hi all and can anyone help me please
Hi all I came across this forum whilst looking for some cat/kitten advice and with all the cats I have this sit will now be very handy for me as I dont like to call the vet unless its a health issue/worry out of hours and mind can be set at ease hopefully
Background of problem:
Cat had 3 kittens via vet assisted birth 3 weeks ago tomorrow 1st one took a while to locate/latch onto her nipples, 2 days ago she moved this kitten into a corner on its own and left it - vet advice was to remove and hand rear and wean early with colic meds as was making the loudest noise I've ever heard from a kitten and wouldn't go to sleep.
Since then mums been very over protective (understandably), hissing and going for anyone that goes in the room even for feeding her and seems to be almost constantly feeding them. Today she moved them to a new place in the room and I'm just wondering if I should also remove them and or wean them early? Any help appreciated as mums never ever acted like this
Thanks in advance
