I will post this on this board because it seems to be the most used and I need advice as soon as possible but feel free to move if necessary.
Basically my mum has had a few feral cats living in her back lane and on her shed for years and she feeds them. A while ago when the mum one gave birth the rspca came and took her, gave her the op and put her back again (one of the neighbours informed the rspca they were there). Now one of the kittens has grown up and had its own litter! This morning my mum found 3 kittens in the rabbit hutch (rabbit wasn't there) and mother cat was no where in sight. They were freezing cold and not moving so she my mum brought them indoors and warmed them up. They were literally born over night, cords still attached, covered in 'stuff' and one had a bag half on. After getting them warm and wriggling my mum put them back hoping the mum cat would come look after them. When my mum got home this evening they were stone cold again and not moving at all. Waited a while keeping an eye to see if mum cat would come and she still didn't so my mum brought them inside again.
She did some research when she first found them and subsequently bought some goats milk just in case. Now I have just been down my mum's for the last 2 hours helping her get them warm and wriggling again. Sadly only 2 have survived, but those two look fairly fine. Obviously, having no experience of bringing a baby cat into the world neither of us have any idea what to do other than what we have read on the internet. So far, now they are warm, we have tried feeding them the goats milk (at body temp) through a syringe. I'm not sure how much they actually drink and how much goes everywhere else, they also seem to suck the milk up if i squirt a little on my hand. Any suggestions on what to do next? How much milk should they be drinking? I have read every 2-3 hours, is this right? what else do we need to do. Being the time of night cannot call rspca or vet or anyone. Also, in the morning, if we rang the rspca what would they do with them? If they would just kill them I am not ringing them! I have weighed them and they are 3.25oz and 3.5oz. Is this normal? I was planning on weighing them daily (if they are still with us) and read they should increase by 0.5oz a day. again, is this correct?
If you have read all of this thanks and any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
