Litter size - Page 2

post #31 of 46
Aww I'm so sorry about the little one who couldn't be saved.R.I.P.Sweet little angel

Aww Alice will hopefully be ok with the kittens,she will need time to recover from the anaesthetic,thats probly why she's not paying them much attention,she will be very tired.
When she recovers from her anaesthetic she may have a bit of constipation though,
so keep your eye out for her straining too hard

I'm so glad all the rest of the kittens are doing well

Welcome to the world little ones ,May your lives be full of love and happiness always

Everyone is doing well. Alice is awake now and just ate a TON of wet food mixed with a little KMR. She is cleaning her babies like it is her JOB! She's making sure she gets their butts too, which is good, because I'd rather not do that! I'm still trying to get them to nurse. Only two of them have figured it out...but they all drink from the bottle, so I can keep getting nutrition in them. Alice is being a wonderful mom...I just hope her babies learn to nurse.

Aww, they sound precious. I have to keep convincing myself that I do not want kittens... I doo not want kittens... I do not want kittens... Do you know if any looklike they'll be long haired?

No, Momma has very short hair and they all look short-haired to me. I'm uploading pictures now, so check back soon!

BTW, all babies are now nursing...thank goodness! Alice is being a wonderful mom, and I'm so happy that everything has worked out finally.

And maybe you want to get kittens, but you certainly do not want your cat to have kittens. After this experience, I don't think I'll ever get pregnant either! The vet bill was $750, and poor Alice is SO skinny now. Plus, she had to have surgery, which is risky. I wish that whomever owned her before had spayed her. She's spayed now though, and she'll never have to go through this again.

Aw...I just got here - I've been busy for a while, but I love your story, and your dedication to Alice. Poor baby. I'm glad she has you. Our Elsa was found under a trailer, pregnant, and had 8 babies at our house, so I know how you're feeling there! Congrats on the babies, and RIP for the poor little one who didn't make it.

Alice one day before having seven babies:



The six survivors (3 black female, 2 black male, 1 orange tabby male):



The little black one with the white spots



So hungry (note Mom's shaved belly and c-section scar...ouch)

Poor Alice, she's probably exhausted. And you... You're probably exhausted too. Hugs for you and your babies!

They are ALL successfully nursing! I keep feeding them a little KMR from time to time though...they can't always reach the nipples with 6 of them crowding around her. I'd hate for one to go hungry! She's in the bathroom now; she has 4 nursing around her and 2 resting. I'm so glad they're doing OK. More pictures to come as they get older!

Sully if you scroll down to the bottom of the page you can start a new thread where
it says ' new thread' and ask all the questions you need for your baby girl.
That way you will get the answers you need rather than being confused by other
peoples answers.

I know it's a bit late to respond and am sure Alice has had her kits long ago. Hope all went well. But, what they say about size, age, number of pregnancies, etc. I'm not sure. I have one girl (Moon Pie, an abandoned cat in my neighborhood). I should give up the ghost on calling her "stray". Anyway, she has had 2 litters (that I know of). She is currently caring for her latest litter born last Thursday. Moonie is probably around 5 years old and she's small (about 7 pounds). This latest litter, she was absolutely massive. I thought she would blow up. Gladly, she didn't but did give birth to NINE KITTENS!!!! I have never seen so many and wouldn't have figured her big enough for that many. She didn't seem much smaller last time and only had 3 So....it only goes to show. There really is no telling. One thing is, you really can't even guess what the babies will look like unless you have a good idea who daddy is.

will you be getting her spayed now that she has decided your home is her home, once the kittens are old enough.
