We'll Jillian went into labor on the 18th & had 3 kittens & then stopped contracting. We knew she had 4 kittens Because she had 2 ultrasounds to confirm her safety for birth. We'll we ended up taking her in for an oxytocin shot which didn't work, So they did an x-ray and the last kitten was laying sideways across her spine at which time the vet said the kitten was dead. So they said C-section was our best bet. I left her there with her 3 kittens & asked the vet to call as soon as the surgery was over, Because I wasn't going to be sleeping until she was safe. They said the worst that they could see happening was a spay, Big deal I wanted my cat to be ok so spaying wasn't terrible. I got home and got the phone call an hour later with good news and bad...Jillian had passed away after surgery But the kitten was alive . Jillian was my cew persian. So I quickly went to pick up the babies & Jilli, With her first three kittens being blue & white & dilute calico, and the vet not telling me the color of her 4th, They told me she left me a gift. They uncovered the babies and there snuggled in with it's siblings was an all white kitten... Thank Goodness for them keeping me so busy. They are eating wonderful but I did change their formula from kmr to just born & now they have bloody diarhea right after the switch, I am so scared to lose any of them & the vet said it was probably just change in diet. Does anyone have any suggestions? I really appreciate it.
