Welcome to episode seven of Catology: Kitten Lady & Friends, my interview series all about staying curious about cats! This week I'm talking with my friend and colleague Dr. Rachel Wallach, a veterinarian with a special focus in kittens. Dr. Rachel is the owner of Oaks Veterinary Urgent Care in Agoura Hills, CA and is also on the board of my nonprofit, Orphan Kitten Club. We talk about common kitten medical crises and what to do, how better husbandry can lead to better medical outcomes, and how foster parents can find the right vet for their kittens. Many thanks to @ROYAL CANIN for their continued partnership on this educational series!

  • The Vet is talking about triage. What must happen first. Visually assess Vitals Skinny? Dehydrated? Never feed a cold kitten Address temperature (subcutaneous fluids) Provide warm incubato Hypoglycemia (85 to 90 percent of kittens that are hypothermic are hypoglycemic) Extreme hypoglycemic kittens most likely due to an underlying illness. SAFE FEEDING Avoid aspiration, which may be deadly. (It's very painful.) Coughing, rattle in chest, etc Angle kittens head downward include dangling kitten downward. If necessary take kitten to vet for antibiotics. A good suckle from Mom will allow kitten to receive maternal antibodies. ,

  • the more i find out just how fragile bottle babies are, the more i'm amazed that my family's bottle baby lived to a few months shy of 20. my dad found him at 2 weeks in july of 2000. we used an eyedropper and baby formula, per vet recommendation, and found out how to stimulate him. we didn't weigh him every feeding, or anything fancy. we just fed him every couple of hours. he outlived our other cats who had been raised by their mom(s) - his "wife" and their kids (who all pretty much lived over a decade each). if we could do it with no prior knowledge, never even having had a cat before, those of you who have your first bottle babies can definitely rock this now that you have awesome resources like kitten lady. i was glad to have her videos in may of 2019 when a 5-week-old kitten came into my life and stole my heart. she's now 1.5 and a hyper little thing who doesn't like to cuddle, but i wouldn't change her for the world.

  • Hi! Kitten Lady, just a month ago i accidentally watched your yt video where you took care of rosalie from 0 week until she got adopted. Since then, i continued to watch your other videos, and i adopted a kitten which was left by his mama cat. His name is Dolo a legal maxim since i am a law student here in the philippines. When i got him he was just 4 weeks old, i bottle fed him and administered his deworming process on his 4th and 6th week old, all the techniques and proper administration were all copied from your video.. What i am really trying to say is that i really appreciate what you do, and i am influenced by your genuine love with kittens. Keep safe and more powers to you and to your family.

I was a little confused and I have a med background. So enjoy u and all u do!

  • Your videos are one of the only ones that I can get all emotional and smile all the time while watching it, I appreciate you and your husband for taking time and effort to care for all these tiny souls. Even before knowing your channel I would (and still do!) feed street cats every single week, whenever I go to the usual spot I find them they all come running and meowing at me waiting for me to feed them, I even stay long minutes just to give them love... eventually they'll follow me home when I got to go. Wish I could take all of them with me... last year I got a tiny yellow one that sadly was abandoned by his mom as a birthday gift. He is so healthy today and it only has been one year! He loves to sleep by my side and play lots and lots with me and his big brother. Whenever I call his name he will answer me by meowing back! I love my two cats with all my might. I'm currently tearing while typing all of this... Thank you for inspiring not only me but all of the people that watch you ❤️

I didn't know about quarantining them for two weeks first and when i brought the new kittens home from the shelter they made my resident cats sick with cat flu. Lesson learned though. They were all treated and became well quickly. This was a few months ago now and i have learned so much since then .. thanks for these videos. ❤❤❤❤

  • Hi, oh my god, you are doing amazing thing! I think maybe you can help me with some advice/suggestions for a stray cat that I met since March when he was walking around my neighborhood. Last month he started to get closer to me and now he visits my place in the morning and the evening time. I still cant close my door when he is inside and wont be able to take him to the vet, because he is really really sensitive. He would run away quickly when the other people try to be closer. So recently I am thinking about how to proceed all day long. Do you have similar experience?? As for the long-term, I have my business travels a lot next year, I wont be able to bring the cat and I guess he also wont like that. But if he is still not able to accept the others to take care of him, he will live a worse life than before. I am thinking whether I am doing the right thing for this cute cat. Should I try to be with me more or should I let him keep his ability to live alone :( I need help.

    Clyde CarterClyde Carter7 ամիս առաջ
    • Take a damp paper towel and seperate the cats fur and wipe it across the skin. If it comes back red tinted then they have fleas. If you do bath them make sure not to get their head wet! Make a little ring of soap around the neck and bath the body, then use a wash cloth or sponge and gently wash their face (not with much soap on the face, though) and if the cat is older than a kitten then you can just get some flea medication from a vet instead of putting the poor thing through the trauma of bathing.

      Clyde CarterClyde Carter7 ամիս առաջ
    • You’ll know if there’s fleas. Check for flea dirt, you’ll also see them scurrying on the skin. If stable and warm, you can give a bath with fragrance free Dawn or baby shampoo, the fleas will run the head of the cat to escape the water. You’ll know immediately.

      Carrie EmmettCarrie Emmett7 ամիս առաջ
    • Get a flea comb . . . Safari makes a good one and it only costs a few dollars. Then comb the cat carefully and thoroughly. Fleas will get caught in the comb if she has any. Have a dish of soapy water nearby so you can drown any fleas you pull off of her.
