Well, we are pretty sure that Mims is pregnant. But there is still a chance that she isn't, she is getting bigger and starting to show a little bit. And her nipples are getting pink and a little bigger but are still pretty small. But, she doesn't like me touching her stomache so its kida hard to tell. And since she is gonna have him what do I need? I know that she needs a place to have them, so we picked out a nice quiet corner in my room. The other animlas aren't up there so she has peace. And just incase she isn't feeding the kittens milk replacement and bottles. But I have a question.
I dont know what that stuff is . But i hope everything goes ok with the kittens. I like the liquid milk replacement, but the powder can be more convenient (sp) because once you open the liquid it goes bad fast.
Not letting you touch her stomach is another good indicator that she is expecting. Looks like you are doing a through job preparing for it. What have you put in the corner of your room? A box with some sort of old towel or blanket should do. It should have sides high enough to keep the kittens contained but low enough to lett the momma in and out easily. It is important to include a towel or something because newborns can't control their body temperature very well. It helps retain heat and keeps them close together. If one kitten gets seperated from the litter you will notice how quickly it becomes cold to the touch so make sure mama keeps them together. Sometimes she will get too antsy and move them around from place to place excessively. You might want to block off under you bed, your closets, so she can't get them into those areas and leave a kitten stranded. Also watch out for drafts in your room, its getting warmer but be aware of the kitten's comfort before turning on the fan or opening the air conditioning vent. Liquid milk replacer is more convienent but does go bad quicker. Its a personal preference. But you may want to meet with a vet or someone who has bottle-raised newborns before, in case Mama doesn't take to them. It is very easy to get milk into their lungs when bottle feeding kitten and others can help show you ways to reduce that risk, how to recognize when they are full or if they are eating enough, how to burp them and help them to eliminate. As for the link you posted, it looks like it is for diarrhea, which can quickly kill a young kitten. I wouldn't give it to them if mama is feeding them just fine, but if you are bottle feeding and they get diarrhea I would call the vet and ask what they think about giving it. Good luck!
Thank you very much! Right now we dont have a box we are looking for a basket or something for her. And I would gate off my room and close everything like the closet, ect. I will keep everyone posted and I hope that everything goes okay.
