Hi my name is Kristen and My cat had kittens back on august 6th.... Well she had 5 kittens 3 males and 2 females..... at two weeks one of the males died... i figured it was the runt and it just couldn't make it so i didn't think to much of it... i didn't notice it weak i just found it dead... Then last week when the kittens where 3 weeks... my cat had an absest on one of her boobs and it bursted... and it was all open wound... we found out how to take care of it and have been (its almost all healed yeah) well the day that i found her with the open boob... all the kittens had seem to be ok... later i seen one kinda of to the side he seemed a little weak so i said something to my husband about head feeding him... well it was dinner time and had to feed my boys and when i came back just a few hours later the kitten had passed already... i had figured maybe the boob had bursted on him and that it got the fluid in the absest and gotten sick from it. but don't know for sure. so now we had 2 females and 1 male left... the male was the biggest and seemed to be the strongest... we left for the weekend having a friend come over and make sure momma cat had food and water and to clean her boob... well today i went in to check on the kittens and he was not doing much when he used to try to get out of there little contained area i have blocked off (to keep them safe from my kids youngest one is 21 months).... we had to go do a few things and when we got back he had passed... now i only have my two girls.... I don't understand whats going on... my momma cat had seemed to be doing really good with them at first... she still seems to want to be with them and everything... is it that she weeded out the males? of the two females one was smaller then the other when born and now they are about the same size i can only tell them apart cuz of how their fur is... they are all black kittens.... i can't say for sure how much they weigh like everyone else seems to know cuz i don't have a way to weight them at home.. Well this all i'm writing for now... any thing that might make this make a little more sence let me know... anyway i can make sure these two kittens will live? they are 4 weeks old now... so anything let me know...
