  • Hi, everybody.

    嗨,大家。

  • When caring for kittens, you wanna give them the most comfortable experience possible, so these are my top five tips for keeping kittens warm and cozy.

    當你在照顧小小貓的時候,你要盡可能讓牠們越舒服越好,以下是我的五個照顧小小貓的訣竅,可以讓牠們過得既溫暖又舒服。

  • The first thing I recommend is a microwavable heating pad, like a Snuggle Safe.

    第一件我推薦的東西是可以微波加熱的墊子,像是 Snuggle Safe 牌子的。

  • You just pop it in the microwave for about five minutes, and it'll stay warm for several hours.

    只要把它放到微波爐裡加熱五分鐘,它就能持續發熱好幾個小時。

  • This makes it really easy for you to transport the kittens with it.

    這會讓你要移動小小貓的時候,比較容易一點。

  • You're not relying on a heating pad with a cord.

    因為你不會是依賴一個要插電的熱墊。

  • So just make sure when you take it out that you feel it to make sure it's warm, but not too, too hot.

    把熱墊拿出來的時候,要確認一下它是不是熱的,但是不能太燙。

  • You can put it in the pad that it comes with. You can also use a blanket to cover it up.

    你可以把它放到它的套子裡面,或是用一條毯子把它包起來。

  • Young kittens can't regulate their own body temperature, so it's really important that you give them access to a heating pad at all times.

    幼貓沒辦法讓體溫維持恆溫,所以讓牠們能一直能使用熱墊是很重要的。

  • It's likely that the kittens will congregate around the heating pad, but you want to make sure that they also have the option to move away from it.

    小小貓們很有可能會窩在熱墊附近,但你還是要確保牠們也能有遠離熱墊的方式 。

  • So don't let the heating pad cover the entire space.

    所以不要讓熱墊占滿整個空間。

  • So the heating pad is mandatory, but there are other things that you can add to that to make them even more comfortable.

    熱墊是必備的,但是還有其他東西是你可以用來讓牠們過得更舒服的。

  • Like here, you can see them using a Snuggle Kitty.

    像是這個,你可以看到牠們正在用一個 Snuggle Kitty。

  • The Snuggle Kitty is a stuffed animal with a battery-operated heartbeat inside.

    Snuggle Kitty 是一種填充玩偶,裡面有電池驅動的加熱核心裝置。

  • These are a great source of comfort if you have orphaned kittens who don't have a mother.

    對於沒有媽媽的孤兒小貓來說,這可以提供他們很大的安慰。

  • All you need is just two AAA batteries inside of the heart, and then you just turn it on whenever it's in use.

    只要把兩顆 AAA 電池放到它的心臟裡,然後有需要的時候把它打開就行。

  • It's going to create a really nice comforting sound and vibration for the babies.

    它會發出一種讓貓寶寶很安心的聲音和震動頻率。

  • When combined with a heating pad, this provides such a nice home base for the kittens.

    當你把這個和熱墊合併使用的時候,就會是小小貓很好的窩了。

  • You'll often see them snuggling it, clinging to it, and sleeping on top of it.

    你會常常看到牠們窩在它旁邊,抱著它、和睡在它上面。

  • Another kitten essential is baby blankets, and I'm not talking about blankets for cats that you buy at the pet store, I'm talking about baby blankets for human babies.

    另一種小貓必備品是寶寶用的毯子,我指的不是寵物店裡面給貓咪用的毯子,我說的是給人類寶寶用的毯子。

  • Something like this micro fleece baby blanket that I got online.

    像是這條我在網路上買的,毛絨的寶寶用毯子。

  • These provide a soft surface for the kittens to lie on, and you can use them to line whatever space the kittens are staying in.

    它提供讓小貓可以依偎的柔軟接觸面,你可以把它們鋪在小貓窩著的任一個角落。

  • Just make sure you change them out every couple of days.

    只要別忘了每幾天定期更換毯子。

  • Another thing you can do with your baby blanket is use it as a swaddle.

    另一種運用寶寶毯的方式是把它當包巾用。

  • You can wrap the kitten in what I call a "purrito," which is basically just a gentle wrap around the kitten with a baby blanket to give them a comforting feeling of being held.

    你可以把牠們包得像是「墨西哥捲餅」只要輕輕地把小貓用寶寶毯包起來就行,這會讓牠們有種被擁抱的感覺。

  • And you can see here that Harissa really enjoys this. She calms down right away, and is actually purring and making muffins.

    你可以看到 Harissa 很享受被包起來的感覺,她馬上就冷靜下來了,而且開始發出呼嚕聲、扭動她的前爪。

  • The next one might surprise you, and that is recycled fur scraps.

