Orphan Kitten Formula

On the farm we sometimes have to take over, and become 'mommy' to our animals. In this case, a family friend had some kittens, 6 all together.  Mommy was probably a year old and this is a lot for a seasoned veteran, let alone a mother cat that is so young.  We have used this Newborn Formula for kittens, puppies and in a pinch calves.

2c. 2% milk
1c. half & half
1 egg
1Tbls white Karo corn syrup

Mix well. Warm to feed. Use and eye dropper or syringe.  Store in the refrigerator. It will separate so mix well before each feeding. This will keep according to the dates on your milk and/or half & half.
