I have done this with a puppy but not a cat. Once I realized that the pup was not breathing I began to massage its chest ( squeezing just hard enough to feel the ribcage compress a bit to get the heart pumping ) and using your mouth to cover its entire muzzle ( nose and mouth ) blow an ever so light breath into its lungs after every 5 or so compressions of the chest. It may not be the correct way but the puppy lived.

Can you carry a newborn kitten?

Well, it all depends on how new this newborn kitten is. If you're talking about just being born a few seconds ago, the answer is NO. A mother cat licks her newborn kitten to get it to start breathing. If you pick up a newborn kitten that's only a few minutes old, you're basically killing it. If the kitten is a few hours or a couple of days old, go ahead and pick it up, that is if you can. A mother cat is very defensive of her kittens. you may get scratched or bitten in the process.

When do you give away a newborn kitten?
