Bill,
I'll buy 6+ weeks. Bottle feeding is tough but look what you got as a cat.

Hyogen,
Yes, my cats would kill me if I tried. At least yours look good

Yes bottle feeding is demanding and I hardly knew what I was doing, but it was all worth it and we did wind up with a wonderful kitty. I was glad that I only had to bottle feed them for two days. It is very rare, but the kittens had to be delivered by c section. The vet said that the mama cat might not nurse them if she doesn't recognize them as being hers. When we finally got the mom home, she hissed and ran from the kittens. Fortunately, the kittens persisted and it wasn't very long before all was well. I was very relieved. I wasn't cut out to be a mama cat.

Im glad you had mom, as mom and littermates are best for the psychological as well as physical development of kittens.

Bottlefeeding is harder when you have more than one orphan, but kittens and other cats teach eachother good manners to be great pets. It can turn out bad in the long run if it is a single orphan. I had one loving single orphan that I raised 20 years ago who was properly socialized by me.
I also had one orphan that I wasn't able to teach how to play gently as she didn't learn from other littermates. Husband helped make it worse with hand play. She went for blood when playing and turned out defensive/aggressive.
Hubby was banned from any " hand playing" with my current former orphans, they are ours now and very loving.

Smokey was a huge help, He is my neutered male and helped clean and teach the babies manners. I love when he throws himself to the ground like they got him good, even if it is his tail that is being attacked. lol

Bill,
I've been doing this for just over five years and haven't had any of our cats needing C-sections. I like the reaction of Mom, nothing scarier than kittens.

Adrienne,
We've have some cats who loved kittens and did the same as your Smokey.

Meh, That is so much help to be grateful for, but I was frightened of him hurting his nephews and niece at first. he gave them the tough love and they loved that.

My Gremlin who is a few weeks older than our orphaned litter, wanted nothing to do with the kittens. She had an involuntary reaction to the smell of them when she would come to me for affection. She would do the rubbing, purring, sniff a bit and suddenly her own hisses and growls would just happen to her. She would look at me in such cofusion and fear. I think it is because when a mother cat has a new litter she usually drives away the older kittens to make them learn independence. Gremlin just wasn't ready. lol
Everyone gets along fine now, thank goodness. Can't wait for the appointment to fix Gremlin and Fireball a. Gremlin is in estrus now and driving everyone crazy.

I remember worrying a lot about how my Tailspin would take to the new kitten. We kept them apart and let them meet under the door for about 5 days, as soon as we did a little space swapping Tspin was very pushy about wanting to see the kitty. He never hissed, played with the kitty (a little rough) and then sat down and groomed him head to toe.

Looks like you have a new friend and seems pretty confident for one day.

Yeah he's been pretty good so far. Still a little scared, but overall I think he's warming up. Just letting him do his own thing right now to get comfortable.

Mr. Squeak, my big male tuxedo became best buddies with the kittens. I read later that male cats and kittens bond easily. Dot and Mr. Squeak are still best buds.

We had three adult cats and when the kittens were old enough to romp through the house, the adults joined in the romping and for all practical purposes we had seven kittens. Sometimes all seven would run like a stampeding herd of wild horses up and down the hallway.

He looks like he will be a great friend and part of the family.

Yup he finally warmed up today. The one cat isn't too thrilled, but he's the "prince" as we like to say. Been moaning all damn morning. The other one wants to just play with him.

Funny part is he's been sleeping in the end table/box thingy next to my bed, which ironically is the side of the bed the "prince" sleeps under during the day.

Might as well be bunk mates lol.
