GNC Pets Premium Milk Replacer Cat Formula
Literally a lifesaver
First, thanks to the other reviewers for helping us choose the best product for our rescue kitty! She was no more than a month old when we found her, half-starved, and we were worried about what to feed her. She's now two months old, healthy as all get-out, and the vet says she's "doing beautifully." Easy to mix, even in the middle of the night when you don't even know your own name.

I foster underage kittens, which I rescue from kill shelters. This product is amazing if you have to feed a baby every 2-3 hours, even in the middle of the night. You just open a new can, pull up the syringe and feed the baby or babies. I can also put it into the fridge and then put it in the syringe in the microwave for about 6 seconds and then shake it (make sure to check the temp on your forearm before you feed). It's a great product...much easier than powder and great for travel as well.

I recently rescued a stray cat abandoned by her mother. My calculation is that she was about 1 month old to 6 weeks. As soon as I started giving her this milk the progress on her health, demeanor, happiness and growth was amazing. She has been with me for almost 2 months now, and has grown to be strong, playful, smart and she absolutely loves this milk. Her coat is beautiful. Although I have her on a combination of dry and moistened dry organic kitten food now (which I also buy at PetSmart), she will always ask and expect her milk after feeding. So she gets between 1 to 2 teaspoons of the same, with each feeding.
It is also excellent to use on top of the dry food to help them transition in to eating such. They will lick the plate.
I have not tried the powdered version of the same, only the canned. I keep it refrigerated and and warm it up for her at room temperature by using a children s medicine syringe dispenser and placing it in hot water until it reaches the desired temperature.
I highly recommend this product for kittens.

I have had excellent results with this product. I have fostered 8 orphan kittens from newborns to 2 weeks old over the past 5 years and this is my go-to food for my babies. They love it, digest it well, no upset tummies and no bowel problems. I have found it easy to mix in the wee hours, in the dark, when I'm half asleep. I mix it with a spoon first to break up the big clumps and then shake it in a jar with a lid until it is creamy and smooth, no lumps! We tend not to have leftovers as my adult cats are only too happy to clean up what's left behind! I really cannot recommend this product enough, I trust it.
