Rose, the mom cat, had 2 that died before we found out she was in labor. They were still dangling. So we ran her to the vets - no IDEA how much this is going to cost since we had to go to the full price vet clinic! Rose had 4 more, but she's too sick & has no milk so we have the 4 home, her still at the vets. So, 4 newborn kittens, 5 nearly 2 week old kittens, a sick momma cat & the OTHER 23!!!! If you can't come & help, at least send prayers/glows/good thoughts!!

Well I hope Rose is feeling better today. Im sorry to hear she got so sick. Are you giving her medicine from the vet. That will help her and make her better. I would have her fixed as soon as you can. Im sending my prayers your way.

thanks Terry I have 23 other cats in the house & they are all fixed, Rose just came in too far along to spay. She is still at the vets, she's too sick to come home & possibly get the ones at home sick, & the babies would really have no chance then. Yeah, she's getting spayed as soon as we can!

Let us know how she is.The poor baby. I have 2 cats and they are my little sweeties. Try feeding the babies with an eyedropper.

Is Rose an old cat? That could be the reason. She's nearing the end of her fertile period, and that could also be why she has no milk. She is going through cat menopause. Hope she gets better. I pray that you have the strength to bear and that you get a windful way to pay like your husband gets a raise.

Oh, no, Rose is a very young teenage mother! And I have no husband to get a raise - I'm semi-retired!

I am so sorry that all of this is happening! Prsyers for Rose & her kitten. I hope everyone will be okay! I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "still dangling" though.

Thanks for the thoughts & prayers, we lost 3 of the little babies today so down to 1. We can just pray that one makes it.

I am sorry about your pet. Cats are so sweet, but I am sure to have a hard time dealing with more than 20 cats. Specially when you need to care for the 4 new born pets. I do pray you can handle things and your pet to recover very soon. I am glad you are caring a lot for your pets. God bless!

LTNS Beauty! Thanks for responding. the thing is that these guys will have to be considered fosters, we just have too many grown cats we are already keeping. Wish one of those grown cats would step up to the plate & help out here!!! @@

I really wish I was close enough to you, Elic, or I would gladly take the newborns or even the 2wk old kittens off your hands till they are weaned at least. I've had good luck bottle-feeding kittens and making sure they go potty and such. But -sighs- all I can offer are my prayers and good luck with them all. You'll need it with the lack of sleep.
