The neighborhood cat adopted us and had her kittens in our house. She had 2 then another one was born some time after that. The last kitten is the smallest one and the first one is the biggest. They are about 7 wks old now and the biggest one has been weaned for a couple of weeks now. The Middle cat followed shortly after. (though they still nurse from time to time...I think for comfort or to help them sleep). The smaller one is the issue, she doesn't want to eat regular food. All she wants to do is nurse. The momma cat doesn't seem very comfortable with this so I am trying "force" her to eat, but without much success. She prefers the milk. What can I do? I'm afraid if I give away the baby she will starve do death without the mom. Also, what's a good time remove them from the mother?