    下一個道具可能會讓你感到驚訝,因為我要推薦的是小片的二手毛皮。

  • Anyone who cares about animals is not gonna want to be wearing a fur coat, so if you have one, or if someone in your life has one that they'd like to retire, this is a great way to make use of it.

    任何關心動物的人都不會想把毛皮大衣穿在身上,所以如果你有一件,或是你身邊有人剛好有不再穿的毛皮大衣,這會是一個很好的使用方式。

  • This works well with orphaned wildlife as well as orphaned kittens because the fur reminds them of the comfort of Mom.

    這對於沒有父母照顧的野生動物、或是貓咪都很管用,因為毛皮可以安撫他們,讓牠們覺得好像有媽媽陪在旁邊一樣。

  • In my experience, kittens tend to prefer fur that is a little bit on the long side like this one, and make sure that it's clean and free of any dyes that might be harmful to the kittens if they are to put it in their mouth.

    以我的經驗來看,小貓通常偏好毛皮中毛比較長的部分,就像這邊要確保毛皮是乾淨的,而且沒有任何會對小貓有害的染料,如果牠們把它吃下肚就不好了。

  • Here you can see that one of the kittens is actually trying to nurse on the fur scrap, and while that might seem really sad, it's a nice comfort source for a kitten that doesn't have a mother.

    你可以看到,有一隻小貓正在試著在毛皮上吸奶,雖然這看來讓人難過,但是至少這是一種讓失去母親的小貓能得到慰藉的方式。

  • So this is something I do with kittens that are particularly fussy, or just need a place that they can go to calm down and feel relaxed.

    所以如果遇到比較難照顧的小貓或是如果我想讓牠們能有個地方冷靜下來、放鬆一下,我就會這麼做。

  • I've noticed that kittens really appreciate having something like this, and they'll even burrow into it and fall asleep, creating a little bit of a nest.

    我發現小貓真的很喜歡這樣的環境,牠們甚至會挖洞似地營造出自己的小窩,然後在裡面睡著。

  • Where'd Valentina go?

    Valentina 跑去哪了?

  • Lookin' cozy.

    看起來睡得超舒服

  • One last thing you might want to try if you're trying to comfort kittens is a toothbrush.

    最後一項你可能會試著用來安撫小貓的東西是牙刷。

  • A toothbrush mimics a mother's tongue licking them, so it's another really comforting thing for them if they don't have a mom.

    用牙刷刷小貓的動作其實就像貓媽媽用舌頭舔一樣,它是另一種安撫孤兒小貓的方式。

  • And I'll actually notice that when I start brushing the kittens, they might start to engage in their first grooming behaviors.

    而且我發現,當我開始用牙刷梳小貓的時候,牠們會開始用舔的方式梳理自己。

  • Here you can see that Cholula is actually starting to lick herself, which is what they learn from their moms.

    你可以看到 Cholula 開始在舔自己,這是貓咪會從媽媽身上學到的。

  • So this is a great thing that you can do for them not only for their comfort, but also for their behavioral growth.

    所以這是一件很棒的事,不僅僅是為了讓牠們感覺舒服一點,也是為了讓牠們能學到更多生存技能。

  • Keep in mind that the one thing kittens love more than anything is being with their mama, so if you're dealing with an orphan kitten, the best thing you can do is be a surrogate.

    永遠記得,小貓最愛的就是和牠的媽媽在一起,所以如果你負責照顧的是隻孤兒小貓,你最好要把自己當成牠的乾媽。

  • That's why I recommend giving them warmth, something soft to nuzzle, and a little bit of grooming.

    這就是為什麼我建議要讓牠們感受到溫暖、有柔軟的東西可以磨蹭、還有幫牠們梳理毛髮。

  • There are so many ways to get creative for the little guys, so that they can still have a chance at a full and happy life.

    除此之外,如果你有創意的話,還可以想其他方法來照顧這些小肉球,讓牠們在失去媽媽後還能有機會有個幸福快樂的人生。

  • If you're interested in some of these products and want to know where to find them, I have a comprehensive list of fostering supplies on my website, at kittenlady.org/supplies.

    如果你對上述這些產品有興趣,而且想知道要去哪裡才買得到,在我的網站裡有一個詳盡的表格是關於領養貓咪需要用到的道具的,在 kittenlady.org/supplies。

  • You can go on there and find links to everything you need to help save kittens' lives.

    你可以到那邊找到所有你需要用來拯救小貓的東西的連結。

  • Are you cozy? I think I got a little lipstick on you.

    你舒服嗎?我好像把口紅印在你身上了。

Hi, everybody.
