    Me: “Thank you for calling [vet hospital]. How can I help you?”

    Customer: “I found some kittens. I am trying to get them to eat. They are small and I don’t think they should be away from their mom.”

    Me: “Okay. Are you able to get some milk replacer from the store?”

    Customer: “Well, I bought some kitten food. They won’t eat it. I am trying to get my cat to nurse them.”

    Me: “Is your cat the mother of the kittens?”

    Customer: “No, but I am trying to get him to nurse them. How can I do that?”

    Me: “Him? Your cat is a male?”

    Customer: “Yes, but I thought cats would adopt kittens and raise them.”

    Me: “You want your male cat to nurse the kittens?”

    Customer: “Yes.”

    Me: “Here is the phone number for the local cat foster program. They will be happy to raise the kittens for you.”
