Here is a kitten formula that is better than any you can buy!
I found a new recipe for kitten formula for newborn and very young kittens that don't have a mother. It is from Best Friends magazine the May/June 2009 edition. It is about the Best Friends Sanctuary and it is a great formula for kittens:
Mix well and refrigerate until ready to use. A kitten should eat 7 -15 CC's per feeding.
Warm by placing a bottle of the mixture in a bowl of hot water.

Putting this in my bookmarks. I am always taking in strays. Never know when this could come in handy. Thank you! Thumbs up!
I have another recipe I have used that worked even better and I read this was superior to the one listed above.
In a mixing bowl, mix:
one half cup of evaporated milk,
1 teaspoons of mayonnaise, or an egg yolk,
a drop or two of infant vitamins,
a little squirt of Karo syrup the white kind
If they are dehydrated, I will use homemade pedialyte, which is easily found on the net, and mix it in with this, just a little bit or offer in in a small bowl while they are eating. This really seems to help them grow, I had to hand bottle feed seven of them last month and they really enjoyed this so much. I would put them all in the bathtub on a towel for meals and it was so cute. They just loved lapping it up from the saucers and I would tell the parents who adopted them to supplement their meals with meat baby food and this from time to time. robyn
I have had better luck with the last formula involving mayo and infant vitamins and evaporated milk....they seem to love it and those ingredients are always around!
