Bonnie's Kittens Thread (updates, pics, also why you should SPAY your cats!)

post #1 of 71
Thread Starter 
I'm taking care of a kitty named bonnie. She had kittens on wednesday and was brought to my house on thrusday. She is one stressed out kitty right now that doesn't want to be a mommy. I'm having to force feed her so she can produce milk for the babies, but it looks like we are going to have to start at least partly bottle feeding them.

The kittens are:
Cally the calico she is 3.3oz today
Hally the tortie she is 4.1oz today
and Maui the black kitty is 3.5oz (I think, i'll have to weight that one again.

Pics coming soon. they are all dirty because she isn't doing a good job on cleaning them, so i guess i'll be bathing them to a wet wash cloth.

Kittens do drop a little bit of weight after birth, I hope your kitten will be OK. My prayers are with you. I know what you are going through.

val you keep those little ones warm okay? Please know (as we have discussed) they are not out of the woods yet and won't be for some time. If you can get Mom healthy and she can start nursing again, that would be the best thing, they need her milk, but if she is sick the milk will be tainted depending on what is wrong with her. The not eating and the mucous in her stool has me concerned so were it me I would bottle feed those babies every 2 hours. Is mom grooming them or are you stimulating them?

When you wash their faces, use a cotton ball soaked in warm water, get the big cotton rolls and break off a new piece for each kitten. Wash them gently and don't leave them wet. Invest in a pet heating pad and put it down in the box with the kittens under a soft towel to help them stay warm.

Best of luck, you know how to reach me. I am praying this family makes it

Thanks hissy. We are trying to keep everyone warm and the little calico got a cotton ball bath last night. The mom seems to be making them go potty but she isn't cleaning them good. Mommy stopped drooling and now has runny eyes and is stuffy. I think she has alittle cold. She seems to be getting better. I'm hoping she gets better soon because her babies need her more then anything. Although I think they are starting to think I'm mom. When ever i picked up snowwhites kittens they would scream, but these kinds just snuggle with me. I'm so worried about them.

Val, it is nice of you and hubby to take this family in. You'll give them the best care you possibly can, and we will send you guys Board Magic.

I'm praying for the entire family to pull through this. Good luck and keep us posted on how they are all doing please.

thank you, I'm scared we are going to lose the two little ones. Maybe she is ignoring them because they are sick? Although she isn't doing such a good job with the tortie. I just want them to grow up to be big kitties I think i'm just going to start taking them to work with me. If bonnie doesn't want to be a mom. then I will be one!
