Emergency Kitten Milk (The Gloop)
Ideal for kittens that are not flourishing and weaning time

12 oz. boiling water
1 envelope unflavored gelatin

Dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water, and add:

1-12 oz. can evaporated milk
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
1 tablespoons light syrup (Optional be sparing with sugar in a kittens system as it can increase bad bacteria in the gut so can leave this from the recipe
1 egg yolk(not whites) Uncooked White of egg is bad for cats can take essential vitamins from the body

Mix well in mixer. Place in covered bowl and store in refrigerator. Warm a small amount for feedings. This will keep for about 7 days.

It adds between 15-20 grams on kittens a day.

I seem to remember being told that mayonnaise was not good for kittens (apparently my now 8 year old Tazzie Fourpaws had to be rushed to the vets as a 8 week old kitten having eaten a prawn/mayonnaise butty his breeder had left on a table when answering the phone. He was actually pretty poorly (continuous vomiting) and had to be kept in overnight and the vet had told the breeder that kittens should never ever be given mayonnaise (not that he had been given it as such but rather helped himself!). Mind you it is more than likely he was perhaps just allergic to it.

We had to supplement our current litter and I was spending ages making up the RC milk which the kits weren't that fond of and ended up, after a tip from another breeder, using diluted evap every other feed and just occasionally adding a teaspoon of honey to it. The kits really thrived.

Thanks for the tip on not using mayonnnaise...that is worth knowing as these old remedies have been about for a long time whilst knowledge gained has moved on... I put honey in my cats milk as it is a natural antibiotic...Penny :D

I feed my kitty a teaspoon of something like this every couple of days; she absolutely adores it! :D It's just used as a treat, though, as she doesn't really like regular treats. I found the receipe in a cat cook book (a mixture of geletine, evaporated milk, mayonnaise, and yoghurt), called a "Kitten Smoothie." I pour the mixture into icecube trays and stick it in the freezer, then defrost in the fridge overnight one at a time.

Must admit, it smells yummy! :lol:

Hya would this be any good for kittens that are 2 or 3 days old? I know of someone who's kittens are struggling (mum wasn't very motherly at 1st) but they are only 2-3 days old, they are losing weight and she is topping them up

No I think it will be too rich.
Lactol, Cimikat or tinned evaporated will be best.
