    You can put a drop of vanilla extract on the moms nose and the baby and if she still rejects, try intruducing kit to foster mom, after putting drop on her nose and her kits. If this is her first litter she may be just confused. Best to try to foster out with another new mom, best of luck!! D

    I'm late but wanted to say thanks and bless you for helping these kitties. My guess is that this baby will turn out to be very special. Hugs, Jules

    Now for the important question: What are you going to name this kitten?

    It's kitten season @ Canoe's house!

    I know you're probably doing this already, but nursing "queens" should get kitten food themselves, esp since these gals are so young. Maybe even mix some of the KMR or Katsip milk w/their food.

    Great job, it's a lot of work!!

    Hi, came upon this thread just today...Brava to you and your family for taking in all the kitties
    Went through something like you did. Mother cat abandoned her 2 newborns and my self and my S.O. took shifts feeding the two of them from a bottle....Great way that I spent my vacation, smile, but I would do it again.
    I am glad your post had a happy ending.....

    He's "The Great Wallenda" or WallE for short. Only his foster mom will know why he was named after a famous trapeze artist.

    Sounds like everything turned out good. How did he get the name of WallE?

    I've been lurking on this thread, half afraid to find out that the little one didn't make it. (I can handle just about any human emergency.......it's animals I have the tougher time with.) But now that all seems to be well, let me say CONGRATULATIONS to the OP and Wall-E!!!!! Great name, BTW!

    If Mommy Cat refuses to nurse a healthy kitten, pet kittens bodies from another litter and thier Mommy Cats nose with a scented perfume or body spray, do the same to abandoned kitten then place baby into the middle of the litter allowing foster kittens to crawl all over it. Mommy wont be able to scent out her family from the foster. We did this a few times with our cats with good results.

    Well, as I said the great Wallenda was a trapeze artist...and Walle was swinging from his umbilical cord as mom jumped all over the furniture and cupboards trying to get away from him. Not with the greatest of ease, but he certainly landed with a flourish.

    The mental pictures are priceless!! HAHAHAHA~~~

    I've had to play kitty midwife more than once........I can imagine the scenario all too well.:chuckle One of my cats didn't want me to leave her while she was in labor; the second I looked like I was going anywhere, she got up and tried to follow me. Finally I HAD to go to the bathroom..........and here came Mindy, dragging a half-born kitten after her and meowing like crazy, as if to say "Hey, look what I did!!"

    I had a cat that jumped up and swung around when she had a kitten attached. What color is the little sweetie?
