3 Bottle-Baby Kittens Filling Up Their Bellies!

These three adorably tiny kittens were abandoned by their mother and rescued by a kind woman who is bottle-feeding them so they get big and strong.

The thing is, the kitties are tiny and those bottles are kind of tough to get the hang of! They're doing amazingly, though, and being cute about it, too!


This was just taken a couple weeks ago and she posted an update Monday saying that the white-faced kitten (I'm assuming the on our far left) is now eating big-girl food, but the others still insist on sucking away on their bottles. Good babies!

Thanks to Cute's friend, Victoria, for sharing this cute bottle-fed kittens video with us!

  4. Awwww, very cute. The publicist told me that she once had to bottle feed 7 kitties when the momma cat (it was a feral cat she was feeding) got hit by a car.  She said it was challenging but the male person helped her

  8. I think they are kind of propped up against her arm in her elbow. Looks like it to me anyway. :)

  9. Not fair! Now I have to check out baby kitten videos for the next two hours because you've sucked me in and I can't resist!

    Of course, nature's way of feeding these babies is for them to be on their stomachs. However, when I feed them from a bottle, I usually hug them up against me in a vertical position, with the bottle tipped up slightly to prevent air from going through the nipple. They catch on pretty quickly. And when they DO ingest air, you can just put them up on your shoulder and  pat them, just like with a human baby, and they will burp it out.

    Those little kittens are adorable! Bright little eyes, sweet little faces, BUT, excuse me for being a spoilsport, when you embark on being a kittenmom, learn the correct way to feed them: the way their mother does, on their tummies. Those little kittens are lucky they did not aspirate formula into their lungs, which would have dire consequences. They are fragile creatures.

  11.  I agree being a foster mom for kittens they should always be fed with the head forward, aspiration of formula can cause death. This may look like an easy way to feed all at once but it is better to feed one at a time and hold in sitting position with head forward. They are cute tho..but should be fed correctly. .

  12. Unbelievably cute.  And to watch over and over.  I fully agree that they should really be in a vertical position and maybe fed one at a time.  Been there and done that with even smaller ones when the mom got mastitis and could not feed 9 babies - painful for her as well, but a great deal of work and successfully.  These babies are just so, so adorable.

  16. so cute.... my friend just spent the last 5 weeks with a baby that was dropped off on her porch and still had an umbilical cord.  She bottle fed and the kitty had to be the other way, belly down while feeding.  Like if they were with their mother they would be belly down.

  17. Yes, I agree with "belly down". That makes sense. You'd think they could choke on their backs.
    I could kissss those wet little mouths.....
