We recently ended up with a stray kitten I'm guessing 4 weeks old.
For the first few days I was syringe feeding because it had no idea how to drink from a bowl. It's recently moved onto some soft food & has been vet checked (yesterday) and had a flea & worm treatment.
I thought one of these things would solve our problem but its hasn't.
The kitten cries CONSTANTLY.
Its like having a newborn again.
It cant find its own food/formula so at night when it cries I have to get up, pick it up & put it in front of its food (same with the kitty litter) then pat it back to sleep.
We do this process 4 - 8 times in a 24 hour period.
The cat however has no problem finding me. It will follow me around crying (its walking fine) I always pick it up for a pat first but if that doesn't help, I take it to its formula, then wet food, then litter trey.
Just then I left it at its formula, it drank a little then tracked me down to cry some more. I've taken it to its wet food & its gobbled it down.
Our house is not big & this cat has no idea what it wants. Its just finds me & cries until I work out what it needs then I pat it back to sleep.
It has definatly adopted me as mum. Please tell me this is normal for its age & I have not Inherited the most needy cat in the world. TIA
