    hi everyone quick question!
    my mates just mentioned to me about a kitten thats been found they think its about 3 weeks eyes open and can walk ! and are gunna bring it aorund tmoz so i can see how old i think it is and whether it still needs milk!
    If its still tiny ive sed maybe my cat hocus will foster it as she has a litter who are 2 weeks all have eyes open now and healthy!
    What would be the best way to introduce the kitten ?
    am i rite in thinking you rub the new kitten on the others so they smellthe same with out mum seeing and then let her back in ?
    She is a brillant mum so i cant c there being a big problem but doyou think big age gap would cause problem ?
    we do have lactol ect on the ready incase thanx 4 your replys

    Hi,it may work,my girls feed other kittens,good luck:): just make sure kitten is 100% healthy before introducing to your litter,no runny nose/eyes,sneezing etc.or fleas!

    I'm sure your cat will accept the new kitten. If it really is that young, the poor thing will be desperately hungry by tomorrow.
