So LeKitty went into labor Sunday morning and had only one kitten. We were sure that she still had many more inside her and we could feel movement. She was really freaking out and kind of sort of taking care of her baby inbetween trying to get our attention. Nothing at all happened all day long. We took her to the ER vet in the evening and got an x-ray at least three more babies inside. They wanted 1500 dollars for a c-section (this is a whole nother story and I will really go off if I start talking about the price mark up at the ER vet!!I cost me the lives of two babies). Yesterday morning she delivered two more babies which were dead. Perfectly formed just dead. Then labor stopped again. She still had one baby inside and we felt no movement. Our regular vet opened and we took her in. She said that the xray did show one more baby inside and she didn't know if it would be alive but she was going to go into surgery with the attitude that she was delivery a live baby. Sure enough the baby was alive (barely) but they brought her back around and she is still doing fine this morning. Lekitty is having lots of problems mentally though. She is very confused and is trying to nurse her babies but very unsettled. She keeps getting up and is trying to pick her babies up in her mouth very rough. We are watching close and trying to decide if we will need to take the babies and put them with Felina who delivered her babies 6 days ago. We really don't want to do that but these babies are weak ,especially the miracle that was delivered csection, and they need lots of attention. Please send your vibes that LeKitty will be settled and be able to nurse her babies and be a good momma like I know she wants to be.
