How to properly scruff and restrain your kitten

A helpful video showing proper restraint techniques for your foster cat/kitten.

Giving your foster medication
You want to take your time administering medication to your foster animal. Typically you would simply scruff your foster kitten to give them oral medication (See restraint video above). You can also use a towel, as demonstrated in this video, if your foster animal is a little tough to handle.

Administering eye medications
It is important not to touch the eye when administering medication. This could result in an injury to the animal.
