bottle babies

Well there goes my break from fostering for a few weeks. My cousin found these three trying to nurse on a deceased mama. We think she passed away birthing as there are only 3 and the umbilical cords are all attached still. One has a tiny head, and another has a deformed looking face. We'll see as they grow if anything is permanent or if it hurts them. So far they've survived the first 24 hours and are screaming louder than donkies at feedings

Two black males, one dilute calico female

Bless their little hearts, I hope that it all turns out ok.

RIP Momma.

They're all very cute. It's so sad their mama died, but now they have a new mama who will take very good care of them. You're an angel.

They're doing great! One definitely has some airway complications, we're waiting though to see if he grows out of it. His nares are tiny and he's aspirated twice already without rushing the bottle. Luckily a vet once taught me a quick solution for choking kittens, grip firmly but not squeeze, hold fingers around shoulders with the head facing away from you. And swing once between legs (mind the floor!). After that initial jolt they start to snorkle and snuffle and a bit of vigorus rubbing helps them cough the rest out.

Poor little ones, I hope they all pull through!

Any chance you can get a decent picture of all their faces? It might be good to document...plus then when they're bigger you can send the baby pics with their adoptive family

...I may show Muffin and Doran baby pictures of themselves and make a big fuss telling them how cute they were when they were tiny. They LOVE it.

aw, glad they are doing good! I used to work in a vets office and we did an emergency c- section on a dog. We had to do the same maneuver with the puppies to get them breathing, since they were under the same anesthesia as the mom. Scary but it works!
