Hi, my housemates and I adopted a stray kitten, around 6-8 months, who then turned out to be pregnant. We were a bit worried cos of her age but she had her litter of four kittens 2 weeks ago and they all seem to be doing fine apart from one of them that I'm a bit concerned about. He's smaller than the others and gets pushed around a bit when they're feeding. Also he seems to find it hard to find a nipple. The mother's started to seperate this kitten from the rest of them, putting him just outside the nest, where she will go and sit with him. Is this a sign of rejection or is she trying to give him special care? Would it be sensible to start hand feeding him? Thanks, any help or insight is helpful.
