WE found two abandoned kittens, not more than a day or two old. They are now a week old, but eyes are still closed. I am raising them now and bottle feeding them and doing everything as described. I want to know if a round belly (like bloated balloon) is normal. The one kitten also tends to lick the other under it’s tail. The one being licked has a loose stool and do not ”go” as often as the other. Is this normal?

Round bellies in bottle fed kittens are common, it is a result of meal feeding versus constant nursing that the kittens do in a normal situation.

Be certain to stimulate both of the kittens with a moist cotton ball around the anus and genitals after each feeding to make sure they eliminate well. This mimics the licking of the mother cat caring for her kittens.
