On Monday 20th April my cat Pepper gave birth to 5 kittens. Sadly 3 were born dead but 2 I managed to save. Pepper never done what she was meant to do, she never broke the bag or ate the placenta or none of that, I contacted the vet who adviced me what to do, I saved them both, because she never done any of this they didn't start to feed, I kept prompting them to feed as the vet advised me but they never latched on so I had to intervene again wich my vet provided me with all the food and equipment I needed, they both started to feed fine but just yesterday when I went to feed the boy I could't find him, straight away I knew he was dead, I moved Pepper out of the way and found that she had laid on him casing his death, I felt terrible apart from the feeding process she was brilliant with them but they just couldn't get used to latching on to there mother. So now out of 5 there is only one, a liitle girl who was feeding fine but now today she is not eating again, just like the little boy, I don't what to do I spoke the vet and they advised me that the some litters just don't make it but I can't except that. This has been one of the most cruelest moments in my life that I never want to visit again, I am now going to get Pepper spayed, I am sure this is an experience she doesn't want to visit again. Any advice on the litlle one that is still going, it would be great Thank You.
