Feeding the Kitty

Pumpkin refused to nurse from the bottle on his first night at our house which had us really worried. Would he make it without his kitty momma? We bought eye droppers the next day and dribbled milk into his mouth to get him to eat. Once he started drinking from the eye dropper, we tried the bottle again and he soon got the hang of it. In addition to feeding him every few hours, we had to wipe his bottom with a warm wet paper towel to get him to pee and poop like his momma would have done. His appetite was voracious. When he was hungry, he let you know it was feeding time. And if the milk wasn't coming out quickly enough, he got frustrated so we had to squeeze the bottle for him. After eating, I held him to my shoulder and patted his little back to get him to burp, just like a human baby.
