Thankyou all so much for your words of encouragement. The babies are doing very well. That sand they were eating has made it difficult for them to use their bowels but the vet has recommended just a little tiny dob of catlax and it seems to be slowly doing the trick.
Lorie mate, thankyou for the snow, you KNOW I'm addicted to the stuff!
Tamme, I'm what they call a vet approved kitten carer. There are lots of us at TCS. I've nursed babies of all ages right from 1 day old so these babies should be fine. I have all the jazz they need like formula, heat pad, cuddles, snuggles, love etc. LOL Ohmygoodness! How could I forget the snugglekitty? They are, at this moment, piled in a heap right on top of their snugglekitty, dreaming away with their full tummies.
Yola, yes, the lady that brought the kittens over is only a couple of days away from giving birth herself so I've got the lady's sister and neighbors looking for Mum so that she can get some vet care.
Nenners, I hope you do get to foster little ones. I don't know how you'll go working full time and getting up for those 3 hourly night feeds! LOL It's so rewarding to see them grow up into beautiful kittens.
Baby is still here and I've found a home for him so he'll be going in 2 weeks when my housemate's boss gets back from holidays. He thinks Fluffy is a gift for HIM and they spend all day frolicking together.
