Kitten Season is Here!

Is your cat spayed or neutered?

Are you helping get others fixed in a TNR program?

Spring is when cats traditionally have the most litters of kittens. Kittens are adorable. But the sad reality is that more are born each year than there are homes for, so many end up euthanized in shelters. Even more sadly, there are worse ways that kittens can die. By having your cat spayed or neutered, you help control overpopulation in the feline community. Spaying and neutering also help control several "behavioral problems" caused by the urge to mate.

Many are going a step further to help their "community cats" who live rough by setting up and helping maintain Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs in their neighborhoods. By caring for feral cat colonies, getting them fixed, vaccinated, and returned to their outdoor homes where they're fed by volunteers, you also help control cat overpopulation. While it's harder to change the behavior of people who dump cats to fend for themselves, we can help those cats through supporting our local shelters, rescue groups, and TNR programs. If you don't have time to volunteer, please donate to support them....or buy them something from our Rescue Time section that features specially priced bulk items ideal for shelters and rescue groups.

And if you have kittens to provide for, take a look at our Kittens category. You'll find all the supplies you need to keep your babies happy and get them started on the right paw!

Bottle Feeding Kittens
Newborn kittens without a mother will likely be fed most effectively with a syringe. After about two weeks of age, kittens can be fed from a bottle. But they eat far more meals per day than breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Up to four weeks, feed them every three hours, around the clock. From four weeks, you can cut back to every 6-8 hours, depending on the amount of solid food they are starting to eat. By 5-6 weeks of age, most kittens are eating mainly soupy solid food and no longer need to be fed by bottle. Mix a little of their formula with solid food at first, then plain water, to wean them.

It's a good idea to slightly underfeed kittens rather than overfeeding them. If they get too full, they'll start to inhale the formula and can develop pneumonia. Overfeeding can also cause bloat and diarrhea...never a fun thing! Feed smaller meals more frequently. You can tell when they're hungry because they'll be crying, moving their heads from side to side, and trying to suckle on anything nearby that seems like it might be their mother.

Make sure that the hole in the nipple is small enough so that the kittens won't inhale the formula. You can use a heated sewing needle to pierce the nipple, making two small holes in it so that only a few drops of formula come out when you hold it upside down and shake it. If milk starts bubbling out of the kitten's nose, the hole in the nipple may be too large.

Kittens should never be given cow's milk. Cats are lactose-intolerant and it will give them diarrhea. Cow's milk also does not contain a complete range of nutrients needed by kittens. If you are bottle-feeding kittens, always use a formula specifically designed for kittens to ensure that they get proper nutrition. Mix your formula just before feeding to make sure it's fresh. Dissolve the powder in boiled water, then let it cool until it's slightly warmer than room temperature. Check the temperature by testing a couple of drops on your wrist.

Feed the kittens while they are resting on their stomachsnever on their backs like a human baby, or the formula may go into their lungs and give them pneumonia. Take a little of the formula and wet the outside of the nipple, then insert it in the kitten's mouth (never down the throat), applying enough pressure to the bottle to release a drop of milk. The kitten should begin to suckle on the nipple and draw formula from the bottle at its own pace.

Once finished, you'll need to burp each kitten by patting it gently to release trapped air swallowed during nursing. Failure to do this could lead to uncomfortable bloat or colic.

Discard any uneaten formula and sterilize the bottle in between every use. This is especially important for kittens who were orphaned from birth, as they never nursed on their mothers in those critical first 48 hours to get the colostrum that boosts their immune systems, so they are more susceptible to bacterial infections.

Patriotic Flag Kitten T-shirt
Sizing for The Mountain T-shirts
Click to enlarge image(s)

This little tabby kitten is wrapped in an American flag, gazing out at you with adorable blue eyes! Design is printed on a navy blue hand-dyed cotton T-shirt offered in sizes Small through 5XL. 

After just one wash you will not know where the print ends and the shirt begins. The unique printing process used for this shirt actually pulls the dye color out of the shirt and leaves the ink color behind, essentially dyeing the cotton with the ink.

Shirt features an over-sized relaxed fit, with reinforced double-stitching on all seams. After dyeing they are washed and dried, so they arrive to you comfortable, pre-shrunk & ready to wear.

This heavyweight cotton T-shirt will last you years and years. It's made of 100% preshrunk cotton (even the thread that holds it together is cotton). If washed according to the label instructions, in cold water, not only will your shirt stay at the same size as when you purchased it, but the print will remain vibrant for years to come.

In a time when many companies are grappling with how to reinvent themselves as “green” The Mountain has always worked in a way that respects the environment. The cornerstones of being green for are the materials they use to manufacture their t-shirts. From day one they have always used the highest quality natural materials to create their T-shirts.

They start with a white t-shirt made from 100% natural USA cotton. Then, to color the garments, they use fiber reactive organic dyes to create a wide spectrum of dye colors that are inspired by nature. Next their t-shirts are printed with environmentally friendly water-based inks. Most screenprinters use solvent based inks made primarily of plastic (petroleum) that have a rough feel and contain toxic phthalates.

While many printers are trying to kick the chemical habit and learn how to use waterbased inks, The Mountain is light years ahead of them. They are literally pioneers of using water-based ink and have perfected its use to create photo-realist imagery that is not attainable by other screen printers. Being “green” to The Mountain means being mindful of your choices, which have a direct impact on the environment and future generations.

Available in unisex adult sizes S-5XL. Click on the sizing chart image above to see the dimensions of each size.

Please keep in mind these beautiful T-shirts are custom made and hand-dyed, so please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.

Shipping on this shirt is a flat $6.95.

About OldMaidCatLady.com

We're a small business, founded by a genuine old maid cat lady who loves her cats the same as if they were her children, just like you do yours. All products are shipped directly to you from our suppliers; we don't maintain any inventory. This eliminates double shipping, warehousing and staffing that would drive up costs, allowing us to price our items as reasonably as possible. When it comes to shipping, we charge you only what our suppliers charge us to ship the items to you. Those retailers who offer you "free" shipping are only raising their prices to cover the cost of shipping, and we'd rather be honest with you about it. If our suppliers include shipping in the prices of the items, we offer the same to you. We try to treat all our customers the way we'd like to be treated ourselves, and appreciate your taking the time to get to know us a little.
