Bottle Feeder Foster Caregivers for Kittens Needed

The BITTY KITTY BRIGADE

Image_201909011503

The Bitty Kitty Brigade is in need of foster caregivers who are willing to bottle feed kittens! BKB will provide training, as well as food/formula, litter, supplies and medical care. You provide the warm space and loving care!

Neonatal kittens ages 0-2 weeks are fed approximately every 2-4 hours around the clock, kittens ages 3-5 weeks are fed every 4-6 hours. This is a great opportunity for those who work from home, are retired or otherwise at home or who have flexible work locations that allow them to stash a small bucket of kittens under the desk (really!)

Once kittens are weaned (5-6 weeks old, typically), they can remain with their caregiver or move to another one until they are adoption age.

Caregivers can join our private Facebook group for support and lots of photo sharing!

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide care for orphaned neonatal kittens and to partner with rescue organizations and impound facilities to improve survival rates.

Description

The Bitty Kitty Brigade (BKB) is an all volunteer, foster-based rescue for orphaned neonatal kittens. We provide around the clock foster care for bottle babies ages 0-6 weeks. Once kittens have been weaned, they are transferred to another foster to be cared for until they reach adoption age.

BKB provides food, litter, supplies and medical care for the kittens. Kittens are dewormed, vaccinated, microchipped, FeLV tested and spay/neutered prior to adoption. We are funded by donations and grants. We rely on the public to help us provide kitten formula, kitten food, supplies and quality veterinary care.

BKB foster caregivers complete several rounds of training prior to receiving their first foster kittens and are paired with a mentor to provide on-going education and support.

Our Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) team, The Birth Control Brigade, follow a process to sterilize community cats, improve their lives and end the reproductive cycle that leads to kittens being orphaned or surrendered to shelters.
