I have raised over 20 kittens by hand you should feed your kitten Evry 4 hours or so. And at night I feed them at 1 am and then I wake up at 7 am to feed them again because 6 hours is the most time between feedings with small kittens. And don't forget you need to take a warm tow-let and wipe there bums until they pee and have a bowel movement or they will die of constipation.

Right now I have five, 2 week old kittens and I am feeding them every 6 hours. I think that I am able to due this because the mother was very good with them and left them healthy and plump. They have good strength and are strong so they have the ability to wait this time. If they do not feed well at any of the feedings I have to try and feed them sooner and will try again within in 4 hours.

You need to feed them every 2 to 3 hours 24 hours a day at 2 weeks! You can't just say that the mother left them plump...they will lose weight if you are only feeding them every six hours. Do some research before you starve those kittens!

I have three 2 week old kittens right now too. I'm in the same boat. We let mama cat out like we do every morning, but this time she hasn't come back. I'm trying to feed them, but it isn't going very well. I'm lost at what to do as well.

Why would you let the mama cat out!??! She probably got killed outside-that's why you shouldn't let them out. Good luck with helping the kittens survive.

Well kristycat instead of being a bitch why don't you try to answer the question.
Obviously her cat is indoor and outdoor so she had no idea that it wouldn't come back for her kittens.
The kittens should be fed about every 4 hours.
It's hard to get them to bottle feed or feed from an eye dropper at first, but they get used to it. Remember to keep them warm because they can't control their body temperature at this age.
