for you guys
I dont think that 'some people' are pushing for her to have them now, as much as we are concerned she and the kittens are ok. We have been watching this thread for three weeks now in anticipation, and since we arent there, we dont get the security you are getting from your vet.
Add to that the fact that Dill had a previous stillborn litter, and you can probably appreciate the concern.
As a foster mom, I have seen complications, from mastitis, to narrow pelvis, and yes, I have witnessed a litter that was obviously sired by different fathers (genetic-wise the offspring were impossible to be sired by one tom) having different gestational timelines.
In this particular case, the queen had 8 kittens, four of them died within the first 2 days.
Not trying to scare you... just hoping you understand that we mean well... just concerned readers.
Come on Dill.... we know you can do it!
