   one 4-ounce can of evaporated whole cow's milk

   three egg yolks

   1 part boiled water to 5 parts evaporated milk

   1 can evaporated milk
   1 egg yolk
   2 tablespoons Karo syrup

4-

   3 large or 4 small egg yolks

5-

Mix all ingredients well and strain.  Serve slightly warmer than room temperature.  Before serving, test a few drops on your wrist to make sure the formula is comfortably warm.  Keep unused formula refrigerated at all times.  Store for up to four days, and always check to make sure the formula is still fresh. 

Also Mix 1 drop of human infant liquid vitamins in each kitten's formula.  If the kitten(s) become constipated add 1 drop of vegetable oil or cold liver oil per ounce.

Cow's milk is not particularly healthy for kittens and is missing many vital nutrients; do not continue to use regular milk on kittens.

Never feed a kitten in the air or on their back.
