Abandoned kitten- I know nothing about kittens near Park Ridge. This kitten has been crying for it’s mom since yesterday. Can anyone with experience help me know what to do or even better take it? Rice heating pad inside pillow case for now. Going to store for milk replacer.

We found one last month. He was only two weeks old. Bottle fed every few hours. He’s probably hungry and that’s why he won’t stop crying. YouTube the crazy kitten lady. She’s full of good info. Has a website too.

Amanda Izzi this might be a sibling! He has similar eyes as the kitten we helped!

There was another kitten post recently in here, maybe an hour ago. There was an injured kitten in the area. I wonder if these are related

Do NOT just give it to anyone. Many do not have good intentions.

I took the one I found to Blue Perl in Northfield at the recommendation of my aunt who owns a veterinarian clinic. Her clinic was closed.

You need to stimulate it to go potty as well after each feeding.

They love to be snuggled and fed quite a bit at that age. Keep giving the milk replacement. If he/she won't take the syringe, they also have bottles.

Didn't read other Comme ts, but I had a new kitten who weighed 12 Oz and I had to become it's mother. The worst adive if given is let it sleep with you. Had to droplet feed him every 3 hours, he was in the bathroom on a dog bed with a hot water fill up thing, we had a stuffed animal cat with a clock that actually ticks (hard as hell to find). The crying lasts about 4 weeks. They have to feel confined. Squished. the only way I'll ever get a new kitten is if I can do that again because our cat was like a dog went to everyone the doorbell rang ran to the door and played catch. So of you are overwhelmed, I know alot of other people said they would take it, I have real life experience X2 with a kitten that small! Good luck!

He’s so cute! You need to keep him warm and get kitten food for him. I wish I can take him but my landlord will only allow me to only have one pet. Maybe I can ask around.

You also have to help him/her defecate. Ask a vet how to do it. We saved more than one fur baby over the years. Good luck.
