Neo-Natal Kitten Fostering Video With Amy Bender
Passionate cat lover Amy Bender juggles several roles. She’s the mom of celebrity cat Sauercraut Kitty (finalist in Animal Planet’s Next CatStar Contest and Instagram darling), a special needs cat advocate and neo-natal kitten foster provider for Central Oklahoma Humane Society
With kitten season in full swing, there is a huge need for kitten fostering but neo-natal fostering (kittens from birth to 4+ weeks) and require round the clock care. With no feline mothers, they must be bottle-fed. It’s a daunting but rewarding task to be responsible for tiny kittens with high mortality rates despite the best care or intentions. It’s not for the faint of heart but if you think you might be interested, Amy has begun teaching workshops. She very kindly is allowing us to share her recent Neo-Natal Kitten Fostering video. Click to view the full baby bottle feeding class (58 minutes). It’s a hands-on and yes there are cute kittens. If it inspires you to foster, check with your local shelter and their foster program.

Big paws up, and MUCH respect for Amy, and anyone who cares for neonatal kittens. That is really hard work!
Neonatal kitties are a lot of hard work and a lot of great reward!

We admire those who take care of neonatal kittens ; Mum and us wouldn’t know what to do in this case ! We bookmarked the video to watch it later. Purrs
Aww, Amy is such a darling. So many important roles available for cat lovers to fulfill. Love Sauercraut kitty, too, and all kitties whose natural, beautiful good looks are the result of a genetic defect. Everybody is beautiful, and all cats, too.
I admire anyone who cares for kittens, it is a big commitment.

It must be very rewarding to raise neo-natal kittens but it must take such a lot of time to do it depending on how many there are in the litter.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Sometimes Cats Herd You
We have such respect for people who can raise neo-natal kittens. It’s so much work. The head peep raised a neo-natal squirrel once and it exhausted her. (And the cats she had at the time didn’t even get to eat it…)
The humans who care for neonatl kittens get all respect from me – it’s a HUGE job!
I visited the kittens, they probably sleep, because of the time difference :o) but I like that they have a cool plush dog in their room :o)
