Disinfect the scissors as best you can. Look for some kind of thread, disinfect that. Tie off on two sides somewhere in the middle of the cord and cut the cord the the middle of the ties. Bring baby to belly and hold her near a nipple until she latches on!
The funny thing is, this is an example of how our demographics have changed in the U.S. Fifty years ago, most people had at least some connection to the farm life, and most people had some knowledge of the natural way things worked. My grandfather had a farm in Michigan, and I think I was 5 the first time I saw kittens born.
yeah I will. I wish I hadn't thrown out all my KMR bottles. but I'm sure she'll latch on to a nip. well if it's a girl. I haven't checked.
She's pure white though and her hair looks long to me?!
Don't count on sexes, color and hair length unless it's patently obvious! Give it a couple of days before you sex them...they're all swollen right now and unless you've delivered a few litters, don't sex them! I've had more than a few litters and can still get my sexes wrong!
