The importance of record keeping for neonatal kittens.

Updated: Jan 27, 2019

One of the most important tasks in caring for neonatal kittens is record keeping! This may seem like a tedious task, but when you are sleep deprived from 2 hourly feeds, it is so easy to forget details and lose track of time.


For kittens 4 weeks and under, the following should be recorded every feed:

  • Weight

  • Amount of formula consumed

  • If the kitten urinated/defecated

  • If the faeces are abnormal (diarrhoea, colour change, blood present)

  • Any medications administered

  • Overall demeanor of the kitten (bright/lethargic)

  • Any other additional observations

By having detailed records, it's much easier to track each kitten's progress, and allows you to accurately assess their health and provide treatment if necessary.
