I am SO PROUD of Misty. After everything, she is being SUCH a good mum. At times, I could be sitting in the living room and I hear her call me, and I go and see that she's having trouble settling with the little ones to suckle, so I help her get positioned and then leave her to it. I love the fact she asks for help, it seems so human really, learning to be a mum. Last night one of the little ones was trying to scamble over the front edge of the box and rolled back, Misty looked up at me meowed, I picked him up put him back and then made the front higher. It was psychic communication, nothing less!!LOL
The update is that both the kittens are doing well (fingers crossed), they are suckling on their mummy and getting suplemented feeds from us every two hours, but they seem to be less eager for those, than they were yesterday evening. All through the night whenever I got up to feed them, they were getting harder and harder to feed.
I spoke to the vet who asked me if they were ever mewling while suckilng or searching and mewling for another nipple. They're not, they seem happy enough, most of the time ending up falling asleep at the nipple, or after a good bath from Misty. We're still going to keep the extra 2 hourly feeds for now, I don't want to stop and then regret it later. They take what they need and I don't mind getting up every 2 hours....yawn... LOL no really I actually enjoy those moments, feeding them, with Misty tentitively watching over them. They're so gorgeous.
