Catac Foster Feeding Bottle (25225-V)
Best feeding bottle EVER!
I raise Chihuahuas, this has been a lifesaver litterally. It is easy to handle, the puppies can easily nurse from the long narrow nipple. No breeder should be without it. I too ordered an extra one in the event of a mishap since it is glass. Thank you SO MUCH for having this product available.
I really liked the bottle, it worked really well but it was very thin and broke within the first week of using it, would like to get another but will have to wait for more funds for that kind of expense.

I work in animal rescue and frequently have to nurse orphaned kittens. Although I still haven't mastered the glass bottle, the rubber nipples fit beautifully on syringes, and the babies latch on very eagerly. I highly recommend the product, whether you use the bottle portion or not.
Love Most Everything About This Product
I purchased one of these after I fed a kitten with a syringe, and she took a big breath right after I put some liquid in her mouth. The little soft plastic bottles in the retail stores are useless for a small kitten - the nipple is far too big. I'm currently feeding a kitten, and have been since he was born. Mom is feeding his 2 litter mates, and he just somehow never got a nipple of his own. It's a great nurser, easy to hold, easy to regulate the flow of milk, easy to tell the temperature of the liquid without even putting a drop on your wrist, etc. My only complaint is that I'd love the company to create an alternate set of nipples for neonatal kittens. The ones that come with the bottle are too long - I had to cut the end off so it didn't reach halfway down the kitten's throat. But, other than that, this is a GREAT alternative to either tube feeding - which is difficult for a single person to manage - or feeding with a syringe - dangerous if the plunger sticks and then suddenly comes unstuck. So I'll continue to cut the nipples down to a manageable length - but, all in all, this product has made 3 hour feeding intervals - bearable. And, it's safe enough that even at 3:00 when I'm not exactly at my best - it's a safe way to feed a kitten.
Two Week Old Puppy
Had a singleton puppy that was born 13 days early without the suckling instinct. Mom's milk dried up before he was ready to nurse. Tube fed him for two weeks, and then switched to the Catac Foster Feeding Bottle. It works great. I cut the very tip off the teat and used the valve on the open end and gently pumped it to regulate the flow of milk.
