Lydia doesn't seem to want to take care of her kittens anymore. They all start crying because they are hungry. She will finally lay down to let them nurse, then she starts crying, & gets right back up. Then they cry, she gives in, & lets them start to nurse again, then she cries again gets up & leaves the room. I've tried shutting her in w/ them, Only to check on them, & find her up somewhere where they can't reach her. My guess is it may be baby teeth. Mo took a bite out of my finger last night while I was bottle-feeding him, he bites, pulls, & chews at the nipple too - the bottle, not mama. The little girl got her first taste of water tonight, out of mamas dish, the boys won't try it, & none of them are trying food yet. Lydia seems eager to wean them, but they are still much too young - I think, only 3 1/2 weeks. Is there anything I can do?
