Yip I mean were they were born at 63 days on... if they were born too much younger then perhaps that is why one of them hasn't got any fur? I haven't had any experience with this but perhaps call your vet to be sure?

thanks Dan.

Cats can get pregnant from several tom cats on several encounters. I wonder if the bald baby is younger. If it is, you will need to watch it closely to be sure it eats well and keeps growing.

I think you should call the vet for advice about this.

Congrats!

Yes they were born full time. He is a little weaker than the other two. The only father is my tom cat.

Cabbet....I would have your tom cat fixed. It is healthier for him to be neutered. I would also have your female spayed once she is done caring for these kittens. Unfortunately there is no place where there is a shortage of kittens/cats and it is just healthier for cats to be fixed.

Well, I had one like that. Elle didn't have much hair at all until she was a few weeks old. You said she is weak? Can she nurse? You may have to help her by holding her head up to nurse. I had to do that with Elle. If she starts to roll, as in barrell rolling, you need to get to the vet. Ask your vet about the possibility of a Vestibular Disease. That is a disease that effects the equilibrium. Elle now walks with her head crooked. The sooner you get it, the better, so if she begins to roll, tilts her head, or seems unbalanced/lost all the time, you need to get vet attention. Good luck with your kitties!!!

That sounds like what one of LILOs kittens was doing. He died at 2 days old. He rolled over alot. I would put him up to LILO to eat and he just couldnt. When I first noticed something was wrong with him I picked him up and he was so cold. I couldnt warm him up. He just stayed cold. The next day he died. Lilo had layed on him. I guess either her way of trying to warm him up or she knew he was sick and wanted to seperate him from the other healthy 6 kittens.

His skin is also like a cloth , you know those dogs that have like clothey wrinklely skin. Like that. And he has stripes on his skin but no hair. Would it help if i put up pictures?

Yes it would help if you posted some pictures. We had a kitten like that, Skipbo never had fur in his life - he died at 6 months of age, we could tell he was a bicolour because he had the markings.
