You are doing such amazing work with the ferals. Im so impressed. Dealing with Moms and kittens can be so stressful! And so much work! I think your right about age being the factor of not being attentive to her kittens. Sad but true. Those kittens would of met a horrible death if you had not intervened. Great job!
Its hard, stressful and sometimes very sad work, but so worthwhile!
I have some pictures from yesterday, most are of the girls since I have a friend who wants one of them when they are ready.
Little dilute tortie girl, from Tess' litter
Torbie girl, found yesterday. Trying to convince the DW that we NEED to keep this one
Orange and white female, found yesterday
Solid orange male, from Tess
One of the sick little boys from Tess, doing wonderful now (he's the loudest lol) but still skinny and small
The other sick little boy is worse, we weren't sure if he was going to make it through the night, but he did. He has one of the worst "kitten colds" (I'm not sure what they are actually called, but its sneezing, goopey eyes, ect) so we are treating that. His eyes have improved ten fold overnight, just slightly runny at this point. But his nose is ridiculously runny, to the point where if her don't wipe it every 15 minutes or so it runs down into his mouth
We are going to start giving all the kittens a liver broth today (mainly the two sickies though) to hopefully gets some extra fluids and good stuffs into their bellies
I will get pictures of the rest sometime today, they are all orange boys with varying degrees of white
