I am new to this entire moma cat thing. My "queen" had 7 kittens on the 24th. 6 have died. I am not sure why. They appeared to be malnourished and possibly suffocated.I hope I made the right decision by bringing the last kitten in. It is eating very well, and has a hearty appetite.The mama cat is only 7 months old herself. I was unaware of her pregnancy when my step daughter gave her to me. As for the kitten care I am giving my newest baby Jonah, (which means "to live") about 5-7 cc's of the kitten formula every 2-3 hours. It's bowel movements and urine look pretty good according to websites I have visited. I keep a bottle of warm water in it's nest, and it seems to be doing well. I mostly need advice from someone who has more experiance than myself. Raising newborn babies and newborn kittens are two completley diffrent circumstances.
