Yay!!! How is everyone? Any progress? I did what Goldenkitty did, too... and Sneakers didn't mind at all. All her kittens had huge heads, so they all needed help being pulled out... and since we were at a vet's office for the first two, they went ahead and removed the sac, cut the cord, and stimulated them to breathe for us. I only did that for one because it came right after the one before it and Sneakers wasn't tending to it.
She got a hang of the whole mothering thing a little late... now she's more nervous when we handle the kittens, but she still lets us do what we need to do.
