Lala has gone into labor *update* bad news

Lala has gone into labor and given birth to the first kitten, a beautiful black and grey tabby. Its been a long time now and still had given birth to any of the others, she is still purring and beathing heavyly but hasnt had any more contractions. Do i need to be worried? Also Lala wont let me out of her sight, if i try to leave she'll run after me meowing.

Sincerely, Krystle.

Ive just gotten back from the vet and its bad news. Lalas uterus is not functioning properly, she'z gonna get needles to try and get her into labor and if that doesnt work she needs to have a sierian. If she has a siserian the vet is going to desex her at the same time, there is a big chance that the kittens inside her are already dead. Poor Lala, she was way too young and small even the vet said that. Im sooo sad and angry at the same time my heart is breaking. One things for sure, when Lalas owners come back, their gunna be left with an expensive bill.

Sincerely, Krystle.

And now for good news, we called the vet and he said that Lala got another kitten out and its fine, i am so happy! its a grey and black tabby like the first one. They've bin waiting 45 mins and still haznt had the other one come out yet, they said they'd wait another 45mins and if nothing happens they'll do a sesarian. I do say im relieved that there's a glimer of hope that the babys will be ok.

Sincerely, Krystle.

It's always sad when things don't work out as they should, but your cat is in good hands and you at least have to babies to love and cherish I hope it all works out for the best.

It can take some time for newborns to start to suckle. It can take hours. The most important thing is to keep them warm and see if they at least try to find the nipples. As long as they're trying it's OK, but if hey just lay still and do nothing... I'd be worried. Be careful if you hand feed the little one, it's easy to get fluid into the lungs.

She had 3 kittens. But unfortunantly one had to be put down

We took the kitten that wasnt suckling to the vet and he told us that the kitten was missing the roof of its mouth, so there was nothing separating its mouth with its nose and there was nothing that could be done to fix it.

Sincerely, Krystle.
