hiding place. Just like a cat mother will put her kitten in a hidden place. This is to make sure that the kitten will feel safe until they are ready to go out and explore the other part of their new house.

For kitten, you can put them in the kitten cage or kitten house but choose the place that is not too open. They still not used to be in new environment and you can help them slowly to be familiar with your place.

House

Place to eat

You can teach your kitten to eat at the same place every feeding time. By doing this, it can help your kitten to know where they can get their food from and avoid them to take their food everywhere in your house.

 

Litter train

Your kittens need a litter train. Same goes to big cat, they also need a litter train. Cat and kitten needs a litter train to avoid them from peeing and popping everywhere and caused an uncomfortable smell in your house. All you needs is a litter sand, a scoop and big basin.

I prefer to use litter sand because it can eliminate the smell and dry the kitten/cat pee. you don’t have to replace the sand for at least a weeks until you-know-when to replace with the new one.

Scoop is for you to scoop out the poops from their basin. Always clean your kitten/cat toilet because they will stop using it when they found it is not clean

Big basin is important because you want to avoid mess when they dig into it. If the basin is too small, you will need to put extra work to clean the sand.

how to stimulate kittens to go to the bathroom

Stretching post

To avoid your kitten/ cat from left a mark on your sofa and beloved furniture, you need to give them a stretching post. You can buy or DIY stretching post. As for me, I prefer to use cat tree that included a stretching post together. So your cat can play and stretch at the same time.

 

cat treeToys

Happy cat make happy owner or vice versa. You will need toys to play with your kitten/ cat. Again, if you doesn’t want to spend money buying toys for your cat, you can always DIY and some toys are ready-made. You just need something to attract your cat/kitten to play with you. Sometime I’ ll just use rope and feather to play with them. They are happy with whatever toys you give them as long as it is safe.
